{Real Parties} A Sweet Princess Party

My friends, Kristen and Allison of Lullaby Lubbock, are two of the most creative people I know! I have two recent parties of theirs to share with you! First up is a sweet princess party with lots of charm...

Like many moms, Kristen tried to avoid the princess party, but she knew it was bound to happen. Avery insisted on the theme for her 5th birthday, so like a good mom, Kristen went with it!

Kristen made the adorable bunting that she hung up all around the house.

The party was from 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm, so she just served a few sweet treats. The pink thumbprint cookies are from Celebrity Bakery in Dallas which I looove.

How CUTE are the cupcakes in a jar?! Kristen followed the tutorial from Cakies and filled the jars with carrot cake from a recipe on MADE.

To dress up the cupcake jars, Kristen simply cut out pink paper to fit the lid and then topped with a silver crown using a craft punch from Martha Stewart. Then, she wrapped jute around the lid and tied a pink spoon to it.

My favorite part o the party just might be these castles!!! Kristen found the cardbaord castles on Amazon which the kids decorated with stickers and markers.

The invitations were just as cute and heartfelt as the party itself. You can see more pictures and the how-tos on the invitation, HERE.
