What better way to spend your last weeks of pregnancy than organising a Tangled birthday party for your daughter’s 3rd birthday?
To be honest I just loved doing it! I spent ages researching online for party ideas, dessert table inspirations and ways to combine it all and I have to admit I was pretty proud with the result!
This was my daughter’s first official party with her little friends so I really wanted it to be special! She’s in love with Tangled so I thought a Rapunzel party would have been the best theme for her birthday party.
As a little treat we gave each child a personalised cupcake topped with a Rapunzel character.
Like any good Italian mama I wasn’t sure how much food was enough food so I prepared different sweets and sour plates.
On the sweet side a part from cupcakes, I made blueberry pannacotta, french macarons, sugar decorated biscuits, chocolate covered cake pops and a big madeira cake filled with strawberry swiss meringue buttercream. On the savoury side I made pizza, tomato, mozzarella and basil appetizer and ham and cheese paninis.
Could not resist and filled few jars and party favours with marshmallows.
… attempted roses cupcakes…
and prayed God this tower would hold the weight of Rapunzel house! (under Maximus supervision)
I’ve always been in love with paper straws so bought them online and printed out some water bottles labels which I found on Catch my party website.
Very pleased with this drink dispenser which was bought from M&S at the last minute (it was out of stock for ages and only 4 days before the party it went back on stock – yeah!)
My husband helped me out to create these cupcake toppers. He honestly has more patience than me in creating little fondant figures.
And that’s my gorgeous daughter waiting for all her girlfriends to arrive at the party.
A part from the figures, the entire cake was edible as it was made using either fondant or buttercream.
And that’s us celebrating all together!
To entertain the girls we bought a cardboard castle which the girls loved! It was big enough for all of them to play inside plus they all had fun colouring and making it unique!
A huge thanks to my mom who spent AGES trying to cut out the fondant letters to make the Happy Birthday sign. The fondant kept sticking to the cutter as it was supposed to be rolled very thin and my mom had hard time to avoid the letters to break, but she did it and I thought it was a nice touch to the cake.
Buon compleanno Amore mio!
