I am sew smitten with this party!  Christine of Pure Joy Events designed the most beautiful party for her little girl based on her daughter’s love of her new sewing machine (a Christmas gift).  There are so many details that you don’t want to miss!  The invitations were the first hint at what a darling party it would be…

What a wonderful idea to have the invitation on a spool!  I also love the vintage sewing machine~notice it is set on “7”.

The party was set in the children’s playroom with treats and activities that were sew perfect!  Button shaped lollipops held by spools, spool-shaped cake pops dressed with matching tape, and handmade pin cushions to hold the sign- such wonderful ways to tie in the theme.

The perfectly beautiful cookies~

I love how the drink bottles were tied with twine and a button!


Raspberry Parfaits match perfectly~

And, the adorable cake…how clever!


The activities were so much fun.  They began with guessing how many buttons in the jar and hoop toss!

I am sure the girls will always treasure their first attempt at sewing!

And their sweet handmade pencil bags to take home as favors~

Wow!  It looks like it is SEW fun to be SEVEN!

What a beautiful party with such thoughtful details!  Thank you for sharing, Christine!

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!
