Whether your little princess is four or 14, and you're looking for a kids birthday party theme, consider throwing her a darling princess birthday party she will always remember.
Start off glitzy and go from there. The more sparkles, the better. Bring in lots of pink and faux jewels. Start with pink fabric. Get a few yards of shiny pink fabric that you can drape over the table. Finish it off with loads of sheer tulle, also from the fabric store, to mimic a ballerina’s tutu.
Tiaras are a must. Pick them up at a party shop so that each guest gets to wear one. Encourage guests via invitation to come dressed in their finest princess attire. Hand out magic wands. You can either make them yourself with wooden dowels and glitter, or buy them in bulk online.
Decorate the room as a princess’s palace. Bring in silk pillows for the girls to sit on on the floor. Drape curtains in luxurious fabrics like silk (you can pick up a faux silk curtain panel or two at the discount store). Create a room that’s filled with mystery and drama. Cover your coffee table with fabric and place a sparkly bowl on it filled with treats. The more glitter, the better.
Now, for the glass slipper. You can actually find glass slippers online in a plastic form to give out as party favors. But for the guest of honor, get her a pair of shoes in her size and then glitter them up yourself. Buy a cheap pair of low heels and use a paint brush to paint on white school glue. Sprinkle gold or silver glitter over the tops and let them dry.
Every fairy princess loves to have a pretty dress. Make or buy the fanciest dress you can. Often, you can find a Snow White or Cinderella costume in a store or online that’s perfect. Be sure to give her jewels to wear on her neck. Get her a fancy faux pearl wedding jewelry that she can wrap around her neck several times or rhinestones that sparkle.
When it comes time for the party, have a make up session. Paint nails, do hair, let the girls play with makeup. Be sure to ask the moms ahead of time if they mind. And you can ask the girls to wash their faces before pickup time. Provide wipes and make up remover.
Play princess movies on the DVD and let them run for the whole party in the background. Dance, sing, let the girls practice their best ballerina twirls. Read the story of Cinderella or let them style Barbie dolls’ hair during the party.
The more glamour and glitz, the better. You can find all the supplies you need at the dollar store from the makeup (which you can throw out after) to the wands and glitter. Go all out for the little princess in your life.
Take lots of photos and if you have a printer, let the girls decorate photo frames at the party with glitter and embellishments. Let them take home photos of themselves or a group photo as a memento. It will be a magical time for all, especially the birthday girl.
Creating a princess birthday party isn’t hard at all. And it will have a huge impact on the little guest princesses.
