Under The Sea Birthday Party

Jill used her graphic design background in creating a very personalized Under The Sea birthday party for her daughter!

Custom printed details (most created by Jill herself!) added a lot of personality to this charming party.

Jill selected a color-scheme of lilac, purple, aqua, turquoise, with hints of sea green and deep ocean blue. We adore the custom printed sign and notes for the "Mermaid Message In A Bottle" activity station--a darling idea Jill!

The party hats all featured sea creatures such as sea turtles, sea horses and octopus.

The cupcakes had the perfect color icing for an under the sea feel, and were all topped with custom printed cupcake toppers.

The sand, treasure chest of gold and pearls, and personalized favor bags of treasures made a charming display as well as treat for the guests to take home!

Jill was incredibly creative in using the fishing nets for decoration--check out the sea turtle and sea grass on the bucket with the deep sea blue napkins and flatware!

A treasure hunt in a sand box was a great activity that kept with the theme.

The birthday banner is customized with tropical flowers, adding a girly touch and keeping it tropical.

The custom printed water bottles are another favorite detail of the party!

Thanks so much Jill for sharing this incredibly creative under the sea party inspiration!

Cheerful Orange & Yellow Truck Party Inspiration

Today's Stylish Party is from Courtney of Pizzazzerie .

It's a cheerful party that mixes mouth-watering sweets and playful dump trucks, catering to what the birthday boy loves best!

A happy color-scheme of orange, yellow and white was selected for the party, with just a splash of lime green truly completing the fresh citrus color-wheel!

You can see Courtney took the color-scheme and used it in every single detail, from the polka dotted table linens, tableware, trucks, party hats and decorations (like that wreath!!!). And of course, the yummy sweets match perfectly as well!

Notice the darling cupcake toppers that match the top of the party hats as well!

We love how the flower pot matches the table cloth--adorable!

Courtney is the creative mind behind this fresh party inspiration, and you can read much more about her and all her party tips (from DIY projects to recipes and party inspirations!) on her site

No doubt you will enjoy all the eye candy!!!!

Thanks so much for sharing with us
Courtney, and we simply cannot wait to see what you create next!

Choo Choo Train Birthday Party

We can't believe the end of the week is here, and we are posting the final party of our debut week!!!! Thanks to all of our party contributors, as well as you, our newest followers! We are delighted you have decided to make Stylish Childrens Parties blog a place for party inspiration!

This fabulous party is sure to inspire you, from the paper products and favors to decorations and sweet table (see below!)

A modern classic "Thomas The Tank Engine"-inspired birthday party all started with an inspiration board created by Kelly of The Party Dress. She worked with Melisa, the mother of the birthday boy (who also happens to be the co-creator of Project Nursery), and brought the vision to life!

Kelly went with the idea of using "Thomas The Tank Engine" as inspiration, but at the request of Melisa, created a more modern, classic take on the character, rather than using images from the cartoon itself.

She used red, white, cobalt blue and aqua for the ever-popular color-scheme for boys that is fun, festive and a modern day classic.

Kelly created the invitations, banner, bubble labels, cupcake toppers...just to name a few things!

Check out some of the cupcake toppers up close here...adorable!

And how about these darling favors (packaging and treats equally sweet)!

For more details on the party, from the fabulous party favors not shown, to the tablescape design and sources for all the goodies you see featured, visit Kelly's website here.

If you are smitten with any of the paper products shown here, you can purchase them for your own party in Kelly's new shop, The Well-Heeled Hostess, here.

Thanks so much for allowing us to share this charming party Kelly!!!! We look forward to seeing what you come up with next!

Ballet Birthday Party

This ballet birthday party created by Melissa is the definition of lovely. We have not once seen a ballet party anywhere as charming as this one, and it is a delight to be able to share it with you.

Every detail of the party was carefully designed, and her beautiful photos speak a thousand words.

Melissa set the theme with a beautiful pink, ballet-themed invitation, to match the soft pink, green and white color scheme of the entire event. We don't know who wouldn't want to attend a party with an invitation as darling hers!

Note the ballet-themed decor in the beautifully set tea room, with pale pink, green and white dishes, white linens, white garden chairs and a lovely display of ballet-inspired sweets.

Pink tulips made for lovely centerpieces-simple, and classic.

Take a closer look at some of these ballet slipper and tutu sweets.

Three tiers of treats adorned with pink satin ribbon makes these meringues even more lovely.

Tulle, petit fours, floral gold-rimmed china, a dainty combination.

We love how tulle is used throughout the event design, softly emphasizing the ballet theme.

The lovely birthday girl.

A sweet birthday cake!

Check out the darling glass mugs and pretty punch.

Beautiful tutus, and on her blog, you can get the tutorial to create your own!

The girls looked to thoroughly enjoy the ballet class!

Twirling, dancing, enjoying life!

You can view all the photos and details on this lovely ballet tea party on Melissa's beautiful blog (entitled "A Little Loveliness"--proper fit, don't you think?).

Some images from her ballet recital dinner, too beautiful not to share.

A tremendous thank you Melissa, for allowing us to share your party and incredible event designing skills to inspire others! We look forward to featuring more of your events in the future!

Marie Antoinette First Birthday Party

Stunning is the best word to describe the images you are about to see of Amelia's "Marie Antoinette"-inspired first birthday party.

Mandy created an incredibly beautiful, romantic celebration for her daughter's first birthday.

From gorgeous decor to a beautifully styled menu; from the prettiest gift wrap to a birthday dress and hat sure to be stowed away carefully to be preserved and kept as a cherished family heirloom.

This party is full of style, it seems to be a stunning representation of
Mandy--once you go to her blog, we have a feeling it will be awhile before you leave. Her style is quite extraordinary, and images are spectacular.

The colors seen throughout are many shades of pink, from warm peach tones to brighter hues, with a pop of soft aqua here and there. Beautiful!

Amelia was adorned in a stunning birthday gown wearing a rococo-style hat, and her high chair decorated in lovely fabrics.

Take a gander at the precious shoes she wore, simply charming.

A beautiful vintage lampshade adorned with beautiful pale aqua ribbon reinforced the color-scheme, and added a very romantic feel to the decor.

Lovely large romantic blooms filled up an urn on the table.

Mandy's creativity with food is amazing.

A sweet mother-daughter moment!

The bold colors are especially striking against the softer table linens and decor.

Even the gift wrap was well-thought out, styled and executed to perfection.

From ribbons to roses, the packages were decorations in and of themself.

There is something endearing about the one featuring a hand-written message on a doily.

Yearning for more? View more details on this Marie Anoinette-inspired, romantic and beautiful first birthday party on Mandy's blog here.

Thank you Mandy, for sharing with us your amazing talents and beautiful sense of style. We look forward to seeing what you have in store in the future!
