Princess Birthday Party

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!
