Brave Party

This is my Merida.  Isn't she cute?  There was talk of a Rapunzel party this year, but then D decided that she HAD to have a Brave party for turning five years old!
 
 I loved going to see this movie with D.  Pixar really knows how to make a movie, right?  And since it was all about the mother/ daughter relationship it was special for the two of us to see it together.
  This was D's first party with friends- it was fun to throw a party for little girls!  Unfortunately my time management skills the day of the party where lacking, so I didn't get around to taking photos of everything.  Most of my inspiration came from Pinterest finds- check out my party board here for more ideas.  Most importantly D had a great time at her party!  Here's details-
Invites...

My second attempt at pinata making.  This time I made an old school paper-mache over balloon kind of pinata.  This is supposed to be a wisp from the movie, but D said it looked like a squid.  Either way it turned out a lot better than I was expecting.  It came apart just as the last party goer got a good whack at it so I'll count it as pinata success...
 

 
 I filled the pinata with Merida fruit snacks and set them out for the party, too...

I was going for a medieval/Scottish feel for the birthday banner...

 
This is another paper craft printable from Spoonful.com that I used for decoration...

Arrow cupcakes...
 

I didn't want to go all out with Scottish food that the kids wouldn't eat, so this was my only themed offering- prosciutto pinwheels to look like archery targets.  The rest of the food was very run of the mill party food...

Activities: decorate your own princess crown.  I found the template here...

More Brave printables...

Where did you find the arrows for the cupcakes?

Hey Shelley-
I actually made the arrow toppers for the cupcakes. I cut the end of the arrow out of colored card stock (just free hand since the shape is simple) and then taped the arrows to wooden skewers.

Did you make the invites yourself? My daughter wants Brave theme and I would love something like yours for hers!
Thanks, Steph
