This party SOARS with great ideas for hosting an out-of-this-world celebration!  Aimee Dunne entertained her daughter Lola’s friends at this fabulous party with rockets, aliens, and Jell-O slime!  The crisp white makes a great backdrop for the bright pops of color throughout the party.  6…5…4…3…2…1…

“Star Cakes” shine with cute toppers and table tents~

Super-cute alien cake pops stare at all of the guests-

A rocket ship cake is surrounded by stars…

And, lots of lollipops and candy jars!

Slime made of Jell-O looks fun to eat in these cute jars tied with a spoon!


 And, Rocket Fuel for proper launching~

The party space is such a perfect setting for the party!  I love the chairs, too!

The dessert display is celestial and fun all in one!

Lola’s 6th Birthday was stellar, no doubt! 

Thank you for sharing your daughter’s darling party, Aimee!  It is such a great party for a wide range of ages and perfect for a birthday girl or boy!

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! 


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!”. 


Amanda, of Shindig Parties to Go, put this bowling party together for her daughter and made it one stylish affair full of great ideas that she shares with us!  Even better, she pulled it all together in one week!  With mad graphic design skills, a huge creative flair, and an all-nighter, Amanda thought of everything to make this party one that will BOWL you over!


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!
