My sweet baby girl is turning FOUR this weekend! Since Rowan's birthday party had to be cancelled last year we decided to make this year's party all about her and her closest little friends, instead of having a larger gathering that included her friends' older and younger siblings. I thought about what Rowan loves to do with her friends: play dress-up, play with her dolls, and do crafts. From that it was an easy leap to a 'princess' (or fancy) tea party that included dolls!

A few things you might like to know before you arrive:

We don't take our girls to see movies at the theatre very often, but we made an exception for Disney's "Big Hero 6" when it was on the big screen! Now an Academy Award-winning movie (for Best Animated Feature Film), and featuring Best Animated Short Film "Feast", this Blu-rayTM Combo Pack is sure to be a hit in your home too.
