A Princess Playdate

20130523-155743.jpgI don’t remember being as into Disney Princesses as my girls and their friends are.  Every play date it’s a battle of who gets to wear what princess costume and there are never duplicates of the same princess.  The other week, my daughters friend invited us over for a “Princess Lunch and Playdate”.  All the girls invited brought their own princess dress up costume.  I always like bringing snacks when other people have us over and I love coordinating the snacks if there is a theme.  Because it was a last-minute playdate, I had to come up with something quickly.  I decided on heart cheese wands for each princess.  They turned out really cute.  All you need is a block of cheese, a cookie cutter (if you don’t have a heart, a star would be cute too), lollipop sticks and ribbon.  Tie the ribbon around the lollipop sticks.  Next, slice the cheese to desired thickness, then cut out shapes. Place shape at top of the stick.  If you cut the cheese too thin it will crack.  I used sharp cheddar cheese but will use a mild or american cheese next time because some of the kids didn’t like the taste.  However, Sleeping Beauty didn’t mind it. :)

For the next Princess Playdate, here are a few ideas I found on Pinterest that are simple, yet fun: (click images to go to original sites):

Pretty Pink Drink from On To Baby. Not sure what they use in their drink but I would use pink lemonade, raspberries, and a lemon:
