So my daughter, Juliet, when asked, wanted a Spur party. How does a party-mad mama with a head full of dreams settle on a spur party? So after much persuasion, she decided that she’d love a Disney princess party. Do you know that there are 6 Disney princesses??? Now how on earth do you merge all of those together? I did try for a few days until I realized this would be a massive task, I would have preferred either a Beauty and the Beast or just a Cinderella party, each of those being so rich with possibilities! I asked my little princess to tell me who her favourite princess was, and eventually she decided on Rapunzel and I was so thrilled, I could work with this! And so the preparations began….
Juliet was certain she would definitely want some of her little boy friends at her party this year, since last years’ Mermaid bash was for the girls alone. Luckily Rapunzel has ruffian and thug friends, so this worked out well! Since there were just so many ideas for the boys aswell as the girls, I decided to do two separate stations for the boys and the girls, separated by the main dessert table. On the boys’ side, I mimicked the Snuggly Duckling tavern, home to the ruffians and thugs! Aswell as being adorned with sword, shield, and gold coin butter biscuits, pan and pirate-gold choc-covered oreos and 3D shield boxes filled with mini marshmallows, the boys were able to fill their felt Flynn Rider satchell party bags with heaps of loot, purely for them! The princesses were not allowed to steal the ruffian loot, which included little velvet drawstring bags filled with gold chocolate coins, pirate binoculars, eye patches, hooks, thug teeth, moustaches, felt swords, Viking helmets and slime tubs.
On the girly side of things, the girls were able to fill their beautiful felt bags with Rapunzel braids, magic flower glitter hairspray, palace combs, make-up, lipgloss, make-up brushes, nail polish, dainty little rings, bangles and necklaces, aswell as pretty felt flower hairclips. I had two very brilliant girls available to braid the girls hair in a special deTangling braiding station, which was such a hit with the girls and produced jaw-dropping results!
All of the kiddos were also able to add to their bags little darling felt Pascal chameleons, Pascal party blowers, and take the coolest Maximus stick horse home!!
Now we all know Rapunzel loves her art, and so does my Juliet, so it was inevitable that this would be an art and craft party too! I created I central art station in the middle of the venue, where each child would locate their setting with a personalised name tag on little easels, and waiting there was a cupcake for each child to decorate, and then a canvass to paint with paints and glitter. I had a personalised art apron made for each child and this station surely was a hit, with the best cupcake and work of art rewarded with beautiful gifts!
Furthermore, I had a stunning Rapunzel Tower designed to be used for photos, and the kiddies loved posing with friends! It was a hit with the adults too!!
Outside there was jumping castle for those kiddies wanting to work of their sugar high, and a Pin the tail on Pascal game and also a Maximus apple picking game, where kiddies popped a red balloon ‘apple’ to win a prize!!
One of my favourite additions to this party was the Royal Palace Candy Cart, so beautifully made by my husband, adorned with 18 jars of sweeties and sweetie bags for guests to fill upon leaving!
In all, such a gorgeous party, so much fun to create, Juliet was absolutely thrilled with it and sharing in the sugar and excitement and crafts with her little friends.
Now its time for this mama-bear to get a bit of rest, although my heart is a little sad the magic of creating this party has come to an end……..until the next one!
