Busy blogger and Youtuber, Irene Sarah, (the birthday girl’s mom) wasn’t originally planning on too big of a celebration for her daughter’s 3rd birthday due to coronavirus. Like most of us, she was settling for something smaller + risk averse; probably a party of three, with her husband + daughter-of-honor. Instead, Shumaila, from So Cal Event Planners, proposed the idea of a drive by birthday party (of epic proportions)!
It’s the epitome of turning lemons into lemonade! What was originally supposed to be a small + simple affair, ended up being, quite literally, the dreamiest birthday party ever! Irene provided the theme of pastel rainbows, and her music producer husband provided a fun spin – dubbing it Iya’s Threenage Dream as a *genius* nod to Katy Perry’s song! From there, the colorful celebration was nothing short of magic.
Cotton candy for everyone! Nicole Balsamo beautifully captures this magically precious day:
Drive By Dream
Because who doesn’t love some fruity popsicles on a hot, summer day? This Paleta Please cart is a great addition + an amazing pop of color to the pastel theme. A chic, teal invitation parked right in front for drive by guests.
Epic Birthday Party Setup!
Feel like you’re in a dream?? Kismet Event Design just pulled out all the poppy, pastel stops with this design + styling!
A cotton candy station with organic + fun flavors adorably on display for drive by guests, along with a cart for hands-on cotton candy creations! The Jolly Sheep provided the cute cart and joyfully adorned with on-theme balloon garland. Just too cute!
Rainbow signage + acrylic designs by Stars and Dreams Co. 🌈
The fun + magic literally never ends. Little Artist Party provided a fun station for the kids to paint ceramic rainbows and canvas prints. All with perfect take-home boxes to continue the fun!
Look At All The Magic
Another precious offering is this LA Chai Cart, providing both hot + cold beverage options. Trays were passed to onsite guests with to-go cups prepped for the drive by guests as well!
The colors! The styling! The balloons! Balloon Avenue Events created the most inviting setup. A perfect fit for the little threenage birthday princess.
All The Sweets
Minis By Mara provided all sorts of goodies for this dreamy birthday party! All delightfully on display were their famous chocolate dipped treats; along with delicious knafeh in cupcake sized packages by Knafeh Queens. Just so much yum!
It isn’t a party without cake, right?! Sweetest Gallery created an *epic* rainbow cake for sweet Iya, and we’re holding back tears from not having any.
Happy Threenage Dream, Iya
Wow! What a magical, rainbow adventure. Happiest birthday wishes to sweet Iya from GWS; and hugs to her family!
