LittleLim's 3rd Flamingo-od Birthday


28.1.2018

I know I said no more parties... I can't help myself. I love throwing parties too much. Especially Birthday Parties for LittleLim. Just like that, I have planned three Birthday parties. Just like that my baby girl is now a little three year old girl. To be honest, I struggled a bit with this party because there was just too much happening. This party was really last minute with only 3 weeks to throw everything together. The good thing about three year olds, they don't know the difference between extravagant and simple, and I used that to my advantage here. 

I almost settled for a McDonald's themed party but it was rejected by Hubbycat. With three weeks to plan, I needed a miracle and a lot of cheating. Thankfully, there's Taobao for all my party needs. As I was searching for inspiration, LittleLim saw a picture of a flamingo float and since then has been reminding me about it. It was after a few times of her asking me to buy a flamingo float for her only did it click... a Flamingo Tropical themed party! That way I could get her the Flamingo Float and make it do it's time first. This year I had one goal - stay away from Pink and Peach. Yes, I know Flamingos are pink which is why I decided on it being a tropical party so I could incorporate my other love, loud colours!

Of course, I had to add stress to my stress and make it a pool party even though it had been raining cats and dogs for weeks prior to the party. But heck, I believed it would be sunny *fingers and toes crossed, prayers a plenty!* The only reason why I made it a pool party is because LittleLim is a water baby and so are her friends! This was a great way to get them all together and enjoy the pool that is so easily accessible from the function room. Also it means I have activities done since 3 year olds are better with unstructured parties anyway!

This year, we decided on a small party consisting of people that LittleLim is familiar with and really close family and friends only. We understood that LittleLim is no longer a baby and now, her parties are really her parties, not us adults. It was very intimate and I really liked that because I didn't have to go bouncing from groups to groups and of course, smaller group meant less planning. 









All the second children / first child siblings. I'm so blessed to have found an amazing support mommies group who are in the same stage in life. It always amazes people everytime I tell them that we all have second children just months apart. I can't imagine how my mom journey would be without them.

For food, we used the same caterers as BabyJ's fullmoon party (shucks, which reminds me... I've yet to blog or upload photos about that party >.< Sorry my second born child. I'll get to it) and as usual, they were great! Service and quality of food was top notch! After this party, they're definitely on my speedial. Email me if you'd like their contact too! 

Party packs consists of pool toys from Daiso and some yummy snacks. 

The flamingo cake is from Wondermilk.

Happy 3rd Birthday my first born. You're such a fiesty, fiery independent little girl. I am so amazed at how you're growing up so well with such a big personality. I'm so glad you enjoyed yourself playing in the water, blowing bubbles with your friends, sitting on the flamingo float and being surrounded by people who love you. You are the joy of our hearts and we are so honoured to be your parents. We love you baby. May your third year be filled with many achievements and favour.
