The Snow White Party

Lydia’s 3rd birthday party was an absolute, unmitigated, totally amazing and electrifying success. OK, maybe I’m exaggerating a little. But it was incredibly fun!

Of course, the first and best part was our little Snow White herself. She wore her Halloween costume and the second it fell on her shoulders, she was transformed into a princess. She sashayed and twirled the rest of the day.

We were not alone in our costume-ing. Several of our guests dressed up, too! There is nothing more fun than opening up the front door to a couple of dwarfs or a princess and a pirate! Not to mention when half the guests are dressed up, there’s no need for decorations! (How’s that for frugal?!)

My favorite part of this party was the games…well, I don’t do games, these were stations. We had a Magic Mirror station… (aka, a giant mirror screwed to the wall with Crayola Window Markers)

who's the fairest of them all?

A Royal Ring station…

see the ring? cute, huh?

I found this great blog with directions for making rings out of pipe cleaners and plastic jewels. Well, I posted directions but the kids ended up being more creative than me! The rings were absolutely adorable!

A Make your Own Dwarf Mask station…

cheesy the dwarf

I bought the masks from Oriental Trading Company. They were actually scarecrow masks. We cut one side of the hat off, added some yarn and squares of fabric and it looked just like a dwarf! Kinda.

A do-it-yourself Scavenger Hunt…

I printed out pictures of all the dwarfs, Snow White and the Prince. I taped them up all over the house.

Then each kid got a card and when they found the matching picture, marked it off their card. When they found all the pictures, they came to me for a prize. Everyone won at their own pace! (*You can print your own Snow White Scavenger Hunt Card and use to your heart’s content!*)

And the pièce de résistance: The Seven Dwarfs Mine.

the mine

Oh yes, it opened at 2:30 and when the self-proclaimed Queen Grandmama (aka my mom) invited all the guests into the mine, everyone was given a plastic spoon and the digging began!

so, it was a little mine...

I actually drove to Dahlonega (the site of the first major gold rush in the US about 1828) and bought two bags of dirt filled with gems from Consolidated Gold Mine. I was surprised how big the rocks were! Here’s Lydia’s stash…

nice stash, huh?

  1. You know, I’m never letting my kids or anyone else in my family read your blog. My gatherings totally bite compared to yours! You’ve raised the bar, my friend! :-)

  2. ohmygosh that mine is too cute! Looks like you guys had so much fun!

  3. Wow, Amanda! That is fabulous! I thought I did it big with 2 stations and a dinosaur themed cake…

  4. Oh my word, that party looks the best! If I were a three year old girl, I would’ve had a blast. Actually, I would’ve had a blast anyway. That is such a neat idea for a party theme. And Lydia looks adorable! x

  5. The dwarves and I had a FABULOUS time! Thank you so much for having us. They are still sorting their “gems” and talking about the caramel…oops…don’t want to give anything away!

    Loved it. Great job, Queen Mama!

  6. What a totally cool mom you are!!! I hope Lydia remembers her fabulous birthday parties forever! Of course this does mean that for the rest of us lame-o moms out here, you’ve reset the bar from ‘high’ to ‘too high’! :)

  7. That was not only a beautiful party – but also a little girl’s dream come true…which is rather the best part, isn’t it?

    I’m impressed you were able to do all that, with the Pirate being so little! Thanks for sharing. :D

  8. oh what a party it was!

  9. It was a magical party!! I agree that the mine was the best!! You did great, Amanda.

  10. When we left Evan said “it was nice in there” … I know that doesn’t sound like much but the way he said it was classic – he had a lot of fun!

  11. Very cute party!

  12. Fun, fun, fun!

  13. Aww… looks like it was a lot of fun!

    We had a great time! Thanks for inviting us. Lydia was precious and it was great to see your mom again. Now, what do you have planned for Asa’s big 0-1? Not that it’s anytime soon, but I know you’ve got something cookin’ in that noggin’…

  15. Very cool! Those dwarf outfits are so stinkin’ cute!

  16. Oh, wow! You are so creative. My girl is 2.5 so this is inspiration for the near future.

  17. Wow! what a resource ! Amazing …

  18. Hi there,

    Thanks!

    What a fun party idea! My daughter is totally obsessed with Snow White and wants a Snow White themed party for her 4th b-day. Thanks for sharing all your ideas:)

    If you would not mind sharing where you got the snow white costume I would appreciate it. Love the Cape!!! When my girl saw the picture she said, “Oh mom… she looks just like Snow White:)”.

  20. Thanks so much for posting all of this! My 3yo is obsessed with the seven dwarfs and marches around the house with his “pick” singing HI-HO. He’s turning 4 soon and I can’t think of any other themed party he would want more. So this is very helpful. Thanks again.

  22. Excellent list of galleries I was already using few of it. however it is good to know more. One more great css showcase http://www.csstrophy.com.

  23. My daughter will be turning 5 a week before our son turns 1, and she has asked to have a joint birthday party. (And made it abundantly clear it *has* to be a Snow White party. Perfect for a boy/girl joint party, huh? ;)) I thought the dwarf outfits were absolutely darling! And such a great idea! Would you mind sharing – or sharing a link – how you made the hats?

  24. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
