Magical Christmas Birthday
We celebrated Nola’s 5th Birthday party and it was so special and sweet. We bought together a close group of her girlfriends to spend the day eating cake, decorating gingerbread houses, and sipping on hot chocolate! Its been one of her favorite things to do in the cold weather so I thought her friends would enjoy it too. Since she has her birthday in December I try and make it special even with all of the holiday celebration going on, because she is a special girl!
My dear friend Jamie designed and planned this whole party and I have to give her so much applause! I let her have full creativity and she did nothing but exceed my expectations. She is my go to for any special events and rehearsal dinners and weddings too! Book her quick because everyone loves her work, but it is so worth it. She created a coffee and “mom-osa” bar for the adults and it was a huge hit. We had Bantam and Biddy cater as well as Jason’s Deli and it was so perfect for a cozy start to the day.
Since we had gingerbread decorating we had a candy bar set up for that, so everyone could dig in and decorate. We had mini individual cakes for each girl to make them feel so special and because they are just so delicious you want one all to yourself. We had a special big one just for Nola and it was so stunning! Not only are these cakes pretty but they are seriously so good I could eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! So yummy.
Jaime recommended one of her dear friends, Danielle, who hand lettered all of the beautiful signs at the table and the Christmas ornaments. I wanted to have a personal gift for each girl to bring home and she had the best idea! The ornaments are shatter proof (perfect for kids) and she hand lettered each girls name beautifully across. Everyone loved it and it’s a special gift they can cherish and remember Nola’s birthday. A huge thanks to her and I highly recommend checking her out for all your personalized ideas!
I hope you find some beautiful inspiration because this was such a special moment and loved every second of this day! Make sure you check out the party Jamie designed for our youngest back in April. It was the cutest boho inspired 1st birthday party.
