So my daughter just turned 2!! (i still dont know if there should be a happy for a sad face after that sentence.) She is in love with all things princess, so a princess party it was!! Now, I had tons of ideas for this party. Most of them turned out wonderfully. Unfortunately, the ladder we brought wasn't tall enough to reach the ceiling...so some of my decorations went down the drain. But that's ok. It still turned out great, and we all had a lot of fun! That's what it's really about right?
Now, MOST of the things I bought for this party were from the dollar store. (which, btw, is my favorite place in the world) There were a couple of things I just had to have and spend a bit more on, but the most expensive item for the entire party was the purple chandelier. which I got for $15 that I didnt get to hang anyways, and got to take back! lol....not to shabby though huh?
So heres a list of some of the things I did....
We had the party in the daycare room at a local civic center. It was super cheap to rent out and was full of fun toys!!
Each child had a craft to make for an activity. The girls had princess wands and the boys had Kings crowns. I got them all at the dollar store along with the stickers to decorate them with. They were a lot of fun to make and it was super easy clean up since there was no glue or markers or anything like that. We also, had face painting!

This was a dress up party, so ofcourse my little princess had to look amazing. I appliqued a 2 with a crown on it on a onsie, and a friend of mine made her a beautiful tu-tu! (which you can buy here) We put jewels in her hair(dollar store find) I got boa's, tiaras, and diamond rings for each girl(dollar store again). At the beginning of this party I wasn't sure if I was going to invite any boys since it was a "princess party", but then I realized all my little princess' would need a prince charming or two! I made a "prince's cape" for each boy and (from the dollar store ofcourse) got them foam swords! They all look adorable!
