Friday's Finds ~ let's party!

Well I haven't done a Friday's Finds in a while and thought it was about time.

My theme for this one is birthday parties, and I'll share a few of my favorite finds. BTW the above pic is not my own but I sure love those festive lanterns. I didn't think I could find them anywhere, but you can find them here. Thank you Karen for the tip. :)

I also found these adorable cupcake plates by Tag. You can find them here. I'm thinking they wouldn't have to be just for birthday parties, you could use them anytime you wanted to use something fun and whimsical. I love anything with polka dots, that's probably why they appeal to me so much.






Then to match those plates, you must have these...the cupcake candle holders, found here too. They are the Tag party mini cupcake candle holders. Adorable with a capital A if I may say so...and we have them so can attest to that. See below pic of Grace and Will blowing out the candles on her bday cake last Summer.



Now to go along nicely with these new party pretties, you must check out one of my very favorite blogs....Bakerella....to bake something yummy for the party!


Have a great Friday and weekend! :)

Love the cupcake theme. Anytime a celebration is even mentioned around here the word cupcake always comes out of the kids mouths. We truly are sweet lovers... absolutely love Bakerella!

What a "sweet" picture of your two "sweeties" blowing out the candles. Too sweet! (okay I'm done now!) ;-)

So glad it's Friday!!! Have a great weekend!

What a find. I just spent the last hour on the bakerella site. (wow....someone as crazy as I am. I turn everything into balls. sorry...you know what I mean :) Thanks you for the link.

Sweet lanterns and candles. Makes everything fun and festive.

Now about your daughter. Sorry, but I can't get over how chiseled her face and neck are. She really has amazing bones. Can't stop gushing over her. Hope you don't mind.

Have a great week-end Gail.

Fabulous! What a great idea for girls who aren't into the 'character' parties. Very cute.

Oh my, the photo of Grace blowing out her candles (with Will "helping") is just too precious!!

Fun post. I would love to have such a dignified party -- I'm afraid we'll be stuck with Disney Princess themes FOREVER with our girls!

Jboo said...

What great finds!! Love those plates and the b-day candle holders -- so cute -- almost as cute as the two kiddos blowing out the candles!

Have a great weekend!

I LOVE a cute lantern and what mama does not like some awesome birthday finds??? I am actually working on birthday parties this week, themes and beginning to order supplies, now my mind is really spinning!

You are so creative and inspired gail, thanks!

Have a happy weekend...the last picture of Will and Grace at the cake is too cute. How do you ever say NO to those two, the cute factor alone has got to kill you!

Hugs,
