On Saturday my precious, little Pumpkin turned 3. I tried to keep her 2 a little longer, but she just refused. So we celebrated turning 3 with a purple princess party!
This girl loves purple and he loves princesses! So, when I asked her what kind of birthday she wanted this year there was no hesitation. Princess!
I kept the food simple. I ordered a platter from Jimmy John’s and made chicken fries.
There were purple grapes and strawberries.
Purple cauliflower, carrots and tomatoes. Princess Goldfish, pasta salad, pretzel thins and hummus and Go Go Squeeze. And there weren’t many leftovers!
Dessert is my favorite part of the party! I love to bake! So of course we had cookies.
These were so fun to decorate! I enjoyed coming up with different ways to decorate the crowns and stars.
This was probably my favorite cookie, though.
And of course there was cake!
I decided to go super simple on the cake, but I really like how it turned out! The hardest part was finding a crown without a Disney character on it! Thank goodness for the Halloween section! I also make cupcakes which I just frosted with white buttercream and topped with silver sprinkles and a purple chocolate crown.
I also put out some cake balls that I made with leftover cake and candy melts and a little tin of dark chocolate Kisses (because they have purple wrappers!). And I picked up this gorgeous frame at IKEA and then picked up a wood letter and spray painted it silver, then adhered lots of big silver glitter to it! And then we raided the Christmas decorations for the lights.
For craft time I picked up these fun colored paper crowns from Oriental Trading and I also ordered some sticky gems for the kids to decorate. They had so much fun putting their personal touch on their crowns and then wearing them for the rest of the party.
Of course Pumpkin picked the purple crown! And even though she had a pretty silver crown from lace I made her for the party she wore the paper crown more.
After crafting and eating dinner the kiddos were getting super antsy for cake! Including this princess dinosaur!
We lit 3 purple candles and sang happy birthday. The birthday princess sang along, too! She was so cute! And she couldn’t wait for us to finish the song before trying to blow out the candles.
After cake and ice cream, there were presents.
And my sweet girl was spoiled rotten by her friends and family! She loved everything and is now in princess heaven! She and Cupcake had a great time playing with all the new princesses yesterday.
I can’t believe my baby is 3!!!
