Disney Party for a 4-Year-Old Princess

When our Little Monkey decided she wanted an "Ariel Party" we knew just who to call.

And when she then decided that the party would no longer be limited to Ariel but had to include "all of my Disney friends" we knew that with the help of a few themed balloons and a the a sweet table by the incredibly talented Joanna, Disney would be well represented on her special day. 


Our guests ranged in age from 1-6.

The birthday girl had a blast and is already planning her big #5. Which she has decided will be a Frozen Party. Or a tea party. Or...

Disney Frozen Party!

Chicago's Polar Vortex was one for the record books this year. So it seemed only appropriate, that in the midst off all of the snow and ice, that we throw a Frozen party! Within 24 hours of posting the event, it had completely sold out. We knew we had to make the party extra special for all of the little princes and princesses who would be joinining us.

We called our favorite princess purveyors and within moments of our call, Anna and Elsa had added a stop at Purple Monkey Playroom to their busy travel schedule. 

We also ordered up our very first sweet table and Joanna didn't dissappoint! Cupcakes with edible white chocolate toppers, Elsa and Anna cake pops, dipped oreos, and chocolate pretzel rods added an absolutely magical touch to the playroom.

We had a healthy breakfast spread of bagels, fruit, yogurt and granola from our sponsor, Jolly Oak, to offset all the sugary goodness. Along with plenty of coffee and tea for moms and dads.

And, of course, we enjoyed plenty of good, old-fashioned play!
