My 4 year old daughter asked for a princess party for her birthday. She wanted everything to be pink and gold! She chose Princess Aurora since she wears pink :). I didn’t even know who that was until I searched and came to know it is Sleeping beauty!
This was an outdoor party in the park pavilion. This was my first time decorating an outdoor party! There is a long list of decoration fail which is a topic for another day :).
The dessert table and all other picnic tables were covered with linen looking plastic table cloth with table skirts. I bought the gold sequin runner to cover the seating area on the dessert table. I usually do everything DIY but this time I bought cake stands and Happy birthday banner. As long as it was pink and gold, It was good to go!!
I made all the big tulle pom poms for the dessert table and as centerpieces for other tables. This was kept in a mason jar wrapped in gold duct tapes. Never forget to put something heavy in the mason jars! Mine kept falling down from wind!
Here are are the list of things I bought for this party.
- Linen looking plastic table cloths and table skirts.
- Gold sequin runner
- Cake stand
- Happy Birthday banner. The one here is sold out. This banner will also look great for princess birthday parties.
- Mason jars and duct tapes are from Target.
My daughter helped me make the treats for her friends. Great project to make with your kids and make them involved in their party! We made Marshmallow pops dipped in white chocolate covered with pink sprinkles, wafers dipped in white chocolate covered with gold sprinkles. Amazing cake and cupcakes were from Amrutha’s cake corner. Having few pink and gold chocolate coins and gum balls rounded off the dessert table.
I had bought a big Princess Aurora backdrop for the dessert table. Instead of using a stand, I tried to just hang it with pillars in the pavilion which was a total disaster! I just took it out and let nature be the best backdrop for the party :)! Big shout out to my friends for helping me set up the party!
I didn’t have to plan any activities for the kids. All the kids got water sprays instead of water gun, big bubble wands, beach balls with treats as a party favor. They used all of these at the party to play and run around. I would have added few side walk chalks to the party favor which I totally forgot at the last minute!
This Princess photo prop was super fun for kids to take photos instead of a photo-booth backdrop. If it is an indoor party, add painting a wooden castle bird house activity. This is super fun for kids to take home as party favors which looks like their own castle! Here is my tutorial for the same.
Come back for the tutorial for tulle pom pom soon!
