It’s no surprise that most little girls enjoy the royal treatment when it comes to their big day. When it comes to your little princess, you will do anything to make her birthday dreams come true.
From princess dresses to princess cakes and princess activities, most little girls will get so excited over a princess-themed birthday party. If this sounds like something you and your little one will enjoy, here are some ideas to help you get started on planning the perfect fairytale party fit for a true princess.
Princess Party Cake and Treats
One of the most trending party elements is the cake. You’ll want to make sure that it’s a show stopper when guests walk by the cake table.
With so many talented bakers on Instagram, finding one in your area shouldn’t be a problem. Be sure to contact your cake artist at least 2 months in advance to make sure they have an opening and that they are able to bring your vision to life.
Bring images from cakes that you like from their own Instagram page or Pinterest, like this gorgeous castle cake. Keep in mind that the price does go up with the number of servings, tiers, and details.
Don’t forget about other sweet treats for your princess party. This recipe for Princess Raspberry Jello Cupcakes with White Chocolate Raspberry Jello Buttercream Frosting would be perfect for a Disney Princess Party – especially if it was a Princess Aurora party from Sleeping Beauty. These are a little tough to make, but if you’re up for the challenge, Beauty and the Beast cupcakes are adorable.
Belle Donuts are delicious and adorable and the white chocolate princess party dip is so festive with the edible crown sprinkles. Every princess will also fall in love the fairy dust popcorn from the Clumsy Crafter.
Princess Party Attire
When creating your invites, be sure to let your guests know that this will be a dress-up party and to come in their finest royal dresses. It would also be really helpful to include a few options where parents can go to purchase a dress for this occasion.
Cute dresses for girls at Presley Couture is a great place to shop if you’re looking for Disney-inspired dresses at affordable prices. Because everyone is working with different budgets, listing a few options with different price points would be considerate to your guests.
Princess Party Favors
Putting together a bag or box of party favors for your royal guests should be fun and in line with your theme. Beauty items such as crowns, wands, little mirrors that are adorned with rhinestones, play makeup, nail polish, or small lip glosses all make for great favors. You can also include stickers or mini princess coloring books.
Don’t forget to add the sweets. You can customize cookies to have a princess design, your little one’s name, or the guest’s names so that they know who’s bag or box is whos.
You can also add other sweets like small bags of candy, lollipops, cotton candy, and popcorn. You can even customize the bag that the sweets come in through online companies such as Zazzle.
Princess Party Decorations
One of the trendiest focal points for parties in today’s day is the cake and goodies table. You’ll want to make sure that you have a spectacular balloon garland, hanging chandelier, a beautiful cake surrounded by the most gorgeous goodies such as cupcakes, donuts, and any other sweets your little one loves.
Not only will this table serve as the center of attention it can also be used as the perfect backdrop for photos. Make things easy on your self by purchasing a whole kit from Mom O Party (photo below), complete with all the decorations you need for a princess theme birthday party.
You’ll also need to set up a table where your guests can enjoy their meal and cake. For this, you’ll need to dress it up with a pretty tablecloth, florals, and princess-themed centerpieces.
A princess has got to eat! Try some of these adorable ideas for the main meal, like simple turkey & cheese or peanut butter & jelly, but cut into princess crowns with a crown cookie cutter or a healthy edition with these fruit kabob wands (below).
Frankly, anything that you can make into a crown shape is on the table for a princess theme party, even these mini pizzas from Brownie Bites Blog.
Princess Party Activities
Lastly, every party needs some fun activities to enjoy together. Depending on what your little one and her friends enjoy doing, you can tailor some activities to their interests.
Anything from a tea party, a paint party, decorating tiaras and wands, bedazzling pieces of clothing or bracelets, making necklaces with a DIY kit, cookie or cupcake decorating, and even a spa day can all be done in your home by setting up a station for each one of your guests.
Coloring pages are also something else that little girls love so print out a few free printable princess coloring sheets or word searches here and provide them with crayons.
Toilet paper crown making activities are fun for little girls of all ages.
A long table where you can have a place for each one to enjoy the activity will be a lot easier to clean up. Don’t be afraid to ask other moms to help you if your group is bigger than you can handle.
This Save the Princesses is a cute game for summer by freezing little princess figurines in a block of ice and rescuing them.
Princess “Minute to Win it” Games are cute to add a little competition to the party.Here are some ideas based on a few of the princesses:
- Rapunzel’s Let Your Hair Down: Each player gets a chopstick (or stick) wrapped with yellow yarn. When you say go, players have to try to be the quickest to unwrap the yarn as fast as they can.
- Frozen’s Blindfold Build A Snowman: Each player gets a zipped bag with three marshmallows, three chocolate chips, three pretzel sticks, two googly eyes, and a carrot sliver. Blindfold each of the girls and race to see who can open the bag and use the items in the bag to build a snowman (that actually looks like a snowman) first.
- Belle’s Last Rose Petal: Give each girl 2-3 red or pink balloons. When you say go, have the girls hit up their balloons and see who can keep them in the air the longest.
Now that you’ve got some ideas to get your creative juices flowing, start planning ahead of time so that you can take your time executing each step of the planning process. Enjoy the day with your little princesses.
