Harper's Wish – Granted on 18 Jun 2017
“I wish to have a Mickey & Minnie birthday party!”
We first met Harper in early May, and her love for Mickey & Minnie was evident from the start. Elina & I started planning a full-blown Mickey & Minnie themed party on 18 June, which was near her birthday. Ritz Carlton not only sponsored the venue for the party, but a staycation for the entire family. The fun started in the early afternoon of 18 Jun, when the family checked into the room, and was surprised with a ‘cake’ made up of tow- els, and covered in Mickey & Minnie decorations, for Harper. The family was also blown over by the view of the city.
The party finally started for Harper in the mid-afternoon, and they were greeted with a huge balloon arc of Mickey & Minnie theme, and a bouncy castle. Harper’s family and friends were entertained by the fringe activities, such as face painting, balloon sculpturing, candy claw machine, sand art booth, and professional photo booth. Everyone were amazed by the details that the Ritz Carlton put into their yummy Mickey & Minnie themed food & desserts. Halfway through the party, the magician engaged the children while the adults continued their conversations.
The highlight of the party was definitely when Mickey & Minnie themselves turned up to attend Harper’s party! All the children were drawn to them, including Harper. Mickey & Minnie celebrated Harper’s birthday by singing her a birthday song, and cutting her Mickey & Minnie themed cake together with her. Harper was surrounded by her family, loved ones, and friends on her wish day. We bought many Mickey & Minnie themed toys for Harper’s birthday, and also followed up with a subsequent home visit to view the canvas and photo album we got for the family, for memory keepsakes.
