Most five-year-old’s would be happy enough with a small party surrounded by friends and family for their birthday.
But when it came to planning a party for their daughter’s big day, Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott pulled out all the stops to ensure that Stella had everything she could ever want.
From Tinkerbell to face-painting, and everything in between, Stella looked overwhelmed by the amount of activities on offer at the fun-filled event.
But perhaps the most impressive addition to the party was the truly incredible five-tier multi-coloured cake, complete with fresh flowers in between each layer, butterfly embellishments and a Tinkerbell figurine sitting on the top.
Explaining the cake on her blog, Tori wrote: ‘It’s also a tradition in our family to get a cake from Hansen’s Cakes—the cake makers in Hollywood.
‘I had a Hansen’s cake at every one of my birthday parties as a little girl, and I’m of course continuing the tradition with my four babes.’
Tucking in: Stella and her 23-month-old sister Hattie looked to be enjoyed themselves as they tried the cake
Looking in awe at the towering bake, Stella just about managed to reach the bottom layer of the cake to blow out her candles.
After finally succeeding in her aim, Stella and her brothers and sisters were first in line to try out the sweet treat.
Little Hattie, in particular, looked particularly keen on the cake as she tucked into a slice from the yellow layer.
The 23-month-old, wearing an adorable frilled blue dress, beamed with delight as she posed in front of the cake table before she got stuck into the cake.
All the family dressed in brightly-coloured ensembles for the occasion, with birthday girl Stella taking centre stage in a pink vest top and green sequinned skirt.
And Stella certainly fitted in with her fairy themed garden party, looking delighted as she posed with a Tinkerbell lookalike before she got her own set of wings to wear for the rest of her special day.
Stella was then seen having her face painted with pretty pink flowers, before she had a turn decorating her own plant pot alongside her friends.
Perhaps one of the most enjoyable activities for the children at the party was having a go at whacking the flower-shaped piñata.
However, after Stella and her six-year-old brother Liam’s energetic attempts at getting the candy out of the piñata still didn’t break it, their father Dean was forced to step in.
Grinning, Dean upended the container, much to the delight of the children, who scrambled to pick up sweets to put in their party bags.
As well as sweets aplenty and the giant five-tiered cake, guests at the party had an array of incredible desserts to choose from.
Tori enlisted the help of her friends to create a truly remarkable dessert table, complete with cake pops and intricately decorated cupcakes with edible sugar flowers on the top.
Naturally happy: Hattie appeared to be thoroughly enjoying herself as she cuddled up to her father
Birthday girl Stella also hand in coming up with one of the dessert options, and was pictured tucking into one of the delicious pots at the party.
Tori explained: ‘Stella, already a self-proclaimed Craftista and baker, came up with the recipe herself. Her vision was a fruit loop parfait in mason jars complete with yogurt and pink whipped cream. She made them all (with my help) the morning of her party, saying, “Mom, my friends are gonna love these special ‘Stella’s Treats’.” And they did!’
Drinks came in the form of rainbow coloured lemonade, in flavours such as pomegranate rose, ginger rosemary and lavender plum.
Tori and Dean also appeared to be thoroughly enjoying themselves at their daughter’s celebration, beaming as they posed with their four children – Stella, Liam, Hattie and one-year-old Finn.
The 40-year-old actress looked stunning in a patterned minidress, teaming her look with a braided updo and slick of red lipstick.
Dean, 46, also looked smart for the occasion, wearing a white shirt rolled up to show off his tattoos, and jeans.
