A Magical Disney Princess Halloween Tea Party

I L-O-V-E to plan parties and weddings.
Seriously, just about any reason, any occasion will do!
I love the magic and happiness that can be created
through some well thought out plans, a few perfect decorations...
and of course great guests!


I recenty had the pleasure (and it was a pleasure!) to shop for and plan a Disney Princess Halloween Tea Party for my daughter and her friends. On Wednesday we celebrated a magical tea party with some real life princesses.


For weeks my daughter has been excited about this party, watching Cinderella, and playing with the Royal Ball Augmented Reality 2.0. She has embraced all things princess and loves dressing up like her favorite princess and attending the royal ball using this app. You can download the app for your princess by searching "Disney Princess Royal Ball" in the iTunes App Store or Google Play store. You can also read more about the app and my path to purchase on Google+

It was so fun to watch the girls arrive in their "Princess Best"  and ready to enjoy the entire princess experience. We even had a "tween" Princess join us!


A few of my plans veered from the original idea due to time constraints and, most importantly...I have learned one thing...when young children are happy doing one thing...let them keep doing that one thing! So we skipped the craft and let their imaginations take over instead.

  The girls were so enchanted  playing with all of the Princess dolls we pulled out. Belle, Jasmine, Merida, Rapunzel, Jasmine, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, and few Cinderellas joined the real life girls to celebrate.


I just had to decorate and create an environment perfect for a lovely group of princesses.
From the ceiling I hung miniature tissue paper "flowers" and groups of various ribbons hanging down (I just paired 3-4 different ribbons in coordinating colors)


I set the table with a simple white cloth and then used Disney Princess Fabric as overlay. I did not hem the fabric (so I can reuse it!), I just ironed a "hem" all around the length of it (2 yards).
I pulled out my glass plates (like a glass slipper...get it?),
flatware and plain white cloth napkins.
This party also gave me a great excuse to buy some of those cute mason jar lids!


Each girl had a miniature white pumpkin on her plate with her name tattooed onto it.
The perfect princess place card if you ask me! (tutorial here).


For the centerpiece, I pulled out a cake stand and placed a pink Cinderella pumpkin on it...LOVE...I wanted one of these pumpkins so badly and this was the perfect reason to buy one. I placed lengths of ivy (cut from the garden) around the base of the cake stand and added a couple of miniature blooming plants, with the pots wrapped in ribbon.


The table looked perfect and the girls sitting in their princess dresses and looking absolutely adorable were the cutest thing EVER!




A few of the girls, I mean Princesses. I tried to get a good shot of each girl...a few f the photos were too blurry...so sad!

Once the girls had all arrived we sat at the Princess Table to have our tea party.

Jules helped plan the menu too.
Turkey croissant sandwiches
PB&J sandwiches
Fresh pineapple
Mini carrots
Apple slices and caramel
Berry punch with raspberries 

Check out the tea cup tutorial!!

Then, we enjoyed chocolate mouse in Edible Tea Cups,
topped with whipped cream and pearl "sprinkles.
AND
(We were so lucky)...One of the girls fathers is a master pastry chef
and brought us pastries too! Such a sweet treat!

I just had to make some Princess Pretzel Wands too!

Once the girls ate, I turned on the Cinderella Blu-Ray and the girls were eagerly anticipating the viewing of this classic movie. The girls played with the princess dolls and enjoyed the movie and then, the clock struck 5 and the princess went back to being young school children! But they left with a special princess cup full of princess goodies I found on my shopping trip!
