Poesy's 6th Birthday

Poesy's 6th Birthday
Welp, my baby is 6.  Yep, you heard me right... Poesy is 6.  It's hard for me to wrap my brain around all the time that has passed since I was holding her tiny body in my arms and listening to her baby-babbling, but here we are.  She requested a Shopkins birthday this year and I did my best to fulfill those dreams.  Poesy and I have birthdays 4 days apart, so stuffing all of the celebrations into one weekend can be a tiny bit challenging.  On the other hand, two parties in one weekend?  (Read: two birthday cakes in one weekend?!)  Well, I'm always on board for a party.

My Shopkins-obsessed darling really wanted to have a party at home with her friends.  Of course, I LOVE this because one day kids tend to outgrow that (at least, that's my experience with Hope). Poesy requested a themed cake, so I went to work coming up with a cute one.  (I ended up being really happy with it, btw!)  She picked her dress from a costume place online and it was perfect for the occassion.  The rest was easy-- 1.) Buy cute plates, cups, candles, etc.  2.) Poesy puts on all of the accessories in her jewelry box.  3.) Invite friends over for a good time!

We had a dance party, played "drop the Shopkins in the milk jug", and had a very, VERY cold piñata experience.  It was a great day and my girl had the time of her life.  Mission: accomplished.

Oh, and here is what my super-sweet/smart/loving/social/talented/animal-loving girl looked like on her official birthday:

Happy birthday, Poesy girl.  Happy 6 years of making our lives better.  Even the weather sings a different tune to make your big heart smile!

Love, Mama

  5. This has got to be one of the cutest little parties for a sweet little girl. Happy Birthday, Poesy! My kids are older so I had never heard of Shopkins before but the cake and decorations turned out perfectly. Good job, Katie :-)
