Every girl from the time they were little loves to be a Princess. Well my sister, BreAnne was no exception, any chance she had when she was little she would dress up like a Princess and even preferred to be refereed to as Princess. Of course, she was only four at the time...
Bre and Analee grew up close together in age and in Birthdays. So my Mom and I got together and planned this "Shabby Chic Princess" party inspired by their love of all things girly!
I've noticed a big trend with burlap lately, and saw a wedding on-line where someone made a sign out of burlap. So we decided to test it out. The goal was "imperfection." I wanted to make it look home made so we didnt sew anything or measure. I love how it turned out. Tutorial will be posted next.

The napkins were placed in a simple potting cup with a paper flower and a vintage napkin folded inside. Each place setting had there own flower pot adorned with a matching ribbon, and a place card with there names on it.
The flower pots were covered in vintage fabric and ribbon tied around it, and a birds nest that my Dad found before he left town that morning.
Roberts craft store and found fabulous paper products that I used throughout the entire display. Including some vintage paper that I glued on plain boxes, with eclectic ribbons to wrap the birthday gifts.

The party boxes were paper boxes that we folded and stuck paper button flowers on and added the same ribbon used at the dining table.
The food theme for the night was "Strawberry Fields" since strawberries are now in season. We had the dessert table and meal inspired by all things strawberry or pink. The birthday cake was a Red Velvet Cake done by The Chocolate.

The cupcakes were Vanilla Bean with Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting. Mini Vanilla Bean Cheesecakes were placed throughout the table. Last but not least, there were Chocolate Dipped Strawberries and Mini Strawberry Cheesecake Parfaits.
