When Stefanie said, “Princess Party”…. I said, “I’m in!”  When she sent me the beautiful images she captured…I said, ”I’m speechless.”  Thank you…for sharing your gift…Stefanie…and thank you…for letting me indulge …in the belief…that I have shared mine. XXO

A Royal Birthday Celebration Fit For a Princess ~

Once Upon a Time…

There lived in the Kingdom of Kirkland…a pretty and

precocious Princess named, ‘Mira’…about to turn three.

Princess Mira…summoned Princesses across the land…to partake in this petite royal celebration…’Scroll’ down…and watch the Fairy Tale unfold…

The Royal Setting ~

We rolled out the tabletop ‘white carpet’…of butcher paper. For at this royal gathering…writing on the furniture is not only acceptable…but proper ‘Court’ etiquette!

Each royal plate…sat atop a dove-tailed runner…an embellished vintage inspired crown…marking the Royal Highness…seat of honor.

Sparkling Sour Patch Wands for the Princesses…

And Swords for the Princes in attendance…

Pointy Tiara Headdresses at each place setting…

…Dotted with Gems…

….A Petite dovetailed banner marks the Royal Cupcake Table

….strung across wire….and wrapped around wooden dowels…

The Royal Treat Bar ~

 

….Simple white bowls rimmed with crowns hold delectable treats…

….proving too tempting to resist…even for a pretty Princess!

…Cellophane bags…ready to hold the sweet royal treats….the seals on a spool of tulle…

And to wash it all down….Princess Magic Potions…

….so named for Mira’s regal friends….’Snow white’… ‘Bell’ … and ‘Cinderella…’

….And this Fairy Tale Story….

In a most Royal Setting…..

 

Of Course…has a ‘Happy Ending!’

The princesses decreed…the ‘fairest in the land’…via a dollar…craft store mirror

transformed with glitter paint and gems….(transformations happen a lot in Storybook land!)

….Or perhaps…the tag line should read…’Mira, Mira.!’

Ciao,

Monica

….The Fairy Godmother

The End.
