guest post: sweet party details

7.05.2010

Hi everyone! I am so thrilled to be helping out while Becca is spending time with the new addition to her family. I'm a big Birthday Girl fan and a huge fan of parties of all shapes and sizes, so it's so much fun to be here today. The heart and soul of my blog, The Sweetest Occasion, is about finding reasons to celebrate everyday. I am in love with sweet little details that make a celebration shine with personality, large budget nor extensive crafting skills required. With that in mind, I thought I'd share some of the fabulous details I'm loving lately. Hopefully they inspire you as you plan your next birthday celebration for guest of honor young or old. Enjoy!

I love this simple arrangement of vintage-inspired Izze soda bottles and the cute polka dot flags on the straws. So simple yet so sweet.


Personalized logo cocktail napkins are one of my favorite ways of adding a personal touch to a party. How cute are these?


Nothing dresses up a cocktail like a custom drink stirrer. Use your favorite colors, the initials of a loved one or a sweet monogram to make them really unique.


Simple treats like cupcakes take on special charm when frosted in coordinating colors and decorated with a recurring theme like polka dots.


Nothing says 'party' like a great party hat! These patterned party hats with ruffled trim are so vibrant and fun - I love them!


Bright fuchsia peonies paired with navy is so chic. I love the simple cluster of blooms in white vessels stacked on white cake stands. Such a statement!


Simple favors (in this case mini chocolate chip cookies in a kraft paper bakery box) look extra special with the added touch of a simple tag and a big of ribbon.


Never underestimate the power of a fabulous invitation to set the tone for your party. These ones are letterpress printed and feature an envelope lined in a great polka dot pattern that I adore.


Of course, you can't forget a great birthday cake. Skip the candles and go with an unexpected touch like a cherry on top!

LOVE the little ribbon detail on the staws in the first image. I also love the little craft box with cookies inside. I put that in my daughters birthday file!
