Spring/Easter Celebration Ideas



If you are planing a Spring or Easter Celebration, here you will find easy and simple ideas to create your own celebration without any hassle! Scroll down for full details. Enjoy!
The dessert table was created by using polkadot wrapping paper as backdrop and as tablecloth. I added the Paper Fan Easter Decoration to the backdrop for a pop of color. There were bunnies everywhere! I used the Easter Bunny Cutouts 15in on the back of the table and the Easter Bunny Cutout 8in to decorate the cupcake stand and the popcorn boxes. I also found the cutest Easter Baskets that matched perfectly with Party City's Eggstravaganza Easter Party Supplies. Just adorable and so sweet!
Ideas for sweets for your own celebration include mini cupcakes decorated with Easter Bunny Icing Decorations, you can make these adorable Bunnies cupcakes using the Bunny Cupcake Decorating Kit. I also used the bunnies ears that came in the kit to decorate the mini donuts too!
A super easy and cute treat to make for your table are Bunnies Peeps on a stick! Make sure you wrap them using clear bags so they will stay fresh until the day of your party. 
Juice boxes have a festive look by adding  Bunny Straws tied with cute ribbons.  The kids loved the Bunny Prints that I added to our table to guide them to their baskets that was filled with fun favors like Bunny Head Bopper, Felt Easter Bunny Plush, Jelly Beans and  a Bunny -Shaped Paint Case.

Love these  Carrot Cone Treat Bags! An inexpensive and super cute treat for the the kids to take home! Just filled them with Jelly Beans or any other kind of candy.

I set up the kids table using the  Eggstravaganza Easter Party Supplies and some pretty Poms.

 For lunch the children enjoyed a "Spring Platter" with Strawberry  and Blackberry flowers, celery grass, cheese flowers, butterfly and bunny sandwiches.
I also decorated our backyard using the Easter Assorted Bunny and Eggs Lawn Signs. I was so impressive with the quality and how easy it was to set it all up. So cute!!

Dr. Seuss Party Ideas and Snacks

We partnered with Party City to celebrate Dr. Seuss Birthday and Read Across America week! Here are some fun ideas for you to throw your own Dr. Seuss Bash! Party City has a special section with Read Across America supplies that make it easier to put together a party with no hassle!


I love using wrapping paper for backdrops but this time I also used them as a tablecloth! It made the whole table fun and colorful!
I also added some paper fans and embellished them by gluing Cat in the Hat Character Cut outs. I added some Polka Dot Balloons for an extra pop of color. I also used the Dr. Seuss Book Cover Cutouts to make a banner.


I made Cat in The Hat marshmallow treats using marshmallows and  Red Fruit by the Foot, I stacked LifeSavers Berry Bites Gummies to resemble Cat's hat and made some green egg cookies using Vanilla Wafer cookiesfondant and Green Sparkle Gel.


I made the Lorax mustache chocolate pops using the Mustache Candy Mold and added the Cat in the Hat Cut Outs to the Popcorn Boxes.


Fun favor ideas for a Dr. Seuss party are Mini Cat in the Hat Headbands, Dr. Seuss Bookmarks, Lorax Mini Gumball Containers, Clappers(Hands Up for Reading) and bubbles dressed to look like Cat in the Hat's  hat.
We also added some fun treats using blue jelly beans and a red fish inside Mini Clear Plastic Bowls in honor of my daughter's favorite book from Dr. Seuss, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.
We also had a photo booth and used the Cat in the Hat Character Cut outs as photo props.
Hope these party ideas had inspired you for your Dr. Seuss Celebration!

Lego Party Ideas

 THE LEGO MOVIE premiere is just a few days away and we can't wait!! Here are some easy and fun ideas to make your festivities even more special!
For the backdrop, I wrapped 2 foam boards with blue wrapping paper and added blue plastic plates to resemble a giant lego piece.
I used my son's Mega Blocks to display the cupcakes and his paper brick blocks to display the jello. I served the popcorn on yellow cups embellished with Lego Printable by Bird's Party.

I used the Circle Plaque Candy Mold from Jo-Ann to make different colors of chocolate circles that was displayed on color coordinate plates to look like legos.
The table set was colorful and festive!
A Sweet Station - Build your own Lego Treat is a fun and sweet idea to add to your party. At our station, kids made their own lego bricks using sugar cookies, M&M'S and a variety of Decorating Icing Tubes.
