Beauty & The Beast Party | Tale as Old as Four...

The past few months have been a bit of a whirlwind. I'll admit I'm struggling a bit getting my mojo back - balancing 2 kids and being back to work full time is a balancing act I haven't yet mastered.  Some things fall to the bottom of the priority list but I still love a good party!



Aggie's fourth birthday was celebrated with a Beauty & The Beast theme and a house full of 4 year olds. I went pretty simple on the decor this time around - a rose in a cloche, an antique clock and a stack of books decorated the cake table.  A small table with a selection of tiaras and crowns and septors made up a "Coronation Station".  A simple DIY bellini bar that was much appreciated by the parents (non alcoholic "princess punch" was an option for the kids) and a grilled cheese station rounded out the menu.  For entertainment, we went full on cheese and had Beauty & the Beast stop by to read stories and sing songs.  It was an exhausting day but this age is so magical and she loved every minute.  I'm glad we got to do it for her.

  2. I love the Beauty and the Beast party and she chose to wear her Princess Aurora costume. Adorable!! I loved when my girls were that age and I never knew which princess would come down the stairs each morning.

    1. If you look under the photo in the bellini bar post link you can see a list of items I used to set up the bar. Some of them are linked like Blood Orange and Prickly Pear Sodas. The other items aren't listed just because there isn't much to say about them but since you asked here is wine the at I set out:
      - sparkling wine (or you can use good champagne if you are fancy)
      - a variety of fruit flavored sodas to sub for champagne for the kids/those not drinking
      - 3 fruit nectars to mix with the champagne ( I used apricot, pear and peach)
      - garnish choices were cheerries, lychees or raspberries. I didn't photograph them but I also put out frozen peach slices to serve as ice. Those were big hits.

      I think that's it! Hope that helps.
