Renee, of The Creative Orchard, came up with a fun idea for her son for his FIRST trip to see a movie on the BIG SCREEN!  Because his first movie would be The Lorax, Renee had a little fun tying in the theme to a simple breakfast before the big adventure.  Renee knows how to take an exciting day for a 2-year-old and make it even more fun!  For starters, take a look at these adorable Truffula Trees made from feather boas and pinwheels

I really love those truffula trees!  I also love how poms add to the fun with just the right Dr Suess look!

The breakfast that Renee made for her excited little toddler stayed true to the theme of the day!

Pancakes were shaped like the Lorax’s mustache, and Renee made hash brown eyes and scrambled egg eyebrows!  I especially love how she added a funny mustache to the bottle of orange juice…

Good to the last drop-

Renee also read the story to her son and had a large scene from the story ready for him to color~

To make their day out together complete, they were sure to plant some seeds~ and they even were able to get baby sister in on the fun!

What a fun day!  A Lorax breakfast, the Lorax movie, and fun activities with mom (and sister)! 

Thank you for sharing your cute ideas for us to use for weekend fun or for a Lorax-inspired 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!”. 

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!


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!
