Glimmering fish, a sea full of bubbles, and a cute little play-on-words come together for one fabulously smashing party by Cris, of Crissy’s Crafts!  Cris’ son recently turned 3, and she styled his party after his favorite book.  With so many great ideas, you are sure to find enough to share!

Gummy worm fish “bait” is one of my favorite ideas!  Read on for more adorable ideas!  And, the fantastic Fish Paper Collection is by Amanda’s Parties to Go!

Cris served M&M’s in containers labeled “Fish Food”…

Marshmallow pops swam with bubbles and sea creatures~

Customized candy bars also lured the children to the sweets table…

The dessert table was so beautifully put together!  I especially love the bubbles in the picture!

Before they hit the sweet table, the little guests ate whale crackers, fish sandwiches, fish skewers (fruits), fin-tastic veggies, and submarines. The kids also enjoyed an afternoon full of games and crafts. The activities included Go Fish, Pin the Scale on the Fish, Fish Hand Print Art, Face Painting, and Freeze Little Fish Dance. At the end of the party, the guests  took home the ‘catch of the day’ (fish string bag on a fish pole) full of goodies!

A really fantastic celebration!  Thank you for sharing, Cris!

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!
