Princess Tea 2016

A couple of weeks ago I took Elin to a Princess Tea put on by the show choir of our local high school. I had heard about it last year but it was too late to sign up by the time I heard about it, so this year I signed her up as soon as I heard that tickets were available.

I was very happy to see that our Cinderalla dress from Disney World still fit well. Unfortunately, she had grown out of the special clear slippers so she had to wear regular sandals.

I was so impressed when we got to the school and they had the entrance into the auditorium decorated and a line of fairy godmothers waiting to take each child to get hair and nails done.

Elin was very excited to pick her nail polish color and get her nails all done up. The experience was very similar to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique complete with a sprinkling of magic fairy dust and the magical words to transform into a princess.

Elin was very concerned about getting nail polish on the dress and took extra precaution to let her nails dry.

Then after hair and makeup the girls were lead out to long banquet tables set up on the stage where they had a snack of a pink cupcake, grapes, goldfish crackers, and pink lemonade.

After they ate, they had coloring sheets of each princess to color and much like Disney, this was used as their autograph book. Each princess was announced and came out across the stage and then came around to each girl and signed their coloring pages and talked to them. It was so cute to see Elin get really excited as each one would get closer to her.

After all the princesses had come around to each girl, it was story time and two princesses read two stories. Then they had a sing- and dance-a-long that Anna and Elsa taught the girls to Frozen’s, “Love is an Open Door”.

After stories and dancing there, was an opportunity to get pictures with each princess. All the princesses were so nice to each girl and made them feel so special.

Elin seriously had the best time. It was such a fun activity to do and such a great way for the show choir to raise money. If they do it again next year, we will sign up again for sure.

I love this picture of Elin and her pal Lydia checking each other out after their transformation.

That school was packed with other things going on like basketball camps, cheerleading camps, and various other sports goings on and so the girls ran into Elin’s cousin Max. I think he thought it was pretty silly to see them all done up like princesses running around in the school.

  1. How fun! I love all the pictures of her and the princesses. That is really cool that the high school does that. It’s really sweet of them. Elin looks like she was in heaven.

  2. Aw! This is SO cute!

  3. What a fun activity! The girl’s look adorable.

  4. How sweet! She looked adorable!

  5. This looks like it was so much fun! 🙂 I love that she was so concerned about getting nail polish on her dress! Such a girly girl!

  6. My gosh that is just the cutest thing! And, what a great idea!! I would have had a blast doing a fundraiser like this back in high school. Fun for all! Loving all the nails up pics. I wish Aria was a wee bit more concerned. She asks me to paint her nails all the time but forgets to just sit still for a few minutes afterwards.

  7. What a great idea!

  8. You are the best girl mom. I would’ve loved this as a kid. Such a great fundraiser idea. Elin and her friend look adorable in their princess dresses 🙂
