A Cinderella Wishes Shower

This week we continue with our Disney inspired children's party series with a Cinderella themed baby shower, or wishes party. One of the most famous songs from the Cinderella film, "A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes," would make a wonderful party theme to celebrate a new baby.

Give the mother-to-be a warm shower full of dreams and wishes for her sweet baby girl with this elegant wishes party in a Cinderella color scheme of silver, cream and soft blue.
