NYC Birthday Party by Laura Aguirre
Since starting school last year, my son Jordan learned all about the Statue of Liberty from his kindergarten teacher. Since then, he’s been fascinated with Lady Liberty and all things New York city! He was very specific about some of the party details for his upcoming 6th birthday, and I truly enjoyed working together with him on his NYC themed birthday party!
Each party guest had a chance to wear their own Lady Liberty crown. I found a free download from Paging SuperMom. The crowns helped get everyone in the NYC party mood!
One of the party activities my son wanted to do was paint with his friends! I contacted this wonderful site called Social Artworking. They were wonderful to work with! The guests, and especially my birthday boy, had such a fun time painting their very own picture of the Statue of Liberty.
The party stayed pumped up with a cool DJ, and some karaoke!
Jordan’s #1 party request was to have a Statue of Liberty cake! We immediately called Sweet Talk Bake Shoppe to see what she could do for us. She created this darling cake with a fondant cityscape and cake pop apples on the top. I added some clip art prints of the Empire State Building and Lady Liberty. The birthday boy loved it, and that was the goal!
Not only was the Statue of Liberty cake birthday boy-approved, he also loved the cookies and mini cupcakes that were made – also from the Sweet Talk Bake Shoppe. I love how the desserts popped against the checkered table cover!
Jordan the birthday boy had such a great time with his friends and family! He looked so cute in his custom made NYC birthday crown, from Shawna Brockmeier Styled Events. He even announced on the DJ’s microphone that this was the best birthday party he ever had!
