It’s official: Eve is 4 years old, and she had a birthday party fit for a princess.
We created an extremely inexpensive table setting by purchasing five plastic tablecloths in two different colors from the dollar store. You can replicate the look by using one color of tablecloth for your backdrop and base tablecloth. Then, use the three contrasting tablecloths to create the “curtains” and top tablecloth. I Cut 12″ sections from the bottom of the curtains for the bows. Then, I bustled the uppertablecloth and secured it with safety pins. I used a 12″ strip of the base tablecloth to create the bow on the table. Voila! A super cute tablescape for just $5.
Next, I created a custom Princess Silhouette. Remember the silhouettes I made for the girls’ room? I made an easy modification in PhotoShop by making the background and silhouette our party colors. I labeled it “Princess Eve” using my favorite Jellyka Delicious Cake font. This time I had it printed at Costco for just $2.99 and reused the frame we scored at JoAnn’s for $3.99.
- Make two folds on your napkin so the two outer edges meet in the middle.
- Then fold it one more time so that those two folds now touch back-to-back (and the side with those original outer edges is face out).
- On the folded side, cut a “V” into the napkin.
- Secure with a bow or glue a small piece of paper to secure, if desired.
That’s it! A festive napkin ring for no additional cost than the napkins and tableware you would have already supplied.
The center of attention on our Princess Party table setting was a sweet princess cake I got from our local bakery, Sweet Pea Cakes. I then topped it with a gold paper tiara I made using scrapbook paper from JoAnn’s on my Silhouette SD.
