My niece is turning four this week. FOUR. How can she be four?! I saw her when she was minutes old (after waiting at the hospital for 17 hours). And now she’s FOUR?! *sniff*
She’s having a Strawberry Shortcake Princess party. You didn’t know Strawberry Shortcake was a princess? Well, I guess even fictional characters have to pretend. I just recently found out the theme of the party, so I didn’t buy a super cool themed present.
(However, I am thinking about buying her some strawberries and making a little card that says, “Happy Birthday! Love, Strawberry Shortcake.” Last year she had a Curious George party and I wrote “Happy Birthday! Love, Curious George” on a banana and left it on the gift table. She was terrified! But it was kinda funny.)
If I had been able to find a cool themed gift, I think it may have included some of this stuff. What do you think?
OK. Maybe some of them are a little odd for a four year old. Oh well.
Now, onto the question. The Strawberry Shortcake Princess invitation said to come dressed as a princess. You’d think this would be easy, right? My daughter is 2. She’s been to Disney twice. She probably has loads of Princess costumes.
Well, she’s still wearing size 18months. None of those plastic-organza monstrosities fit her! How can I throw together a cute Princess costume?
I googled “make your own princess dress” and found about NOTHING. I was hoping for one of those “get a sweatshirt, cut off the top, glue on a ribbon and look like Cinderella” type costumes. But I can’t find anything. Know what I’m talking about?
So, any ideas?
Oh yeah, the party is Sunday. As in tomorrow.
That gives you about 24 hours. Thanks!
