Can you believe it? It seems like only yesterday we were all watching Donna Martin tool around Beverly Hills 90210. Now her real-life daughter is old enough to romp around a Beverly Hills preschool! That’s right, actress Tori Spelling’s daughter Stella turned 5 years old last Sunday. Both she and dad Dean McDermott (who are also the parents of Liam, 6; Hattie, 20 months; and Finn, 9 months) put the petal to the metal for the occasion, and threw their little princess a party with a flower theme.

The couple took to Twitter to share a picture of Stella on her special day—she was decked out in a hot pink shirt and twinkly green skirt. Holding a pink balloon, she showed off the swag that pals had given her in celebration.

While the event may have been posh, it wasn’t hush-hush: Even before it happened, Dean and Tori shared their plans with US magazine. “We’re doing a flower-themed party with Crocs, and it’s going to be pretty cool,” Tori revealed. “Stella and I have been diligently planning away and crafting. It’s going to be very DIY, of course, because she’s my little DIY goddess. She calls herself little craft-ista and she loves gardening, so that’s where the theme came from. We’re going to be planting and teaching the kids how to plant their own vegetables, flowers, berries and things.”

And though Stella probably isn’t old enough to read it yet, mom posted a special blog entry in her honor on June 6. “The moment Stella Doreen McDermott arrived it was love at first sight,” she said. “I have always dreamed of being a mommy to a little girl who would share my loves of crafting, fashion and food. Stella is truly a girl after my own heart. Her first words in this order were mama, shoes and cheese.”
