Once upon a time, in a land far, far away (or maybe just down south in Houston), a sweet little princess and her mom asked me to help them plan a princess party full of shimmering details, and oh so much fun. And OH, SO MUCH FUN we had with this party! We decided on a pastel palette of pale pink, icy blue, yellow and lilac, and used a princess silhouette and our custom patterns throughout the whole party.
The photography by April Pizana is gorgeous and captures the beautiful the details of the party.
When guests arrived, they were greeted with two princess towers made out of balloons flanking the front door, with a pennant-style welcome sign. The foyer held a lush, ombre rose centerpiece and guests were immediately invited into the “Fairy Godmother’s Dress Shoppe” where they “shopped” for dress-up clothes, magic wands, jewels, crowns & tiaras, etc. The table was set up like a stylized dessert table, with a custom-designed fabric backdrop. There were Princesses milling about, and face painting each of the guests.
The kids table was set with a custom blue striped table runner that we custom designed with the princess silhouette on each end, white Chivari chairs that were accessorized with colorful stars, and a centerpiece that was to-die-for: dense rose vases (wrapped in gold glitter paper), held ribbon-wrapped poles and a pennant banner that soared above the table. Milk bottles were dressed up with glitter washi tape, and each placesetting held a “make-your-own-necklace” kit on our cello bags with custom toppers.
Guests were treated to a delicious lunch buffet, set up in the dining room. Decor included a large princess silhouette cling on the mirror, large rose centerpieces in white urns, and coordinating food tent cards and napkin ties.
The dessert table stole the show! The table was draped in pink satin, and flanked by two oversized pink balloons with hanging tassels. The custom fabric backdrop featured our pastel star pattern and Alexandra’s name with a glittered crown. A princess cake stood center stage, flanked by cookie “magic wands”, cupcakes with fondant gold crowns atop them, candy necklaces and bracelets, colorful macarons, crown sugar cookies, and various candies. The table was accessorized with our coordinating Cake Plate Clings, food tent cards and candy jar tags, as well as pink striped bags with our princess sticker for guests to fill to the brim with candy to bring home.
A horse-drawn carriage was the ultimate surprise and gave the children rides around the neighborhood. The party not only turned out just beautifully, but it also created such a magical experience for the children!
