I’m sure at some point most little girls dream of being a princess. I know that I did, crossed my fingers, wished on every star and dreamed of the day that I would live in a castle wearing beautiful dresses. I did find my prince, and though we don’t live in a fairytale setting, I’d say it’s the next best thing! My older daughter would much rather live with dragons, but my longest is a princess through and through. She is absolutely positive that she is a real princess. There is not a day that goes by that she is not wearing a princess dress, shoes or a crown.
So when it came time to celebrate her 3rd birthday, we had to have a princess party of course! There were sparkly cupcakes, tiaras, jewelry and a princess dress up area.
We brought the mirror and dress rack from her room and tucked into a corner of the dining room. I bought a cheap ($10) garment rack from Wal-mart a few months ago and left out the top bars so that it would be just the right height to hang her princess dresses which had previously been shoved into a bin in her room. This not only looked better, but displayed her dresses so that she could choose whichever she wanted to wear and accessorize them with her shoes underneath! Win-win!!
I had so many ideas for this party, but I may have procrastinated a
lot little and didn’t do quite as overboard as I would have liked. We made a quick trip to Disney World a few days before her birthday. What’s better than to meet other “real” princesses? It was so fun, but exhausting! Trying to recuperate and plan a party not so simple for me! I kept seeing these cute cupcakes on pinterest with the princesses sticking out of the cupcakes so that the cupcakes looked like part of their dresses. I couldn’t find an actual place to download or print off the images. So, I had to make my own with googled images. I cut them out and taped them to a toothpick. I used the same sparkly cupcake technique because princesses need sparkles. Right??
The house was full of little princesses. SO cute! I think that her party was certainly a dream come true.
One happy birthday girl!
