This year she asked for a "Princess Themed Bounce House Party", and we eagerly obliged. I decided that I would add some homemade flare to it as well.
First, I went to Etsy to purchase "Princess Themed" invitations and found these lovely ones by Inkberry Parties and Hailey quickly approved of them.
Next, Hailey's Birthday Party Attire! A few blogs ago I shared that I was teaching myself to crochet. I took that to an entirely different level with the handmade dress I created for Hailey. She donned the ultimate Princess Birthday Tutu dress with a crocheted top, tulle bottom, silver sequins, beads, and organza trimming. Hailey selected the Heart-Shaped Brooch to top it off.
Of course, no Princess outfit would be complete without a crown! Hailey helped me create this lovely Princess crown out of a lace she chose. We used a fabric stiffener, modge podge, and fine glitter to create this masterpiece fit for a Princess.
We decided on a few more Handmade touches to her party. For her party favor bags we gave each of the children a Tupperware container of The BEST Homemade Playdough , one of my handmade bottlecap necklaces (Princesses for the girls, and Spider Man, Toy Story, or Cars for the boys), and some store bought items to round it out.
For a final handmade touch, we again turned to Etsy in search of thank you notes to coordinate with the princess-theme. We found this lovely one by DIYParties and with that, we were ready to party!
Hailey's Princess Themed Birthday Party was as she said, "Just what I wanted!" Her friends and family that attended seemed to love our Handmade twist on things. Perhaps I should start to think of more great ideas for next year. EnJOY~
