In celebration of her daughter Hillary‘s second birthday, Samantha Harris threw a fun party at their LA-based home. With the help of big sis Josselyn, 5, the hands-on mama organized some of Hillary’s favorite activities — including face painting, gifts from zulily, crafts and a dance party.
“Hillary’s favorite part of the party was, hands down, the song and dance portion,” Samantha tells Celebrity Baby Scoop of the afternoon shindig, shared with some of her closest friends aged 2 to 5.
“Even after all the other kids, including the 5-year-olds, lost interest, Hilly was still going strong,” Samantha adds. “When it was finally time to shut off the music and say goodbye to our guests, she protested saying, ‘Nooooo! More dancing, more.’ “
While the kids waited their turn at the face painting station, they had a balloon-filled area where they ran and played.
After that, guests noshed on a Bubble Guppies-themed cake – made courtesy of Samantha’s friend – topped off with some ice cream.
And for the craft station, Samantha bought a 15-foot roll of white paper and unrolled it over pink plastic table covers for the “artists at work.” The children enjoyed the outdoor project using paints, markers, dot paints and crayons.
For the gift bags, Samantha included her “favorite party favors, personalized Mabel’s Labels,” a mini manicure kit with nail file and toe-separators, over-sized pen easy to grasp, and a Lollipop-shaped notepad.
Sounds like a fun party! Happy Birthday to Hillary!
