It’s my baby girl’s 7th birthday. This year, due to quarantine, it was just us with her grandparents and aunts and uncles but we are hoping to have a bigger party with her cousins and friends in a couple of weeks. I wanted her birthday to be special and we were lucky to have beautiful weather to make it a memorable evening.
A few days ago, I asked Layan what type of cake she wanted, she said an Orca cake! So Layan and Layla baked a cake, I used buttercream to add a wave effect and hubby made an orca with fondant. She loved it!
The set up turned out great. I re-used the balloon garland I made a few weeks ago and added a few blue balloons. We decided on an Ocean-themed party. The balloon garland was supposed to be the coral with the table set up as “under the sea.”
The popcorn machine and snow cone machine were a big hit and it was great for a hot summery day! My mom made appetizers and cute cupcakes and I used the girls bath toys to decorate the table. Everything turned out great!
I have a chalkboard I use every year for the girls’ birthdays. It’s so easy to do and it’s such a great way to show what the girls’ like and to describe their ever-changing personality.
Cutting cake and blowing candles was so much fun! It was so windy so it took us a while to keep the candles lit but it worked after a few attempts. It’s so worth it to capture these moments. We love you baby girl, hope you had a memorable birthday!
