APRIL PIZANA PHOTOGRAPHY PRINCESS BIRTHDAY

 Where does one begin when trying to explain

and describe a fairy tale birthday?

big sigh…….

Once upon a time

I received a call from a super sweet lady

Shannon Addison.

I typically don’t do many events but it was

hard to resist considering she described her previous parties.

Truthfully, I am beyond swamped at the moment with Xmas minis,

my son’s birthday coming, impending garage sale that’s taking over

downstairs, yada yada yada….I digress.

Anyway, I decided I could use a little break from everything

and went for it.

Boy was that a good decision.

Don’t know if it’s the Libra in me that loves

aesthetics, my party-planner dreaming,

or just fate but the minute I drove up to the Addisons’

home and saw the big balloon entrance

I just knew it was going to be amazing.

One foot in the royal palace and

a striking bouquet and scent of gorgeous roses in

the shades of all that is pink and sweet in world

greet you at the door along with

snaps of Miss Alexandra.

I love when people remember to include these

personal touches.

Another angle b/c it’s hard to give you an idea of the grandeur

and scale.

Onto the sweets table.

Miss Alexandra had a decadent array of fairy tale

candy brought from all over the kingdom to satisfy even the

sweetest tooth of her royal guests including

candy necklaces and bracelets,

jewels, star cookies, crown cookies, gummies, macaroons,

chocolates, cupcakes, gourmet marshmallows, & hard candy.

Show stopping cupcakes

Not only wear the crowns edible (and delish)

but the cupcakes had a filling that was amazing!

Just thought you might want to know that they were equally

yummy as they were adorable.

All topped with an adorable princess barbie cake

which by the way was not the official cake….just wait!

All served with sparkling lemonades

by the butlers fit for Buckingham.

If you are noticing the amazing stationary you see not only on

the signage but also plates and more

and thinking…hmmmm I haven’t seen that pattern before….

You’d be correct.

Miss Alexandra had her own special branding done

for this royal event.

I’ll provide a list of vendors just as soon as I get my hands on one!

Onto Fairy Godmother’s Dress Shop.

Where pretend meets magic.

Little ones entering were smitten and dazzled to be

greeted by Cinderella, Aerial, and Princess Aurora.

Can you only imagine the little faces lighting up with

so many pretty fancy things to play with?

Jeweled rings,  pink pearls, and only the finest tiaras would do

for Princess Alexandra’s Royal Court.

If there are royal Academy Awards I definitely think Cinderella

deserves one. She brought so many smiles to all the princesses.

Who knew Princess Aurora had cosmetology skills!?

Each princess received a makeover complete with flawless party make-up

and jewels.
