Success!! Ugh! I can’t believe it’s already over. With my two week vacation (which I’ll be writing about soon) just over days before my daughter’s fifth birthday party, I pulled it off! I have to say, this Cinderella movie party may be one of my favorites, because it wasn’t over the top, rather simple and beautiful.
Let’s start with the centerpieces. I made Cinderella glass slippers with gold butterflies and a blue pillow for a few of the tables. I stacked them on old books from my antique book collection. I dusted off some of my fall decorations and used the mercury glass pumpkins I have for Thanksgiving. I grouped these together with some movie poster photos that I printed and framed.
I tied tulle bows to the curtains and to the backs of all the chairs as well.
I bought a pack of 10 inexpensive white lanterns online and glued blue butterfly wall decals onto them. All ten lanterns with the butterflies cost me less than $10.00! I hung them all around the yard and on top of the food and drink tables.
I also made these pretty accordion paper butterfly lanterns to hang inside the canopy tents.
For the food table I borrowed an old CD tower from my best friend and tied a clock onto it positioned to 12 midnight. I added some butterflies and a glass slipper inside.
I also lined the food table with a burlap runner and fake green mats I found in the dollar bins at target for a fairytale type feel.
For the food we went all out with fruit, veggies, turkey pinwheels, In-N-Out Burger, and Chick-fil-a, our family’s favorites.
I am no baker, so I ordered blue and white cupcakes and a blue ombre cake. I added some toppers that say “Have Courage and Be Kind” from the Cinderella movie. You can print them here. I also added a glass slipper to the top of the cake and put it in a cage.
It was a fabulous time filled with love and laughter. We played games and ate a TON! In case you missed any of my tutorials or printables for this party, you can check them out here:
