Well Pop Up Studios traveled back to The Girl Cave in Huntington Beach for a 40th surprise birthday for Brian.

I was so excited to be the first one to introduce them in such a fun way. We painted "Hakuna Matata" Step by step, and pretty successfully I might add!

Not only were the paintings amazing but it was a great time, with kabobs and desserts! This was a wonderful party, hopefully next time they won't wait 5 years to paint again!

Also a huge shout out to The Girl Cave for being wonderfully flexible, and lovely to work with!
