Pink Princess Party Part 2-The who, what, when, where, and how-to

As promised I gathered all the how-to info from the girls Pink Princess Party!

I will start off by saying I am a hoarder…I love to go thrift store shopping, and a lot of times I buy a lot of crap for no reason what so ever. BUT when a party rolls around I am able to put all the crap to use :). So I would say 90% of the stuff I used for the party was bought either at a thrift store or on clearance! Otherwise my kids would be eating canned beans for the next 6 months due to party expenses… 🙂

I think it goes with out saying that my goal for this party was to make it pink PiNk PINK! That was including the food :)!

So here it is! If there is anything I missed or anything you would like to know just comment below or email me! 🙂

Sweet Pea’s Frilly Dress: I found this at a kids boutique in Las Vegas // Boo’s Lace Dress // Matching Headbands

A lot of my decorations were either re-used from last years birthday, OR I bought them on clearance or at thrift stores. For example, the pink crystal circles in the vases were only 50 cents on clearance at Hobby Lobby :). The sticks were a house decor item that was in my garage not being used. I spray painted them pink and used them for the center pieces.

I also used $1 store table clothes and draped them from the ceiling. Note: if you use a staple gun…it will make holes! 😉

The chandeliers were made from lampshade that I bought at the thrift store. You just take off the fabric from the lampshade, and wrap ribbon around the wires.

I also tied beads that I stranded, ribbon, and tulle bows.


These candy filled jars I originally saw on Pink Pistachio. I of coarse gave them a pink makeover! 🙂 I used old baby food jars that I had been saving, spray painted the lids pink, and glued silver crowns on top.// Silver Crowns from Party City.

The pink drink table was thrifted, and I seriously contemplated whether or not to paint it because I loved the original! We spray painted it pink and my mom dressed it up in fancy tulle!

The mason jar cups were tied with a piece of tulle and a strip of burlap. We then made tags to go along with it.

Princess Crown Stamps // White Tags // Pink Stripped Straws (I found them at marshalls, 100 for $5!)

Cinderella Stamp // Princess Cookie Cutters

Princess Cake Mold //

Princess Wands from the $1 store // Fruit Princess Wands

Strawberry Basil Chicken Salad: I didn’t really measure but I added chicken, strawberries, dried cranberries, grapes, chopped basil, and strawberry puree to make the dressing pink. I also added mayo and a little honey and dijon.

Goat Cheese Bruschetta

Wood boards from Michaels // Paint Pen from Michaels // Wood Stain from Home Depot // Yard Sticks from Home Depot

I think my princesses, included me, are all partied out for a while! Maybe when they are 16 right?? 🙂 I have to give a special thanks to my wonderful family that helped a lot, especially taking care of the kids while I turned my parents house into party central. And I’m sorry dad that I used a staple gun in your walls to hang almost everything. I’m such an awesome daughter… 🙂

Now…Let’s get back to some healthy living shall we??
