I planned this party
for my daughter Annie’s second birthday. We are always calling her
Sweet Annie” so how perfect was a “Sweet Shoppe Party!”. 

I wanted bright colors to represent Annie’s colorful personality!
Every aspect of this party came together to create a super special
day. The colors and design of the party was based on Hello Love Too’s
clip art. I had Kelli of Print and Cut Your Printables cut out the
clip art for the tags, lemonade, and garland. 

Autumn, of Autumn Lynn’s Chocolate Sins created some adorable (super
yummy!) bubble gum machine cake pops. The kids absolutely enjoyed
them. Nicole of Sweet U Off Your Feet made some colorful rice krispie
treats. Delish!

Christina of 4 Kids Cakes created the most amazing fondant toppers to
match the clip art!! They were so cute!

Hakima of Kima’s Konfection created some extra special fondant
toppers. The ice cream cones, the larger gumball machine topper and
the various candy toppers. 

The glittered candy cupcake toppers added such a sparkle to the
cupcake display. A huge thank you to Made By A Princess! 

Tonya of Soiree Event Design custom made cotton candy favors to
coordinate with the theme! The kids really enjoyed these. What a great
addition to any party favor. The best part, she’ll personalize them
for your event! 

I special ordered the glittered cake stand and candy jar form Nikka of
Triple M Good Parties. If you want anything glittered up, Nikka’s your
go to gal! 

Lauren of Ten23Designs custom made the super “sweet” wood cut out
along with a personalized “Annie” cut out for the birthday girls
chair. I painted them pink and added some cute ribbon for the party.
They are the best quality and I highly recommend these for your

Kimberley’s Kitchen has the best, gourmet marshmallows you will find
around. They are delicious and perfect as is or mixed in with their
s’mores kits! Order early! She is in Canada. 

Vista of Dolce Vista Cakes created Annie’s birthday cake. I wanted the
cake to match the clip art cake from Hello Love Too. Not only was the
cake beautiful, it tasted divine! 

The kids loved the Oreo pops on a stick from Sweets and Treats Design
Studio. They looked yummy and were just as yummy to eat! 

The printables my Small Moments were just perfect. Fun, bright and
perfect for any little girl or even boy party! I loved the welcome
sign on the door to greet the little guests as well as the stickers I
placed on tags and used for envelope seals. 

Christy of Pretty My Party sent over some wooden forks and spoons to
coordinate with the party decor. Perfect for kid tables! 

Katie of The Pretty Party Shop, always has the best selection of party
supplies. I loved the addition of her rainbow straws, paper favor
bags, orange twine and adorable baking cups. The products arrive
quickly and are packaged to perfection. 

Elizabeth of I have A Favor made the cutest favor tins and
personalized cup for Annie! Each child had a favor tin with their
name, filled with goodies. The personalization adds an extra special
touch. They can even be used later as a cute pencil jar! 

Katie, our photographer, really captures every party we do. Katie’s
beautiful photos bring to life the hard work that goes into a party
and the products.

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. 

CAMILLE’S CLUBHOUSE ~ Confectionery, Soda Shoppe, Spa

My daughter had lots of ideas of what she wanted to do to celebrate her 10th birthday!  She wanted to have lots of cookies~ and have a soda shoppe ~ and set up a spa for nail painting!  With so many ideas, I knew we should come up with something that would tie it all together.  And, that is how Camille’s Clubhouse became the theme- the Clubhouse is where you can find lots of her favorite things!  We sent invitations with a an insert that had a “password” that had to be unscrambled and brought to the party for “entry”.  That was an easy way to get the guests involved before the party even started!
