There is nothing cuter than a lemonade stand with eager children happily offering their homemade treats.  My favorite summer vacation spot has lemonade stands dotting the bike paths as you make your way to the beach- I am certain I never passed one without stopping.  I think they are adorable!  That is why I am so happy to share this sweet playdate party with you…a lemonade stand with a special TWIST…all proceeds go to help other children!

Creative mom, Deanna, helped her children set up this bright and cheery lemonade stand in conjunction with a fundraiser hosted by their local television station and The Salvation Army.  The children invited their friends over and enjoyed a hot, fun-filled, philanthropic playdate!  What a great idea!

They sold lemon raspberry muffins, lemon sugar cookies, and yummy Rice Krispie Treats to go along with the lemonade~

I love the apron that Deanna made for her daughter (using napkins saved from the 4th of July!)…

What a fabulous idea for a playdate and a wonderful lesson on giving.  I know the children were so proud when they realized they had raised $71.55 to help homeless children in their area!

Thank you, Deanna, for sharing your children’s sweet party~ it is great party inspiration!

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!”. 


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! 

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!
