This darling party was designed by Jackie of The Little Nook in Atlanta, GA.  The little birthday girl wanted to be a bug for her birthday- and so they settled on a ladybug as the main theme and incorporated other bug friends along the way…

Jackie incorporated buggy foods in such cute ways while keeping it simple and kid-friendly~

The activities were spot-on, too!

The kids seem to love their roles as bugs…

The birthday girl was a beautiful Princess Bug for the day…

And each of her friends buzzed home with an adorable jar of ladybugs~

What a sweet party full of details and charm!

I have been so excited to share this party by THE LITTLE NOOK so that I could also share with you the other exciting adventures that are available from The Little Nook.  Jackie has created a fabulous environment where children can explore and learn- and parents can enjoy staying and playing or having a “Mom’s Morning” while the children are happily engaged in activities…




And I love this idea- glow in the dark face paint for a lesson on fireflies…

And a jar for catching fireflies with a night-time surprise, thanks to glow-in-the-dark paint.

 You will love what The Little Nook has to offer~

The Little Nook is located in the heart of Buckhead- 530 East Paces Ferry Road- Atlanta, GA

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!

CAMILLE’S CLUBHOUSE ~ Confectionery, Soda Shoppe, Spa

My daughter had lots of ideas of what she wanted to do to celebrate her 10th birthday!  She wanted to have lots of cookies~ and have a soda shoppe ~ and set up a spa for nail painting!  With so many ideas, I knew we should come up with something that would tie it all together.  And, that is how Camille’s Clubhouse became the theme- the Clubhouse is where you can find lots of her favorite things!  We sent invitations with a an insert that had a “password” that had to be unscrambled and brought to the party for “entry”.  That was an easy way to get the guests involved before the party even started!
