Birthday party on the fly

Since it doesn't appear that Isla's visa will come through this week, I'm putting together a last-minute birthday party for Avery. I found some cute cupcake invitations, so I'm thinking of basing the other party items along that theme (I know, soooo original!) Cupcakes have really become sort of a cult, haven't they? I'm cool with that. In fact, I'll join.

Anyway, I Googled "cupcake-themed party," to get some decoration or party favor inspiration....

Note: This is for an ELEVEN year-old.

Topiaries, patterned paper lanterns, and Izze pop. Works for me.

Lady bug soiree. Cute. Original.

It seems I'm way out of my league.

I'm planning on doing cupcakes for a couple July 4th parties this weekend. After seeing this I'm inspired to get a little fancy now!

I think those three kids' parties were more involved and well-developed than my wedding. :o)

Party Dress always makes me feel inadequate, I am really fantastic at admiring fab party setups and really crap at putting them together, that said, I vote the Cinco de Maia scheme!

It's CRAZY how fancy kids' birthday parties have gotten. It's some seriously terrible escalation. No matter though, I absolutely love your invites and cupcakes are ALWAYS welcome (even if they aren't served on monogrammed melamine plates bought for the specific ocassion!).
