Curious George Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
We’re bananas over the details of this party by Angie of Whimsy Farm Twine. Since Angie’s daughter Lorelai loves Curious George books, Angie incorporated everyone’s favorite monkey for the theme at her daughter’s birthday party. The brown, yellow, red, and white is not a typical girly palette, but it is perfect for this theme. Have you noticed that brown is finally making a comeback to kid’s parties? Angie brought in some great props for party…

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
How sweet is this birthday party by Dani of The Little Soiree? She created the party for her ice cream loving son’s 3rd birthday.

When this fun magic party flashed into our inbox, we definitely didn’t want it to disappear! Michelle of Little Wish Parties pulled some tricks out of her sleeve when she created this party for her son’s 6th birthday. We love how the backdrop gave an illusion that the table was grand.

Remember Leanne of Sweet Style’s gorgeous Pantone party back in May? Well, Leanne is back today with this baking party and we’re all swooning over it here.

Oranges and Lemons Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions
It is dreary in NYC today so this Oranges and Lemons themed baby shower inspired by the nursery rhyme is bringing us cheer. The party is from Robyn and Lisa of Lettuce & Co. from down under and since it is spring in Australia, the theme is quite perfect. The colors were great since the client didn’t know if she was having a boy or girl. We love how Robyn and Lisa captured the old…
