Maddie's Cinderella Party, Part 1

So excited to share our Cinderella party! At three years old, it would be hard to find a little girl who likes to dress up more than our little Maddie Brynn. It all started last December when a sweet friend of mine gifted her a fancy Cinderella dress. 

Doesn't she look like so little here? Those cheeks! 
This was only 10 months ago!

The dress was a little big, so we had pin it up in the back... and it was a little hard not to trip, but she made it work with help from a pair of adorable Cinderella glass slippers we found at Target. Both items have become staples in this household. A couple of months after the dress arrived, somehow we came across princess songs on itunes and since then we have heard DAILY renditions of "Bippidi-Bobbidi-Boo" and "A Dream is a Wish...". 

The weird thing is that she does not constantly request to watch the movie. Although sometimes she does ask me to cue it up to the part with the Fairy Godmother and Cinderella going to the ball. And she does ask almost daily if mommy and daddy would dance with her like Cinderella and the Prince. We usually twirl around the kitchen a time or two.

I gave Maddie several options for her birthday party, but she never wavered from her initial choice:  so Cinderella it was! And Bub the hub and I would have no idea that the best decision we'd make would be having a Cinderella character come to the party. Maddie was totally enchanted! Enough background though, here is the party.

Although initially excited about her "before the ball" dress, Maddie saw
 all of her guests in their princess attire and felt a little left out....

A change was in order!

that's more like it!

FAB-ulous carriage cake topper, cupcake toppers 
and cookies by my wonderful and talented bestie, Allison!!

Just a few of our princess friends!!

I didn't set up activities this year, but we did have
a dress-up station that seemed to be a big hit.

I had fun getting a little crafty and making a Cinderella 
Story Banner for the entry way.

Mid-way through the party, there was a little knock on the door...
She's here!!

Maddie's sweet little face just lit up as soon as Cinderella 
arrived. She showed her all around the party!

Our Cinderella was fantastic, she really made Maddie feel special.

And here is where I have to leave you, on the edge of your seats I know--
but I have a jillion more photos to go, so I am posting a Part 2 
tomorrow. Stay tuned for the rest of Maddie's magical Cinderella Party!
