{Real Parties} A Princess Party Full of Pink & Gold

<span class=

I had the pleasure of working with a former client {the boutique firm I used to work for planned her nuptials} on her daughter's first birthday party. Katherine came to me with a vision of pink and gold and anything and everything fit for a princess! We worked together for several months to create a dream come true for Katherine and her sweet daughter Ava...


<span class=

Wedding Flowers by Lisa did a beautiful job creating the gorgeous centerpieces and "A" welcome wreath as well as the stunning high chair backdrop which you will see soon! A pink carpet was brought in to create a royal feel!

Katherine was expecting a large crowd, so in addition to a candy table, we also need a large cake with other sweets to choose from. Katherine worked closely with The Sweet Boutique Bakery to create the royal cake. The bakery also created the amazing cake pops and crown sugar cookies.

Throughout the party space, princess wands were found on tables, the high chair backdrop and even on the favors.

My jaw literally dropped when I saw the high chair area completed! The ribbon colors were perfect and the addition of the wands really made it pop. The backdrop was AMAZING and Ava's high chair was adorned with a garden rose garland.

Pink tulle poms from Heart to Heart were hung from 3 different chandeliers at the country club.

We did something a little different on the candy table. Instead of labeling the jars with tags, we topped each glass jar with a large bow custom made at Michael's. The candy selection was displayed on a 8x10 pink sign created by Kelly of WH Hostess who also created the invitation and other party signage.

Balloons were everywhere at this party! Karl of Balloon Masters always does a phenomenal job of creating balloon art.

Bright Star Productions produced a hot pink wall decal that read, "Ava", which was placed on the large window that greeted guests as they walked into the room.

Signs created by WH Hostess were present at all of the stations {son cones, cotton candy, face painting and balloon twisting}.

<span class=

Guests enjoyed train rides during the party. To dress up the trackless train, I hung a pennant banner designed by WH Hostess across the middle car.

Little guests left the party with bubbles found in tin cans by WH Hostess and tied with a star bubble wand found at Hobby Lobby.

Having a princess themed birthday party is a great idea to make your daughter and her friends feel like a princess for a day. The decorations, invitations, and activities you could do are endless. Having the right princess party supplies can add more fun and excitement for the special birthday girl!
