Avery's Princess Party at the Park

Avery's 4th Birthday and Party were both last Saturday, April 28th. I know I say it every year, but it blows my mind how fast the time goes by when you have kids. I can't believe she's 4 already!

(I found the Free Printable Invitation on Pinterest here.)

We had a GREAT day at the park. The weather was in the low 60's and Sunny and everyone who came had a great time, including the birthday girl! The kids had baseball and soccer games that morning and early afternoon so we had her party at 3:00 and served a few light snacks and drinks. It was a great time! Many of the girls wore their princess dresses, which Avery was so excited about!

I made a cute little tag for each of the food options and put them in these handy Ikea frames. I'm excited to have them for future parties as well.

Our Menu was...
Princess Pretzels (Soft Pretzel Bites) with "Gus' Cheese."
Wicked Queen Queso Dip and "Chips' Chips."
Cinderella's Pumpkins (Halo Oranges)
Flounder's Fish Friends (Gold Fish)
Sven Snacks (Carrot and Celery Sticks with dip)
Fairy Godmother's Fruits (Fruit Tray)
Merida's Meat and Cheese Platter
Snow White's Non-Poisoned Apple Sauce (Apple Sauce Pouches)

Then the Beverages were...
Belle's Enchanted Punch
Princess Tiana's Southern Sweet Tea
The Beast's Brew (Beer)
Rapunzel's Capri Suns
Melted Snowman Water (Bottles of Water)

My Mother in Law helped with a majority of the food and it was a big help. I also used this idea for the favors and they turned out to be very easy and only about $10 to put them together. They were a hit at the party and so cute. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of them, but they were really cute!


My Mother In Law also brought a box full of kites and outdoor toys for the kids to play with that she had picked up for our Easter picnic that had gotten rained out. The kites were a big hit at the party!

Avery got a ton of presents and was so excited to open them! The biggest hits were the two little sister LOL dolls she got (she's obsessed with LOL dolls), the Pop the Pig game from Grandma that she's been wanting since Christmas and the Frozen bike my parents got her. She got so many other cute gifts and some really cute outfits. We are so blessed to have so many wonderful friends and family!

A little video of Avery opening Pop the Pig!!

(Avery was so excited about her gifts that she went from sitting on the bench to standing on the table in the matter of minutes, just to get to all of her gifts. I made sure to get her down, but took a quick picture to show her excitement!)

After presents we sang happy birthday and ate princess cupcakes! It was such a fun party for our little princess.

Singing Happy Birthday to Avery!

Avery, I hope you always know how much we all love and adore you! You are such a blessing to us all. You are surrounded by so many people that love you and I'm so very thankful for that. You are such a smart, sweet and sassy little girl. You are Mommy's "princess" and Daddy's "Sugar" we love you to the moon and back!
