“Lights, camera, birthday! We recently rolled out the red carpet (literally), to welcome guests to the premiere of our two sons’ Hollywood movie themed birthday party! It was such a fun theme, perfect for any age or gender & easy to pull off with a mixed age crowd! We are excited to take you “behind the scenes” & hope you enjoy the magic of the day, captured by Karina Rigtrup of A Fresh Take Photography.”

About t h e c onfet t i F oundat i o n The idea for The Confetti Foundation was developed in 2010 when Stephanie Frazier Grimm’s best friend’s baby was born 8 weeks premature with many complications. Stephanie’s friend spent hours every day driving to the hospital neonatal intensive care unit with her toddler and husband to visit “Baby C” as he gradually grew stronger. During those long drives, Stephanie and her friend would talk about their families, the weather, their jobs, the good times they had in college, and anything else that served as a distraction. One conversation led to baby C’s hospital “buddy” who was going home and finally getting to have a birthday celebration.

Stephanie wondered what happened when children are in the hospital on their birthdays. Do they have a party? She discovered the answer was almost always “no.” Parents with sick children are only thinking about their children getting healthy, not leaving their sides to gather supplies and put together a birthday party. Typically, birthday celebrations take place when a child comes home. Stephanie also remembered having to spend her own 13th birthday in the hospital and wanted to make a change. In January 2014, The Confetti Foundation started supplying birthday party kits to children who spend their birthdays in the hospital. Through the party kits, children of all ages are celebrated and honored on their special day.

“Downstairs, we made tin men and rainbow bead necklaces. (I saved a lot of soup cans!) The girls wrote what they would ask the Wizard for in picture frames that I decorated with gingham paper and felt poppies from Little Boo Creations.” “Our guests drank Wicked Witch Punch and ate Yellow Brick Road Bars (lemon bars), Ruby Red Cake Pops, and Technicolor Treats (frosted brownies). USPS let us down and didn’t deliver our very pretty sugar cookie Witch Hats and Glinda Crowns from Sweet Dough. But, our wonderful cake pop lady, Cake Pops by Jen, surprised us with candied pretzels! We filled in with those and chocolate chip cookies.”
