Graduation is a BUSY time, and Cris, of Crissy’s Crafts. shows us how to celebrate with flair without spending too much time in the kitchen!  Crissy bought all of the food and spent her time decorating with printables that are FREE from Bird’s Party!  And, be sure to watch for those Swiss Roll diplomas!

With a menu of diploma rolls(swiss roll), fancy Cakesters(added some gold sprinkles), cupcakes, almond kisses, mini Reese’s cups, push up cupcakes and caramel popcorn…the sweets table was a delight!

The decorations all centered around the free printables from Bird’s Party.  Notice how Cris used them to dress up the cupcakes, the drink jars, and the gable boxes.  The star cut-outs make easy and festive decorations!  I also like how Crissy layered big, fluffy poms and yellow lanterns as a centerpiece!

Such a great presentation for such a special occasion!

The idea behind the printable designs is that is can be used for any type of graduation party, be it junior high school, high school, or college –  And Bird is offering these Graduation Party Printables as FREE Printable Downloads to all Bird’s Facebook fans!!

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!”.
