I officially have a five year old! Liam turns 5 years old today and it’s such a big milestone. 1st, 5th, 10th, 13th, 16th, 18th, and 21st birthday are so significant. Personally, I feel that those are the birthdays that we remember and cherish the most. Even though Liam is getting older every single day, I’m always still in shock when he says things that older children would typically say. Like, asking for a drone! How does he even know what that is?! When I was five, I’m pretty sure I was asking for a Polly Pocket, lol.
Even though we’ve been in quarantine for the last 4 months and weren’t able to invite our friends over, we wanted to celebrate big. We miss all of our friends so much but are extremely thankful to have a such a huge close family.
Liam was bouncing all over the house. After making our rounds with taking tons of pictures for memories, he was painting his rockets, eating all the food, running around with his cousins and brother, going down the water slide (which my close friend, Dawn, who is so so sweet brought over), and enjoying his special day. He had such a happy day. He couldn’t stop smiling and that’s all that I can hope for on this birthday.
Liam requested for a space theme birthday and all of these vendors below really made his imagination come to life. Our space balloon garland was breathtaking. As soon as Liam walked into the house, his face lit up. Every single detail was put in and we couldn’t have been happier.
Of course, there isn’t a birthday party without a birthday cake and sweets. Savannah’s Treats did an amazing job on our space theme cake and cookies and it was delicious. We got chocolate with Nutella and buttercream and Liam is still asking to eat the rest of it for breakfast.
I started seeing huge Marquee lights about a year ago and love how bold of a statement it is. We loved having it in the front yard. Liam is already telling everyone that it’s his birthday so the lights helped shared the big day!
My grandma cooked pho for Liam’s party since our family loves traditional Vietnamese food but because Tommy’s family and my siblings enjoy other dishes, Le Modern Box made this yummy charcuterie board for us! As soon as I told my family they could eat it, they went to town. It’s a great way to eat and interact!
Candles are something that I usually run to the grocery store at the very last minute so I wanted to get these huge Celebrite candles for Liam for it to be a fun and big statement. Since we have tons of children in my family, the other children tend to get sad when they aren’t able to blow out candles so I think it’s a great way for the children to enjoy it together PLUS the cake avoids children’s spit LOL.
Yash has always taken our photos! He does such an amazing job capturing all the moments and my family were so happy with the photos. It was funny because as a big family, we don’t get the chance to all come together to get professional photos so my grandparents were pulling him left and right to get him to take pictures. It was so funny and he was amazing about it!
