It’s a football double feature today!  All of this tailgating has me ready for the game- and I couldn’t leave out this positively perfect Football Birthday Party by Amanda of Shindig Parties to Go!  Not to mention, an AUBURN football birthday party.  I already let the cat (or should I say Tiger?) out of the bag and told you I am an Auburn girl- and so I couldn’t resist sharing this fantastic party for Chap– hosted last year during Auburn’s most celebrated year! Keep in mind, party printables can be adjusted to fit your favorite team!

Notice the turf?  I love how Amanda thought of every little detail!

A built-in party activity that they could do all day!  Amanda even painted the Auburn emblem in the middle of the “field” and the “end zones” just like at the stadium!      I love this action shot…

The goal post at the party table is my favorite!  Here it is up close…

Definitely a party for the WIN column!  Thank you, Amanda, for sharing your son’s party!

Party Printables are available at Shindig- order them in your team’s colors!

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!
