With Father’s Day a couple of weeks away, I am excited to share this party for a father and husband that is truly all heart.  Shevi, of Little Wish Cakes in Australia, designed this party for several reasons…to celebrate her husband’s birthday and as a send-off as he leaves on a business trip that will be his first trip away from his family.  This party is full of sentimental value…Shevi and her husband were only able to exchange love letters when they first began dating due to conservative backgrounds.  After they were engaged, they lived in separate countries for a year and, again, exchanged letters to get them through!  Thus, the focus of the party is Love Letters!

Other than the macarons, Shevi made each of the desserts herself.  The cake is fabulous with love letters wrapped around and tied with simple twine. Cupcakes with love notes and a heart are beautiful~

Sealed With a Kiss Cookies~

Not only did Shevi make the desserts and treats, she made all of the decorations by hand.  The heart on the backdrop is made from schrunched serviettes (paper napkins)!  Shevi wrapped buckets with coir to create the flower vases, and she made the lovely paper heart garlands.

What a special party!  I love sentimental touches, and this party is full of love and sentiment!  Thank you for sharing, Shevi- I am touched by the thought that you put into this party for your husband!

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!”. 


What began as a simple gesture to introduce my daughter to a wonderful book series has become a special evening ritual for us- reading Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House books!  I must admit, I didn’t realize quite how interesting these books would be to her, but she cannot wait to read all nine in the series.  It was only fitting that her birthday party focus around Little House on the Prairie!  Together, we had a ball planning all of the details of her party that related to the books in some way.  At Camille’s request, we focused on some of her favorite parts of the stories… prairie flowers, covered wagons, tee pees, the colors in the drawings of the books,  and “pretty”…because “Ma” liked things to be pretty!
