I threw a Princess Birthday Party a few days ago and thought I would share some of my original ideas.
This is a picture of the overall table. I thought it would be fun to put tutus around the chairs. They would be a fun party favor if your little girl had a friend party. We only had an uncle come and I don't believe he is in to tutus!
I used a pink bed sheet for the table cloth. In the center of the table is a silver Christmas tree that I embellished with party favors. I also put 4 silver and 2 pink candles on the table.
I used round silver treys for the charter plates that I bought years ago at the dollar store. The plates are pink paper plates with silver glitter Polk-a-dots created with glue and glitter.
This is simply a pink paper cup which I spruced up with pom poms, cheap ribbon, rubber stamps and black ink, jewels (from the dollar store), and tiny rhinestones. I have to say, it was the prettiest cup any of us had ever used!
Party Favor #1- These are the lovely crowns I made using foam, headbands, pom poms, and jewels.
Party Favor #2- I made magic wand pencils.
I used fabric, ribbon, and tape to create as well as hold it together. To aid in rolling the fabric around the pencil I taped it to the pencil. The ribbon was glued. Each star was cut from craft foam.
I decided to create a castle cake that mimicked the cups. Here it is! It was 100% pink! I used two boxes of cake to create the height I desired. However, I only had one pink cake mix and one white. So, I used half a box of pink jello to make the white one pink. It worked and we actually liked the taste better than the original pink cake mix. *Be careful not to add too much dry jello as it will cause your cake to run over the sides of the pan. I was thrilled to see this work. You could color and flavor a white cake mix with any box of jello your heart desires.
*This was a fun party to prepare. After the dinner we took apart our cups and stuck the jewels to our bodies. We had many laughs as we had a few extra piercings and felt very much bedazzled!
