4-Year-Old's CVS Pharmacy-Themed Birthday Party

Dinosaurs, princesses, race cars and personal injury lawyers, step aside. There’s a new kid’s birthday party theme in town, and it’s a game changer.

Pharmacies provide us with convenience, health care products, prescriptions, makeup, toiletries – hell, even snacks and candy. It’s like a wonderland of products! So it’s no wonder why 4-year-old Iris of Fayetteville, Arkansas has fallen head over heels in love with all of the magic that is CVS Pharmacy. So much so, that her mom, Sarah Fortune Gill, threw Iris a 4th birthday party complete with a red-and-white, convenience store theme.

Mom pulled out all the stops, with little goodie bags of treats and toiletries like lip balm and Band-Aids and a cash register for checkout and a cart for shopping. Adults who attended the party got little orange prescription bottles of “treatMINTS” to take “as needed,” and some Cranberry Vodka Splash.

Here’s Iris, decked out in red and white, with her birthday cake, adorned with a message stylized to look like the CVS logo:

According to Sarah’s blog, the love affair started two years ago, when their city got its first CVS. “There are tears when we drive by and don’t stop, and there are cheers when we do. This girl’s love for CVS is pure and true – so loyal that I recently asked Iris where she’d rather go – CVS or Disneyworld. Her response? ‘CVS and Disneyworld.’ Don’t you dare make a girl choose,” mom writes. Iris’s adoration for the drugstore chain is evident through mom’s blog and social media pages. On Instagram, you’ll find a short clip of Iris dancing her way through the aisles of a CVS. Peep this recent photo of a special birthday basket her local CVS gifted to her (a basket mom says Iris will get to keep!). How stinkin’ cute!
