Cami's Disney Princess 4th Birthday Party

Our little princess is FOUR! Can't even believe I'm saying that. Makes me so sad how fast she has grown up but we are SO proud of the little gal she has become. Cami wanted a Disney Princess party -- "All of them mom, not just Cinderella!" OK, you got it! :) Cinderella is her favorite movie though, a close second would be Aladdin. All of the beautiful photos were taken by Ellie of Photography Studio 37.


After everyone arrived, the kids decorated their own crowns using gems, stickers, etc. I ordered the crown making kit from Shop Sweet Lulu and the supplies to decorate the crowns were from Michaels. All of the kids were asked to dress up as their favorite princess or superhero and everyone looked so cute in their little costumes!




 Cami helped with SO many things for her party b/c she always just wants to help. She sat with me when I designed her invitation and I asked her what color she wanted for this and that and helped pick things out. The "theme" for the dessert table was that everything was displayed in order of the princesses going from left to right on the table: I even had Carmen from The Flair Exchange make her tassel garland in that specific order. (Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Tiana, Rapunzel)





For Snow White, I ordered apple shaped cake pops from Lillycakes. For Cinderella, Lynlee from Lynlee's Petite Cakes made the most amazing fondant toppers for the cupcakes and I also ordered elegant piping on more cake pops. For Aurora, hot pink and yellow Gumballs were used from Polka Dot Market to signify Aurora's "GEMballs" in Sleeping Beauty. For Ariel, I purchased red, purple and green sixlets at Party City and displayed them in a glass jar to resemble Ariel herself. For Belle, I bought rose lollipop printable favor boxes from Piggy Bank Parties on etsy to signify the enchanted red rose in Beauty and the Beast and filled them with Tootsie Pops. For Jasmine, Kelly from Lillycakes made aqua, black and gold Cake Pops for some "Arabian Nights" magic. For Tiana, delicious popcorn in Mardi Gras colors made by Oh Goodie Designs was just perfect to signify the New Orleans feel of Princess and The Frog. Lastly, for Rapunzel, Maria of Love & Sugar Kisses made the most perfect {and delicious} chocolate covered oreos using the popular sun image seen throughout the movie along with Rapunzel's long braided hair. SO cute! The most beautiful {and super tasty} princess dress cookies I've ever seen were made by Sandy of Firefly Confections and more amazingly perfect cookies (crowns, shoes, stars, hearts and castles) were made by Flourish Sweet Shop. Cami's cake was oh so pretty - made by Paige of Polka Dot Bakery. See my previous inspiration post for her cake here. Brittany from Edible Details made the gorgeous Vintage Frame #4 Fondant Toppers. 




 
 
   
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

This will probably be the last year we have family and friends at one party so I decided to host it in the afternoon and have an "Enchanted Sweets Table" only instead of serving food. I like styling a fun sweets table for the guests but it often goes untouched b/c people are too full, etc. so this way it wold help eliminate that and it definitely did! Everything was gone - thanks to the handy little Take Home Sweet Boxes I made and encouraged everyone to fill up before they left. :)


Every birthday, I ask the guests to write a little note to Cami in a book, this year being Cinderella. I hope she enjoys looking back at these little messages someday when she reads these books to her children.
 
 The best part? Cinderella made an appearance (and brought along Spiderman, too). Cami really loved Cinderella who read all the kids a story and played a couple games with them. She got a little scared of Spiderman but the boys had fun shooting webs with him.


Such an awesome day and so many fun memories! My favorite part of her party was when Cinderella arrived and asked who the birthday girl was and Cami yelled "Me, me, me!!" :) Happy Birthday Camryn Jolee! We love you SO much!

Thanks to my sister, Rebecca, for taking the above picture of my little family. Thank you so much to our family and friends who celebrated with her and to the very talented businesses below who all blow me away with their talent!

Even took the time to cut out each one as perfectly as I could and guess what - every day leading up to the party I was like I need to still put those on the sticks/wooden rods I bought. Yep, the day after the party I grabbed a baggie in my car and was like what's this? Oh just the cutest little wands, sunglasses, mustaches, etc. Oh well! :)
