A Cinderella Birthday

Feb 10, 2015 | 19 comments

cinderella-birthday-party-inspiration-farm-girl-princess-7I am still dreaming about the Cinderella party we had for Paisley last weekend. Everything was perfect and the party exceeded all of my expectations. I couldn’t have done it without both my Mom and Mom-in-love and also my sweet friend Aubrey for taking all of the photos and video. I have to start planning a little before Christmas because once the holidays arrive and end, I have all but 3 or so weeks to pull everything together. Paisley has been in LOVE with Cinderella over the last year so I thought a princess party would be a perfect way for her and her friends to celebrate. I thought I would share where I got most of our decorations and the vendors we used to make this party a dream come true.

cinderella-birthday-party-inspiration-farm-girl-princess-54I will never forget the look on her face when she walked into the party. It was priceless and I am so glad that she was amazed and loved every minute.

cinderella-birthday-party-inspiration-farm-girl-princess-76I bought Paisley’s dress, “glass” slippers, and crown from The Disney store for 40% off around Christmas time.

InvitationI decided I wanted the party to be a little more vintage. My friend Becca from Jumping Jax Designs designed our invitations, signage, and silhouette prints. They turned out beautifully!

cinderella-birthday-party-inspiration-farm-girl-princess-40cinderella-birthday-party-inspiration-farm-girl-princess-39We chose a local venue in our town for the party. This lodge was the perfect place to have a big crowd and I loved the natural light. It is hard to have anything outside in February. Last year’s party we had ice and snow, this year it was above 70. Welcome to Oklahoma.

We actually sell these neat pumpkins in the store during the fall. I love them because they are so imperfect. We also played the Disney soundtrack of ‘Cinderella’ during the entire party. :)

cinderella-birthday-party-inspiration-farm-girl-princess-1 cinderella-birthday-party-inspiration-farm-girl-princess-8The whimsical table decorations were my favorite project!

cinderella-birthday-party-inspiration-farm-girl-princess-12 A friend of mine made our cake a cookies. She is an amazing artist and I am so thankful she took on this project. I couldn’t have bought a more perfect cake or cookies. You can visit her blog and see her post on our sweets here. The “three banner” I bought from a cute little Etsy shop called Paper Trail and the glass slippers are from amazon.
cinderella-birthday-party-inspiration-farm-girl-princess-141cinderella-birthday-party-inspiration-farm-girl-princess-10The cake stand is mine from Farm Girl. You may notice them from Magnolia or off of Fixer Upper but we also sell them in our store. I bought the glittered ‘3’ and wand for Paisley from The Enchanted Princess off of Etsy. She was extremely reasonable and Paisley loves her wand! I’m excited to continue to use most of the items from the party as well as pass them down to Scout. I am using the ‘3’ in Paisley’s room.

farm-girl-boutique-cinderella-birthday-aubrey-lisa-photography_0046I borrowed the lace tablecloths from my Nana. They were my great great grandmother’s. I love using old family heirlooms.

farm-girl-boutique-cinderella-birthday-aubrey-lisa-photography_0048The banner I had bought for Paisley’s room and pulled it out to use as a backdrop for the cake table. You can find one similar at The Olive Grove Shop. Her room is in these fun colors and I thought it would look great for the party as well.

cinderella-birthday-party-inspiration-farm-girl-princess-173This book was one of Paisley’s gifts from her Daddy and I. Since we are putting together a “big girl” room for her, we decided to just get a few books. We can never have enough. She has a James Marshall book for ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ and it is one of her favorites. I decided to use this as a guest book that she can look back on one day. I also did this at her Olivia Party last year.

cinderella-birthday-party-inspiration-farm-girl-princess-83The balloons are from Party City. We bought them and had our own helium tank from last year’s party to blow them up.

cinderella-birthday-party-inspiration-farm-girl-princess-1I found the Fairy Godmother from Amazon before Christmas for SUPER cheap. It’s really old and I think I paid under $10 for her. She was a steal.

Each friend got a tiara/crown, wand, a pair of dress up earrings and a favor bag full of candy. I bought the crowns and wands from oriental trading which I highly recommend because you can get a large quantity of favors for under $10.

The beads are actually dress up necklaces for the girls. Paisley’s favorite candy is candy corns so I bought these flavored pumpkins from hobby lobby as well as the gumballs. Both were on sale.

farm-girl-boutique-cinderella-birthday-aubrey-lisa-photography_0044I got the clear cups from SAMS and added stickers. I do this every party just because you can get 200 or more for $9. We always have tons left over and use them at home or for other events. The cream cake stand is mine from home and the cream pitcher is also mine and bought from Farm Girl.

cinderella-birthday-party-inspiration-farm-girl-princess-45The fork and spoon holders are actually planters. You can also get those at Farm Girl. The lantern was from Zack and I’s wedding that we have in our home. All of the platters and punch bowl were borrowed from my mom and mother-in-law. Two of the platters were cheap ones from Dollar Tree. You can find our ‘Princess Punch’ recipe here on the blog. It is a party favorite and very sweet.

I wanted to incorporate the food into the theme of the party. I bought this crown cookie cutter for $2 and decided to do PB+J sandwiches for the kids. I also did Jaq and Gus’ cheese tray. The scene where they sneak cheese behind the cat in ‘Cinderella’ is a favorite of Paisley’s. My husband and mom made the fruit kabobs that we called magical wands.

farm-girl-boutique-cinderella-birthday-aubrey-lisa-photography_0049My mother in law brought the “Royal Coach Dip.” I actually snagged this idea off of Pinterest

cinderella-birthday-party-inspiration-farm-girl-princess-16The carriage was made by my mother in law out of cardboard. If you follow me on Instagram, I posted some sneak peeks of it in the beginning stages. The pumpkins are from Farm Girl as previously mentioned as well as the small standing chalk board.

cinderella-birthday-party-inspiration-farm-girl-princess-43I bought these fun prince props from Perfectionate and the princess props from Let’s Get Decorative on Etsy. I am sure we will use them for years to come.

Paisley’s sweet friend Sadie came from Texas to party with us! You can check out her mom’s blog here. :)cinderella-birthday-party-inspiration-farm-girl-princess-69 cinderella-birthday-party-inspiration-farm-girl-princess-70 cinderella-birthday-party-inspiration-farm-girl-princess-71We had a coloring station set up for the littles too.

farm-girl-boutique-cinderella-birthday-aubrey-lisa-photography_0056Her friends began to show up and the party started. We dressed the little princesses with a crown and wand.

cinderella-birthday-party-inspiration-farm-girl-princess-165 farm-girl-boutique-cinderella-birthday-aubrey-lisa-photography_0070I also set up a costume garland in case a little princess forgot her dress. :) Paisley loves to play dress up so we had a few extras.

farm-girl-boutique-cinderella-birthday-aubrey-lisa-photography_0032My mother-in-law made her Fairy Godmother costume and dressed up for the kids. I think they were all pretty amazed. :)

cinderella-birthday-party-inspiration-farm-girl-princess-98My mother-in-love and mom are the cutest.

cinderella-birthday-party-inspiration-farm-girl-princess-163 cinderella-birthday-party-inspiration-farm-girl-princess-166After the Fairy Godmother arrived, it was time to open gifts! Paisley got some of the neatest things, including a mop and broom set {so Cinderella} from her Nana + Papa and a brand new pair of boots from her little “boyfriend,” Stran. Boots are the way to this little princess cowgirl’s heart. :)

It was the cutest and I am so thankful to have videoed that moment.

cinderella-birthday-party-inspiration-farm-girl-princess-152A HUGE thank you to Aubrey for taking the photos for me and for the sweet video she did. I will cherish them forever. :)

cinderella-birthday-party-inspiration-farm-girl-princess-172I absolutely loved this party. It was so much fun to design and come up with ideas to make it adorable. I couldn’t have done it without the help of my mom and mom-in-law. I am not sure if we will ever be able to top it. I am so glad Paisley had a blast as well as her friends. Sweet memories made.

If you missed my video post yesterday, here it is again of what Aubrey shot. Feel free to pin images for inspiration and link back to our blog please. You can find the images already pinned here. :)

    Love love love this and all the details were perfect! I was looking for a banner like that and was thinking of trying to DIY with string and material pieces. Is that all it really is? Just tied material strips? Best pinterest-y party I’ve seen in 2015! :)
