Our niece, Keira, is currently obsessed with Disney princesses. She picked one of Disney’s newest princesses, Elena of Avalor, as the theme of her 4th birthday. This week, we transport you to Avalor for Princess Keira’s Elena themed birthday party at Diamond Gymnastics. Gymnastics studios are the perfect setting for winter birthdays. The staff handles everything from setup to entertainment to cleanup. Of course, we were able to make the party more magical with some Twinspiration.
Elena of Avalor is Disney’s first Latina princess. She is brave, confident and adventurous. Our fiesta embraced a vibrant color palette of red, pink, yellow and purple in honor of Princess Elena. We scattered Elena themed balloon bouquets on the buffet table and decorated the children’s dining area with Elena tablecloths, tableware and napkins.
Birthday parties at children’s gymnastics studios typically run 90 minutes with an hour for entertainment and 30 minutes for light bites and cupcakes. The birthday girl and her friends had exclusive access to this 7,000 square feet facility, which featured top of the line gymnastics training equipment. Keira and her friends started their afternoon of fun with some light stretching.
Next the festivities kicked off with the birthday girl swinging in the overhead swing.
Just look how much fun she had flying around.
The staff played a number of games, sang songs, and worked with children on the various gymnastics equipment. The kids loved climbing the cargo net, hopping through hula hoops, jumping on the trampoline and crawling or walking through the obstacle courses.
Keira felt so special crawling through the red, green, yellow and blue giant parachute.
Since our party started at 4:00, we served some light apps and lots of cupcakes. We served, strawberries, blueberries, veggies, chips and hummus. Archana made the Elena cupcakes and chocolate lollipops. We displayed the lollipops on a styrofoam cone.
Keira loved her Princess Elena cupcakes. Archana made them with red cupcake liners, red buttercream frosting, a 1M tip and a Princess Elena cupcake topper. The hardest and most time consuming part was cutting out the Elena’s. If you are short on time, buy them pre-cut or use a Cricut.
Each child left with a bag of goldfish, as well as Elena chocolate lollipop, pencil and puzzles.
Thanks to the fabulous staff at Diamond Gymnastics for a wonderful 4th birthday. We all had a blast.
