Vintage Cinderella Pumpkin Princess Party Details:
This is what Brianna said about planning the party- ”This party was created for my daughter Ainsley. She was born on Halloween and we have called her “Pumpkin Baby” since she was born. She loves princesses, as most girls do, and Cinderella happens to be her favorite. She cried the first time she saw Cinderella’s pumpkin carriage being trampled by the King’s horseman, so it made perfect sense to use the carriage as the base of our theme. There have been so manyCinderella parties over the years and I wanted to make her happy with a Princess theme, but still keep it unique and special…something just for her. So, our Pumpkin Princess theme was born! The color scheme was gold, aqua blue, mint green, peach, and coral. I chose these colors after seeing them in the autumn evening sky on our drive home from the apple orchard. I transformed a vintage pumpkin clip into a carriage by adding twirling vintage vines for the wheels and changing the color from orange to a soft coral peach. This created a one of a kind clip, never used before, and made specifically for our Pumpkin Princess.
We started our dessert table with the cake design of Buttercream roses and fondant polka dots. Our party was being held out of town, so we were lucky to find a local baker to bring our vision to life. The topper was a pumpkin carriage with the number 3 on it and Ainsley’s name was displayed on the front of the cake. Three aqua candles gave the finishing touch. A little blue bird plate held blue Sixlets, that look just like Drizella’s beads. Gumball pearls hung from little stands filled with orange macrons and coconut topped meringues. Pumpkin flavored cake pops were drizzled in peach colored white chocolate and placed on an ivory bow plate. Pumpkin shaped rice crispy treats were placed on white doilies and displayed on a gold pumpkin candle stand and a small cake stand. Buttercream frosted sugar cookies were shape like peach pumpkins. Pretty turquoise and peach “magic wand” star lollipops were served in lace cut tins. Gold and Ivory bow topped chocolate covered oreos were placed on coral plates.
The backdrop was made from curtain panels of lace and tulle. We also used the lace curtain panels for table covers. Tissue paper tassels were draped along the top and on the food table. Ainsley’s favorite line from Cinderella is “Oh that clock! Kill joy!” right before the song A Dream Is A Wish. She dramatically quotes this line every time she spots a clock, and it has always been a comical thing to hear. We of course had to include a clock for her and we happened to find the gold and ivory clock displayed at an antique shop for just $2.00. We scattered pumpkins throughout the tables and tent. A pull string piñata in mint green (originally purchased in another party theme) was easily redesigned to match our theme using gold ribbon and a sign printed at a photo finisher and trimmed down from size 16×20. Clear disposable/recyclable serving dishes were purchased at Dollar Tree to make clean up faster and easier. They displayed port wine cheese shaped into a pumpkin, kettle chips with dip, and flower shaped pasta salad. A variety of sandwiches were served in a wooden basket. Other foods were kept inside away from the wind. Color coordinating Izzy drinks in Grapfruit and Clementine flavors were wrapped in custom bottle wraps and served alongside mini bottled organic apple juice and bottled water.
Each child left the party with a berry basket full of party favors, candy from the piñata, and a mini pumpkin. Salt Water Taffy and Mini Cotton Candy packaged in peach lace printed bags were set out for everyone to take home as well”.
