Most little girls go through a princess phase, and when your little one's birthday rolls around, throw a princess-themed bash to capitalize on her interest. She'll love dressing up in her favorite princess outfit and getting together with her best pals to get treated like royalty for a few hours. Use these tips to make her princess party one she'll remember and be talking about for years!
Fit for a Princess
Choose your little girl's favorite Disney princess to act as the theme for the party. The princess you choose can dictate the colors, decorations, games, and activities you select for the party. Even if she isn't into particular princesses just yet or can't pick only one favorite, this is a great way to narrow down the options for the party and bring a cohesive force to a fairly broad theme.
Getting Your Supplies
Pick out a party package that includes invitations, plates, decorations, and party favors to match your theme. Sites like BirthdayExpress.com have tons of packages specific to the princess you have chosen so you don't even have to leave your house to get your party supplies. If you want a more general princess theme, you can opt for a party package that just has princess crowns or tiaras on it rather than pictures of Disney princesses.
Decorate your home to look like a fairy tale scene. A little bit of tulle, some colored streamers, and balloons can go a long way in transforming your space. Focus your attention on the room where the little princesses will be spending most of their time, transforming it so they can hardly even recognize it as part of your home. If you have the time and energy, you can even paint a castle on large cardboard boxes to make the girls feel like they're walking into a palace when they arrive at the birthday party.
Have each of the guests make a princess tiara or beaded jewelry right when they arrive. This will help all of the girls to feel like beautiful princesses for the whole party. Plus, they can take home their crafts as party favors and keep playing along with the princess theme when they go back home.
Bring the Magic Home
Hire a real life princess to come to the party for the entertainment. These princesses have realistic costumes and stay in character the whole time they are there so the girls will really feel like they're getting so see a princess. The princess will also take care of the entertainment for much of the party so you don't have to come up with many games or activities to keep the little princesses occupied.
Make delicious and delicate treats for the little princesses to eat. They don't have to be super gourmet or complicated, but things like cream cheese and strawberry jelly sandwiches and cupcakes with lots of pink frosting are perfect for the little princesses to eat. For drinks, put together a simple pink punch with fruit punch, lemon-lime soda, and some scoops of pink sherbet floating on top.
Your little girl's birthday is the perfect time to pamper her and make her feel like a real princess for the day. You can start in the morning by bringing her a fancy breakfast in bed and getting her dressed in her princess outfit so she gets excited hours before guests arrive. And of course, don't forget to take plenty of pictures to capture every moment of the party so you can remember her day as a princess.[divider]
