Having proper tea in the garden just sounds fun and fancy!  Maggie, of Via Blossom, was thrilled when her daughter wanted to celebrate her birthday in the garden with a tea party with friends!  Read on to hear more about this delightful party from Maggie herself!  I hope you find lots of great birthday party ideas that you can use yourself~ hosting a garden party is a great way to celebrate in the spring, summer, or fall!

I love the gorgeous color of the dessert table display!

Wow, what a lovely set-up and design for a charming tea party!

Here is what Maggie has to say about hosting her daughter’s party…

My daughter's number one wish for her 9th birthday was to have a
sophisticated afternoon tea with her friends. I was ecstatic when 
Gaby told me that she wanted a Tea Party Themed birthday.
 I must say, that a scrumptious Tea Party was at the top
 of my wish list growing up. So, what
a blessing to be able to make my girl’s wish come true.
My mother’s tropical back yard was the perfect setting
 for the occasion. Flowers were an integral part of the décor. 
I juxtaposed different flower patterns in the cupcake stands,
 cupcake wrappers, table runner and banner to create a vintage 
feel. Gaby’s gorgeous aqua bedroom chest became the dessert
table which displayed a “croquembouche” (or tower of 
cream puffs held together with caramel) and mini-desserts
 like brownie pops, sugar cookies in delicate paper flowers
called Petite Blossom Cups, French macarons and of course 
homemade tea. The little guests wore pretty hats and
sat in a long table decorated with teacups and cupcake stands
showcasing delicious Cupcakes. I loved how the vanilla mini
looked in the pink plastic tea cups. All in all, Gaby had a 
lovely afternoon of fun and sophistication with her friends.

What an absolutely lovely day, Maggie and Cristina!  Thank you for sharing these fabulous birthday party ideas with us!

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! 


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!
