Wow!  This table of gorgeous and yummy Halloween treats will put you in the Halloween “spirit” for sure!     Marisol, of Modishly Delish, designed this truly SPOOK-tacular dessert table…

With an emphasis on orange desserts to coordinate with black and white, Marisol added in a bit of blue and chartreuse to really make it mod!

How perfect are the asian spoons filled with candy and tied with a blue ribbon?  And the dipped apples with sticks… one of my favorite details!

Her dessert choices are fantastic- pumpkin mousse (served in delightful little glasses), Oreo cheesecake…

And for a little balance to the sweetness…party mix served in the mini black bowls!


Cupcakes with toppers made by Marisol, herself! 

Pumpkin bread cut into pumpkin shapes and bat-shaped grilled cheese add to the perfectly selected menu!

The black, chevron-striped bags make a very hip favor bag…

And the adorable, cut out ghosts make you not even blink about bringing a ghost home with you!

Marisol cleverly painted water bottles to resemble ghosts to create a unique and spooky beverage- topped off with a black polka-dot straw!

My mom always made meringues when I was growing up, and so I love this little goblin meringue hanging from a branch!

What fabulous attention to detail!  This is definitely a party to bookmark!

The paper party products are available from Modishly Delish on Etsy…

Marisol kindly shares her ideas, tips, and tricks for this party on her blog.  Be sure to read all of the details…

Thank you, Modishly Delish!

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!”. 

Birthday Party Ideas for a Teen- How to Celebrate a TEEN

Wow! My daughter turned into a teen!  Sometimes it can be tricky to decide what to do to celebrate this milestone.  I wanted to share with you some ideas that may help if you want to mark the occasion but also keep it low-key.  At first, my daughter wanted to have a very large sleepover to celebrate.  I loved it that she wanted to include everyone she knew, but laughed at the thought of trying to corral close to 30 tweens and teens! So, I told her she could have a little, bitty, teeny sleepover and her “real” party could be bubble soccer (which she had been begging to do at this huge sleepover she was planning ).  So, realizing the play on words with a “teeny” party, we went with the TEENY theme and used as many miniature things as we could.  It was such a fun theme and the ideas could go on forever…but this is what we decided on for her teeny, little sleepover. 




Any chance I get, I love to share what my friends at Anders Ruff Designs are doing!  Maureen and Adria are ALWAYS up to something creative!  And so, I bring you another fabulous party design and graphic design by Anders-Ruff!  They were kind enough to share their thoughts on what makes a wonderful Thanksgiving table.  Their eye for using natural elements and incorporating their fantastic paper designs makes the celebration warm and cozy!
