Happy birthday Stella Doreen McDermott!

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott‘s youngest child celebrated turning three with a Hello Kitty-themed party for 50 guests, including Ali Landry and daughter Estela, in their Los Angeles-area backyard on Saturday.

“Stella is obsessed with Hello Kitty. Literally the week after her second birthday party she said, ‘Mommy I want Hello Kitty for my next party,'” Spelling tells PEOPLE with a laugh.

“And she never forgot! She’s been asking for it ever since.”

Featuring a 3 foot tall Hello Kitty from Hansen’s Cakes, flowers by Heavenly Blooms, a pink candy bar from Candy Warehouse and a dessert table from Jenny Cookies, guests of the party also noshed on pulled pork sliders, mac & cheese bites, corn and hot dogs and mixed veggies.

They then moved on to play at face painting and hair-styling stations, a make-your-own necklace table, Hello Kitty bounce house and photo booth.

A touching moment came when Candy Spelling gave her granddaughter Tori’s childhood dollhouse, a present the actress had received for her own third birthday. Upon seeing the gift, Tori cried — but Stella lightened the mood by asking if her pet chicken, Coco, could live in it!

Before they left, guests received gift bags filled with goodies from Sanrio, Mabel’s Labels and Name Your Tune.
