Liesl’s 4th Birthday – A ‘Sofia the First’ Inspired Party


A royal "Sofia the First" inspired lavender and white bash for Liesl's 4th birthday!

Design Inspiration

Liesl loves Sofia, as do most 4 year old girls, so she asked me to have a "Sofia" party. I'm not really into the commercial aspect of this type of theme party, so I used just a few licensed "Sofia" items, and did the rest in my own version of Sofia!  A design motif that I used throughout the party is 4-part circular pattern on Sofia's ball gown.  I used this design element throughout the party - on the cake, flower vases, invitations, and chair sashes.

Decorating Style

classic, clean and simple

Favorite Items

I loved Liesl's Sofia inspired apron!  I also loved the glittered mason jars with the same Sofia design.  And of course, the cake!  It was a labor of love, and took about 8 hours for me to decorate it, but I was happy with it in the end.


Shop early!  The $1 bins at Michael's and Target can be your best friends!  I snagged all the mini frames for the food placecards for really cheap!

And - if you see something you like and it doesn't match your party theme - buy it anyway! Anything can be spray painted to match!!

    Where did you find the emblems, like the ones on Sofia’s dress, that were used multiple time of decorative paper fans and banners?

    Love the color and dress theme throughout, where did you find the caste and Sofia oversize decals for the walls? Looking for something similar but for Sleeping Beauty :)

    I found them on zulily during a flash sale – they were white and gold and I spray painted them silver.
