Guests were treated to one ‘sweetheart’ of a party for Avery’s 1st birthday. Held at the Boca Raton Children’s Museum just after Valentine’s Day, guests arrived in the morning and had free reign of the entire museum and enjoyed time in different areas including a grocery store, bank and dress-up room. Guests crafted personal crowns and then were escorted to the party room which was decorated in a sweetheart theme. Guests then enjoyed treats ranging from cupcakes to heart-shaped cookies and pink cake pops and serenaded the birthday girl in a sea of bubbles before she dove into her birthday cake.

The hanging wall of paper hearts was definitely a unique aspect of the decor and handcrafted! Stacey (Avery’s mom) bought several dozen different scrapbook papers in red, pink and heart-themed designs, and cut out over 300 paper hearts by hand, creating the wall of “floating” hearts (strung from clear fishing wire). Stacey also used the heart scrapbook paper to create paper flower pinwheels which were used in vases as the table centerpieces.
AVERY’S SWEET SHOPPE
The dessert table (“Avery’s Sweet Shoppe”) was filled with goodies, including cupcakes, pink and red jellybeans, heart-shaped pretzels dipped in chocolate, pink cake pops, red licorice sticks, and heart-shaped chocolates.
