queen of hearts

On the weekend we dressed up for the beautiful Alexandra's birthday. It was so cold so I had to find something that was warm but still in theme. Queen of hearts was easy....a few pack of cards, some liquid eyeliner and lipstick and voila! Dressed to theme in under $10. Check out her delicious sweets.

We had fun dancing around, popping balloons with darts and singing Womack and Womack's "Teardrops". My sister was Pocahontas the birthday girl was the one and only Minnie Mouse and Kate was Snow White. There were various characters but I didn't manage to get many shots of the crowd. Too busy being silly I guess dancing around like lunatics. I love dress up parties. I should find all my old dress up pics to share with you guys. I love doing it on a budget as well. All you need is a little creativity! 

Snow White was a little cold. But she looked adorable.

Big Love,

Falala Mele xo

  10. Those cupcakes look super delicious! And don't you just love the costumes that are so easy and cheap to come up with? One of my favorite costumes I have ever done was a Jane of the Jungle costume I came up with using a leopard print dress I already had, accessorizing with a fake vine from on top of our kitchen cabinets, and just spending like $5 on a few hair flowers from a costume store.

  11. Great party ! Your costume and the cakes are beautiful !

  12. oh my word, I LOVE this whole idea! It's fantabulous! From the face art to the cards to the CUPCAKES!
