Emily Maynard's daughter, Ricki, is one lucky girl. Her mom threw her a fabulous party for her 7th birthday -- and Life & Style has the first look at the pictures, taken by Becca Bond Photography!
Party stylists Adria Ruff and Maureen Anders from the Anders Ruff Team helped Emily create a "glam camping"-themed party at her home in Charlotte, N.C., on June 29.
"Emily was absolutely a pleasure to work with and was so helpful to us during the setup," Anders tells Life & Style.
"She was extremely grateful for all of the work that we put into the party," Anders adds. "We had five days to design, plan and style the entire party. She continually said that she couldn't wait to see Ricki's expression. When Ricki arrived to see the party, Emily was anxious to show Ricki all the little details of the setup."
At the party, Ricki and her pals munched on snacks from Cupcrazed, which included s'mores cupcakes and French macarons. Got What It Cakes created the delicious cake, which was decorated to fit in with the glamorous camping theme all supplied by Polka Dot Market.
And when the girls weren't eating, Emily -- who's set to choose between finalists Jef Holm and Arie Luyendyk Jr. on the finale of The Bachelorette, which airs this Sunday -- set up butterfly catchers, a tent for the girls to play in and wooden birdhouses for them to paint.
"We could tell right away that Emily and Ricki have an extraordinary bond and that Ricki is her top priority," Anders tells Life & Style. "Emily was a gracious and perfect Southern hostess to the children. She's a terrific mother."
Ricki's guests did not leave empty-handed. Each girl received a custom-made canteen from Clarabelle and the Hen, a gorgeous tote bag from Sook Ee Designs, a headband from Evelyn's Whim and a loungewear set from Lila & G.
Sounds like quite the party!
