This BE’FOUR’ THE BALL CINDERELLA THEMED BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Karen Ayars is absolutely ADORABLE! What a clever party idea!! The whole party was centered around what happened to Cinderella before the ball…and leading up to it. The details are absolutely incredible! Karen always does such an amazing job! Be sure and read the party description below!
Karen said- “For my daughter’s 4th birthday party I wanted to make it feel like the true fairy tale. I didn’t want to focus on the part that we always see focused on when talking about Cinderella. I thought since my daughter was turning 4, there was nothing more perfect than ‘Be4 the Ball’. The invitation was done in a piece of cloth to look like a rag and went inside a paper bucket with a mop and Gus Gus the mouse.
It asked the girls for help cleaning and getting ready for the ball. When the girls arrived, there was a chalkboard specifying the chores that had to get done before they could go to the ball. They had to sew the stepsister’s dresses (with real sewing machines as you can see in the pictures and with the help of the moms, of course), make the stepmother breakfast (the decorating the cake station), and do the laundry (when they reached inside the hamper there were cookies of “dirty clothes”).
Only then, after they had done it all, were they able to go to the ‘Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique’ to get ready for the ball. All the little girls wore rags the entire party… and then after they went to the boutique they changed into gowns.
