Theme Thursday: Rainbows

I did a post a couple of weeks ago about My Little Pony, and it include a couple of rainbow ideas… but I found so many more great rainbow projects, I just had to devote an entire post to the subject!

First up, from the Purple Pug, an post full of Rainbow goodness.  I love how many different ways they used rainbows – a true theme party!

From Icing Designs, a super sweet tutorial on how to make a Rainbow Birthday Hat complete with ruffles!  I will be making some of these… no doubt!


We’ve linked to rainbow cakes and cupcakes before, I know.. but I love this very easy to follow tutorial from The Blushing Bride – DIY Rainbow Cake:

And finally, I just loved the inspiration from this Rainbow themed wedding, from rock n roll bride:

Theme Thursday: Lalaloopsy Parties

I mentioned HERE that my daughter is enamored with My Little Pony… and we were thinking about a MLP birthday party this year.  BUT, she is ALSO enamored with Lalaloopsy, and now we can’t decide!  It doesn’t help that I found a ton of adorable ideas for decorating and throwing a Lalaloopsy party.  Check ’em out!

A super cute gallery of Lalaloopsy birthday party photos on Catch My Party.  The “button” cakes look very simple, but add the PERFECT touch for a Lalaloopsy party!  There are 24 great pictures (lots of inspiration) to scroll through

 

And another adorable round-up of Lalaloopsy photos on Catch My Party.  I LOVE, LOVE the favor bags… and these adorable (well, what other word can I use??) cake pops.  One again, 19 pictures to scroll through!

 

Check out Carosello, and her Lalaloopsy party photos, and comments.  The button backdrop was a genius idea – so simple, but perfection for the theme:

And speaking of button backdrops, check out the Lalaloopsy Party post on the Hostess blog.  This is a great DIY post, with the end result – only $20 for a fab party backdrop!

And finally (although I COULD keep posting links because there are some FAB posts out there… lots and lots of Lalaloopsy this year)… but, finally, a LalaLoopsy post on Very Rosenberry, featuring Whimsical Printables… this party is over the top, and I love everything about it:

Theme Thursday – My Little Pony Party Ideas

It’s that time of year again… all three of my children have birthdays in the next several weeks, so I’m in busy (crazy) planning mode.  My daughter can’t decide on a theme, so I’m rounding up ideas and more ideas to (hopefully) help her finalize the plans!  Today’s post includes all the fun “My Little Pony” ideas I’ve found!  Just in case you don’t know… the key to a My Little Pony party?

Time for Another SHOE post…

We’ve talked about shoes and shoe-themed parties HERE and HERE and HERE too!  Honestly, I can’t believe we haven’t talked about them more, but I’m going to remedy that today!  Today’s post is all about EDIBLE SHOES – how fun is that?

I found some fabulous, FABULOUS edible shoe cakes from Gayles Chocolates (mm..hmm.. FUN site):

And look at this one Shoeholicsclum.com)… a Jimmy Choo edible fondant shoe:

I found a fun little stiletto cookie cutter kit on Amazon… not sure why the photo is so small, but I see endless possibilities with this one!

And here’s another edible chocolate high heel in LEOPARD!

Talking about edible shoes – check out Diva Entertain’s offerings….  Stiletto Cookies… and Oreo Stiletto Cookies!

If you are a shoe fanatic and you aren’t a regular on Pinterest, you totally should be.  I did a search last night for “party shoes”, and look what I found!! Pages and pages of party shoes…

And finally.. I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again… one of our most popular favor and party themes is the Stiletto.  You can see some of what we offer here.  Recently a customer sent us these fun photos of her stiletto cake topper:

Theme Thursday – Red and White Weddings & Parties

We started a new series last week, called Theme Thursday, with a tribute to yellow and gray.  THIS week we are celebrating Red and White together.  Birthday parties, bridal showers, and even weddings – red and white as a theme is hot, hot HOT!

To get us started off with a bang, check out this post from the Ruffled blog – a vintage red and white and black wedding:

And Pacific Weddings shares an INCREDIBLE red and white butterfly theme wedding… scroll through the photos and read their description of how this was styled.  The red bridal bouquet is gorgeous and the little touches of black and red throughout the celebration are knock-out!

I know we haven’t even gotten through Halloween yet, but it’s never too early to start thinking about the Christmas and winter holidays.  From the Hostess blog, a lovely and joyful red and white holiday tablescape for inspiration:

I went back to Living Locurto once again, because she has fabulous printables for $15.95 that are so gorgeous, I had to share!

And finally, from Kara’s Party Ideas, a lovely red and white bridal shower.  Lots of great ideas for pulling reds and whites together… love it!
