When you’re almost 4 and your brother spends his birthday in Disney World, the obvious thought is that all birthdays from this point on will be in Disney World. Not so much sweet girl, not so much… even though I wont lie, I’d be on the next plane sitting next to Minnie and Mickey for brunch. When asking Reeve what she wanted to do for her birthday (realistically), she was adamant at having it at our house with an under the sea theme, then mermaids, then Tinkerbell, then fairies. That made me a little crazy… there are 19 kids in her class and at this point, you’re supposed to invite the whole class. 50+ people for my 4 year old at our house. I don’t think so. We ended up inviting just the girls and a couple other special people. It was a BEAUTIFUL day and we couldn’t have been luckier with the weather.
Kid parties can be really expensive out, and doing parties the way I like to do them can be expensive in haha. I got put on a birthday budget and found SO much good stuff at the Dollar Tree. Plates, napkins, a tablecloth, wings, wands, banners, cute plasticware that looks really swanky and all of the supplies for the fairy gardens. I also hit up Michaels for my moss table runner, and the gorgeous fairy houses I used as centerpieces. It wouldn’t be a party without an Amazon order though. My main tablecloth (pink cloth, and gorgeous in person) flower crowns, which ended up being about $1 each; and butterfly catchers, to catch morning dew drops, ofcourse. AKA Bubbles.
I served sausage and peppers, baked ziti, fruit, veggies, chips and salsa, a cabbage/kale salad and Uncrustables PB&J and Nutella sandwiches. The cake and cupcakes came from Sams Club Dover, and the lady who took my order surpassed what I was expecting. I showed her a pretty picture of a pink cake but she really did it up with the sprinkles. Thanks Dee!
Invitations and cute little signs came from the Etsy shop IWatchThemGrow. Printed and put in dollar tree frames!
