Strawberry Princess Birthday Dress & Invite

Those of you who have been around here for a while know that my all time favorite thing in the world is to dress up my nieces and husband and take silly pictures of them. It takes a lot of work since I make their outfits, and then the photo, and editing so it’s mostly a tradition saved for birthdays and Halloween. But we all love it. The musicmaker was resistant at first but he has fun.

L’s birthday is this month and she wanted a strawberry princess party. When I asked her a few weeks ago what she thought about Uncle being her unicorn and holding a strawberry in his mouth she threw up her hands and yelled “forget it” it was quite hysterical. None the less I asked again the next week and she was fine with the idea. Almost 3 year olds right?

T was awesome. She told L that she looked so pretty, fluffed her sleeves and spread her skirt for her. What a great big sister. I felt like I had a sneak peek at what L’s wedding day will be like some day. When I told my friend Heidi this she said that she’d pay to see Daniel in a unicorn costume at L’s wedding. Bwahahaha.

I’m pretty proud of my princess dress. I made it kind of big because I feel like these girls grow a mile a minute and I’m hoping she can get some wear out of it. I put elastic in the back to add extra room for growth. I think the unicorn hat is goofy but does the deed. And even better they both were made totally from fabrics I had around that had no purpose yet.

 Any ways these are some of my favorite pictures from the invite ‘photo shoot’.


  1. I literally can not stop laughing!! Those are HILARIOUS!! Well the hubby is hilarious, girls are adorable! I told my husband that he is going to be the pony ride for our daughter’s Bday & showed him the pics. He wasn’t as willing as your husband, haha! LOVED the whole blog! Thanks for the laugh!

  2. I had so much fun and then last night when my husband was gone I changed his facebook pic to the one I used in the invite haha. He wasn’t totally willing at first but I think now he knows it’ll be fun and worth being silly.

  3. The princess outfit is super-cute, and the Unicorn hat is absolutely hilarious! Brilliant!
