Frozen Birthday Party

Frozen Birthday Party decorations

Since I posted my Disney’s FROZEN-themed winter party on the blog in December, it has quickly become one of my most pinned posts on Pinterest! I predicted that it would be the hot–or should I say “cool”–choice of birthday party themes for all of the little princesses out there and I was right! Last weekend […]

Under the Sea Mermaid Birthday Party

A couple of weeks ago I go a call from my neighbor on a Wednesday night. She was wondering if I had any ideas for her daughter’s birthday party THAT SATURDAY! She had sent out an evite weeks before, but hadn’t gotten around to any party planning yet. Of course, I had ideas–it’s My Insanity–I […]

County Fair 5th Birthday Party

County Fair-3979

We’re still celebrating 5 years of insanity here on the blog. And while you are linking up your great parties to the Party Party, I thought I should show you one of the big parties I threw last year–and then got too busy to blog about. There is a lot that I loved about this […]

There were a few extra special goodies and favors at the book party. What book worm wouldn’t want their own little bag of bookworms to munch on, while indulging in their favorite page-turner? These were displayed in a bowl on the bookshelf, for the children to grab and enjoy either during the party or to […]

Book Club Birthday–Prologue

book party-31

I am so excited to give you a peak at the book “bash” we had this weekend, in honor of my daughter’s 11th birthday! My daughter is a voracious reader and hasn’t met many books she doesn’t like. It seemed like the perfect theme for my daughter and her bookworm friends. As you may have […]

3D Roller Skate and Disco Ball Cake

  I don’t really have time today for a lengthy tutorial or explanation, but since I was foolish enough post an incriminating picture of the havoc this cake wreaked on my kitchen, I thought I ought to show you the finished product. This was for my neighbor’s 10th birthday, which happens to be her Golden birthday! Her […]

A Tangled Celebration

Tangled birthday girls

My daughter (who has a thing for hair) was heart-set on a Rapunzel birthday. Using some great internet resources, a bit of imagination, and a lot of friends and family, we threw a Tangled adventure for the birthday girl and her friends. Where to begin? How about with my little Rapunzel herself and the gorgeous […]
