Planning a Royal Gala (or two)

Next week my little girl turns 3 and to celebrate we are rolling out the red carpet and turning our home into a castle.  Lil'C is all about Cinderella and the rest of her royal friends and has requested a special "Princess Party".  There will be two parties, a brunch for her little friends and an afternoon gala a few days later for family.   The past two weeks have been spent planning and working on the party.  I made a video movie invitation (starring my amazing husband and Lil'C herself), turned old floor mats from my mom's classroom into swords and shields for the Knights in attendance, made a mural of a castle for the playroom and so much more. 
I love birthday parties and all of the creative energy that goes along with it.  I do tend to go overboard but it is hard not to get swept up in the fun of planning these parties.  My little angel's enthusiasm is enough to keep any tired momma going strong.  "Ooooh is that for my princess party??" and "Thank you for my party Momma!" are sweet words to my ears :)
