We had a princess party for Bennett today. She had asked if Ariel could come to her party and so of course we obliged. I called Disney World and asked if Ariel could come in on the afternoon carriage, and they were extremely accommodating.
We had Bennett's castle decorated and ready for the festivities. I made a bunch poms out of tissue paper and we wrapped tulle around all of the chairs. We did all of this when Bennett was asleep and when she came downstairs the next morning she said, "Oh, Mom! It's just like I imagined it would be." That sentence alone made any effort completely worth it.
I made flags to line the walkway to the house so the little princesses would be greeted properly.
And I made a castle cake for the party. I am not a cake baker by any stretch of the imagination, but I have fun trying. The gel for the windows started sliding down and it wasn't as smooth as it could have been, but I love doing it and love making something special for my daughter.
The royal family.
After Ariel left it was time to cut into the castle cake!!
