I am so excited to share that Macy’s Woodland Fairie Birthday Party is being featured on a fabulous site for party inspiration and resource. The Party Wagon has given my special party the royal treatment with photos and write up. Im touched at Ms. Lydia’s thoughtful introduction of me and my creation. I’ve really never been “described” before….I love it! Its an honor to be complimented by other party stylists and enthusiasts and Im very thankful that the Fairy party will now be shared with many more people looking for party ideas. Thank You Lydia!

Its HOT! Its summer here in the city and as we begin planning Macy’s 9th birthday party I thought it would be a great time to post her 8th birthday party, Aloha! A Luau Pool Party. I bet there is alot of people planing a luau party this time of year, its the perfect summer theme and I hope you find ours inspiring! We had her party at our community pool and it was a such beautiful venue that it didnt take much to decorate.
Macy's 8th Birthday Celebration
Hawaiian Party Table
There are a few consistent elements in Macy’s birthday parties, I always make the cake and the invitations are handmade. This year was no exception, hand cut hibiscus flowers were the front of the invites and the party info was on a medallion on the back. In her earlier years, our parties included a lot of friends and family & I had to make about 5o invites. But now that she’s older and we dont live near friends and family anymore her party guests are school friends and total less than 20 guests. This years cake was a Hula Girl Barbie and she was so easy to make! (I’ll talk more on her in a future SugarCoated post)

When it comes to buying party supplies, there are a lot of Luau and Hawaiian themes to choose from. I tried to keep ours simple and I was very careful to not go overboard or cheesy. Lots of color is a given when you are do a luau, but since this was a girl’s party it was easy to add in more pink and orange to give it a focus. A few plain white tablecloths were a great investment I made a few years back and this was another party that I was glad we were able to use them. The grass table skirt was safety pined to it and because it was cloth I didnt have to worry about the weight of it tearing a plastic tablecloth. The party and favors included a lei and hibiscus hair clip and a flower printed tote to stuff with candy & treats from the pull string (the only kind I do) pink flamingo pinata. Cool treats like fresh fruit served in a half pineapple and Hawaiian Punch in a coconut shell cup was all that was needed to entertain these girls. I could hardly keep them at the table long enough to even sing happy birthday, because they were very anxious to get in the pool and just have fun.
