What's the most creative dessert idea you've come up with for a party? Please share a link if you have one.

One of my favorite but very easy dessert idea that I've used recently was a rainbow slushie for my daughter's rainbow birthday party.
The colors and the different flavors make this a fun and tasty treat.

What's a cool DIY project you would recommend for party decorations?

Another idea from my daughter's rainbow party is the balloon arch that we made to go over the pool. You can create the balloon arch as a backdrop, an entrance or as added decor. Use the colors to fit your theme to bring another great accent to your celebration.

What are some of your favorite kid-friendly party snacks that are healthy too?

Keep party snacks easy for smaller kids but make them fun by serving them in different containers. Use cupcake holders and party cups to serve graham crackers, chex mix or fruit in. You can also display food on popsicle sticks or lollipop sticks. I served pizza on a stick and cut out fruits for a Rock Star party.

Can you suggest a fun birthday party game or creative activity for 6-8 year-olds?

Kids always love craft activities especially at this age! This age group is getting to a point where they enjoy sleep overs so a fun craft to do at a sleep over would be to design pillow cases with paint or have everyone make and design a pillow case for the birthday girl!

At our paint party, we painted hand print canvas and also crafted a big masterpiece on a big piece of butcher paper hung on our fence. http://divinepartyconcepts.com/2011/04/27/painting-birthday-party/

A fun favor that a lot of the moms liked from my Candy Land party was a tooth brush. This was a fun treat to go along with all of the sweets from this party! http://divinepartyconcepts.com/2010/04/22/candy-land-party/
