Our sweet Sophia turned 7 this month so what better way than to celebrate with an L.O.L. Surprise Birthday Bash at Great Wolf Lodge! This was the first year that Sophia wanted to have a party at a location that was not our house and I must admit that it made me cringe inside when I realized that I wouldn't be able to decorate the hotel room as much as I would if we were at home. Nevertheless, I persisted to dream up ways to make this birthday memorable and how I could turn this creative challenge into a successful birthday bash! One of the first things I did for party prep was contact my girlfriend Malisa from CreativeAmme for some lasercut cutouts of some of Sophia's favorite L.O.L. Dolls. I knew she could help me with my vision for some handpainted wooden 'Dolls' and boy did she deliver! The cutouts were adorable on their own but I took extra time to paint them so they would POP even more!
The birthday weekend started off with some serious time in the indoor waterpark but once nighttime rolled around it was time to party! With limited space to decorate I worked to include as many custom details into this party as possible from the meticulously handpainted wooden L.O.L. Dolls to the personalized pastel water bottles to match the overall theme. Sophia and her grilfriends enjoyed delicious sweets and treats from another girlfriend of mine, Shelly from Soirees and Sweetness including glittery sugar cookies and a gorgeous 'Surprise Ball' cake flavored like a chocolate chip cookie! After the cake and presents were opened, the birthday girl and her girlfriends enjoyed an evening of dressing up as their favorite doll and walking in an impromtu fashion show!
