The Best Princess Party EVER!

Last week the girls and I were invited to a Princess Party by Feld Entertainment, the folks who run the Disney Live and Disney on Ice Shows. As experts in everything princess, the girls are tough customers when it comes to princess parties. This event was wonderful and more than met expectations.

The girls dressed up as their favourite characters. Juliet was dressed as Sleeping Beauty and Ainsley dressed as the evil witch. They were greeted at the door and were given their Princess name tags and their Princess Tiaras (a big hit).

The evening started off with munchies to energize the kids for the evening's activities. While we ate, we got to watch some clips from Disney's upcoming Disney Live show. The girls were mesmorized as they watched their favourite princess act out and sing their favourite songs. I have to say that I was getting excited about taking them to the show.

After dinner, the girls went off to get their princess hair done. I was amazed that Juliet, who usually does not sit still, sat perfectly for at least five minutes while her hair was styled and she got a pink hair extension.

After getting their hair done, we went off to decorate our pumpkins. This was a great activity for the girls and kept them busy for quite some time. This would be a perfect activity for a birthday party, especially if it falls near Hallowe'en.

After pumpking decorating, we headed of to get some Tattoos. This was also a huge hit!

The absolute highlight of the evening was the arrival of Cinderella and Snow White. The girls were so excited to see two of their favourite princesses and were even more excited that they got to have their pictures taken with them.

A big thank you to Feld Entertainment for hosting this fun filled event. Not only did the girls and I have a great time together, but it gave me some great ideas for our next Princess party!

We cannot wait to go and see the Disney Live show which runs from January 13 - 15 2012. Tickets are available at Tickets available at or 1-855-985-5000.

Who is your child's favourite Disney character?

I'm Baaaackkk!!!

It's been two months since my last blog post. Sounds a bit like an AA confession. The Glow Baby blog has been sorely neglected due to a number of crazy happenings both as a business and as a family. The blog has taken a back seat to a busy life. But now that things are finally settling down (knock on wood), I am focusing once again on sharing my journey both as a business owner and as a mom.

Over the past two months, Glow Baby has grown and I have done amazing things that I never dreamed possible. I was the organizational expert in article about Back-To-School organization in both The Globe and Mail and The Toronto Star! I attended my first trade show in Kentucky and had many other smaller but just as exciting accomplishments keeping me very busy.

On the homefront, Ainsley started JK!!! I can't believe that my baby is in real school now. It is amazing how much she is learning and everyday when she comes home she's learned a new letter or song that I can't wait to hear about. Juliet is almost three and in the process of dropping her nap (which had directly affected my work time). She is getting bigger and more vocal everyday and when we had her first playdate a few weeks ago, I felt that little tinge in my chest that made me a bit sad that my youngest is no longer a baby. I feel truly blessed that I am here to experience these moments with my girls even though some areas of my worklife have suffered.

I look forward to once again sharing my stories, ideas and tips. We've had a busy few months but this means I have LOTS to share.

Thanks for staying with us and get ready for some fun!
