If your little girl wants to have a princess-themed birthday party, here’s a few ideas to get you started.
1. Make a Crown – When your little princess’s guests first arrive have a table set up for them to make a crown to wear during the party. You can buy inexpensive foam crowns at craft stores like Michael’s. For younger children, put each child’s name on a crown ahead of time with puffy paint. Provide the children with stickers and stick-on plastic jewels so they can make their crown unique. This is a great way to keep kids busy while you’re waiting for everyone to arrive. Makes a great party favor too!
2. Make a Wand - Buy large craft sticks and ribbons or crepe paper. Wind strips of ribbon or crepe paper around one end of the craft stick in varying lengths and use glue or pipe cleaners to secure. When you’re done, all the little princesses will have their own ribbon wand. Turn on some princess music and let them dance around swirling their new ribbon wands. Makes a great party favor too!
3. Pumpkin Coach – If your child has a fall birthday, you can buy small pumpkins for each guest and have them make their own pumpkin coach like Cinderella. Just set out paints, glitter and decorations and let the children use their imagination to turn a plain pumpkin into a magical princess coach.
1. Princess Shapes – Buy princess-themed cookie cutters and cut sandwiches, fruit, cookies and cheese slices into shapes like crowns, wands and slippers. It’s a great way to make sure little guests will eat up!
2. Make Pretzel Wands – Before the party, dip one end of a pretzel rod into melted chocolate and roll into colored sprinkles. Let stand on wax paper until chocolate hardens. Makes a great princess-themed snack.
3. Princess Cake – When my daughter wanted a princess cake, I decided I could make one myself. I simply made a cake in a bundt pan, as well as two in a round cake pan. When the cakes had cooled, I stacked the two round cakes on the bottom, with frosting in between and then put the bundt cake on the top. I bought an inexpensive princess Barbie, wrapped her legs in plastic wrap and inserted her into the middle of the cake up to her waist so it looked like the cake was her princess gown. Then I frosted the cake in pink and added star and flower sprinkles in a pattern to make it look like a princess gown. This cake was easy to make, came together quickly, and got lots of compliments from the guests.
