Four years ago, our sweet little Stella Susan was born. She has grown so fast, so pretty, and so smart. We had such a fun time celebrating her birthday Tangled style! (Which is actually very appropriate considering that this little girl also tangles her hair into huge knots with her fingers while she sleeps... another story...)
Stella loves Tangled and Stella loves Purple, so this party was just calling her name! I took a few ideas from PagingSupermom, and combined with a few of my own and I declare this Tangled party a success!
First up, the Invites. I love making invites. It's a sickness, really. I'm quite proud of these babies:
|Oh, my sweet Stella Sue! You are such a great kiddo! I love your smiles and silly grins! |
I learned several birthday parties ago that Cakes are not my forté, so Thank You to Wal*Mart for a cake that Stella adored!
We started the party by coloring a few Tangled pages. I love coloring pages at the beginning of parties. It is something fun to do while all the guests arrive and for late comers, they can just take the pages home to color. After this, we played an exciting game of "Find Pascal!" I learned something very important: Three and Four year old girls cheat. They haven't quite grasped the 'no peeking' rule. Pascal wasn't too hard to find. Finally, all the girls made a paper lantern. I sent each guest home with a small glow stick to put inside her lantern at bedtime. I love the way they turned out:
