Wow, wow, wow!  This little girl’s first birthday was quite a celebration!  Cute as a button and “sew, sew” amazing, this party was planned by The Event Studios and Marie Claire de Leon!  The decorations are fabulous inspiration for a sewing party for older children or a Lalaloopsy party for the younger set!  Enjoy all of the details- there are so many adorable ideas!

 The sweets table was truly a treat!  It was loaded with gorgeous “sewing-themed” cupcakes and cake pops!

The detail on each cupcake topper is stunning…

The Spool Cake Pops are such a cute detail~

And cake pops with sprinkles….topped with buttons, of course!

Cookies made to look like buttons- all in pastel colors…

And, chocolate bars (with customize wrappers) served on a mini suitcase couldn’t look any cuter!

The fabulous cake rounds out the desserts!

I am crazy about these adorable hats that were hand-made and customized for each guest!  The yard and buttons on top are too cute!!

The table centerpieces are another one of my favorite design details.  I just love how each table has such a great mix of sewing and flowers- it is beautiful and can be recreated with your own twist to make it work for your party!

 Each table is different but includes the same elements~ and that makes it even more unique!

The mix of flowers with yarn is pretty brilliant~

Have a look at the paper plate button garlands that were used to decorate the ceiling!

I am always a big fan of having the birthday child’s name displayed prominently at their party- this display is creative, cool, and unique!  And, notice more hand-made paper button plates!

Table numbers were made from thread cards- what a great idea!

Feeling SEW THRISTY??  The drink table was super-cute, too!  I love a little clever and witty play-on-words to make everyone smile~

Gumball party favors for everyone- I always love these little gumball machines, and so do kids!!

Party favor tags were made to look like buttons~

This party was just fabulous…

To capture photo memories of the guests, Anika’s mom, Marie Claire, made this Instagram photobooth- I love how it looks great and is also captures a bit of pop culture that the family will enjoy looking back on through the years!

And, Anika definitely is as cute as a button!

Thank you so much for sharing your daughter’s party, Marie Claire!   What a lot of effort and love- it was a beautiful celebration for your beautiful little girl!

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.
