A Birthday Fit For a Princess

This past Saturday, we hosted a princess makeover party for SaraGrace’s 3rd birthday.  Can I tell you….this is what you dream of when you find out you are having a girl!!!  This party was so much fun; we’re almost sad it’s over:( 

 

It all started with the invitations.  I found these on Etsy (I’m an addict!).  They just send you the digital file and you have them printed.  Very easy, but darling!  SG loved them so much.  When she saw them she said, “Momma!  I’m a princess!”  SO CUTE!  Anyway, here they are:

Then, we got a little carried away.  We ordered her a princess outfit from Etsy (Told ya I was addicted!).  She had to be none other than Cinderella.  Here she is with her princess outfit on:

Then, we had to have the “slippers”.  Well anyone that knows SaraGrace knows nothing other than flip flops will do.  So I got on Etsy AGAIN and found these:

My sister, Kiss, helped keep the little beauties in line:

As you can see, we had a great time getting all princessed up!  We then moved to the Royal Dining Room where we feasted on sandwiches, cheetos and grapes.

She was so proud, she would say, “My Mommy made it!”  It just melted my heart!  Here is a closer picture of it.

It was then time to hand out the goodies.  Oh the goodies!!!

SG had the best time!  It was so much fun to see everyone get dressed up, including the adults.  I did manage to get one picture of Mommy and her princess:

IMG_5421 I do want to thank all of my friends that came to help!  They were makeup artists, hair dressers, nail technicians, etc.  I got to spend some time with one of my best friends from high school so that was special too!  I haven’t seen her in a while.  But my MOM was the real hero of the day.  She worked so hard, and fixed the food, goodie bags etc.  Here she is dressed as the butler:

Here’s hoping we’ll have a simple birthday next year….NAH!
