Cheery yellow daffodils are such a beautiful way to celebrate any occasion, and I love how Norene, of Party Pinching, incorporated them in her dessert table for Mother’s Day!  With these gorgeous ideas on a budget, you can wow your mom on Mother’s Day and help her feel as super special as she is!

Norene also added touches of pearls and lace as a nod to Mother’s Day~ you will see them here and there throughout the dessert table…notice how they line the serving dishes and the flower vases.

Norene made the simple cupcakes and topped them with a fondant daffodil.  The cupcake liners are a perfect way to tie in daffodils and they are available in craft stores.

In order to save time (because Norene is a mom, too!), meringue cups were store bought and filled with lemon custard.  Aren’t they adorable?  They look like they took hours!

These tiny, painted pots make the cutest treats- and they would be great at a place setting, too!  Norene simply used fondant petals around the lollipops…

The white pots filled with white candies are so cute!

Another of my favorite ideas…marshmallows dipped in yellow candy melts and decorated with a fondant flower and pearl sprinkles!

Norene added in a few more store-bought mini meringues and displayed them in glasses tied with lace~

Put it all together and you have a beautiful, budget-friendly dessert display with minimal time spent in the kitchen!  Every mother’s wish for Mother’s Day!

GORGEOUS AND SIMPLE- but you would never know the simple part!  Thank you for always sharing such fabulous ideas with us, Norene!  I hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day!

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!”. 

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. 




Any chance I get, I love to share what my friends at Anders Ruff Designs are doing!  Maureen and Adria are ALWAYS up to something creative!  And so, I bring you another fabulous party design and graphic design by Anders-Ruff!  They were kind enough to share their thoughts on what makes a wonderful Thanksgiving table.  Their eye for using natural elements and incorporating their fantastic paper designs makes the celebration warm and cozy!
