This year for Ella's birthday we decided to do a princess tea party. It worked out great because Alice in Wonderland was able to come and be a special guest! It was so fun to see Ella excited for her special day and it was as girly as you could possibly imagine. First we had a very traditional tea party with punch and cupcakes, then Ella opened gifts, and after, we had little stations where girls could go and get their nails done and their hair done (like I said, GIRLY). I think my favorite part was just planning it and decorating it, and luckily I have the best family in the world (thank you Katie, Melinda, and Mckinley) because they did a lot of the set up and helped so much throughout the whole party.
This was where we had the tea party, and it was colorful, magical, and fun!
I loved the lanterns, this was my favorite part of the decorations.
All of the pretty princesses. It was just so fun to see the girls excited and giddy!
Everyone wanted to sit next to Alice, and all of the girls were so excited to have her come to the tea party.
Ella has been telling me for some time that she really wanted a cake with candles that she could blow out and have everyone sing "Happy Birthday", and when Mckinley asked her if she made a wish, she said, " I already got it".
I never thought I could find so much joy in creating a magical experience for my kids, but I really did love seeing Ella so excited about everything.
I love that Alice could come, she was just perfect and it made the whole party so happy and fun.
Ella got to open her presents and it was so cute to see how all of the girls were so excited to give her their own present and watch her open it.
We put Alice to work, and she did a great job doing all of the girls hair.
My cousin got put in charge of nails.
That little happy face made the whole thing so worth it.
This is Ella's cousin helping Ella wrap up the baby she just got for her birthday, I just thought it was sweet to see them playing.
