This party from Anders Ruff is frosty and fabulous!  It is just perfect for celebrating a winter birthday for a special little someone.  Full of snowy whites, chilly, bright blues, evergreens, and festive reds- this party packs a brilliant punch of design perfection!

I love the pinecones painted with blue and displayed in the snowy cupcakes-

There is nothing more beautiful than seeing a red bird in winter- a perfect pop of color from nature.  The red birds at this party add just the right touch for festive fun!

The cute evergreen trees made from meringue and chocolate mousse cups are topped with red birds, too~

I love how Anders Ruff used mailbox numbers painted blue to incorporate the birthday girl’s new number!

And, those cute little birds keep hopping through the wintry scene- they (along with the mint swizzle stick) add a great flair to the non-alcoholic martinis on the dessert table!

Another touch that is spot-on is the cake display- the white-washed birch tree slices couldn’t be more fitting for holding the cake.  And, the homemade chocolate trees that surround the cake are lovely!

Snowflake cookies are packed in snow- white Sixlets…

Beautiful snow-capped trees on cookies…

Any chance I get, I love to share what my friends at Anders Ruff Designs are doing!  Maureen and Adria are ALWAYS up to something creative!  And so, I bring you another fabulous party design and graphic design by Anders-Ruff!  They were kind enough to share their thoughts on what makes a wonderful Thanksgiving table.  Their eye for using natural elements and incorporating their fantastic paper designs makes the celebration warm and cozy!



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!
