So I told my readers awhile back that I would recap Ava Greer's birthdays and I didn't make it past 2! So here goes! Ava Greer LOVED princesses when she was three and loved to dress up in princess dresses and glass slippers! She couldn't get enough!
Ava Greer and Heath share the same birthday... March 25th. Layla Westyn was due on March 25th! That sure would've been something! 3 in one day! Heath had advised me while I was party planning to please not have her party until after Layla Westyn was born. He knew how crazy I get at party time and didn't want me to go into labor at the party. So, I agreed and decided it was best to hold off until after she came. Layla Westyn made her debut 3 weeks early. Actually while we were out and about looking for the materials for Heath to make the castle, I started having contractions. So I brought home this precious little bundle of joy and still had plenty of time to get ready for this little princess to have her princess party.
As you guys know, I love Pinterest, so I had a 3rd birthday princess board with lots of great ideas to get me going! I also had a friend that introduced me to a friend who made super cute banners for parties. This was before I had a Cameo Shiloutte so I bought 2 banners and cupcake toppers from her. I also ended up buying the cricut princess cartridge so I could make some things myself using a friend's cricut.
The greatest thing about this party was that a sweet friend of mine and I planned together and shared all this cute stuff! Her little sweetie pie was celebrating her 3rd birthday as well.
The invitation was done by Holly and I added the little Cinderella dress.
I knew I wanted it to be super elegant. Another precious friend of mine was at home from work for a while with a broken foot and she sat, bless her heart, and cut and pinned these little chair covers! Then I sewed them up! The are precious and I still use them lots. I wish I had a pattern to share but I just made my own. Thank you Mal!
This is the castle Heath made. Such a sweet husband to do all the crazy thing I request.
The little dress Ava Greer is wearing came from Etsy and our sweet friend we planned with bought it and we just borrowed it.
Now, the food was lots of fun! I decided to make white pumpkin cake bites. I bought different sized crown cookie cutters and went crazy! I did crown sandwiches, crown fruit kabobs and crown cookies. My friend Carrie, aka THE BEST CAKE DECORATOR EVER, helped me with the cookies and the cake! She came over and we did some major team work!
I bought blue vinyl and cut out little Cinderella and glass slipper Shilouttes. We got plates at the dollar tree to make it seem like a Royal celebration. The favors were crowns and wands for the girls and we had a chest plate and sword for Paxton... Our little prince that attended!
Cinderella was amazing!!!!! I can't say that enough!!!! Amazing! The singing, dancing, cleaning, transformation into her ball gown! Amazing! She seriously ran the whole party!!!!!!
Hope you enjoyed it all! We sure did! It was magical! ☺️
