When I first began my blog (not so long ago), I had a party featured on Spaceships and Laserbeams.  I sent Stephanie pictures that were probably more suited for a photo album rather than the World Wide Web…but she featured my party, and I was thrilled!  Now I get to feature one of her parties- and I am thrilled again!  A fantastic baby boy shower with so many different ideas~

The flowers in the background are made of burlap.

The theme was “Our Precious Gift”- I love how they used gift boxes throughout the party.

I love the unique and modern look-

The letter J wrapped in yarn is a great idea to tie in color and texture and to keep the tone boyish and playful.

The baby shower was an intimate party hosted for a close friend who was expecting her third child. The phrase “small and cute” was used, and it is fitting that all of the food was small and cute, too!  Lunch was served on trays that were used as plates and lined with wax paper.  Look how cute~

The gift boxes at each place setting and the centerpieces are some of my favorite details.  It ties it all together!

Thank you, Spaceships and Laserbeams!  What a fun way to celebrate a special baby boy!

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!
