Molly's Princess Tea Party

Saturday was the BIG day in our house...the Princess Tea Party finally happened!  Molly would ask everyday when her friends were coming over, and they finally did. 

Here is what we did...
First, we dressed up like a princess
 Someone else wanted to dress up, too!
 Then we took some more pictures
 All the goody baskets set up and ready to go...
inside them were...
Pink Feather Boas
White Gloves
Big, gaudy rings
Containers to make body glitter gel
Little Princess Fairies that were pre-made
2 Candy Princess Bracelets
 Each one had a crown on it with the first initial of the little girls
 Our little table we borrowed, it worked great!
 Where most of the party was
 The gift/cupcake/craft supply table
For those of us who do not have a cool cutter thing, 
I bought these pre-cut shapes and wrote on them
 I was going to order a cake, but made cupcakes instead
 All the craft supplies ready to go
 The infamous pinata!
 And another picture
 First activity-making crowns and wands

 "Pin the lips on the Prince Frog"
It was pretty funny watching them try to pin those lips on
 The pinata, it's all fun and games until someone gets 
slammed in the eye...which happened at our party!
 Princess Lunch and Tea Party time!
 PB&J, melon, strawberries, cheese stick and pink lemonade
 Picture time!  We are going to send these out with our thank you cards!
 Playing musical Princess chairs
 Cupcake time!
 Present time!
We also played hot potato with Princess music, but I was getting lunch around and we didn't get any pictures of that.  And we made body glitter for them to take home with them.  It was fun!  We used Aloe Vera and non-toxic glitter, and mixed them together.  It turned out cute!  Molly had a blast!  She pretty much just thought it was fun having her friends over, so we could have planned nothing and she still would have had fun!  I enjoyed the party planning and prepping a lot, but I now know why people rent a bounce house or go somewhere!

The best parties we've had have been right in our own home. This is why I'm not thrilled about Sarah begging me for a ChuckECheese party in January.
I love the gift bags and homemade body glitter idea!

That looks like a great party!! They are so cute at that age!! We've had a variety of different parties here at home.....ones where I had lots of stuff planned, ones where they just played on the waterslide.....they're all fun to do and you're right, as long as they get to have their friends over, it's always a fun time! But, going to the bouncy place was so super easy this year. Ha!
