FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) — A four-year-old girl from Fayetteville loves one particular pharmacy so much, she asked her mom to throw her a CVS-themed birthday party and now her unique request has landed her on Buzzfeed and all over the internet.

Sarah Fortune wrote a blog post Friday (Oct. 16) about Iris’ birthday and included photos showing all the creative ways she incorporated CVS into the birthday bash. Fortune also explained how Iris’ love for the pharmacy began:

“It all started nearly two years ago when construction began on our city’s very first CVS Pharmacy. The site happens to be directly on our path to Iris’ school, so we drive past the location at least twice a day. Being that she was only three when it opened, she watched the progress of the structure being built for nearly half of her life, so naturally it was a big deal when the store finally opened. When Iris first got to step inside the brand new CVS, she was not disappointed. She discovered all the snacks, drinks, toys, chap-stick, and band-aids that her little heart could ever desire.”

In her blog, Fortune writes CVS headquarters sent snacks, favors and party supplies when they heard about her daughter’s party and the local store manager donated some CVS-brand water bottles and flashed a “Happy Birthday” message to Iris on the sign out front.
