Vida's 3rd Birthday Cinderella Party







Vida has been in love with the new Cinderella movie since it came out on DVD last year. For being a live action film, she can watch the whole thing beginning to end and loves the part where Ella rides her horse, this girl loves horses.
So I decided to do a Cinderella theme party for her, but have the party be more about Ella's beautiful childhood. I love the beginning scene of her and her mom in the garden, surrounded by flowers and animals. I wanted to incorporate that into the party, and living in Germany, wildflowers are everywhere and growing right in our backyard.

I rented a few vintage pieces for the party. This flower stand is just so stunning.

I totally forgot to take a photo of the bread bowl I made to look like a carriage, I cut out some bread into wheels and attached the to the sides of the round bread bowl
