rapunzel birthday party1

My little girl turned four on Saturday. I can hardly believe she is 4 already. Some of you have been around here long enough to remember when she was born. I had to organize a Tangled Song Birthday party for her!

I know the move Tangled is so 2010 but Kayla is still way into it. So I again hit up Debbie from Wants & Wishes Design and used her Printable Rapunzel Tangled/Princess Collection party.

I am a huge fan of printable parties. It is so much cheaper and easier than trying to figure out decor items myself. Plus well designed printables make any party food look adorable!


Organizing a Tangled Song Birthday party

The Cake

After making all the sweets for Isaac’s 6th Lego Ninjago birthday party I got smart and spent $16 at Kroger for 12 cupcakes and a cake. I was so done with baking!

It was so worth every penny to me to not have the stress of decorating a cake.


The Jewels

One of my favorite details of the party is adding some ring pops to an old jewelry gift box. So cute!


Other accessories

Besides cake and icecream they had apples (Maximus’s munch) and Princess Pretzel Wands made with the Vintage Frame Cupcake Mold and Wilton Pink Candy Melts and Lavender.

I also used the rest of the candy melts to make the candied popcorn.


Of course course we can’t have a party at home without a paperbag pinata. Not only does it only cost a couple of bucks, by kids are so accustomed to them they’d be sorely disappointed to not have one.

I have a feeling I am going to be making these even when they are an adult. I used the leftover ruffles from my Ruffled Streamer Wreath.


The favors

Since the kids were plenty sugared up I sent them home with a little stretchy bracelet I had made for each of them. I used the bags from the Party by Amy Locurto line from American Crafts tied with a sheer ribbon and the thank you printable from the Wants and Wishes Collection.


The party princesses were very pleased.


The most famous song from the Disney movie “Tangled” is “I See the Light.” This beautiful and romantic song is performed by the main characters, Rapunzel and Flynn Rider (also known as Eugene Fitzherbert), as they share a lantern-lit boat ride and begin to realize their feelings for each other.

“I See the Light” is not only a memorable moment in the film but also a popular and well-loved song from the movie’s soundtrack. Alan Menken with lyrics by Glenn Slater and won the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2011.

The soundtrack was playing all day and the girls had the opportunity to sing along with the karaoke we bought in Amazon.

I printed out the lyrics for them (you can get them here) and they were singing away literally all the time (now I know it by heart).

Tangled Song Birthday Party

“I See The Light” Lyrics

All those days watching from the windows
All those years outside looking in
All that time never even knowing
Just how blind I’ve been
Now I’m here, blinking in the starlight
Now I’m here, suddenly I see
Standing here, it’s all so clear
I’m where I’m meant to be

And at last I see the light
And it’s like the fog has lifted
And at last I see the light
And it’s like the sky is new
And it’s warm and real and bright
And the world has somehow shifted
All at once everything looks different
Now that I see you

All those days chasing down a daydream
All those years living in a blur
All that time, never truly seeing
Things the way they were
Now she’s here, shining in the starlight
Now she’s here, suddenly I know
If she’s here, it’s crystal clear
I’m where I’m meant to go

And at last I see the light

And it’s like the fog has lifted

And at last I see the light

And it’s like the sky is new

And it’s warm and real and bright
And the world has somehow shifted
All at once, everything is different
Now that I see you

Now that I see you

“For the First Time in Forever” Lyrics

The window is open, so’s that door
I didn’t know they did that anymore
Who knew we owned eight thousand salad plates?
For years I’ve roamed these empty halls
Why have a ballroom with no balls?
Finally they’re opening up the gates

There’ll be actual real live people
It’ll be totally strange
But wow, am I so ready for this change?

‘Cause for the first time in forever
There’ll be music, there’ll be light
For the first time in forever
I’ll be dancing through the night

Don’t know if I’m elated or gassy
But I’m somewhere in that zone
‘Cause for the first time in forever
I won’t be alone

I can’t wait to meet everyone!
What if I meet the one?

Tonight imagine me gown and all
Fetchingly draped against the wall
The picture of sophisticated grace
Ooh! I suddenly see him standing there
A beautiful stranger, tall and fair
I wanna stuff some chocolate in my face

But then we laugh and talk all evening
Which is totally bizarre
Nothing like the life I’ve led so far

For the first time in forever
There’ll be magic, there’ll be fun
For the first time in forever
I could be noticed by someone

And I know it is totally crazy
To dream I’d find romance
But for the first time in forever
At least I’ve got a chance

Don’t let them in, don’t let them see
Be the good girl you always have to be
Conceal, don’t feel, put on a show
Make one wrong move and everyone will know

But it’s only for today
It’s only for today
It’s agony to wait x 2

Tell the guards to open up the gate
The gate

For the first time in forever
Don’t let them in, don’t let them see
I’m getting what I’m dreaming of
Be the good girl you always have to be
A chance to change my lonely world
A chance to find true love
Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know

I know it all ends tomorrow
So it has to be today
‘Cause for the first time in forever
For the first time in forever
Nothing’s in my way!
