Another year and another super sweet party for Amy of A Dazzle Day‘s daughter Mia.  Amy is always so creative and uses all sorts or craft elements ~ lace, ribbons, glitters, yarns, fur and tulle.  It is always a such a treat to see what she pulls together for her kids birthday parties!


Amy put together a really great tutorial on her blog on how to make that adorable yarn ball number sign.  Click here for the step by step tutorial!

Dreamy Woodland Fairy Party

garden fairy blog post-p001

I had the pleasure of once again working with Amy of A Dazzle Day.  Her attention to detail and many DIY party decorations really makes her stand out as a fabulous party stylist!  We worked closely together to create this dreamy lavender and mint woodland fairy party package that came alive for her daughter Mia’s second birthday.  It is equally as beautiful as her Princess Safari Party that she styled for Mia’s first birthday, found here!  This gorgeous party was featured on Hostess with the Mostess, here.

These adorable toadstool seat covers were handmade by Amy and she was so kind as to put together a tutorial for all those interested.  This tutorial and following DIY projects for this party were all featured on Hostess with the Mostess along with the party itself!  These seat covers are an easy sewing project and totally affordable, click here for the step by step instructions!


From fairy wands, custom clay ornaments, wooden peg fairy doll and hand stamped muslin purses, these little fairy guests were made to feel very special in Mia’s enchanted garden!

Vintage Lace Cowgirl Party

cowgirl cover-p001 Yee Haw! This party was designed and styled for my niece Mia’s 4th birthday.  Our inspiration was vintage lace and some good ol’ sweet southern charm.  All things girly and oh course, pink were welcome for this sweet lil cowgirl shindig!

submission (1) submission (3)

The pink ombre cake was a new learning experience for my sister and me.  We baked three layers of cake and added more food coloring with each layer.  At first, I thought we could achieve the look the natural way by using pureed strawberries, but we soon realized that we would have to crack open the dye.  The rosette frosting, although not perfect, I think it adds to that sweet ‘handmade by mommy’ look.  Please note, you will be needing lots of frosting if you want to create those pretty rosettes!

These gorgeous hand iced lace sugar cookies were created by the fabulously talented Evon, of Cookievonster.  She always amazes me with her fabulous talent!

I have come to love spray paint after styling this party. We purchased the little horse figurines at the dollar store and decided to make them gold along with some buttons so to add a shine to the dessert table. One gold horse was used for the cake topper to our pink ombre cake.

We wanted this the backdrop to be sweet and whimsical so we opted to create it of ribbon and lace. submission (5)

So many lovely details worked together to create our rustic, yet modern cowgirl party; lace doilies, natural burlap, velvet, satin and leather ribbons.  But, the sweetest of all was the little cowgirl princess.  Happy Birthday beautiful!

Aloha Hawaiian Luau Party

luau blog post-p001In thinking about posting my niece’s 4th Vintage Cowgirl Birthday party that happened last month, I remembered that I hadn’t yet posted her 3rd Birthday Hawaiian Luau.  Custom designed with my spunky and adorable Mia in mind, the collection is bright and happy and the hibiscus flower as the main design!

luau 1

We assembled the grass cake skirt and it set the tone for the luau candy table.  We hot glue gunned the raffia grass skirt, ribbon and pom poms to a dark wood charger.  It was then placed on a high cake stand…fun and cute!

luau 2 luau 3

Bright and colourful candy kabobs were a quick favourite!  I recommend making these the day of and laying them flat until your guests arrive as the candy will fall the longer gravity has its way!  Also in hindsight, I would use extra long lollipop sticks because they are safer for the kids to be walking around with.

luau 11 luau 12

Birthday girl Mia, welcomed each of her guests with a a friendly ‘aloha’ and a festive lei.  She also send them home with a ‘mahalo’ treat bag to fill with all the party sweets!

luau 22 luau 16luau 15 luau 14

The beautiful cookies were created by Tara of Bambella Cookie Boutique.

A fun activity was the Postcard Photo booth, where the kids could dress up and play with the many props provided.

Princess Safari Party

safari blog post-p001Well, a few months ago, I had a custom request to create a mod safari package in pastel colors.  The very sweet and talented photographer, Amy of A Dazzle Day, was looking to create a special first birthday theme for her daughter, Mia and wow! she definitely did not disappoint!  This party is full of so many whimsical and sweet details, I barely know where to begin, but begin I will…

mia safari24 mia safari36

She designed and created the felt birthday hat, but she also cleverly embellished the patterned party hats created for the package.  It is amazing what simple tissue paper can do to spice up a party hat. Note to self…must try this out!

mia safari32 mia safari31 mia safari23

The party tables were full of so many vintage details, this favor table is just so sweet and ecclectic…lace, burlap, rik rak ribbon, all work together so nicely.

mia safari19 mia safari18 mia safari15 mia safari9 mia safari8 mia safari5

Amy designed and handmade all the felt animals and party hat.

Side note: I have used these lollipops at parties I have thrown and you can find them at Micheal’s.  The thank you stickers and ribbon actually come with the lollipops and make for great and affordable party favors!

How adorable, it really is a beautiful party, but there is much more cuteness to come…

I just love those leg warmers and the colorful tutu!

mia safari58 mia safari59 mia safari60 mia safari61

Amy layered the water bottle wrapper with a lace doily, which makes for a vintage look.  I can tell she used a glass Starbucks frappuccino bottle.  Washed and cleaned, they are a great size for the kids birthday parties!  These adorable polka dot straws can be purchased from many sellers on Etsy and really add so much to the look.

mia safari54 mia safari57 mia safari56

The cupcake toppers are backed with coordinating tissue rosettes.  The are very simple to make and I plan to post a tutorial on how to create them sometime in the near future.  Amy used the cupcake wrappers provided in the party package and I think they add are really nice finishing touch!

mia safari45 mia safari44 mia safari43

Just when I thought this momma couldn’t be more talented, I find out she actually made these adorable cookies too.  I am very impressed as I have tried my hand at decorating sugar cookies and it does take a fair bit of skill. Very cute!

mia safari49 mia safari48 mia safari37

Thank you so much for sharing your birthday girl’s very special day with us.  Simply adorable and so much love and care put into each and every detail!

Happy celebrating!

Donut Shoppe Party

donut blog post-p001

So in my opinion, the next best sweet to cake has to be those fluffy, glazed pieces of dough we call donuts.  Therefore, when I was asked to create a donut shoppe themed party package, I was on board! 


This talented party momma made the adorable clothespin cake topper…so cute!  Perhaps I will be contacting her for my boys next birthday party…


It’s a modern classic donut shoppe theme design with a pink, turquoise and red color scheme, with a little yellow in for some fun!  I really like how she used both the 2″ circle paper punch and the 2″ flourish punch which gives that pretty scroll edging.


How cute are the bags of donut seeds? Using food labels, she easily created candy bag toppers.


Thanks so much for sharing Alejandra and happy birthday to your sweet lil donut! All the very best!!
