What started as a casual conversation with some 4-year-old preschool girls about dressing up as princesses… ended up being a full-blown magical unicorn marshmallow rainbow fairy tale Pink Princess Wonderland Party.
We had a pink throne, tiaras, Disney decorations throughout the house, a beauty station (where hot pink nail polish and bubble gum lipstick got a bit out of hand 😉 princess crafts … and a 3-course meal of mac ‘n cheese, heart-shaped PB&J sandwiches, and sprinkled cupcakes.
The best part was telling the girls how much God loves them, that they are daughters of the King, and that He is enthralled by their beauty…that real princesses are even lovelier on the inside than on the outside. We read this wonderful book and my sweet friend played a song she wrote about Queen Esther while the girls twirled and laughed. It was a more precious and blessed experience than I could have dreamed up.
P.S. I got to wear my grandma’s wedding dress (from 46 years ago!)
