Let Us Eat Cake {Princess} Party

Let us eat cake is a princess party theme I threw for my daughter when she turned three!

Let us eat cake princess party - So Much Better With Age.

For my daughter’s third birthday her only request (for anything really) is pink. Of course she’s not concerned about the decor, she’s concerned about the cake. In fact, one of her little friends from preschool asked her what she wanted for her birthday and she said pink.

She loves cakes, cupcakes, candy and cookies. The 4 cs. You’d think she was talking about diamonds.

Nonetheless, I thought a Let Us Eat Cake theme was in order.

She doesn’t know who Marie Antoinette is so to her it’s a Princess party. To her mom, it’s a Marie Antoinette party.

I didn’t know exactly how I’d decorate but I knew I needed tulle and lots of it.

I started by making my foyer chandelier look like a fluffy crown and wrapping a whole bolt of white tulle around the foyer table to resemble a massive cake and finished it with a big tulle bow. Gift table done.

The house decorated with pink, purple and blue tulle.

I also wanted a backdrop for photos as a special guest was coming. More tulle!

I used my party curtains as the first layer then cut tulle and draped them in strips over top.

Then I used tulle in the dining room for the fun tea party.

Each guest got to have real (pink) tea in a tea cup. I was being very brave that day.

Party plates and napkins are on the table.

I didn’t want the princesses to get pink cake all over my upholstered chairs so I bought some white cotton fabric and just draped it over each chair tying some pretty tulle  around the chair in a dramatic bow.

There is blue tulle bows on the bottom of the chairs.

Here is the princess cake and pink cupcake table.

I used her birthday invites to make a pretty garland with satin ribbon over the mirror.

The special guest was Anna from Arandelle Castle (ok, Frozen). The birthday girl was in shock. We prepared her but she was still beside herself. She LOVED every moment.

Anna was amazing. She sang her Frozen songs, read the girls a story about her and her sister Elsa and played a bunch of games, gave coloring sheets with her signed autograph and their very own special frozen ice crystal.

They even got to make a wish with Frozen glitter (all over my carpet, aaak!).

Mommy had a mild heart attack but it vacuumed right up.

I then had each girl pose with Anna in front of the party backdrop. I’ll be sending the photos to each little party princess to remember the special day.

My birthday girl was so sad she had to leave. But Anna gave all the girls big hugs and went on her merry way back to Arendelle.

This was definitely a day she will always remember. It was so special. I still can’t believe she’s 3!
