The kids’ table might be the best seat in the house with these cute ideas for Easter! I was so happy to be asked to share a few ideas with Dawn, of The Nashville Mom, recently. We chatted live on Instagram (you can see the replay on The Nashville Mom’s IGTV).  I hope you find a few resources and ideas that you can use for this Easter or for birthday parties and celebrations to come!

Children bring so much spirit to the table and they will absolutely love seeing the table set just for them. I like to delight them with small flower arrangements that are low and filled with bright, happy flowers. I bought 2 packs of tulips and a pack of chamomile from Trader Joes to make these 4 vase arrangements. I added pink bunny balloons to each flower arrangement for a whimsical and very un-stuffy feel for the table. I like for my little guests to feel right at home, too!

For the center, focal point, I put a vase of chamomile in a pastel pink basket and then elevated the basket on a cake stand to give it the right height. I added the prettiest chinoiserie eggs that were hand drawn by Marcie at Made by Mollie’s Mom. I love how the blue is a perfect contrast to the flowers on the table. What a sweet gift, Marcie- thank you!!

I also used baskets as part of the place settings. They are perfect to use to hold the food that will be served to the kids. I suggest a simple picnic style lunch for the kiddos. You could serve sandwiches, lettuce wraps, carrots and celery with hummus, veggie chips, fruit, and a small dessert. I would choose 3-4 items and have them ready to put in the baskets when it is time for lunch to be served. You can see more ideas  in the IGTV video that is saved at The Nashville Mom. It was a treat to get to share ideas with Dawn, and I look forward to doing it again, soon!

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!


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!
