That time Bells/I was sent a Princess Party Pack…

ParentingVideo / Jun 19, 2017 /

In the lead up to Bells first birthday party, it struck me that I had no idea how kids parties work… I mean, I’m the first of my friends to have a baby and things have moved on somewhat since I was a little girl. Although, I should add that I’m not THAT old, promise.

Therefore, when I was contacted by the lovely folks from Disney Hallmark at Tesco offering to send us a Disney Princess Pack to celebrate their collaboration, I honestly nearly kissed the ground. Talk about good timing.


A few days later, the pack arrived and I’m not quite sure who was more excited, Bells or I. It contained everything that any princess could possibly need for a party; from plates and napkins right through to tiaras, wands, glitter pens, crafts and of course the all important cards that we were to go on to use as invitations. Perfectamondo. You can watch our unboxing here:

The pack was themed around Beauty & The Beast following their recent launch…. it’s literally my favourite children’s story of all time and so to say that I struggled to contain my excitement is an understatement.

As you’ll know if you’ve subscribed to my YouTube channel, I’m really keen to capture our special moments for Bells to look back on when she’s older. I know that she’s too small to remember much for now but with it being her first birthday, I wanted a keepsake that she’ll be able to read when she’s older. Therefore I used one of the princess cards to write to her. I’m going to keep it as part of a time capsule and hopefully present it back to her when she’s 18.


In honesty, Bells is probably a bit too young to have fully appreciated the Kit, but her older cousin simply couldn’t contain her excitement. A week later and she’s still insisting on being called a princess and quite frankly, I don’t blame her.


The cards are truly magical and would be treasured by any little girl. I’m half tempted to frame them for her room! You can check out the full range here.


Also worth mentioning is that if your little one is interested in winning themselves and a friend a dress of their dreams (who wouldn’t want that?!?), Tesco are running a competition now that might be right up your street. It’s super easy to enter, just purchase any Disney card from a participating Tesco store, pick up a leaflet, create your design on the leaflet and send your entry to princessdress@hallmark.com. The closing date for entries is 21st May 2017, so don’t hang around!

Now, where did I leave my wand?

NB: This post was a collaboration and the pack had been supplied to us courtesy of Hallmark Disney at Tesco. I’m super grateful for the pack and would never write about something unless I truly liked it. Everything you read is authentic.
