WOW!  Gwynn Wasson , of Gwynn Wasson Designs, planned the most spectacular party for her son’s first birthday!  With bright, vivid colors to represent the joy the birthday boy exudes, this party is full of energy and excitement!  Starting with the moment the invitation arrived, the guests couldn’t wait to see a winter wonderland in sunny California!  This “Onederland” is definitely a party full of great ideas, happy children, and a gorgeous birthday boy!

As guests arrived, they had a glimpse of what was to come…

 

The precious Birthday Boy with his smash cake…

The playhouse was turned into “Chalet Becks” for the day~ I adore those little penguins in the snow!

The children each adopted a polar bear~

And each child was sent home with a snowmaking kit so that they could make their own!

Adorable in EVERY way!

Thank you, Gwynn, for sharing this magical party with us!  It is a delight to see all of the fun and all of the inspiration!  Gwynn designed all of the party stationery herself and has it available in her Etsy Shop, Gwynn Wasson Designs.

LILLY PULITZER CAKE DECORATING FLAMINGO BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS

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 FIESTA ~ MEXICAN THEME BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS

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!

LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE PARTY

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!
