Ellis' Yayoi Kusama 2nd Birthday Party

If you follow along on instagram, you may have seen (who knows with that algorithm 😱) when we visited The Broad, to see the Yayoi Kusama exhibit. E is a bit sticker crazy and loved every part of it, but especially the sticker room. We spent about 45 minutes in the obliteration room alone. This past weekend we threw her a Yayoi Kusama themed birthday party. 
The first part was getting the stickers. We thought 12,000 would do the trick.
Tony and my father in law built what was to be the obliteration room and next to it, a toddler sized infinity room. 
We used this old car port that's in our backyard. To the right of the infinity room are giant hanging balloons that the kids could run through and hit.
The artist at work. Tony blew up all the balloons, tied a string to them then added the giant black sticker dots. 
Aunt Michelle and Ellis were the first ones in the obliteration room.  
Her friend Sam enjoyed deciding on what stickers to use.

 Happy birthday to you!
