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 ;)

party-printables-book-ideas


So beyond excited (and a tad relieved), to be able to share this news! Been keeping this under wraps since last summer when I got signed to write the book

The day I received the news, it didn't quite sink in. And all the months that followed. Not until I actually had the printed book in my hands earlier this month, so it's kinda cool that I waited. It feels more real now! :)

30 Amazing Birthday Cakes to Make at Home!



We couldn't have a 'baking party' week without talking birthday cakes, right? As much as I love any form of cake (pops, balls, cupcakes..) for me, nothing beats a majestic, good ol' birthday cake. It's the focal point, and takes center stage on the birthday table. An amazing cake can help add the wow factor to any celebration or deserts table.

So speaking of amazing cakes, with the help of Foodie.com I have searched the best DIY birthday cakes around and put them in a collection for you. And apart from being totally gorgeous, these cakes can all be made at home. Yes, honestly!

Baking Birthday Party Ideas and Inspiration - For Girls or Boys



Hey sweet friends! This week we have a super lush 'baking themed' party week for ya! So prepare to be dazzle with the eye candy ;)

My kids love to bake with me, and when I was designing Bird's Party latest Baking Party Printables, I realized there aren't many 'boy-friendly' baking parties out there, and there should be! There are lots of girly, frilly decorations, so I wanted to design and style something cute, but that would appeal to boys or girls of any age. Come to think of it, these baking party ideas would also be cool for play dates, classroom activities, or a twins birthday?!

Circus Birthday Party Ideas | DIY Carousel Candy Centerpiece



As part of our #SocialCircus month, I decided to make a fun DIY Carousel Centerpiece - But one made with party supplies and candy (is there a better kind?!) that anyone may have in the house at the time of the birthday party.

So I raided my party shop and grabbed paper platescandy tubes and dinky striped paper straws. Not forgetting the adorable Circus printables, and my trusty glue gun of course! ;)

This cute carousel centerpiece would be fun as a birthday desserts table candy dish, kids table decoration or even a fun party activity (minus the hot glue!). It's easy to make, quick and inexpensive too!

I styled this Easter Kids Brunch last year for Yum and Food for Kids Magazine. Their Easter issue is out and full of amazing ideas!! And with Easter round the corner, I thought I'd share all the details here on the blog with tips and trick on how you can re-create it at home.
It's a very simple and super colorful table that will wow your little bunnies! But these unique ideas can also be used for the family table too, simply replace the disposable tableware with fancier china.

party-printables-ideas-blog-supplies-planning-shop-buy-free



As part of our inspiration week, we couldn't finish without a super fun theme for the boys. Or girls for that matter, 'cause we actually get just as many sweet customers styling it for their birthday girls! In fact, the theme came about from my own love of science.

You probably don't know this, but I used to be an chemical engineer before parties took over my life...anyways, I relished the chance to design something that included a lab coat, molecular structure designs, and the good ol' test tube. Not to mention a nod to the Periodic Table! :)

Here are some party ideas to help inspire your own science-filled Blue and Green Mad Scientist Bash!
