Sofia The First Royal Prep Party Party Details:
This is what Fredricka said about planning the party- “My daughter is absolutely in love Disney Jr.s cartoon, Sofia the First. Several months before her 5th birthday she insisted on a Sofia the First-themed party. Her directives to me were simple: purple, glitter and Sofia! I decided to go with more of an inspired theme, with a little bit of Sofia the First sprinkled in there. I embellished a bit on the colors to give the party more of a royal look, so I used gold accents, instead of silver. It was also important to me that my daughter be represented in the party design, so I had a custom silhouette made of her wearing a tiara. I used the image in places around the party to personalize the party to her. One of Sofias sayings is that a Princess must have a kind heart, so I also incorporated the use of hearts in touches throughout the party. I worked with the amazing Wendy Oliver with Greenbeensie Ink on Zoes party paperie. I wanted to set a royal tone to the party, so I opt ed for scroll invitations that were hand delivered to each Princess-in-Training by Royal Messenger (aka my husband and me). Wendy designed the invitations and then I worked with a secondary vendor to have the invitations printed on fabric and attached to gold scrolls. Since Sofia the First is relatively new, not many princess-for-hire companies offer her as a character, but I was lucky to find a local company that recently added Sofia to their line-up. I decided to go with the basis of Sofias story, which was to transform our little princesses-in-training into real life princesses via dress-up clothes from the Royal Boutique and, of course, princess lessons at the Royal Prep Academy (the same school Sofia attends). Sofia the First conducted the days lessons. I purchased purple cushion covers from Ikea and set them on the floor for the girls to sit in front of Sofia the First and the &ldq uo;chalkboard, which displayed the days lessons. The lessons and activities were:
1. A princess has a kind heart: learning to give compliments and to say thank you when one is given.
2. A princess walks with her head held high: balancing a book on their heads.
3. A princess always sits like a lady: sitting exercise.
4. A princess is always gracious: learning to curtsy.
5. A princess keeps her cool: learning to use paper fans (Sofia and Amber often use hand fans on the cartoon).
6. A princess dances gracefully: the girls had a fun dance party with Sofia, dancing to the Sofia the First soundtrack. I made ribbon wands for her girl to twirl during this time.
7. A princess knows how to have fun: continued the dance party and the other activities the princess prepared.
After our little princesses-in-training concluded their princess lessons, they dined at the Royal Table, which was set elegantly for Zoes Royal 5th Birthday affair. I used elegant silver cloches to cover the plates for a true royal feel. The meal consisted of some of Zoes favorites: heart shaped turkey and cheese sandwiches, fresh strawberries and baked veggie straws. I wanted to keep the dessert table relatively small, but also wanted it to have a royal feel. I made the dessert table banner into a scroll by attaching it to a painted dowel rod and attaching tassel trim and framed it with velvet fabric to create a curtain effect. The desserts consisted of an amazing Sofia the First doll cake (I asked for a super glammed up doll cake and bakery delivered!); princess pudding parfaits with tasseled spoons, elegant lavender damask printed white chocolate oreos, Sofias Amulet sugar cookies, and heart shaped purple glitter lollipops.
Zoe LOVED her party and proclaimed this the best party EVER! Id say that means success.
