We had a Cinderella party for our little princess as she turned three. I enjoy collecting items for the party and making as many of the decorations as I can as a special touch. We had the girls dress up as princesses and made pillowcase knight costumes for the boys.
Disney's Cinderella. I love the look of rosettes and had fun figuring out how to incorporate them into the projects. They were the base of my birthday banner, the magic wands for the girls, and on the favor bags.
The feel of the party was to be magical and special for my little princess. I wanted it to feel magical.

I love the birthday banner. It was what started this whole process. I really love how it turned out. I try to make a special banner every year for my kids to keep. I am really pleased with how it turned out. I also loved the Knight costumes. I think they were just the right thing to help the boys not feel so left out at a Princess party.
If you purchase simple items at Michaels or other craft stores on clearance, you can make a collection of usable items to weave into your different parties like vases, candle holders, etc...
