Beautiful Bright & Cheery Tangled Birthday Party

Anyone else not at all tired of seeing lovely Tangled inspired parties?! They’re always done so well. Case in point: check out this incredible Bright and Cheery Tangled Birthday Party, which was hosted by mom, Kelly Farmworth, and beautifully photographed by Meredith Gradishar of Zoom Theory Photography. From Rapunzel’s magnificent tower – complete with cascading layers of yellow tulle to represent her magical golden hair – to a couple of very special guests that stopped by to celebrate, this is one party that’s very easy to get all tangled up into!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Pascal the chameleon cake pops, Maximus the horse rice krispies, & a hand-painted Rapunzel backdrop
– Tons of details from the movie, like hanging vines & flowers and the sun emblem in the outdoor banners & tablescape
– Beautiful princess dress for the birthday girl + matching dress cookies & ‘Tangled Tower’ ice cream cone cupcakes
– Faux grass & flowers table top, tissue paper ‘forest’ ceiling & a fondant crown topped Rapunzel cake

PARTY DETAILS as told by Meredith & Kelly

I was so happy to photograph Sydney’s Tangled birthday party (she turned 4)! They really went all out and threw her a beautiful party! The backyard was decorated with its own castle-lookout, hanging lanterns and grassy flower table top, which I think is adorable! There were plenty of spots for photos like a vine wall, a boat and cottage window! There was a pretty themed dessert bar and I really loved the hanging vines inside as well to make the space really feel like the movie. Once the party started, a real tangled character couple came in to tell stories to all the kids.

Mom (Kelly) says: Sydney has loved the movie Tangled since she was 2!!!!  By far, Rapunzel is her favorite princess. My inspiration was the sun. I personally did all the lanterns and pennants. I hand cut all the suns and hot glued them on the lanterns and pennants.  They had many fun activities, pin the nose on Flynn, a treasure hunt with Rapunzel, craft stations and fun story time with Rapunzel and Flynn.

Gorgeous! One of the best Rapunzel birthdays I’ve seen and I’m picky! All of the staging makes such an impact! Love the ceiling in the party room and the tower is outstanding.
