Princess Party Ideas or How to throw a Princess Party



Planning a Princess Birthday Party? Here are some tips for throwing a princess party. What little girl doesn't dream of being a princess. I guess that's why princess parties are so popular. So if your "little highness" is begging for a princess party, here are some ideas for you.

All parties begin with the invitation; it sets the tone for the party. Here is a great Princess Party invitation: An exquisite tiara. This tiara invitation will make any girl feel "royal." And her guests will know they are invited to a royal gala. To order this invitation go to our website janeymacpress.com





The funnest thing about a princess party is making everything elegant and royal feeling. Start with the food. Serve punch in a crystal punch bowl if possible. I like to collect old snack sets from the 50's and 60's. (you can find them at antique and thrift stores) They are glass plates with their own punch cup. Watch the look on the girls' faces as you serve them with these dishes. They really do feel royal!! I like to set food out on silver platters and then use tiered dishes to add height. This is always more attractive. It's easy to add a few lit votive candles to make everything sparkle. I do that at all my parties. It doesn't matter if you serve cupcakes or a cake. If you do cupcakes, put them on a pedestal cake plate to make them more elegant looking. Add a few helium balloons for color or fresh flowers to the food area.


Princess Party Game Ideas
Next are the princess party games. This is very important!! You want games that keep their attention and that are themed to the party. Of course, games are often age oriented but here are a few game ideas for your princess party. Princess Make-Over: this is a fun way to begin. On a table each "princess" has her own little mirror and brush. You can have a plastic ring and necklace for each girl and then a small little lip gloss and maybe nail stickers. Whatever you have there, make sure it is enough that they do a complete princess make over. When they are done, let them collect all the things provided for them, put it in their "royal bag" and this serves as their party favor to take home. Another fun game is to buy a big bag of plastic rings at a party supply store and have them hidden before the guests arrive (indoors or out, depending on weather). Give each girl a loot bag and tell them, something terrible has happened, the princess has lost all of her royal rings and they have to go and find them. The girls get to keep the rings they find and you can have a prize for the one who finds the most rings. Another fun game is to play, Pass the Poison Apple. Have the girls sit in a circle, tell them not to eat the poison apple. Play music as the girls quickly pass the apple around the circle. When the music stops, whoever has the apple is out. Go until there is only one person left. Another fun idea is Posture Practice. Have all the girls line up and put a book on their head. Then have a relay race to see who can go the farthest with the book on their head. This will get lots of laughs and squeals out of the girls. Good luck and have lots of fun planning your princess party. Take lots of picture. We like to make a DVD from the pictures of the party, we give a copy to all the guest when we sent out the thank you cards. Good luck with your princess party. We hope these princess party tips have been helpful.
