It’s Living Creative Thursday where we share creative ideas, meet others in the blogging community and get inspired!
The March theme is “Made by Me”. Share DIY party ideas, crafts, cakes, home decor, artwork, printables, decorations or gift ideas… anything goes! Share your creative ideas by leaving a link in the comment section on today’s post or sharing on Facebook, Google+, or Instagram. By using the hashtag #LivingCreative, we can all share our creative ideas with each other. I will be featuring fun ideas here on Living Locurto each week.
Today, I’m excited to feature Jenny a creative mom who blogs at The NY Melrose Family. She got creative with her daughter’s Princess Birthday Party and you’ll love the sweet and simple details! Welcome Jenny as she tells you more about her party…
I am so excited to have the opportunity to share with the lovely audience of Living Locurto. Over at The NY Melrose Family we love planning a good party and when I say love, I mean, big puffy heart kind of love. We feel that it’s all about the details of a party and because of this we plan everything right down to the cupcake toppers.
In order to keep everything organized, I use my Party Planning Free Printable and start planning like crazy. My daughter’s Shabby Chic Princess Birthday Party wasn’t any different. I was inspired by the darling printables of SunshineParties and matched all of my decor and food to them.
The other desserts consisted of princess shaped sugar cookies and strawberry cake pops, which were extremely similar to my Lemon Cake Pops, but substituted strawberry cake mix for lemon. For a healthy snack choice, I had my Magic Wand Fruit Kabobs.
My daughter’s birthday is three weeks before Christmas so to keep the guests busy I like to create a Christmas ornament. For her three year old party, which was a Cupcake Fairy Party, we created cupcake ornaments. This year we created something a bit more princess like.
We created a Princess Ornament Craft that came out gorgeous. I used glass bulbs because that was all I could find, but I would highly recommend going with plastic bulbs. I love how it came out and it looked gorgeous on our tree.
When the guests first arrived they received their party favors. I try my best to make sure to include a boy option for my daughter’s very girly birthday parties. My nephews definitely seem to appreciate that.
We had Princess Party Favors that consisted of medallion necklaces and pins, which took about ten minutes to create all of them.
I also had DIY King’s Crown Party Favors, which were so easy that I was even shocked. Plus, they held up fantastically.
My little four year old princess was definitely a happy camper. We finished off the party with a fun game of pin the lips on the frog, which my daughter thought was extremely funny since she had just seen The Princess and the Frog.
