New Year’s Eve is just around the corner and, with Christmas decorations still twinkling around the house, it is the perfect opportunity to use what is already decking your halls to also ring in the new year!  Deanna, of Mirabelle Creations, shows us how to do just that!  I love the color scheme of pink, red, and silver- a fresh take from the traditional blue, black, or gold! 

The snowflake design is perfect for a winter night and makes an easy transition from Christmas to New Year’s Eve…

I love how Deanna used a red charger on a pale pink tablecloth and topped the place setting with a dainty napkin embroidered with snowflakes and tied with a pink ribbon~

Pomegranate Tea Fizz is made cocktail-ready for the adults by adding vodka.  The beautiful silver ornament is a reminder of the ball that drops on New Year’s Eve- I love the subtle nod to the tradition.

Here’s to a New Year and a beautiful night spent celebrating with wonderful family and friends- and delightful treats!!  Thank you, Deanna, for sharing your party inspiration with us.  I love the soft take on the New Year’s Eve celebration!  To find these party printables and more, stop by Mirabelle Creations.  CHEERS!

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!



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!


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!”.
