Birthday party planning again

My daughter is going to be 5.

HOLY SHIT WHERE DID THE LAST FIVE YEARS GO????????? [Runs around the room screaming and pulling out hair] AAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

Ok, I feel better. So Melody will be five on her next birthday and we are starting the thinking and planning process for her party. She really wants some sort of princess theme and I’m thinking Rapunzel. She loved the movie Tangled and there are a lot of really fun crafts the kids can do at the party, making crowns is one of them. We also will be having my friend Samantha over to put feathers in the little girls’ hair and do colored gel for the boys. Bring on the blue and red Mohawks!

In case you are not aware, you can’t just wander over to Parties R Us and pick up Rapunzel invitations. The movie was incredibly popular but for some reason either Disney hasn’t licensed the images for the ubiquitous birthday decorations, confetti and napkins (completely out of their character) or my local party store is lame.

What’s your guess?

So, in the next few weeks I will be searching online for Rapunzel birthday invitations. Oh, and creating some sort of Rapunzel pin the tail on the whatever game. Pin the hair on Rapunzel? Pin the chameleon on the tower? Pin the crown on the princess? This may be a stretch of my creative abilities.

  1. You’re such an awesome Mommy!
    I agree, very hard to find a lot of Rapunzel stuff (Cass is a huge fan too), why the heck is that? If you need me to look for anything, let me know…I love to spend other people’s money.

  2. Don’t forget if you need extra adult supervision I have the day open. I’ll bring a sippy cup for your wine. I’m just say’n.
