Molly’s Mermaid (6th) Birthday Party…

I cut a corner and purchased high-end cupcakes from walmart. They are filled with corresponding yumminess. Left-right: strawberry, vanilla, and lemon. I had molly put colored “pearls” on each cupcake to make them more mermaid style.

starfish sandwiches…I left them imprinted instead of totally cut out because I didn’t want to waste food.

Dining in “the sea” to keep them from making a huge mess on my carpet (plastic table cloth).

Pearlized balloon garland using this simple idea of using a needle to thread them! (took me like 5 minutes to do)

More decor (reusing my birthday flowers since they are stars).

About stacey

I am the Mom of two young, rambunctious girls, a curious little boy, and a wee little man who is bursting with joy for life. I just wanted to do something for myself that allowed me to harness the magical moments of being a Mom. (A job that sometimes feels thankless, misunderstood, and considered easy by those that haven't done it.) I wanted to be more positive by looking more closely at the good things that happen every day via photos and my thoughts.
