Fashionable Hostess Amanda S. Gluck hosts a princess-themed party — complete with tiaras and wands, a bouncy castle, and a three-tiered fairytale castle cake — for her daughter's fourth birthday.
Meet the Princess
For Reese's fourth birthday, I wanted to throw a beautiful princess party at our home. Living in Miami, winter is actually a gorgeous time to host an outdoor party thanks to the cool breeze and just the right amount of sunshine. I set the stage in her backyard by hanging lanterns by Under the Paper Lantern in the trees, creating a princess face-painting station, and setting up a gorgeous dessert buffet. The Paperless Post invitation asked all the little girls to dress as princesses, and it couldn't have been cuter!
A Royal Send-Off
Guests left the party with a customized bucket from Party City filled with little toys from the store. White buckets for the boys and pink for the girls, whose names were written on the bucket with gold paint pen. Inside the buckets were princess sunglasses, princess cameras, princess coloring books, and for the older girls mini gumball machines from Beau-Coup. Hangtags were printed online and tied to each of the buckets and read "Thanks for coming." The boys received the same goodies but in PAW Patrol theme.
