Happy 5th Birthday Princess Tea Party

My oldest daughter turned 5 in early January.  She wanted to have her birthday out at like BounceU or somewhere like that but I could not believe the prices of those places.  I decided to rent a little room at our local community center and do a girly Princess Tea Party.  We had make-up, dancing, finger foods, marshmallow pops and tea cup cupcakes!  I did not get to use my Cricut for anything, I wanted to make centerpieces but things with my husband have been tough and between him and the 4 kids I just ran out of time.  Luckily my super craft friend Stephannie ( is always amazing!  She made the cutest birthday banner and the MOST adorable little purses that had a lip gloss and nail polish in them.  She is the BEST!

As you can tell from the pics pink was the theme :)  I tried to find or make candies/snacks with the pink theme in mind except for the actual food (mini sandwiches and hotdogs in crescent rolls).  The girls really seemed to enjoy the party, what can be better than make-up, dancing and lots of sugar!

The table was set for 12 princesses to have a nice tea

I found a cute idea online to use a necklace as the napkin ring.  So then I thought of course they need a ring and bracelet to go with it :)

Of course there was dancing (that mys girl in the pink-she takes her dancing very serious)

And time for make-up

And time for crafts, this is my youngest Moo Moo

Here are the cute tea cup cupcakes with little princess crowns on top,
on the right on some cute marshmallow pops I made, it was my first time
but they were easy and a big hit

My Princess had a special crown cupcake holder and princess candles

Here is my big girl giving me the candles and my little girl always helping


We did a silly pic of Ally's friend "drinking" her cupcake :)

 Well now onto getting ready for teacher appreciation day!  I am going for simple this year but still need to get it done by the week of the 27th so I better get on it!

Thanks for stopping by, have a crafty day!
