Bella's Birthday Bash!

Our theme this year was Littlest Pet Shop (huge surprise huh Christina?? LOL!) Every other year was Disney Princess so it was truly different! I have to give a big shout out to Birthday Express (www.birthdayexpress.com) for yet another easy birthday!!! I love getting their packages which are great quality and everything is included!!!
center piece - totally tore it apart afterwards to use for cards, lol!
Complete table
We put crepe paper on EVERYTHING!
Favor boxes
Seriously the world's ugliest cake EVER!! Hot pink and purple frosting?? Ugh! But Bella loved it so that's all that matters. I guess. Next year? I'm totally making my own!
Bella wouldn't let ANYONE touch "her" balloon. She was so proud of it!
About to open presents - SO DARN HAPPY!
Her haul!
Two new sets of LPS from us
From Grandpa
Great book and Walmart gift card

Instant popularity, lol!

Opening Jilli's present
LOVE this card Rachel made for her! She decorated the bag too!
Awesome handmade pillow for The Bella!

Little help from Daddy!
Barbie doll dresses!
New box to hold LPS goodies!
These girls went NUTZ over these!!

Time to play!
One more present!

All the girls!
Ugly cake and ice cream for everyone, lol!
This was a FABULOUS birthday!!

HI I have been MIA all summer and finally am back online and wow your blog looks great!

What a GREAT Party!

I have lots of catching up to do!

Christina said...

WOW so glad she had an awesome birthday. That was cool

Deanna said...

What fun! All those decorations and presents everywhere! Are you sure it isn't Christmas? Her grins coulddn't get any bigger.

Great job with the decor and theme! I love planning parties, especially for little ones because they LOVE parties where as adults could take them or leave them.

Bella looked so cute all dressed up for her party! And geez, she made a haul didn't she? Glad the party went well, even if the cake was ugly I'm sure the kids didn't think so!

Pam said...

What an awesome birthday for Bella! I bet the kids loved the cake regardless of how it looked. : )

I've done birthday express parties and they are nice. It looks like a wonderful day for her. I love the crepe paper everywhere. And that little box filled with LPS stuff would have entertained my kids for several days at least! Super cool! Bella looks beautiful and happy!

The minute I saw that center piece I thought .oO(I can soooo see her using that for cards!). Mostly, it's because I would have done the same thing! Hey, why not? It's not going to be needed for this purpose again...it's recycling!

Kristina P. said...

Oh, everything looks so great! They all had such a great time, clearly!

Eva Gallant said...

Looks like a great party!

SITS to say hi! hope you'll do the same.

I love how all the hands were diving in after the toys. :)

She is one lucky little lady. That was an incredible birthday!

Mimi said...

It looks like a great time was had by all.

I had to laugh, because when I got to the cake picture, I thought, damn, that's ugly & Jeannie never has ugly stuff, lol.

Cherie said...

What a cute little girl party! I miss those :D

Rosie said...

Happy Birthday to Bella! Did the cake taste good at least?

Vickie said...

Cool party favors! Looked like alot of fun! My girls would have been all over them Littlest Pet Shop Animals! Nice Stash!

Heather said...

Looks like it was a fun party! Those LPS guys look cute, but seem they'd be everywhere (with my daughter anyway!).

It looks like she had the time of her life.
