{American Girl Party}

This American Girl party was a simple but so cute!  As always we created a dessert table filled with delicious desserts in shades of pink.

We designed a custom background and embellished it with paper and tissue fans.  The desserts included sugar cookies, french macarons, strawberry cheesecakes and coconut macaroons, as well as the all time favorite candies.

The beautiful cake and cupcakes were created by Mary Annette Aldebol.  The party was held on a local ice skating rink so the cake was completed with a set of ice skates on top.

Balloons and an American Girl stand-up prop completed the look for this table.

{Teen Beach Movie Pool Party}

Today I'd like to share this fantastic Teen Beach Movie inspired party for Mia.  I've done several parties for this family over the years and I just love to work with them.

This party was full of bright colors with a summer feel.  Although it is officially Fall, here in PR we have wonderful weather all year long, so a pool party is never out of the question. For the background we used bamboo fencing and foam props shaped as surfboards which I personalized with the little girl's name, age and movie logo.  We also got these character props which were a huge hit with the kids.

The dessert table is always my favorite part.  I always have a wonderful cake and cupcakes by Jovanna Valentín and lots of sweet treats.  This time my darling sister-in-law Mari from Sugar Bliss provided all the desserts: french macarons, brownies, polvorones, coconut macaroons and sugar cookies which I adore.  Check out the details on the flip flops!  The birthday girl's name and age... adorable!

Now, the cake was wonderful.  She is definitely a master.  Clean lines, smooth fondant and the VW buggy on top was the 'icing' on this cake.  Love all the detail.

We also created a juice bar with coconuts and pineapple cups for everyone.

Kids would receive beach pails filled with candy and toys topped with a beach ball.

Always a pleasure to create for this family!
