I went to Pinterest to look for invitation inspiration and found this. Actually, my first option for the invitation was a printout with Sleeping Beauty on it. But I thought this might give the other mommies idea to dress their kids in Disney Princess costumes. See, I didn't want to buy Miya the Sleeping Beauty costume because it was more than 1k and I didn't want to buy something she will only use one-time. Di ba nga I make her Halloween costumes so I refuse to buy this for her hahaha! Well, actually it's really not practica.l E ayoko naman naka-Disney Princess costume mga classmate nya tapos yung birthday girl naka-ordinary dress di ba? So I told hubby I'll just change the design of the invitation and go with that one instead and do it myself. Actually the first option was because I was lazy na sana to DIY. Gusto ko ipaprint na lang hahaha. Thankfully, I was able to find this link with a template of the Sleeping Beauty dress which I used. I sourced National Bookstore for the papers and went to Carolina's to buy the tulle.

I mentioned earlier that we didn't plan to buy Miya a Sleeping Beauty costume right? But two weeks before Miya's party, her Ninang Joy told me she will give Miya Kyla's old flower girl gown. All this without knowing that I'm preparing for Miya's Sleeping Beauty party. I thought that's perfect because it was pink and blue! My worry was it might be too big for her, but it turned out perfect. It was a bit too long on the hem but our little princess was more than happy to lift her gown during the party.

|Make a wish, Princess Miya!|
|I love how small children have simple joys!|
|So yeah it's hard to take a photo of 16 kids and make them look at the camera at the same time but I love this photo hehe|
|My brother was also with us but he was the one taking the photos. Thank you, brother!|

The party was just a one-hour "event" but it the preparation were all worth it because of how happy Miya was.
