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~

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!”. 

LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE PARTY

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!
