Under the Sea Birthday Party Post-pandemic

Hi lovelies!

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.

A very Pandemic Pink Rainbow First Birthday

Um…hi

Wow, I mean it’s been months since we’ve “spoken”, right? I have to say, this whole pandemic thing shook me. Like, shook me to my core. And unfortunately my poor little blog suffered. I miss this. I missed you all. Now that we can see “normal life” on the horizon, I feel better about jumping back in. Don’t forget that if I’m ever scarce in presence here on the Sykes Fam blog then you can always find me over on Instagram or on YouTube.

My littlest turned one a weekish ago and we celebrated a very pandemic first birthday. Can you even believe that! It was just us with a couple really close family members and we spent the day together celebrating Miss Blu. If you’re new around here you may not know that I don’t share my children’s faces online. I’m actually considering removing all physical and verbal mention of them on my social media but that’s another story for a different day. For now, please enjoy this sweet photo of her high-chair set up.
