Disney Villains and Princesses oh my!

We celebrated Josie's birthday yesterday.  We had a GREAT day for it!  Sunny, almost 90 degrees and NO CHANCE OF RAIN!  Since our visit to Walt Disney World last October, Josie has been wanting and wanting a Disney Villains-themed party.  Her favorite villain is Malificent and she requested [last October] a Malificent cake.  Okay....?  Needless to say, I had some time to think about design. 

Getting back to the party, I added the "princess" bit for her because I think most her her 5-year old-ish friends would have more to do with princesses than with the villains.  We encouraged all of her friends to dress up as their favorite Disney villain or princess and also come with their swim suits.  Because it was so warm, we made it into a water party!

Josie's Grandma Marcia was able to secure this wonderful Snow White cut-out which we had all of her guests pose with.  What a beautiful addition to the party!  

I still can't believe I was able to find Villain-themed plates and napkins, but was so happy I did.  (These were actually for Halloween parties!!)

We had all of Josie's guests find their goodie bags right away after arriving.  We had them hidden throughout the yard.  The girls got foam tiaras with adhesive jewels to decorate, lots of fun jewelry, princess tattoos and silver wands.  The boys got knight masks and knight shields to decorate, knight tattoos and a foam sword. 

Here are all of Josie's guests.  A few Cinderellas, Snow Whites, a Rapunzel and even a Darth Vader in there!

After the photo-op, we had the kids get their suits on and that's when the fun began!  Sprinkler time for everyone (while also watering the veggie garden)!

We played Cruella's Dalmation [water balloon] toss game.

And Hades Hot Potato.

We finished up the water games with water limbo!

Then it was time for cake.  Like I said, Josie wanted a Malificient cake (the evil fairy from Sleeping Beauty).  It was so hard to make such an evil cake for my 5-year old daughter, but this was really what she wanted.  I kept the color scheme very Malificent and added the dragon (made out of gum paste & fondant) and included some little pink flowers around the cake, per the story. 

The top tier is a yellow cake and the bottom tier is a chocolate cake.  Both are filled with green buttercream frosting.
 I think she liked it!

 If cake didn't provide enough sugar, we had the kids take down this pinata. 

 And here they are enjoying the deliciousness of the candy, after their cake sugar high. 

....and then we quickly sent all of the kids home.  :)

Happy Birthday, Josephine!  I hope you had a wonderful day!  We sure did!
