Little girls love princess parties, and mine certainly are no exception to the rule, however an ordinary princess party simply wouldn’t do for my daughter…she wanted a Peacock Princess party.
And of course, I said yes! She was obsessed with a peacock costume she had gotten around Halloween and even though her birthday wasn’t until Jan, she insisted on a peacock party and I simply couldn’t resist. I liked the idea of having a unique theme that was posh enough for my fancy 5 year old, but also fun and sassy enough to match her bubbly personality. I took her ideas, searched Pinterest and planned a Posh Peacock style afternoon tea for her royal highness and her friends.
Guest were invited to help celebrate Princess Aubrey’s 5th birthday with beautiful invitations from Whimsical Printables. I added a peacock feather, ribbon and jewels to each invitation for an extra special touch and loved how they turned out.
Once guest arrived they were shown to their seats and settled in for an elegant afternoon.
Guest could order tasty treats from the menu, like the Tasty Tea Sandwiches, Charming Chocolate Mousse and Posh Peacock Punch. I kept the food simple, but added extra special touches like the chocolate A’s on the cheesecake bites and the dainty little forks with turkey roll-ups.
Everyone received a goody bag with supplies to decorate their own masquerade masks and then they showed them off in the Peacock Parade. My daughter loves playing games and suggested we play Pin the Feather on the Peacock, it was lots of fun and the kids waited patiently in line for their chance to make the peacock fancy.
My sweet princess really wanted a cake for her birthday, but she also saw a picture of cupcakes I had pinned on Pinterest and pleaded to have both. Thankfully, my mom agreed to make both and did a beautiful job. The cake was one of my favorite things about this party, it was simple, elegant and delicious! And for a sweet ending to a fun party, everyone went home with their very own fancy peacock cookie from Sugarlily Cookie Company.
A perfect Peacock Party for my sweet princess, Happy Birthday Aubrey!
