Walter Reid Kasper celebrated his third birthday Sunday, May 23, with a party at his home. He turned 3-years-old on May 10. He is the son of Robby and Trudie Kasper of Swainsboro.
“Scooby-Doo” was the theme of the celebration, complete with matching decorations. The food table was covered with a black tablecloth accented with white puppy dog paw prints. The Mystery Machine van, along with a Shaggy and Scooby figurine, were the centerpiece for the table. Turquoise and orange tablecloths covered the guest tables. Each table had a balloon bouquet centerpiece of assorted yellow, lime green, orange, and turquoise balloons, each accented with a different character from Mystery Incorporated. The party area also featured a large “Happy Birthday” banner, which also matched the theme, and more balloon bouquets. Guests used “Scooby-Doo” plates and napkins, along with lime green utensils to enjoy the spread. They were served pizza, Cheetos and chips, “Scooby” snacks, a variety of fruit, and cupcakes topped with picks that held photo cutouts of all Mystery Incorporated characters. An assortment of refreshments were served. All the young guests received “Scooby” cups and straws to drink from and take home.
The birthday boy blew out his candles as the guests sang “Happy Birthday.” Everyone enjoyed a delicious confection of yellow cake covered with buttercream icing decorated to resemble Scooby-Doo and his collar. Atop the adorable cake was the Mystery Machine, along with Scooby and all the gang.
Walt and his young guests enjoyed the afternoon playing, riding toys, and splashing around in the kiddie pool in the backyard.
Special guests helping the honoree and his parents celebrate were his “big” sister, Katie Dawn, and “little” brother, Elynn; grandparents, Lynn and Dianne Edenfield and Ginny Kasper; aunt and cousins, Lindsey Radford and Brailey and Colbie Radford; and uncle, aunt, and cousin, Lance, Brianna, and Lora Layne Edenfield. Several other family and friends also joined in the festivities to help make Walt’s day one to remember!
