Princess Party Invitations

Roll out the royal details in style. We recommend sending your regal invitations about a month before the big day. To add a magical touch, hand-deliver them to each guest’s house. They’ll feel like they’re being invited to a magical ball.

Want to go the DIY route? Here’s a budget-friendly idea straight from my mom: Write out the necessary party information onto pretty pastel paper, roll the paper and tie it all together with gold ribbon. Voila! You’ve got a beautiful scroll invitation fit for royalty.

Princess Party Decorations

It’s time to transform your home into a magical kingdom. Luckily, it’s not that hard to add a touch of magic. Blow up some balloons, roll out a pastel pink tablecloth, hang some streamers and you’re all set. If you want to turn things up a notch, create a magical space for the birthday princess to receive gifts or pose for pictures, like a custom fairytale backdrop. Add balloons around an armchair or pile some festive pillows for a cushy seat.

Here are a few more pieces of princess party decor that should be on your list. Spoiler alert: You’re going to want them all in your shopping cart.

  • Toss some confetti in the air! This princess confetti pack will add a simple touch of elegance to any princess party.
  • Capture the fun with little ones in this giant carriage photo booth. Everyone will be lining up to get their photo taken.
  • Add a touch of flair with this pretty pinwheel decoration. It’s the perfect addition to any blank space you’re trying to decorate.

Princess Party Activities

Keep the royal highnesses entertained with a schedule of events that will make the party festive from start to finish. But don’t stress if activities don’t go quite as planned. As long as they’re having fun, your little one is bound to feel extra special.

Food Fun

Start the party with this fun foodie craft. To make edible princess wands, prepare and wash strawberries, blueberries and watermelon. Then, cut watermelon slices into star shapes and place the fresh fruit on a wooden skewer. Up for more crafts? Have a decorate-your-own-tiara station filled with pre-cut paper crowns, jewels, glitter and markers.

Dress Up

It’s not a true princess party without dress-up time. Ask the attendees to bring their favorite makeup, accessories and gowns for a princess fashion show (and have some extras on hand, too). Colorful tutus like these from Kids Kingdom Boutique are a must. Give each princess a turn to strut their stuff in true regal fashion—with stick-on earrings and plastic heels, of course.

These are some amazing ideas for a princess themed birthday party.
