Make your little one and their friends feel like real princesses, by throwing the most elegant and tasteful princess themed birthday party ever! Sparkles and all!
Nothing could be more fun than a princess party with sparkles, tulle skirts and, of course, who could forget the tiara!
Pinks, purples, and silver!
Recommended age group & number of guests:
Great for 4 to 7-year-olds, but it can be adapted for other ages. Around 6 to 8 kids is a good number unless you have loads of space.
Set the tone for the party with a spectacular Princess Gift Box invitation. Fill a pink square gift box with a tiara swathed in pink tulle and place the scrolled invitation on top. You can buy a costume tiara at the local discount store.
Design your invitations using a cursive font and print out on pink paper. Stick a silver star, gemstone or fabric swatch at the top in the middle of the invitation to add some extra sparkle.
- Create a grand pink carpet entrance using 3-4 metres of pink fabric leading into the party. Make sure that you secure the ends of the fabric so it doesn’t blow away and place a doormat at the front of the carpet so that guests can wipe their feet.
- Decorate the table with pink tulle fabric and a sprinkling of silver stars down the middle. Silver napkins and cutlery can be used on the table. Use teacups and plastic wine glasses for the guests to drink hot chocolate and apple juice. A cupcake holder and a variety of large platters will give the table a regal feel.
- Use silver tinsel and Christmas baubles to decorate the main room. This can be very cost-effective especially if you buy the decorations out of season.
- Pink and silver balloons will transform the main party room and can also be used for the letterbox and each side of the grand entrance.
- Set the table for each guest with a name place tag written in silver cursive font. Silver Christmas bon-bons can also be used to decorate the table.
