This post is extra special to us because its our little girl, MiaBella’s 1st Birthday! When we were searching for a theme for this extra special 1st birthday girl, we wanted to do something that everyone could enjoy. Once we found the venue, the Historical Virginia Key Beach Park in Key Biscayne, Florida, we knew that the theme had to be a carnival.
To create a carnival, there were a couple must haves…we needed a large tent, a ticket booth, carnival games, prizes, lots of candy, colorful balloons, animal crackers, pin wheels, cotton candy, popcorn, peanuts, snow cones, gold fish, stilt walkers, face painting and a carousel. With these ingredients, we would create a fun filled carnival for our family and friends.
Our ring leader, MiaBella, made a grand entrance into her big top, and welcomed all of her guests. Her outfit was customized by Tutti Bambini in South Miami. (If your a mom, aunt, grandmother, godmother, or a friend who likes to spoil her friends kids, you have to visit Tutti Bambini! They have the cutest outfits, bows, accessories, everything you may ever want or need for your little ones!) Together we created the perfect little outfit for this beautiful little girl. We found her tights and embroidered bloomers on Bella Claire Baby storefront on Etsy.
This past year, we took MiaBella to numerous carousels and she loved every second of it. It was important for us to find a venue that we could incorporate a carousel into our carnival. One of the best parts of Virginia Key Beach Park is that it has a vintage carousel that MiaBella and our guests were able to enjoy.
MiaBella’s birthday cake was created by Sweet Designs. Dayanna designed the cake exactly how we wanted it. We couldn’t have been more happier! Our favorite part of the day, was seeing our little girls face light up when she heard her name in the Happy Birthday song! It proved that one year olds can and do enjoy their first birthday.
Some of are guests clowning around and having a fabulous time!
It was such an amazing day and it has been an unforgettable new journey for us. We could not have done it without the love and support of our parents, family and our friends. Each of you play a very special role in MiaBella’s life. We are so thankful to all of our vendors for making this day spectacular: Virginia Key Beach Park, Island Party Rental, JC BBQ for Kids, Daze Photography, CMD Productions, Sweet Designs & Lourdes and her girls at Tutti Bambini.
Thank you to all of our family and friends that came and enjoyed MiaBella’s 1st Birthday!
