The Great Gavini's Magic Show

The Great Gavini is my sweet little Chimp that loves magic, extra pickles and ketchup on everything.
For his 8th Birthday-he wanted a magic show mixed with tie dye, rainbows and sequins. Okay, okay, I am kinda lying about the sequins-those were my idea;) You know Glitta Mama needs to see shiny things.

The weather is NY is chilly-so we partied indoors for the most part. Clearly, I am neither a stylist nor photographer~just a Mama that loves to see her son smile with joy and celebrate with his besties. We had such a beautiful day. Abracadabra awesomeness.

Foil curtains made for a dramatic entrance on a windy day

He amazed the crowd.
He sat on his special magic carpet when he was done

note to self: if you let kids drink fruit punch, eat popcorn and inhale candy in your basement,
it will look like an after circus scene when they leave....dirty.

I cannot tell you enough how much awesome this party is. I scrolled and scrolled and scrolled and it just got more and more awesome. The Great Gavini is lucky to have a mom like you. This party is filled with love for that little man.

Donna said...

Love it! You did such a fabulous job. It looks like he had fun time. Love the bling sticks with the donut holes. I should do that next time...

Capture Our Lives said...

Explosion of awesomeness!!! Great attention to every detail! That sequined table cover is to-die-for. Is it fabric? I am doing a gold sequin fabric for a round tablecloth and with the dimensions struggling a bit. But, you really did put on a show and demonstrate love for a theme your kid loved. Genius!

Craft That Party said...

2. I've never been jealous of an 8yr old's party favor until now. I want/need a glitter rabbit favor jar asap
3.light up signs are a must at all parties now. beyond.
4. I would also like money made in my likeness.
5.this party is totally adorbs. honored to craft for your sweet G!

Looks magictacular! Clever and Creative! So many details! I'm sure Gavin will treasure the memories! Congrats!

Norene said...

My jaw has been on the floor and I have caught 2 flies. I have looked through the pictures 3 times. I will go back for more. It's like chocolate, and I can't get enough. When Gavin turns 9 I am going to buy a plane ticket. Yes, I am inviting myself. I'm a pug party addict. Your are the Amazing Pugini.

Mary said...
