Grab Your Tiara: It’s Princess Party Time
When planning a party, you must pick a theme first! The rest of the details will be centered around this theme, from the balloons and cake to favors and decorations. Also, you can make sure that any vendors you hire can adapt to that theme. This leads to princess parties. You can have a generic princess party with a costumed princess, or you can get more detailed and theme the party after a particular princess.
Plan Well in Advance
Get your daughter’s opinion on what she wants for the party. This will help you know what to book in terms of the specific theme, entertainment, and how to decorate. Afterall, the whole point of the party is to make your little princess has a fantastic and memorable birthday!
The theme is resonated well before the party even begins! Starting with the invitations the future party-goers will know what to expect. Center your invitations around the theme. For example, if you’re having a Snow White themed party, get creative and have your invitations read, "join us at the dwarfs cottage..." The rest of the planning all revolves around your theme as well.
Decorate the Castle!
Other items you need to consider in the planning process are the cake, party favors, decorations, and entertainment. You can get a 3D cake that is the shape of a princess, most cake decorators can make one of these. For the more budget conscious, a simple design on a sheet cake is also effective. Make sure that the cake plates and napkins go along with the theme as well!
At a princess party, one of the most popular party favors is a tiara for all the little ladies! Other simple favors for the mom on a budget are plastic rings or princess wands. The decorations - balloons, streamers, confetti, centerpieces - should also coordinate with the colors and theme of the party. You can find these favors and decorations at any party store. Some stores may not have your specific theme if you’re planning the party around a certain princess. If this is the case, check some online resources.
Entertainment Fit for a Princess
One of the most important aspects of your themed party is entertainment! What is better at a princess party than a real live princess! Costumed character companies offer costumed princesses; they can pose for pictures, interact with the party goers, and assist with other aspects of the party. Face painters and balloon artists can usually adapt and design images and balloons based on your theme. Make sure to contact a local vendor well in advance to make sure someone is available. There are also some companies who’s business is princess parties. They will provide the costumed character, face painters, balloon artists, and sometimes even favors, etc.
If the weather and location permit it, get an inflatable bounce house in the shape of a castle or hire a pony party company that offers princess carriage rides. If you can find a farm that usually hosts pony parties who also do pony carriages, it will generally be cheaper than hiring a horse drawn carriage company. Themed bounce houses like the aforementioned castle inflatable or a unicorn shaped bounce house are great ways to keep the kids entertained. It will also help use up any excess energy.
Having a princess party will be a hit with both your daughter and all of her friends! No matter which form of entertainment you choose or how you decorate, it will be a memorable event.
