What does an 8 year old girl dream of wearing to a tea party? A Cinderella Wedding Dress Costume of course!
My daughter wanted a tea party, and I committed to it. I’ll admit that I don’t have a lot of experience throwing tea parties for children. Do kids drink real tea? Does it matter? Is there such a thing as pink tea for girls?
Thank you Costume Express for supplying the Disney Cinderella Movie Wedding Dress Deluxe Costume for Kids.
I invited some my daughter’s friends, sourced a tea set, devised a respectable menu – fruity flavored sweet tea and cookies- and somehow I thought I would be all set. (I straight-up apologize to my daughter’s friend’s parents for the liquid sugar served with solid sugar. It seemed to be an unavoidable tea party hazard. Of course, I could have served some fruit now that I think about it…).
I shared my plans with my 8-year-old, Abigail, who nodded, then asked me, “What am I going to wear?”
“A dress,” I answered without giving it much thought.
Abigail’s expression let me know I needed to think again. And then the rebuking voice inside my head said, “Duh Dad, this diversion demands some dress-up!” (Does your harsh inner critic punish you with alliteration too?). Oh dear!
“Not to worry, Abigail, you will look fabulous!”
At this point I was despondent, near despair, and ready to eradicate the letter “D” from the alphabet. And then, Costume Express came to the rescue! They have an incredible selection of dress costumes. I am grateful to them – and I give my word that all opinions in this review are my own.
A big box arrived at the door clearly marked Costume Express. Abigail spread the word to her friends that the tea party would be fashion forward. True to its description, the Costume Express Disney Cinderella Movie Wedding Dress Deluxe is a “dazzling princess” costume. The colorful floral embellishments float atop the elegant pearl white dress.
Abigail felt quite regal at the party, sipping from her tea cup and enjoying that which must not be named (or served) for the rest of the week. To my great relief the tea party was a success with the help of Costume Express. For those who might question whether this lovely white dress is actually associated with Cinderella, please feel free to mention that Abigail “wore it best”. I’ll admit – I’m biased. But seriously, I should point out that this dress is an officially licensed Disney costume.
I appreciate that Costume Express offers affordable costumes. They do not skimp on quality. They also carry many wonderful accessories including Sparkle Ballerina Shoes, a Glitter Makeup Kit, and a Tiara and Ring set. With a successful tea party behind me and Halloween on the near horizon, I know exactly where to shop.
