A Royal Celebration

We celebrated my granddaughter’s 4th birthday with a Royal Princess Tea Party, because every little girl deserves to feel like a princess on her special day.

Cardboard boxes, poster board, and vinyl table covers were used to make the “palace towers” to decorate the treat table.


Princess wands were created with dowel rods, tuell, and silk ribbons.


Homemade butter cookies, chocolates, lollipops, and fancy cupcakes adorned the treat table, along with the princess cake.



DSCN0274_editedI found an old candy dish that belonged to my mom in the back of a cabinet while preparing for the party. I added it to the treat table so that my mother, who passed away several years ago, would be a part of the party in spirit. There is no doubt in my mind that, if she had been there, she would have had so much fun, and probably would have been wearing a tiara!



All ready for the princess and her royal subjects!

The princess arrived in her “real” princess dress. She was so excited!


The party guests enjoyed heart-shaped sandwiches, fruit kabobs, cheese cubes, butterfly-shaped crackers, and pink tea. They made glitter jars and butterflies.


And, of course, her Super Hero brother, Bodie, was there to protect all of the little princesses!
