Rapunzel Tangled Birthday Party

rapunzel tangled party ideas
My daughter's birthday party was a few weeks ago. Her birthday seemed to sneak up on us which had me scrambling. I started the planning on a Tuesday for the party 4 days later. She wanted a Tangled Party and I didn't want to disappoint! Party planning wasn't difficult, just time consuming. I got most of the ideas for the party from this website.

First I created the invitation and emailed it out. Email me if you would like to get your own personalized invitation.

We printed and laminated these bookmarks. Dori cut them ALL out, including enough for everyone in her class at school. We had the party guests string yarn through for Rapunzel hair, but Dori did the hair for her class bookmarks.

We also made luggage tags for each party guest.

The cake was a combination of a Rapunzel Tangled Tower and Pascal (chameleon) Cupcakes. Here are some of the supplies.

My hubby made a base out of a block of wood with a dowel stuck in it. I took an 8" round cake and pushed it down the dowel for the base and covered it with green frosting for the grass. Then I stacked Pecan Rolls back to back and topped them with 2 cupcakes.

Then I decorated the tower with green icing vines and topped it with a waffle cone which had been iced with purple frosting. Rapunzel's hair flowed out and around the cake. It survived the car ride on my lap to the party location (mall).

The cake was displayed at the party surrounded by the Pascal Cupcakes.

Party activities included drawing Eugene's nose on his wanted poster. The boys got a kick out of being really silly with this.

We also made Pascal Party Blowers. Supplies for this were purchase at Dollar Tree. Only $2 total for 8 blowers.

Here was the table where the kids made the blowers & put the hair on their bookmarks.

Here is the Birthday girl and her Tower Cake & Pascal Cupcakes! I love how the sun was streaming in the windows and made it look like her crown was sparkling.

As you can see the party was a success! My daughter felt special and had a great time.

Here are the Pascal cupcakes I took into school to celebrate her birthday a few days later. She passed out bookmarks to all her classmates and read a Tangled book to the entire class too.

We teach our children to be mindful of others, especially those in need. So we asked the party guests to bring mittens/gloves & hats to donate to local children in need. Here is a pic of my daughter after she decorated the Mitten Tree with her party donations.

  12. Just curious, how did you transport the tower from your house? I am nervous about this for my daughter's upcoming party!

    Great job, by the way.

  13. Lauren,

    I just held in on my lap. The dowel holding the tower in place was glued to the wood board, so I just had to hold the board steady.

  14. Your cake is incredible! I have been trying to figure out how to make Rapunzel's tower for my daughter's 4th birthday next month. Thanks for posting this!

  15. It looks like you did not get adhesive backed foam to make the party blowers. How did you adhere them together?

    1. I cut & hot glued the Pascal shape ahead of time. Then the kids put on facial features with Sharpies and slipped the blower into the opening. No need to glue in the blower.

  18. You gave your daughter a beautiful party and your are so creative. I have 4 children, 7 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren so I've given and been to a lot of children's parties and I commend you for giving your child the gift of learning how to share with the less fortunate.
