Our three-year-old little princess is experiencing an intense love affair with all things Snow White. She famously wore her Snow White dress-up costume for six months straight, with the only washing opportunity arising after she’d gone to bed. She has worn three separate costumes into the ground and regularly points at pictures of Snow White in books crying out ‘Look, that’s me!”
Oh yes, an undying love, indeed.
An obsession like this should be celebrated so that’s why we opted to theme her first ‘big girl birthday’ on that fair maiden of the forest.
Activities / Games
• Colouring in: To help our guests get in the party mood, we set up textas and pencils and had our guests start some colouring in. • Pin the jewel on the crown: Draw up a stylised crown containing a large jewel. Attach the crown to a wall and give each guest a jewel. Write each guest’s name on their jewel and put some blue-tack on the back. Blindfold them, give them a couple of royal spins and tell them to stick the jewel on the crown. • Treasure hunt: A winner every time, tell guests the Royal Family has lost their treasure and needs help finding it. Hide jewels, crowns, chocolate gold coins and other knick-knacks around the garden and ask everyone to return the lost items to the ‘treasure chest’ in the centre of the yard. Once everything has been found, let the royal gathering choose an item from the chest. The remaining items can act as prizes for other games. • Pass the poison apple: A spin on ‘pass the parcel’, hand an apple around a group sitting in a circle and every time the music stops the person left holding the apple is removed from the game. Make them feel better about going out by inviting them to pick a prize from the treasure chest.

I adored designing the stationery for my little princess's birthday. She had so much fun and to see that sparkle of pure delight in her eyes, I would do it all again. x
