Princess Party Invitations

Monday, June 8th, 2009

She lives in a castle in a far away land. She wears a pretty dress while carrying a wand in her hand. She’s nice, she’s pretty and she’s looking for a frog to turn into her prince…she’s a princess!

Celebrate her magical day with a princess party in her honor! Princess themed parties are one of the most popular kids’ birthday party themes around. Because every girl is a princess and deserves to be treated like royalty on her special day! Create your child’s very own princess party by incorporating the princess theme into your invitations, decorations, games, activities, cake, snacks, gift bag favors and costumes. Below are some great ideas that will help you create an unforgettable princess party for your little one…

Invitations: Sound the trumpets for this princess’s invitation! has a great selection of princess party invitations that are suited for royalty! The princess invitations range from castle themes, princess girls, magic wands, crowns and princess place settings. Our princess invitations are offered in a different variety including flat invitations, layered invitations, die-cut attachment invitations, stand-up invitations and die-cut shaped invitations. When planning the wording on your invitation be sure to include a princess poem or princess jargon like “her royal highness”, “happily ever after” or “come join us in a land far away…”.

Decorations and Costumes: When decorating for a princess party, make sure your décor is full of pinks and purples. Include jewels for some added sparkle. Decorate your entranceway with streamers, balloons, a banner and flower petals along the floor. You can even create your own castle, or have the party guests create a castle out of boxes. Have each guest come dressed as a princess or their favorite Disney princess or have an array of costumes for your guests to dress up in upon arrival. Make sure the birthday princess has her very own birthday crown or even a princess sash so that everyone knows this is her special day.

Games & Activities: If you’re into arts and crafts, have each guest create their own magic wand out of streamers, glitter, sequins and jewels. Or, have all the princesses pose for a group picture that you can print during the party and have the guests decorate a princess frame to take home with the photo. For games you can play “pin the tiara on the princess”, hot potato but with a “poison apple” or dress-up princess relay.

Cake & Snacks: When making your princess cake many craft stores have cake molds in the shape of a castle, magic wand or princess hat. Decorate your cake with pink and purple frostings and even add edible glitter! For snacks you can serve up party mix, Hershey’s Kisses (that might just turn into a frog or a prince), cookies, scones, crumpets, tea and fun fruit juices.

Gift Bags: Send each guest home with a goodie-bag that you can find at a craft store or dollar store. Fill each bag with candy, stickers, a prince frog or a candy necklace.

…After this party she’ll live happily ever after!
