Ever since May when it was Jake's birthday, Evie has been counting down to her own! And so for the last three months all I have heard about is how she wanted a Princess Birthday Party. (Right up until last week when she went to her friend Scout's mermaid themed birthday party and then she wanted to change it... gotta love 4 year olds.) So Princesses it is!
All the pretty princesses! We started off with dress-ups and jewelry, because every princess has to know how to accessorize...
"King Daddy" read a couple of princess stories while we took turns painting nails. (That is why they are all blowing on their fingers if you look closely...)
We played a game of "Kiss the Frog" where they put on lipstick and made a kiss-print on their paper, and then tried to pin it on the frog's lips. I considered just applying the lipstick and letting them kiss the frog, but I didn't really want to try to clean red lipstick off my walls if they missed...
The Tea Table. Everything pink and princess-y, including princess wands for place cards.
We had heart shaped peanut butter and honey or ham and cheese sandwiches, grapes, princess fruit snacks and pink lemonade.
After the tea party Evie opened her presents.
Then time for cupcakes and ice cream!
It was a perfect Princess Party for a pretty special 4 year old princess, thanks to all the princesses who came and helped us celebrate!
