My daughter's recent first birthday was my favorite. The details were great, but most importantly, it was a very happy and emotional day for our family that we'll never forget!

Oh I love them all, but if I had to choose one, it would be the Pink Safari baby shower for my sister in law. As the sole hostess, I made it fabulous with a tiny budget! http://dawnypoo.blogspot.com/2011/07/fiesta-fridayreal-party-pink-safari.html

My Favorite party was my son's Game Truck party. It was so much fun. A large truck as big as a bus was designed like a small game room. Four 50 in flat screens inside, two 50" flat screens on the outside of the truck, nice comfortable seating for the gamers, flashing lights, music and AC! He still talks about that party.

I had a great time planning and throwing my son's 1st birthday party: Little Guy in a Tie! The colors were yellow, gray and white and I created a large fan wall as a backdrop for the dessert table. Every child also received a t-shirt with a sewn-on tie.

Everyone had a great time at the party!

My favorite party so far would be, my little man's 1st Birthday last year. We gave him a circus theme that was FILLED with color, games, a photo booth, great food, and tons of loved ones! Everyone had a wonderful time, and to this day, many friends STILL talk about it! I got lots of inspiration from the circus party Kara's Party Ideas created for her boys! We had live fish for prizes, a fortune teller that read from fortune cookies, and a great prize booth for the kids to grab from! The smell of fresh popcorn filled the air, and the birthday boy had a smile on his face all day!

My all time favorite party would have to be my daughter's latest one - her 'Peace, Love & FUN-do' party as she played such a big role in helping me plan it -PLUS we had so much fun! I also think the 'back story' is cute as to how we came up with this theme: My daughter LOVES peace signs - period. Of course, I wanted to make sure it was different from other 'peace' parties + tried to think of an idea that we hadn't done before so I told her, 'ya know what would be cool?, we should have a fondue bar & then the theme could be "peace, love & fondue". Well she looked at me & said 'what the heck is fun-do?' I laughed. A lot. I explained the whole thing to her but decided to keep the name as it served TWO purposes.
One. We DID have a fondue bar.
Two. The kids had lots to 'FUN-do' at the party.

I also loved the color scheme we came up with, which of course were her favs & it's always so rewarding designing your own kids party collection because that is something that will be remembered forever. The food was a blast to plan out as I wanted to have some retro food items & make sure to coordinate with her theme! For the fondue station, we used sundae waffle bowls to hold the fondue & make it 'portable' & had everything from donut holes, potato chips, strawberries, vanilla wafers, angel food cake, Twinkies, marshmallows, graham cracker stix & pretzel stix for dipping. Ya know, just the typical kid-friendly foods! PLUS the bonus factor: the kids LOVED the fact that they could EAT their dipping bowl!
I also incorporated A LOT of DIY decor ideas since we didn't have a lot of funds to spend on the party - it can be done & still look great! Some fun DIY included ribbon chandeliers, peace flower wreath, dessert backdrop, tablecloth, lamps out of topiaries & more! I will be posting some fun DIY tutorials soon on my blog going into more details.
Activities that always get the kids moving included: hula hoop contest, dancing games and of course a photo booth with lots of props!

My favorite party thus far was the Finding Neverland party in celebration of my daughter's 4th birthday. The party was inspired by both the classic story of Peter Pan and one of my favorite movies, "Finding Neverland". We wanted to pick a theme that would appeal to both boys and girls and with pirates and fairies and lost boys, this was the perfect premise! The party centered around the word "Believe", which is exactly what I wanted the birthday girl and her guests (young and old) to do. We set up the Darling's Victorian era nursery at a park and focused on silhouettes/shadows and decor to reflect the different story characters. From listening to stories to dressing up to playing, it was everything a party and ultimately memories should possess! Though I can't stop my daughter from growing up, I hope she will always remember and believe!

Right now my favorite party is the cupcake themed party I just threw for my daughter's 1st birthday. I started planning almost as soon as she was born and was so pleased with the way everything came together. All of our family and friends know her as Miss Cupcake so every little detail, down to the candles in the bathroom, were cupcakes. It was so much fun planning this for our little Sugarella.

I get asked this question often, and I have the hardest time answering it! The truth is that I have 3 favorites right now! In August, my daughter had a lovely Madeline Party that was so sweet to plan and to watch as all of the girls enjoyed the party. That party is special to me because I realize how quickly my daughter is growing up and the girls had fun just being little girls! The guests received invitations in felt pouches that resembled Madeline's cape. Miss Clavel met them at the door and led them as they traveled through Paris with little red suitcases. They had art lessons at the Louvre, and I set up a display of my daughter's artwork to be the featured gallery at the museum. The girls enjoyed french fare from the Parisian Cafe before going on a hunt for Madeline's dog, Genevieve. Just as in the book, Genevieve was found along with puppies...each guest received a plush puppy with a red ribbon and a french name on it. The guests enjoyed a beautiful cake at a table set in two straight lines. Guests were given a Madeline book and madeleine cookies as a parting favor. It was a magnificent day!
In September, my son had a Magic Party which he loved, and I loved watching him have so much fun! There were many details that were fun to plan. The drink station glowed with orbs lighting drinks in glass bottles while dry ice created a smoky effect all around. We used modular origami stars for table decorations and sprinkled 3-D star confetti all around the tables. The "Vanishing Cake (Watch it Disappear)" was wonderful with fondant confetti cascading over the sides like magic. I made magic carpets for each child to sit on during the magic show- I drew and painted a rabbit in a hat and attached ribbon to the sides for the carpet fringe. We had wonderful magical treats and fun games!
In October, my mother celebrated her 70th birthday, and we had a weekend party that was really special and fun! I used her favorite colors of yellow and blue and her favorite flowers- daisies, yellow roses, and hydrangeas. My favorite part was using beautiful hand-embroidered linens of my great-grandmother and giving new cocktail napkins with embroidered initials as favors. I used as many family heirlooms as I could at the party and also kept it light and fresh with the bright color scheme. We had lunch outdoors by the lake and that evening we lit 70 luminaries to enjoy outside. Cookies and tea were served before bedtime and each guest stayed overnight to continue the celebration the next day. My mother still thanks me over and over, and we never get tired of looking at the photos again and again!

When I finish a party, I always walk away thinking that it was my favorite party ever. A lot of love, thought and effort goes into creating a theme and I really become attached to each of party I throw. If I had to choose one, I would pick Apple of our Eye. I just love the sweet sentiment behind the party theme. I created it for my daughter, Charlotte's, sixth birthday. She has a twin brother and she had always had a joint party with her brother. This was the first time she had a birthday party just for her. I wanted the party to be preppy, crisp and fresh not country. I used bright pink and lime green in the invitations and other printables and built a farm stand to display the desserts on. I loved packaging all the lunch items in little containers which were held in a bushel baskets that were hung on the back of each chair with a huge hot pink ribbon.The girls did apple of our eye make up, made charlie pies (my daughter's nickname), and paper mached apples.
You can see the full party here:

It's hard to choose one party because I really love all the parties I throw. So much of me goes into all of them. If I had to pick one that I have pictures for it would be the Valentine Party, Sweet On You! Here's a link: http://partypatisserie.com/2012/02/parties-sweet-on-you-valentines-day-party/

This party has so many fun sweets. The huge chocolate lips on sticks and the lip pillows were a big hit. I loved the cake centerpiece I made from styrofoam circles too!
I just covered the circles with cardstock and decorated it with rock candy and meringue cookies for the frosting. It was a great way to display the lip suckers too. The ice cream cones are giant marshmallows tucked into a sugar cone, dipped in colored chocolate and covered in sprinkles. Check out the post to see how we displayed them and for many more sweet ideas.

I would have to say that the Aloha Summer birthday party that I styled is my favorite party. I wanted to capture the feel of a Hawaiian Luau for my daughters' birthday party. The party consisted of a vibrant color palette made up of yellow, tangerine, orange and fuchsia and was adorned with hibiscus flowers throughout.

My favorite party ever was definitely the “potty party” that I threw for my daughter. Yes – you read that right – it was a potty training party! While embarking on the not-so-fun task of potty training, I came across advice on how to “potty train in a day”. Part of the advice was to throw them a party! Well, you don’t have to tell me twice! I tried to turn something that usually is dreaded by moms we turned into a light hearted humorous and fun event for the moms & kids. You will get a good chuckle when you see the diaper toss game, “reward” treats for going #1 & #2, toilet paper wreath, and of course the underwear cake & cupcakes!
The details were so fun to plan – I think I laughed through the whole process. AND the best part is that all 4 kids are now potty trained & had a great time!

I recently threw my kids a sister/brother combo Rock Star themed party. The idea was given to me by my kids. We listened to the Classic Rock radio station for two months straight creating a play list, I ordered from my favorite vendors and created all my party decor. Yet and still, everything I planned for this party went awry - but no one noticed and if they did, they didn't care. Most of all, my kids were so happy to be little Rock Stars for the day.http://cupcakewishesandbirthdaydreams.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2012-05-22T12:16:00-04:00

As much fun as it is to do a blow-out, fully decorated shindig, I equally love a nice dinner party or other simple celebration where setup doesn't take too much longer than the event itself.

This spring I threw a mom-kiddo happy hour for friends and their kids. It was on Friday the 13th – perfect for a monster theme. The dreary weather dictated that everything stay inside, so I set up super simple but really fun kid activities and minimal but bold decorations, offered a few kid-friendly and bright foods, and made sure moms had plenty to drink. It was a great time for everyone to catch up. Check it out...http://thesidestuff.com/2012/04/15/a-monstrous-mash-for-friday-the-13th/

I get excited about all of the parties that I plan, but I think my most favorite party was the Survivor camping party that we threw for our oldest son when he turned eleven. The boys had an absolute BLAST gathering fire for their campsite, painting a tribe flag to hang outside their tent, and participating in the fun Survivor challenges that we planned for them. We even hung a bag of goodies from a tree deep in the woods and the boys had to use their compasses to go find their loot. They scored flashlights for flashlight tag, glow sticks, and treats to munch on for the night. Once the sun set they made dinner and s'mores over the fire and talked all night long. It was a great party that I think we'll all remember forever. Photo link: "http://www.passion-for-parties.com/image-files/camping-party-boys-by-fire.jpg"

It would have to be a Christmas party for my children titled 'The Land of Sweets'. The theme came from the story of The Nutcracker Suite.

My favorite party I've thrown so far has to be the Trash Bash I threw for my 3 year old son, this past January! He loves trash trucks, or should I say he's obsessed with Trash Trucks!! I collected trash items {newspaper, toilet paper rolls, yogurt and milk containers} for about 2 months, washed and cleaned everything and used it all as part of the party decor. I recently posted about the party on my blog, but it's been featured elsewhere. Here's the link: http://www.bellagreydesigns.com/2012/06/things-to-share-with-you-and-real-party.html The kids had so much fun, it was great to watch them!

I love creating and styling parties for my son. His birthday parties are always so much fun because we get to work together. He chooses the theme and gets to pick 3 things that he would really like at the party. This year happened to be my absolute party of all time. He turns seven this year and wanted a 007 Secret Agent Man Spy Party. The three requests were: colors - yellow & grey, gadgets and a mission. We had a fabulous time planning the party together. There is a sneak peek on my site: http://www.southernbellescharm.com/2012/06/twinery-secret-agent-man-styling-with-twine.html of some of the amazing details. I was able to get just enough entail to share a few photos before the big reveal. It was definitely a Mission Accomplished!

My daughter's zebra party is my favorite. This party is special because my business was born right after it. I was very inspired to be creative and handmade most of the decorations. Here's the link to the party: http://atozebracelebrations.com/2010/05/zebra-party.html

I loved Daisy's 7th birthday party. She's a halloween baby so I thought she might be a bit fed up with ghoulish themes every year. I suggested a princess perfume making party ,she thought about it for about 10 seconds and said 'no', she's prefer an 'experiments' party. So she had 'Daisy's mad scientist's Party.
I made 'blood' stain aprons for each guest, provided them with doctors gloves,breathing masks & goggles. We had 4 set experiments, e.g. neutralising vampire blood in ground garlic ( vinegar with red food colouring & bicarb of soda). Then it was free experimenting with bottles of vinegar , containers of flour, bottles of coloured water etc etc. The kids were so engrossed, all in their halloween outfits, it was fantastic !
The food was served in cauldrons , jelly brains, body part sweets etc etc. It was great fun !

I absolutely loved throwing my sisters Build a Baby a Library Baby Shower! It was well received, it was decorated simply and beautifully, and the little details made the party!

The venue was an old school house turned into restaurant called Kennedy School McMenamins. The room was an old school room! It set the tone. Each table was decorated with a different book theme. One was Dr. Seuss' One Fish Two Fish. Another table was A Pocket for Corduroy. A third table was Golden Book's with two of our family favorite books "Scuffy the Tugboat" and The Saggy Baggy Elephant. The fourth table had the book theme Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. There were books placed around the room and the chalkboard was used to write phrases from other classic kids books. The buffet table had the Madeline theme and Goodnight Moon theme decorations. I even created two hanging lanterns made out of paper circles from different books they were beautiful. I also made a hanging bunting that was made out an old Curious George book (this is now hanging in my sisters nursery)! I purchased cupcakes but made cute little cupcake toppers from images from various children's books. The party was perfect! Loved planning it and received several compliments.

I really enjoyed throwing all the parties I've done, but my occasion party would be my Backyard Baby-Q Bash - a fun couples baby shower which guys didn't mind coming to! My favorite "just because" party is the Vintage Rooftop Wine Party. It was an adults-only wine and food pariing party and still one of my favs.

I loved our Flower Fairy Party. The concept of the party was that if the girls believed in fairies, “magical” things would happen throughout the party. The girls got to hear a fairy story, search for pixie dust necklaces, make fairy houses, dress up and have their faces painted. We had a blast and the garden setting was perfect! The girls looked adorable in their tutus and wings, twirling around and blowing bubble -- or as we called them, "fairy wishes."

You can purchase a $19 Flower Fairy Party Plan or a Party Kit in our shop (http://doublefunparties.com/shop/) to make your planning even easier! Take on as much, or as little, of the DIY projects as you like. Our party was purple and white, but we can customize your party with the colors of your choice.

Here's a link to our party:
