Princess Birthday Party

Princess Birthday Party

When I asked Little Miss what kind of birthday party she wanted, she answered without hesitation. A Princess Birthday Party!

Little Miss is your typical 3 year old girl.  She loves anything princess and dress up.  I wanted to save the Disney princess party until she was a little older, so I went with a more generic princess party.  And she had a blast!

Princess Birthday Party Food

When we party, we BBQ.

Hubby grills up some amazing chicken legs, including his own BBQ sauce.

The sides can be round up from gardens and farmers markets.

Little Miss’ favorite foods are Mac & Cheese and Watermelon, so I made sure to include those in the menu.

Princess Cake

I used a crown shaped cake pan for the cake.

To make the pink frosting, I added some beet powder to our go to frosting recipe from Can You Stay For Dinner.

And what is a princess cake without sprinkles?  I found these great sprinkles from Maggie’s Naturals that are naturally colored and made from pure cane sugar.

Princess Birthday Party Activity

What is a Twitchetts party without a fun activity?  After J’s amazing Minecraft party or V’s fabulous Summer Celebration, Little Miss had some high expectations.

So I went big…Castle big…

Yep, that’s a cardboard play castle.  Filled with princess dress up accessories.

Little Miss loved her party!  And I had a blast putting it together.

Her face was priceless when she saw the castle for the first time! The princess accessories made a great take home party favor too!

The sprinkles are great! I just ordered some for Mr Monster's party too...something with a little less pink. :-)

I know this isn't really the focus of your post, but how did you get the watermelon like that? I'm always struggling with cutting them and that looks easy!

Start by cutting the watermelon in half. Place the cut side down and then just cut a checker board pattern from the top. That's it! It is super easy! Here's a link to a tutorial that I found on Pinterest. Not only is it super easy, it's slightly less messy for kiddos! http://www.soberjulie.com/2014/07/cut-watermelon-kids/
