Real Parties: Lucia’s 2nd birthday rose garden picnic

Sunshine, good vibes and plenty of room to play are essentials for a successful kids’ birthday picnic party. Luckily, Lucia had all three for her rose garden picnic in celebration of her 2nd! Plus, she even got to celebrate with her two birthday buddies—does it get more fun than a 3-in-1 bday? See how mama Jessie DeLowe (@jessiedelowe on IG) went all out for Lucia and friends, Jahji and Indy.
