Pastel colors and the sweetness of little girls and ice cream make this party a dream!  Leoni, of Just Call Me Martha, hosted this beautiful soiree for her daughter’s birthday!  Leoni made the desserts and styled the party!  It is a jaw-dropper, and it is featured in the spring edition of Celebrate magazine!

The photos are already stunning and that is only the cake!  Leoni made so many delightful and delicous treats for the children!  Look at these adorable popsicle lollipops!

Ice cream cone cookies- dipped in white chocolate at the top and then covered with sprinkles just like an actual ice cream cone!

And cake pops to look like ice cream cones, too!

The playful flower arrangement is beautiful and whimsical with a nod to an old-fashioned milkshake.

Strawberry Mousse is served in mini glasses with candy-rimmed glasses.

Mini  milkshakes were also served…

The sweet Birthday Girl enjoys her ice cream and her friends…

The children took home favors that were perfect for the ice cream theme!

Such a lovely party, Leoni!  Thank you for sharing it with us!  You are one talented lady!!

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!”. 

Birthday Party Ideas for a Teen- How to Celebrate a TEEN

Wow! My daughter turned into a teen!  Sometimes it can be tricky to decide what to do to celebrate this milestone.  I wanted to share with you some ideas that may help if you want to mark the occasion but also keep it low-key.  At first, my daughter wanted to have a very large sleepover to celebrate.  I loved it that she wanted to include everyone she knew, but laughed at the thought of trying to corral close to 30 tweens and teens! So, I told her she could have a little, bitty, teeny sleepover and her “real” party could be bubble soccer (which she had been begging to do at this huge sleepover she was planning ).  So, realizing the play on words with a “teeny” party, we went with the TEENY theme and used as many miniature things as we could.  It was such a fun theme and the ideas could go on forever…but this is what we decided on for her teeny, little sleepover.
