The very talented Clair, of Calamity Cakes, recently hosted this adorable Teddy Bear Picnic for her daughter’s 6th birthday!  I love any type of picnic party, and this one is super sweet! Clair’s daughter loves teddies, and so this party theme was easy to decide!  With a topsy-turvy cake and loads of sweet treats~ along with fabulous activities and favors, this was definitely a day of fun for everyone!

The cake that Clair designed, baked, and decorated is so cute!  I love how it incorporates a picnic basket, cake, cookies, a honey pot and a teddy bear!!  Wow!

Isn’t it gorgeous?  Here are more details- the cake could have its own post!

Other desserts that Clair made…cupcakes, honey mousse, raspberry Jell-O, trifle, sugar cookies, and candy~

The cupcakes had edible images on top – the images matched the invitations!

The guests had lunch before all of the yummy treats were served.  I love how Clair set the table with white gable boxes on faux grass mats…

Clair had a variety of activities planned for the children~

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!”.
