This pretty princess birthday party was sent in by crafty mama Lyttle of The Sweetest Thing. Lyttle says, “This party was 95% DIY and I’m so proud to have been able to pull it off for my daughter on a tight budget. Despite all of the time spent, it was definitely worth it. A true labor of love, for sure!”
The pink backdrop behind the dessert table was made by hand. Lyttle says it was “simply made by streamers cut into varying lengths and hung individually from wall to wall. I used white and three different shades of pink.” The “Happy Birthday” pennant banner and the “Princess Sadie” banner were also both made by hand using card stock, banner paper, acrylic paint and a gold markers.
The wreath was handmade from several shades of tissue paper to create an ombre effect.
Guests had their pick of pink party treats: mini strawberry cupcakes topped with pink vanilla buttercream frosting, chocolate covered maraschino cherry cake pops, and mini vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream frosting – all made from scratch.
Crown lollipops were served in pink sprinkle shooters. So cute!
A vanilla pink ombre birthday cake with pink vanilla ombre frosting was served atop a ribbon-decorated cake stand.
Pink and white strawberry flavored marshmallows were decorated with homemade toppers.
Each strawberry cupcake is topped with an perfect dollop of pink vanilla buttercream icing.
Lyttle made this beautiful chalkboard display all by herself to show off what Sadie has been up to in her first year.
Each party guest left with a treat bag full of assorted raspberry, almond and caramel Hershey’s Kisses.
Thank you so much for sharing, Lyttle! Happy birthday to Sadie! : )
