The color scheme was easy, a variety of purples, pink, silver, gold and white. I made tissue paper pons and fans, embellished with flowers and jewels as backdrops for the area where I knew we would be taking pictures as well as behind the dessert table. I sewed by hand the satin table linen with a tulle border.
Now I know that every little girl has their own favorite princess, so we invited guests to come in costume. We had a trunk of additional dress up clothes as well as beads, tiaras and necklaces to add to the ensembles. Each girl also decorated a magic wand with their names and other sparkles.
As a surprise to the little girls, we invited Sofia herself to come and share stories and play games with us. She was so good at answering their questions about her family, animal friends (whom she has magical powers to speak to,) and the land that she is from. Wands and Wishes is an amazing, Colorado based company with a ton of real live princess visits to choose from (and they have princes and pirates as well.)
Happy Cakes of Longmont supplied us with a scrumptious variety of cupcakes, including gluten-free options. Each girl decorated her treat with sprinkles, candies and sugar.
We served strawberry milk at each place setting in these cute plastic milk bottles with patterned purple paper straws (say that 3 times fast!)
Each girl left with a Sofia the First favor bag filled with stickers, notebooks, lipgloss, barrettes and crayons.
Happy 6th Birthday Hailey!
