I have three girls so we’ve done a few princess themed parties. This one happens to be centered on Rapunzel or Tangled, if you wish! She has a certain appeal with her long flowing hair and her funny sidekick Flynn Rider. My daughter chose Tangled because she was growing her hair out and was attempting to grow it as long as Rapunzel. She eventually gave up and got tired of it taking so long to brush all the tangles out. Now she has short hair but she of course still loves Rapunzel!
This is my Rapunzel tower. I made it from a cake baked in a bowl for the base. Decorated that with green frosting and used the Wilton grass tip #233. Then I stacked 7 donuts on top of each other. That was about as a many as I could stack without them tipping over. Then there were two cupcakes stack end to end on top of each other with a frosting covered sugar cone for the top. I added vines and flowers along the sides to make it look like a tower instead of just a tower of donuts. There were decorated cupcakes for the “cake” part since the tower itself didn’t provide much for the kids to eat! I added a little Tangled twist by covering a large board with Tangled wrapping paper. It provides such a great background and it is pretty grease resistant to the frosting and cake!
Food: Princess sandwiches: small bite size mini sandwiches
Fruit kabobs on sticks (you can cut out hearts from watermelon using cookie cutters)
Dipped pretzels or fruit in white chocolate with sprinkles
ACTIVITIES: Here the kids are bobbing for apples but the apples are tied to strings hanging from the tree! We thought the typical apple bobbing was to ordinary so we tried this version! It was hilarious to watch! They had to work hard just to get their apple to stay still while they tried chomping into it! After awhile, some of them finally started to get the hang of it!
These are simple Paschal party blowers. I made these little chameleon Paschals out of fun foam. You make two triangles and cut off the ends to get the face. Glue them together with the party blower in between, coming out of his mouth. Very fun for the kids! They love party blowers but they were even more fun pretending to be chameleons sticking their tongues out!
DECORATIONS: We made paper lanterns like there are lit up lanterns in the movie. We hung our lanterns from the tent we set up. Our party was during the day but paper lanterns hung with strings of Christmas lights would be very festive! Our lanterns were made with 12 X 12 scrapbook paper. We used different patterned colors. Fold each paper in half and cut strips 1 inch apart starting on the fold. Leave one inch at the bottom of your cut. After you have cut your slits in the paper. Open up your paper so the colored side is out. Bring the two edges together and tape. Add a handle for your lantern.
