What could be better than ice cream sundaes with a cherry on top?  How about ice cream sundaes with a cherry on top AND a GIVEAWAY?!!  Renee, of The Creative Orchard, has put together a darling display of party ideas for a sweet , vintage, cherry SUNDAE get-together that you will just love!  And, best of all…you can win many of the party elements!  Find the giveaway info at the end of this post- and grab a long spoon for a yummy taste of creative and cute!

Renee refurbished the tea cart and sewed an awning for the top- isn’t that adorable?  I love it that she plans to use the cart for her daughter’s room!  Renee also made the fabric ice cream cones that are hanging from the ceiling.  The crafty hanging ice cream cones were made using a similar technique as this tutorial by Icing Designs.  This is one of my favorite elements!

For desserts Renee served Cherry Sundaes and Cherry Cola Floats. The ingredients provided were neapolitan ice cream, cherries, sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, cool whip, chocolate syrup, grenadine and Coca-Cola soda pop. All accessories had a retro style such as an old fashioned gumball machine, straw dispenser, ice cream shoppe glassware, napkin dispenser, chalkboard, chrome clock and candy canisters.

Renee also made the bunting- I love the scalloped look!

 Such a great party theme for any age!  Remember to enter for a chance to win a CHERRY SUNDAE PARTY PACKAGE (including that darling apron) from The Creative Orchard!  Here is the link to enter : GO HERE

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!


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. 


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!”.
