It is always a treat when Deanna, of Mirabelle Creations, shares her ideas with us! Using a combo of polka dots and stripes and adding cute little bats with bowties and hairbows, Deanna sets the stage for a sweet dessert table that serves up fun for the whole family!  Hang tight and enjoy simple ideas made party-perfect- they are fabulous for your Halloween celebrations!

Store-bought Brownie Bites look great with vanilla icing piped on top and with an orange gumball as the topper!  Name them “Brownie Bat Bites” and, there you go!

Look how Deanna transformed cake from a mix and creamsicle icing into daring desserts!

Store-bought caramel apples also look fun and festive displayed with cute flags on the stems!

A tower of cupcakes with a bowl of matching candy…a fabulous way to dress up the table and serve your guests!  Store-bought cupcakes get dressed for Halloween with cute printed toppers!

The invitation sets the “sweet” tone of the party and the floating paper dot garlands give it a light touch!  Couple the garlands with orange tissue poms, and the table is playful, festive, and gorgeous!

Thank you for sharing your Halloween party ideas, Deanna!  I love the orange, black, and gray combination of colors and the sweet spin you added to the party!

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!




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!
