Cinderella Party

On Saturday we hosted a Cinderella Party to celebrate the Disney Cinderella Diamond edition movie release. Our Royal Party was filled with plenty treats, games, and a whole lot of fun.We had a great time inviting friends over for a movie watching party and the girls dressed in their fanciest ensembles.

Planning this party was a lot of fun. We were headed on vacation and I knew I wanted to keep things as simple as possible. But that didn’t stop me from getting a little creative with the decor! The best part about it is I used items I already had on hand from my daughters Fancy Nancy party.

While browsing pinterest for Cinderella party ideas I found several Cinderella pumpkin carriages and I instantly fell in love with the idea. My main inspiration came from this Cinderella pumpkin. I didn’t actually assemble a carriage, mine was mainly just for decor. I simply purchased a glittered pumpkin and sat two mini white pumpkins against it. I added rhinestone scrapbooking brads to the center of each one to give them a little sparkle.

The pomander balls were from her birthday party that I’ve been using as decor in her room. Luckily the pink and glittered pins worked perfectly with our Cinderella party.

Then there’s the Cinderella glass slipper party favors I shared a few weeks ago. The boys were even excited about them, not that they would ever admit to it. I think the fact that there was candy inside the bags might have had something to do with it.

The pink feather boa wreath is also from her birthday. I simply tied blue ribbon from it to hang on the wall. I found the cups at Walmart when I went shopping for party supplies a few weeks ago. I have to say I’m really impressed with the design and the pink straws matched our theme perfectly.

Along with all the party fun we’ve been playing the Royal Ball app which might be the cutest app ever. It’s an interactive app that allows you to take pictures and see yourself within the app. You can design your own gown, carriage, and even dance in the ball room! It’s really cute, the app will tell you to spin left or right and spins with you. My daughter who loves to twirl around is really enjoying this on my iPhone.

Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Treats

Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Treats

During the week our morning routines can be a little hectic. At the beginning of every school year I have this big plan to organize our schedules and make promises that this will be the year we’re not rushing out the door. Unfortunately we have yet to master that schedule and on most days are left trying to find shoes and homework . On days like this, OK so on most days, I’m not able to make a big breakfast for everyone. This is when I’m happy my oldest prefers cereal over any breakfast food everyday. What we need in our busy mornings is a quick, simple, and wholesome breakfast to kick off our day. Now this isn’t to say we don’t love cereal on our calm, relaxed weekends. In fact every once in awhile we have a little fun creating new treats out of cereal. One of our favorites are Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Treats.

I recently received 5 boxes of Kellogg’s cereal, many already favorites in our household, but a couple that I’ve never tried. The Kellogg’s cereal I’m most impressed with is All-Bran. Right on the front of the box it says that there’s 10 grams of fiber in each serving. That’s very impressive for a cereal and if that wasn’t enough there’s also 4 grams of protein to help you feel full longer. It’s considered one of their heart healthy selections and I can definitely see why. This has quickly become one of my favorites along with my long time favorite, Raisin Bran. What I like about Raisin Bran is all the raisins you get in each bite, plus each serving has 7 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein. The kids have always liked Rice Krispies and my son recently tried the gluten free version. I have yet to try it but he really enjoyed it and I’m happy to know it’s made with whole grain brown rice.

What we like about Kellogg’s cereals is that there are very few ingredients involved, giving our family that wholesome breakfast we need in the morning. For instance did you know that Rice Krispies cereal has only 4 ingredients in it? It’s also fortified some seed-to-spoon with essential vitamins and minerals.

This past weekend we made Rice Krispies treats with a little twist. We added peanut butter M&M’s then added a light spread of melted peanut chips on top. These are definitely a must try, they’re delicious!

What are some of your favorite cereals?

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Kellogg’s. I received sample products to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item as a thank-you for participating.
