Now on to activities... We had a sandbox for of tea cups for in between activities as well as princess shoes to share.
We started by making tiaras found at Oriental Trading. I also purchased these jewels for an added touch. 9TableScape
Next we made wands, I found self adhesive stars at Michaels. I glue gunned pre-cut dowels also from Michaels to the back of each star. Then at the party, we pulled off the sticker to reveal the adhesive and then sprinkled glitter on the star. I also purchased these sticker sheets from Oriental Trading. 23Stars&Stickers
We had a castle pinata found here. Side note...I have found that Walmart has the best bag candy for pinatas. 12Pinata
We also played Pin the Kiss on the Frog. I found a frog prince picture in Google images and purchased the poster board at Joanns. I used bowls from around the kitchen to trace and cut all the circles then free hand cut the feet and crown. The princesses seemed to like the game. 18PinKissonFrog 22PinKissonPinata
We served lemonade, water and fruit punch in our tea cups. For snacks, I had butter cookies, pretzels, grapes, gold fish and the butterstar cookies from Martins. The princesses got to take home their tiaras, wands and sticker sheets. The goodies bags also include some Dollar Tree bracelets, bubble rings from Walmart and these flashing rings from Oriental Trading. I think I have covered everything. It turned out to be a really cute party.

  1. Oh my god! This is stupendous. I must look for an outdoor party venue because this is a perfect party. Everything here is amazing and I liked how the bags are made and how the crown is directing the way. It is simply beautiful. Happy birthday to the little one.
