When your Birthday Boy loves horses, why not throw a fabulous, fun, and fresh Horse Party…Derby-style!  Mandy Richardson, of When & Where Invites, hosted this adorable Derby Party for her son and she filled it with details that are just perfect for any horse-loving little boy or girl!  I am really loving the bright red and blue!

There were lots of delicious Derby-inspired treats for the guests to enjoy~ cookies with horses and trophies were definitely all winners!

Mandy dipped Oreos and displayed them on a stick~ easy and cute!

Mandy also made the cake- she claims the cake was not her strong suit, but I think she did a great job!

One of my favorite little sweets that Mandy served… Junior Mint Juleps- how clever!

“Unbridled Cupcakes” were also part of the dessert table~

Horses were the “mane” attraction for the centerpiece displays~

 

But, here is the MAIN attraction of the day!  The Birthday Boy coloring his horse to make stick ponies!

What a fabulous way to celebrate your little man!  A party for the winner’s circle, Mandy- thank you for sharing!

Favor bags filled with fun Derby-theme items!

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!”. 

FIESTA!

I love Cinco de Mayo each year because it means dinner is a no-brainer and everyone is happy!  My kids can’t wait to dive in…
