Once Upon A Time…

By: Amanda Magnus

Once upon a time…that’s how all good stories begin right?! Well, this is the story of Princess Ella’s third birthday party. Princess Ella came into this world on December 8, 2015 at 12:54pm. Her parents were overjoyed at her arrival and have been so blessed over the past 3 years watching her learn and grow.

Princess Ella has developed quite the personality over the past 3 years. She at times can be dramatic but where she gets that from is still up for debate. 😉 But she is also very loving as well. So when she requested a princess party we couldn’t deny her.

Her parents quickly got to work planning the royal guest list and the food and decorations. The food consisted of Enchanted Punch, Belle’s BBQ Smokies, Snow White’s Poisoned Apples, Gus’s Meat and Cheese Tray, Cinderella’s Pumpkins and of course a princess party wouldn’t be complete without Cinderella’s Castle.

Cinderella’s castle used this cupcake stand from Amazon. It not only looked cute but it worked great for the cupcakes and made a beautiful display.

The Royal Decorations

The next order of business was creating decorations fit for a princess! Of course there had to be a birthday board filled with all of the princess’s favorite things! 

Some of the other party decorations included Disney Princess decor from the princess’s baby shower! This was fun to be able to use these again. 

It’s always nice to have a place to take pictures so I took these frames from Micheal’s and turned them into princess themed frames! They will double as decor for her bedroom now that the party is over!

I also found this adorable pink Cinderella carriage that I used to decorate the buffet to make an area to take pictures. 

The Royal Celebration

Princess Ella thoroughly enjoyed her big day! She had so much fun with all of her family and friends. She had a beautiful dress complete with a crown to wear for her big day. 

She was so excited to rip into her presents and had fun showing off her new slippers. We will have to work on royal etiquette and teach her to not lift her skirt up so high! 🙂

And after presents and pictures came cake!

The princess had a wonderful day and was so happy everyone could come celebrate with her!
