There is nothing better than watching children enjoy the best parts of nature as they do at this wonderful party!  The big tree serves as a backdrop and a playscape!  The treats take their yumminess from nature, too- apples!  The theme is perfect for a beautiful fall day!  Enjoy the last bit of fall with this adorable Apple Party from Katie at Petite Social

Katie was asked to design a “fuss-free” party with no dessert table.  I love how it all turned out!

The table was set using pops of red along with burlap, kraft paper, and twine.  Lunch was served in brown boxes and included sandwiches and chips…

Drinks were served in sweet, old-fashioned milk bottles with a striped straw, and fruit was served in Mason Jars.  I love the casual vibe!

As an added treat, there were caramel apples to enjoy!  The display is perfect!

They also enjoyed celebrating with an apple birthday cake~

There is nothing better than seeing the guests in action!  I love this shot!

Each child took home these gorgeous cookies as a party favor!  Notice the birthday girl’s name so uniquely decorated into the shape of an apple!  Beautiful~

What a perfect outdoor party!  Thank you for sharing your ideas with us, Katie!

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!”. 




Any chance I get, I love to share what my friends at Anders Ruff Designs are doing!  Maureen and Adria are ALWAYS up to something creative!  And so, I bring you another fabulous party design and graphic design by Anders-Ruff!  They were kind enough to share their thoughts on what makes a wonderful Thanksgiving table.  Their eye for using natural elements and incorporating their fantastic paper designs makes the celebration warm and cozy!


Birthday Party Ideas for a Teen- How to Celebrate a TEEN

Wow! My daughter turned into a teen!  Sometimes it can be tricky to decide what to do to celebrate this milestone.  I wanted to share with you some ideas that may help if you want to mark the occasion but also keep it low-key.  At first, my daughter wanted to have a very large sleepover to celebrate.  I loved it that she wanted to include everyone she knew, but laughed at the thought of trying to corral close to 30 tweens and teens! So, I told her she could have a little, bitty, teeny sleepover and her “real” party could be bubble soccer (which she had been begging to do at this huge sleepover she was planning ).  So, realizing the play on words with a “teeny” party, we went with the TEENY theme and used as many miniature things as we could.  It was such a fun theme and the ideas could go on forever…but this is what we decided on for her teeny, little sleepover.
