My second oldest daughter recently turned 4-years-old, and in light of recently giving birth to our third baby girl, we managed to celebrate our little Cinderella with several of her sweet princess friends by having a Cinderella Ball Princess Party!
I displayed the glass slipper Cinderella didn't lose on the stairs of the Prince's Castle, in the center of the party decorations.
Yellow Tissue Daffodil
Smart Little Cookie Tip:
In place of making tissue balls, I made tissue flowers. To do this, I used half the amount of tissue asked for in these instructions from Martha Stewart: http://www.marthastewartweddings.com/article/pom-poms-and-luminariashttp://www.marthastewartweddings.com/article/pom-poms-and-luminarias; Love Martha!
Instead of fanning the tissue into a ball shape, I fanned the tissue out and teased it forward into a flower shape; I then used double stick tape to "arrange" the flower petals. I'm very happy with how they turned out and wish the tissue was floral scented!
Princesses need to look their very best for the ball, and every princess has her own unique personality;
they loved all of the pretty colors and stickers!

Bippity Boppity Boo-Freeze Dance
Before dancing, we made sure the glass slipper fit Cinderella's foot-it did!
The Party Favors
Among the treats in the party favors, were pumpkin sucker rings I found at orientaltrading.com. Of course each favor was finished with a homemade glass slipper tag. They fit the theme perfectly!
Chocolate cupcakes filled with a fresh strawberry filling and topped with a Strawberry Jam Buttercream-Yum!!
