Throw a princess party for that special little girl in your life
November 09, 2010
It goes without saying that every little girl loves to play dress-up. From the moment they can walk and talk, our precious daughters tend to raid their mothers' closets, try on their lipstick and parade around the house in their high-heeled shoes. The desire to feel regal and elegant seems to be innate for some girls, and you can't help but love them for it.
If there's a special little one in your life who loves nothing more than to put on a big poofy skirt and tiara, why not throw them a princess party? The experience is bound to be enjoyed by all and the event will create memories that she'll carry with her through adulthood.
First, make sure you buy invitations. If your daughter adores princess movies (and, let's be honest, what little girl doesn't?), try to find ones that have the standard Disney characters on them. Announcements that feature images of Ariel from The Little Mermaid, Belle from Beauty and the Beast, as well as Jasmine from Aladdin are sure to have your guest of honor counting the minutes until her big day is here.
Next, pick out decorations. While these can be subtle or over-the-top, there's one all-important color that must be used - pink! This shade signifies all things girly, and guests attending your party will be starry-eyed with all the rosy décor that surrounds them.
Also, try to find banners, balloons and streamers that feature images of Disney characters. If your daughter loves one film above the rest, stick with that. Play the music from the movie in the background and watch all the kids go crazy.
Finally, every good party needs supplies, and your shindig should be no different. In fact, finding the right princess party extras is vital, as children are extremely attentive to details.
First, make sure you purchase a number of paper cups, plates and napkins that are decorated with your chosen theme. Snow White and Cinderella make for fantastic images, and everyone at the party will delight when they see them underneath their piece of birthday cake.
If you really want to take things to another level, consider purchasing a princess castle piñata. This party extra will leave your special someone squealing with delight as she and her friends slam into it and gorge themselves on their precious candy treasures.
Having a little girl is nothing short of wonderful. That's why every time they turn a year older, we want to make sure their birthday is one to remember. A Disney princess party can do just that. So start planning now for her shindig in order to create memories she'll be telling her own children about some day in the future.
