Wren's Princess Party

 

We had so much fun last week throwing Wren's party! It was a super duper fantastic Princess-filled day, and she couldn't have been happier to have all her friends over.

The day before Wren's birthday I made a quick trip over to see Ramona at Sweet Social. She has so many fun party items, it was hard to choose just a handful of goodies but we settled on some fun forks, paper straws, candles and a few other little items.

 

Then we whipped home to get our bake on! Wren LOVES to bake so this was nearly as exciting as the birthday party for her. We took two boxes of white cake mix and made ourselves an ombre cake!
 

It might be one small step for man, but one GIANT leap for Holly's baking.
 

Once the cake was all ready to go we got our craft on with some of the paper straws, sequined strands and a few funny pink pompoms.
 

We glued the sequined rope into the straws and hot glued 4 pompoms on in honor of Wren's 4th birthday!
 

Then we stuck it into our cake!
 

Wren really loved this so we decided to do a few more creations involving the straws, pompoms and some craft paper.

More flags for the popcorn bowls.
 

I found the table cloth at Value Village, it was the perfect peachy pink but it was for a round table. But it was only $3 so we bought it anyway and just swagged it over the table.
 

Our final project before the festivities began was filling up little goody bags with jewelry and treasures and setting them out for our guests.
 

To keep my princesses busy I put out an assortment of princess costumes I have picked up at thrift stores here and there (none of them were over $2) and let the girls get dressed. Then I set out a stack of blankies and chairs for them to create a 'castle'. I was worried it wouldn't be enough to entertain 9 four year olds for long, but they all LOVED it. There were squeals of delight coming from their creation all afternoon.
 

Can you believe there are actually children in this shot?
 



It seemed like it was over in the blink of an eye, and while I had so much fun getting it all ready for them I was more than ready for a big slice of this at the end of the day! 


Keep Calm & Have Cake might just be my new motto.
