Last April, we celebrated the first royal birthday party of my dear goddaughter Nataniella Pierette. (Yes, she has no nickname.) When her Mama Niña called on us to help out with the party, there was no question we’d say yes. I mean, how can you say no to this beautiful little princess?
Her birthday falls on a Philippine National Holiday, so it was quite apt to note on the invitations that the King declared her birthday a holiday. Too cute!
There was a vision of guests entering a castle. Thanks to our suppliers, we managed to pull it off. Here’s what the guests see as they come in.
Scrolls for the table assignments were hung at the registration table.
Guests were asked to write greetings for the princess on mini scrolls.
These messages were hung on the Princess’ message tree.
We also made sure to remind guests to use a hashtag, so we can document the party via Instagram, too!
To keep things royal, each guest was invited to sport a crown.
We ordered large paper mache letters, and spray painted them in gold. The stage backdrop was also put together the morning of the event. Each rosette pinwheel folded individually by hand. (Read the tutorial HERE!) Since the stage didn’t have a backdrop, we got creative and used a bunch of pabitin lattice slats!
Niña had this great idea of making golden carriage centerpieces. These boxes were put together by hand, each flower stuck on one by one!
The kids on the other hand, had a more royal arrangement!
Along with a few other food carts, a face painting/makeup corner was available for the kids!
Princess Nataniella got a Royal Spread of sweets! Pam was the master baker for all the goodies. We had Grandeureos and Majesteclairs.
Valorous Vanilla Bites and Gold Shillings.
Succulent Fruit Tarts and a Flowing Fondue.
Jars of chocolates were topped off with mini crowns to make for a royal giveaway.
We dressed as royally possible. It was another fun day with a few of my favorite people!
Another party done with Pam and Niña! Love these girls!
