Oh, the places you can go with ideas from Dr. Seuss’ inspirational characters! This fabulous twin birthday party celebrates a sister and a brother and gives you lots of birthday party ideas for your own Dr. Seuss party! Anne-Marie from Elianna Noelle Events shares her creative and whimsical approach to incorporating lots of Dr. Seuss books with an emphasis on Thing 1 and Thing 2…which makes perfect sense when celebrating twins!! Enjoy!

I love all of the unique design elements that Anne-Marie used for this party, but I have to admit that these painted marshmallows are my absolute favorite! What a great idea- and so much fun (and unexpected!)~

I also love how perfect the tiny book cupcake toppers are!  They are so sweet and look like you could pick them up and read them…

Anne-Marie describes her ideas for making the party special for each of the birthday children “…

I created the left side for her daughter who was born first and
accentuated Thing 1 with a red hair bow. Thing two was identified by
a turquoise bow tie with all things turquoise on the right side. I
was inspired by the various characters and objects from many of the

The cake is exquisite and the toppers are so adorable with the red hairbow and the blue bow tie!


 Anne-Maire was so creative with the balloon decorations in the room and with the tablescapes…

What a wonderful way to celebrate a party for two!  Thank you for sharing your party ideas, Anne-Marie! This party is loaded with fun and creative ideas!!

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!


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.
