Once upon a time, very recently, this little princess turned 4, and her mom threw her a pretty amazing birthday party. There was a princess beauty parlor for hair, nails, makeup, and face painting. There was a photo shoot for each little girl (by yours truly); tutu’s and sparkly snowflake tee shirts; a stunning birthday cake; and so many enchanting swags of tulle and fairy lights — it was fit for a princess.
Love is an open door 😉 Balloons by Malissa Troutwine of Balloons by Malloons. She’s great, I’ve used her a bunch.
The living room was transported to Arendelle with swags of tulle, blue and purple sateen, fairy lights, and snowflakes.
Face painting was provided by Katherine Murphy.
Mom brought in her sisters for nail painting and makeup.
Mom (left) and her beautiful friend wove the girls hair with curls and ribbons.
And another sister came to take photos (I mean me. Did I not mention this party was for my niece?) Meg (mom) picked up the backdrop on Amazon.
Ollie makes a pretty sweet Olaf, don’t you think?
Not sure, but I think the girls ate more marshmallows than Olaf did.
Oh, and there was some twirling. Because how can you wear a tutu and not twirl?
Grandma laid out a magical table covered in sparkly gems and snowflakes. Everyone loved her Lego centerpiece — and the set was her gift to Caitlyn at the end of the party.
And those lovely gems were irresistible 😉
Princess Caitlyn had the perfect cake, by Amy Doubray. With a personalized sparkly snowflake cake topper by me.
I cut glittery snowflakes and number 4’s in custom sizes. Meg used them to make these fun arrangements.
I can’t resist throwing in a few extra photos — these girls are so darling! And they were in love with the cake.
After this party, Miss Caitlyn has nothing left to wish for! Oh, except for “Aunt Alinda” to stop taking her picture. Everybody’s a critic 😉
