Mirror Mirror on the Wall...who had the greatest 4th birthday of them all...

My beautiful 4 year old had a fun filled Snow White Party. She is a pretty typical 4 year old girl in that she is obssessed with the Disney princesses. After going through several possible princess party themes she settled on Snow White, of course insisting that Snow White actually make an appearance. I love the colors of Snow White, the red/blue/yellow combination is such a vibrant color collection so I tried to incorporate that as much as possible and not be too 'commercial' with the party. Of course Pinterest is another great source for ideas! That where I got some of the cutest ideas, like the apple cupcakes.

For the cake I wanted to do something different than a traditional Snow White cake. Last year I did the doll cake for her Tinkerbell birthday so I didn't want to do that again. When I saw this idea on Pinterest I knew it would be perfect, especially with the trademark red bow on top that makes everyone think of Snow White. The cake was a triple layer chocolate cake but only six inches so it still was petite enough to fit into the tea party theme.

Dessert tables are always my favorite party when planning any party event. I'm always looking for new ideas and creative twists on traditional treats. On The Sugar Diva's website I found cute stripped and polka dotted straws that were fun for the drinks and also for the marshmallow pops. They have a ton of colors but I of course stuck with red, blue and yellow.

Since a big part of Snow White takes place in the woods I purchased some moss mats and log stumps. I wanted some apple trees as well but since I was making apple cupcakes I made my own apple trees. I found The Pastry Pedestal on Pinterest and thought it would be a perfect way to display the cupcakes amongst some branches.

I kept the food very simple. Tea sandwiches with fruit and chips. I served the fruit and chips in small blue and yellow cups so each girl could take what they wanted.

For the actual tea party table I rented a small, child size banquet table with twelve little chairs. Perfect for the 4 year old guests, but also would have been perfect if any of the 7 dwarf's stopped by. I am really into chevron stripes right now so I got a great chevron striped runner and then chevron napkins that were folded with a flower. An eclectic collection of tea cups and some party favors finished off this amazing table.

A real Snow White was the topper for this party. My daughter and her friends were so excited when she arrived. Snow White read stories to the girls, painted faces and taught them proper tea party etiquette. She also crowned the birthday girl "Princess for a Day."

I used some amazing vendors for this party! Here is list of the vendors and the products I used:

Oriental Trading Company - lanterns above the dessert table, goody boxes and apple lables.
C & C's linen company - Chevron napkins
The TomKat Studio - fruit cups and small white boxes (on the tea party table)
The Sugar Diva - striped and polka dot straws
Speciality Bottle - lemonade bottes
Save on Crafts - tree stumps and moss mat
Ashley's Party Inspirations - invitations, goody bag labels and favor tags
Fairy Dream Wear - the birthday girl's outfit (she does lots of designs and themes)

Thank you to everyone who made this party possible!



I'm wanting to replicate your witch in the mirror that is hanging just above all those scrumptious goodies. How did you get the queen's picture in the mirror?
