Cinco en mayo — A Cinco de Mayo Birthday Party for Kids

Hola! My son has a May Day birthday, but rather than maypoles and flowers, I thought it would be really fun to have a Cinco de Mayo party for him, especially when he turned five. I called it a Cinco en Mayo party, because that means “5 in May!” Yes, I admit this theme was […]

Princesses and Pumpkins — A Cinderella Birthday

With Disney’s new Cinderella movie on DVD, and pumpkins popping up in markets everywhere, I couldn’t wait any longer to show you the over-the-top birthday party I threw for my daughter last fall inspired by that fairy tale. It may very well be the most over-the-top birthday party I have thrown to date. I told […]

Sparkle Birthday with free printable poster

This is a picture of New Year’s Eve. No, that’s her name. She was born on New Year’s Day, her name is Even, and I had the opportunity to celebrate her birthday with her this year. It was a bright and sparkly event–as a bubbly 5-year-old girl’s birthday should be. I was happy to help […]

Superhero Birthday for Kids

Everybody loves Superheros, right? Chances are you are going to be involved in some sort of superhero celebration at some point in your life, if you haven’t already. My son turned 4 at a rather inconvenient time for us. I was just returning from SNAP! conference, I am great-with-child, and on top of it all […]

Earth Day Birthday Party

I have a daughter whose birthday happens to be the same day as Earth Day! That hasn’t stopped us from throwing all kinds of different themed birthday parties in the past. But last year we decided to embrace the holiday and make it an Earth Day Birthday Bash! Even if you don’t have an Earth […]

Frozen Birthday Party

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 […]

How to make a 3D Train Cake

I had a request for more details about the 3D cake I made for my son’s 2-year-old Train Birthday Party last year. I should clarify before I start, that I am not a trained baker (wait until I show you his 3-year-old birthday cake fail). I just get big ideas for my kids’ cakes and […]

Vintage Wedding Blush and Gold

Summer means wedding season! And since we started the summer off with a wedding, it means I haven’t had a many lazy days of summer, yet. But it was so fun to help my niece Mellissa on her special day!  I was sort of the florist, day-of wedding coordinator, and day-of photographer all in one! […]

Fishing Father’s Day

I have posted several fun Father’s Day ideas on the blog over the years. I think it is because men are a bit like big kids and it is easy to pick one of their hobbies or interests and create a whole theme around it. Last year, we celebrated my husband’s love of fishing with […]
