My niece turns "5" on Friday and has requested a Royal Party, consisting of pink princess decor, glitter, wands and cupcakes. If you knew our precious Madison you would know that she is oh so worthy of all of the above. So Auntie Cel and Nana are off to find the proper decor. I found the cutest candles, however they ended up being available only in the UK... I found pink crown candles in North Carolina that will do. For the cupcakes we found little toothpick crowns but they needed something so we added glitter.. and more glitter....
We love German glass glitter it's amazing!!!!!! Come back to see the final Grand Extravaganza!!! .She even had Princess sized treats for school...... Directly from the Princess mouth,"This was FABULOUS!"
