The hair. The Mother. The frog. Err, chameleon. What's not to love about Rapunzel? For Sami's 4th birthday we got all Tangled up in fun! Join us, won't you?
Many thanks to Grealish Greetings for the tower SVG and inspiration for Sami's invitation. Maybe I should also thank you for my carpal tunnel. *wink* Those tiny braids nearly did me in.
The tower cake was made of a 9" round, 2 layer cake, topped with donuts, a muffin and ice cream cone. I got the inspiration for this cake from Dreaming of Stitches.

i *do* like ducklingsMe and My Insanity. And if you look close, you can see a pair of ceramic unicorns (*clink*). I purchased these from Etsy seller Nonconformity.
"Pretzel Ducklings" (inspiration: Stop Lookin' Get Cookin'), cheese & crackers, "PB & J Ducklings", "Braided Pizza Sandwiches" (inspiration: Squidoo), "Braided Ham & Cheese Sandwiches", strawberries, blueberries and grapes, root beer. I wanted to make hazelnut soup since it's Rapunzel's favorite but I knew a household of 4, 5 and 6 year olds so I put butterscotch pudding in little cups and sprinkled it with hazelnuts.
If you'd like to print my signs for yourselves, you can find them here. Frying Pans. Dream. My Birthday. Best Day.
stuff to do
Photo ops! Rapunzel's tower and Flynn Rider's wanted poster, with noses, since they can't ever get it right. Both photo ops were handmade.
Pacal party blowers (instructions: Family.com). Watercolors with personalized liners. Hats for Princesses or Ruffians. The princess hats were inspired by Little Things Creations. The Ruffian hats are party hats from Hallmark's How to Train Your Dragon collection.
Got a couple extra minutes? I'd love for you to be one of my "100 people surveyed"!
