Fit for a Princess

Princess Birthday Party - so much inspiration, lots of tutorials!
It was a birthday party fit for a princess.  Colors in pink and mauve and copper.  Golden glitter accents.  Crowns and gowns and spaces for coloring and reading.  And, of course, cake.  A cake for every prince and princess.  Laughter and squeals and hunting for golden keys.  A little group of friends.  Perfect.  Happy Birthday, Grace.
I’ve created tutorials for most of the components of this Princess Birthday Party – I hope they inspire and help you to create your perfect party for your little princess!

    Looks like a great party! I made the rose cakes too for my niece’s first birthday party and it was a BIG hit. I will definitely be using them a lot!

    Gorgeous! I just loved everything from the shoes to the mini cakes to the table linen! I would love this for an adult girl party too or a shower. Wonderful.

    I know many have asked about the little shoes used on the cakes as to how to get them. I noticed that the source was Beverly’s craft store. I did not find them there. Can anyone help? I know this blog was from a year ago, but has anyone seen shoes like this?

      Hi Laura, I didn’t see any last year, but when I bought them two years ago, they were ornaments – it should be just about the perfect time to start searching with the holiday stuff piling into the stores! Good luck!
