Everyone loves to express themselves and EMOJIs make it more fun than ever! These birthday party ideas, with Emojis as the theme, appeal to such a wide range of ages.  I know it is often difficult to find a theme for older kids (tweens and teens), and so this party by Lillian Hope Designs is a perfect way to celebrate with something everyone can agree on…who can deny the charm of these little yellow faces with heart eyes and cute smiles? I also love the fact that they translate so well into fun desserts and treats!  These Emoji Cookies are just the best!

Lillian Hope Designs got very creative with the signs and other paper products that she designed for the party! Did you notice how all of the buffet signs have a hashtag with the label?  I am sure the kids love that little detail! And, the cupcake toppers make the vanilla cupcakes pop with personality! 

Lillian Hope Designs was also so creative incorporating sprinkles in vanilla ice cream cups to add such a customized and festive touch to store-bought treats! So smart!

And, then she made Emoji Bark! I just love it!  So adorable and absolutely fun for the guests- not to mention efficient and affordable for the hostess!  I think this will be a fun activity for my kids to make this summer!

And, Emoji Juice is the cutest choice- all dressed-up in clear bottles with black and white straws and twine!  Add the fun straw flags for the finishing touch…

Lillian Hope Designs shows you how she put it all together on one dessert table in the photo below..she added a party banner and a bouquet of Emoji balloons to make it all complete!

The adorable Emoji faces make for a really funny photo booth session- I also love the addition of yellow sunglasses and heart shapes on the lenses.  Too cute!

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.
