I had originally bought the standard party store decorations but with a week to go before the party, I shifted gears and went completely homemade for everything. I made the Hubs take most of the decorations back and used the money for my craft supplies. I found a few pins for bunting and other decorations. I cut out the sun logo that's seen throughout Rapunzel's kingdom and got to work. I painted it on the bunting. I made paper lanterns. I braided 25 feet of yarn to make a Rapunzel braid to decorate our entry way with. Each girl got a Rapunzel braid on a ponytail holder to wear for the party. I even made the Magic Golden Flower that gives Rapunzel's hair its magic powers. I might have gone a little overboard for a 4 year old's party but I had so much fun doing it. I have set a high standard for myself for future parties though.
Without further adieu....Emmy's decorations!!!!

I'm so happy with how it turned out. I don't know if I'd change a thing. It wasn't overtly Tangled but if you saw the movie, you appreciated the touches I did. I'm so thrilled with the cupcakes I made that they're getting their own post!!! Probably the most exciting thing that I've done so far in my baking career!!!!
