Try a Disney Theme Princess Party for Your Daughter's Birthday with these Party Ideas!
May 29, 2012
You’ve thought your little girl was a princess since the day she was born. As she’s grown older, she’s probably dreamed of being a princess as well! And, like most little girls, she probably just a tiny bit obsessed with the Disney princesses like Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Ariel, and Jasmine. So when it’s time for her next birthday, your little princess is probably demanding a princess party of her own! Make your princess’s dreams come true and throw her a fabulous princess party, complete with all the crowns, glitter, glitz, and glamour her little heart could want! Windy City Novelties has you covered with all the Disney princess party supplies you will need!
Renting a proper castle is probably out of your party budget so you’ll have to transform your home into her dream castle. Start by rolling out a pink carpet runner for the guests to walk down as they arrive. Every guest will feel like a princess receiving the royal treatment! As each girl arrives, place a princess tiara headband or a rose ribbon headband on her head. What little girl can resist her own crown? Make sure the guest of honor has her own special tiara that sets her apart from the other guests, like the pink, jeweled princess tiara.
Once the girls have walked the pink carpet and received the crowns, you’ll want to lead them into the grand hall, which you can decorate with Disney Princess danglers, pink streamers, and enough pink and white balloons to cover the ceiling! You can also set up a princess carriage photo prop and have each girl pose with it. If you have a photo printer, take their pictures, print them off, and as a fun craft project, have the girls decorate picture frames they can put the picture in as a party favor.
Covering your table with a Disney Princess plastic table cover adds a festive touch and will make clean up a snap once the party is done. Just leave all your Princess paper plates and Princess cups on the table, clear off anything you want to keep, gather up the tablecloth’s edges, and throw it all in the trash! Clean up is easy as 1-2-3! Let’s just hope no one smeared pink icing on your carpet, because that will take a little more elbow grease to clean off.
The menu for your princess party can be pretty basic. A pink princess cake is a must, and of course there must be ice cream. For a unique twist on the traditional cake, have smaller individual cakes made for each guest. They will be delighted with their own cake and each one can be unique. Or, get the kids in on the process and let them decorate their own cupcakes! Bake the cupcakes beforehand and set out frosting, in white and pink of course, and then let the girls go to town decorating their cupcakes with sprinkles, colored sugar, candies, crumpled cookies, and any other treats you can think of! It may be messy, but the girls will love it!
It is probably a good idea to avoid serving soda at your princess party, as you don’t need the guests hyped up on caffeine when they are already going to be on a sugar high from the cake and ice cream! Try serving pink lemonade, water flavored with lemons or with ice cubes made out of juice, or sparkling cider. For a fun twist, serve the drinks in teacups, which you can usually find cheap at resale stores and garage sales. As long as it’s not your grandmother’s heirloom china, you can let the girls take their cups home at the end of the party.
To keep your little princess and her ladies-in-waiting occupied during the party, have some fun activities planned. Below are some suggestions.
Play musical slippers. Just like musical chairs, but instead of racing for chairs, the girls will be racing for glass slippers you’ve placed in the middle of the circle. If your own glass slipper selection isn’t big enough, you could always use some of our glass slipper place card holders instead! Whoever doesn’t have a slipper in their hand at the end of the game loses.
Makeovers. No little princess can resist a good makeover! Purchase some eye shadows, lip glosses, and nail polishes from the local dollar or discount store. Remember, the more glitter and glitz the better! Let the girls go to town making each other over. Be sure to have the camera ready, as this will be an awesome photo opportunity!
Stuff a Princess Castle piñata with treats like candy, bead bracelets, and temporary tattoos, then let the girls take a whack at it! No one can resist swinging at a piñata, so be prepared for lots of giggling and grunting as these princesses get a little rowdy trying to break into their princess piñata!
As the party draws to a close and it’s time to send the princess back to their own kingdom, be ready with some awesome party favors. Stuff your Disney treat bags with treats like a beaded princess jewel ring, pink glow clip on earrings, and their very own pink princess diary. Add a lip gloss and nail polish to each bag and you’ll be sending them home with an awesome favor bag, as well as incredible memories of the day they were treated like a princess!
