party ideas from one of my favorite sites!

Today's the day. 
My birthday. 
It's kinda significant.
My last birthday in my 30's.  Hmmmm......

I look forward to birthdays, and this year is no exception.
I just have my eyes set on something else coming up very soon! 
One of my very favorite sites that I discovered shortly before I started blogging, is Hostess with the Mostess.
It is jam packed with beautiful, bright and fun photos, and ideas galore.
Plus, it has printables, recipes, drinks, and where to buy.

This lemonade themed party is just gorgeous!! Love the hanging parasols, and the bright and cheery colors.  It just makes me smile.

Don't you just love how even Twinkies look elegant in this setting?

Beautiful Table & Drinks

I have a set of these very same glasses- just so pretty with a little vintage nod.
This next party theme is for a little girl's birthday, but I still like the woodland fantasy idea!

The earthy colors and pops of red- so fun! There's a tutorial on some super yummy looking chocolate cupcakes with a pistachio topping.  Mmmmmm!

Jack Daniels 40th birthday theme:
I'm not into whiskey, but this theme cracked me up!! The adaptation for a milestone birthday is perfect.  Not to mention the menu:
Jack Daniel's inspiration board
So creative.  I hope Jack was surprised.  And didn't mind the "old" bit...   LOL!

Gorgeous colors, simple ideas... this is why I love this blog!  (plus, you had me at the ball fringe...)
turquoise glasses, the mossy grassy pots packed in bright modern vases...LOVE!
Spring theme:

Spectacular bouquet- this would be gift enough in my book.

If you haven't been to Hostess with the Mostess, I hope this inspires you to add them to your lineup of blog love.  Daily inspiration for creative ideas!

Their latest?  Royal wedding theme...  ;)
