Professional party decorator Macy Lima knows how to make a kid's craziest dreams come true when it comes to a birthday party. Her company, Macy Lima Decorations, is a Houston-based event coordinating business that specializes in children's parties. In an interview with Voyage Houston, Macy said, "As a new mom, I had spent countless hours, days, months planning special events for my kids and discovered a passion in creating unique party decorations that also provides a wonderful experience for all of the guests." That is what pushed her into developing her own business and now she plans and styles all different kinds of parties. 

Macy has done a wide range of themes, including everything from Sesame Street for her own kid to a botanical fairy garden party that looked like it dropped down from Neverland. Her levels of imagination and creativity are truly impressive. "It starts off with a theme, or idea and later I start creating and executing a unique and personalized decor service for the guest of honor," she explained to Voyage Houston. "I love to create new concepts that have never been seen before and bring my clients ideas into a large scale visual and emotional experience." We asked Macy about some of the most extravagant kids' parties that she has designed. She explained a little bit of the background for six different parties -- and they are all equality incredible. Here are six kids birthday party themes that Macy pulled off in the most extra and fantastical way possible. 

  • 'Moana' Birthday Party

    This was a Moana themed party for 1-year-old twins. "We wanted to focus on baby Moana's first interaction with the ocean for this first birthday for twins Anna & Emma," Macy tells CafeMom. 

  • 'Moana' Treats

    The dessert table was epic! It had coconuts with faces, Hawaiian flowers, and so much vibrant color. 

  • 'Moana' Table Decor

    How cute are these seashells and chocolate turtles? This was a creative idea that would work for any ocean-themed party.

  • 'Moana' Party Favors

    And these little boxes for the kids are incredible! Many of Macy's parties have super creative and on-theme party favors. 

  • First Fiesta Birthday Party

    "Naomi's first fiesta was a mixture of two themes," Macy says of this little girl's party. "Mexican fiesta and cactus party. Naomi was turning 1, so I decided to style it with a softer color palette." 

  • First Fiesta Cactus Cake

    For the cake, they decorated it with perfectly painted cacti and pink flowers on top. And the pink cake plate with the pom-pom trim works so well.

    According to Macy, this Sesame Street party was her "all-time favorite theme" that she gets asked about all the time. "I loved creating the backdrop, like the Brady Bunch iconic squares, for each Sesame Street character."
