My baby turned 4, and we celebrated with a Pretty Purple Party! She loves purple, and it was so fun to plan a party around just one color! We have lots of purple for the girls, so I pulled out their purple kitchen and items from the girls fancy room to add to the fun! Enter our world of purple and at the end of this post, I’ll share where I found some of the elements. Pretty Purple Party tablepurple party wig  cake pops

  34. Purple theme party is beautiful and looks elegant. It can be also a great theme for a debut party, I like the decorations as well the hanging purple lanterns. It’s a beautiful theme and gives me idea on what to do my clients who love purple.

  35. Melanie McKinney says:

    Well my soon to be 4 year daughter loves purple and as we were pinning purple parties she saw your daughters photo with the purple hair and she is now in love. She tells me she wants purple hair and that dress everyday. So where did you get that dress? I would love to find it for her. I have the shoes and hair but not the dress! I would be winning to buy it from you! Thanks a million!

  36. Ana says:
