This year marked Ashni's last big birthday party (we have them between the ages of 4 and 10), so it was a big deal for her to choose a theme that she really loved. The one thing that she loves most (other than food) is Janelle Monáe. She loves her style and her music, so it was only fitting that she chose to have a Janelle Monáe themed dance party.
Our two year-old, Little Pilot, loves his lawn mower. It goes on walks with us and he even pushes it around in the winter. When we asked him what type of birthday party he wanted, he naturally responded with "leikkuri" (Finnish for lawn mower). So we threw him a lawn mower party!
Charlotte loves Peter Pan so we went with a full-on Peter Pan-themed party. Our backyard was the perfect setting to transform into the areas of Neverland: Pixie Hollow, the Lost Boys Hideout and Pirate's Cove.
