Disney Princess Birthday Party: The Sparkle Station!

glittered gold frame with free printable sparkle station sign

If there are 2 things every princess party needs, it’s SPARKLE and Dress-Up! So with that in mind, we designed a Sparkle Station Activity Table for our Disney Princess Birthday Party theme.

The table was filled with lots of inexpensive dress up items for the royal guests to have fun with, plus a “Bling out a Party Hat” craft complete with glittered initials for personalizing their creations!

The Inspiration

Even though the overall princess party (styled for Dream Parties by Hallmark & Disney) encompasses several of the Disney princesses, Cinderella in particular was a big inspiration for this table.

Macy (my 3 year old daughter) has been watching Cinderella a lot lately, and I realized that sewing and dress up really are a huge part of the story – even before the Fairy Godmother arrives! So the presence of the little sewing spools, bows, and dress form were actually inspired by Cinderella’s first dress and the adorable movie scenes with the mice and birds trying to help get her ready for the ball.

Cinderella herself also makes a cameo on this table – via a pop-up tabletop decoration from the Dream Parties line, as does Rapunzel. I thought it made sense for her to make an appearance near the HAIR accessories! ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

  • “Swagged tablecloth” made from a (pinned) bed sheet + acrylic beads and tulle bows
  • Embellished dress form centerpiece with homemade bubble skirt and tulle bow
  • Paper Rapunzel tabletop decoration with dress-up hair extensions clipped to her skirt!
  • Free printable party signs & “SPARKLE” banner

princess party - embellished dress form centerpiece

When I stumbled on this decorative dress form at HomeGoods (which started out with a simple gray/white fabric body on a plain cream stand, btw!), it reminded me of when Cinderella’s first dress was hanging in her room, ready for improvements before the ball. I knew we could transform it into something special for the princess party, but it turned out even cute than I’d hoped!

Jacque even made an adorable “bubble skirt” for it with craft tulle and leftover fabric from the sheet used for the dessert table headboard. The sparkly tulle bow in the back is actually my favorite detail…

Scattered table decorations: Inspired by the sewing scenes in Cinderella, mini wooden craft spools were wrapped with colorful yarn. And acrylic “diamond” gems added lots of extra sparkle!

“Sparkle” Banner: free printable banner with starry backgrounds and princess crowns

Bird & Branch Jewelry Stands with beaded necklaces and sparkly bracelets for playing dress up!

Cinderella and Rapunzel paper dolls with pretty tulle skirts. These are Pop-Up Table Decorations from the Disney Dream Parties collection. I simply slid them on top of cans to keep them in place. Rapunzel had playful pink and blue dress-up hair extensions clipped to her skirt. This seemed like a fitting place to display them! ;)

Bling Out a Party Hat” Station: We set out fun embellishments – like rhinestones, sparkly stickers, and glittered letters – that guests could use to decorate and personalize their Disney Princess Party Hats.

Pink painted dress form: This HomeGoods find (which started out as a plain gray dress form!) was painted with pink fabric paint then dressed up with yarn, a Sparkly princess skirt (fashioned from tulle and extra fabric), and costume jewelry necklaces.

Yellow swag “tablecloth”: This is actually a twin bed sheet (from Target). We created a swagged look by simply pinning portions of the cloth up with safety pins, then embellished the look with pink acrylic bead strands & sparkly tulle bows. The acrylic bead strands are leftover from a project a while back – they started off as part of a beaded curtain.

Sparkly Disney Princess Dream Party {+ Free Printables}

Princess Ariel Chair Back

I’m super excited to share our latest theme from HWTM with you and hope it makes you feel SPARKLY all over! We really put some thought into trying to make that happen. ;)

This “Sparkly Disney Princess Birthday Party” is a collaboration with the brand new Disney Dream Parties line from Hallmark and Disney, and marks the first time we’ve styled a theme around any sort of licensed character. And since 8 different Disney princesses are actually included in the Princess Dream Party line, it would probably be more accurate to say “characters”!

The whole point of the Dream Parties line is to make your life easy, with ready-to-go products that feature the characters your little ones love and REALLY want to see at their birthday party. Easy-peasy, right? On the flip side, however, I know that our HWTM audience leans very DIY and loves seeing those types of ideas, so I appreciate that Hallmark was open to having us dream up a party that features a nice mix of both. I hope this post leaves you inspired and feeling like you can have your princess partyware and your DIY cupcake toppers too. ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

  • “Jasmine’s Oasis” Drink Station with DIY “Magic Carpet”
  • Kids Chairs adorned with Disney Princesses + sparkly ribbon & rhinestones
  • “The Royal Birthday Ball” Welcome Sign + lots more FREE PRINTABLES! (click here to download)

Huggies “About to Pop” Blogger Baby Shower {Event Recap}

About to Pop Baby Shower Theme

Earlier this summer, I had the opportunity to attend a fun blogger baby shower event in NYC and lend a hand with some of the party styling. As a SoCal girl myself, I’m not exactly down the street from Manhattan, but give me a good excuse to visit NYC and I’m always game… especially when there are other bloggers and a PARTY involved! This was a whirlwind 32 hour trip from San Diego to NY and back, but sometimes quick adventures are necessary… especially when you’ve got little ones waiting at home. ;)

Popsicle-Inspired “About to POP” Baby Shower

The event was hosted by Huggies® and Tend by Glam, and celebrated the launch of Huggies Baby Shower Planner, which is totally geared around baby shower inspiration. They are also currently hosting a PIN IT TO WIN IT sweepstakes with the chance to win a $1000 Baby Shower – see details at the bottom of this post.

Lauren and Elyssa from Glam did a fantastic job pulling together the kind of baby shower that most women would LOVE to attend… highlights included mini massages (yes, please!), a creative and non-cheesy activity, and some seriously amazing food and drinks – like Strawberry Popsicle cocktails/mocktails and gourmet Mac & Cheese! I worked with them to add some of our popsicle-inspired “About to POP” baby shower theme flair to the party… and also tried my very best to match every single color in the party with one dress. ;)

Jennifer Sbranti - Hostess with the Mostess founder

Here’s a pic of those Strawberry Popsicle drinks I mentioned above – pretty amazing presentation, right?!

Can’t forget to mention the Blueberry Lemonade mocktail either, which was equally gorgeous & tasty…

Onesie Decorating Station

Whatever your opinion on baby shower activities may be, having some sort of group activity for baby shower guests really helps to break the ice – especially when most of your guests don’t know one another already, as was the case here. The level of chatting definitely picked up when everyone was congregated around the Onesie Decorating Station with paint brush in hand! (more…)
