Each guest was mailed a movie ticket, complete with perforated bar code at the bottom. I ordered the tickets (similar to the ones shown below) through a designer on etsy. She customized the information and I printed them at home. Then I used a tracing wheel, from my sewing kit, to make the little 'holes' at the bottom.
I decorated our front door with a "Wanted: Flynn Rider" sign and a really, really long Rapunzel braid. I made the braid out of yellow yarn. I actually had to have my hubby help me braid it because it literally took three hands to keep it from getting tangled. No pun intended :)

Afton was very specific about wanting a 'little doll' on the cake. So I used Bakerella's tower cake for inspiration and then 'made it my own' with more icing and flowers. My tutorial for the cake can be found here.
I made bunting with the 'official' sun medallion from the movie. My tutorial for making bunting can be found here. To make it "Rapunzel" bunting- just use purple card stock and use this stencil to make the medallions from yellow card stock. They were a bit tedious to cut out, but I only did 9.
The table was decorated with goody bags, Rapunzel crowns and Pascal party blowers.

We set up our garage like a movie theater, but "Rapunzel-style" complete with purple chairs and lanterns.
|The lanterns were purchased from Party City.|
The girls snacked on popcorn and drank juices boxes while watching the movie. The chalk board wall was set-up so the girls could 'decorate the walls' like Rapunzel does in the movie.
We also had a princess bounce house set-up. So they alternated between sitting very still and jumping around like crazy! And since they were in the garage, I didn't worry about spills :)
It was a great party, fit for a Princess.
Happy Birthday Afton!
And what would a birthday party post be without... a few linky parties?!
