This party was sponsored by Walmart and American crafts, I created all the decorations and food and can’t wait to share it with you ! #DisneyBeauties #CollectiveBias
My FAVORITE Disney movie as a child was Sleeping Beauty! The incredible medieval inspired backgrounds, and Tchaikovsky’s amazing score? just lovely and oh so magical! So I was SUPER excited when Disney announced they were releasing Sleeping Beauty Blu-Ray and DVD!
So Parties start with a theme, right? A Royal Princess SPA party was perfect! Totally girly and fun, and hand on. For the colors I went with classic Princess color, Pink, more Pink, Purple, Blue and Yellow. When I was shopping I noticed the Chalkboard wrapping paper and thought… BACKDROP!
As usual I went BIG and I’ll be sharing full tutorials and recipes all week long. I started by making a list of the Princesses and coming up with food items for each of them. I think I enjoy the party planning and brainstorming more than the actual party itself sometimes (although I do love seeing the party come together so that’s not totally true).
I made the most AMAZING Biegnets for Tiana, seriously just like Downtown Disney… The batch made a ton and my kids ate the extra’s all day (even good cold). Then of course Blue Magic Wands from the Fairy Godmother in Cinderella (the kids love helping dip the pretzels) and my MOST favorite “poisoned” apples from Snow White (actually candied apples, the kids didn’t love them but the adults did).
For Merida I wanted to come up with something representing the Will O’ the Wisps, so pretty blue and glowy and floaty… but what? I made Cotton Candy Divinity candies! And I think Jasmine was the HARDEST one to come up with a fun food for. I finally settled on Golden Domes… I know it’s a stretch… The golden dome tops of her Castle? Made from Oreo Truffles.
And Arial was easy… Water bottles! Since I was going with Chalkboard signs I used some of the Chalkboard wrapping paper and wrapped them around the bottles and used a chalk pen from My Minds Eye for the writing! I have ALWAYS hated my handwriting but I’m in the middle of a Calligraphy class from IStillLoveCalligraphy.com so I decided to go for it, I still have a long way to go, but it had the feel I wanted!
And you guys know how much I love pinata’s! This is actually our 2nd pinata in a week (we had one for Baby Boy’s 3rd birthday too). Who doesn’t love pinata’s? and watching these little girls try to break it is ALWAYS hilarious!
A HUGE thank you to our party guests for coming and spending the day with us! I have made some amazing local friends through social media, and it’s always fun when we can get together personally and introduce the next generation together!

The chalkboard wrapping paper was perfect and I used ton’s of tissue paper to make the balloon string tassel’s along with the tassels strung across the backdrop! And of course Princess Costumes, crowns, nail polish and of course the Sleeping Beauty Diamond Edition DVD Gift set (my kids have always loved the bonus materials)
So who is YOUR favorite Disney Princess? And what recipe or tutorial are you the most excited to see this week?[riview showtitle=always tags=disneybeauties size=150x150 lightbox=0]

This whole thing turned out so great! My little princess was in heaven. I think she had a beignet in each hand the whole time. Yum! The Sleeping Beauty cake is amazing! I love what you did with the pink/blue splatters. And it tasted amazing, too. 🙂
Mmmmm going through my blog comments always reminds of recipes I haven’t made in a while, now I want beignet!
Simply gorgeous! This entire party is every little girl’s dream come true!
