Have courage and be kind… and party with lots of glitter, of course! Maybe the last part isn’t from the new Cinderella movie, but I’m so glad that Shannon Powell of Painting Paris Pink took it to heart! Her Magical Forest Cinderella Birthday Party is a sparkly fairytale of golden butterflies, blue satin ribbons and glittery glass slippers.

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:
- Glitter fairy wands with blue satin bows in custom painted mason jars from Always the Occasion
- DIY glittered glass slipper cake topper + whimsical blue and gold fondant butterfly cupcake toppers
- Blue tutu birthday girl dress, framed “ELLA” party banner and confetti filled balloons
- Gold framed Cinderella quote signs + paper white pumpkin carriage decorations from 2clvr Designs

Using glass serving pieces I filled the table with blue sixlets candy, gold wrapped Rolos & shimmering blue gumballs for pops of color.
