Turning two sometimes turns you into a MONSTER, they say- but this little Birthday Boy looks way too sweet to be a monster!  His mom Michelle, of Party Plan-It Designs, styled this adorable party to celebrate his adorable monsterous side!  With fabulous pops of color combined with white polka dots on black, this party is a feast for the (monster) eyes!

 Any little monster would love to sink his teeth into these fabulous cookies!

I love the ribbon backdrop that Michelle assembled using ribbons- such a great idea for any party in any color!

Monster cakepops caught everyone’s eye…

Michelle also set up a separate table and used poster-size images of monsters as the backdrop~

The children’s table was set with placemats available from Party Plan-It.  The guests also played many monster party games such as Pin the Eye on the Monster game, Create-A-Monster station, Activity Placemats, Monster Hats, Monster Toss and Monster Bowling. They also had a photo booth with props made by Michelle.. Gable boxes held treats for the children and served as the party favors…

Such a fun party and such an adorable Birthday Boy…

Thank you for sharing your son’s party, Michelle!  What a great party design!  You added so many fabulous details!  Be sure to stop by Party Plan-It Designs to see more of this great party!

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!

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.
