The Wizard of Oz theme is one of my favorite birthday party ideas, and this party by Serena, of Mammarella’s Sweets and Treats is fabulous!  Serena designed the dessert table for two little girls, Mia and Ava.  The table was filled with gorgeous sweets that depicted the characters and scenery~ from the yellow brick road to the shimmering Emerald City, to the beautiful rainbow in the sky!  Come on! Follow the yellow brick road to see all of the wonderful ideas!

 I really, really love the small cakes that were on each side of the large cake!  The yellow, brick road looks lovely wth red flowers around it!  So cute and dainty!  I also love all of the details that went into the show-stopping main cake~ take a close look at each tier and all of the details…from the Emerald City to the Ruby Red Slippers!

The blue and white gingham is also one of my favorites!  The mini baskets of gumballs are adorable!

The rainbow was depicted with a Jell-O rainbow served in individual cups…

Ruby Red Cake Pops and Yellow Brick Road cake Pops were also a big hit!  I love how they were served in faux grass and beside Toto!


And, Rainbow Cake Pops were served upside down for the perfect way to add in the colors of the rainbow!

Rice Krispie Treats drizzled in white chocolate and served on a paper straw “stick” add to the colorful fun of the table!

A big stack of beautifully-decorated sugar cookies waited on the guests, too!  How fun to see the different cookies that were made to represent each of the parts of the story!

Chocolate-covered Oreos were also a part of the dessert table~

And, Serena added a little bit of humor to the dessert table…the Wicked Witch could only hope for a nibble from this table!

What a fabulous Dessert Table from Mammarella’s Sweets and Treats!  Serena, you did a remarkable job for your birthday girl!  Thank you so much for sharing it with us!  I am thrilled to show-off your creativity!

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! 


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!”. 

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. 


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!
