What little boy doesn’t love robots?  Add in some gears and lots of sweets, and you have a party.  This party features 2 giant handmade robots from boxes (one is a pinata!) and an amazing robot cake that takes the spotlight on the table!

These invitations were made using metal CD cases and lots of colors!

Check out the backdrop here: galvanized sheet metal!

Who wouldn’t be mesmerized by this fantastic robot cake?  And all those sweets?  Heaven for those who LOVE sweets!

I am crazy about these cute silver favor boxes that Carol decorated to make them look like robots!  They are adorable!


Carol also turned the napkin holder into a robot- and the utensil holder!  So clever and creative!

Robot heads were even printed on the napkins!

The robots made of boxes are great decorations~

The birthday boy has one creative mama!  Happy Birthday- what a fabulous party, Carol!  Thank you for sharing it with us!!

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!”. 


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!
