This sensational dessert table is a dream!  Juli, of One Sweet Girl, simply had a vision in her mind of creating something so beautiful~ and she enlisted the help of an equally (immensely) talented flower designer and photographer.  The photos beautifully capture the ideas Juli created in her mind.  Over- flowing with 30 bouquets of peonies in all shades of pink, treats that are gorgeous beyond belief, and streaming golden sunlight, the photos speak for themselves~

The cupcakes with ruffled blooms match the stunning 3-tiered ombre ruffled petal cake~

Lovely cake pops nestled among the blooms~

Juli also made raspberry flavored gourmet marshmallows~

And, peony-inspired vanilla bean cookies…

Coconut ice, a lovely Australian treat…

Look at the beautiful rosewater meringues sprinkled with edible sparkle dust!

The cascade of peonies down the tablecloth is such beautiful design…

Stunning, beautiful, breath-taking…it goes on and on!  Juli’s fabulous ombre, ruffled, petal cake is outstanding and then she continued to wow us with so many other desserts- marshmallows, meringues, coconut ice, decorated sugar cookies.  Three amazing and creative forces collided to bring together this party inspiration!  Wow!  Thank you for sharing this amazing design with us!

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.
