My sister-in-law is a true Disney Princess fan. She's theming her precious baby girl's room Disney Princess. I was thrilled to follow her lead and match her shower to that theme! All the women at the shower played Princess for the day. What fun we had!
The Royal Dessert Table was host to the following Princess inspired goodies- Cinderella's Glass Slipper Cookies, Rapunzel's Golden Locks Licorice, Belle's Chocolate Roses, Jasmine's Jewl Cookies, Cinderella's Peanut Butter Cup Coach, Snow White's Chocolate Covered Apples, Sleeping Beauty's Wake-up Kiss Cookies, Fairy Godmother's Pretzel Wands, Tiana's Beignets, and Ariel's Salt Water Taffy. The table also had a menu on each side for guest to be able to connect the treat with a princess name.
What People Ate
We ate the guest of honor's favorite foods. The party began with snacking on grapes, various cheeses and crackers. The formal lunch menu was as follows--Grilled Chicken Ceasar Salad, mini Grilled Cheese sandwiches with two different soups, Creamy Tomato Basil and Brocolli and Chedder. The food was set up as a buffett; however the tables were set with flatware, glassware and favor at each setting. Since I was going for a "princess gathering" feel no disposable dinnerware was used.
What People Drank
Everyone loved the pretty Princess Punch, which was actually Rasberry Sherbet with Sprite. I also offered, coffee, water and a variety of sodas.
The best moment of the shower had to be when the Mommy to be had to vote on the best onsie and bib. She loved looking at them all and the guests enjoyed it too.
Each guest took home a gold or silver pumpkin, themed to play off of the Princess Cinderella's enchanted pumpkin. Guests were also provided with treat boxes to take home their choosen princess sweets.
Activities / Games
Planning for the days parties was so much fun! Since we had such a small party, we were able to do a few unique activities. For example, each guest was assigned a princess. They were handed a small princess notepad personalized with their name on front and their special princess assignment on the last page. This last page had a brief discription of their Disney Princess, just in case they did not know a lot about their character. Each guest took on the role of their princess and the other guests asked her questions. After about 20 minutes the guests made their final guesses on paper for each of the princesses. We had so many 100% corrects that the Mommy to Be had to pick a winner from a hat! I did one sheet of paper game, which was Guess the Disney Princess Toddler game. And everyone really enjoyed the competition in designing their own onsie and bib for Princess Gwynn! I paired everyone up in two so this allowed each "Team" to have about 20 minutes to create and also helped to get the creative juices flowing between people. I prepped before the party by cutting out several shapes, letters, objects and applied iron on material to the backs. I used the same fabric that I used to make the flag banners that hung on both sides of the Royal Dessert Table.
