Start your engines- this little car party is zooming with great ideas!  Using blue and green for a car themed party is a lovely change from the norm- I must admit, I was expecting red!  Styled by Belle of Australia designed this party for sweet Hudson’s first birthday party!  What a beautiful celebration!

Belle bought small tires and placed foam in the middle.  She painted them and used them as a display for marshmallow pops.  What a perfect way to tie in the theme!

I loved the Teddy Graham treats that Belle made for this party, and so I made some for “T Week” in my son’s class.  They are so easy and pretty cute!  I used snack size Milky Way bars, Teddy Grahams, M&M’s and a dab of icing to hold the wheels in place.  Thank you for the fun idea, Belle!

We called them Teddies in Trucks!  You could also make a train…enjoy!

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!”. 


Oh, my- what a tea party!  With so many unique and cute details, you will love seeing this darling party by The Sweetest Affair!  Mom Aaliyah planned this sweet affair for her own daughter London- and hosted a tea party with whimsical flair.  With a candy-covered tea pot, a funny spout of tea (made from Sixlets candy) shooting from teapot to tea cup, and a precious book on two-year old etiquette, this party was fit for a Birthday Queen!


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!
