When I started to plan Elin’s birthday, I wasn’t sure on the theme, but as it got closer to her birthday and her obsession with Cinderella grew, it was clear that we definitely needed a Cinderella themed birthday party! We wanted to stick to the iconic blue color from Cinderella’s dress and and the beautiful silver from her Coach. Elin and I have watched the 1950s Cinderella film so many times now that I can tell you in more detail than you would ever want to know about the color of blues and silvers in the movie.
This post will just show some of the party details and in the next post I will share images of Elin enjoying the party with her friends.
Elin loves the beautiful coach that Cinderella rides in and she was so excited when I found these wire carriages at Hobby Lobby. They were a bright pink, so Elin’s Papa spray painted them a perfect silver for us.
The cake turned out perfectly! It was seriously a work of art. The bakery, Confectioneiress, matched the blue color perfectly and made all the little details look beautiful!
The cake is quite the challenge to cut and thankfully I have a friend who takes on the task every year (thank you, Diana!). So in the meantime, cupcakes are perfect for little eager hands to hold and I find that the little kids enjoy them.
A party is not complete without gorgeous flowers and our local florist makes everything more beautiful. I think they turned out fit for a ball for Cinderella! The beautiful beads were the perfect embellishment.
I knew the girls needed wands for all the bibbidi bobbidi boo magical fun so, I made these out of tulle and used them for decoration and then party favors.
Of course we had to incorporate Cinderella’s glass slipper! I found a variety of sizes and decorated with them in several different ways.
Elin is the perfect Cinderella to me, so I used a photo of her dressed up like Cinderella from our recent Disney trip to personalize the cake plates.
I used my other carriage to decorate the mantle. The florist did the flowers inside it.
I am in awe of how this centerpiece came out. When searching for inspiration of Cinderella items on Etsy I came across a seller who made beautiful Frozen centerpieces and I asked her if she could make Cinderella-themed wands and these turned out so beautiful! The detail was amazing and they were sparkly and beautiful!
I used one of more beautiful Cinderella book (we have several different versions) to decorate in the kitchen.
I had the printables for the party made by Paige from Paiges of Style. I love how they turned out!
We moved out all the sunroom furniture to make a special area for Elin and her friends. We moved in her tent since it looks like a castle.
I put a crown at each of the princesses’ spots along with their first craft which was a necklace making set with Cinderella-themed beads.
The picture is actually for a party game of pin the shoe on Cinderella.
I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the details of the party. I enjoy party planning and love watching all the little details come together.
