Princess Party!

This past week I spent every moment I had available working on my daughters birthday party. She turned 6 and had her heart set on a “Princess” party with a “fancy” lunch! What is a fancy lunch for 6 yr old girls you ask?


Mac and cheese & hot dogs of course!! That was the easy part of this party :)

Games, rainbow cupcakes, Barbie princess cake, rose bud piñata, giant paper carnations were just a few of the things I had to make on my list last week. Oh & not to mention we decided to move the party in to the basement the day before since the weather called for scattered storms and a high of 90 degrees on Saturday! So I spent Friday night cleaning up, decorating the basement in between making the Barbie cake & all the last minute details.

Over the week I’ll share a few of the fun projects I did for the party, but for now here’s a few snapshots of the day………






One of the most fun games we played was "dress up for the ball" game.You should have heard the giggles!!


After all the work & all the fun I was so tired by the end of the day!
But it was totally worth it!
That face says it all .......

Everything looks just perfect!! Your tissue pompoms look great. I love how you attached them to the chairs! I will be making some more this week for my daughter's high school graduation festivities.

Looks like you used your creative super-powers for your daughter's birthday. As an old Barbie fan, I love the cake! Well done, Trisha!

Barbie has entered her life. I liked that cake.One year about that age I used Barbies for gifts for the guests and they all wanted to stay and play longer after their parents came.
