The beginning of spring just makes you want to celebrate- and that is exactly what Brandi, of Painted and Sprinkled, did!  Brandi put together this adorable idea for a spring playdate- and it is also perfect for birthday party ideas or garden party ideas!  I love the nod to lady bugs- one of my favorites!  Brandi puts her own spin on it with a unique color palette~ enjoy these beautiful spring party ideas!

Aren’t the cake pops so pretty?  I love the green sprinkles topped with a tiny ladybug!  And, these cakes!

The mini, ombre, naked cakes are spot on trend- and that tiny ladybug crawling off of the plate is adorable!

 The cookies couldn’t be any sweeter…

Spring flowers brighten up any day- and are a perfect way to decorate your tables and party spaces…

Ladybug Rice Krispie Treats were “spot-on”, too!

Along with the place settings and cute drink ideas…

The outdoor porch setting is perfect- and so is the sheer swag that Brandi hung over the table~

What a delightful, spring party!  It looks like the girls had a ball!

Thank you for sharing these darling spring birthday party ideas with us, Brandi!  Your dessert skills are amazing- I love the cake pops that you made for the little ones to enjoy!  Your talent is lots of fun to see- happy spring!!

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.
