Cupcake Bake Shoppe Party
Nothing says \"birthday party\" like cupcakes. Host a cupcake bake shoppe-themed party for your little baker and her sweet friends. Set the mood for the party by hand-delivering the invitations along with a mini rolling pin or cookie cutter.
Use what you already have. Pull out the play kitchen and fun, colorful shelves to display treats and goodies. Use kitchen toys and cupcakes to dress up the party area.
Pretty Paper Garlands
Use a fun, colorful fabric to create a backdrop behind your party setting, and drape glittering paper garlands to add texture and sparkle to the space.
Provide sweet aprons for all of your little guests. A great source is Ooh La Lollipop, which also offers adorable felt cupcakes and cookies for the kids to play with during the party. Another option is to find inexpensive plain aprons online and dress them up by adding trim or embroidery.
Cupcakes are a must! Have some already decorated and topped with cupcake toppers along with a station where the kids can decorate their own.
Cupcake-shaped cookies in a cellophane bag tied with ribbon and a tag are yummy party favors.
Cherry Picnic Party
Throwing a girl's birthday party in the spring or summer? Host an cherry-themed outdoor picnic. Drape a picnic basket with red pompons and fill it with goodies to create a pretty focal point. Red and white gingham serves as a casual and colorful backdrop to the party.
Simple Flower Arrangements
Pick up a bundle of daisies from the grocery store, trim and place in mason jars tied with ribbon and a tag. Give these out as your guests leave the party.
The Cherry on Top
Use a cake topper with a simple cherry design on a white fondant, cherry-flavored cake to bring the theme into the desserts. Add a few daisies to the cake for added color and whimsy.
Keep It Casual
Serve up lemonade and punch in glass mason jars with fun straws. Plus, freshly picked cherries are an absolute must.
Customized Sugar Cookies
Cherry-shaped sugar cookies are an adorable addition to the party. For the finishing touch, use tent labels to let guests know what's on the menu.
Tart yet sweet, a big bowl of cherry sours is the perfect finishing touch to a cherry-themed fete.
Paris Glam Party
For the budding fashionista, a Parisian-themed birthday is all about glamour and style. Plus, it's the ideal party for girls who love pink.
Start with a stylish invitation featuring the very popular damask pattern and an Eiffel Tower silhouette.
If ever there was party to play dress-up, this is it. Tutus, dresses, fancy hair accessories, jewelry, tiaras, pearls and a touch of makeup will get your little guests ready for their trip down the catwalk. Make sure the birthday girl has something special to wear.
Make an easy triangle paper bunting to drape at the party. Gather a bundle of pink roses in a ribbon-wrapped glass vase to create the centerpiece for a sit-down table or dessert table.
French macarons are all the rage and not to be missed for this Paris-themed event.
Ruffled pink cupcakes topped with fancy cake pops or cupcake toppers make for an adorable treat for the girls.
Slumber parties are always popular. Whether it is a true overnight event or just a \"pretend\" pajama party, make it special with these ideas.
Cute pajamas, of course! Either have guests come in their pajamas or have cute matching sets for them to change into when they arrive. Eye masks are also a fun addition.
Choose a color scheme and go with it. Use paper medallions, poms or garlands to dress up the sleeping area.
Sweet Donut Cake
A donut cake is perfect for a pajama party. Add trim to a cake stand and stack the powdered donuts up to create a cake. Finish with a cute flower or sign on top.
Easy, Yummy Treats
Have an array of other sleepover-friendly food around for the girls to nibble on. Popcorn and candy are always favorites.
Soaps shaped like donuts by Milk & Cookeez are a great favor for slumber party guests to take home. Add a cute tag tied with ribbon to the bag.
