This sweet little birthday girl loves strawberry lemonade- and so her creative mom, Kristina, turned her favorite drink into a perfect party theme with a vintage vibe!

I love all of the details of this party- beginning with the cute, customized invitation…

The strawberries in the blue baskets are just beautiful!

The cupcakes for the guests- I love the stand, too!

And the adorable cake for the birthday girl…

Notice the vintage crate used for the serving table and the sweet bunting that decorates it?  Simple and sweet~

Of course, there was lemonade!  What a cute way to serve it!

These cookies are almost too pretty to eat!  Beautiful!


The party favors are a perfect touch!

My favorite photo from the party…

Not only is mom, Kristina, talented at putting together a great party— she also made the appliquéd shirt that the birthday girl is wearing!  How special!


After all of the yummy treats, the birthday girl and her guests were treated to dancing led by Ava’s dance teacher- tutus and all!!  What a perfect day!

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!”. 


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!
