Our sweet little guest of honor.
This was my one last chance to throw a princess party (she's almost too old for so much fuss) and it was the most planning fun I've had in a LONG time!
This party was from a few months back. Since then I've learned so much more and would have done a few things differently if I'd only known (why didn't y'all tell me sooner???) like design, photography, party favors, etc. But I also did a lot of things right AND the girls had a blast! So it all shakes out, right?
Our welcoming sentry's (brothers) checking everyone in on the guest list. THEIR idea to wear suit jackets & ties with their t-shirts and gym shorts. Haha! I *LOVE* it!
Each guest must make a wish and throw a penny in the well (chest).
No one enters until they've been dubbed a prince or princess! (REAL sword!).
Maybe a lil sword action on the side :D
(that's another son dressed as a whomeve-it-is that handles the sword).
Once you're dubbed, you get ADORNED! (Dang I wish I had a close-up of how cute these crowns were...they were feathered, like the boas AND jeweled. Cutest dollar store crowns I ever did see! Hehe)
NOW you're royalty!
The girls embellished crown door hangers and foam picture frames with lots of glitter & jewels, with the help of our older daughter. A picture of each child was taken while they sat in the throne and later put in the frames they made.
My daughter-in-law helped the girls make flower hair clips.
GAMES GAMES GAMES.....and my favorite was the dress-up relay. So hilarious!
A table fit for a prince and princesses!
(this is the best pic I have of the food over on the sideboard??? NOOOOOO!!!)
(trust me, it was beautiful)
Chocolate roses (for Belle) made by yours truly.
Cream-filled cupcakes.........sooooo yum!
My lighting-camera-skills needs some work. :)
The royalty are ready to eat!
And it's not a decent Arizona party if it doesn't end in the pool. ;)
