What was your most memorable birthday celebration? It was probably a day celebrated with family with lots of food and smothered with smiles laughter. Perhaps it was during your first trip out of the country where new sights dazzled you or maybe it was a party that you threw for your class way back in grade school. We all have our own stories and we remember them fondly. For Bella, however, she decided that a mini makeover with her girlfriends was the best way to celebrate her 9th birthday.
The moment I entered Pink Me Up, I had a sense that it was going to be an intimate celebration. There were only a limited number of seats and the place seemed just right for little people to roam around and spend the afternoon talking and catching up with each other the way close friends do.
One of the more deliciously extravagant details that I naturally gravitated to was the dessert/candy table. From cake pops to macarons to pretzels and candies, the colorful spread done by Box of Sweets was a sweet tooth magnet. I found myself hovering over the goodies way too long but eventually took notice of the other exquisite details made by the other talented collaboraters in this editorial. The paper goods were made by Anna Cristobal while the slippers and robes that Bella and her friends donned were crafted by Bella’s mom herself.
The place also had a chevron balloon backdrop which was made by Candidly Pretty. Bella and her friends posed in front of it and made sure that they had their “photobooth” moment right after they were all made up. The pièce de résistance was a gorgeous chevron-inspired cake lovingly created by Stellar Cakes by Hershey Tagulinao. From the cool, pastel blues and blushing pink hues to the main flower piece in front with gold accents, the cake was incredibly breathtaking. You almost never wanted to eat it. Of course, no makeover birthday would be complete without the host handing out take home treats to their guests. For this, Bella presented each of her girlfriends a friendship bracelet lovingly crafted by Knots O’ Love
It was a simple celebration with her closest friends: a time for pampering, different hairstyles, crazy nail polish combinations, yummy treats and an afternoon to remember.
Here’s the entire set. I hope you become inspired for your kids’ future birthdays. Cheers!
