This is one Mother’s Day Soiree that will leave you feeling bright and happy all over!  Cris, of Crissy’s Crafts, designed a party by the pool to celebrate Mother’s Day with friends and family- these ideas would look equally gorgeous indoors or out!  AND, Amanda’s Parties to Go is offering FREE printables from this party in her shop! Great ideas and freebies, too!

With pops of bright pink, orange, and yellow, this festive party has tons of decorating inspiration and lovely food~ like the marshmallow-flower cupcakes!

The mini cheesecakes look beautiful displayed on the paper found at Target that matches the color-scheme.  Everything is tied together is such a great way using the paper printables from Amanda.

How cute are the cake pops made to look like flowers?

The ACTIVITIES FOR THE KIDS are fantastic!  I wish I had done a hand painting on canvas each year for my children!  What a sweet Mother’s Day gift!

A gardening table was also set-up for the children to plant a flower for their mothers!

Handsoap tied with matching tags and ribbon were also favors for the moms…

And these adorable boxes of Kisses- perfectly dressed-up with printable party paper from Amanda’s Parties to Go!

What a happy day and a great way to celebrate Mom!  Thank you for sharing, Crissy!

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!
