Today I am sharing with you my daughter's Cinderella 4th birthday celebration that took place right before Christmas time.
Originally my daughter was asking for a Sofia the First birthday party then a few months before the party I questioned her because I knew how much she loved Cinderella, she watched the movie nearly everyday. So I asked which one she would like and she was all over the idea of switching things up and having a Cinderella party, which was no surprise.
The planning began right after that and I shared my inspiration for the party that I found of course using the amazing Pinterest. So after a few rushed months to get the party done it was all completed and turned out amazing! My daughter was on cloud 9 and enjoyed every moment of the planning and the day of.. So here it is:
To start I designed these adorable invitations for the party along with all the printed decor you will see below. You can visit my shop for more details here.
Here is the dessert table featuring one of the beautiful dresses that I had made from a talented seller on Etsy, named Greensies. I wanted this table to resemble the scene from the movie of the mice making the dress for Cinderella, which is one of my daughters favorite moments in the movie.
This was a small cake that I made for my daughter which I iced it using a rosette pattern. The glass slipper was purchased from a great shop on Etsy named The Glitter Shoppe.
Since my daughters birthday party was shortly after Halloween I bought pumpkin candy to use as magical pumpkins and the teal Sixlets as Drizella's beads.
These glass slipper cookies were so fun to make. I used a sugar cookie recipe and royal icing. I bought this cookie cutter set on Amazon to use for the slippers.
This picture I actually traced and colored from the actual screen shot from the movie. This is the book that the mice referred to in the movie to make the dress. I cropped the screen shot, printed it out and traced away. It was such a fun addition to the table.
Of course we had to have the mice at work on the table and these mice were hard to get. They do not make them anymore so I had to get them off eBay and luckily after a few weeks I found a listing with all of them for a good deal compared to the normal pricing on there.
Here is the food table. I served light food such as tea sandwiches, fruits, vegetables, snacks etc.
This was a frame I bought at Michael's and spray painted it pink. The birds I cut out using my Silhouette die cut machine.
This was another favorite of mine. My daughter insisted we had to have cheese for the mice so of course I had to find a way to have mice "eating" cheese and I loved this idea.
I made these paper wheels then added clock hands to make them resemble the clock striking midnight in the movie. I also had some hanging outside in the doorway as guest came inside.
Crowns and tiaras were cut out using glitter paper and my silhouette die cut machine
Happy Birthday banner
I used plastic table cloth rolls for the center arch between our two rooms to give it some color and it turned out much better than I thought it would. I simply pinned it in the center with a thumb tack then pinned on the two sides and added the tissue poms to cover up the pinned areas.
Some printables I made for the party
For activities we had a tea time station
We had a coloring Cinderella station
We had this castle up for the kids to play in and I added a banner to it that says Hailey's castle
We of course had to have a dress up station.
We had shields and armor for the boys and my daughters collection of dress up dresses for the girls
I got these three dolls from the Disney store to add to our table for the accessories in the dress up area. The tiaras and crowns I purchased from the party store and the fairy wands I made using wood dowels, ribbon and tulle.
The beautiful birthday girl!!

We of course had a surprise guest from the one and only Cinderella and that was my daughters favorite part most of all.
