Giddy-up and ride on over to the cutest little Cowgirl Party– hosted for three sweet little sisters!  Party mom Laura, of Cupcakes and Lemonade, designed this precious party for her precious daughters and didn’t miss a detail!  With handmade help from Laura’s mom and dad, this party is one the sisters will always remember!

Laura held the party at a beautiful stable and greeted the guests with badges and bandannas to help them feel at home on the range~

Laura designed a “Sweets Saloon” filled to the rim with delicious treats for all of the guests~such as cherry pies in jars, cowgirl cookies and cupcakes, horse-shaped chocolate lollipops and chocolate covered Oreos.  I especially love the three “cakes” for each birthday girl~ they are jumbo ruffled cupcakes displayed on pedestals…

Talent and creativity clearly run in the family!  Laura’s mom made the burlap and ruffles tablecloth- and the bandana table runners and birthday-girl-skirts!  Laura’s dad made 30 wooden hobby horses for the children to paint!

There was a candy apple station with lots of toppings and there was a chance to ride horses like a real cowgirl!

The guests could also shop for cowgirl treasures from the General Store~

I love the family photo from the party and the way Laura strung cowgirl and cowboy hats for decoration.  I also LOVE this adorable photo from the party!  How cute that the girls are letting their hobby horses have a look out of the window!

Precious!  Thank you for sharing your daughters’ party, Laura!  What a fabulous celebration!

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! 


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!

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!
