A Princess Party for my girl!

My sweet Hannah Renee turned TWO earlier this month. Although most of my friends consider me a "girly" person, I don't like glitter and I don't like character-themed parties. I'm a vintage-fabric, handmade party kind of girl. Somewhere along the line, however, I decided that I'm a GIRL Mama. I needed to fully embrace the Princess themed, purple glitter and gemmed tiara kind of party for my super girly girl. You know what? I had a great time and I actually LOVE how it turned out! Not to mention that my sweet Hannah seemed to fully enjoy every minute of her special day!

Sofia the First... Bri and I have read this book fifty-bizzilion times. I have to admit, it's pretty cute book and show on Disney Jr. We think Hannah looks just like the little Princess, who is as sweet as can be--just like our girl! I bought the crowns at Target in the party aisle. The book was from Target too. I bought the adorable star wands at Shop Sweet LuLu.

The cupcakes were made by a dear friend from our church. She did a wonderful job! I ordered the custom topper printables HERE. I already had the cake plates and I just used glitter scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby to make them pop!

I punched out lots and lots of circles from scrapbook paper and sewed them together with heavy-duty thread. We love our new Pottery Barn chandielier and I loved that the confetti garland brought attention to it!

The paper medalions weren't as easy as I thought they'd be. Lots of glitter everywhere and we ended up stapling some, while using hot-glue on others. It all came together though... thanks Casey!

I'm super excited to show you the Poufs above the drink bar! My friend Monica worked her crafty magic on those and I absolutely LOVE how they turned out! They're just tissue paper and twine and I strung them up with heavy-duty thread, and used a bit more confetti garland too.
The Mason Jars I always have on hand, and my Mama ripped strips of purple fabric I had laying around. I bought the stripey straws at Shop Sweet Lulu.

Our little princess! Hannah's big present from her Daddy and I was a customized chair from Pottery Barn Kids. We really wanted her to have a special place to sit to watch her favorite Disney movies... especially since baby sister was getting a whole lot of attention around her Birthday.
We are so incredibly in LOVE with this child. She brings so much joy into our days. She's sweet and kind, and loves to cuddle and give kisses!

She's growing up so fast! She speaks in full sentences and hilariously refers to Mama and Daddy as Brian and Candace sometimes. She spends her days "cooking" and loving on her baby dolls... my little Mama. She's so good to Livi, always kissing her and bringing her a binky. We are SO blessed to be given the gift of raising this precious girl!


  1. Looks like I'll be hiring Miss Monica to hook me up with some awesome poufs for A's party this fall!
