With Disney’s new Cinderella movie on DVD, and pumpkins popping up in markets everywhere, I couldn’t wait any longer to show you the over-the-top birthday party I threw for my daughter last fall inspired by that fairy tale. It may very well be the most over-the-top birthday party I have thrown to date. I told her not to expect anything so fancy ever again…at least until her sweet 16 party.
While much of the party reflects the original Disney cartoon of Cinderella, we chose a non-traditional pink and gold color scheme because the party girl loves pink and her mom is enamored of the combination of pink and gold together. Also, because she has an autumn birthday, we wanted to play up the pumpkin elements in the party as much as possible.
See the many photos below for the tale of how it all unfolded and for all of the magical details!
Forget Prince Charming! These princesses fell in love with the ponies!
