Ginger's Princess, Enchanted Garden P*A*R*T*Y

This past Saturday was little Ginger's 2nd birthday! 

We decided on a princess theme. I had originally wanted a tea party as well but later decided that she was a little too young to handle hot beverages in breakable cups so we just changed it to a princess theme with an enchanted garden!!! 

I think it came out adorable! 

Princess Ginger

I think the Enchanted Garden was my favorite part of the entire thing. 

It came out so magical!!! 

I am trying to think of where we can donate the castle to. I thought maybe a preschool or a day care for under privileged kids might be a good idea but we actually might just keep the enchanted garden up for a while.

I put pillows all over the floor so the kids could lye down and read in there. They love it! 

Ginger has tried to sleep in there everyday since it's been up! 

I will have a DIY tutorial on exactly how to make one of your own next week! 

It's EXTRA  M*A*G*I*C*A*L at night!!!!! 

It glows with radiant colors!!!!!! Oh, I just adore it!!!! 

A place like this can make even my problems disappear for a while! 

These are a few of my favorite photos of the kids and I. 

I love their facial expressions! 

TA DA!!!!!

The castle!!!!!!!! 

This took a bit more time but was well worth it. I thought it was quiet grandiose

I let the kids pick the color. They wanted yellow and I decided to accent with pink! 

It had a large front door but also two little wings inside with interior doorways. I thought it was so fun. 
I had it all assembled and ready for a couple days prior to the actual party so it's funny, the kids actually weren't that impressed by party day, that's why there are no photos of them scrambling around in there but boy did they have fun the entire week it took me to make it! 

I found my original inspiration for this project {HERE} However I of course did things my own way and will also post a DIY guide on this too! 

The photo booth idea didn't go over as well as I'd hoped!!! 

The  kids were really a little too small to understand and pose and I was pretty much the only adult that wanted to partake in the photo booth. So here are the few pics I was able to snap! 

I suppose had I invited a whole bunch of people maybe we would have had more people participating.

I Still Think this is a great idea for parties and showers and will definitely do again another time!

Here's the pink ruffle cake!!! 

I had seen similar ruffle cakes on pinterest and knew that's what I wanted to do. I decided to make a tiny tassel garland since I was loving my large ones so much and then I made the inside a couple shades of pink. I think it came out pretty!!!! 

I'll also post a DIY on how to make the cake and topper!

These last few are my favorites!!!! 

My baby girl, so grown up already! I love seeing her and her brother together blowing out those candles. 

Be Still My Heart! 

I hope you enjoyed the pictures. Like I mentioned above I will post DIY's for EVERYTHING so no worries if your interested in making something. 

Soooooo.............Wha'd ya think?????

Oh wow, I am profoundly jealous of the castle and the garden. I'm definitely going to have to try and make something like that someday. My daughter got a cheap but pink and adorable castle shaped play tent for Christmas the year before last and wanted to live in to forever. It broken, unfortunately, after only a few months, but while it lasted it was much beloved. Next time I'd rather make my own. I see some cool versions made to cover card tables on Etsy from time to time. That's my some day ambition. To make one.
