 This is what Bethany said about planning the party- “My daughter, Abby, is in loooooove with Merida from Disney’s Brave…..she loves the movie as a whole, but is particularly enchanted with Merida herself. I think it’s the hair, since my daughter also has wild red hair. So, we went with that and made the wild Merida hair one of our design focal points.

Once Jessica Flynn of Capture Photography nailed the design down, I was off and rolling. I had a particularly fun time planning the party activities. We had a Crafty Carver beading station, a archery contest, and a willo the wisp hunt — all very in keeping with Merida’s story. My daughter was thrilled to be included in the painting of both the Crafty Carver bead box and archery target (which also served as a dessert table backdrop), and also helped assemble the “willo the wisp” candies. By far, the biggest hit of the day was the willo the wisp hunt — the girls went wild for it!

Regarding food, I was thrilled to find a local baker who used the invitation as the inspiration for the cake design. And it tasted even better than it looked, which was quite a feat! I also hired Posh Desserts to provide the bear cub cake pops to represent Merida’s triplet brothers in the film — they were cute, perfect, delicious little bites of goodness. The “Merida hair” licorice and willo the wisp cotton candy cups were random strokes of genius while strolling through the aisles at Smart n’ Final . . . and I was pretty darn excited about how they turned out. :) Lastly, the bear paw cookies were actually a gluten free option based on a delicious recipe from Elana’s Pantry since several members of my family and friends are allergic to wheat.

This was definitely one of the most fun parties I have EVER put together — and my daughter’s sheer glee at the event made every ounce of sweat and money spent worth it. It was a joy to do and a complete success!”
