An uber-talented mom designed and hosted a fabulous Woodland Fairie Party for her daughter’s 9th birthday!  Nikki of Nikkiikkin has a creative eye and loads of talent- she is an interior designer in New York City who also designs invitations and bakes beautiful cakes!  This party is a delight!

Nikki used a fairie image and framed it with a grapevine wreath to give it a woodland feel~

Tree rounds, moss, and rocks add perfect details for a woodland party…

I especially love how Nikki attached the straws to the round tags by threading them through holes punched in the tags.  Simple brown twine holds the tags~

The cake that was so lovingly made by Nikki looks as though it is on a wooden stand… the stand is actually a “dummy cake” covered in fondant and was carved and handpainted by Nikki to look “faux bois”…quite an amazing detail!

Nikki usually makes the invitations herself, but she found this beautiful and fitting invitation…

Nikki designed welcome signs, activity signs, and a menu based on the invitation she used~

The girls decorated “Fairie Houses” and went on a “Treasure Hunt” to find fairie treasures~

There is a gorgeous cafe close to their building in NYC, and so the girls walked over to enjoy a woodland fairie lunch.  Nikki arranged for the girls to make their menu selections before they arrived and each girl simply had to hand their menu choice to the server.  What a brilliant way to order for a large group!

Thank you for sharing this lovely party with us, Nikki!  You overflow with talent!!

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!
