Caileigh's 3rd Birthday!

This post is a little delayed- but finally, here is Caileigh's 3rd Birthday Party! Since her birthday was only a few weeks after my due date with twins, I decided to have it at a local gymnastics gym. They let me bring in any decorations that I wanted to- so she still got her 'Tangled' themed party! 
 Above it dessert buffet. If you have watched "Tangled", you know the sun is a pretty important part of the movie. The "Snuggly Duckling" was the pub that Flynn Rider took Rapunzel to!
Jen from Elemental Cookies made the apple cookies for Maximus. Luckily, Maximus didn't eat them all, so we got to enjoy their delicousness! 

The Rapunzel- colored cake was also delicious and created by Olicious Cakes


 Since Rapunzel spends her spare time painting, I created an "Art Studio" as favors. I bought a giant box of crayons (800!) and tins. I ordered stickers to personalize them from VistaPrint. Each child got to create their own box of crayons. (I really thought the girls would pick all purple and pinks and the boys would go towards blues- but surprisingly, all of the colors went equally!)
Each guest also got a mini-easel and coloring page! 
I can't believe my little girl is 3!!
