Laelah turned 3!!! (DIY balloon backdrop details)

Tuesday we celebrated Laelah’s 3rd Birthday,it’s honestly so bizarre how quickly she is growing up, she is so bright and beautiful. Khalil and I could not be any prouder!💕

So what exactly did we do for her big day?

Laelah loves my friend Gardenia and her daughter Norah so she honestly just requested their presence. In conjunction to us all being together Khalil and I thought it would be cool to create a balloon back drop for pictures! The backdrop we created consisted of balloons,confetti,twine,white wrapping paper and required lots of patience! 🤣 Pinterest made this project look so easy! After several ballon lives were lost and about 2 &1/2 hours of blowing up and placing balloons we finally completed something that looks pretty cool!

We also added photos that she had taken on her birthday from previous years as well as our most recent fall photo shoot!

This project was a little stressful and annoying but it was all worth it when we saw her face light up the next morning!

Party!

We found an indoor playground in Nuremberg;Tucherland. We all drove to the location together but unfortunately we were disappointed. The customer service was incredibly upsetting as the front receptionist would not allow us to bring cupcakes.(I verified with the website and it stated that cake and or cupcakes were allowed for birthdays.) the worker also had an attitude and understandably American bank cards did not work with their machine. The worker told me that both cash and euro would be applicable but when my friend attempted to give her both forms of payment she denied her. Upset we just decided to have a little party right outside of the building. Laelah opened her gifts and we enjoyed a few pumpkin cupcakes courtesy of Gardenia!💕 We latter had dinner at a Chinese restaurant. Children are so pleased and thankful for the simplest things and this is a trait I hope Laelah does not grow out of. She didn’t need a crazy party that cost tons of money, several friends or a huge cake,Laelah was just so happy that she had her friend and her cupcakes!
