One of the most wonderful parts of this Wintry Sugar Plum Fairy Party is the fresh take on color!  How beautiful to mix snowflakes with glittery gold… and soft, sweet pinks and greens!  Shauna, of Cupcake with Character, designed this dazzling party that will delight you no matter what the season!  Ideas perfectly suited for fairies, ballerinas, and princesses…enjoy!

The soft, pastel colors are so pretty and dainty.  They work beautifully in this winter party and would be equally as gorgeous in a spring-time fairy party!

Chocolate-covered Oreos with snowflakes…and mint green marshmallows with gold dots (marshmallows are dipped in candy melts to get the color)…

I love how pretty the cake pops are in edible gold glitter dust!


Cupcake wrappers add a beautiful design element to the elegance of the party!

I love the tiny bottles of strawberry milk for all of the little fairies!

Lovely trees were chosen for the cookies~ perfect for Sugar Plum Fairies!  The cookies can be adapted to fit any time of the year to fit woodland fairies or any fairy of your choice!

Creme Brulee also looked and tasted lovely for the party~ such a classic dessert that can be dressed up in the prettiest ways!

Gorgeous favor bags and adorable cups were waiting for the guests~

I love how Shauna used tulle throughout the party, too!  A perfect touch!

How sweet!  Thank you for sharing these fabulous ideas, Cupcake With Character!  I love how the inspiration works well for winter and spring and right into summer!  Beautiful!

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.
