Disney Kids Princess Playdate! #DisneyKids

Thanks to Walt Disney World & Mom Select for sending me the great party items to host this playdate! All opinions are my own.

We hosted a #DisneyKids playdate! And you're invited to join us - on YouTube!!

Check out our party overview in this video!

The girls arrived in their favorite princess dresses and my two dressed up as well! Bella chose her Sofia the First outfit - and Natalie wore Elsa AND Anna at the party! (That's so Natalie!)

My girls were so excited to host a princess playdate for their friends! This year, we hosted an all girls party and decided to go with a princess theme! As the girls entered, we gave each of them a Sofia the First amulet and as they went around to each station at the party - they could "summon" a different princess to help them out - just like Sofia does in her stories!!

We had a number of different stations, including:
- Elsa's Skirt Making Station
- Aurora's Fairy Bag Making Station
- Anna's Egg Hunt
- Ariel's Snack Station
- Cinderella's Ball Room (Playroom)
- Rapunzel's Treat Tower

Check them out in this video!

Coming up, I also will be sharing an up close look at what was in the treat bags! Look for that in a future post!

The girls had a great time and we made a lot of magical memories! It was a wonderful way to celebrate during Easter weekend - and also a great way to get in the Disney spirit as we prepare to head back to Walt Disney World VERY soon!! Disney vlogs will be coming your way shortly! Thanks again to Walt Disney World & Mom Select for the amazing opportunity to spend a magical afternoon with our friends!

All videos from our #DisneyKids playdate were filmed with a Canon G9X camera.

It's Disney Party Time!! #DisneyKids Playdate Pack Unboxing!

It's Disney Party time!!

Thanks to Disney Parks and Mom Select for this amazing box of goodies, we will be hosting a #DisneyKids Princess Playdate in the upcoming weeks! We're looking forward in sharing the magic of Disney with our friends!!

Check out our unboxing on YouTube!

The box contained lots of goodies to host our party, including plates, cups, game materials, and even an awesome Sofia the First suitcase from American Tourister! (Which is going to be awesome on our upcoming trip to Walt Disney World!) Check out the unboxing to see what all was inside and what parts were the girls' favorites!

For the party, we will be inspired by our favorite Disney Junior Princess, Princess Sofia! My plan is to welcome the girls by giving them each their own amulet, and then having different party stations where different Disney Princesses have been "summoned" to help us out with that station! (i.e. Ariel's Snack Station, Elsa's Skirt Making Station, etc.) I can't wait to share the ideas I've come up with for the party!

We will be hosting our party in a few weeks and will be sure to share all of the events!

Princess Inspired Easter Baskets!

More of these adorable Princess inspired Easter basket DIY videos are headed your way at the end of the week! I was so thrilled with how the Rapunzel inspired basket turned out, that I also made a tutorial for Anna & Elsa from Frozen Fever!

The basic instructions for each basket are the same, with some slight differences to the colors used, braids, and also embellishments used - however once you have the skirt technique down, the possibilities are endless!

Here are the video tutorial instructions for the first basket I made, inspired by Rapunzel!

I found all of the supplies, along with the baskets at Hobby Lobby and also had the yarn on hand from previously making the princess dress-up braids.

I've also had requests for an Ariel one, American Girl inspired basket, and also ideas for boys baskets - so I'm hoping to work on those in the next week or so! What kind of Easter basket DIY designs would you like to see or are you working on? If you make your own Princess inspired basket, I would love to see on Instagram! Tag me @beingmommywithstyle or #beingmommywithstyle to check them out!

Princess Inspired Easter Basket DIY Craft - RAPUNZEL Basket!

This is probably one of my FAVORITE crafts that I've done recently! I was inspired to start working on Easter crafts and one of the things I wanted to do was turn regular Easter baskets into Princess inspired baskets! This is the first one that I did, and I thought it turned out adorable!

The Rapunzel inspired basket uses two of the craft techniques that I've used in the past to do DIYs, and puts them together! I previously have made the girls tulle dress up skirts and also yarn braided dress up braids - this basket puts both of those concepts together on one basket!

You can follow the quick and easy tutorial on how to make your own princess inspired basket in this video!

What type of princess basket would you want to make?
