One of my favorite themes for girl birthdays is cowgirl parties! They're rustic, girlie, outdoorsy, and they've often got horses... What could be better?

If you read my Facebook page you know I'm always showing off circle fan rosette backdrops. What I love about them is they're easy to make (you just fold paper like a fan and pinch in the middle, then attach a couple fans together) and they add dimension to a wall or dessert table. Here are some of my favorite circle fan rosettes from our site.

A trend we're seeing on our site is Curious George parties. What's great about these parties is they classic in feel, plus, it's easy to incorporate both store-bought and personalized items in your party. Here are some of my favorites...
Christopher's 1st Birthday - This is one of the most incredible Curious George dessert tables I've seen and that cake sets the tone for the whole party, plus, I love the bright, festive colors!
Noah's 2nd Birthday Party - This Curious George party feels like a carnival and the Brazilian treats look delcious.
Curious Cammie's 3rd Birthday -- Who says Curious George can't work for girls? This party takes the theme and adds a colorful, girly spin!
Curious Ethan Turns 2 -- A low-key Curious George birthday at the park with some beautiful desserts.

Baking and cooking are two of my favorite things to do, so I'm excited that baking and cooking parties have become a major trend on our site.
What's great about them is the built-in activity, the fact that your guests don't go home hungry, and these parties are easy to personalize!
Here are some of my favorite baking and cooking parties from our site... You'll be blown away.
Corrie S's Let's Bake Party! - What an amazing baking backdrop and table. I love the banner made out of cooking utensils and the cupcake liner garland. It really sets the stage for the whole party.
Jennifer H's Papa's Pizzeria Party - I don't know where to start... from the fantastic dessert table, to the pizza box invitations, to the personalized chef's hats, to the place setting activities. Overall, fantastic job!!
Donna C's Little Miss Homemaker Party -- Not only did the guests bake apple pies but they also got to sew headbands (and apply lipstick)! What perfect little homemakers... My grandmother would approve. Plus, the cake and decorations are beautiful.
Adriana A's Pink Baking Party -- Here the guests made pizzas and flower cookie topiaries. Plus, don't miss the invitations with real cooking utensils. I want one of those.
MKR Creations' Chef Jr.'s 10th Birthday -- And who says cooking and baking parties have to be for girls? Here's a pizza making party for a ten-year-old boy held at a local California Pizza Kitchen.
Hayley's MasterChef Birthday Party -- While no actual baking occurred at this party (just decorating), if you like MasterChef, you will love the creativity of this party!
For more ideas and inspiration, take a look at all the baking and cooking parties on our site. I'm a big fan of this trend!
In celebration of Father's Day, take a look at my favorite Father's Day parties from our site!
Super Dad! Father's Day Luncheon - This is the party for those of us who know our dads are really superheroes. :)
Father's Day dessert table - A party that celebrates all things dad (football, cigars, ties, mustaches, and beer).
Sugar Daddy Father's Day Party - Sugar Daddies were my favorite candy as a kid, so I had to show this awesome party off.
Thanks for being a Great Pop! - I love the idea of having a popcorn party to celebrate dad.
# 1 POP - A Father's Day party with a "pop"sicle theme. Great for a hot day.
We're seeing a lot of very cool Monster High parties on our site.
For those of you that don't know, Monster High is a line of dolls by Mattel whose characters are related to or are the offspring of famous monsters.
For tweenage girls (who are way over the princess stage), and want something "girly" but with an edge, a Monster High party could be a great choice. I like how people have incorporated other elements into these parties like spa treatments or even bowling.
Take a look and click on each photo to see what party it's from...

For those of you who don't know (and I didn't know until these parties starting popping up on our site), Ninjago is a line of ninja Legos that are very popular with boys 7-14. There's a whole immersive world of minifigures (heroes, creatures, and skeletons) to draw on to put a Ninjago party together! Take a look at these great Ninjago inspirations...
