Sophie’s Rapunzel Party

This year, soon after seeing the new Disney Tangled movie, Sophie knew she wanted to celebrate her 5th birthday party with a Rapunzel party.  
We did just that a few weeks ago and I wanted to share some fun photos from our Tangled day.

Sophie 5 tower cake

I made this “tower” the night before her party and Sophie loved it so much.
It’s just a styrofoam circle on the bottom with a wooden dowel stuck in the center.
I stacked premade pecan rolls on the dowel, added one in a cupcake wrapper and then topped it with a waffle cone that I covered in purple candy coating.   Then I slathered the tower with green icing to make it look like the vines.  I am no cake decorator, but I think turned out cute.


I placed it on my cake stand making it super tall and put some of Sophie’s new favorite dessert below, brownie covered Oreos.  Yum!

My sister Haley made these adorable cupcake toppers that I planned on sticking in the brownies.  They wouldn’t jab through the Oreo centers, so I randomly stuck them into the stryrofoam.

I am not a very good decorator.  I just make up random things as I go.
I decided to hang fives all over the house for a little splash of color.
Sophie really loved this and kept saying “cool fives Mom!”

Sophie 5 treats  

Some candy coated pretzel sticks and gummy bears.


We draped an eighteen foot blonde braid on our front door, that my husband so kindly help me braid.




  Kid cups for the lemonade station. 

Sophie 5 Flynn Rider

Remember in the movie how Rapunzel hits Flynn Rider in the head with a frying pan when he creeps up into her tower?  Well I saw a cute idea to have the kids play “Pin the Frying Pan on Flynn Rider.” 
I asked my husband to draw him on a big poster board and I must say, he did such a great job! 
I wish I was half as artistic as he is.

Hersh, my dad’s longtime friend, was so kind to volunteer to be the official poster  holder.

Sophie 5 Gracie

We covered all the kids eyes’ with my scarf and sent them on their way with their very own frying pan.


Everyone did such a great job!
(Check out all the kids! And they are all cousins! My girls are so lucky to have such a big, fun family!)


I found some Tangled printables online and made these fun banners to drape randomly around the house.


They have the cute sun emblem from the movie.  Sophie loved these so much that they stayed up for several weeks after the party!


Ella, my sister Haley’s sweet girl, was kind enough to bring her new Rapunzel tower to add to the decor!
It opens up into a table with two chairs.  So fun!


The present station.  I sewed purple circles in a line and just hung them on our mantle.
”Sew” easy.

We had a “build your own tower” station for the kids as well.
I bought skewers and put different fruit and cheese in frying pans to play off the movie again.

It was cute to see all the kids making their own “towers!”

Blow out the candles!


As her little guest left, she handed out some “Rapunzel Paint” to the girls and “Flynn Rider Paint” to the boys.

Such a fun day filled with family and friends.
Thank you to all who came to celebrate Sophie’s 5th birthday, Tangled style!

Love all your great ideas!

It's so great to see more and more people have parties at home for their kids- They remind me of the parties my mom had for my brothers and I when we were younger.

Looks like she had lots of fun!
