The Princess of the house turned three and wanted a Princess birthday. Since she does not have too many friends yet, we invited her closest and did something very simple. She loves castles so I decided to make a castle cake. It was fun to make. I am not a cake decorator so I really do not care for professionally decorated looking cakes. I wanted her cake to look like a mommy homemade cake, with things she loves: ice cream cones, wafers, pink frosting and chocolate!
The meal consisted of burgers and hot dogs and there were also treats such as chips, grapes, strawberries, sugar cookies, strawberry oreos and carrots. The drink was white grape raspberry juice.
We had a “decorate your own crown” station.
We had a “dress up” station with jewelry, princess wands and dresses.
Of course we had a big mirror!!
I decorated the dining room with pictures of her telling how much she has grown! (do you see that board and batten? tutorial coming soon!)
We had purple, pink and white balloons (Rapunzel’s dress colors, the one she was wearing!) on the floor for a fun “popping the balloon-freeze” game.
We also had a “bag” pinata. We found out the cardboard ones are too hard for little ones to break.
She had lots of fun!
