But in order to have the cake, we HAD to have a princess party and invite all our friends. We decided on January 19th, because the school age girls were going to be out of school. It turned out so cute!
Our feast included Piglets in Blankies (mini cocktail weiners wrapped in crescent rolls), Rascally Raspberry Rabbit Sandwiches (Raspberry jelly and cream cheese on wheat bread cut out with a bunny cookie cutter and a mini marshmallow for the tail), Fruit topped with cool whip, a chocolate covered cherry Mouse and pink lemonade with a maracshino cherry.
Everything was pink pink pink!!! We had pink tulle hanging in all the doorways, in the mailbox, on the front porch...we put pink tulle around each chair and tied a balloon to each chair. We had pink cups, pink table cloths, pink plates and forks and spoons. It had to be very girlie!
We played games...Each girl dug in a jar of rice to pull out as many rings as they could within 1 minute. I found big plastic gemstone rings at Wal-Mart and Party City.
Then we read the classic story of The Princess and the Pea. The mothers brought the girls' pillows and they sat on their pillow while I read the story. Afterwards, the girls were shuttled to another room while we put "peas" which were tennis balls, under each pillow. When the girls came back in, we had them sit on their pillow and if they could feel the "pea" they were given a plaque that stated "PRINCESS". Of course, they all felt the "pea" and all were given a plaque. They were REAL princesses!!!
I think all the little princesses had alot of fun! I know Haylei loved it. It's all she's been talking about since then!
