pretties for the birthday girl.

saturday is fast approaching and i feel like all i have done is work on this party - is nuts to go so crazy for a four year old party? i think this year can be the wildcard, it is the first one where she invited more than her three or four forced into relationships best friends and asked her preschool class to join her on her special day.
i am in love with the theme we have choose - would it be over the top if stella has a rainbow party down the road? i love that it is so open to interpretation, decoration, and budget! like i mentioned before, while living in this house has been amazing the new expenses are taking some getting used to and it is a blessing to still be able to throw the blonde an over the top party with very little financial investment!
pinterest has been a amazing resource as usual and we have had fun picking and choosing ideas we like and changing them up to fit her party even better.
the first two things on my loooong 'to-do' list were a fabric scrap skirt and a crown so that rowan would really stand out at her party - i used this and this for inspiration and got to work.
don't look too closely at the crown as it has many a flaws that i secretly covered up with buttons. to make the skirt i just picked up my favorite fabrics in the little fat quarters that joann's sells but later after finishing was hoping for a little longer length - it will still work great, she can just wear it with a cute pair of leggings.
i only had one version of red and when i first was finished it was way to big - when i tied the fabric on i had the elastic band pulled tight so it made for little elasticity and i had to play around with it a bit to get it to fit her right. in the end it turned out perfect and she doesn't want to wait to wear it!
tonight i am working on paper strip mobiles and a diy photobooth backdrop - i can't wait to share that with you! and we are crossing our fingers hard that it works out to have a face painter here on saturday, rowan would die, dead of excitement! eeeek!

:) It turned out really cute. It'll look super cute with leggings, plus it's warmer that way, perfect, right?! I'm sure Pinterest has an idea for the extras!
