Christmas Party Ideas: North Pole Breakfast Table and FREE Printables

North Pole Christmas Breakfast Table Ideas


Christmas is 'round the corner! Can you believe it?! 

One of my favorite traditions in our house, is the Christmas themed breakfast. Whether on Christmas eve, a few days before or Christmas morning itself, going all out this time of year to treat the little ones is all part of the joy!

Most week days it's our schedules and 'routine' breakfast rituals that take over. And since kids wake up at silly o' clock at Christmas anyways, you might a swell roll with it!

Plus, it's also nice for me to prepare something a little more special and magical for my little elves ;)

Christmas Party: DIY Santa Fondant Cupcake Toppers

Christmas Party: DIY Santa Fondant Cupcake Toppers


Following on from yesterday's Santa inspired post, I thought I'd share the DIY for the cupcakes I made to match my Christmas Candyland desserts table.

I used sugar paste fondant and printable toppers to decorate the cupcakes. It's not rocket science - more like playing with modelling clay! :)

Christmas Party Ideas: DIY Santa Cake Pops


Chistmas Party Ideas: DIY Santa cake Pops Recipe


If you follow me on Instagram, you'd have seen a few sneak peeks of these cute Santa cake pops, and today I'm sharing the easy step-by-step tutorial.

My seven year old daughter helped me with these ( you can see her little hands in the photos, bless ) and they are perfect to entertain little ones over the Holiday period. 

I used them for my desserts table at the Marie Claire salon in Paris in November, but they would be cool as a party favor or cute gift too. I see them all wrapped up in cellophane paper for hot cocoa stations or even as part of a Christmas gourmet hamper

Great for using up left over cake too...wait, what left-over cake?! ;)

WIN $100 Gift Card from Pear Tree

WIN $100 Gift Card from Pear Tree



“Where’d you get those awesome Christmas cards?” is one of the things we all love to hear after choosing, creating and sending Christmas cards each year, right?! ;)

And the answer (for me, at least!) is always Pear Tree. The cards that everyone loves the most are usually their unique holiday photo cards that have special interactive features like their new spinner cards, or picture frame cards

They may have multiple pages like their photo book cards, or unusual shapes like the ornament cards. And any card with a ribbon or real gold foil automatically gets my thumbs up for awesomeness! ♥

Thanksgiving: Sugar and Spice Tablescape Ideas for the Kids table!




Last year we did a round up of gorgeous tablescape for Thanksgiving, so this year we're sharing some fun party ideas for the kids table. 

This stunning Thanksgiving party was featured first on Bird's Party Magazine a while back, and styled by Alexandra from Enchanted Events and Designs.

The idea is to make the Thanksgiving kids table inviting enough so the kids will want to sit put. For a little while at least...So crafts, activities and practical but FUN decorations are a must!

Disclaimer: Be warned! You may even get some adults wishing they could sit there too ;)

Thanksgiving | Free Give Thanks Printables

Thanksgiving | Free Give Thanks Printables


When life gives you lemons, sometimes is hard to think about making lemonade. 

Especially when what you reeeally wanted to begin with, was a huge slice of comforting lemon meringue pie :)

If my sweet analogy doesn't really cut the lemon curd (sorry...pun intended.), what I'm trying to say is; we don't always get what we want . Stuff happens.

But most certainly, there's always, ALWAYS, something to be thankful for!

It's a Party and You're Invited!!

Party printables, crafts, recipes and party ideas blog


I can't lie to you, I did do a little party dance a few days ago when I saw that Bird's Party Facebook page reached 76,000 fans ... 

But numbers on their own are just that, numbers. And what I really am interested in is connecting with, inspiring, helping and learning from ALL those people who share the same passion for parties and printables.

So as a way of giving some love back, I decided to reeeally connect with other party, crafts, photography or food businesses and blogs that follow our FB page. 'Cause social media should be just that, social. And socializing on our own would also be so boring, right?! :)

Tricks & Treats: Easy and Quick Halloween Party Ideas!

Halloween Party Printables and Party Ideas: Decor, Recipes and Crafts



Hello my pretties!! 

I'm currently working on Bird's Party EU SHOP lookbook, and Pinterest is one of my first calls for inspiration. But then it doomed on me (sorry, it's the Halloween vibe coming through..) that there' are sooo many complicated and time-consuming ideas and crafts out there...ain't nobody got time for that!

So I thought I'd step out of my usual pinspired route and see what I could find/create in a  jiffy and inexpensively, using every-day party goodies. 

Hopefully it shows that it doesn't really take much time (or skill) to create a boo-tiful display ;)

Fresh Take on Meals: 15+ Super Delicious Meatless Recipes to Try!

by Bird Bird's Party at Foodie.com





The weekend is upon us, and there's nothing I love more than to plan some funky meals to enjoy with my family and friends

Recently, I watched a science documentary, featuring several studies that showed that a diet heavily based on red meat is not really the best thing for us. Ever since, we've been making a conscious effort to cook more and more meatless dishes at home. But I have to say, our repertoire wasn't great. I mean, sometimes you've gotta go beyond chicken and fish to keep your taste buds guessing, right?!

So I was totally giddy (and drooling) over some recipes found on Foodie.com. Not only they are healthier versions of classic favorites, but it's also food that you’d actually share with your friends! A major plus for this party gal ;)

Check out all the gorgeous details below as told by Kate.
