We had a really special day celebrating Ellie’s 3rd birthday, and I wanted to put up some pictures of her party. At 3, she is obsessed with Rapunzel and was very specific about wanting a Rapunzel Tower cake which OMG was so daunting and very hard. I had tried to find a toy Rapunzel Tower (because cheating is my thing!) that I could just whack on top of the cake but I didn’t get one in time. Luckily, with some handy engineering from my hubby we got it done. Don’t look too closely though lol.
I found the theme really easy, especially once you start looking on Pinterest, there are many, many Rapunzel party ideas. We had saucepans everywhere, and used a saucepan to bash the pinata with. We played ‘Pin the Nose on Flynn Ryder’ and had a Hair Braiding station, and sidewalk chalk to paint with. None of this will make sense unless you have seen the ‘Tangled’ movie. Which most of the guests hadn’t BUT ANYWAY 😂
My favourite though, was surprising Ellie with a real life Rapunzel Princess who sang songs, read stories and did some face painting for the kids. It was so amazing seeing the shock on Ellie’s face and the awe from the kids. Ellie was very shy but has since spoken of how much she loved Rapunzel and how she would love her to come back. We used Unreal Kids Parties, and Terri was just fantastic. She dresses up as so many different characters and does an amazing job of each. I couldn’t recommend her enough.
Ellie has already decided she wants a Cinderella cake for her Fourth birthday. I better start practicing now. Till then!
