Beauty & the Beast Birthday Party

Be our guest, be our guest!!
Welcome to Addison's 4th birthday party!
Our formal luncheon was inspired by the dinner party scene from Beauty and the Beast, my daughter's favorite movie. I decorated with tea cups and hung pearls from the chandelier. All of the girls came in their favorite princess dresses and I served pink lemonade and heart shaped pb&j's. I put fake flowers on the front porch topiaries and hung our spring wreaths with pink ribbon. I made princess tiaras for each girl and put them on the back of their chairs.
After lunch, the girls played dress up and made princess wands. I stocked this dresser full of my daughter's dress-up clothes, plastic necklaces and princess shoes and set out lip gloss and princess dust. The sparkle dust ended up making a mess, but they LOVED it! Note to self: next time, no lip gloss. :)
I set out jewel shaped stickers for the girls to decorate princess wands. We wrote their names on the back once they were done so that they could take them home as party gifts.
My friend Merideth (future event coordinator!) had a great idea of setting up Belle's library! So I laid out pillows and princess books for the girls to flip through. It was a soft landing spot for girls to plop down after all of the excitement and sugar rush.
It was a sweet party with precious attendees!
Thank you to all who helped make Addi's day so special!
Thank you to Lindsay for letting me borrow extra princess attire.

And thank you to my husband Ben, for letting me put on silly parties that make me (and my daughter) happy. I truly LOVE doing it!

  2. Wow!! Such lovely birthday party arrangements. I just liked the beauty and the beast theme. Want to have a great birthday party for my niece too that will be arranged at one of NYC venues. Will be having Alice in wonderland themed party as she demanded to have that.
