Our Little Mermaid  |  Kiki's List

A couple of weeks ago, our little Lou turned seven.  She wanted a mermaid party inspired by her last Halloween costume.  It was so much fun designing the details.

Our Little Mermaid  |  Kiki's List Melissa custom-made these invitations for us.  Our Little Mermaid  |  Kiki's ListLou was so excited for the day of her party to finally arrive.Our Little Mermaid  |  Kiki's ListLuckily, her theme matched our porch.  😉Our Little Mermaid  |  Kiki's ListMint is Lou’s favorite color, so it made things very easy.

However, I had the brilliant idea of surprising the girls with goldfish thinking that they could double as centerpieces.  (I know, I am a maniac.)  I figured it was a great lesson in responsibility.  Much to my chagrin, my girls are far more responsible than I thought… I also learned that these goldfish can live up to 40 years.  Yowsa.Our Little Mermaid  |  Kiki's ListBut they love them.  Lou named hers Sparkles, and E named hers Lucky.Our Little Mermaid  |  Kiki's ListJust two more animals on this crazy farm… but back to the decorations…

Last weekend we celebrated Anna Lou’s 6th birthday.  When I asked where she wanted to have it, without hesitation she voted for Little Pincushion Studio.  My girls adore Annabel and her classes.  If we only lived closer, they’d be there everyday!
