As an Enneagram 7 (the Enthusiast), parties are one of my favorite things. I love all aspects of gatherings - the planning, preparation, and the people, especially when it is for one of my kiddos. Maison was such a joy to celebrate and it was so fun to watch her eyes light up as all her buddies came over to our house, many of which for the first time!

Maison chose the theme of the party - rainbow pastel. Since it was a pretty similar palette to her fifth birthday, I was able to reuse a lot of the extra accessories I had leftover. (Yes, I hoard party supplies, it’s a problem).

Hiring Courtney of Savor Style to help was the best decision I could have made. In addition to creating the rainbow grazing board and flowers, she helped coordinate the cake from Dream Cakes, balloon arches and supplies from Party Pickup, party favors, and helped me source a delicious punch recipe (see below).

You know it is a successful party if the kids are wiped out, the guests linger, and the food, drinks and cake are completely devoured.
