THE INVITES - Save your sanity and do not do what I did, I love love love these Rapunzel invitations but they were time consuming and my Husband had to leave the house with the kids for a whole day so I could finish. The idea came from Supermom, if you are still interested in crafting your own.
This is a new design from minted by voss, if it had been available at the time I would have happily ordered these. It's a pretty design and it meets the color criteria of golden and purple!
THE LOCATION - Wonderwild was Rapunzel's request and they just happen to have a tower! I love Wonderwild, Mommy's choice too.
The cupcakes are from our grocery store, H-E-B, and easily personalized at home with fondant cupcake toppers, little works of art, so cute! The delicious toppers were created by Julie, owner of the Cakes and Kids shop on Etsy. Are you as happy as I am to see white icing at a birthday party? Rapunzel's friends came in costumes that needed to be worn the very next day for Halloween.
THE PARTY FAVORS - Paulie's cookies to take home! These pictures do not do the crown and the paint pallet cookies justice, they were gorgeous. I've started to give a $3-4.00 gift (like a cookie) as a thank you for coming rather than spend the time sorting goodies and stuffing bags. Paulie's was awesome and they customized our colors.
We put the cookies in purple glittered containers with handles and stuffed with "golden" tissue paper. The buckets I found in the Target $ Spot section, but I've seen them at Hobby Lobby as well.
Rapunzel's pizza has never touched a better plate in her eyes!
THE CHARACTERS - Rapunzel, Queen Mommy, King Daddy and Best Pal Pascal. At the end of Tangled the movie, Rapunzel is finally reunited with her Mom and Dad, that's us! The crowns are from Party City.
I was trying to be smart with this Rapunzel ensemble by not buying the expensive gown at the Disney store, at the time it was around a shocking $70, now a more affordable option is available. The braid was $20 from The Disney Store, the dress came with a soft crown headband for $30 from Target and she wore her own silver shoes.
This was the closest costume I could find to the chameleon Pascal, not easy! It's an Infant Gecko Costume from Amazon, I meant to curl the tail with a pipe cleaner but that didn't happen.
