Eva’s 3rd Birthday Party

Three.

Despite the whirlwind couple of weeks we have had, the party must go on! Initially, when I had planned Eva’s birthday party, I had expected that I would have a newborn that was a couple of weeks old, not a three day old baby!

And so Owen arrived the day before her birthday and I would still be in hospital for the big day and miss everything. But with both sets of grandparents in town from out-of-state and overseas, and with Eva having been counting down the days for more than 2 months—“I can’t wait my birthday” she would tell me on a daily basis—I knew I couldn’t postpone anything.

In the end, the day was perfect. Eva woke up to red balloons and a birthday breakfast. I was home with Owen by late afternoon for cake and candles in the evening. And on Saturday, we had her birthday party with all of her friends. There was pass the parcel, pin the tail on the donkey, party hats, and more cake.

Afterwards we were all exhausted—Eva took a nap for the first time in ages—, but it was the best day. On Sunday, Eva woke to tell me— “I can’t wait for Christmas!”

* Inspiration and resources

** Thanks to my mother-in-law for making Eva’s lovely cake and Sarah for taking some great shot while I was occupied with Owen.  

Amongst the chaos, our beautiful little girl, Eva Lilly, turned 3-years-old! There is nothing like holding a newborn in your arms to make you realise just how much Eva has grown. 

Happy 3rd Birthday!

Eva’s 3rd Birthday Party Inspiration

Time is moving far too quickly. It’s hard to believe that soon Eva will be turning three! 

It might seem strange that I’m already planning Eva’s birthday party, which isn’t for another two months, but by the time her birthday rolls around, we’ll have a newborn in the house — my due date is May 11 and Eva’s birthday is the 23rd!

And in some ways it might seem crazy that we’re planning to have a party at all; however, I’m very conscious of making Eva feel special once the baby boy is here. Skipping her birthday is not an option. 

As much as I’d love to go all out with a fun birthday theme like a vintage circus or a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, I’m trying to be realistic about what will be achievable. So we’re going back to basics. As far as Eva knows, birthdays are about an awesome cake with candles, lots of balloons and party hats. 

I’ve already purchased some "Happy" wrapping paper from Kikki K, which along with the geometric pattern, the colours will be the inspiration for decorations. I’ll order party hats from etsy, buy a silver  
"3" and confetti balloons, and my mother-in-law will make a two-tiered banana cake, as requested by Eva. Along with a few classic party games, the party will be short and sweet with the focus on the cutting of the cake!
