Princess Party





Once upon a time, in a land far away, a little girl named Tessa turned 3.

For this party I was told the my niece wanted a princess theme, but I was given the freedom to do what I wanted. I chose to do a different spin on a typical princess party. I focused more on the stories of each princess. I wanted each guest to feel like they stepped into their own fairytale that started “Once Upon A time” and ended “Happily Ever After.” 

For the decor, I incorporated old books to represented the different fairy tales. I also used my ruffle fabric banner, princess party hats, and  Fairy godmother wands For the backdrop, I used a table cloth and a frame from Ikea. For the table cloth I used a bedskirt on bottom and a lace overlay on top.  Now for the best part... the food.  I took inspiration from the princess stories. We had: kissing frogs, Cinderella glass slipper cookies, Snow White "poison" caramel apples, royal jewels, and Princess PB&J's The  food wouldn't make any sense if it wasn't for the amazing printables. They were done by my sponsor Mimi's Dollhouse . She did exactly what I had in mind and was so easy to work with. These printables will be available for purchase in her shop so you can go and create your own perfect princess party.

Enjoy!




The invitation sets the mood for the whole party so I always try to set the theme and tone with the invitation so the guests can know what to expect.
