Saving the day with this fabulous birthday party for her son, Nikki Berry of Nikkiikkin, makes capes fly with this super-cool display of creative desserts and activities!  I’m pretty sure Nikki should open her own bakery with talent like this…enjoy her son’s big day and all of Nikki’s unique touches!

Here, Nikki describes the highlights of and inspirations for the party…

“My son Hudson turned three in February and his favorite toys of the moment are super heros, he enjoys watching vintage cartoons so I decided to build up a theme that was more Pop Art – General Super Hero rather than a licensed character.  I ran across a Roy Lichtenstein Newsweek cover from 1966 that set my inspiration for the dynamic tone for the decorations.   I mimicked that artwork for my 3D backdrop and worked with Anna Jayne Prints to create Super Hudson invite and printables.  The cake, cookies and cupcakes were all made by me.  I used Economy Candy for all the candy.  The super hero secret identity kit is an original idea that my 10 year old daughter, Macy, helped me come up with.  We repurposed kid size Real 3D movie glasses (purchased from ebay), I designed the ID card and graphics for the “Bureau of Superheroes Department of Justice”  The kit also included emergency power balls (six lets) and a felt disguise mustache.  The popcorn cups are modeled after mini fry cups and the invisibility drink bottles are recycled coffee bottles.  Serving dinner to the guests was so easy, we special ordered a 6 foot “hero” sandwich from a local deli.

I love the capes and masks hanging up and waiting for their super heroes…

POP! Corn was served…

As well as anti-kryptonite~

And Invisibility Potion…

I love the ID kits that Nikki made!

The Hero Sandwiches were the perfect choice for all of the hungry heroes~

And the party favors were made my Nikki, too!

What a great party!

Nikki definitely captured the full super hero effect!  Well done!

Thank you for sharing the party, Nikki!

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! 


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!

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!
