My daughter was truly the belle of the ball when we recently held our #DisneySide playdate party!
This actually was the third Disney Side playdate party we’ve hosted in the past year. They’ve been a real hit not only with my kidlets and their pals, but their parents as well because Disney truly is multi-generational in its appeal! My daughter and her friends love anything Princesses and of course “Frozen” while my son and his buds are into “Big Hero 6” and us adults, well we all have different favorites ranging from Tinkerbell to “The Little Mermaid” and the main mouse himself, Mickey!
Since I knew that the boys would all be hanging out in our game room playing Disney Infinity during our playdate party, I decided to focus on what kind of experience the girls would have. I sat down with my daughter and we talked about what we should do for the girls. With the new “Cinderella” movie coming out, we thought it would be a fun idea to have sort of our own Princess Ball.
I spent the next few days surfing Pinterest for decoration ideas when a pin led me to Birthday Express, which is an ultimate, all-in-one-website for all party, decorating and even costume needs! The site has so many party themes to choose from and features a whole line of Disney characters — including, you guessed it, Cinderella!
Birthday Express made it all so simple. They offer this total party planning time saver option called “the Complete Party in a Box” which provides you with everything you would ever possibly need (or think you’d need!) to host a fun and festive looking party.
I wound up opting for the Disney Cinderella Sparkle Party which included tons of great items including balloons, plates, cups, napkins, utensils, tablecloth, decor, party favors, thank you cards and more. My toughest decision was selecting the number of party-goers and Birthday Express literally did all the rest. You can even customize your “Party in a Box” to get extra or different items to fit your party’s specific needs. They can even make custom banners, which come in three different sizes, that match your party theme!
Here’s how our table looked:
Between the tablecloth, plates, cups and pink utensils combined with the balloons, ribbons and table top decorations, it all looked so pretty and put together, like it was right out of an actual fairy tale for my daughter and her friends to play pretty princesses at!
I liked that my party box came with two different sizes of plates to use as well as large napkins because as we all know, little princesses can be messy, especially when there is cake involved!
I used the streamers to help create a “where your dreams come true” area where the girls could make their own party wishes and this fairy godmother would make their fairy tale dreams come true!
My daughter and all her girlfriends especially loved the Princess Lollipops and each went home with balloons and party hats of their own!
What I liked most about my Birthday Express experience was that it was one-stop-shopping for all my Cinderella supplies and at a reasonable price. I did a little comparison shopping – I figured out that using the Complete Party in a Box option would save me about 40% versus if I had purchased each of the items separately at a party store. It was also super convenient to have all my party supplies delivered direct to my doorstep in just a few short days.
If you are planning a party – whether it be for a birthday, anniversary, graduation, baby shower, sporting tailgate, religious celebrations or even just because, you should definitely check out Celebrate Express, they have everything you need to create the party of your dreams.
Now it’s your turn to share. If you were hosting a party, what party theme would you choose to celebrate?
