We took a trip to Disney Magic Kingdom in April 2021. Before then Lilli had no idea who Ariel The Little Mermaid or Buzz Light Year were until she rode both of those rides. She became completely obsessed with those two Disney Characters. When we asked her what kind of birthday party she wanted, she happily answered "I want Ariel Mermaid and Buzz Light Year party!"
We celebrated our big girl Lilli turning 3 with some of her favorite 'friends.'
Including 'Ariel' and her BFF Buzz Light Year.
Read & watch along for more from her exciting birthday!
its a photoshoot!
We kicked off the celebration early and decided to have a 'Mermaid Turning 3' photoshoot the day before her actual birthday. She picked out her purple tulle 'mermaid' dress to wear. During the last months leading up to her big day, she had been learning to say she was turning 3 on her birthday. She was so excited to count and hold three fingers up! Lilli enjoys getting in front of her dads camera, he knows how to make it lots of fun📸...
With mermaid being one of Lilli party themes, we used a beautiful mermaid tail balloon garland created by Babaloonz Balloons. It was such a magical creation, Lilli was mesmerized by it! The Mississippi based luxury balloon company provide the most amazing balloon art I have ever witnessed. No matter your assignment, they will execute and deliver. They use the best luxe balloons that last for weeks well beyond your event/party.
The mermaid tail was not only perfect for our backdrop but it now hangs in Lilli's bedroom as wall art...

Surprise, birthday morning w/ 'ariel!
The next morning, Lilli's birthday, She awoke to 'Ariel' awaiting to greet her with hugs and good morning birthday wishes. Following with Ariel having breakfast as her special invited guest. Lilli was ecstatic about the news. In that moment she became the happiest 3 year old.
Ryan and I were both anxious to see how she would react when she first laid eyes on the character. To everyone surprise she welcomed 'Ariel' with open arms as if she had been expecting her to be there for her birthday lol.
*Make sure to catch this moment in the video linked on this post*
The character surprise idea came about because previously in April 2020, we had a fully planned & booked trip to stay a week at a Disney resort w/character dinning included. Then of course the obvious happened; COVID hit...After doing some local research, we discovered 'Magically Perfect, LLC.!'
Did you know that you can hire an array of premium quality princesses, super-hero, & storybook characters in the central Mississippi area? This is a game changer, for those parents who would love to make their child wishes come true with a character experience! Magically Perfect, LLC is great for many reasons...
When I reached out about hiring 'Ariel' I was afraid what I wanted would be too much. Silly me, nothing was too much they made sure everything I wanted came to fruition. The character arrived prompt, ready & REAL for the role. She was warm and welcoming, Lilli was very comfortable talking with her. To make the experience sweeter, she actually sang one of the themed songs from The Little Mermaid movie. Ryan and I both were highly impressed with the character performance. Her voice mimicked the original track perfectly, to later find out all of Magically Perfectly, LLC. characters are professionally trained singers-BONUS!

To infinity and beyond...happy birthday lilli!
Anytime I mentioned Lilli wanted a Buzz Light Year (BLY) theme party, eyebrows were raised like, Really? Yes, really. Lilli is completely infatuated with him. When we were shopping around for her BLY theme party, it was kind of difficult. The last Toy Story  installment was in 2019, there was hardly any Toy Story party themed decorations/favors let alone BLY lol. However we made it happen😅...
Lilli was shocked with excitement when she entered her birthday party filled with family, friends, & BLY ready to celebrate her big day at a local indoor playground park🤗...
*Pay attention to her expressive excitement in the video*
all good things must come to an end...
Of course Lilli was saddened by the end of a full day celebrating her birthday🥺
Even though she had a very eventful one lol. When things settled back down at our house, we went out on our back lawn for final shots of her and her fav guy Buzz.
