Gabby's 2 Year Old Princess Party

She had a ball!

Her Grammy (she calls her "May") made this dress for my niece for a flower girl dress. We decided it would be lovely as G's princess dress.

Here they are eating some jelly beans out of ice cream sundae glasses that I used on the table.

The decorations....

Each chair had a wand and a bow. Both came from the Dollar Tree...total cost, about $1.50

Table cloth, paper crowns and the hanging thingies from the chandelier all came from Hobby Lobby. Not sure how much it cost...I stopped keeping track by the time I bought this stuff! But I love the iridescent purple and the hanging crowns and castles added just the right touch.

And THE CAKE!!!!

It turned out sooo pretty! It was a lot of work decorating it myself (blog post to come), but it was worth it! And I think Gabby tried to sneak a taste or two!

We had lots of activities. My cousins let me borrow their Fisher Price bouncy house and the kids loved it! My sister-in-law Deana agreed to do face painting. She's so talented and the kids had a blast with that! And We decorated sugar cookies. That was a big hit and I think I will do it again because it was so easy and took up a chunk of time. LOL But they also played in the yard, in the sandbox and in the little playhouse. It was sooo much fun!

Here are some pics of the fun!
