For her 5th birthday, my youngest daughter asked for a princess party, and we are doing just that. I wanted to make her feel special and loved by planning a magical birthday celebration. Here are some of the princess party decor and ideas I found while planning:
You can find a wide range of princess-themed invitations on websites like Etsy or Amazon. You can also make your own on Canva and simply print them. Since her party is at a nature center, the them is more “princess in a magical forest.” I customized a Canva template to reflect that.
For a princess party, you can use balloons, streamers, and banners to create a regal atmosphere. You could also make a royal throne for the birthday girl by decorating a chair with tulle, ribbons, and flowers. Or, you could set up a photo booth area complete with props like tiaras, wands, and feather boas.
Themed food and drinks
Create an elegant spread that appeals to both kids and adults. Finger sandwiches, mini-quiches, and fruit trays are all classic party foods. Adding little touches like princess-themed cupcakes, chocolate-dipped strawberries, and pink lemonade will delight your little guests.
The party activities are what will make the celebration truly royal. Setting up a craft table with supplies for making princess crowns or wands is always a hit. You could also arrange a scavenger hunt with clues around the party area or hire a “princess” to attend the party and read stories.
I found these paper crowns that the kids can decorate with gems, which are included in the kit.
Princess party favors
Party favors always make guests feel special and appreciated. They don’t have to be extravagant, but simple and thoughtful favors like goodie bags with princess-themed trinkets can go a long way.
Besides the paper crowns, I found fidget pop-it toys, which kids love. I also picked up small magnifying glasses for the kids, since we will be at a nature preserve and they will be exploring the forest.
I used an Etsy SVG to make custom shirts for our family, which is a birthday tradition. The design features the Disney princesses and a castle. I used the same SVG to make a cake topper and cupcake toppers also come with the SVG package.
I also found a princess crown at Party City.
In conclusion, planning a princess party is all about getting creative and making the celebration special and memorable for your little princess. Incorporating these simple and easy-to-follow tips, your little one is sure to have a magical and unforgettable birthday celebration that they’ll treasure for years to come!
