The perfect beach breeze makes for a perfect day to go fly a kite…which also makes for perfect birthday party ideas from Tiffany Fox, of Fizzy Party!  Tiffany was inspired by the Octopus Kites that are flown at Lincoln City, Oregon- and so the entire party is designed around these colorful and fabulous octopus kites!  Read on for more great ideas on hosting a party beachside…no matter what kite shape you choose!

I love the gorgeous tablecloth that Fizzy Party chose!  Ocean blue with a little bit of mermaid thrown in!

Fizzy Party kept the food simple- which is always easiest when eating outdoors and when transporting the party to a location away from your home~


I love the gummy octopus candy that Tiffany found- how perfect!

Serve food in covered containers that are customized for the party~

And, customized water bottle labels are always a fun part of a party~ they always add a special touch!

And, don’t forget the sunscreen!  Tiffany displayed it in a beach bucket with sand and shells- what a cute way to be sure everyone is ready for a day on the beach!

Tiffany also included Mason Jars with a kite on each jar (look closely to see this cute detail)…

The beach on the Oregon coast is beautiful!  I love the amazing view- what a fabuous place for a party!

Here is a photo of the kites that inspired Fizzy Party’s theme…

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!”. 


This party is the sweetest of the sweet!  Shauna Krantz, of Cupcake with Character, hosted this bright and adorable party for her daughter’s birthday!  I love the whimsical colors and the fabulous sweets~ this party pops with all things cute and sweet!  Join us at the Sweet Shoppe and enjoy every sweet detail!


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!
