All Tangled Up: a Rapunzel party

Yesterday my niece turned 4 years old.  She is one of the most hilarious and sweetest little girls I've ever met....and she absolutely adores Rapunzel.  So what made more sense than to throw her a Tangled-theme birthday party?  When my sister mentioned the idea, we both hit the internet and started brainstorming ideas (my sister found most of them).  Here is the party in pictures:

the decorations:
I know it's hard to tell, but this painting is HAND DONE by my talented sister.   

This is another painting she did, along with a homemade yarn lantern.  So cute!

Rapunzel's hair.  We also did a brown braid and paired it with some (paper) scissors and had that hanging out on the bathroom counter.   =)

Another glimpse of Jenny's painting, along with the streamers she made.

And of course there had to be color-coordinating flowers!

What Tangled party would be complete without Rapunzel herself?  My niece spent most of her party dancing and singing with her friends and her favorite princess!  Rapunzel also practiced her painting skills on the cheeks of all the party guests.   She was awesome!

the food:
The obligatory veggies.  Something has to be healthy, right?

We kept it simple for the kids:  premade pb&j and chips.  

Jello adorned with clementine boats, perfect for lantern-watching.

We put some of the food in cast iron pans.  =)  The adults were fed rustic rolls, cold cuts and cheese with an array of spreads: chipotle ranch, pesto and honey mustard.  We also did some caprese skewers for munching on.

For drinks my sister served strawberry lemonade and iced tea.  Yummy!

the cake:
A friend of mine did a killer creative Rapunzel tower and I was determined to do one also.  

I printed out a mini version of Flynn Rider's "Wanted" poster - I thought it added a nice touch.

Another view.

The waterfall. 

By the end of the party, my niece was exhausted.  Her mommy persuaded her to take a "5 minute break" which turned into an hour-long nap.   

My guess is the party was a smashing success!

Jessie, this is Amy. That is one of the most beautiful parties I have EVER seen. When I read this and saw the pictures, my jaw dropped. Those decorations are perfect and the cake is absolutely gorgeous! God has really given both of you a talent for parties. :)

Thanks Amy! It was a blast to her pull this off, and it's definitely something we both enjoy doing. =)
