Tangled Birthday Party

DD#2 had her birthday over the weekend.  She wanted a Tangled party, but lots of her friends are boys so we tried to make it a gender neutral event. 

We couldn't do much about the cake.  Rapunzel is Rapunzel, after all.  But I was able to save $5.00 on the price of the cake by providing my own cake topper.  This is a toy DD#2 received for her last birthday.  I was really pleased with how the cake decorator matched the color of Rapunzel's hair to the toy I brought in.


We played "Pin the Tongue on Pascal."  This paper is a recycled blueprint from my dad & brother's construction company.  DH is a great artist and even teaches cartooning at our local community college.  He drew this great Pascal.  DD#1 helped color him and cut out tongues.

I bought 5 disposable 9' tablecloths at the Dollar Store and cut them in half length-wise.   For $5 we had 90 feet of "Rapunzel Hair" to tack up all over the house!

More hair.

These are mylar balloons I also picked up at the Dollar Store.  I found a template for the Disney Tangled sun emblem online.  I printed them on yellow cardstock and cut them out one evening.  I taped one big sun onto each balloon and they made great decorations!  These were also the gifts we gave our guests to take home.

We had a fun little party and DD#2 was happy with it which is what really matters.
