Princess Party

My daughter LOVES everything princesses right now so we planned a very special party for her this year.

At her first "friends" party, she got to invite four of her besties to a pampered princess party at a local spa. Each little girl was treated to a mani, pedi and up-do. Oh yes, yes, I did.

London selected five of her favorite Disney Princesses to round out our theme and I made gift boxes and coordinating tutus for each girl that referenced each one:
  • Snow White
  • Aurora (Sleeping Beauty)
  • Jasmine
  • Cinderella
  • Ariel

The gift boxes were filled with royal silver tissue and each received a wand, tiara, earrings, tattoos, a lipstick pen and a ring that coordinated with one Princess. I used Disney Princess cut outs and matching ribbon to make each unique.

After the favor boxes were ready, I used the same ribbon and two tones of tulle to make tutus for each girl. This one was for London who was Princess Jasmine for the day. If you ever want to learn how to make these tutus, YouTube has some great videos by some terrific people. It's really super simple.

And this is a similar version for Cinderella.

Here's the set.

I also ordered some cute custom water bottle labels and invites from Etsy (a shop called Creative Party Pixels), found some fun straws that were put in plastic champagne glasses at the spa and then there were some custom cookies and pink cake pops to round out the other snacks and goodies.

And then of course there was the magical day at the spa. The girls loved every minute of their pampering and looked adorable in their mini pink robes!

Pedi time ...

And the crowning moment. Literally!

Afterwards, the girls gathered up their things and put on all their accessories and tutus and floated around the spa using their wands to turn the moms into Princesses too. So cute and so much fun!!
