Princess Party!

This weekend was my birthday... and I decided that I wanted to have a Princess Party! I mean, how can you not appreciate a reason to wear a tiara and have a wand?  I combined it with a Stella and Dot Party (which is still open) so guests had a chance to try on beautiful jewels too!

I usually have a TON of pictures, but I am on a loaner phone right now (first world problems here.. it only has 8GBs of memory!!! I hopefully will have my original phone back tomorrow!) so I had to rely on my hubby's phone, friends phones, and my camera.

For this blog, however, I wanted to share how I set up for the party and the different crafts that I had ready (there are even Youtube videos guys!)

So for my party, I knew that I wanted guests to create their own tiara and have a wand.

Making Lace Tiaras

For the Tiara station I had super fancy rhinestone headbands that I got from one of our local stores- Miz (and they were only $1.00 each!) I also had jewels and trinkets set out for guests to embellish their own tiara.

For food- I had this awesome caterer (aka- EAT... Custom Catering... my husband)  We had fruit wands, he taught me how to make strawberry roses, and we had all different types of light bites.  Of course there was red and white wine.. and a super yummy sherbet fruit punch. My favorite treat on cheese and wine nights is Kroger cupcakes, so of course I had to have a cupcake cake too!

I love that I am able to surround myself with friends that don't mind being silly with crafts and support me.  I know that not everyone was able to come, but I had SO much fun being a pampered princess for the evening! Even better it was on a budget and with things that I had in house!

Black curtain with some twinkly lights made the perfect backdrop for some photos.. even though I didn't get hardly any!
You know I love a Selfie (and look at all those beautiful ladies!)
