Strawberries have always been one of my favorites, and seeing Alison Lawson Cakes‘ beautiful desserts decorated with strawberries reaffirms that thought!  What a gorgeous display of lovely sweets- I am thrilled to share Alison’s talents with you!  How perfect for a birthday party, spring party, or for a lovely way to do a Strawberry Shortcake theme…

Cupcakes and Marshmallow Pops with a dainty, red strawberry look gorgeous~

Ruffled Cookie Pops remind me of strawberry blossoms…

Jell-O served in glass jars with ribbons and spoons make a sweet statement on the dessert table~

And, Swirled Meringues are just the right touch!  Just beautiful!

What a wonderful dessert table, Alison!  I love the mix of white, yellow polka dots, and gingham!  Thank you for sharing!

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!”.
