My daughter just turned 4 today, and told me she would love an Ariel themed birthday party...not in those exact words...but I got it. :0) After googling a few birthday cake sights for ideas, this is my cake I came up with. My daughter had the flounder and Ariel doll, and I found the shells at the dollar store! I also split one frosting container in half, mixed one half turquoise and one half peach. Then I crushed some Graham Crackers for a 'sandy look'.
The Ariel themed birthday is stuck here and there, but really it turned into a Princess party. :0) I found the foam crowns, ribbon and foam glitter stickers at the dollar store as well!
Matching Princess decor? Another Dollar Store find. :0)
Pin the Crown on the Princess game= ONE dolla.
Had the glitter craft string on hand, but the beads were another find...score!
The velvet coloring Ariel's were found at the--what?...yes...the Dollar Store.
The grab bags I made from some scrap fabric, and they were filled with some of my daughters most favorite things. :0)
Nail polish, chapstick, play doh and Junior Mints. :0) ...and candy canes...not really her favorite, but I had them already...
Everything altogether cost a whopping 25 bucks. Not bad in trade of some fabulous memories. :0)
