Parties We Love: Birthdays and Book Clubs

Nicole SteegerContributor

Movies always make for great party inspiration. And the latest Disney princess installment, Tangled, sure was a hit with little ladies all over. If your tiny princess is a fan, then for her next birthday party you may want to host a Tangled Party like this amazing event that was featured on Chickabug

This party is pretty in pink with a delicate décor of ribbons, tulle and doilies. Butterflies and flowers are used throughout the party styling – and they fit perfectly with this princess/fairy theme. I love that each girl received their very own pink butterfly fairy wand. Who wouldn’t love their very own magical wand? My absolute favorite part of this amazing birthday celebration is the fairy costumed character that stopped by to play with the girls. You can never go wrong inviting an actual fairy to the party!

If you are looking for a unique way to celebrate your child’s special day, this Pancakes and Pajamas Party from Pizzazzerie could be a cute way to go. Although this party feature is geared towards girls, you could easily tailor this party theme for the little man in your life by decorating with blues and greens and adding a few boy themed activities.

The yummy snacks shown in this party are quite creative – check out the Bacon & Eggs (actually pretzel sticks, white chocolate and yellow M&M’s). And, the party favors for this party were quite impressive as well. Each girl received a pajama clad doll, stickers and a copy of the adorable book - Curious George Makes Pancakes. If you want to try and host this party yourself, you may also consider a puppet show for entertainment. It would be a great activity addition to this fun theme.

I enjoy coming across beautifully styled parties for seemingly ordinary events. A great example is this Glittery Book Club Meeting from The Sweetest Occasion. Reading a great book, drinking scrumptious cocktails and spending time with friends sounds like the makings of a great day to me! The bright colors used for the décor in this party are very vibrant and cheery, and even the drinks matched the color theme for this gathering. Remember, you can always hire a bartender to serve the adult beverages for any event (so you can sit back and enjoy with your guests). These gals know that no party is complete without a party favor – so the members of this book club all got to take home adorable bookmarks to help keep their place in the novel of the week.
