Princess Birthday Party

Once upon a time, in the suburbs lived a princess. She hosted a birthday party for all her friends and family. . . .

Even some knights showed up in their best preppy casual attire.

The tables were adorned with plastic jewels from the party store. . .

. . . and carnations. For the mother was cursed with a black thumb and could only keep carnations alive. Roses all died in her care.

All the princesses made bejeweled headpieces out of plastic headbands, rhinestones, and glue dots.


The princesses mother was known to be a little crazy. She stayed up to the wee hours of the night gluing rhinestones to plastic forks. . .


. . . she also hand glittered all the letters for the birthday banner.


Small tea sandwiches were served on plates adorned with tulle and rhinestones.

Even a special cake was made by the royal family baker, Auntie Susan. She went to great lengths to make the cake, even the crown was edible.

And they all lived happily ever after. Even their son who refused to be in the picture and locked himself in the bathroom.

The End

What a beautiful party! I love all the extra touches. And such a gorgeous cake! wow.

I had to laugh at the last part though. I hope he wasn't upset about something, and him hiding was just in fun. My son went through a faze where he did not care to have his pic taken. Nowadays I just wish he'd take pics without goofy poses and faces. ;)

LOVE it! And all the sparkly details. :) One year my oldest son refused to eat the cupcakes at his sister's party because they were pink. lol

Jessica,

He was being silly more than anything. My son is also going through a phase where he makes funny faces for all pictures.
