Party Recap

We decided a few years ago that for Zion's 5th birthday, we would venture to Disney... Shortly after that decision, we made a family secret and set to planning. Because she had no idea, Zion set to party planning. She chose the theme (which was perfect) and was so excited to help mommy make 100+ hair bows.

I LOVE pink but I know that 90% of the parties I plan for her are pink so, we went for the original color combo - red, black, white and pops of yellow.
