Mom Monday {Cinderella Movie Party}

0comments

Reminiscent of when I hosted a Mad Tea Party for the Alice in Wonderland movie, we are going to have a Cinderella Movie Party. I cannot begin to explain the excitement that is happening in my house over the upcoming release of the Cinderella Movie. Cinderella happens to be Piper’s favorite princess so this is pretty big time. In celebration we are going to invite a few of her friends over for a little party and then go watch the movie together. Here are some inspirations that are filling my mind right now for the party…

Use what’s around you like these adorable leaf details placed on each place. I love that there is a variety of leaves used too.

Don’t forget the candles. These mismatched candles are placed down the center of a long table providing mood lighting and the most magical touch.

Love this simple but brilliant idea to place a throw pillow on each chair. So pretty too.

How great is this casual yet chic setup. A low to the ground table is placed in the grass and guests sit on the ground upon blankets. Love the twinkle lights too.

For Piper’s birthday party this year we had close to 50 adults and 20 children. It was a lot of people so we wanted to do something simple but still delicious for the food. We decided to do a bagel bar, and who knew, it was a HUGE hit. Parents and kids alike delighted in creating their own custom bagel sandwiches. It was really fun. Here are a few easy steps to create your own bagel bar for your next soirée.
