Down on the farm is a cute way to celebrate any birthday, and little Miss Ellie looks right at home on Ellie’s Acres!  Have fun on the farm as you visit this adorable party hosted by creative mom Stephanie of Animal Cracker Events by Executive Creations!  I love the sign (made by Ellie’s dad) that welcomed the guests!

This party was to celebrate Ellie’s first birthday!  There was definitely a moo moo here and a moo moo there!

Look closely and you will see that cute little cow bell wrapped around the utensils…

So smart to find them in miniature!

I love how the veggies are displayed next to a large bundle of corn~

Stephanie actually made the red barn from popsicle sticks!  How clever!

And, each guest took home farm-related books and egg carton favor boxes full of farm animal fun!

I know Ellie enjoyed her special day!  How sweet!

Invite your friends and neighbors over for some summertime  fun with a MOO-vie Night right in your backyard!  I had the pleasure of working with sweet mom, Beth, on an end-of-the-school-year party for her 4-year-old son and his classmates and teachers!  We brainstormed a few ideas and decided the COW theme was a perfect fit for moo-vies and the fact that the little host’s favorite color is black!  It was MOO-velous to see them all having such a great time!


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! 


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!
