The Perfect Mermaid Themed Birthday Party

When the beautiful inside and out Denise Vasi told me she was planning her daughter Lennox Mae’s 4th birthday party, I was so excited! Always one to throw a beautiful party with each and every detail on-theme, Denise, much like myself, loves delving into the details and I couldn’t wait to hear what she and her daughter were wanting. She is an amazing mom, and had asked Lennox Mae which cake designs she loved, and we took those ideas and brought them to life for this all-girls mermaid party in Los Angeles. Read her post here for some serious inspo on how to throw the ultimate mermaid party — it was amazing!

For the party, we made the mermaid cake and mini donuts. The cake was Vanilla Lemon with Raspberry Jam and the donuts were chocolate and plain with pink vanilla glaze and sprinkles. All of these sweets were, of course, vegan and gluten-free, and they tied in perfectly with the mermaid theme!

“Anyone who has baked anything knows that gluten-free, let alone vegan baking is an entirely different skill set. The fact that it has to be on theme, beautifully made and taste good is a whole other challenge.

Enter Yvonne’s Vegan Kitchen. There isn’t much to say except that the cake was DELISH and from the photos, you can see that it was magically beautiful. We opted to go for a cake that was larger than what we needed because Lennox Mae really wanted her cake to have mermaid scales.”

Denise started a blog recently called Maed.com – it’s incredibly well-done and she’s got a following that’s now into celery juice since she started her maed celery juice challenge. Denise and her husband also just opened a new restaurant called My Little Dumpling. I’m so thrilled that they have vegan and gluten-free options!

Follow Denise on Instagram and her content on Maed.co: a nod to what makes a woman feel like she’s truly “made” it. It isn’t living a perfect life or being a perfect woman. It’s being healthy and staying true to your values. In short: It’s being the best version of yourself that you can be.
