2 weeks ago we celebrated Molly-May’s 4th Birthday with a little party at a local Soft Play Centre. She invited 10 of her friends for a fun Saturday afternoon full of dancing, soft play fun and of course some yummy cake to round-up the celebrations! And every good party requires some good decorations right? Thankfully with the help of Party Delights who have an amazingly huge range of pink and especially princess themed balloons and decorations on their website I transformed the party room at the venue into a princess wonderland for Molly-May’s party!
We had princess bunting, swirly hanging decorations alongside a helium gas canister for some round foil balloons and lots of latex balloons in different colours with all the princesses on it! But my absolute favourite was the personalised banner which is 2.5ft x 1ft (they also have a 6ft x 2.5ft available). There are over 20 fonts to choose from and next to Birthday Princess and your chosen name there is a pastel blue castle which is the perfect size to put a picture on top of it! I decided to get a banner without her age so I can reuse it next year with a different picture. What I loved about this banner was how sturdy it is! This isn’t a cheap think paper print out banner but a really high quality thick soft plastic like banner which will defiantly last. The print detail of the butterflies all around the banner is really stunning and Molly-May was over the moon that she had her very own Birthday Castle:
And here is the finished banner with the added picture all hung up for the morning of her birthday:
The venue also supplied some party bags but having found with previous venues that there can be a little bit crap I decided to make my own and put whatever I get from the venue inside it too! I was actually really surprised that their party bag consisted of a cute plastic backpack, a pen with a notebook, a pencil case and a little bracelet (all with the branding of the venue) way better than I was expecting! For the girls I added some sparkly princess toy wands which are also from Party Delights as well as some Disney sticker sheets, and a pack of Haribo sweets. The boys got a matchbox car, some Cars stickers and some Haribo sweets too (Finn got Pokemon cards which I found in the cupboard because I run out of sticker sheets):
I wanted to match the party bags with Molly-May’s Disney Princess theme so I sourced Pinterest and found some super simple DIY Princess Party bags where you only needed various Disney Princess & Prince (half body) print outs and some different coloured paper bags which made up the “dress part” of the princess:
You can check out my Princess Party Bag Board on my Pinterest for the various heads I used and a couple of more if you want to extend your princesses to Anna & Elsa too!
The kids and adults loved the Party bags and Molly-May was really happy with her princess party room which is what I was hoping for after all it was all about our not so little girl turning 4 years old! Now I have less than 5 months before I start planning her big brothers 8th birthday bash which I probably wont be able to top but I guess I can try, right??
