Molly's Princess Party

I had the honor of helping my Godsister, Krista, with her daughter Molly's 5th birthday party. Molly's wishes were pretty simple - girly princess with a pink and purple color scheme.

The invitation design was one that I adapted from an invitation I did for my niece almost 10 years ago. The great thing about doing it again now is HOBBY LOBBY. That place is amazing and I found so many fun things to use to make the invitations.

I started with a piece of stiff felt, added some tulle with sparkles on it, embellished it with trim and jewels and topped it off with a glitter covered flower at the waistband.

The party information was on the back.

The birthday girl loved her invitation and told me I needed to make lots more - she wanted to make sure everyone had one.

As a surprise I decided to make tiara cookies. My friend Jessica gave me a great recipe for a cut out friendly cookie dough and my husband was awesome to help me. Neither of us had ever done these types of cookies before so we just started and figured it out as we went. He rolled out, cut and baked all the cookies.

What a guy!

After the cookies were baked I outlined them in hot pink and Michael filled in with white icing. I then added the pink pearl decorations, one by one, with tweezers!

The finished product!

After the icing dried, we bagged and tagged them and they were ready to go!

At the party I placed them all on a tray which the birthday girl used to share her cookies with her guests at the end of the party.

I also dipped pretzel rods in white chocolate and rolled them in pink and purple sprinkles for the Princess Wands and blue sprinkles for the Magic Wands.

I printed out these labels for the baby water bottles that Krista had already purchased. I think Molly liked seeing her face on all the water bottles!

For decorations I made tissue paper puffs and we had lots and lots of balloons. Yes, that's my husband manning the helium tank in the background of the balloon picture. He is the best helper!

And here is the birthday girl blowing out her candles!
Thanks for letting me a part of your birthday celebration, Molly! I love you so much!
