Welcome Lola's Girl a blogged penned by Jozen, a mama sharing her parenting, fashion, handmade adventures all the way from Vancouver, Canada. In addition, to being a mama, Jozen, is a wedding planner. Sounds kinda dreamy doesn't it? On her blog, I love when she shares of her love for anthropologie (who doesn't love that store?!), special "ME" days, or her little DIY's (must do this soon). Check out her blog and you will be sure to be writing down a couple little ideas to do in your own home...

For Cakies readers, Jozen has put together a little "party in a box". The box includes: polkadot balloons, sprinkles, cupcake liners, cupcake flags, bubbles, paper straws, bunting, and star shaped confetti. Along with that, a copy of Handmade Weddings, which is a good book full of fun party ideas even if you aren't planning a wedding.

  1. My most recent theme party was a welcome home party. I used maps to make bunting as well as little food labels for the snacks. I made a welcome home banner to match, & little cup sleeves to write guest's names on. It was simple but color coordinating with the maps.

    for my twenty-fifth birthday on monday, we had a backyard summer-sit in movie. we made popcorn, birthday cupcakes and had lemonade with apple-raspberry ice cubes you could add to change the flavor. then we pulled out the projector, laid out some blankets and watched hook on a big screen (which actually turned out to be one of the big vinyl shades from our windows)! it was one of the best birthdays and people said it was the best party they had been to in a long time.

    hook completed the "never going to grow up" theme i was shooting for. it was great. :_

  9. We celebrate an "It's everybody's birthday" party when my sister's family comes to visit. Because we live in different cities and the our kids only get to see their cousins once a year we do one big birthday with cake, decorations and presents so that everyone be a part of each other's special day.

  15. I love themed parties! For my sweet 16, I had a paint war party, for my 17th birthday I had a huge nerd party, and one of my parties from my younger years was a spice girl party. For my 21st birthday I'm actually using your party idea from Soul's 1st birthday. Breakfast party! Except I'll be serving mimosas and other drinks with my pancakes :)

  20. A really fun party theme we did this year for my daughters birthday was an art party - the kiddos painted canvas, played with play-doh, sidewalk chalk, and colored with crayons and markers. We hung paint cans from the ceiling and had plastic table cloths "spilling" out of them onto the counter with the food - we did that rainbow cake with rainbow icing and cupcakes and had an assortment of fruit in rainbow colors and the rainbow goldfish - it was so fun!!!

  21. We are living in Singapore at present which is super multicultural. We quite like the United Nations theme. Friends come with a costume or item that represents their home country and if we pot luck it everyone will bring a ish from their home country too. Always parks lively conversations and over eating!

  22. I also started following the blog - perfect timing as my sister in law is bringing her wedding forward to the end of this year!

  23. I have actually read this book from the library and I loved the themes. It was so well designed!

  26. My sister and I recently hosted a clothing swap party. It was soooo fun! We also had a tea party for my daughter's 4th birthday - a simple idea, but always so cute to dress up little girls and make a fancy little lunch.

    ReplyDelete
  27. My friend and I organised a dreamy gypsy party for an 18th! It was summer (January) so we had dinner on one long table outside, under trees and a big bonfire! We wrapped the table with brown paper and people drew and doodled, we put tea lights in mason jars and hung them up in the trees! Oh it was so much fun.

  45. I love the idea of a baking or cookie and cake decorating party. It just sounds so fun to create and talk with each other as we laugh at our mistakes and compliment our successes & then of course we have lovely treats to enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  46. The most fun and most random theme party my friends and I ever hosted was a Cheese Roll! We saw the real one on Discover channel and were inspired to create our own. We made a cardboard 'wheel' of cheese and had groups race down the hill after it. With grass-stained knees we returned to eat tons of yummy cheeses and drink delish wine. It was so much fun!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Strawberries are one of my favorite themes... With green red and pink as the color theme and all things strawberry. We did this for my dd's 3rd birthday... It was a really cute party.

  70. I think a first birthday party that is "letter" themed can be so fun. Alphabet flash cards for invitations featuring the first letter of the kid's name, favors and food that starts with that letter too. Too cute!

  76. My husband's 30th birthday is coming up in October and I came across a great party theme: "back to high school" - all his friends would show up as a cliche (the quarterback, the nerd, the cheerleader, the punk, etc) and all the desserts would be the kind of stuff you would see at the cafeteria (ex: small juice box, tater tots, square pizza, etc) - even have a yearbook photobooth set up for everyone to have fun taking pictures in their costumes!

    ReplyDelete
  77. We have a little girl in our lives that loves the Big Bad Wolf so we helped plan a party for that. It was so much fun.

    ReplyDelete
  78. My daughter's first birthday party was a strawberry theme. NOT Strawberry Shortcake, the actual fruit. It was SO cute!!

    Thanks for this fun giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  79. My 4 year old girl came up with the theme for my next birthday: a "camera party", because (her exact words) "you're always taking pictures, mummy!"
    "We'll all get cameras and take pictures of each other."
    Yes, please!!

  80. I really need to do a star wars themed party one of these days! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  81. I have the wedding book already and LOVE it - just general party planning. So blessed to have good friends that also believe in the power of an awesome party.

    Recently held a blessingway (my first!) and we had a Gnome cake and many other nutty-crunch moments. It was fun to incorporate Vintage and summery goodness into a lovely mushy-mommy party.

    ReplyDelete
  82. A fun party theme to us is just a "girls wanna have fun" party where we all dress up in dresses and have lots of great food with girly decorations....we like to have parties just because,not just for special occasions.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Posted about this great giveaway at my blog:
