As part of a compensated series through Collective Bias, I’ve been sharing my obsession with stalking following others as they post about Disney Dream Parties in hopes that I can be this awesome for my own kids’ parties coming up in the next couple of months. Here’s one more. Swear, I’m through stalking. I’ve got what I need now.
Because now I’ve found this and the rest of the plan is coming into place for Bug’s birthday celebration.
You know I’ve been planning for Bug’s 7th birthday next month. I’ve been sweating it. It has to be big. I have to look like a hero.
Why am I making this all about me?
Let me remind you that I’m trying to throw the perfect Disney Princess dream party for Bug. So I’ve been Googling and stalking looking through sites to find the perfect ideas to make this party fabulous but simple. Between the last one I found and this one from Rachel at Bubbly Nature Creations, I think I have all of the cheats ideas I need for the perfect party for my ever growing Bug (stop growing up dang it).
I keep reading how “simple” this amazingness all is and I’m feeling a little more confident that I can pull it all off. I’m reminded over and over again that throwing the perfect party is just about balancing between store bought with a little bit of craftiness (hey, even I can be a little bit crafty). For instance, these cute little towers? Here’s the secret:
“One of my favorite decorations was the turrets I placed behind the cakes. I came up with the idea, but my mom is the one that made them! 🙂 She made the 2 outer turrets using Country time lemonade canisters covered with the Hallmark Disney Princess napkins. Then for the top we added a Hallmark Disney princess party hat! For the middle turret she made it out of poster board since we wanted it taller. She just taped the poster board up like a tube and covered them in the napkins just like the other two.”
“Inside the house we had the cake and food table! We added the lights and balloons, but everything else was made using the Hallmark Disney Princess party supplies! I think it turned out awesome! My girls especially loved the Disney DecoPac Princess Cakes that I ordered from the Walmart Bakery! It was such a relief to have the cakes already made ahead of time and the girls LOVED them.”
See, even Rachel cheats a bit. I think that’s awesome! She made a cupcake stand out of the plates she bought at Walmart. Brilliant.
And with a few other items she bought at Walmart, plus a little more craftiness that she was sure to share, her party was a huge success. That’s all any mom can hope for. That’s all I want. I can do this. Stay tuned guys because with all of these fabulous ideas, Bug’s party is going to be AH-MAZING and I can’t wait to share it with you!
