We celebrated our new seven-year old over the weekend with a Pool & Popsicle party, such a perfect theme for our summer girl!!! After three consecutive years of joint birthday parties for Waverly + Avalon, the girls crushed my dreams this year by asking for individual parties. I really LOVED them sharing, for selfish reasons because so much easier and it was also super cute to see them together, but I ended up having so much fun creating something personalized for each of them. Waverly loooooves the pool and it also is so representative of her right now since this is her first year on swim team, and the pretty pastel colors we used are so true to her girly personality.
We teamed up with the cutest shop, Coterie Party, on the paper products (including the fans + balloons) — you can find the set here. This was SUPER EASY, I highly recommend them since I really didn’t have to think about much else as far as decor. I also used some beach balls I found on Amazon and these ended up being really fun for the kids during the party. We did favors — bubbles, popsicle cookies (made by my talented sister-in-law!), and popsicle molds filled with candy. Entertainment is always so easy with a pool party, the kids got out to eat pizza, popsicles + do cake, but otherwise swam their little hearts out and had the best time!
And the best reminder that our babies are always our babies, Waverly is always so nervous about the birthday song — this year was no different and she would only agree to it if I held her hand and stayed close the entire time. 🙂 Happiest SEVEN to my forever baby girl, we loved celebrating YOU! XO
