I am so thrilled to share the beautiful talent of Jeandre’ of South Africa with you all!  Jeandre’s eye for design shines through in her beautiful cakes and desserts as well as her fabulous design abilities.  Her website, Love at First Sight, is a delight- it is full of lovely inspiration for life’s celebrations!  Here, Jeandre’ shares her ideas for a gorgeous Vintage Tea Party with dressy dresses for twirling in a beautiful forest setting…enjoy! 


The desserts are so dainty and lovely~ I especially love this tiny, blue cake…

Chocolate bars are so pretty wrapped in fancy wrappers~

I adore the flowing drape of the table skirt on this table~ how beautiful!

Playing dress up at the party…

Jeandre’ is a true talent!  Her combination of vintage brooches, silky satin, wonderful desserts, and perfect details has me looking forward to her next party design!

Thank you for sharing your lovely ideas, Jeandre’!

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! 


This gorgeous and adorable party was designed by LookieBoo for her little girl who was celebrating her 2nd birthday.  Her parents have always called her their “Beauty Queen” which became the obvious theme for her celebration.  With a windy, rainy day to add drama to their day, the party was rushed inside and displayed beautifully.  LookieBoo definitely earned her crown with this delightfully girly party for her daughter, Ruby Mae!
