Sofia's Birthday {Tangled}

Fall is finally upon us which means this mama is constantly BUSY! Both kids started sports for the first time so we are still adjusting to the new schedules... Anyway, my sweet daughter turned 5 and the day couldn't come soon enough for her. She was so excited to finally celebrate her birthday along with her friends. We so wish to be able to invite everyone but this year she picked her friends and we ended up with about 23 kids total! So blessed!
Our friend Mistie, one of Sofia's friend's mom, took some great pictures for me. I came across a site called Paint the Moon. Annie, the photographer, sells some awesome photoshop and elements Actions which I used to edit Mistie's pictures. Miss Sofia wanted a Rapunzel (Tangled) party so this was my first attempt at 1. Making a tower and 2. Making, said tower, with rice krispie treats. Ok, enough talking... Here are the pictures (lots of them!):

And here is a list of the different vendors I used:
Dress ~ Little Blue Boo
Hair Bow ~ Petal Patch Baby
Paper Straws/Balloons/Tissue Daisy ~ Polka Dot Market
Bottles ~ Specialty Bottle
Candy Rock/Gumball ~ Party City
Fabric Flowers ~ Leila's Flower Garden
Letter S ~ Decorated by me but purchased from Say it with letters
Cookies ~ Made by me but printed in edible paper with a design I bought on Etsy
Paper ~ Basic Grey 
Cake/Birthday Banner ~ Me :)... The Cake was a three layer cake (vanilla and chocolate mud cakes). I used my Silhouette machine to cut out the banner (by the way, there is a new machine available now! Just an FYI for all my crafty friends) and bought a 36"x48" canvas that I painted to use as a background to hang it from.
That's it my friends! It was fun working on this project for my sweet girl... Looking forward to the next year :)


  1. Love your cake. I will be trying my hand at this next weekend i hope it comes out as nice as yours


  2. Love this! So cute! My daughter and I love "Tangled"! :)

  3. WOW What an awesome job! The cake is breathtaking! My daughter Sophia will be 5 on Oct 25 and we are having a Halloween party for her. Her costume is Rapunzel. I don't know if I can make a cake that looks this good but I'll give it my best shot! Thanks for sharing! :)

  4. I'll gladly welcome my tangled hair for a party like this any day!

  5. I'm visiting from Lil Blue Boo and had my daughter not turned 5 on the EXACT same day as your daughter, I may have given this a try. Happy 5th birthday to your beautiful little girl!

  6. Thanks everyone for your kind messages!
