A sweet Little Cupcake has a first birthday party centered around her nickname!  Mom Kylie, of Made by a Princess Parties in Style, named it Sugarella’s Sweet Shoppe and invited guests to a wonderful display of cupcakes, cupcakes, cupcakes, and more sweet treats!  Enjoy the flavors and delights of this SWEET first birthday party!

What an easy idea that looks so pretty!  Dip Oreos in melted chocolate and sprinkle with sugar crystals…

So many yummy cupcake flavors, such as Key Lime…

Thin Mint…

Salted Caramel…

Pink Vanilla…

And, mini chocolate cupcakes~

Pink Marshmallow Pops added to the Sweet Shoppe fun!

Kylie turned a room in her house into an adorable Sweet Shoppe with cute cupcake details!

Other party details were customized drink labels and a keepsake “Wishes for Megan” table for the guests to leave messages for the Birthday Girl!  The messages were written by a kindergarten family friend which ups the sweet factor…

Kylie also repurposed baby food containers to use for guests to take home mini cupcakes and candies~

And the Little Cupcake had a BIG cupcake to enjoy for her FIRST BIRTHDAY!

What a cute party, Kylie!  Thank you for sharing these fun ideas for a Sweet Shoppe Cupcake Birthday!  Kylie shares more details and party recipes on her blog- be sure to see all of the details!

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!


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! 

Birthday Party Ideas for a Teen- How to Celebrate a TEEN

Wow! My daughter turned into a teen!  Sometimes it can be tricky to decide what to do to celebrate this milestone.  I wanted to share with you some ideas that may help if you want to mark the occasion but also keep it low-key.  At first, my daughter wanted to have a very large sleepover to celebrate.  I loved it that she wanted to include everyone she knew, but laughed at the thought of trying to corral close to 30 tweens and teens! So, I told her she could have a little, bitty, teeny sleepover and her “real” party could be bubble soccer (which she had been begging to do at this huge sleepover she was planning ).  So, realizing the play on words with a “teeny” party, we went with the TEENY theme and used as many miniature things as we could.  It was such a fun theme and the ideas could go on forever…but this is what we decided on for her teeny, little sleepover.
