Inside Sherri Saum’s Frog-Themed Birthday for Twins John and Michael

05/26/2015 at 07:25 PM ET

Hoppy birthday, John and Michael!

Actress Sherri Saum and her husband Kamar de los Reyes celebrated a major milestone in their twins’ lives — their first birthday! — with a frog-themed party at their Hollywood-area home on Saturday, May 16.

After receiving invites from EchoAge, guests — including The Fosters cast — showed up at the backyard bash, which Good Carma Studio and Laura Stewart Design had transformed into a party space inspired by the boys’ favorite cartoon, Atención Atención.

In between playing games and posing for pictures, guests noshed on a barbecue spread of salads, mac & cheese and chicken fingers. Trays filled with nutritional chocolate shakes from Usana were also passed around to the pint-sized crowd, while the adults sipped on La Croix‘s lemon, lime and passion fruit sparkling water.

Before heading home with treat bags filled with goodies from Mabel’s Labels, Little Green and Soothie Suckers, everyone indulged in Polkatots‘s dessert bar, made up of caramel apples, one-shaped cookies and a vanilla and chocolate frog cupcake cake.

The Fosters returns June 8 at 8 p.m. on ABC Family.

Gwyneth Paltrow celebrated her daughter’s 11th birthday on Thursday, posting a beautiful, never-before-seen photo of Apple as a baby.

“11 years ago this brilliant, kind, hilarious beauty graced our lives. Happy birthday, Apple Martin. I love you with all my heart,” the 42-year-old actress captioned the sweet snap.

With her piercing blue eyes and tuft of blonde hair, Paltrow’s baby girl bears a striking resemblance to her mom even at just a few weeks old. (Clearly, she didn’t fall far from the tree!)

The celebrations started early for Apple with a family trip to Disneyland in California on Sunday. Along with her mom, younger brother Moses, 9, and dad, Chris Martin, the birthday girl enjoyed a day of rides and exploring the theme park.

Samuel Affleck Turns 1

Look who’s growing up!

His father Ben Affleck (here with his little man in Beverly Hills on Jan. 25) may have won another Oscar (this time for Best Picture), but it’s Samuel‘s recent milestone — he turns 1 today! — that has his family abuzz.

Two days after his parents wrapped up a whirlwind awards season, the tyke headed out with mom Jennifer Garner and big sisters Violet, 7, and Seraphina, 4, to a Brentwood, Calif. toy store Tuesday.

Not sure what cool playthings the family picked up, but we’re positive Samuel’s birthday party will be a homey, low-key affair befitting the Garner-Affleck clan.

Happy birthday Josselyn Sydney!

On Sunday, Sept. 16, Samantha Harris broke out the balloons to celebrate her daughter’s fifth birthday with an extra-special backyard bash.

Combining two of the birthday girl’s latest faves into one eclectic celebration, the festivities included a sweet Rapunzel tiered cake with a vanilla and chocolate swirl base topped off with red velvet and cream cheese frosted layers.

“We did a mash-up of Disney princesses and Nickelodeon’s Fresh Beat Band,” Harris shares of the big day.

“We had a Tangled-themed cake and table settings with a bouncy house that had all the Disney princesses on it with music from the kids TV show The Fresh Beat Band cranked up in the background. Josselyn was in heaven.”
