Mrs. Claus has been busy baking up fun for the holidays!  This cute Cookie Shop Party by Lauren, of Capes and Crowns, is loaded with sweet ideas for sharing Christmas confections with friends and family.  Host a cookie swap or celebrate a December birthday with this cute theme!  You can’t go wrong with cookies!!

Little ones love to get their hands on cookies, and so offer several selections or invite your guests to share their favorite recipes by bringing cookies to swap.  You can get creative with decorated sugar cookies- or even dip Oreos in chocolate and decorate (or purchase fondant toppers to use to decorate)!

Cake pops, brownies, and cake bites are always fun to have to add to the excitement of what will be shared at the Cookie Shoppe Swap!

Be sure to have a cold bottle of milk to go with all of those sweets…

I love the toppers on the milk bottles~

And, be sure to have favor boxes handy for the perfect favor at a Cookie Swap!

What a fun and sweet way to celebrate the holidays!  Thank you for sharing your cute ideas, Capes and Crowns!  Merry Christmas to you all!!

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!”. 


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!
