I found some great party ideas at Disney.com and then added a few of my own. Turning 5 is great because Afton got to help a lot with the planning and crafting.
Her guests included all the girls in the class, plus a few special friends from outside of school, and of course Maisy Lou.
The girls came dressed as their favorite princesses. They watched "Tangled" in Afton's special movie theater that we set up in the garage. (Which turned out to be genius- because spilled popcorn isn't a big deal on a garage floor!)
The princess bounce house was also set up. So the girls kept themselves entertained with movie watching, jumping, drawing with chalk, and eating popcorn.
Afton has such sweet friends and their moms are just as great. We actually got a chance to sit and chat with each other inside. A rare moment!
Afton got so many thoughtful gifts- books, Barbies, craft kits, an umbrella, summer clothes, a bug house, and a personalized box for collecting treasure.
Every Princess left with a big smile- and a pair of stick-on earrings!
Yay for turning 5!
