There is a lot to twirl about in this stunning and sweet Ballerina Party by Sara, of The Homespun Hostess/Party Papers! Sara has a fantastic eye for styling and a most creative touch- she makes most of what you will see… with the exception of the desserts that are made by her sister!  Creativity is in the genes, and I am thrilled to share the gorgeous photos of a special Ballerina Birthday for Sara’s adorable daughter!

Sara set up a dessert table and a favor table and also served lunch for the guests.  The dessert table is more than lovely!  And, I just love it that the treats were all made by the birthday girl’s aunt!  That makes it even more special!


Sara set up a perfect lunch table with dainty treats and just the right amount of pink!

The Favor Table was a party guest’s dream!  With so many beautiful, handmade touches…even the boys had their own special favor boxes wrapped with handmade blue bow ties!

Sweet ballerina soaps…

And, handmade noise makers!

And handmade hair clips~

And, for the boys…

A beautiful and memorable day, no doubt!  Thank you for sharing your daughter’s party, Sara!  I bet she danced all 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!”. 


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!
