Pink Princess Party

Grace Olivia's Pink Princess Birthday Party

My daughter and I share a very special day...our birthday. Grace was born on my 25th birthday and she is the best present I have or will ever receive. This year, on September 1st, she turned 5 and I turned 30 (eeeekkk!), so I wanted to host a birthday party for her that she would never forget. 
 Grace dresses up as some sort of princess almost every day, so what better than a pink princess party for her birthday? I started planning for the party back in May and got a little obsessed with every little detail of the party. I blame Pinterest really lol. I came across many many wonderful websites and Etsy shops and I wanted to be able to feature their items at the party for you all to see. I love checking out party websites like Kara's Party Ideas for party inspiration, and I am a bit obsessed with Pinterest and Etsy. I wanted to be able to show you all everything I had at the party and where you could purchase it all, or make it yourself. What took me months to compile, is all listed and linked below for you if you are interested in a similar party.

If you have any questions about any items or if I left anything out, please leave me a comment in the comment section below and I'll get back to you asap!


    1. Mandy, you did such a wonderful job! You're little girl is just adorable and both of you are truly blessed!

    2. too expensive for most Moms to do this type of party. glad you were able to get this organized

    3. Most items were donated!

    4. Yes most of the items at the party were graciously donated to me and for that I am very thankful. This post is more for party inspiration and ideas than trying to host something like this on a tight budget. I wanted to be able to showcase all of the shops who donated and show off their amazing items. Most were handmade! The bulk of items that I did purchase were on sale, used or inexpensive. I made a lot of items myself as well. If you get creative enough, the sky's the limit! :)

    5. how did you go about getting people to donate? this is the party i want to have for my daughter!
