Pretend Princess Play

My daughter Lu had very big ambitions for her third birthday party.  Ariel's ship.  Belle's village, Snow White's cottage, and Rapunzel's tower.  I wanted to make her party what she wanted, without spending a fortune.  The grandparents donated some boxes from some furniture they bought, and tada!  Lu's expectations came to life. Lu helped me every step of the way, which is the way I think birthdays should be. 

It was a win/win situation.  Lu got the party she wanted, and we got to spend some quality time together.



The boat.  Watch out for mermaids!!

Belle's village.  Lu helped me decorate the buildings with sponges to make bricks, and helped me color in the sheep.

Le Marche from Belle's village.  I think this was Lu's favorite addition.

We made our playhouse into Snow White's cottage, and our wagon was the royal carriage.
We already had this popup cardboard Disney castle-- I found it in the clearance aisle after Christmas.

See that basketful of hats?  Lu insisted we must have costumes..of course!  More about those in another post.
