My gorgeous girl Stella turned 7 last month, so you know we had to celebrate in style! Stella is obsessed with all things pink, and recently is in love with all things panda. So, since it was during the summer, we decided to have a pink panda pool party for my little girl! Every detail was so perfect, and I’m so excited to share my picTORIal of the whole day with all of you. For this party I turned to Instagram to find some of the most creative and crafty DIY ladies to help make this into the ultimate Panda Party!
The dessert table… beyond!!! Keep reading for details on the cake and other amazing desserts. And that gorgeous backdrop!
Happy birthday #Stella!
Because it was a pool party, we needed towels!! So Clairebella made these gorgeous custom towels for Stella and her guests. LOVE the pink chevron print!
Pool party chic with our Clairebella towels!

Stella wanted Chinese food, to go with the Panda theme, so we had eggrolls, fried rice, chow mein, and of course fortune cookies!
The birthday girl was loving it!
