A couple weeks ago we celebrated our little princess with a 4th birthday roller skating party. I will post more about that another time, but today I had to share with you the decorative aspects that I am in love with.
I contacted Oriental Trading when my daughter decided on her birthday theme and ordered the plates, cutlery, doilies, napkins and table cloths. I had a vision and hoped that I could pull it off and do it on a $100.00 budget. I spent $75.00 of my budget on the items I listed above from the Oriental Trading company.
We had our party at our families roller skating rink during a public session, as it could easily accommodate the 25 little guests and their families that we invited. I had just 15 minutes to set up and had to have a very clear plan that was easy to put together in just a few moments. I crafted most of the materials at home so that I just had to tape a few items down when we got there.
I rolled each cutlery setting in the napkin and then tied them with a small string. To bring more Beauty and the Beast into each setting, I added a little rose which I found at our local dollar store in bunches. The kids went crazy over these. They loved that they had a pretty little place to sit and that everyone got their own rose! It was adorable.
I purchased a little set of Beauty and the Beast figurines from the Disney Store to add some character to our table and placed those throughout the setting as well. However, my favorite item that I created was our enchanted roses. These were a must have according to our princess and initially I was nervous trying to figure out how to pull this off. After a trip to the local dollar store and craft store, those fears were gone and I was ready to create a couple enchanted roses to accentuate our table.
