Picking a theme is sometimes the hardest, but always the most fun part of planning a party. With so many pretty flowers coming into bloom, taking a cue from nature is definitely appropriate for a Spring Party. (Can you guess the flower that inspired this party? White and yellow daffodils.)

Gorgeous desserts add polish to a food table, especially when prepared by a pro. Check out the ice cream cone cake pops and the elegant monogrammed cookies.

Yummy, healthy food is always more appealing to kids when presented in a fun way. Terra cotta pots with plastic cup liners have veggie sticks and ranch dressing hiding inside. And cute baking cups with fruit are sure to tempt any party goer.

To keep costs low, use items from around the house. These baskets already have a rigid plastic liner inside them so you can just pop in some ice & juice boxes and you’re ready to go. A simple chalkboard is transformed when covered in wrapping paper and used as a backdrop. And let the birthday girl help out too (she made the paper chain!).

If you don’t have any sewing skills, you can always find someone else to make cute monogrammed napkins and an adorable table topper.

This party was created by a fabulous duo that I’m sure you’ll recognize. Photography by Melanie Mauer. Party planning and styling by Elizabeth McIntosh. Stay tuned for more tomorrow!
