An October birthday at a pumpkin patch is always fun…add in a Pumpkin Princess theme (as requested by the birthday girl), and you have yourself a party!  Sweet mom, Amy, loved adding girlie elements to make the girls feel like the princesses they are as they picked pumpkins and had a ball at a perfect fall party!  As soon as the guests arrived, they were “decorated” with pink necklaces and bracelets!

I love how the adorable pumpkin cupcakes were placed in princess cup cake wrappers!

The girls enjoyed lots of treats as they made their way through the pumpkin patch!

I especially love the pink Jones Sodas dressed up for Halloween!

The birthday girl and her guests choose their own pumpkins so that they can also decorate them~

They decorated their crowns, too!

The children put their initial on each pumpkin- straight pins worked perfectly for that!

There was a special visit from a scarecrow… he delivered birthday wishes and a special shirt for the birthday girl!

And a magician entertained them while they had lunch.  Don’t you love how they have on their crowns?


A visit to a pumpkin patch is never complete without a hay ride!

I love the cute favors Amy put together for the girls to enjoy and to remember their fun day with the Pumpkin Princess!

Insulated cups filled with treats and treasures~ fall candies, nail stickers, balloons, and lip balm.

And these adorable S’mores kits were a big hit!  Amy came across these on Pinterest and loved them!

I think this little one really enjoyed herself!  Adorable!

And my favorite picture of the Birthday Girl- I mean, Pumpkin Princess!

What a fun day!  Thank you for sharing you adorable party with us!  Happy Birthday!!!

Celebrating your birthday with a Mexican Fiesta is a sure way to have a great time!  My daughter and several of her friends had a ball with all of the bright colors and (hopefully) vivid memories of a beautiful party day full of fun!  Planning all of the party ideas and details was loads of fun- although we don’t claim to have everything authentically perfect- this is our take on a party that combines Mexican birthday party ideas with a young girl’s likes and wishes!  For instance, we know hedgehogs don’t hail from Mexico- but when she fell in love with a festive-looking hedgehog at a local shop, we decided the hedgehog would make a perfectly fun party favor!  So read on and enjoy- and hopefully you will find an idea or two that you can use for a Mexican-themed party or even a Cinco de Mayo celebration, too- and inspiration to incorporate ideas that make your party perfectly-suited for the birthday child! 


There is nothing like the bright colors and happy prints of Lilly Pulitzer to make every day feel like a party!  For my daughter’s 12th birthday party, she wanted to decorate cakes~ Lilly-style!  So, in order to decide how to mesh the two, I kept thinking “if Lilly had a cake shop instead of a juice stand”… I have to admit, this was one fun party to plan!  It is a blast to see where ideas go in the hands of a TWEEN!  Enjoy and remember, “…being happy never goes out of style!”. 

CAMILLE’S CLUBHOUSE ~ Confectionery, Soda Shoppe, Spa

My daughter had lots of ideas of what she wanted to do to celebrate her 10th birthday!  She wanted to have lots of cookies~ and have a soda shoppe ~ and set up a spa for nail painting!  With so many ideas, I knew we should come up with something that would tie it all together.  And, that is how Camille’s Clubhouse became the theme- the Clubhouse is where you can find lots of her favorite things!  We sent invitations with a an insert that had a “password” that had to be unscrambled and brought to the party for “entry”.  That was an easy way to get the guests involved before the party even started!


What began as a simple gesture to introduce my daughter to a wonderful book series has become a special evening ritual for us- reading Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House books!  I must admit, I didn’t realize quite how interesting these books would be to her, but she cannot wait to read all nine in the series.  It was only fitting that her birthday party focus around Little House on the Prairie!  Together, we had a ball planning all of the details of her party that related to the books in some way.  At Camille’s request, we focused on some of her favorite parts of the stories… prairie flowers, covered wagons, tee pees, the colors in the drawings of the books,  and “pretty”…because “Ma” liked things to be pretty!
