I love the idea of a Candy Valentine Village for a Valentine’s Day Party, and so I am excited to share this party with you!  The details are adorable!  Eleanor, of Pink Peppermint Paper, hosted this party for her daughter in December.  Eleanor wanted the party to feel more “Birthday” rather than “Christmas” and I think she did a great job!  This would be cute for Valentine’s Day, a Sweet Shoppe Party, Candy Land, or for a Dollhouse Party.   Her ideas can be used year-round!  Such as these adorable door decorations…

Eleanor used gable boxes as the base for the houses~ she added windows and doors for such a cute effect!

Each of the guests were given a white bakery box that Eleanor found in the baking section at Michael’s.  She added roofs and glued the houses to paper rounds that were decorated with Washi tape!  What a smart way to add color!  I also love how the icing is called “Sugar Cement”!

There were lots of decorating options…

The Birthday Girl hard at work…

I love the simple pink trees~

Eleanor carried the candy theme throughout the party- I especially like how she wrapped the napkins with candy bracelets!

What a cute idea for a party!  Perfect for so many celebrations!

Thank you for sharing your adorable ideas, Eleanor!

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!”. 

CAMILLE’S CLUBHOUSE ~ Confectionery, Soda Shoppe, Spa

My daughter had lots of ideas of what she wanted to do to celebrate her 10th birthday!  She wanted to have lots of cookies~ and have a soda shoppe ~ and set up a spa for nail painting!  With so many ideas, I knew we should come up with something that would tie it all together.  And, that is how Camille’s Clubhouse became the theme- the Clubhouse is where you can find lots of her favorite things!  We sent invitations with a an insert that had a “password” that had to be unscrambled and brought to the party for “entry”.  That was an easy way to get the guests involved before the party even started!
