Party supplies that empower children of color to love themselves.

The only place for party supplies created by a woman of color for children of color.

Upset and frustrated by the lack of party supplies for kids of color?

Have you spent hours on Etsy looking for party supplies that represent YOUR family, only to find white characters on party items?

Are you settling for party supplies that your children cannot identify with, because party products created in YOUR children's image simply do not exist?

Do you feel like you're letting your daughter down because it's her birthday party, but she can't look at the character on the paper plates and say "she looks like me!"

As a mom, and a woman of color, it has been challenging for me to find party supplies for my beautiful brown babies. Once I became an event planner, I realized that other women of color also struggle with the lack of options for their children.

So, I decided to create my own!

Don't think that it's a big deal that party supplies don't look like your children?

That is a misconception. As advocates for our children, we take full responsibility for ensuring that they are treated fairly in social settings.

So how is this any different? Our children deserve the same level of love, affection and acknowledgement as every other group of children on this planet.

However, when mothers and children of color go to party stores, almost all of the characters have fair skin and features that do not resemble them. It is impossible to find a brown-skin mermaid, pirate or superhero. 

Representation matters, even in party supplies!

This is very frustrating for families of color, because it negatively impacts the children's self esteem. They feel left out, isolated and unworthy, which leads to them feeling negatively about themselves and their heritage.

We need more examples of love and positivity for our children. That’s why it is so important to constantly give them positive images that they can relate to.

It's time to show them that they matter and have the right to see themselves in the same light as others see themselves.

I was unable to find party supplies for kids of color, so I decided to create my own…

When I began designing our Mermaid Collection, it was very important to me that her skin be chocolate brown. I also wanted her to have full lips, beautiful brown eyes and big hair. Her costume was created in shades of purple because it symbolizes prosperity and royalty in Africa. I want my daughter, and every brown little girl on this planet to feel beautiful, acknowledged and loved each time they look at our party products and see themselves smiling back.
