Princess Party

Maddie had a great birthday and she was soooo excited to be transformed into a little princess along with a few of her friends. It was so fun to see the little girls prance around all decked out. And to hear their little conversations and seeing the smiles was priceless.

I had a lot of fun preparing for her party and I knew that I wanted things to coordinate. I'm not a foo-foo-la-la type of gal so I knew that I wanted to keep things simple. You might remember the invites I designed with the crown I drew. I wanted to carry that and the colors throughout.

I found these adorable pink star suckers that looked so much like wands. The girls even pretended as if they were so the thought was perfect. I tied a simple green satin ribbon around it to decorate it up a bit. I know I've mentioned that my daughter loves lip gloss. I found a few recipes online to make homemade lip gloss and this one was perfect. So simple with only 2 ingredients: Vaseline and flavored drink mix. I used raspberry lemonade Crystal Light. Just the right amount of pink flavor. All I did was mix 2 T. of the Vaseline with a dash of the Crystal Light and filled it into these great containers I bought from this Etsy store. I then made sticker labels for the top of them and voila!
They were a hit!

I thought how fun it would be to personalize a white tank top for the girls with each having a picture of the crown I designed along with their name incorporated into it. I bought inkjet printable iron transfer paper for white items and the design came out perfect on the tank tops. These were a hit with the Mom's. :)

I filled all the above along with a few other goodies..stickers and princess gummies into small pink bags with ribbon closures. They had so much fun going through it all.

The princesses had so much fun. I know my princess did since she went to bed very early that night!!!
