5-year-old Princess

Laine turned 5! We had a "Winter SnowFairyPrincess Party." Her friends were invited to come in their princess best. We gave Laine a new dress for the occasion. The girls danced and sang along with a Barbie dvd, played the Princess and the Pea with pillows and beads, sifted for beads in a treasure box full of rice and beads and then strung the beads to make necklaces. But the highlight was decorating their cakes. Laine was so excited to have a princess cake. I let her pick out the Barbie, she chose a ballerina Ariel, and then it was a surprise on her birthday of how it looked. Then I made little cakes for her friends and used Polly Pockets for the dolls. We had little tubes of frosting gel in lots of colors and lots of pretty sprinkles to choose from. Then of course they got to dig in and eat their creations. It was a delightful way to celebrate Laine's birthday. And then she started piano lessons that evening. She's a special girl.

Paige, what an adorable idea! I'm going to have to steal it someday when I have a little girl. I love everything about the birthday party; the cake(s), games, theme, etc. The candles kind of make it look like Ariel's dress is on fire, but she doesn't even looked phased. Oh, to be plastic. Love it!

I can't imagine my Sadie being 5-yrs-old. I've been wondering what I should do for her 1st birthday that's in 2 months. The doll cakes are fantastic—nice job!

Happy Birthday, Laine! What a fun party; I love that you let each of the girls decorate their own doll-cake-dress. I want to do that! :)

You are so creative!

Sally said...

Wow - you are an AWESOME mom! Thank goodness we have blogs, so Laine can see how nice her mom is when she's older! The cakes are adorable and the party idea sounds really fun. I may have to bookmark it for later!
