Princess Party: Aubrey’s 4th Birthday Storybook Celebration (Part 1).  Bibbity Bobbity Boo!  How about a Storybook Princess Party?  I’m sharing the first part of my daughter’s birthday party today.  Be sure to check out the Castle Tutorial, Crown TutorialPrincess Party Activites and Storybook Tutorial that coordinate with this design.

When it came time to plan my daughter’s birthday party, I had completely planned to go a different direction.  I was in full planning mode when Aubrey announced she wanted a Princess Party.  When I asked her which princess, she politely told me in her very matter of fact way: “All of them.”  All of them?  Her reasoning, of course, was that a TRUE princess wouldn’t leave anybody out.  Makes sense, right?

So being the crazy momma that I am, I switched gears and set out to create the perfect princess extravaganza.  I knew I wanted to showcase each princess, but I didn’t want it to just be about their dresses or their crowns.  I really wanted to highlight their individual stories.  I designed the party and the printables around a storybook with the different signs, foods, games, etc. being storybook pages from each princess story. To tie it all together, we made the large Storybook Centerpiece for the Dessert Table.Table 1

Today, I’m gonna share the fabulous food and some of the decorations.  All the food was inspired by the different princesses and their stories.

I used Aubrey’s Disney Princess Animator Dolls to help display the different stations around the party.  We also built an entry way castle facade to match the large play castle we set up in the back yard. It was great for setting the tone of the party.  Check out the DIY castle tutorial.
