Snowflakes shimmer and frosty colors pop in this fantastic first birthday party!  A ONEderland of snow and sweets, and complete with cozy sweaters and warm wishes… this party is designed by Kristin of Paige Simple Studios.  This is one wintry mix that everyone would welcome!

I love the gorgeous snowflake cookies that hang from the tree branches!  What a great centerpiece!

Frosty bottles of milk and cozy coozies with cocoa await the party guests! 

I just love the cable sweaters on the cocoa!

Kristin served so many yummy treats~ like these giant marshmallows dipped in chocolate and covered in sprinkles!

Cupcakes with adorable snowflake toppers…

I always love Rice Krispie Treats dipped in chocolate for a really great party treat that is easy and so cute!

Simple wafer cookies dipped in snowy white chocolate~

Containers “to go” are always a great idea for dessert tables so that your guests can enjoy and/or share the treats after the party!

Kristin added gumball favors for the older guests~

And, smaller ones for the younger guests…

Such a wonderful way to celebrate a winter birthday!  Thank you for sharing your party ideas, Kristin!

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. 


This party is the sweetest of the sweet!  Shauna Krantz, of Cupcake with Character, hosted this bright and adorable party for her daughter’s birthday!  I love the whimsical colors and the fabulous sweets~ this party pops with all things cute and sweet!  Join us at the Sweet Shoppe and enjoy every sweet detail!
