I can’t believe it but my little girl turns 5 tomorrow. We had her party this past weekend and I am still recovering from it. The theme was a Princess Party which is funny because I swore (before I had girls) that I would never let my girls wear all pink. My how that has changed! All 10 little girls came decked out in princess attire. I was a little worried because the day before Emily said she wasn’t going to wear a dress but a ladybug costume instead. She changed her mind once all the girls came though.
We borrowed this amazing castle made out of appliance boxes from a friend. It was so big we had to remove all the furniture from our living room. It took 2 hours to put together but it was well worth it. Right Honey?!?! This kept the girls entertained for quite a while.
I split the girls into groups and had them rotate between 3 different stations.
Station 1- make tiaras. I bought 2 packs of 6 foam tiaras from WalMart. It included all the foam stickers as well and only cost $4.00 each. (Much cheaper than Michael’s)
Station 2- The Royal Salon. I had my mom and mother in law paint the girls finger nails and put blush on them. While their nails were drying they got to listen to princess stories.
Station 3- Pin the Lips on the Frog- I bought lip stickers and had them put them on the frog.
For party favors I bought cheap scrapbook paper and some glittery princess stickers. I had a friend (who has much better handwriting than me) write Princess ________ on each paper and then I decorated them with the stickers. I laminated them and made them into place-mats. They got the tiaras they made and a balloon also. It was a great party. Here are some pictures.
My friend Sarah made this. I wish I could take credit for it.
This is what Emily was doing almost the entire time…EATING!
