By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions
We’re very busy getting ready for hosting many people for Thanksgiving and Hanukkah. How are you all coming along with holiday prep? This party was by Blooming Table for a birthday party, but the blue and white packaging and desserts can give you some inspiration for the eight days of Hanukkah, right? Since Thanksgivukkah will not happen for more than 77,000 years, below are our favorite Thanksgivukkah links from around the web. Enjoy the holidays…

Queen of Hearts Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
We’re loving this dessert table sent to us by Monaliz of Bella Sweets. The dessert table was for Monaliz’ very own baby shower and was inspired by the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland. It is a refreshing take on what we normally see with Alice in Wonderland parties because she focused on one element in the story and because of the red, pink, black and white color palette. Sweets treats included red velvet…

These fun chandeliers from Nicole of Chandelier by Nicole Ketchum are totally putting smiles on our faces this morning.We love all of the bright colors and think it could easily dress up a party space. The chandeliers come in 11 colors and currently there are 3 lines. The Fancy line above is versatile enough for weddings, parties, or home decor. The octopus chandelier below would be so cute in a baby’s room or a kid’s…

We showed you a sneak peek yesterday of this adorable gingerbread party from Erin of Strawberry Mommycakes. We’re back now with the whole party so you may want to grab a hot cocoa and settle in for a toasty post. We love all of Erin’s colorful Gingerbread House Party Printables.

40th Birthday Big Bang Theory Party

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions
We’re geeking out this morning with this Big Bang Theory themed dessert table by Lily of Lily Chic Events. Lily created the party for her husband’s 40th birthday party. Since her husband has a physics degree and her family loves watching Big Bang Theory together {we can relate!}, this was a great theme. We love the “test pattern” design and all of the colors. Sweet treats on the dessert table included Tetris cookies, Nerd Candy,…

Mermaid Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
Kenna of Miss Party Mom designed this dessert table for a very lucky mermaid-loving girl’s birthday. With all the sparkles and glitter, this is like a little girl’s dream! We love the pink, purple and aqua palette, the fish scale mermaid cake, and the shell and mermaid cake pops! Other sweets on the dessert table included salt water taffy, underwater pearl gum balls, and macarons. The birthday girl’s mom, a photographer, set up a little…

Anchor’s Aweigh Guest Dessert Table

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
Anchor’s aweigh! We are going nautical today with this party that was styled by Belinda from Styled By Belle for a little boy’s first birthday party. The birthday was held at a venue on the water so the nautical theme suited the setting perfectly. Belinda’s client wanted to incorporate the traditional nautical red, white & blue with a touch of gold. Lots of nautical props were used such as fish netting draped over the dessert…

The darling Linda of Frog prince cake & cookie design sent us this playful confetti and carnival party that she made for her daughter Kati’s birthday and we think it is so sweet. We first met Linda and Kati here at King of Prussia and it has been lovely to see Kati grow. We love how Linda embellished her unique treats with pretty decor and confetti.

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…

Ice Cream Guest Dessert Feature

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. It’s getting warm in Australia where Dani is based, but we’d be game for this party any day of the year! We love how playful the oversized balloons are against the dotted backdrop that Dani created. Dani also designed the invite and the printables. Guests created their own ice cream cones…

This moon/space party by Gerri and Carole of Little Birdie is out of this world! Remember this party that they created for a little girl’s birthday? Well, the little girl was lucky enough to have the dynamic duo of Little Birdie to create her birthday again!

Magic Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
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. The vanishing rabbit in a hat cake, playing card cookies, Houdini Jelly, and magician cupcakes were so well executed. Michelle customized playing cards for…

Train Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
We’re back with another adorable party from down under. Maria of Style My Table created this party for her son’s birthday. Since he loves trains, a choo choo party was a great choice for a theme. We love the simple and playful design of the backdrop. The birthday boy also helped put together the dessert table by placing his favorite wooden train set on the table. It gives a nice flow to the design of…

Baking Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
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. The party was created for a little girl’s 5th birthday party. Since the birthday girl loves baking and her mom owns Yum-ME Cakes, a cookie and cupcake decorating party seemed appropriate. Yum-ME Cakes made the cake, cookies, cake pops and cupcakes. We love how Leanne incorporated the pretty…

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…
