I am pretty sure mom, Lauren, felt like she lived in a pineapple under the sea while getting ready for this Spongebob Squarepants BIG Soiree!  Lauren turned the party space into a virtual sea by covering the wall in ocean scenery complete with Spongebob and all of his friends!

The dessert table was the focal point of the room (other than the Birthday Boy, of course!), and Lauren covered it in a sea display loaded with whimsical treats for her sweet Kal-el!

The Birthday Boy likes what he sees!

Something tells me this is ONE FUN FAMILY!!  Even Kal-el’s grandparents joined in in the biggest way!  And, they brought Crabby Patties to the party!

Lauren has so many fun pictures of this party on her blog, Being the Borquez’s  – a blog about their lives as a former model (mom) and as a boxer (dad) raising their (not so) little boys!

Thank you for sharing your son’s party, Lauren! Happy Birthday, Kal-el!!

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!


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!
