I love getting to put together special parties for my girls. I love that they can pick just about any theme they want and I can make it happen. This year Alyssa picked her birthday activity when her and I went to check out a wedding show. We walked in and across the room she spotted a spa bus. And that was the end of that. Spa bus it was. As her birthday drew closer we needed to finalize the details.
Turning 13 is harder to pick a theme for then turning 12 or even 14. We searched for weeks to find the perfect theme for her and her friends. What do all 13 year olds love…social media of course. I couldn’t personally tell you a thing about Instgram other than it is based on photographs but Alyssa loves it. I called in my best people and made this perfect 13th birthday happen for one of my favourite kids.
We had the invitations designed to look like a text message. Each girl had a personalized Instagram cupcake topper for their breakfast cupcake – yes cupcakes for breakfast. We had cake for dessert at supper, what was I going to do with the cupcakes we had to have. Heehee…
And their treat was a pack of InstaGum. Made by one of our designers using a regular pack of gum.
I took Alyssa with me to our supplier’s to pick out the linens she wanted for her table set up. I think her selection was perfect.
One of our favourite cake makers, Sugar House Cakes, made the cake and cupcakes for us. Not only super cute but also delicious!
