To celebrate her sweet baby girl’s first birthday, Mom Kerri says  “…I took a risk and created it all myself.”.  I would say there was nothing risky about that when you are as creative as Kerri!  I love sharing her labor of love!  With a cupcake theme, this party was all sweetness!

Kerri made everything with the exception of the tiny cupcakes.  That is quite a sweet shop!

She did each cupcake topper with Happy Birthday, Mia and the number 1…

And look at the adorable jars of treats- I love the cupcake cutouts on top and how they are tied with a pink spoon!  So pretty and sweet!


I also love how each name is on the favor!  A perfect way to make your guests feel special~

Another special touch- a first birthday cake made by your mommy!

Happy Birthday, Sweet Girl!

Kerri channels her creative talents through her shop called Tymia Designs.  She designs and makes children’s clothing and accessories.  Stop by and take a look…

Thank you, Kerri!  I think you are a fabulous risk-taker- the party turned out beautifully!

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!”. 


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!
