Soldiers dressed in uniforms have always been impressive, and party designer Mariana Sperb of Mariana Sperb Party and Design in Brazil, takes this Soldier Birthday Party way beyond impressive!  With an incredible backdrop and many exquisite treats, the soldiers take center stage among the double-decker buses and delightful little teddy bears to celebrate a first birthday party in true London fashion!  Fantastic!

There is so much to see on this beautiful table!  I just love the bus across the front of the table, the directional signs, and of course, the Bobbies!

The mix of soldiers and teddy bears is such a sweet and unexpected part of the party decor.  Such a perfect pairing for a little boy!

The top tier of the cake brings the two together…

Hand-decorated cookies are just another beautiful touch~

Gorgeous cakepops~

The favors were in keeping with the rest of the party design and were cuter than cute!

Such an outstanding party!

Mariana kindly wrote me to ask if I would like to feature any of her parties, and she gave me free reign to choose which party I liked best.  That was impossible, quite honestly, as they are all amazing in every way!  I encourage you to stop by her blog, and see all that Mariana creates!  She is fabulously creative and energetic!  Each party is a show-stopper!  Her name should read Mariana Superb!

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! 


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!
