Mermaid Party, Take Two

Remember when I said that my friend Elise and I decided to go for the same theme for both of our daughter’s birthday parties, so we could share the decorations (both the cost and the labor)? It ended up being such a good idea.

I loved how Goldie’s party turned out – and Elise’s was absolutely spectacular (ok, it helps that she had a friend with an insanely beautiful house who offered to let her throw the party in the backyard). The coolest part: even though all the decorations and activities were the same at the two parties, they ended up feeling special and unique in both venues with just minor tweaks.

P.S. Elise totally got on board with me re: the “Safeway cupcakes and pizza delivery for children’s parties” – seriously, you guys: I am never cooking for one of these things again. Children do not notice or care; adults may notice but definitely don’t care; you notice but all you care about is the fact that you don’t have to cook for thirty people. Which is wonderful.

P.P.S. I made the cake pictured here (as you already know if you watched this video). I am fine with my medal being delivered in either the form of fine jewelry or hugs.

P.P.P.S I want to live in this house. Scroll down; I have a feeling you’ll want to, too.

(I knooooow. It occurred to me that maybe if I hid in a bush they wouldn’t notice and I could keep living here.)
