The Princess Party on a Budget

So I finally got to post on The Princess party on a Budget.
Everything turned out perfect and now the complete breakdown.

I used plain white favor bags 12 for a buck and pasted these printouts on them.

Next table setting The Boa's we had brought from the $ store when they were available last year. Also the flowers and the vases.
The cute pink glasses I bought before valentine were 2 for a $ and they give the
setting a very nice touch.

I also did a seperate Knights table a we had about 4 boys

The Cake was a mini princess with pink frosted cupcakes. I decorated an old cake stand I had with a tiara on top a pink boa. I also got the Canopy from my daughters
room to give the cake cutting area that royal look.

The rest of the food was pretty simple

We also served Mini Pizza's from Trader Joes.
So mission accomplished for me and the kids had a wonderful time.

3 more days to go for the $100 Princess Birthday Party!!!

Three more days to go and I have my favors all ready the party activities are all set.
For the party table I will be using things I already have so no additional costs there.
I do have a mini princess cake mold that I will use to make a cake and the rest will be cupcakes.

Here is our party menu.

Another idea that hit me a few days back was the the dress up idea. It has the potential to throw me off budget but I am not spending any money on this.
Why not involve parents in the Dress up? So I looked in the closets and garage and found Hats a crown,Tiara a wig all used in past Halloweens

So while our lil princess's and knights are all dressed up we get a chance to have the whole family pose for a Royal picture.

Picked up gold colored plates from party city on sale &1.49 for 20!! wow I am nearly all set.
