If you have a little girl, the chances are high that at some time soon you will be holding a Princess party.
The great thing about a Princess party is that there are literally so many things you can do. You can either leave it to be generic and simply have your daughter’s favorite color to decorate with, or you can tailor the party around a specific Disney Princess.
This is the type of party that all little girls will love. Here you will find easy to recreate Princess party ideas for decorations, food and activities to make your Princess party the most dreamy one yet.
Princess Party Decorations
Like all parties, the decorations that you choose will have a huge impact to the look and feel of the party.
I recommend choosing just 3 colors to use in your decoration and build your party decor around that. You don’t have to choose 3, but if you choose more than that you run into the danger of having a rainbow party!
The first thing I recommend is to create a party backdrop. This can be undertaken so easily using budget plastic tablecloths. You may not think so, but it will looks AMAZING and it’s something that anyone can put together regardless of your crafting skills.
Add some sparkle (with a tablecloth of glitter), some princess sparkle pom poms and you are already on your way to a beautiful party.
For some extra details add some glass slippers, beads, tiaras and Princess dolls around the party area. Use rolls of tulle or glitter and sparkles for some added glam.
What Should I Wear To A Princess Party?
Girls love to dress up. It’s not uncommon to see little girls walking around the mall dressed up in their fancy dresses, tiara’s and wands. Well a Princess party is the PERFECT time for them to dress up.
This is a chance for them to choose their favorite Princess dress, get their hair done and cover themselves in glitter. The more sparkle the better. It would be an adorable sight to see your little girl and all her friends dressed up in their favorite costumes. Tiaras galore.
Princess Party Food Ideas
One of the best things about kids parties is the gorgeous food. It is really easy to create some themed food with very little effort. Some of these food ideas will suit all Princess parties, whilst others are more specific to particular Disney Princess parties. It is however easy to make slight alterations to any of these ideas to fit your Princess party perfectly.
