I decided to do a friend party for Katelyn this year. I love hosting parties, and I REALLY love planning parties. Katelyn chose the theme, and I was really excited to do a party based on one of my favorite movies too! Our overall color scheme was purple and yellow
The invites – I have a template if anyone wants it.
The Decorations and food table.
For the painting, I used the mural that Rapunzel painted above the fire place in her tower, I just used a plain poster-board and sketched out my simplified version. I hung it in Katelyn’s room after the party.
Katelyn and I had fun decorating together. We also had SO much fun making all the food.
This was our ‘tower’ out of Krispy Kreme donuts (I think I ate at least 4, I have a severe weakness to donuts.)
Katelyn’s favorite was the marshmallow sticks, I wanted to tie little ribbon bows to the sticks, but – again – ran out of time and besides, would the little kids care if there were bows? Probably not. They were just excited to see big marshmallows dipped in chocolate and sprinkles.
Our Menu was:
Krispy Kreme Donut Tower
Vanilla Cupcakes with Flowers (Rapunzel and Flynn are holding cupcakes in the city in one scene)
Tower Kabobs (Ham, String Cheese into Cubes, Colby Jack Cheese Cubes, Strawberries, Grapes, Oranges, and Apples)
Braided Hair Bread Twists
Boat Ride on the Lake Jell-O Cups
Cookies (in the shape of the sun and flowers)
Lemonade & Water
Before we ate we played a few games, and I am so, so, so grateful to Rainbow and Rachel who stayed and helped out.
We played a fishing game (because of the lake the castle sits on), a toss the bean bags into the tower, a pin the flower on Rapunzel’s hair game (which we missed), and Duck Duck Goose (came from the “ugly duckling” pub). I also had Tangled playing in the background so the kids who didn’t want to play could watch the movie.
After all the fun and excitement of the games and food, Katelyn got to open presents. All her friends were so generous and I loved watching them ‘help’ open the presents too.
I forgot to take a picture of the treats in the ‘thank you’ favor bags our friends got to take home. We loaded them up with goodies, a Rapunzel coloring book and crayons, bubbles, play dough, play jewelry, a ring pop and other candy, a punching balloon… I can’t remember all of it.
Overall, it was a very fun party. Katelyn had so much fun having so many friends over to eat all the yummy treats and play games. A big thank you to all her friends and their mommies who came and played with us!
