This is what Natalie said about planning the party- ”I’m sending you the latest table I styled for a little girl’s 1st birthday and Christening. My client approached me seeking something soft and delicate for her daughters christening. When I suggested Pinwheels, my client was hesitant at first as she pictured the really colourful pinwheels we come across in carnivals. I assured her that we can make these pinwheels soft and delicate. I love it when a client puts their faith in me, which is exactly what she did.
We chose pastels for the colour scheme with an emphasis on feminine pastel colours.
I made 4 pinwheels which sat towards the back of the table and bought the concept to life. I tried to incorporate as many pinwheels as possible though out the entire table. Desserts on the table included pinwheel cupcakes, pinwheel cookies, pinwheel cake pops, pinwheel marshmallows and candy in the chosen colour scheme.
Overall, the dessert table was so delicate and sweet, fit for any little princess.”

Cris said this about planning the party- “We had a BUNCO party to celebrate my daughter’s 14th Birthday. The girls didn’t know much about the game upon arrival but I explained the rules while they had dinner. We served all my daughter’s favorite appetizers for dinner like zingers, cream cheese/herbs dip(in the shape of a dice – made by my daughter), pizza rolls, dumplings, spring rolls and mozzarella sticks. After dinner we started the game and took a break after a couple rounds for some dessert! As per my daughter request, we had a chocolate fountain! It was a huge hit! None of the girls had ever had the pleasure to enjoy such yummy treat! As for dipping, they enjoyed some fresh strawberries, marshmallows, pretzels and Oreos.
We got back to the game and at that point all the girls were into the game! The music was loud, they were screaming and giggling! We had a bright pink boa that was passed around every time someone else scored a BUNCO! We were able to finish all the 6 rounds of the game! The winner took home the boa as a prize! We also had favors for all the girls! They took home giant plush dice, candy, chocolate bar and beads. After the game we sang Happy Birthday and opened the gifts. We had Oreo ice cream cake(my daughter’s favorite cake), dice cake pops and chocolate cornered fortune cookies for our second round of desserts! The girls loved playing BUNCO and now they want to organize a Mother/Daughter BUNCO Mexican Night!”
This stunning EASTER THEMED VINTAGE BAKE SALE PARTY was submitted by Mandy McCready of Koko Blush & Company.
Looking at this party is making me wonder what country or planet I can move to where they celebrate Easter sooner than next March because I am absolutely dying over every detail and thinking I’m going to have to throw an Easter party. Now. Such a beautiful celebration!
Some of the stellar details to look out for in this vintage Easter party are:
The assorted vintage milk glass stands used to display the candy, favors and cakes
The children playing croquet as a party activity
The idea of the dessert display being a “bake sale”
Need a fun winter themed party idea? Look no further than this darling HOT CHOCOLATE THEMED HOLIDAY WINTER PARTY submitted by Erin Williams of Strawberry Mommycakes!
Erin said this about planning the party- “I created these “Some Like it Hot” printables and knew I had to throw a Hot Chocolate Party! I got rave reviews about the food and the printables. I designed the printables with a certain look I had in mind. I wanted the colors to feel warm and inviting, but I wanted the graphics to be modern and fun. I wanted the food and decorations to reflect that same feeling. I created all the paper decorations myself and my sister-in-law and I made all the food. We served Crock Pot Hot Chocolate (which was AMAZING!) with various toppings, Cinnamon Sugar Marshmallow Pops, Ginger Cake (served in adorable hand-made boxes), pumpkin pie tarts and doughnuts. I made food that wasn’t too sweet that had a holiday feel to compliment the hot chocolate. The large fans were made to look like snowflakes and I printed my coordinating patterns on my small fans to match the printables. I also mixed in some silver touches with the cake stand, tray an d Christmas tree to give it a modern holiday feel.”
