Her birthday wish this year was to have a princess party and a "sparkly" princess cake, so on Saturday we hired the Kennedy Park Observation Post in Castor Bay and invited 10 of her closest friends to join us to celebrate her 3rd birthday.
The table was set with gorgeous Meri Meri princess tableware in pastel pinks, yellows and blues, heart-shaped table sprinkles and personalised 'Prince' and 'Princess' guest place cards. Lolly jars filled with jelly beans and Cinderella's sugar mice, miniature pink roses in glass jars tied with delicate ribbon and a princess carriage made out of a Chinese paper lantern gave the party a fairytale touch.
Ella and her friends were served crown-shaped gingerbread cookies, lollipop rings, delicious donuts topped with sprinkles, delightful heart-shaped ham sandwiches, Princess and the Frog hummus dip with vege sticks and sparkling pink grapefruit juice served in mini milk bottles.
The children danced the afternoon away to the Disney Princess Party soundtrack and enjoyed a game of pass-the-parcel before the party came to a close.
As it was Easter each party guest went home with a bag filled with delicious Easter treats.
It was a wonderful day spent with family and friends which resulted in one very happy little princess!
