If you've followed my blog for the past several years, you know that Juliet has a history of asking for a party theme of which NO one has every posted on the internet. Meaning, I have no idea where to get ideas of how to make this thing happen. Last year, it was a doctor party. The year prior--a police party.
I am always scrambling about trying to find games and cupcake toppers and decorations, but we always end up making it all from scratch. Usually, it involves me covering a large box with contact paper and duct tape. (We made an ambulance one year and a police car for the other party.)
However, this year, the party gods smiled upon us and she asked for a Rapunzel party. A Tangled party to be exact, which is probably the most popular party on the internet. Thank goodness. All I had to do was do a quick Tangled party search and I found everything I needed in the way of ideas and more. (You can see my favorites on my pinterest party board.)
Not only that, but I walked right into walmart and found rapunzel plates, napkins, tablecloths, streamers, etc, so I didn't need to spend hours making anything.
It was all quite wonderful (and new!) for me.

stick tree incarnations) We hung up two Rapunzel ornaments left over from the Christmas tree and strung some pink flowers through it. My idea was to have the guest write birthday wishes on hearts to hang on the tree, but in the end only the grandparents did it. Kindergarteners really aren't up to writing down wishes. Maybe in a few years...
This giant yarn braid was also in the kids sale bag--I could never have had the patience to make one, but it was such a fun touch hanging there from the stairs! I was a bit afraid someone would try to climb it, but luckily, no one did. :)
Juliet had a wonderful time and I was happy to not have to turn a box into a vehicle this year. :) If I were feeling extremely ambitious, I would have tried to set the party around the beautiful and enchanting Rapunzel verison by Sarah Gibbs.
Have you read it? See if your library has it--it is one of my favorites!
