Big Bubbles & Painting at the Park: Molly's 5th Birthday! - Sara May Photography

My dear little Molly is now 5 years old. Five. If I look in the rear view, it seems like ages since she was a baby. I’ve completely forgotten what it’s like to have a giant belly and a dependent little one. Molly is an independent go-getter, which is partly why I feel like she’ll be turning into a teenager at any second.

It was a whirlwind of celebrations this year for Molly. After her birthday party we got on a plane and flew out to a family reunion where we again celebrated her birthday. Lucky duck. 😉 But the real party, here in Portland was a blast. I spent way too much time making the backdrop for her dessert table. (Anyone want it? It’s sitting in the closet right now!) And we entertained the kiddos with canvas painting and giant bubble-making. It was a blast. The lollipops were a huge hit, as were the mini cupcakes from Saint Cupcake.

What kid doesn’t love GIANT BUBBLES? Random children were leaving the nearby playground to come and see these huge bubbles floating around. (Cell phone photos, my apologies)

Lastly, I wanted to throw up this cute side-by-side comparing this adorable trio of girls. From Molly’s 4th Birthday (Left Side) and from this year at her 5th (Right Side). Look at how much these adorable friends have grown together over the past year. Losing those baby faces just a little bit each year. Love them to pieces!

Happy 5th Birthday, beautiful daughter!

Love, Mom

    I love this! I want to craft my son’s 2nd birthday somewhat like this but with a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme. I love the giant bubbles though and the painting. What kind of paint did you use? Something quick dry? And where can I find a canvas board like the one pictured?

    Would love your help!

    Thanks!

    I love your dessert backdrop.❤️ If you have no need for it, would you please pass it on to me? I could use it for our back to school picnic get together at my son’s non profit nursery school. Will save me time since I help organize their parties.
