Roll up your sleeves and join the fun of the holidays with a Cookie Party from Anders Ruff!  With so many ideas to help your Christmas be merry, this party is one you can easily host~cookies with friends, pajama party with hot cocoa and cookies, the list goes on…so enjoy baking and sharing with Anders Ruff!  I must warn you- you will wish you had a bag to fill when you see these wonderful treats!

The invitations and recipe cards are so sweet!  I also love the countdown to Christmas with the advent mittens!  They are gorgeous hanging from the mantle!  One of my favorite items from this party is the milk carton favor box- it is adorable!

Treat your guests to cold milk and hot cocoa as they bake and share cookies~decorated with Anders Ruff designs, they become even more exciting!

A hot cocoa bar is a great way to warm up~ a simple display with colorful toppings makes this cocoa bar shine!

I also love the simple display of cookies!  Elevated on cake stands that were painted to match the party, these cookies take center stage for a good reason!

Take a look at these a little closer~this is where you will wish you had your own bag!

What is more perfect than Christmas, cookies, and cocoa shared with your friends?  How fun!

Thank you for sharing your endless ideas with us!

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.
