5th Birthday Party Celebration
While we were celebrating Bobbi Elle’s 4th Birthday...strolling down Main Street at Disney’s Magic Kingdom….after spending the day with her favorite princesses…having a VIP dinner with 5 of her closest girlfriends at Cinderella’s castle…my little diva declared: “For my 5th birthday – I want an Alice in Wonderland themed party!”
*Insert record scratch here*
Ummmmm…can we get thru year FOUR, please????
This is Bobbi Elle. Always thinking ahead. Planning. Strategizing. She’s a little too much like me and it’s scary.
I told her: 1) RELAX. And 2) Enjoy the moment. We have plenty of time to plan year 5.
“Ok. But I want Calyann to be the Mad Hatter and you will be the Evil Queen!”
Great. Thanks, Bobbi…

She got her wish (of course!)
Now some of you may be aware that we have several celebrations for my kids birthday. And here’s why: I have a huge family and they have a ton of cousins their age. They also have a ton of friends at school that they love to hang out with. So sometimes – we just have to do two. One main party and a smaller celebration at school…and yes – they get to pick a theme park of their choice to spend the day. Cause we live in Miami and nothing is more than 3 hours away…and we pay for annual passes to most of the theme parks…and dammit I’m gonna get my money’s worth….and they only turn this age once…and I fully enjoy the process just as much as they do….so can I live??? And based on my explanation – can you tell that I’m constantly told I am “doing the most” – and I constantly have to respond with these answers?? Ha!
Back to the party!
So she got her wish…..and I found the perfect venue for her tea party at Serendip-A-Tea in South Miami. The tea room is small and quaint, so we rented it out and invited 20 of her closest friends/cousins and 20 adults. The place was super cute – so little decor was needed.
The menu consisted of tea sandwiches, quiche and tomato basil soup for the adults, while the kids munched on mac and cheese, chicken fingers and pizza. For dessert, we offered macaroons, Rice Krispy cards, lavender cookies, brownies, and madeleines. And lots of tea!!!! It was all so delicious!!!!
And can we discuss the detail and gorgeousness of the cake??!! Designed by none other than – Divine Delicacies.
The kids had a blast…the parents had some adult fun…and Bobbi got her wish…along with a special surprise visit from Alice and The Mad Hatter!
And yes – she already knows what she wants to do for her 6th Birthday: A Troll’s Party.
