My husband and I (Christine of Pure Joy Events) first met in college almost 20 years ago. You know what? I'm even more attracted to him today (alright, he may have been a skinny Engineering student back then, but still). He really is my perfect match in so many ways.
On February 14th, show your Valentine some love with these Matchbox Love Notes.

Yep, you read right. Today's party post brings you not one, but two Alice in Wonderland Tea Parties from some of our sweetest little customers!
The first party comes from sweet Alice and her mom Regina all the way from Brazil!
Regina used our Alice in Wonderland printable cupcake toppers and buffet cards (in Portuguese!) to help decorate the stunning desserts table she created for Alice's 1st Birthday!! How adorable is that?! :)

I (Crissy) have a thing for all vintage things lately! That is why I decided to make this super cute vintage napkin holder for my Valentine's Party.
This idea can also be used for a wedding or a garden party, or a pretty handmade gift or party favor idea!
Happy Chinese or Lunar New Year to you!! It's the year of the dragon, and I'm so excited to share a real stunning Chinese New Year party by one of our cool customers, Gillian from Crumbs of Comfort Cake Design.
I first saw this party on our Facebook page where Gillian posted some of her fabulous party photos, so I naturally asked her if I could share with you guys!
Gillian styled the party herself, and created all the beautiful cakes and oriental desserts for her client's bash, and here's what she had to say about the party and how she got started with her cake decorating business...
One of my resolutions this year is to create simple but totally cute parties that can be easily achieved by anyone with the simple use of some fab party printables!
So the idea of a "Cookies and Milk" Valentine's Day Party seemed really appropriate to showcase Bird's Party latest Sweet printable party collection for Valentine's Day!

Happy New Year everyone! It's Christine from Pure Joy Events.
Today I'll show you how to make the paper globe garland featured in the holiday issue of Bird's Party Magazine - The handcrafted paper globes were used to adorn a Lunar New Year dessert table, but simply switch out the patterned paper, and they make fabulous decorations for any occasion.
Hello and Happy New Year 2012!
This is my first post of 2012 here at Bird's Party. I (Haniela) know we are only in the middle of January but my head is spinning with new exciting ideas for this year - I'm thinking Mother's Day, Summer, and even Fall. I can't wait to share some of my new recipes and baking tips with you as I hope stop by here more frequently. I promise!
Valentine's Day is around the corner and I wanted share with Bird's Party readers a really yummy treat you can make for your friends, dear ones, children or for yourself. I'm a giver so I gave some to my friend's kids and to my Zumba instructor for her kids.
What better way to start the week than with some FREEBIES, right?!
When fabulous Jillian from the AWESOME Catch My Party asked me to create some Valentine's Day Party Printables for their readers, I jumped at the chance!! I LOVE Jillian, her site and her work, so this is a huge honor for me!!

As you probably can tell, this party theme is all about a much loved comic-book superhero but due to copyright issues, I have decided to call it a "Spider Hero" party! ;)

She used some of our Spider Hero party printables combined other the licensed images to create a true marvel! - d'ya see what I did there? hehe
