This party will make you flutter with excitement!  Nikki, of Tikkido, designed this gorgeous spring butterfly party for her daughter~ and each little detail is perfectly planned!  The cake is stunning with butterflies suspended mid-flight over all of the 200 roses.  Nikki did most everything herself including the photography- she is fabulously talented!!

The entire backyard was designed as a butterfly garden with sheer white drapes and tents.  The dessert table had a host of delicious and beautiful sweets made by Nikki…

I love the dainty butterflies that are on the lemon tarts…

And, these sugar flower pots are just amazing!  Nikki found flower pot molds and planned to do chocolate flower pots, but the day was too hot for chocolate…and so she made them out of sugar!

Nikki says the raspberry squares were her favorite dessert of the day~

Nikki made sure all of the butterflies had fruit, Jell-O nectar, and handmade candy buttons that coordinated with the party colors!

Nikki also made the bright and cheery cookies!

The decorations that Nikki made were also fabulous!  Chandeliers, party hats, buntings, and garlands…just to name a few!  Have a look at some of the many touches Nikki added to the party~

The activities were adorable with everything from customized coloring sheets and crayons to a “chrysalis game” …

What a beautiful party for Nikki’s favorite little “Butterfly”!

And, the lucky guests were treated to flower pots full of fun as a party favor!

I love this party and all of the special touches that Nikki did for her daughter!  Thank you for sharing with us, Nikki!  Be sure to see Nikki’s site for recipes, tutorials, and 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!”. 


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! 

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. 


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!
