What’s not to love about boats, sailing, the ocean, and birthdays?  Sara, from Portugal, styled a fun-loving nautical party for her son’s 4th birthday, and she added so many cute details!  I am excited to share her fabulous ideas for styling a seaside celebration!  I especially love these adorable little sailboats!

I also love the origami boats floating on the ocean blue party ball!  How clever!

This is such a darling tent made to resemble a sailboat~ Sara added quilts and pillows for a cozy spot to set sail during the party!

The party food was just as cute and festive~ take a look at this fabulous fruit sailboat…

Sara did a great job of making the party basics look stylish~

Festive sails on the straws…

The party guests were treated to gold coins scooped from the sea!

What a fun day for a sweet little boy!  Thank you for sharing the party fun with us, Sara!

CAMILLE’S FIESTA ~ MEXICAN THEME BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS

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! 

LILLY PULITZER CAKE DECORATING FLAMINGO BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS

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!”.
