Happy second birthday Rain India Lexton!

As promised in her final blog, Marisol Nichols has sent along photos from her daughter’s birthday party, held last weekend in Los Angeles.

Celebrating in fairy-princess style with her parents, The Gates star Nichols and Taron Lexton, as well as Fisher-Price, the party was planned by Marisol’s dear friend, designer Melinda Brownstone.

Set in the family’s backyard, the kids munched on organic baby veggies with homemade green-goddess dip and devoured fresh fruit skewers while their parents enjoyed an array of fresh crêpes.

Before diving into the fairy-princess cake, family and friends serenaded Rain in a rousing rendition of  “Happy Birthday”.

When it came time to open presents, Fisher-Price surprised Rain with her very own pink Barbie Cadillac Escalade.

One of the many highlights of the day was the balloon man who fashioned custom balloons of all shapes and sizes – everything from Elmo to Tinkerbell – for each of the little partygoers.

The best part for Marisol? A keepsake for Rain to remember all the fun she had with her friends: a framed canvas with tracings of each attendees’ handprints, along with their names and photos.

The cake is super cute. How sweet of Fisher-Price to give her a car…..

Fisher-Price helped her celebrate and gave her a car? What does this mean? I see the birthday sign with the Fisher-Price logo, but what did the company have to do with the little girl’s party? Did they pay for it? Were they just hoping to get publicity? Why would a celebrity’s child need a toy company to sponsor their birthday party? I don’t get it.

It’s a win win for for everybody to have a company sponsor a special event or child’s party. Obviously, the company gets to have their name promoted which is of course good for them and the celebrity can possibly get a bunch of special, big gifts to give guests or the kids and parents which would be very expensive otherwise. You see stuff like this all the time in, “In Style” magazine. As I said, a win win.

i think it seemed like a great party!! it did not seem super over the top like other celebrity parties, i mean the little set up for the canvas painting was adorable and “norm”. i think that this seem like an approprite party for a two year old girl!

So the child is basically being whored out to Fisher Price for a photo opportunity. I would expect no less of a C-list celebrity & shudder to imagine how people like Rob & Amber from Survivor will jump on this gravy train.

mommyof2- I agree! This looks like it was a very low-key party, despite Fischer-Price’s involvement.🙂

Also, to be fair, it says the party was planned by a friend of Marisol’s. So if we’re going to complain about the sponsorship, we should be aiming our complaints at Marisol’s friend, not her!

Anjiro, If that is what you consider a win win, I am appalled. A celebrity’s child does not need a toy company to buy them and their guests gifts. I have to agree with Traxie. This is akin to whoring your child out in order to get them more toys. Grossly inappropriate.

I don’t get why celeb parents can’t throw a party themselves. If anything, it makes me not want to buy their product. (recalled, or not ;)) Save the sponsoring for the athletes.

Rain India is a little cutie looks exactly like her father. I heard that her mom only has 1/4th Mexican heritage so her daughter has much less, like 1/8th or something that hardly even counts.

Karen on

I agree LOL!

Sky on

Actually, if you read her blog (linked above) she says that she asked her friend, designer Melinda Brownstone, to help her plan the party. They planned the party together. You can’t pass the buck on this one.

Sky, If you don’t like it, don’t come on a celebrity baby blog

Rosy on

I love her cake, how cute is that!!

Sky on

If you don’t like the comments, don’t read them.

Molly on

Now I get it Sky. You are unable to handle the fact that I’m pointing out that you are acting childish. Don’t like it Sky, then GROW UP

Sky on

And just what do you find childish, miss molly, about someone pointing out that in their opinion having a toy company sponsor a celebrity’s child’s party is inappropriate? Does this cut too close to home for you? There are plenty of things on this site that I do like, and I comment on those as well. Just because you don’t like someone’s opinion does not mean they are less welcome here than you are. How childish is that??

Kelly on

I am wondering the same thing. Why is Fisher Price sponsoring her birthday party? I smell a publicity stunt for both the parents and Fisher Price. When we’ve actually heard of this child and her parents, tell me about the sponsorship. But until then, I’m getting a good laugh.

CelebBabyLover on

Molly- Take some deep breaths, girl! Sky didn’t say anything bad or inapproprite. I don’t agree with her comments myself, but I don’t think she was trying to be nasty or anything. She wasn’t, IMO, acting childish. She was just stating her opinion.🙂
