First things first... the cake.
So as the girls arrived I had some Tangled coloring pages out on the table and we started the movie in the background. (Having the movie on was really great. The girls sang along to the songs while they were doing stuff and anytime they weren't actively doing something they could watch the movie.) Once all the girls arrived we made Gold Sun Necklaces. What 7 year old girl doesn't like beading right?
The great thing about beading was that they finished at different times, so as the girls got done, I had them get food and there was never too much congestion at the food table.
For dinner we had Hazelnut Soup, Orange Biscuit Braids and Orange Butter, with grapes and veggies. I was surprised at how many girls ate the soup and liked it. Surprisingly Hazelnut soup is good.
I had done Emma's before the party so I would have one less head to braid at the party. I also made Emma's longer and thicker than the others (She is the birthday girl after all).
They all LOVED getting "Rapunzel hair." As soon as each girl was done she was twirling and dancing, and singing. It was really cute. To help things keep moving along, once all the girls were done eating, we let Emma open present while I was finishing up the last few braids.
Sadly I over planned and we ran out of time to paint on the walls and play pin the nose on Flynn Rider. :( Basically they were just having to much fun and I really should have made it a 3 hour party.
Anyway, we had to make sure we left enough time for the big finale.
Flying paper lanterns. This was so much fun! The girls were literally SCREAMING with excitement. Just a few words of advice with these. I think the smaller ones would be easier to handle. The ones I bought were pretty big. I bought one for each girl, but you really need 1 adult for each one lit so we only ended up lighting about 4 or 5 over them. Maybe only buy like one or two. It is a group effort to get them up into the air and everyone has fun with just one. Also I tied a string to them. For some crazy reason the idea of lighting a paper lantern on fire and then just letting the breeze take it where it will made me nervous. So I would suggest using a kite string so you know where it is, but it has enough slack to fly where it wants.
As we were finishing up with the lanterns parents were coming so we gave each girl a balloon and a treat bag and they were off.
So I had made two treat bags that had things like a Spiderman pencil, Flynn Rider stickers, lizard tattoos, yellow play dough, and no lip gloss for Alan and Logan and once all the girls were gone and I went to get the boys their treat bags there was only one boy treat bag and one girly treat bag. So some poor little girl took home what I am sure seemed like a very random treat bag. Oh well.
