PANDA-MONIUM BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS

Ahh! I love this adorable Panda Party so much!  If my daughter had not outgrown themed parties, this is exactly the party theme I would wish to host for her!  This is the first year that she has not requested a certain type of party, and so I will just share with you these fabulous party ideas from Jenny, at Bloom Designs!  I don't mind living vicariously through someone else's fun, how about you?  Jenny makes "Pandamonium" look so cute!

The party decorations are so much fun- I love the set-up on the porch around the fireplace...and I love the panda balloons and place settings that are on the party table!

The design of the panda and the light pink plate color is such a great mix.  I think these are adorable!

Of course, I love a beautiful dessert table and this one is just fantastic!  The Oreo cake and all of the panda desserts are so creative and very fun...

The white chocolate mousse in glass dessert cups decorated to look like panda bears is my favorite on the table!

The cake pops are beautiful in blush and white...and then look how sweet the doughnuts are with the simple, but oh-so-cute panda picks...

And, the panda bear macarons are pretty darn cute themselves!

For acitivities, Jenny says "..during the party the girls ate panda pasta and panda dogs- the birthday girl’s favorite on the dinner table set with our custom panda plates and party like a panda cups. The girls entertained themselves at the panda polish station and went on a panda hunt. Once it got dark the girls settled into our little movie lounge area and watched Kung Foo Panda where they ate panda popcorn and panda puffs. To make the movie aspect a bit more unique, I wrapped the candy boxes in custom wrappers and decorated the space with panda posters and honeycomb balls.".  I love all of the details that Jenny included to make them whole party panda perfect.

Pin the Nose on the Panda was also set-up for the guests~ and everyone was able to Adopt a Panda to take home!


How fun is that?  I think the party ideas are just fantastic.  I encourage you to let me know if you host a Panda Party- I would love to see your ideas, too!  Cheers to all of the fun ways to celebrate your favorite people!

XO,

Lydia

BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS FOR TEENS AND TWEENS ~ EMOJI PARTY

Everyone loves to express themselves and EMOJIs make it more fun than ever! These birthday party ideas, with Emojis as the theme, appeal to such a wide range of ages.  I know it is often difficult to find a theme for older kids (tweens and teens), and so this party by Lillian Hope Designs is a perfect way to celebrate with something everyone can agree on...who can deny the charm of these little yellow faces with heart eyes and cute smiles? I also love the fact that they translate so well into fun desserts and treats!  These Emoji Cookies are just the best!

Despicable Me is one of everyone's favorite movies- and this theme makes a great birthday party idea!  Jenny, of Jenny's Party Ideas, created this party for a birthday boy turning age 9~ but this is a fun theme for most any age!  Enjoy the decorations and inspiration!

The tall jar of macarons is adorable!  I bet the kids loved seeing which character they would get from the "cookie jar"!

The table setting was vibrant and colorful with Minion plates set along with red stripes and bright yellow~

Favor bags were made cute, easy, and age-appropriate with Minion Duct Tape...
