Party decorations. As I’ve mentioned before, Bellaonline isn’t a highly visual site and they only recommend one or two pictures. As a food blogger, I’m still getting used to the idea of not including lots of pictures. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t take lots of them.
It just so happens that I have at my disposal a real live princess. Princess Gabbi was more than willing to perform her royal duties by holding court at her mini Princess Party table.
Using what I already have brought the cost of the Princess Party Table to under $12.00, including the treats.
I covered the table with a white lace cloth and overlaid it with a dusty pink one. The place setting was princess paper plates on top of white dinner plates with pink chargers. For the cutlery I used pink plastic ones leftover from Gabbi’s spa party and used a plain pink napkin. Sometimes using solid colored paper napkins, plates and cups are more budget conscious. Any leftovers can always be used for another occasion. I scooped up the pink princess plates for Gabbi a while back at the dollar store for .75. A small price to make a little girl happy. The napkins were in my stash leftover from my birthday.
Every princess needs a throne to sit on while issuing royal decrees. I used attachable white wings and a mini veil on the back of this one.
The base of the centerpiece was a glass cake stand with batting around the bottom of it. I placed a pink tiara with ribbons and fur on top of it and a tiara. On top of that I sat an oversized cocktail glass with batting on top. In the batting I placed wands and pink roses.
A pink lollipop and a wand are the perfect take home treat. Since this was a party for one the treats were minimal and more so for effect. Strawberry milk in my frap bottles with a pink straw and Little Debbie strawberry cream cakes. Quick, easy and to the point. Point being, a simple table can be done quickly and on a budget.
