This party has to be THE most magical party I have ever styled! When I first met Alexa’s mom she told me that I could get as creative as I wanted. This was like a dream because I could imagine and design anything I wanted and it would come true! It was so much fun to really study the movie (Beauty and the Beast) for inspiration and think of all the fun details that could be incorporated into the party. I was sure this 2 year old, would have the most magical time.
As always, I enlisted my amazing vendors to help me out with ideas of their individual crafts and how they could fit into my design. I definitely knew while designing that the whole event needed to flow like the movie. From the West Wing to the quaint village, the event had to emulate the storyline the Princess followed.
To set the tone, guests were invited to the party by a prince holding a handmade paper flower along with a royal invitation (Check them out here). The mood was set, and the guests were excited!
As children arrived to the residence, they were greeted with two attendants handing out princess or pirate balloons. As they each received their balloons they made their way through the grand entrance and into the West Wing. Once guests dropped off their gifts for Princess Alexa they proceeded into the village right outside the doors.
Awnings, baguettes, crepes, croissants, flower carts, and lovely French music created an ambiance that would make you want to sing! Not to mention, the most beautiful princess that came to sing and read stories to the children!
As children passed the village, they entered Princess Alexa’s Boutique. The boys would be transformed into pirates and the girls into beautiful princesses. They were handed gorgeous petti-skirts (from Mommy’s store Tutti Bambini Maternity Concierge) with matching tank tops, tiaras, and got their hair and makeup done by a fabulous Glam Squad!!!
Once they were made up, the guests were greeted by wonderful princess music in the castle (tent) and they were the guests of honor! A cupboard and dining table full of treats, flowers on the table, chandeliers from the ceiling, and candelabras that added royalty were some of the details that guests encountered. This party was by far magical and so much fun to style. The best part of this party was the wonderful family I got to work with and all the fun (and stress) I had putting it together! Happy Birthday Princess Alexa! J
