Gorgeous Little Deer Garden Birthday Party

I am seriously swooning over this Gorgeous Little Deer Garden Birthday Party!! Natali Alexander of Serendipity Do styled this amazing party, as well as did some serious crafting (like the 600 feet of bunting — yep, all her!) I would say it definitely all paid off because this backyard is truly transformed. From the strings of bunting and hanging honeycomb balls, to the sweet bow-tied tree & gardening area, you’ll feel transported to a whimsical woodland wonderland (say that 5 times fast) :).

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– White ceramic deer centerpieces with beautiful floral ‘antlers’ + flower planting & pot decorating activity
– Pastel pink cake with mini garlands topper + little deer silhouette topped cupcakes
– Vintage soda pop drinks table, pastel sweets & paper straws + a brunch food hutch with fruit & bagels
– Scalloped invitation with pink stripes & little deer + die-cut banners & heart garlands

DIY Tutorial: Color Blocked Drawstring Favor Bags

I’ve always been a fan of the color-blocked and paint dipped looks, but even more so when they’re EASY to create! These color-blocked favor bags are exactly that… all you need are a few basic craft materials + plain drawstring muslin bags (which I bought here).

This look is versatile enough to work with almost any party theme, but we added the party circles and square favor tags from our Swim Party Collection to customize them for a recent poolside blogger event and a backyard swim party. And for the inside of the bags? Swedish Fish, of course! ;)

New York City Super Hero Squad Birthday Party

When you can’t decide on a specific super hero to focus a party around, why not include a whole squad — more catchphrases to choose from, right? ;) Juliana Vargas‘s son had one requirement for his 3rd birthday: lots of his favorite super heroes. Thus, this fantastic New York City Super Hero Squad Birthday Party was born! There are so many clever touches to check out here, but I’m especially loving the cool city alley style dessert table, telephone booth display case, & those adorable little felt hero dolls dressing up the table place settings (Wonder Woman for me, please!).

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Thor doll “holding up” Thor & Hulk cupcakes + Spiderman & Iron man cake pops
– Custom brick & graffiti backdrop & a personalized newspaper sign + party favor phone booth
– Captain America topped white swirl cake + pop art style cookies & Captain America candy apples
– Iron Man & Spiderman character visit + birthday Iron Man costume

Tonya Coleman here from Soireé Event Design, and I’m back with the “Trend Alert” where I share with you some of the hottest trends in party planning! Today’s guest post is all about the hot new trend — Mermaid Parties! My daughters are heavy into mermaids right now. Riley takes her Barbie Mermaids into the bath with her almost every night, watches the Barbie Pearl Princess DVD almost every day and my older daughter Faith won’t swim without her Fin Fun Mermaid Tail, so when they decided on a Mermaid themed party this summer, I wasn’t surprised. Taking inspiration from the Barbie Pearl Princess dolls and the Mermaid Tails, check out my ideas for our Sparkle Mermaid Party!

When it comes to featured party submissions, one of the biggest issues we see time and time again is poor photo quality. This can be heart-breaking because we know how much time & energy goes into making these parties so beautiful (trust me, we know!), but it’s hard to properly see all that creativity through […]
