This lovely party, by Suzanna of Mon Tresor, was designed for a young lady’s 21st birthday!  With a black and white color scheme, the very popular quatrefoil pattern, and touches of glam, this party was the perfect way to celebrate being 21!  Several of these ideas would work equally well for a Mardis Gras Party, a Rockstar Party, or Disco Party (notice the tablecloth!)… 

There is nothing like a plume on top of a cake for a dramatic effect!


Suzanna dressed up the glass candy jars with black ribbons and sparkly brooches~

Cake pops make a sweet statement in sophisticated black and white…

And, you can easily add pops of silver with silver dragees on top of cupcakes!

Suzanna also added Swizzle Sticks of Rock Candy in black and white…

Beautiful flowers add a lovely, soft touch-

And here is a better look at the tablecloth that sparkles with a big statement!

And, I love the quatrefoil design on the Chocolate Bar Wrappers!  A perfect favor for the guests!

Thank you for sharing your lovely dessert table and party ideas, Suzanna!

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! 




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!



This Mardi Gras party by FIZZY PARTY is fabulous, fun, and of course, french!  No doubt, you will see lots of inspiration for birthday party ideas as well as that fabulous once-a-year celebration of Mardi Gras! I love how FIZZY PARTY took us down a different street with this one- rather than the typical purple, green, and gold, Tiffany opted for softer lavender and gold with lots of white.  It is fabulous and would be a great party any time of the year!
