This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Disney Channel and Latina Bloggers Connect.
My baby girl turned three the other day, and although we already had her birthday party (joint party with Scarlett here), we always still celebrate the actual day. Disney was awesome enough, as usual, to send us some party supplies just in time for her birthday.
Here’s a video of us unboxing the Party Kit! The girls were so excited when they received the box in the mail. They have been anticipating Princess Elena since they first heard about her a few months ago.
Princess Elena of Avalor.
Let me tell you why she’s special. She’s the newest Disney princess but she’s also the first Latina Disney Princess. 🙂 Awesome!
See some snippets of the new Disney series below.
“Join Princess Elena as she swings into action and takes her rightful place as Crown Princess in the kingdom of Avalor this summer on Disney Channel! Step into an enchanted fairytale realm inspired by diverse Latin cultures and folklore where every story is bursting with music, magic and mystery. With the help of her younger sister, Princess Isabel, her grandparents, Francisco and Luisa, and her friends by her side, Princess Elena will learn to boldly lead with bravery, courage and compassion.”
Elena was the name of my grandmother, so obviously I already love her name. The kids cannot get enough of the catchy Latin inspired music in the show. The girls immediately start dancing and singing along as soon as she begins playing her guitar. And yes, she plays the guitar, how awesome is that??
A musical princess. YES! We LOVE her!
We have family members who are musical, so my girls already have a strong desire to play musical instruments. They think Elena is really really cool so far. She’s a strong-willed princess who is protective of her family and wants to do everything on her own. She is an independent, passionate young girl. All the things I wish for my girls to be.
We had the cake baked by a friend. She had the royal blue jewels and the cake topper was actually a headband we had already. It was the same headband her sister wore for their last birthday party which you can see here >> Royal Tea Party. The crown headband was originally purchased from Etsy.
I’ve been asked about the party decor a few times since this post was published. The decor was actually sent to us from Disney to promote the premier of Elena of Avalor on the Disney Channel, so I can’t say exactly where this decor can be purchased. I haven’t seen much party decor yet out in the stores, probably because she is so new but I anticipate with her popularity that there will be a bunch of Princess Elena things popping up everywhere.
I did find some cute Cupcake Toppers HERE.
