Setup & Cost of a Royal Party!
May 14, 2014 | Celebrate |
My Evee is very much a PRINCESS and when prepping her big ole 4 year old bash…it had to envolve some kind of princess! Instead of just 1 princess theme, we went with a WHOLE slew of princesses…and ACADEMY of Princesses…A Royal Preparation Academy! She loved it!
The announcement idea I got from the proclamation from the King in Cinderella, I enjoyed making this invitation! With some online free scrapbook paper, a carriage image & BOOM! awesome invite!
(Cost: designed at home – Free, Printing for 20 invites = $4 @ walmart)
Then comes the decorations: a few princess caps, a crown, some accordion pin wheel/rosettes & Tissue Paper Pompoms!
I borrowed some awesome curtains that made a great backdrop for my photobooth area! Added those pompoms & accordion rosettes with safety pins and staples to make a fun whimsical area.
I am not a cake maker, but luckily I know a great person who is. I made 2 sets of round cakes, then iced them in a thicker buttercream frosting. Adding a million sugar pearls, made a lovely design. The crown we shaped out of a waffle bowl and frosted that too. It was quite yummy!
(Cost: 2 box cake, food coloring, homemade frosting – all items from pantry = FREE)
More decor was also game decor. I enjoyed drawing this Prince Naveen! I wanted to have many pieces from many princess stories.
(Cost: Poster : $.33, crayons – Free)
Of course the Pinata had to be Maleficent the Dragon!
