This last year my four-year-old REALLY wanted a Rapunzel party.  I really tried to convince her she didn't, but reasoning with a four year old about why mommy doesn't like character parties did not go over great.  So I managed to convince her that a Fairy Tale Party in the "Enchanted Forest" with Tangled things like cake and games would be way more fun.  She of course got to dress as her favorite "character" Rapunzel and I got away from a total character party.

Kids dressed up and joined up in the Enchanted Forest.   I used "iconic" items from fairy tales like red roses, pumpkins and apples for decor. I used branches and moss accents to add to the woodland feel and hung white tulle from the trees to give the space an enchanted feel.

My sister made some amazing cookies  - Eat Me cookies from Alice in Wonderland and magic wand cookies.

For the cakes I made Rapunzel Tower Cupcakes that I found the idea for here.  I kept the rest of the food simple - peanut butter and jelly Royal Crown sandwiches, Cinderella Pumpkin pudding, Pixie Dust popcorn,  and a Hansel and Gretel Candy Bar.  Tune in next Monday for Part 2 of the party - Fairy Tale Activities.
