Super Colin has a super family that has just as much fun on his birthday as he does!  Mom, Danielle, planned this Super Hero Party for Colin’s birthday, and everyone sprang into action!  Colin, his brother, and his father all suited up in costumes for this high-flying fun day full of sweet friends, sweet treats, and lots of adventure!

I love how the chairs were draped with capes and masks were ready to be decorated as soon as the guests arrived!  Danielle found various clip art online and made the tags that you see at the party. 

The Birthday Boy ready to fight off the villain and his friend with his mask (one of my favorite pictures!)…

After everyone had their costumes, capes, and masks, and were powered-up with healthy treats, they noticed that someone had stolen all of the birthday gifts!!  The hunt for the villain was on!  Danielle set up an obstacle course that the children must complete to find the thief.  They found him hiding in the fort with all of the gifts!

The Villain (Colin’s Dad) was brought to justice, all gifts returned to the Birthday Boy, and the Super Heroes could enjoy CUPCAKES to celebrate the exciting adventure that was COLIN’S BIRTHDAY!

Cupcakes for all (maybe even the villain)…

Danielle made super-cute favor pails and displayed them with a Super Colin shield that she painted!

This party delivers all the fun a little boy could want with a BANG!  Thank you for sharing this fun-filled, cute-as-can-be party with us, Danielle!!  SUPER JOB!

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! 

CAMILLE’S CLUBHOUSE ~ Confectionery, Soda Shoppe, Spa

My daughter had lots of ideas of what she wanted to do to celebrate her 10th birthday!  She wanted to have lots of cookies~ and have a soda shoppe ~ and set up a spa for nail painting!  With so many ideas, I knew we should come up with something that would tie it all together.  And, that is how Camille’s Clubhouse became the theme- the Clubhouse is where you can find lots of her favorite things!  We sent invitations with a an insert that had a “password” that had to be unscrambled and brought to the party for “entry”.  That was an easy way to get the guests involved before the party even started!


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!
