Braylen’s Perfectly-Pink Princess Party

When I started planning Braylen’s party, I knew without a doubt that she would have a princess birthday party full of pink this year. I’m not sure when her love of all things pink started, but she’s maintained that pink is her favorite color for months. Her love for princesses and fairy tales grows stronger by the day. In fact, when talking about Disney World, I told her it is where the princesses live. She replied, Like at this house, ’cause a princess lives here. Of course, she was referring to herself.

She has asked consistently for the past few weeks, every morning, if  today was her party. I was so happy to finally tell her the big day was here when she woke up on Saturday morning. I should warn you that you’re about to experience an overload of pictures and the color pink.


We set everything up on the screened in back porch. It opens onto the back deck, where we set up tables and chairs for the party guests. I wanted the food to be quick and easy. We served turkey roll-ups, pigs in a blanket, pasta salad, fruit cups, and Braylen’s favorite, Goldfish crackers. I’m going to let the pictures do most of the talking.


You’ll see this sweet princess image around the party, the ladies at Sweet Birdie’s Nest came through in a huge way. I couldn’t have been more pleased with the things they created for the party.


For a quick and easy way to add a detail, I wrapped the top of picks with washi tape in coordinating party colors.




When it was time to sing Happy Birthday and blow out the candles, we switched a few trays of food out with trays of ice cream. I scooped the ice cream into pink baking cups the morning of the party. The party guests were able to grab a cupcake and ice cream and it made the process quick and easy.




It was hard to pull Braylen away from the bounce castle. She stayed in it most of the day. I did manage to get her to come blow out her candles and eat her cake.



I set up a table beside the door with a princess book for the guest to sign and party favors (water toys for the boys, princess hair bows and wands for the girls). More on those princess hair bows to come!

The drink table was set up opposite of the food table. It featured pink party punch and big pink buckets full of drinks.



Her birthday tablecloth complete with her 3rd birthday addition made an appearance on the present table. I wanted to make sure it was far away from the pink punch.


Lanterns hung from the ceiling fans and there were tons of balloons on the ceiling. I really wanted it to be like stepping into a different place, rather than onto our back porch. There were few things I absolutely had to have when we were searching for a new house, one of those was it had to have a great backyard and patio area for entertaining. It proved to be a perfect space and I can’t wait to have more celebrations here.


A few more party decorations.

The weather was perfect and our birthday girl had the best time. When I planned the party, I envisioned it being something like this, but the end result was way more than I could have imagined. The weeks leading up to the party were busy and chaotic, I bought things here and there, but I didn’t really start working on decorations until last Monday. My mom and my grandmother helped me a ton and I couldn’t have pulled it off without them. A huge thank-you to everyone who came out and celebrated our sweet girl’s special day. We are so very blessed by her and each of you.

    So cute! I had to pin it! 😉 Love that ruffle backdrop! It’s perfect for highlighting the food table and your adorable banner! I’m already planning Caroline’s 2nd birthday party and it’s not until August. I just love girly birthday parties! You did a wonderful job! I know it’s so much work to have at-home parties but they’re so special.

      Yes, but planning early means I get to buy things here and there :) I’ll try to narrow down a theme in the next few months for next year.
      Thanks for the sweet comment!

    You did such a good job, Jennifer! Braylen’s party looks like it was perfect:) Every little detail was obviously done with a whole lot of love (and a pink-loving 3 year old in mind!) The ruffled shower curtain was a perfect backdrop for the table. And that cupcake stand? Pretty impressive – your hubs is definitely talented!!!
