This is the first year we have gone all out for William’s birthday. William’s first 2 birthdays were small gatherings and we didn’t decorate. William’s 3rd birthday was spent in Australia/Bali… we were traveling and it wasn’t the best way to spend a birthday. He is always so easy going so for his 4th birthday I felt like he really deserved to be celebrated.
William asked for a dinosaur themed birthday party and while Big Little Parties was setting up he walked in, looked at the decor and gasped while holding out his hands with his jaw dropped then said “I can’t believe it, I can’t believe it!” They did such a beautiful job making Williams birthday dreams come true! They do such an amazing job paying attention to detail. The ladies behind Big Little Parties put so much into their work and you can tell how much they love it. I highly recommend you use them for your next celebration! They come to your house, set everything up perfectly, and do the take down. It was SO helpful having them on the day of to make my day that much easier! They can do themed birthday parties, cute tent sleepover parties, spa parties… truly anything you can think of, they can do! Check them out at @BigLittlePartiesYYC on instagram to see what they are up to next!
Cassandra from eARTh Art Studio came to do art with the kids and she is a SWEETHEART. She is very patient and gentle natured. The kids took turns having some one-on-one time with her while making dinosaur terrariums. All the kids were able to take these home and they were so proud of what they made! When the kids weren’t doing art with her she was playing with them! Cassandra from eARTh also teaches art classes out of her licensed home studio! I am not a very artistic (or overly patient) person so I am really excited to get my kiddos into some classes with her!!! Follow @eARThyyc on instagram for fun projects Cassandra does with kids!
Sprog & Sprocket came to drop off some soft play rentals and a ball pit rental for the kids to play in and it was unreal. Michael said it was like having 4 extra adults to watch the kids. They honestly played so well and were patient with one another while having a BLAST. It is a great kids party idea! Sprog & Sprocket can set up play spaces in your home or rented space. They also now offer pick-up rentals that you can keep for the day! We had a ball pit and their six piece toddler soft play package called the Lil’ Roller. When you combine to make a package you save! Either of the options we had can fit into a full size minivan, large SUV or truck! They are also the only company in North America that has a Portable Indoor Play Centre that you can rent! NOTE: Everything, including each and every ball, are cleaned and sanitized after use! You can find them on instagram at @sprogsprocket.
Being plant based can be tricky when it comes to treats for birthdays! Especially when it comes to things you didn’t make yourself… Baking isn’t my favourite thing to do and as I have said before, I am not very artistic. THANKFULLY Sugarbakers Cookie Co. IS and was able to make the most beautiful vegan and gluten free cookies for the party. I always want to have different options for those with dietary restrictions when they come to our house so these cookies were just perfect for that. Michelle and her mom run the business together and I think that is extra sweet (sweet, see what I did there?) I would definitely recommend getting yourself some of these beautiful cookies for your next celebration! Watch their stories on @SugarbakersCookieCo for inspo!
Thank you to everyone who came to be part of the birthday and an extra big thank you to everyone who helped! Because we had so much help the day went by so smoothly. There was way less CHAOS than I thought there would be.
I cannot wait for his 5th birthday party!!
