Our Let’s Dish Potluck Party Invitations were the star of the show at this celebrations.com potluck party! You don’t always think to send an invitation to a potluck, but when you do, your guests know they’ll be expected to bring something, and you’ll have a great starting point for a coordinated look.
The three retro colors in the potluck party invitation were incorporated into all the potluck party ideas, from the centerpieces to the serving tables and even the menu. Little flags on the invitation translated to little flags that told guests where to set their dish on the buffet table. Cupcakes decorated in green, aqua and orange, added to the colorful scene, where more flags became “Yum” cupcake toppers. Continue reading

This lucky mom’s surprise 60th birthday party has been chosen as this month’s Featured Favorite, both for the darling decorations as well as the nerve of the two sisters who planned, plotted and pulled it off right under their mother’s nose.
“It was tough to keep it a surprise, especially since it was in her backyard!” says Shea, one of the party-planning sisters. Their plan was to set up the whole party in the back yard, while mom took a nap in the house. “My husband and I live out of state, so we had to have everything prepared ahead of time in order to set up within a 2-hour window that she would be taking a nap. It was a bit hectic, but we managed to pull it off. She was very surprised.”

When I’m involved in a party, it starts with the invitation. Pear Tree has a pool party invitation that tied in perfectly with our mermaid birthday party ideas. Continue reading
Give your daughter’s Bat Mitzvah celebration the royal treatment, like this Pretty in Purple Bat Mitzvah featured at celebrations.com. With our Linear Star of David Bat Mitzvah invitations as inspiration, purple became the theme for the modern decorations and even the menu!
Tables were set with solid purple tablecloths, and purple and white runners provided textural interest to the display. Gold place settings became the perfect accent to the royal purple, dotted with purple confetti. Centerpieces of purple phlox and white roses carried the color scheme through, and were spiked with gold metallic leaves for accent. Gold leaves and white linen napkins were tucked into the water goblets.
My baby turned one on May 25th. Oh, it’s a happy day, but, wow, she is getting so big! My fiancé and I wanted to celebrate her birthday so we threw her a first birthday party and invited all her friends!
Lola has been such a wonderful addition to our family. She loves to cuddle with us and give us sweet kisses at night, and hunt and chase birds during the day. She is such a good girl! Oh yeah, did I tell you Lola is our Springer Spaniel? Yep, that’s right, we had a birthday party for our dog!
