Sofia The First Party

Happy Friday friends! It’s been a crazy summer full of birthdays and we just finished up Emma’s 4th birthday party last weekend. She is really into Sofia the First right now (a new princess) so she wanted a Sofia party. I was worried about topping last years party because Ms. Foofa herself came to her Gabba party, but I didn’t want to pay for a character again this year. So, I was hoping by getting Emma the princess Sofia dress would suffice, and it did. Whew!

For the party, we used a lot of purples, golds, and white and I thought it came out really pretty.

Here’s the princess herself.

I really can’t believe she’s 4.

When I put these pictures out the night before the party, I had a good cry fest.

Like, I couldn’t stop blubbering kind of crying. See, I can’t even talk about it. Let’s get back to Sofia.

I of course had my mom make another beautiful Rosette cake, this time in white so it could go on her pretty purple cake plate.

White Rose Cake

They are just the prettiest cakes ever!!

She made cupcakes too just like last time.

That were quite delicious I might add.

My mom also already had this cute little teapot that she found while antiquing one day, and I knew it would be the perfect prop.


One thing I didn’t have at Ellie’s Vintage Ballerina party were balloons. But I had a bunch for Emma.

And more of the princess herself…

Birthday Wishes

It was a great party and so many people came. The house was packed and I didn’t have enough of me. Luckily everyone helped which was so nice, but I am kind of bummed I didn’t get a picture with her that day. It’s hard to be the host, the photographer, kid watcher, and do everything else too. Next year I really want just one person to be in charge of taking photos. That’s the hardest part! I kept the food very simple and ordered the $5 pizzas from Dominos and made some fruit cups. Keeping the food simple really helped.

So that was our little Sofia the First party. Now I’m really freaking out she will be 5 next summer, and that means Kindergarten. So so sad. She’s really grown up now it seems. Luckily I have several more years before she would ask for something crazy like a Justin Bieber party or something. She doesn’t even know who Justin Bieber is, and I plan on keeping it that way, so I have nothing to worry about I hope! :)

Hope you all have a fab weekend!

  1. Aww I love those last two photos she looks so sweet!! You pulled it off again beautiful set up and your mom did another wonderful job! She should sell those cakes :)

  2. My daughter loves Sophia and would probably have loved this party too. I love that you kept it simple and took a cartoon and gave it a fancier feel.

  3. Fabulous party! She looks so darn cute!!

  4. What an adorable party! That cake your mom made is gorgeous and all of the table decorations and food looked fit for royalty! The little princess is so beautiful! My little grand daughter Abigail (turned 3 in Feb) loves everything princess! She has two dresses and all the little dolls. So cute but yes, they grow up so quickly! I’m glad everyone had a good time, especially the birthday girl! Hugs, Leena

    I love this party! My 3 year old adores Sophia. :)

  6. Wow, your Baby girl is so pretty. I love the cake roses. I used to have that exact teapot and in a fit of de-cluttering I got rid of it. I’m so mad, dang it, GAH, I hate decluttering!!! I make bad decisions!

  7. Beautiful party. Please, for the love of all things sacred, shield your children from Justin Bieber. I’m joking…mostly :-)

  8. Such a pretty party! That cake looks lovely.

  9. Sofia is adorable :) I love the purple accents and the cake! Gorgeous. Hopefully, the party I arrange for my daughter will be half as decent :) I can’t think of a good decor for her fairy-themed party except a couple of tabletop water features for the dessert buffet.

  10. Really nice party ideas! Everything’s so pretty! I love the cake, hope it tastes as good as it looks :)

  11. That white rose cake looks too good to eat… but I still would!

  12. Beautiful! Cute idea. Makes me want to have girls. Maybe, we could have a Prince party for my twins?

    I love the addition of the photo board! I did pics of my boys at 1st bday as ‘decor’ but hadn’t since.

  13. very cute party! and i like the way you used the upside down cake stand as a base for the lid/punch bowl. i have the exact same glass set, but it never occurred to me to use it that way. i’ve been looking all over for a large glass bowl for my little one’s first birthday party in september and i already have it. thanks for the tip!

  14. Your party was inspiring and I am so pleased I have now found Sofia The First is coming to the UK just intime for my daughter’s 4th birthday party! I found it on this website today – I was hoping my mum could make a cake like yours too – it’s beautfiul. Thanks for the blog. Love it

  15. Did you make the banner? Love it!!
