This adorable LEMONADE STAND BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Jessica Roberts of Quilted Polka Dot. Oh my goodness, I just want to jump into these pictures and join all the fun! What a darling party!!
Jessica said- “I wanted to make a lemonade stand for my little girl this summer and decided she needed a whole party created around it! I wanted this party to be girly – pink of course – but also include some of my favorite summery things like strawberry red, oceanside teal blue, and sunflower yellow.
It would be a perfect party at any age for birthdays, baby and wedding showers, or any get-together!
I love using old things and giving new things that old feel. I also like to throw in the unexpected – like using a kitchen scale with lemons instead of a traditional cake (that no one eats), an over-sized magnet board as part of my backdrop, my daughter’s play plates instead of throw away ones, and double stacked cake stands for height and visual interest.”

I am in love with this PETER PAN 4TH BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Jenny Keller of Jenny Cookies!! Not only does Jenny style exquisite desserts, but she throws some fabulous parties as well!
Jenny said- “My sweet little Hudson turned 4 a few weeks ago, which I can still hardly believe. We celebrated Hudson’s fourth birthday by throwing him a Peter Pan party. He was thrilled with his invitations we sent out in bottles, and could hardly wait to wear his Peter Pan costume. He was a little disappointed though when he discovered the costume didn’t make him fly. Trust me, he tried jumping off the bed. (Thank goodness it was just the bed.)
The Kellers became Peter Pan, Captain Hook, Wendy Darling, and Princess Tigerlily for Hudson’s big day!
His party took place on the beach at Kayak Point State Park. We woke up to rainclouds and sprinkles but by the time we got out to the beach the rain had stopped and the sun was shining. It was a birthday miracle. (If you know me, it rains about 75% of the time I’m planning an outdoor party.)
The kids had a blast at the beach. They had a Peter Pan picnic on a pirate ship table, dug for buried treasure, sword fought mean Captain Hook, had their faces painted, and of course ate more sugar than their parents would have agreed to.”

How darling is this MOMMY AND ME MAD HATTER TEA PARTY submitted by Heidi of Ira & Lucy! What a fun idea…host a mother daughter play-date / tea party!
Heidi said- “This Mommy & Me Mad Hatter Tea Party came to life when I volunteered to the mommies in my mommy group that I would LOVE to design, style and prop a kid-themed party. Mom of twins, Kate, immediately emailed me that she had always wanted to do an Alice In Wonderland themed party. So, Judy and I jumped at the chance to design the event and let’s just say we had a blast!
We thought that bold colors best displayed the wonderland’s exotic “mad” color scheme. With peacock feathers as the perfect color combination, we headed to our local craft stores and selected feathers of blues, purples, teals and golds along with vibrant bold silk flowers. We opted for silk flowers, that could be sturdy and “baby resistant” in case some were snatched up by little fingers.
In keeping with the “Mad Hatter” style, the table was set with our mismatched china, ornate plate chargers, vintage silverware, lace doilies, custom made table runners and china dessert stands. Judy did an amazing job making the china plate dessert stands, runners and pillows! Feel free to send us an email if you are interested in our designing any custom decor pieces (runners, pillows, china dessert stands, etc.). Judy@IraAndLucy.com
We up-cycled old glass bowls, plates and vases into wonderland mushrooms. This had to have been one of the most fun details we designed! Of course, any opportunity to spray paint and we’re all for it! Don’t they look fab?!
Yes, Ira & Lucy is primarily a Vintage Prop Rental business, but as you can see we LOVE designing the whole event! Hand sewing these Alice Aprons and Little Boy Bow Tie Vest onesies made for great gifts for all the mommies and added the perfect finishing touch. The stool the twins are sitting on, fondly named Toby, is a great piece for events. We’ve designed it with a removable cover just in case our clients want a different color/pattern. Athena, the shabby chic dining table works for so many occasions. I can’t wait to see her as the head table for a bridal party. View our furniture inventory (here). Architectural elements, such as our vintage doors represented the beginning scenes of Alice’s journey into Wonderland.”
