frida kahlo birthday party (!!!!!)











Uh...MAZ-ING. 

I'm left speechless by these party pictures...there's not much I can say in words that these pictures can't express! Every single detail is brilliant. While I'm usually not a fan of 'photo birthday cakes', I think it works soooo perfectly in this instance, with the birthday girl (Sofia) dressed as iconic Frida in a portrait-style photo.

If you are as obsessed with this party as I am, you must check out each and every picture right here (there are many more!). MikoDesign has really outdone herself. 

(And a big thank you to Yolanda for making sure I didn't miss this amazing party! Now I'm just left wondering...how do I raise a daughter who at age 8 requests a Frida Kahlo party!?)

!!!! That's exactly what I though when I flipped through those photos. Absolutely stunning. And for an 8-year old! I could totally see this idea transported to a fun adult birthday party or shower. So glad you liked it.

This is pretty unique for a little girl birthday party. Very innovative.

Thank you for reposting a link to this party... I can see why you're so in awe of it - what a brilliant idea and I was thinking exactly the same thing about the cake: spooky. What a wonderful opp to have fun with colour!

this was the rarest item I've seen on the network since I'm looking for, Frida Kahlo as a theme for children not think it is the inspiration that I want for my children, just as congratulate them on the original. But I will always have to buy viagra.
