My sweet little angel had a birthday last week. As usual, I asked her what kind of cake she wanted, and then I draw inspiration from that. She wanted a Barbie cake...again. I did that for her last year. I asked her like 20 times in a month period and it was always the same answer. See, she's the type that if it happens once like that (for anything) that's how it is going to happen every time. I know she probably could have wanted a Barbie party, but I also know how she is so I thought it would be good to give her another option. So, I finally asked her if she would rather do a princess birthday...and she said yes! Thankfully :) Oh, I know it would be have been super simple to do the same ol' thing I did last year; use all the same decor, etc. But I didn't want to tire out the guests with the same thing. Although, I'm sure they wouldn't have minded either. Actually, this was probably only a big deal to me lol. Anyway. I went a little more low key this year then last year, but I wanted to share all the decor and food we had!
We had three places with food and drinks on them. The first and main one was our dining table. I just placed a pink table cover on it, and then some pink tulle to soften it up. On top of that was the cake and most of the yummies.
I followed this tutorial on doing the rosettes, and used this recipe from Wilton for the buttercream frosting. The bottom was with no color, and the top was just with a drop of red. I doubled the recipe to get enough frosting for the entire cake. Afterwards, I then added small little edible pearls into the middle of each rosette and glitter type sprinkles. I probably shouldn't have put the ribbon in the middle, but I did and then it was too late to take off :)
At the end of the party, I was thinking how cute it would be for all the kids to get dressed up as princesses. We have enough princess dresses here I wish I had thought of it sooner!
And as a craft, I grabbed a princess crown kit from Hobby Lobby. They turned out so cute!
Hope you all grabbed some inspiration from this! Cute parties don't have to cost a ton of money! I did all of this for under $100...and there's a lot of decor that you didn't see that's included in that!
