Miss Calla turned 4 earlier this week and we decided to celebrate with a mermaid/under the sea themed birthday party! It’s been almost 15 months since the height of the Covid-19 pandemic and this was our first time hosting a group of people other than our close close family members since then. It was a little scary but looking back I am so glad it happened. I hope to not only share all the cuteness of a 4-year-old’s mermaid birthday party but also talk about all the things that ran through our heads to plan a party in the safest manner we felt comfortable with.
Happy Holy Week everyone! Is it just me or did Easter happen, like, waaay early this year? It’s a little overwhelming for me when I think about how fast in general this year is going. It’s going to be April soon! WHAT!?
Anyways, let’s get on to the reason why you all are here…last minute Easter basket ideas! I have put together 2 Easter baskets this year: one for a 3 year old toddler girl and one for a 1 year old baby girl. Easter was actually the first holiday we celebrated last year after coming home from the hospital with Miss Blu. This is great news for me this year because I already had her basket and liner purchased! Ah, first world problems.

Calla has been two for over an entire month…or so… I figured it might as well be time for me to share with you all the highlights of her entire second birthday party day! At least I got to it before she turned 18, right? 🙂 It was a beautiful day, hot but cloudy so not the unbearable heat we’ve been dealing with here more recently. We had some of our closest friends and family over for a more intimate affair & Calla still calls our dining room her birthday room. <3 Here’s a small glimpse why…
