Princess Birthday Party Ideas on a Budget

I have a very special little princess. I find that every year my little princess wants a party filled with sparkles and magic. I love a great party, but I hate the expense that comes with a great party. This year I vowed to throw a party on a budget. We decided to have a pizza and cake party and do a reasonably priced craft. This is what I did, and this is what I spent.

You guys, my baby (well, not so much a baby anymore) turned 7 this week! I can’t believe it and have no idea when it happened. Is it just me or does time go by so much more quickly when you have kids? Every year I let my daughter pick her birthday theme. In years past it has been Tinkerbell, Alice in Wonderland, and Frozen. This year is my favorite theme she has picked yet,¬†Minions!¬†For those that might not know what the Minions are, they are the lovable little Twinkie shaped creatures from the animated film Despicable Me. ¬†We love those little guys and went all the way to Florida to see them at Universal Studios over spring break.¬†Continue reading

With having 2 children, we often receive many birthday card invitations during the year. These always end up in the garbage can or recycling bin depending who throws them away. I cringe at the money that is often wasted on invitations myself when planning my children’s parties. This year I looked thru my list and realized that only a handful of the 50 people we were inviting were not connected to the internet. I decided that there had to be a nice way to send out an electronic invitation that was appealing and had all the important information. For those that were not connected to the internet we mailed them a¬†Make Your Own Birthday Card Invitation.¬†They were simple to make and saved on custom invitations.

 **I received free products in order to host the Disney Side @Home Celebration. The opinions expressed her are my own.**

A while back I applied for the chance to host a #DisneySide Party and I was so excited when I was picked. I was given party supplies and other goodies to help me plan my party but the best thing was I was going to be able to show my¬†Disney Side the way I wanted to. Having just had my daughter’s tenth birthday, I knew that I wanted to do something a little different. I put my thinking cap on and decided to hold a party for the kids at our church and their friends. The best part was when I reached out to a few local businesses they were more than happy to help the kids have a fun time and donated delicious food for the event. (see all our sponsors below).
