This Little Girl Had A Selena-Themed Birthday Party Complete With Costume Changes And Roses

Selena Quintanilla is and will always be La Reina in our hearts. We literally can’t think of a time when she wasn’t a major part of our lives. From our childhoods to our college days and right into adulthood, Selena has been a moment of pride in the Latino community. So, it just makes sense that we would throw Selena-themed birthday parties for our kids. That’s exactly what Lily Martinez, aka @lilylove213, did for her daughter, @selibeliloves.

Martinez told mitú that her daughter’s favorite song is “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” by the timeless Selena. Martinez was able to take that fact and turned it into an entire party. Honestly, why couldn’t our parents think of the same kind of party for us? Who wouldn’t love a Selena-themed party?

First of all, the backdrop for the cakes was everything.

Who doesn’t want to be surrounded by metallic fringe in their special day? It just really adds that pizzazz factor that every party needs in order to really make it top notch. Bravo.

Obviously, Selena’s favorite flowers made their appearance in the cake.

Roses are always a good idea, tbh. But to put them in a cake to celebrate the one and only Selena is something magical. Clearly, La Reina would have been muy excited to see this cake.

Martinez says she and her daughter sat down and created the “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” sign together. They got some letters from the craft store, painted them then added glitter and created an iconic cake topper.

What’s for lunch? Pizzas, of course.

You can’t throw a Selena party and not use her favorite food. Not having pizzas would be a crime against La Reina and her devoted fans. Gotta represent in the most authentic way.

Oh. @selibelilove definitely had some outfit changes because, duh.

Little girl slayed all of her looks. Now, we all remember how embarrassing and frustrating it was when mom took thousands of photos of us at out birthday parties. However, who doesn’t want their own Selena photoshoot?

That’s how to nail a look. It isn’t all about the clothes. It is clear that this little fashionista is ready to serve looks no matter where she is.

And, of course, no Selena party is complete without a purple jumpsuit.

Sure. It isn’t part of the “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” music video but the look is the look. Everyone knows that this is the most iconic look to ever be associated with Selena.

Mommy was even dressed up for the party in her own Selena t-shirt.

Talk about an adorable mom and daughter duo. Mom supporting her daughter’s love of all things Selena. Daughter letting moment take thousands of photos. Truly incredible.

Happy birthday, you little Selenita, you.

Keep on slaying and keep on serving those looks. Selena would be proud.
