Enter into the “House of Spookiness” by Michelle, at Party Plan-It Designs!  Michelle shares her festive desserts and treats as she gets ready for night to fall~ and then on comes the black light... and the spookiness really begins.  Watch the transformation in this post- and then add a little “black light spookiness” to your Halloween night!

Michelle set the stage with sweets for the sweets- one of my favorite ideas is chocolate fondue served in a witches cauldron.  With caramel marshmallows on the side for dipping, I am sure no one was afraid of this witches brew!

Candy-corn-shaped sugar cookies added bright color and brownie pops resembeled mummies for a fun way to add a little spookiness!

Michelle made a bundt cake out of Rice Krispies by following the recipe for Rice Krispie Treats and adding food color to make it resemble candy corn!  She also topped it with shaved coconut~

Ghost Peeps on a stick were perfect for little ones to enjoy!

Michelle also made fondant skulls using ice cube trays she found at the Dollar Store!

Dinner was served first, of course, and the table was set using lots of black and purple~

Each place setting had a personalized  “Loot Bag” made by Michelle.

And as night fell, the black lights were turned on…

Michelle always plans such FUN parties for her children and their friends and family!  There is SO MUCH MORE TO SEE from this party- Michelle planned this party on a budget and shares her resources and tips + games and activities on her website- go here for more of this party!

Thank you, Party Plan-It Designs!  What a great night for the kids!!

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!
