Before we start, a word of advice. If you are fairly new to entertaining and would like some help on how to plan a party in more general terms before focusing on the theme, I’d recommend that you check out the Hosting section for additional help.
Set the mood for your princess party from the start by selecting invitations that match your theme. Is it a generic princess party or a Disney Princess party? Is your party based on one princess in particular?
Being clear about the theme helps heighten your guests’ anticipation for the party and lets them know what to expect and how to dress (if it’s a costume party).
Fortunately, you can find all kinds of princess-themed invitations on Amazon and at countless party supply stores.
“If you keep believing, the dream that you wish will come true.”
Hiring a professional princess to attend your party is the single greatest thing you can do to enhance the event, if you can afford it. They usually spend a couple of hours entertaining the kids, singing songs and playing games. They’ll also socialize with the kids, take photos, and answer all kinds of inevitable questions only kids will think of, like “How’s Prince Charming?” or “Where’s Olaf?” In short, they bring an unmatched level of magic to the party, and free much of your time while they’re engaged with the guests.
Personally, I strongly recommend Princess Paige (pictured) if you’re in Ontario, Canada. She attended my daughter’s birthday party as Anna from Frozen and the kids absolutely loved her. She performs as various other characters as well. For me, the best part is that she’s also an incredible singer — her voice mesmerized all those in attendance, including adult musicians!
Aside from a special guest, decor is the other main element in setting the mood for your princess party. Fortunately, you can find most of what you’ll need on Amazon, which makes life so much easier.
But what to get? Here are some ideas you might want to consider in order to set the stage for your princess party:
- Pink and white balloons (or light blue/aqua for Frozen parties)
- Tiaras and gold crowns
- Magic wands
- Glass slippers
- Treasure chests
- Pink or red carpet runner
- Princess posters
- Door curtains
- Princess carriage pinata
- Hanging paper chandelier
- Pop-up castle table toppers
- Snowflakes and snowmen (for Frozen parties)
- Kiss The Frog party game
- Plastic swords, shields, and axes
Keep in mind that simple, hearty food is definitely best for a princess party as the menu should be reflective of the Middle Ages or Renaissance periods. Consider serving things like meat, bread, fruit, and cheese. Roasted turkey legs are also really well-received at any medieval-themed occasion, along with large potato wedges or roasted half-potatoes.
For dessert, princess cupcakes, Jello-O castles, and gold chocolate coins and are always popular! I also like to place white chocolate or caramel chips inside fresh raspberries for a fun and tasty treat
While you’ll want to offer your guests a variety of drinks at any party, I like to keep as many of my offerings as possible pink for this type of theme, so I make sure I offer fruit punch, along with milk and water of course.
Tea is also very dainty and a propos – many people like to make their event a princess tea party, which can be a great idea and lots of fun. On the alcoholic side, consider red wine if you have adult guests.
Once you have your drink menu figured out, you need to go the extra step and think about your glassware.
What better way to serve your drinks than in a princess cup or a medieval goblet?
