Christina Hall went all out to celebrate her only daughter on her 13th birthday.

After sharing a sweet tribute to Taylor on Friday, the Christina on the Coast star, 40, shared photos on Instagram of the decorations for the teen's birthday.

Decor around the backyard of the family's home ranged different shades of pink, with flowers, a balloon arch, and a photo scene set up to match the theme.

"Because you only turn 13 once," the mom of three captioned one of the shots, which shows a pool full of fun flamingo and swan floats in addition to more pink decor.

The party included a very special nod to the teen — a cart featuring her favorite desert, Dole Whip, typically served at Disneyland.

The proud mom noted the special surprise was the "star of the show," in one of her Instagram photos from the event.

Hall shares her daughter and her son Brayden, 7, with ex Tarek El Moussa, 42. She is also mom to son Hudson, 4, whom she shares with ex Ant Anstead, 44.

The HGTV star shared a sweet tribute posted to her Instagram for Taylor on her birthday, sharing a slideshow of photos of her daughter throughout the years. In the caption of the video, Hall penned a lengthy message.

"We have a teenager 😱!! Happy 13 birthday Taylor! Sweet girl- you impress me every day, I absolutely adore you," Hall wrote.

"Thank you for making me a mommy and my only wish is time would slow down so I could enjoy you as a kid as long as possible. Singing in the car, late night talks, bike rides to the mall, dole whip, hanging with our chickens, soccer Saturdays."

"Being your mom is the biggest blessing. My beautiful, feisty, funny, smart, creative, old soul. I love you beyond words," she concluded.

Earlier this year in a post discussing Mother's Day, the HGTV star reflected on a year of change in her life.

"Crazy how much life can change in a year. Last Mother's Day I was in a very bad place. Going through an extremely unnecessary custody battle, family issues, dealing with a health scare- amongst other things," she shared.

She went on to recall a moment when the rental property owners of the place where she was staying while the family was "momentarily displaced" showed her an act of kindness.

"It felt so good to speak to someone who understood. When I think of this now it still makes my eyes water. What a gift from God that moment was. No one I knew could understand what I was going through so to meet someone who got it and who could talk me through it truly was life-changing," she shared. "Shortly after that things turned around and fell into place."

"I know I've made mistakes but I know what I've done right… I know with all my heart my kids love me… and I know I'm a good mom…. life is crazy but being a mama makes it all worth it. Alllll of it. Happy Mother's Day, no matter where you are in life or what's happening stay positive- It can all change in a year! ❤️."
