Lorien's 6th Birthday Party

Our little Lorien is our last February birthday (unless Craiger decides to come early) & since she is our little princess girl, it wasn't a surprise she wanted yet another princess party for her 6th birthday party. This year she is in love with Disney's new movie: Tangled. It's an adorable movie (I loved it) & she wanted everything Rapunzel to match the theme. Even though I'm super close to delivery #5, I was still able to crank out a cute little Tangled cake for her with Rapunzel & all her golden long hair twisted around the entire cake. Lorien loved it.

The table was set with pink, purple, & yellow balloons & Rapunzel dishes & silverware.

And Cadence gave Lorien the best gift of all. . . . she shared her Tangled Rapunzel dress up outfit with Lorien so Lorien could be Rapunzel for the party.

In the movie, Rapunzel beats up an intruder to her tower (Flynn Rider whom she later marries of course) with a frying pan. Lorien BEGGED me to take a picture of her with a frying pan. She is SO SO SO funny.

We had about 10 kids from Lorien's class come to the party. They all know me as Mrs. Potter since I teach music in their class on Thursdays. They were SO excited to see where Mrs. Potter lived. ha ha ha. Kids. We started the party out by making homemade crowns since we were all princesses. All the girls came dressed up like their favorite princess.

Second we made little flower photo holders. Rapunzel loves to put flowers in her hair so we thought this would make a cute craft. We were all sticky with glue afterward, but we had a blast!

And last we made homemade lanterns. Rapunzel was kidnapped as a baby & put into a tall tower. Every year on her birthday, the king & queen would light lanterns to float in the sky. The entire kingdom lit lanterns & that is what eventually gets Rapunzel to run away from the tower. She becomes curious (sounds like Lorien). The kids loved the lanterns.

After we were all crafted out, we sat down for cake & ice cream.

We opened presents while we ate because we were short on time & the kids wanted to eat & eat & eat. It actually worked out perfectly. Lorien loved everything she got.

It was a very special birthday for her. I love you my little bug. You're getting SO BIG SO FAST! I order you to stop growing. I love you!
