I am so stinkin’ excited to finally share this party that I’ve been working on for the past few weeks; Reagan and I loved hosting our own Cinderella Soiree! With some of her very best friends (and mine too), we were able to celebrate the release of Cinderella on Blu Ray and DVD with food and fun. Keep reading to see all of the precious details!
Reagan and I headed to our local Walmart for the #DisneyPrincessWMT Retailtainment Event and to pick up our copy of Cinderella. Although we were disappointed when we realized that the event wasn’t going to be happening, we made the best of it and Reagan had forgotten within minutes when I let her hold Cinderella for the remainder of our shopping trip. She also loved getting to play the Royal Ball 2.0 App as well. She was able to unlock a few more of the trigger points!
Here’s a blog-friendly copy of the invite that was sent to all of the guests. It sets the tone for what the guests can expect and is just super cute. 🙂
When the day of the party arrived, Reagan insisted on being dressed as Cinderella and I insisted on us getting a picture together before the start of the party chaos. Love my little princess!
I set the table for the guests using items that I had picked up during my shopping trip to Walmart like the Cinderella paper plates and plastic cups, but I also added in more personalized items and some printables I designed for the occasion (look for those later this week!).
What Cinderella event would be complete without a reference to pumpkins somewhere? I created this pumpkin centerpiece by transforming a blah orange foam pumpkin into this glitzy glittered pumpkin. By stacking it on top of some of my favorite hobnail glass serving pieces, I was able to add height and the large black bow I tied on added the touch of drama I was looking for.
I re-purposed some hanging candle holders into glass domes to spotlight glittered mini pumpkins and the pumpkin chocolate chip cupcakes. I used to hate those wretched
dust catchers candle holders, but now that they have new life, I adore them!
Food is a key ingredient to a successful party, especially when all of the guests are children. I served Pretty Princess Popcorn (recipe tomorrow!) pre-packaged in white lunch sacks, so it was ready to be eaten as soon as it was time to watch the movie. These also doubled as the place cards for each guest. The morning of the party, I decided the table needed one last detail, so I quickly printed each guests name on simple copy paper to serve as a place mat. Easy peasy!
The last of the food that was served were Crown Cookies. These were simply chocolate covered Oreos. The little girls loved the food and devoured it!
All of the little girls came dressed as their favorite princess and they had a field day prancing around, bossing all the boys. It was so funny to watch!
Speaking of the boys, I couldn’t leave them out of a group picture. I’m so glad that they were able to attend the Cinderella Soiree too! In case you think Cinderella might be a movie for the girls-only crowd, you are wrong! The boys loved laughing at the mice, especially Gus Gus. I love a movie that will appeal to ALL kids.
Make sure to stop back each day this week as I share tutorials and recipes on how to re-create some of my favorite parts of this sweet event!
