slicing + serving cake

May 13, 2011

Here are some great tips from Real Simple on slicing and serving cake and ice cream.  We know we could use a few helpful hints so we thought we’d post here and share!

We love the tips on cutting a round cake and serving ice cream in cupcake liners!  Happy Friday, everyone.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Time to add another Etsy shop to your favorites. Steph Loves Ben is full of cute homemade party decorations. That happy birthday garland needs to find a permanent residence in my party closet.

real party: circus party

May 11, 2011

Circus has definitely been one of the most popular party themes over the last couple of years and we can see why. With bold colors, stripes and fun foods, how can you go wrong? Sarah threw this sweet big top birthday  for her little one year old son, Chase, and did a fantastic job playing up the fun circus elements and eliminating any of the creepy.  Picnik collage
We love the table of homemade hats!

flip book invitations

May 5, 2011

Heidi designed these genius flip book invitations for her son’s eighth birthday. We’re wondering if the recipients stopped playing with them long enough to actually go to the party.

tissue paper decorations

May 4, 2011

We’re feeling inspired to pull out the tissue paper today to make our home ready for a fiesta with fringe garlands and Mexican paper flowers. Both projects are easy enough for your kids to join in.

real party: superhero parties

May 3, 2011

Since last week we posted a sweet supergirl party we wanted to show some more fun things you could do with a superhero party.  Both of these parties are by the super duper talented Hello Naomi and scissors.paper.cake.   There’s so much inspiration here – just take a look!

We love this joint party for a boy and a girl — perfect color palette!  And the cake!And this is a party from last year but there were so many great details we had to share.

We adore the pops of color with the bold but simple details for both of these parties.   Now we want to throw a superhero party!

cinco de mayo party

May 2, 2011

Happy May!  We can hardly believe its already May (but that means summer is just around the corner!).  Cinco de Mayo is this week and we thought it would be fun to share these goodies from the talented One Charming Party.

We’re loving these mini pinatas.  Great for any party!

See the full tutorial on the One Charming Party blog here.  Happy Cinco de Mayo, everyone!

put a crown on it!

April 29, 2011

We thought this would be a fitting post today – what about a birthday crown instead of a birthday hat?  We think that would make the birthday boy/girl feel pretty special!
