Planning a party for a young girl can prove to be quite the task for any mother. Sometimes selecting a theme can be one of the biggest obstacles. For those mothers running low on creative juice, planning a princess themed birthday party for your little princess can be quite easy and affordable.
Invitations are one of the first tasks to be completed for any celebration. For a princess themed party, the invitations can be royally styled. Instead of just naming the invitee, add a surname to it. Depending on the gender, the surname could be Princess or Prince. Adding this to the mailing address on the envelope is also a nice touch. Designing cards with tiaras and princesses can be easily done through online programs or simply by hand. For the boy invitees, try to incorporate dragons, princes, crowns, and castles on their invitations.
One of the tricky parts of planning a princess birthday party is transforming the house into a kingdom. It is always a good idea to ask the birthday girl what she would like at her party. It is a great way to make her feel included in the planning process. As far as decorations, party stores are an excellent place to begin looking. After exhausting all stores, the internet is also a handy place to go for decorations. This should be done as early as possible to get the shipments in time. To add a realistic touch to the party, try renting a miniature pony or horse for part of the day. Not only would the birthday girl enjoy this addition to the party but guests could enjoy pony petting and short rides.
Party favors for a princess themed celebration are easy to put together. For the girls, present them with a tiara upon arrival to the party. As for the boys, crowns can be given in place of the tiara. These gifts can also be found at party stores and are quite inexpensive. Upon departure, little candy bags can be given out which are also inexpensive and easy to make.
As for the cake, consult with the celebrating princess about the design. Many grocery stores and cake shops can make cakes with princess, tiaras, castles, and ponies on them. Letting the party girl choose the cake is important to make sure she knows it is her special day. Often, cupcakes can be designed as well. Cupcakes are great because they are simple to serve and easy to clean up.
Games at the party can be quite fun with a princess theme. The little princes can dig for Captain Hook’s treasure in a sand box while the princesses can make their own jewelry to take home with them. A great game for both boys and girls at the party is to slay the dragon piñata.
This theme is perfect for everyone and sure to be a great time had by all. Also, with a princess themed party, little princesses everywhere can enjoy their special day as royalty.
