Pinkalicious Birthday Party!

This was a special birthday party for a very special little girl.  The book Pinkalicious by Victoria Kann was the inspiration for the party theme.  Pinkalicious is a little girl who eats too many pink cupcakes and turns pink herself.  The only cure is to eat healthy green food.

I made the pink tulle tableskirt to add a big hit of color to the dessert table.  And here is the gorgeous cake made by Melinda at BakeLove Bakery (she's my sister too!)

Cream Soda dressed up for the party!

The dessert table was accented with candy jars, lace and doilies, just like the book.

We set up a photo  area with a pink wrapping paper backdrop and some fun props like giant cupcakes a a pink wig!

For our party craft the girls made cupcake ornaments - easy, sparkly and fun!

Pink wig from the photo props!

I think every party should have a great soundtrack.  Pink City by the Ditty Bops was the absolutely perfect song of the day!

Alice in Wonderland Tea Party

At the very end of this party the birthday girl mistakenly let go of her balloon.  It floated up and away into the blue sky and our photographer happened to catch that moment.  I love the way the photo perfectly represents the blue and white of Alice's famous dress.

Our Tea Table was inspired by the disney movie - super long (18 feet) and laden with finger foods and mismatched china tea cups.

We used sugar cubes and the young ladies loved asking each other "one lump or two?" as the "tea" was poured.

Iced lemon sugar cookies exclaimed "Try Me", "Eat Me" and "Take One"

A truly amazing cake - from Bake Love Bakery

My favorite detail at the bottom of the cake - The exhausted little card rests between painting the roses red.

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Party

This Mickey Mouse Clubhouse party was designed for a little boy's second birthday. 

A pint sized table helped make the pint sized guests comfortable (and so cute for photos!)
