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!”.
