~a princess party and a mothers day giveaway~

My niece turned 3 this past week and I helped my sister 
create a princess party for her and her friends.
 My mom made this beautiful and really simple cake, topping
 it with apple blossoms off a tree in her yard.

I put together the party bags for all her friends to take home.
I got the bags, as well as a few other things from this etsy shop.

 I created the label using printable sticker paper from Office Depot.
The monogram can be customized here.
I filled the bags with items from the dollar store:

mini bubbles from the wedding section
clip on earrings
mini nail files
marshmallow ropes
princess notepads
pink candies

 All the pink plates, napkins, and cups came from the dollar store as well.
Also at each place setting, each guest got their own tiara to wear and take home.
On each plate I put a little white bucket
{also available in the wedding section at the dollar store}
and filled it with pink and white animal cookies wrapped in tulle, from, you guessed it, the dollar store.
{tiaras from there too}

 The tiara pops are from Oriental Trading, and the striped
 straws from the same etsy shop where I got the bags.
I love children's parties, they are so much fun.
I am so glad I have little nieces and nephews to decorate for now that my kids are getting bigger.

Finally, one of my dear sponsors would like to give one of you a $50.00 gift card to use in
her shop! 
This giveaway will run now through Sunday and I will announce the winner on Monday.
Please take a moment to visit Jenn's lovely shop
The Covered Porch.
You can find a ton of last minute unique Mother's day gifts here.
Leave me a comment here telling me you did so and what your plans are for moms day.
And remember, you can still enter to win the Lalicious giveaway from Haley's Cottage here!

What a darling shop. I really like the pillow covers and the notepads.

As for Mother's Day more than likely I will be with my mother and father and some more family members and my husband will be with his mother.

Lovely! We are doing an early brunch with my husband's mom and stepmom and grandmother, then grilling out at the farm for my mother. Should be a nice day!

Thanks for such a generous giveaway... I visited her shop and love the pillow covers. I will spend Saturday with my other 5 siblings having a work party for my mom. She has cancer and is very sick. We want her to have a great feel good day! I work Sunday as a waitress. It is the busiest day of the year... So relax when I get home..

Great shop! Love the plaid pillow with the barn! I'll be spending this weekend with my family (sans the hubby) - mom is having surgery this morning and will be recovering over the weekend. I'll be traveling home Sunday but at least I'll be able to take care of the woman who took care of me for so many years :-)

I visited her shop and LOVE it! So creative!

Mother's Day we're taking my parents and grandparents to their favorite restaurant and coming to our house for dessert and maybe a game of Apples to Apples ; )

The Covered Porch has the cutest pillow covers! For Mother's Day, we will go to church (probably without my son as he sleeps off prom) and have lunch and dinner out. Relaxing :)

rednest said...

I agree, really cute pillow covers! Since I just started taking a pastry class, I will be spending the first 5 hour in the baking lab!! Following that I will be spending the afternoon with my family and my mom for a backyard bbq (and eating all the fun stuff I created)!

Jennifer Alexander said...

I love the monograms and the printed goods. Thanks for the giveaway!

Mary Jane said...

I am loving the paper goods she has...I will be totally relaxing and planting some flower pots for my deck on mothers day. Then I will be able to sit back and enjoy the view from my comfy chair!
Happy Mothers Day to you!
