princess and the frog/baking party


 my daughter asked for a
princess and the frog party
and she loves baking...
so i decided to combine them.
since tiana loves to cook,
it really fit.

the colors were lilac and green apple.
i wanted to incorporate a lot of
cupcake wrappers & bakers twine.


i also used a silhouette of tiana
throughout the party.

The Cake:



The Details:


 i made this for the front door
by gluing cupcake wrappers to
a large "5" that i had cut out.
{go here see my inspiration and get a tutorial}




circle garland and hanging balls
 

the white balls are made from cupcake wrappers.
the purple flower ball is made out of streamers!


for part of the girls' favor, they got to
create their own cookie mix.

i started jars with the basic ingredients
then had them each choose what goodies
they wanted in their mix.




the whole display...so mad it's blurry!
 





"cupcake toppers"
one is the tiana silhouette and
the other is purple jewel.
i love cupcake toppers!
more importantly, the kids love them.
but i rarely serve cupcakes at my parties,
so i have to come up with another way to
use them.  here, it's in grapes...


cocktail picks
i used coordinating papers
and tiny glitter frogs.


chocolate covered marshmallows


the table before the baking started!

i saw this cute idea for
attaching flowers made from
cupcake wrappers to the hats 

Activities:


the kids got to add their names
using sticker letters i got
form the dollar bin at target.
{tip: i put the letters each girl needed
for her name in a cupcake wrapper
ahead of time so there wasn't any searching}


making beignets!
these are tiana's specialty!
we found a tiana cookbook which
had the recipe.
it was so easy and a perfect
recipe for the girls to help with.
 

aren't these little rolling pins cute?!
they are from hobbyy lobby and the
best purchase i made (also very inexpensive).
they kept all the girls involved.



creating a one of a kind cookie mix!


the little bakers
 

modeling the cute apron my sister
made her!
{available in her etsy shop:



Favors:
 

in addition to the cookie mix,
the girls each got a tiana barrette.
i got them from Crystal's Creations.


it was a great party!

so you had them create there own cookie mix and is that the cookie mix that you used with the rolling pins, or did you use something different and they took the created cookie mix home?

Tia Mi said...

Congratulations! Beautiful party. And your invitation gave me inspiration! Thanks for sharing!

we made beignetes (donuts) at the party. that's what they are rolling. the cookie mix they took home but they got to pick which "extra ingredients" they wanted to add. they added 3 {1/4 c} scoops.

Having a princess themed birthday party is a great idea to make your daughter and her friends feel like a princess for a day. The decorations, invitations, and activities you could do are endless. Having the right princess party supplies can add more fun and excitement for the special birthday girl!
