Birthdays Galore: Pt. 3

Part Three: Details…..the final installment.

Anyone who knows Ella knows that she can be the epitome of a girly girl. She is currently (as has been for that matter) addicted to all things princess. When I asked what she wanted to do for her birthday, Sleeping Beauty! And then she threw in Rapunzel for fun. With my criteria in hand, I started searching Etsy for the perfect invitation. It took a little bit, but I finally found them!!

The Invitations!

The Store: Timberly’s Designs

The Food! (I did not get any pictures of the food table!)

Ella picked all of the food for her party, EVERYTHING!

We had a Sandwich bar – Turkey, Ham, & Cheese; Peanut Butter & Jelly.

Fresh Fruit – Cuties, Strawberries, Grapes, & Blueberries (the kids LOVED the fruit)

Veggies – Green Peppers and Baby Carrots w/ Ranch Dressing for dipping

Chips – Cheetos & Frito’s

Bottled Water for the adults and V8 Juice Boxes for the littles.

Cake – Ella picked all of the flavors and I must say, she’s a girls after my own heart. Chocolate cake with strawberries in between the layers with Vanilla Buttercream icing. Yum! And of course, it was princess. =)

The Apparel:

The girls had matching t-shirts made by The Tutu Fairy (I also got Ella’s first birthday shirt here!)

The Favors:

I made all of the favors myself. After seeing decorated sugar cookies all over the internet and finding out that it was about $3 PER COOKIE for your basic sugar cookie, I said screw it, I can do that. I found the most amazing (if you ask me) sugar cookie recipe and learned about royal icing. (I wish I had taken a picture of the pink cookies, the tip that I used for piping the purple ones was too fat and they ended up looking a little sloppy.) Each child got a 1 for Aubrey, a 3 for Ella, and a crown for Princesses. =)

I also made each child a crown and a wand. The girls got to choose from pink crowns with purple “jewels” or vice versa and a Cream star wand with either pink or purple star center. The boys got a golden Kings crown and matching wand, let me just say, the boys crowns were a pain in the butt to sew!

(These are the boys crowns, I unfortunately did not get a good picture of the girls wands. I’ll try to take a picture of Ella’s soon and add it in here)

Was this the most exhausting thing that I have planned since my wedding? Heck Yes! Would I do it all over again to see Ella’s face light up! Hell Yeah!

Look for a post tomorrow all about the girls Well Checks!
