I usually make my own cupcakes for my kid’s parties. They don’t take long, homemade frosting makes them taste delicious, kids could care less where the cupcake came from, and there are so many things to stick in or on a cupcake to make them festive!
For the princess tea party, I found these cute little mini wands in a pack at Hobby Lobby. With coupon, I got them for less than $2. I don’t think they are meant for cupcakes, but they worked! We washed them up and put one in each girl’s treat bags so they could have a mini wand for their dolls.
We had lunch at the party (mini ham & cheese sandwiches, mini pb&j’s, goldfish, fruit kabobs, and cheese sticks). In trying to keep things “fancy”, for dessert, we had cupcakes, vanilla meringues (from Trader Joe’s), iced pound cake squares, and ice cream cups. There were little tiny bites taken out of each item, so the girls did a little sampling!
I set the table with our china tea cups and the girls drank pink lemonade and sparking white grape juice (also from Trader Joe’s) out of them.
In addition to eating lunch and dessert, the guests wore princess dresses, we made bead necklaces, decorated crowns and wands and castles, read “Pinkalicious”, and whacked away at a castle pinata. It was so cute seeing all the little “princesses” giving the castle a good swat!
As each guest was leaving, Kate gave them a pink rose from the centerpiece.
All in all, it was a great day for our newly turned four year old! Oh, the joys of having a girl!
I played around with a fun little app which made these pics sparkle a little bit-I thought it was appropriate for the theme of the party!
I made one more little party decoration that I will show in a separate post! Happy Monday!
