Cinderella’s Castle, located in the heart of Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, gives little girls of all ages a chance to step foot into a real life fairy tale. Glamour and grandeur radiates from every corner of the magical structure, giving it the appearance that dreams do come true!
Give your daughter a royal reception by holding princess birthday party in her honor. Pull out the pearls and dust off that evening gown because this will be one event both you and your child will never forget.
An Enchanted Engagement
Being a member of the Royal Court means that you know how to plan a proper party. Select stationery suited to the occasion to make it even more magical for partygoers. Pretty invitations set the tone for this truly memorable princess party. On the princess birthday invitations, you could write the following message:
“Your royal highness, Princess (Your Child’s Name), extends to you this invitation in celebration of her esteemed (Age) birthday. Don a crown and be prepared to live like royals do from (Time That the Party Starts) to (Time That the Party Ends).”
Since the theme of this party centers on serving tea, decorations and party favors can be elegant yet simple. Set up two to three small card tables with the appropriate number of chairs. Linen tablecloths and fresh flowers set in vases give a special touch to each table. Pastel colored balloons and streamers can be hung to give each room that special party feel.
A few days in advance, purchase a dozen, plain white tea cups with matching saucers. Visit a craft store and select several non-toxic permanent paint pens in a variety of different colors. Each child will be given the opportunity to decorate his/her cups and saucers before refreshments are served.
Once they are rinsed out, wrap each piece of tableware in newspaper and put them in plastic bags to send home as party favors. Parents will love their child’s hand painted gift.
Hand out paper crowns or plastic tiaras to each child as they enter your home and call each girl and boy by their appropriate title of either Princess or Prince.
Tea Time Treats
Be inspired by royal afternoon tea when you create food for the princess party. Flavored tea in a variety of flavors should be offered to each guest. Bite-sized finger sandwiches consisting of peanut butter and jelly or pimento and cheese are a big hit among children.
A square cake can be cut in a way to resemble a princess’ crown. Pastel colors can be used to frost the cake and various pieces of candy can be used as “jewels” to give the dessert a royal air.
No matter what age she will be, your daughter will appreciate the magic that went into planning this perfect event. From the princess birthday invitations to the crown jewel cake, your little princess can truly be royalty on her special day.
