Chick fil a Princess Night





A few weeks ago, our Chick-fil-a held a Princess Night. The girls and I met our friends Angela and her daughter, Grace. We had a great time. Of course, for Princess Night, you must dress like a princess. Even Amelia got in the act. I put our smallest dress-up dress on her and pinned it in the back to make it fit. She was very proud of her outfit and kept saying, "princess". I, on the other hand, did not dress like a princess, but I did wear a skirt, which the girls thought was very special since it's such a rare happening.

Princess Night was a pretty impressive shindig. First of all, all the kids got free kids meals. But that was just the beginning. The activities included limo rides!, decorating picture frames, getting nails painted and more. Plus the larger dining section of the restaurant looked like a wedding reception complete with white table clothes, chairs with bows and fresh flowers. Amazing, huh?

We had a great time at Princess Night, but unfortunately we didn't get to participate in many of the fun things that were available. We decided to eat first then play. While we were eating, the picture frames were getting used up, the film in the polaroid camera ran out, and the line for the limo became very long. But you know what, it was okay. My children and Grace were content dressing up, enjoying a meal with friends and playing together. They did get to have their nails painted, too, so all wasn't lost.

I am really glad that they had such a great time and that they were content with the things that they got to enjoy rather than focusing on the things they missed out on.

Here are some fun pics from our evening. (They were taken with my phone, so don't be too critical.)

By the way, Amelia felt that the throne was hers, so she tried to take it over after her turn. It was a singing throne, so it was pretty special.

  • We attended, too. I was thoroughly impressed with the caliber of the event! Last week, they did a Super Hero night for the boys. Obviously, neither your family or mine were allowed to attend, being as we have very non-male-gendered-offspring.

  • Great pics! We are of course huge chick fil-a fans and recently enjoyed our free chicken and coke from freechickenandcoke.com. I can't think of any other "fast food" place i get excited about going to.
