Decorations for a Princess Themed Birthday Party

How do you turn your home into a royal castle? You don’t need to go all out, but a red carpet will have a dramatic effect on the way the party looks. Use a pink tablecloth with some extra streamers and confetti, and make an archway over your front door using balloons.

If you want to get creative, you could make a throne that the princess can sit in while the cake is being cut. Take some gold and silver aluminium foil and use it to line a normal dining chair.

Snacks and Food for a Princess Party

For a princess party birthday party, nothing works better for snacks than cookies cut out into the shapes of crowns and tiaras. Decorate them with pink icing along with other colours to look like jewels.

How about Magic Wands (breadsticks dipped in hundreds and thousands).  If you want something more healthy, you can always serve some vegetables or carrot sticks along with a pink dip. Some ranch dressing with a few drops of red food colouring will give you a nice pink tint.

Party Game Ideas for a Princess Party

Since everybody’s already dressed up like princesses, they’re going to want to play like princesses too. There are plenty of medieval and castle-themed games that will fit any budget, from kiss the frog to pass the poison apple. You can also take regular games and give them a fun twist to fit the theme. Instead of playing pin the tail on the donkey, why not pin the wings on the dragon?

Birthday Cake Ideas for a Princess Party

Every princess needs a royal cake for her birthday party, so get creative with the icing and decorations. For the baking aficionados out there, a castle cake presents a fun challenge. If you aren’t quite so pastry inclined, a regular cake with pink and white frosting will do the trick.

Of course, if you want to limit the cleanup, you can always just go for some cupcakes to give everybody their own individual share. You can easily find some cheap princess-themed cake decorations at a budget store to give it the right touch.

Party Favours for a Princess Party

Finish up the afternoon with a small bag or basket of party favors for everybody. This just lets all your guests know that you’re thankful they could make it, and it gives the kids a reason to keep thinking about the party long after they leave. That way, the next year everybody will look forward to coming to the party! Ideas such as plastic tiara’s (actually they would be good to hand out at the beginning of the party – and the guests can keep them) or wands are easy to pick up at $2 shops.
