Rainbows and Unicorns have certainly made their comeback since the Rainbow Brite days that I remember as a kid. And lucky little Lucy got the most epic sparkle birthday bash of a lifetime last fall. This is an event I will forever remember because it was the moment I stepped out on my own. Forrest and J went from a little dream to a reality overnight. We were featured on 100 Layer Cakelet and highlighted as one of the TOP Kid's Birthday Parties of 2016!
Lucy may have been turning 9, but she was going on 15 and we needed to make this rainbow bash extremely ultimate and cool. We decided on a head table for Lucy and her 9 best friends to sit around and enjoy their summer juice in colored glass. This brought immediate cool factor and with MV Florals designing a stunning rainbow spectrum mantle piece, she was the envy of every girls birthday dreams come true.
I was given so many special and super fun requests by the birthday girl. One being a candy and popcorn bar for movies on the lawn at dusk in their gumdrop bean bags. I probably have a more refined sweet tooth than I do for fine wine, so of course I contacted my friends and local Newport Beach candy shop B. Candy. The store makes you feel like a kid again and their rainbow cakes are a must if you've never tried. We also wanted a wow moment so Sweet and Saucy Shop came up with a rainbow unicorn floaty cake for the dessert tower. Did you see the little fun Ban.do 'Herbie' the heart cookies?!
Dancing the day and night away is what these kids did best! A pool house turned into a sparkling dance hall with gold disco balls shinning from the sky.
Thank you to everyone who contributed on this amazing party! We couldn't have done it without this amazing group of vendors.
