The castle was made by my wonderfully talented friend Laurie. It was close to seven feet tall. Hint: Use a projector to blow up the image you want. The part that I wouldn't have done so well with was the filling it in. I could have done it but it would not have been this cute. She used chalks and I had it laminated at a school supply store for $6.00 and that included the sun as well. So much fun for little girls. I made the poster from a link I can't find. I just imported it into a software program that makes things poster size and printed it out on 4 pieces of paper. I modpodged it onto a poster board. A woman that threw another party said she had it blown up to poster size for around $3.00 at one of the copy places. That would have been nice to know before I pieced it all together. I thought it turned out great though. Here are few posters that you can download though neither is the one I used, but close. I can't find mine. Sorry. Here are those links: Flynn or flynn.
So... my imagination went to work when I saw these candelabras in black. They seemed perfect and the cupcakes wouldn't fall off by accident. See that giant spike. Genius!
This is the party area. Not overly fancy, but it worked and we were able to have a fun party in 1 1/2 hours. The cake wasn't on the pedestal yet, but you get the gist.
I made flower rings from pipe cleaner. So easy. I learned how to do it on this website.
I don't have a good picture of the paints, but I used rectangle boxes that I got at Michaels on clearance. I used the same technique as the oval boxes. Found some paints at the dollars store. Cut them to fit the box and with a little hot glue, they became Rapunzel Paints. I have some labels I attached to the bottom that say that. Once again, these were all wonderful ideas of others that I used.
I bought the topper at our local grocery store bakery. It is a kit they use for their cakes. It was five dollars. I wouldn't have had to spend the money if I could have found the miniature Rapunzel I bought last year when Sears was going out of business for $3.00. Sad news... found it yesterday in the top of my closet. Go figure!
It was a fun birthday. Can't say I will ever do one with so many details again, but it was worth every second of work to see her face.
Love that little girl. She challenges me daily, but brings us so much joy in other ways. She is very smart and equally artistic. It amazes me how much she works with both sides of her brain.
Oh... I found all the jello jigglers the morning after. I completely forgot them in the fridge. Oh well, I enjoyed all the jello flowers and hearts. Can you believe my kids don't like jello jigglers? Are they really my children?
This link will take you to Disney Family Fun. They have some really fun things for a Tangled Party.
I also used this website for ideas on the party. This is where I saw the idea for hair and improvised with what I had on hand. It was a great way for me to use all those orange buttons I got at Walmart in the Clearance section. Who knew orange would work so well.
