Emma Turns Three: A Turquoise Princess Party, Part 2

As promised, here are a few pics from Emma's party on Saturday.  The party decor revolved around turquoise and some complementary shades of blue, with Cinderella themed touches thrown in to delight our little Miss Emma.  You can see where we started with inspiration on the mood board here.

The flowers were arranged by me, with two shades of wax flower, chamomile and little spray roses tucked in with some gorgeous blue hydrangea.  I loved the cupcake toppers, it's just how I like to do themed birthdays - an outline or suggestion of Cinderella's dress is simpler and more palatable than a direct image I think and just as delightful to the kiddos.

The family had just moved into their new house a few months ago, I love love love the color choices they made for the walls.  Insider info: many of those were made when they couldn't be there in person to test swatch the paint choices.  Impressive, yes?

I made the birthday banner in shades of blue and turquoise floral print, it's hard to see from the dark picture (ergh limited camera skills!) but it was perfect for a little girl!  I also hung turquoise, royal blue, and white crepe paper streamers and doily garlands over the fireplace and archways in the house.

The family did all the food, which was simple and easy (the only way to really enjoy your own party, don't you think?)  Mimosas were served to the adult guests, I just love the champagne bucket and that footed fruit bowl - gorgeous!  The picture frame is from Ikea and a total steal at $4.99.

And here's the adorable birthday girl with her family (dressed in party coordinating colors - love them!)  We did giant round balloons with garlands and rosettes, the kids got such a kick out of them.

We also set up a table with paper gold crowns, glitter pens, and jewel stickers for the kids to make their own royal headgear.  Favors included a sweet coloring pack featuring the Disney princesses and a swirly turquoise lollipop for a fun treat, wrapped in white bakery envelopes and baker's twine it was a present fit for royalty.  The party was such a pleasure to design and decorate, I'm such a sucker for great kids parties!  A very happy birthday to sweet Emma, thanks for letting me in on the good times!
