Amanda's 4th Birthday Party
Amanda turned 4 years old on Feb. 10, 2009!
We had her princess themed birthday on Feb. 7.
Her grandmother made a beautiful princess cake.
All of the girls had fun making princess crowns and purses. The crafts were a big hit!
I made little princess wands by gluing wooden crown cut-outs to dowel rods. I spray painted them pink and added pearl stands and ribbon. I also added sparkles and a special sparkle-glitter glue to the wands.
Megan is showing us her purse.
Angela loved her purse and crown. She wore her crown to school the next Monday morning!
Kaylan had fun gluing the sparkles on her crown.
Brielle was dressed as tinkerbell. She loved her crown.
Three little princesses—so cute!
Amanda loved the balloons and decorations!
I started buying favor items on sale last November. The little princess buckets are actually Halloween candy pails that I got for 75% off after Halloween at Walmart. I also found princess tattoos, wallets, bubble bath, sponges, and bath books on sale at Target and Walmart.
We served little finger foods for the princesses.
The adults liked the food too!
Here are all but one of the princesses. I could not get Charlene to be in the photo.
Grabbing for candy after it came out of the princess piñata.
The piñata was original an island barbie themed piñata that I got on clearance at Party City for $5.00. I covered up Island Barbie with the Disney Princesses and saved $15.00. This was a party with a budget after all!

The cake was yummy!
Everyone had a good time!
Amanda and grandma took the princess oven and mixer out of the box after everyone left. Amanda loved it! We also opened up the presents from both sets of grandparents that night.
