Little Women Movie Night Ideas with DIYs, Recipes and FREE Printables

Having to spend a lot of time at home these days, means that quality moments with our loved ones are more than ever, a comfort as well as a blessing! As a someone who blogs about parties and entertaining, I find that at times like these, it's even more important to find beauty, creativity and make even the smallest occasion, a special one to celebrate. So I thought I'd share some easy ideas to help you style a girls' movie night in!

Lemon and Berries Cake with Mascarpone Frosting

Lemon and Berries Cake with Mascarpone Frosting

Lately I've been hooked on baking cakes. Layered cakes to be precise. I think it's the influence of all those amazing cake-decorating videos and accounts on Instagram ! 💁 Hence, my latest creation - this delicious, super pretty and oh-so easy to bake and decorate lemon and berries cake with Mascarpone frosting.  We served this cake at our mothers' day tea party a couple weeks ago, but it would be perfect to serve at a baby or bridal shower, or any other spring or summer party!

If you love Earl Grey tea as much as I do, then you'll LOVE today's post! ☕🍪 My daughter and I made these Earl Grey cookies for our tea party last week , but I'm thinking this is going to become a regular treat in our house! These Earl Grey flavored cookies are shaped like a teabag and dipped in melted chocolate (YUM!), so I'm thinking they'd be perfect also for a garden party, baby or bridal shower brunch too.

The colors we chose were inspired by our NEW Lavender Floral printable collection right now in our shop! Our invitations and printable decorations are perfect for a Mother's day tea party or brunch, but we can also personalize them to suit any event, like a baby or bridal shower for instance.

DIY Paper Flower Cake Toppers

Paper anything is my jam. But paper flowers are my particular favorites! I mean, you take a fairly simple, banal, flat piece of paper and fashion it into something 3-D, beautiful and super practical. What's not to love?! And did I mention they're so easy to craft? Yep, despite their intricate looks, they're a cinch to make, and one of those DIYs that even the kids can help with!

The royal wedding is in a few days, are you excited?! I sure am, mainly because the event presents us with the perfect opportunity to host a high tea party to celebrate while watching the ceremony! I remember the first royal wedding a few years ago only too well. Not only did we shared some very British inspired party ideas to celebrate the occasion , but my scones recipe was also featured on CNN entertainment, and I'll be forever grateful to the Royal Wedding for that! 😉

My kids can't get enough of French crepes. They love it so much, that we make it together nearly every Sunday! Crepes are a type of thin pancake, super easy to make and you can add any filling to make them into a delicious dessert. The most famous perhaps, being the   French crepe suzette recipe, flambéed with with Grand Marnier and orange.

If you follow on Instagram or Snapchat (BirdsParty), you'd have seen sneak peeks of my home office makeover, which includes some DIY projects using marble contact paper. And copper tape. And marble contact paper with copper tape. Yes, marble contact paper, along with copper tape; are two of my current obsessions when it comes to DIY party decor.  And these plate chargers are some of the (many) fruits of that obsession.
