For my daughter’s 10th birthday party this year, we had a little bit of this and a little bit of that!  I have to say, turning 10 marks a special time- the excitement of a decade and double-digits for the birthday girl and a lot of nostalgia for the parents!  I can’t tell you how many times one of us has said, “I cannot believe our little girl is 10!” TEN!  So, we invited a few friends over to celebrate in “Camille’s Clubhouse”- and in her Clubhouse we incorporated her wishes for her birthday party…here is the first part of her party photos.  Camille’s Confectionery!   Enjoy!

I divided the party into three different sections in our home.  There was the sweet shoppe that we called “Camille’s Confectionery”.  In the Confectionery, there were lots of the birthday girl’s favorite sweets~

These little beauties were made by MimiCafe Union NY~ they were fondant toppers made for our miniature pudding parfaits…

I found the tiny, green, depression-glass dessert serving pieces at a local antique shop.  They were just the right size for a small serving and looked beautiful with the toppers!

We had loads of beautiful sugar cookies that were decorated by My Little Bakery, Sweet Goosie Girl, and Better Bit of Butter…

And… beautiful and really fun cakes by Kathi at My Sweet Things!

We had a chocolate cake with pastel cookie “dots” and a pastel ruffled cake with fabulous ice cream sundaes made of fondant.  The fondant toppers are from Brenda at Sugar High, Inc. and they were amazing!!

The chocolate cake was topped off with a cake banner from Loralee Lewis~

I love the stacked cookies by Better Bit of Butter- they are always a favorite!

These number 10 cookies were gorgeous- My Little Bakery decorated a 1 and a 0 and I tied them together with sheer ribbon…

And fabulous birthday cake cookies!  

Sweet swirled candy cookies were also a big hit!  The sparkling sugar crystals made these cookies lots of fun!

And, more fabulous, glittery cookies by Sweet Goosie Girl were truly a perfect 10!

Some of my daughter’s favorite candies…

My daughter loves kitties and so I wanted to have a cute kitten as part of her Confectionery~ MimiCafe Union NY delivered!  Originally, Camille asked if we could have cake pops at her party but then also asked for doughnut holes.  And, so we went with doughnut holes decorated with these adorable little kittens!

These were some of my favorite little additions to the sweets!  I loved it that Camille could “make” these by inserting the straw and then adding the kitties with a little dot of frosting…

The guests were able to go through Camille’s Confectionery, pick out their favorite choices, and put them in their baskets to take home and enjoy…

For the baskets, I ordered wooden baskets from Save On Crafts and then the kids and I painted them to match the party colors~

This photo makes me laugh a little, because the table looks a little off-kilter and bumped around- but it gives you a general idea of how the table was set-up~

Check back soon for the next round of photos from the party~ The Soda Shoppe…!

 

I love showing the talents of these fabulous ladies and their amazing ways with sweets!  Thank you to all of you who helped make Camille’s Confectionery a culinary treat for all of us!  We LOVE it and are grateful for you!

CAMILLE’S CLUBHOUSE ~ Confectionery, Soda Shoppe, Spa

My daughter had lots of ideas of what she wanted to do to celebrate her 10th birthday!  She wanted to have lots of cookies~ and have a soda shoppe ~ and set up a spa for nail painting!  With so many ideas, I knew we should come up with something that would tie it all together.  And, that is how Camille’s Clubhouse became the theme- the Clubhouse is where you can find lots of her favorite things!  We sent invitations with a an insert that had a “password” that had to be unscrambled and brought to the party for “entry”.  That was an easy way to get the guests involved before the party even started!

CAMILLE’S FIESTA ~ MEXICAN THEME BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS

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! 

LILLY PULITZER CAKE DECORATING FLAMINGO BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS

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.
