Disney Princess Spa Party with TownleyGirl

This review is based on my opinion. I was provided the sample free of charge by
TownleyGirl.  All ideas and opinions are my own.

Do you have a little one that is Disney Princess obsessed? TownleyGirl has got you covered for all your princess party needs! From party activities to party favors, you can throw your little princess the magical party of her dreams! 

This is a fun party activity that the guests are sure to love!  Place the Disney Princess 18 Pack Nail Polish Set around a sheet of paper with the words "spin the bottle" printed on it. Then arrange the nail polishes in a circle and have each guest spin the arrow. Once the arrow stops spinning, the little guests paints one nail the color the arrow lands on. By the end of the game, the girls will have beautiful rainbow colored nails!

These polishes are perfect for this game with how quick drying they are. And if the girls want to play again, the polish can easily be peeled off and a new game can start all over! 

Belle herself would adore this idea! Create a sweet reading nook for the guests to read all about their favorite princesses. Set out several books for the kids to choose from and provide some yummy treats to nibble on as the little guests read all about their favorite princesses and their adventures.

Have the little princesses gather around Rapunzel's Beauty Parlor to create fun hairstyles using Disney Princess Hair Brushes , Disney Princess Dress-It-Up Hair Bows and Disney Princess Hair Bows. Girls will love adorning their lovely locks with these darling supplies. 

 Place a few sets of Disney Princess 12 Piece Press-On Nail Sets out for the girls to play nail salon. These fun princess press on nails are sure to be a hit at the princess beauty salon!

Disney Princess Lip Balms  fit perfectly inside tiny favor boxes. Match them up with their favorite princess using  the Princess Nail It Tie It Beauty Set.

Little girls will love stepping into Cinderella's Dress Boutique to try on all the beautiful princess dresses the boutique has to offer. From Snow White to Belle and every princess inbetween, the girls are sure to find a dress that perfectly suits her every princess wish.

After the girls have finished dancing and twirling in their princess dresses, hand out these fun gift bags for the girls to take home to paint their own nails
Disney Princess My Beauty Spa Nail Polish Kit and Disney Princess Blinged-Out Kiss it Paint it Set are placed into cellophane bags with a little princess sleep mask. How adorable are these favors?!

Spoil the little princesses with one more take home favor with these Disney Princess Gem-Tastic Lip Gloss Sets placed inside paper cones. The guests will love these sweet and unique favors and will have a ball applying sparkly lip balms!

Every little girl is a princess, that's for sure! I know our little guests had a wonderful time at our Disney Princess Spa Party and we're so thankful to TownleyGirl for making all the little girls' dreams come true!

Party Like A Narwhal

This post contains affiliate links. 

narwhal is an elusive creature but I'm pretty sure it knows how to party. After all, it's the unicorn of the sea and we all know unicorns know a good party when they see one! 

I've always wanted to throw a narwhal party and was so excited when I finally had the chance to have one. I wanted to keep the party sweet and simple but I also wanted it to have a big impact with the little guests. I think it did just that!

The adorable party narwhal cake topper was the inspiration for the party. The light blue and pink polka dots became the color palette  so it was easy to find decor to match. 

Cake is a must for any party and I made a boxed cake using two round pans. I then rolled out marshmallow fondant to cover it. By mixing one piece of white fondant with a piece of pink fondant together, it came out as a beautiful swirled watercolor look that I loved. Of course the narwhal had to top the cake along with candies and "Party Like a Narwhal" cake topper. 

I kept the snacks simple and served narwhal nibbles (popcorn) and ocean water ( plain old water...but the kids thought it was hilarious they were drinking water from the ocean!) The guests loved coloring pictures of their own little narwhal and loved adding stickers and sparkles to their pages.

Each little guests received a narwhal headband, goodie bag filled with sweets and a mini narwhal plushie. 

We all had a blast and partied hard, just like a narwhal
