Kate's 4th birthday party was her fairytale come true!! Her request....a Belle party. So, we delivered! With the recent release of the 25th anniversary edition of Beauty & The Beast, timing couldn't have been more perfect to play with this theme!! And, for those of us who remember the original movie release, it was super fun to reminisce.
Party guests were greeted in the yard by a hand painted, pink frame full of the most well-known character silhouettes from the film.
Kate's dessert table pulled imagery from the film in coloring and deconstructed concepts. The custom made yellow table skirt played homage to Belle's stunning ball gown. Iconic character silhouettes were displayed in ornate, pink frames against a white floral textured backdrop. To pull the pink coloring through the base of the table's design, we added a printable Happy Birthday banner from end to end.
Beauty & the Beast Desserts
Kate's two-tiered birthday cake created by Dessert Happiness also pulled inspiration from Belle's dress as the base tier with yellow swags and rose details. To keep the design simple and modern, our top tier was simple white buttercream and we opted for a single "4" gold glitter topper for personalization. Rose buttercream cupcakes, also pulling from the rose in the film, were displayed on stacked books. For added dessert variety, we also offered a gorgeous set of personalized sugar cookies; tea pots, Belle dresses and floral details.
Guest seating indoors was formal, with tables draped in floor length linens, white chivari chairs and stunning florals. The table was set using these ornate gold paper plates, using 3 coordinating, yet different patterns for visual interest and contrast. Two gold candlebras with florals around the base were displayed on each of the long guest tables along with a coordinating floral in between. For fun, we set Chip and Mrs. Potts cutouts in the room, which were also prime photo ops for party guests.
Throughout the party, guests were entertained with over-sized cardboard coloring castles, DIY princess crowns, Pin the Kiss on the Frog and of course, an appearance from Belle herself, along with her princess pal Cinderella.
Guests selected from among sweet hand mirrors or royal scepters as their party favors with tags that read, ”Thank you for being our guest”, inclusive for both genders attending Kate's party!
We hope you enjoyed, "Being our Guest" at Kate's 4th birthday party and that you gained inspiration for your next event!
