I must admit, I was so surprised when I saw the photos that went along with this adorable party!  I must also admit that I was expecting purple, orange, and at least one backpack!  How cute and fun is this fantastic Dora the Explorer Party by Karolina of Karo’s Fun Land?  Karolina used a pastel color scheme of pink and blue and loads of ruffles and flowers.  This party is loaded with inspiration for any type of party!

Karolina handmade all of the flower poms and ruffled accents that you see throughout the party~

I always admire someone who can take a commercial theme and make it extra-special and customized to suit the birthday child!  Karolina definitely made this party shine with all of her creative touches!

What a great way to celebrate with a Dora Party- thank you for sharing all of your ideas, Karolina!

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!”.
