The Birthday Princess posed for a picture with the Queen Mother. We managed to wear this lovely dress for about a half hour. Once she saw the other friends had arrived in bathing suits, she wanted hers on too. Oh Well!The princesses all arrived and were excited for the birthday fun. All of the girls were so sweet and very patient waiting for me to put out the cupcakes and ice cream.The treats began with these darling cupcakes. The girls just gasped when they saw the ballerinas. These were the biggest ballerinas ever. I bought them from Andrea at 100 Wishes and they were fantastic.We sang Happy Birthday and Shelby sang too! Mommie only made it through the first verse then I had all to do not to cry! My little girl is growing so fast. She is so in her element with all of her friends and all of the attention heaped on her. LOLAfter cake and ice cream we played "Pin the Fairy on the Flower." Everyone joined in and won a candy bracelet for playing. Shelby had never played before but got right into it. She at least hit the paper.
The birthday princess awaited her guests in her lovely birthday dress. She looked so sweet!
Shelby just smiled and laughed all day! Come along and see the sweet birthday fun....The princess invitations were delivered...The porch was decorated along with the the party table ready for 8 little princesses.Each little party goer had their very own crown and cupcake place card when they sat down.
All of the loot bags were heavy with lots of goodies and treats!
Then to the good stuff, opening the presents! What wonderful gifts she received from all of her friends.
It was finally time to swim. It was so hot yesterday I thought we would melt. Everyone played very nicely together and all of the girls said thank you to me and Shelby. We had a really fun day.
When the party was over and everyone was gone, Shelby dried off from the pool and headed back to the porch for her goodies. She headed for one bag. The bag with the Cinderella costume. She stayed in this dress all night. She truly is a princess.We ended the special day with alot of bling. I had so much fun planning this little event, but I am glad we are done. We have been so busy all summer and are getting ready again for more company. By August 19th, the company will have all returned to their respective states, Shelby will have started back to preschool and Mama will be in her new studio!
Thanks for sharing this special day with us!
