The best part about an ART PARTY is that it can be anything you CREATE!  Laura, of Eye Candy Event Details, created this fabulous collection of party paper that can be used for so many different celebrations!  She calls this design the CREATE COLLECTION~ and I hope it inspires you to be creative and use the versatile collection for wherever your imagination takes you!  Birthdays, playdates, picnics, school parties, or any time!

Laura found coordinating boxes and cups at Target and used them to mix the bright colors with bright polka dots and stripes!  Laura also make the collection resemble writing on a chalkboard- I love the toppers on the Jell-O and applesauce cups!

Keeping with the chalk theme, Laura also made marshmallow “chalk” to fit inside the cute little boxes that she covered!

You can skewer the mini marshmallows or stick them together with dots of icing or melted white chocolate to make the marshmallow chalk sticks…


 Laura had lunch for each of the children at the picnic~ packaged in the cute gable boxes…

After lunch, there were sweet treats to eat and lots of creative activities for the guests!


Laura made each child a personalized chalkboard and let them creat with real chalk while they enjoyed their marshmallow chalk!

What a fun day and what a great idea to have a party collection that is so versatile!  You can CREATE any type of party you would like with these adorable party designs from Eye Candy Event Details!  Make the activities suit the age level, and get creative! 

Thank you for inspiring us with your ideas, Laura! Such fun for a birthday, a sleepover, an art party, or any type of celebration!

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!”. 

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. 


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!
