Violet's Third Birthday Party

We had Violet's third birthday party this past weekend. She was old enough this year to decide what kind of party she wanted, and she requested a blue and red princess party :) I wanted to keep things pretty simple this year since I knew I'd have a one month old on my hands, so we went with some balloons and tissue paper poms, a homemade cake, and some pipe cleaner crowns:


I also snagged a cardboard play castle on Zulily with some credit a while back and the kids has a blast with it! At first the boys were more into hunting for slugs in the dirt than playing princesses (surprise surprise) but when I handed out some magic wands, they all started playing a game of bad guys and princesses and it was hilariously cute. Violet passed out from pure exhaustion immediately after the last guest left, so I'd call that a whopping success! xo, Lauren
Update: I've gotten a few requests for sources already so here you go:

"YAY" Plates: Amazon
Polka Dot Napkins: Amazon
Castle: Purchased on Zulily but you can also buy on Amazon (it's reversible - white on one side, cardboard on the other)

Cake Stand: Shop Sweet Lulu
Wooden Star Wands: Etsy Shop PaperPolaroid
