I always love seeing how Nikka, of Triple M Good Parties, celebrates her children’s birthdays!  This Berry Bash for 2-year-old Miles is adorable.  A berry theme is perfect for a family-style, backyard, get-together… complete with hot dogs and hamburgers, it has a fabulous picnic feel to it.  And, I LOVE it that it is a berry party designed for a BOY!  

The chalkboard sign is the cutest way to add a little hand-drawn charm to the party- it just feels festive and welcoming!

I’m crazy about the little strawberry “Smash Cake” just for Miles!  A tradition that is usually reserved for the first birthday, I think it is fabulous that Nikka continued it for the 2nd birthday, too!  That little balloon on top is just perfect!

I am loving how everything is painted red… chalkboard stand, chairs, and frame!

Boatloads of berries balanced out the yummy desserts and added a healthy little kick to the party!

Those pie pops look amazing, and blueberry shortcake?  YUM!

The blueberry shortcake looks delicious and rustic- and ready to eat!

The cookies are just gorgeous, too!

One of my favorite parts about this party- the cute little mason jar boxes and strawberry boxes!

Nikka even had Mason Jar Lollipops made for the party (and notice the sweet little Miles banner made of jars)!


The Mason Jars were carried through on the invitation, too…

Here’s the sweet Lemonade Stand!  Great way to ‘reuse.’

Even the hamburgers and hotdogs looked fabulous!

These hamburger cake pops are amazing!  They look like real mini burgers.

What a great party, Nikka!  You show how a berry theme is perfect for a little boy and a sweet way to celebrate being two!  Thank you for sharing!!

Any chance I get, I love to share what my friends at Anders Ruff Designs are doing!  Maureen and Adria are ALWAYS up to something creative!  And so, I bring you another fabulous party design and graphic design by Anders-Ruff!  They were kind enough to share their thoughts on what makes a wonderful Thanksgiving table.  Their eye for using natural elements and incorporating their fantastic paper designs makes the celebration warm and cozy!



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!”. 

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.
