There is something special about dressing up and dishing out desserts for the kiddos for Valentine’s Day!  Shaundra, of Cherished Affairs, shares a beautiful dessert table with us that she styled for a Valentine photography party.  Desserts were served while each guest had their fashion photo shoot with fabulous photographer Danielle McCann.  Perfect to adapt for teens and tweens and also for a grown-up girls-night-out or daytime luncheon, this party is fashionable and fun!

Simple chocolate mousse (or pudding) is taken to a new level when served in a fancy glass and topped with strawberries and shaved coconut.

Shaundra also found a miniature dresser that she painted and used as a display…

Gorgeous cookies, macarons and pastries displayed on a tiered stand add a fancy touch to the dessert table, too!

Shaunda had matching cake pops in red and gold…

A creative cake combines fashion and dessert in one!

Shaundra also served lunch for the guests…chicken salad, a variety of muffins, fruit and cheese.  She kept it simple and presented it beautifully!  I especially love the fruit and cheese displays.

 

What lovely party styling ideas!  Presentation is such a fun part of designing a party, and Shaundra shares great ideas for making your next party even more beautiful!

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! 

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!
