Kinsey's 4th Birthday!

I cannot believe I have a 4 year old. F O U R. wow.
I know it is cliche to say it, but man, time really does fly!

 I won't get all sappy on you (not right now at least) but instead 
share the details of the party I put together for my little princess!
First time using hot rollers...
Dessert Table with Crown Canopy (tutorial to come)

Dessert table:

 Cookie recipes via Sweet Sugarbelle here and icing recipe here

Ruffled cake tutorial via Sweetapolita here

Chocolate Cupcake recipe via My baking Addiction here (sooo delicious)

Cupcake toppers by Mod Ink Design here
Outside Decorations:

Tablecloths and runners from our wedding 8 years ago
(never imagined I would use them for my daughters party someday!)

Centerpieces: printables glued to foam board, stuck onto a popsicle stick,
placed in a mason jar or vase with tulle and tied up with a ribbon
Purchase printable princess images here 

Flag banner sew together with felt

Castle idea via Busy Budgeting Mama here
Inside Decorations:

Front Door Sign- Foam Board painted with DIY chalkboard paint, then colored on with a paint marker

DIY framed chalkboard sign inside

Birthday Banner over fireplace

"kiss the frog" game
As a party activity and party favor in one we did a crown decoration station

Crowns from Oriental Trading here and here

Additional stick on jewels here (no glue involved at all= no messy hands!)

The Princes also took home swords and the Princesses got jewels (necklaces and rings) and wands
Cake Time!

Playing in the Castle, opening presents, and Pretty Princesses all together

I think the party was a hit!

 Kinsey on Saturday night: "Mom, remember my party?" Me: "yes, it was today, I haven't forgotten" Kinsey: "Thank you mommy for the decorations, they were sooooooo pretty!"


 Although on Monday she was already trying to get me to start planning her next event....
