I was so excited when my then three year old said she wanted to have a princess party for her fourth birthday! I wanted it to me a fairy tale party for her.
Here is the invitation I designed. The left side is one side of the invite, and the right side is the other side of the invite. The combination of the colors, the font, and the carriage are just dreamy!
I used a pink striped tablecloth, with a gold runner down the middle.
This chandelier now hangs in her closet!
I placed a pair of dress up shoes on a gold charger I already had. The favor bags were pink with ribbon attached to the front. I included star magic wands and pink rock candy in them. I don't remember what else I put in the bags, I wish I wrote it down!!
I pulled her Little People Castle out as a table decoration, and placed two princesses at the steps (to oversee the party, lol!)
I think I always say this, but this is one of my favorite cakes! I ordered it with the gold banner and roses, and then I added the horse and carriage to the top. I served it on pink damask paper plates, with pink and gold napkins (similar and similar) a and purple ombre striped wooden forks.
Drinks were pink lemonade and water. Served in these purple striped paper cups. The birthday girl had a special princess goblet. Paper straws can be found here, milk bottles here, and yarn from the craft store.
Snacks were princess goldfish crackers, which I just happen to run across during a Target shopping trip. I couldn't believe my luck! Also, chocolate covered pretzels with sprinkles, and popcorn clusters.
Her birthday is in October, which is an iffy weather time. Sometimes it can still be in the 100s, and sometimes it can be cold and rainy! This year happened to be a comfortable temperature, so the kids were able to play outside. That is always great, but the games we played were adaptable for inside, just in case.
My girls love to help with crafts. They don't come out pinworthy, but I love that they participated in the creation of it. I had them paint one foam board green, and another pink. I then painted a frog prince on the green board, and a mirror handle with aluminum foil for the mirror on the other board.
I then printed lips and cut them out.
We played "Pin the Kiss on the Frog Prince". Since the girls were so little, we did not blindfold anyone.
I cut a hole in the aluminum foil, and wrote, "Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall..." Each child stuck their face in, and I snapped a picture of it. I used the pictures as their thank you cards!
Finally, we used a magic wand to play "hot potato".
This was a fun party, my princess really enjoyed herself!
