Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. My kids are all excited to take Valentines cards to school to share with their friends. I have a few fun ideas to share with you. They all use my printable Valentines cads. First are these sweet S’mores Valentines cards. They are tied to a bag of s’mores trail mix of golden grahams, mini marshmallows, and chocolate chips. If your school requires store bought items we recently saw a golden grahams s’mores cereal bar. They would be a perfect substitution. 

 

Here is a non candy idea for you. Every kid loves crayons and you can always use a fresh new box. My rainbow “You COLOR my world” Valentines are the perfect addition. 

 

Here is another fun rainbow card with the same saying. The paint pallet image is perfect to tie them to a pack of watercolors. As a mom I love non candy treats. Of course if candy is your preference why not attach these art rainbow Valentines to a pack of skittles.

 

Here is a Valentine card that is a gift all in one. Bookmarks! I offer several versions of bookmarks in my etsy shop. Just print them and tie a coordinating ribbon to the top. Every reader will love having one of these in their books. The first set is my monster bookmark Valentines. Perfect for boys or girls.

 

Next is the #1 in my book Valentine. A great option for older kids. They come in these bright colors as well as a red version.

 

DONUTS! Who doesn’t love donuts? I offer several version of donut Valentines in my shop. Tied to a pack of mini donuts is such a yummy treat. 

This donut Valentine set is offered in multiple colors in my etsy shop.

 

Are your kids OBSESSED with slime? Mine cannot get enough of this stuff. My newest addition this year is these Valen-Slime’s Day cards. Available in 2 color combos. Attach a container or bag of slime to them and your kids will be the most popular in class!

 

My emoji Valentine’s are my most popular seller. Every one of my kids from my 4yr old to my 12 yr old love anything emoji. I found these adorable emoji m&ms at Target. They are so cute!!! I want to eat them all up.

 

I offer these emoji  Valentines in multiple colors for boys and girls.

 

Last is the popular unicorn Valentine. These printable cards feature pastel rainbow backgrounds. A box of classic conversation hearts is the sweetest rainbow treat to go with them.

 

I have LOTS more printable Valentines cards in my etsy shop for boys and girls in many themes. Race cars, dinosaurs, mermaids, puppies, dump trucks and more. Go check them out for more ideas. Download, print, cut, and pass out to friends. I hope all of your kids have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

Pandas have been everywhere this last year. My tween daughter fell in love with them so we decided it was the perfect theme for her 12th birthday. I was all about embracing the little girl in her just a little bit longer. We went with classic black and white with a pink accent. We loved the overall look of this party.

 

For our main table we wanted to create a dessert space full of panda or black and white inspired treats. We started with cupcakes. These cute black and white dot cupcake baking cups were perfect against the pink cake stand. They were made extra cute topped off with my printable panda cupcake toppers. 

 

We had lots of mini desserts for the girls to snack on throughout the evening. I used 2 tiered trays to frame my table. 

 

Oreo parfaits were the biggest hit. The girls LOVED these. They were made from crushed oreo cookies and cool whip layered in small glasses. We had several food allergies, including dairy and gluten. I was able to customize these parfaits by using gluten free cookies or coconut milk cool whip for those who needed it. 

 

Wafer cookies were used for our Panda bamboo. The girls thought this was hysterical.

 

A party favorite in my house is dipped oreos. Yep we love oreos in any shape. These are great for any theme. All you have to do is change out the sprinkles to match your party colors. Again I did some of these with gluten free oreos for our guests who needed them.

 

Panda Popcorn was perfect for watching a movie later in the evening. I drizzled chocolate and candy melts with sprinkles on popcorn for a sweet and salty treat.

 

A jar of pink cotton candy added another touch of pink to the table and a little bear fluff.

 

These gorgeous sugar cookies by Swirls of Sugar were created to match my printable party decor. They were delicious too. I packaged these up for the girls to take home as a favor. 

 

We did not have a lack of sweet treats. I love tables like this because everyone can find something they enjoy. Or maybe 6 somethings!

 

The main focal point on the table was this printable panda happy birthday banner from my decoration package. I love the mix of the black and white patterns with the girly touches of scallops and pink. The tassel garland was a great accent to set off the banner. I love the look of layering multiple textures. 

 

My last texture on the table was this fun yarn pom garland. Every bear party needs to have a little fluff. Pandas are soft and fuzzy afterall. I created 2 sizes of poms with yarn in pink and black and strung them on yarn to hang on the front of the table. A tutorial will be coming soon. 

 

Since these girls are right in between the stage of kid and teen I wanted to create a beautiful mature table for them. The black and white striped table runner set off the table. Using bouquets of pink roses glammed it up a bit.

 

For the place setting I layered pink and black plates to mimic our colors. The top plate has a printable panda head cut out and attached to it. The girls only ate their dry snacks on this so there was no concern of messy food contact on the ink. They used the bottom plate for dinner. Napkins were dressed up with a simple napkin wrap and milk bottles (starbucks bottles recycled) were made fancy with cupcake toppers, a sweet black ribbon, and dot paper straw. 

 

The center of the table featured my printable panda centerpiece set. I made it double sided so guests all the way around could enjoy it. We added a few plush panda friends for extra cuteness.

 

The food table didn’t need a ton of decorations, but it was quickly dressed up with paper fans and tissue poms. It pulled the party colors throughout the whole space. This simple touch made a big impact.

 

Printable water bottle labels dressed up a typically plain item. The girls could grab them as needed during the party. 

 

I added a sweet pennant banner in matching patterns to the mirror in the room.

 

We enjoyed “Panda” Express chinese food for dinner. It was a yummy treat and a fun nod to the theme. This is one of my daughter’s favorite dinners.

 

A favor bar was set up near the party space with lots of panda items. Born in China was shown later in the evening.

 

Each girl went home with a sweet plush panda.

 

Everyone wore panda ears during the party. These were made with basic black headbands and fuzzy poms from the craft store. 

 

Chinese take out boxes were filled with fortune cookies as a take home favor. Sweet panda thank you tags and a pink ribbon completed the look.

 

We asked all the guests to come in black, white, and/or pink. It was fun to coordinate! 

 

Our last activity of the evening was a competition to see who could get the most marshmallows into a take out box using chopsticks and only one hand. We did it in teams and then eliminated people until we got down to one team and them finally 1 winner. They girls had a blast doing this. So many giggles were involved.

Happy birthday to my sweet girl! It was such a fun party!

What little girl hasn’t dreamt of going to Paris someday? A Paris party is such a fun theme. This customer party features the classic pink and black color scheme with plenty of Parisian touches. 

 

A play on french food was done with a breakfast of French Toast 🙂 , croissants, scones, berries, and more.

 

Food tent cards had the french words for each item. Such a cute touch to the party table. 

 

My printable banner square is paired with a sparkly Eiffel tower and number 9 to create a cute centerpiece for the food table. Think outside the box when using printables. Cupcake toppers can be used to create a mini banner or tag. Each item can be used lots of ways.

 

 

A sweet dessert table was created featuring Eiffel Tower cookies, dipped oreos, cupcakes, and several pink beverages. Mix and match lots of small treats to create a pretty tablescape.

 

Water bottle labels are a simple way to add a touch of the party theme with poodles and Eiffel Towers. 

 

Coordinating Paris printable cupcake toppers are the perfect addition to the dessert table. 

 

The party mom created this fun photo booth with a pink table cloth, Eiffel Tower but from black butcher paper, poms, and a few photo props. This is a great way to get a photo with each guest at the party. I love sending photos from parties with my thank you notes.  Kids love the keepsake.

 

Even the American Girl Doll was dressed for the occasion with her Paris Art set up.

 

The main table was set up for guests to enjoy their treats with fancy chargers, pink and black Paris dishes, and candlelight. 

 

An art studio was set up for a Paris paint night. Each girl painted an Eiffel Tower canvas to take home.

 

As favors guests took an Eiffel Tower chocolate dressed up with matching printable Paris favor tags. 

 

What a fun party theme! You can find the coordinating printable decor and invitations in my etsy shop.

What screams TWEEN PARTY more than Emojis?!? This adorable customer party is such a great mix of classic black and white and pops of emoji yellow.

The backdrop was created using an oversized canvas and printable emoji images found in my emoji party decor package.

 

A simple white store bought cake is dressed up with cute emoji sugar candies and a mini birthday banner.

 

Printable emoji cupcake toppers were added to store bought chocolate cupcakes. Reminiscent of the classic poop emoji without being quite so literal. ha! 

 

White gable boxes made the perfect favor box. They are a perfect blank canvas. Paper ribbon, printable emojis, and favor tags make them coordinate perfectly with the party decor. 

 

Inside was all emoji themed of course. Emoji graham crackers, pencil, ball, plush keychains, cups, and water bottles wrapped with a printable emoji label. The bottle matched the box emoji so each kid knew which one was theirs. 

 

Emoji helium balloons framed the large party table with a great pop of color. 

 

This cute light up emoji was a great addition to the table. 

 

 

This mini rainbow poop emoji was the talk of the party. 

 

Emojis, Emojis everywhere!!! Plush emoji pillows added to the furniture was a fun touch.

 

My printable emoji banner was hung by the birthday girl’s seat of honor. The Emoji Movie played as guests arrived. 

 

I love this little centerpiece set up using my printable Emoji centerpiece circles. I will be honest it took me a second to know what HBD2U was. haha! (Happy Birthday To You for anyone like me that didn’t get it at first.)

 

The full printable emoji party decor package is in my etsy shop

 

Lots of versions of coordinating emoji invitations are available as well. A classic layout and a Texting layout are both available in multiple colors. The party decor package can be made in any of the colors shown.

This customer mermaid party has all the whimsical touches a mermaid party should. The flowy table skirt gives you the feeling that you are floating under water. A beautiful balloon garland arch frames the table making a huge statement in the room while giving the feel of bubble floating. 

 

I love personalizing a party with the child’s name. These DIY hand decoracted paper mache name letters take personalization to a new level. Each letter is unique with tons of texture and sparkle.

 

The party table held tons of under the sea mermaid inspired treats like these gorgeous sugar cookies by Swirls of Sugar. You can also see cute s’mores party favors featuring my printable treat bag toppers.

 

The attention to detail in these cookies is amazing. They are each a yummy piece of art. 

 

Cute hair ties made with mermaid ribbon were a fun take home for the party guests. 

 

Here is a closer look at the adorable s’mores party favor. 

 

This cake was created by using a plain white store bought cake. The party mom dressed it up with all of her daughter’s favorite yummy treats and some of the sugar cookies. This is such a great DIY party tip. You don’t have to pay $$$ for a show stopping cake. 

 

Sweet little gold mermaids topped cupcakes. 

 

Grapes were stacked on skewers to look like seaweed. This look was also shown in the dolphin party I shared not long ago. 

 

Bubble wands had my printable mermaid favor tags backed with gold glittery paper. The tiny little pearl accents with the ribbons is perfect for a mermaid theme. 

 

The printable mermaid Happy Birthday banner was hung by the birthday girl’s seat. 

 

Even the dolls got in on the mermaid fun. 

 

The girls sat at this adorable table. A sand colored table runner was the perfect base for all of the bright pops of mermaid accents. 

 

Tulle ribbon was tied to each chair with a star fish creating special seats for each guest.

 

Instead of 1 large centerpiece my printable centerpiece circles were individually placed in mason jars. 

 

Each circle was backed with gold glitter paper to add sparkle to the table.

 

Printable cupcake toppers were tied to glass jars for drinks. 

 

The entry way featured this DIY sparkly ribbon garland. Touches teal and gold elements on the table made a beautiful welcome to the party. 

 

How cute is that octopus plate?!?! A perfect accent piece. Multiples of my printable mermaid centerpiece circles were put together to create a fun centerpiece set. 

 

Outside this balloon net was a great backdrop for an art station. The girls painted sea shells. 

 

The guests each took home a sand bucket with a printable mermaid favor tag to carry all their party goodies home in. 

 

A drink station was set up outside with this cute foam cooler turned into a treasure chest.

 

Cute little mermaid and narwhal squeezy toys were ready for a water fight. These doubled as a party favor.  

 

The girls spent the rest of the party running through the unicorn sprinkler and having a water fight. The towels were made into mermaid tails with small rubber bands on the ends. Another adorable but functional party favor for the win!

My daughter has always loved anything from the 1950s. When the Mary Ellen American Girl doll came out and she got a diner to go with it we knew it would be the perfect party theme! My goal was to create a fun diner style atmosphere. I always love the retro colors and black and white check patterns in diners. I used this as the starting point when designing this 50’s diner party decor package. 

 

At the table I started with a simple black and white check table runner to continue the patterns in the printable party decor.

 

I used these cute red cake stands (found in the Target Dollar Spot) to add some color. They held printable diner menus and retro ketchup and mustard containers.  A restaurant style napkin dispenser added to the diner feel.

 

My printable 50s printable party circles made the perfect centerpiece for the table. I love the cute jukebox and poodle skirt images throughout the party line.

 

Glass soda bottles were dressed up with a printable water bottle label. The girls loved drinking soda from them.

 

At each place setting I used records as chargers. A printable label personalized it and made a keepsake for the party guests. I went to our local Goodwill store and bought tons of old records. The style of music did not matter for this use. 

 

Food was served in classic red diner food baskets and checkered liners. The girls had their choice of hotdogs and hamburgers served with a side of fries.

 

It is always fun to set up a little doll scene matching the party decor. MaryEllen had a yummy meal at the diner too.

 

For the main party table I had this extra large Madison’s Diner sign printed. I loved the impact it made in the space. This table held the desserts and party favors. 

 

The cake was inspired by a pink poodle skirt, the sign image, and of course a jukebox. Look at that tiny record inside. 

 

Just in case anyone needed something other than soda I used these 50’s printable labels to dress up water bottles. They featured all of the cute images found in the party decor package. 

 

As if cake was not enough, we had yummy root beer floats served in these cute ice cream sundae cups. 

 

Party favors for the guests were adorable in these pink classic car favor boxes. 

 

Each girl got a pair of vintage glasses and polka dot scarf to wear during the party. 

 

Also included was pink and blue cotton candy with a printable favor tag. 

 

50s inspired sugar cookies were wrapped up and sent home with each of the girls as well. They were all to sugared out to eat them during the party. ha!

 

After our yummy diner experience we had fun with a photo booth 50’s sock hop style.

 

We made these cute saddle shoes from basic white tennis shoes found at Target. I used black craft paint to paint the inside shape. 

 

I purchased a set of printable 50s photo props on Etsy. They were super simple to print at home and cut out. The girls had a blast being silly with them. 

 

Next we had a hoola hoop contest. It was so funny to watch. The girls loved it!

 

Last for the evening was karaoke. This is where the evening got the silliest. They sang their hearts out and laughed until they cried. 

 

This was such a fun party theme. Having the guests come dressed up made it even more fun. The girls really got into character. I hope you enjoyed our 50’s Diner Party.

Summer may be coming to an end soon, but I still have some summer parties to share with you. None of my kids have summer birthdays but luckily we get to live vicariously through several friends who throw fun water themed outdoor parties. There is nothing better on a hot day than a bunch of kids in swimsuits squealing and running through water. My friend’s daughter wanted a dolphin party this year. She put together this darling Under the Sea set up.

Varying shades of blue streamers and tissue poms created a wavy ocean backdrop to her dessert table.

 

Printable cupcake toppers featured cute dolphins and seashells.

 

My table centerpiece circles looked adorable all dressed up with glittery die cut accents. This number 5 with star fish attached was so fun.

 

Dipped oreos in the party colors with contrasting sprinkles made a perfect under the sea treat.

 

Of course gummy sharks were a must!

 

Pretzel rods dipped in melting candy with sprinkles were adorable with the life saver accent.

 

A sandy beach(brown sugar) of candy melt fish and shells and starfish cookies were a perfect beachy treat.


Streamers were twisted and lined the walls to create an under the sea seaweed feel through the whole house.

The dolphin princess birthday girl wore this sweet seashell covered headband.

 

Seaweed grapes were made for a super quick and easy snack using skewers and a clear vase.

 

Goldfish were given a nautical feel in this awesome clear jar.

 

This beautiful shell watermelon was a piece of art. It almost looked to pretty to eat. Almost!

 

Printable dolphin water bottle labels made drinks easy for guests to grab while the played.

 

Outside this fun photo backdrop was created.

 

Various props were available including a life vest, beachball, sunglasses, and other paper props.

 

A gift table was decorated with netting and my printable dolphin happy birthday banner.

 

Guest tables were dressed up with more of our printable dolphin party centerpiece circles and various die cut images. The tables had more of the netting used on top of tablecloths for a beachy feel.

 

The highlight of the party of course, was this water slide! The kids stayed cool splashing for hours. This right here is the perk of a summer party. No activities needed. Just provide water!

 

Each guest took home a mini sand pail filled with treats.

 

The full printable package and invitation are available in my etsy shop!

My best friend’s daughter is OBSESSED with unicorns.  The party was a mix of pastel watercolors and gold glitter accents. This party had everything any little girl would want. Unicorns everywhere, sparkle, lots of yummy treats, and crafting.

 

This unicorn was found at Target last year. It was not however nearly this cute. He was all beige. A sweet flower mane and pink unicorn horn were transplanted to create the focal point of the unicorn party table.

 

Isn’t this cake dreamy?!?! My favorite cake lady made the beautiful cake base and mom added all kinds of yummy treats and the adorable cake topper to create a masterpiece.

 

Fruity pebble rice crispy treats and candy melt coated popcorn were 2 of the yummy unicorn treats served. 

 

Cute mint green popcorn boxes were dressed up with my printable unicorn cupcake toppers. 

 

The girls each took home a favor box featuring one of my printable unicorn favor tags. Each included a plush unicorn, unicorn emoji cup, and unicorn cotton candy with another printable favor tag.

 

I love the combo of the pink, purple, and mint green used on this party table,

 

This sweet space was created for the birthday girl to open gifts. Our printable I (heart) unicorns banner and amazing unicorn balloon tower were perfect together.

 

Even the dolls had a unicorn party.

 

Lots of plush unicorn friends were a part of the festivities.

 

The printable unicorn centerpiece circles were used on several tables throughout the party.

 

Face painting and crafts were next on the party agenda. This adorable unicorn horn was added to headbands for all of the guests to wear. So cute!!!

 

Last was a unicorn piñata!

 

 

Such a beautiful party for a beautiful girl!

Summer is just around the corner and a pirate party is the perfect summer party theme. My friend threw this party last summer for her 3 kids and there are so many amazing details to share.

 

 

You guys….. THIS PIRATE SHIP!!! This was by far the coolest part of the party. My friend made this out of cardboard boxes and craft paint. A few PVC pipes for the frame of the pirate flag. Isn’t it the coolest thing ever?!?! The guests all came dressed as pirates and had so much fun in this ship.

 

No pirate ship is complete without a plank to walk. The kids had a blast walking over this plank over and over. 

 

The play structure got a make over. Our printable Yo Ho Ho banner was an adorable addition.

 

The playhouse became a pirate booty snack shack with a sweet printable pennant banner and snacks.

 

A cute spot for photos was created with colored butcher paper palm trees.

 

Printable labels on cans were used to create a ball toss game for the pirate guests. 

 

The trampoline became Dead Man Sea! Adorable!!! 

 

A lemonade stand was dressed up with butcher paper, a printable pirate pennant banner and printable sign to make a temporary tattoo parlor. 

 

 

My super crafty friend made these amazing pirate numbers for each of her kids. She added them to a container with my printable centerpiece circles.

 

All of the party food had fun pirate themed names using our printable pirate food tent cards.

 

 

I love all the details in this sweets table.

 

Printable pirate cupcake toppers add lots of fun pirate details. A paper pirate ship was the perfect topper to the cupcake stand.

 

Gold deplumes were were made out of oreos, gummy sharks, and a treasure chest piñata were all fun additions.

 

This amazing jar was the perfect nautical touch to hold dipped pretzels in the party colors.

 

Pick Your Poison at the beverage station. 

 

Create a name tag with the fun pirate name chart.

 

Crafts included message in a bottle necklaces for the girls and foam pirate ships for the boys.

 

Our printable treat bag toppers were used to make favor bags for guests with eye patches, pirate treasure beads, a spy glass and more.This party had so many amazing DIY touches. The kids all had a blast!

I offer 2 styles of printable pirate décor in my shop. This party used parts of both packages. They can easily be mixed and matched. Both printable party décor packages include lots of great items: Happy Birthday banner, pennant banners, cupcake toppers, centerpiece circles, water bottle wraps, favor tags, party signs, and more.
