Sofia the First Party

We had a Sofia the First Party for my 5 year old.  It was so cute and we just love Sofia around here.  I got carried away with all the little detailed crafts on this one … I had lots of fun with that part.  I should have planned a couple more games or activities, but it all worked out in the end.

This was a fun (yet time consuming) little craft for the front door. below is a picture of how I did it.

Below is a tip on decorating a cake stand in a temporary way that won’t damage your platter.

Saw this adorable sofia the first cupcake cake idea on Pinterest. The white pearls are sixlets candy and the amulet is a homemade purple hard candy (in a jewel mold)

We watched an episode of Sofia the First during snack.

FYI… spray adhesive works better to hid the seams on a printed image, but I didn’t do that this time… whoops

party favors … found these super cute crocheted flowers in the dollar bins at Michaels and I hot glued a barrette to the back. Inside the bags are stickers, cheap tiaras (that I added some jewels to, to make them sparkle) and these (earring/ring set)

I made amulets from beads from Michaels onto a thing ribbon. made the mistake of not making the ribbon long enough for some kids to get over their heads… 😦

That’s the party!  Now here are those last 2 how to projects mentioned above:

I just took 2-3 strands of heavy gauge wire and made it into a large “5” … then cut little squares of purple tulle (you can barely see them on the table) and bunched them in the middle and hot glued the center onto the wire. Lastly I added some butterfly clips as shown in the top picture.

Under my cake stand I attached some scotch packing tape around my platter (and stuck another one under it with sticky sides together, so it was only stuck to the platter at the very top and wouldn’t stick to it below.) Then you can hot glue whatever tulle, ribbon, fabric or lace onto the tape. When the party is over, just cut it all off… so this is pretty much a one time decoration.
