The time has come for your
little princess to celebrate her birthday and she has decided
that this is the year for her royal ball; an enchanting
afternoon to celebrate with all of her friends. Now what?
Relax, take a deep breath and follow our guide to decorate for
the Perfect Princess Party.
Whether you a month or
even just a week to plan, we will make this birthday the
easiest and best.
First you need to decide what is
doable and what you can do without. If you have a budget,
stick to the basics. You do not need to spend a lot of money
to have a magical day.
Of course decorations are
a must! If you are on a budget, the dollar store is your
friend. You are certain to find streamers, table covers and
balloons there. Here you can save some money by purchasing
basic colors instead of Princess themed streamers and
balloons. Buy a mix of pink, purple, white or yellow. These
are the basic colors for princesses.
First, start by
making a thrown for the princess. If she is younger in age, a
child’s chair will work great. My daughter had a Cinderella
plush chair that made a great thrown. If you do not have
something similar, take a basic chair and cover with tulle
fabric. If it is an adult chair, try adding a step stool in
front, to make it easier for her to get on and off. Place
chair against a blank wall if possible
tulle, curtains or streamers, decorate the wall directly
behind the thrown. Arrange on the wall as you would arrange
drapes on a window. Instead of the window being the focal
point, the thrown will be instead. Becoming increasingly
more popular are Scene Setter
Packs. A palace or castle from afar
themed scene setter pack would fit a princess party
What thrown would be complete with a carpet
that leads up to it? I used large red construction paper and
taped it together to make a red walkway carpet. I already had
it on hand and it added so much flair to the thrown area. The
girls loved walking on the “red carpet".
princess party can be just as exciting as the inside, with
doorway decoration. If you are crafty and have patience try
this project. Start by deciding which doorway you would like
to decorate. It can be the doorframe to the house or to the
thrown area. Measure the width of the doorframe, so that you
know how wide to make your castle entrance. Using cardboard or
heavy paper cut the top half and shape to represent a castle
making castle towers. Leave the bottom half straight so that
it aligns parallel to the floor. Try to make it a good height,
so that the adults won’t bump their heads coming it and out.
After decorating with construction paper or paint, hang from
the top of the doorway. If you have the time or would like to
make it more elaborate, you can also add the sides of the
castle and a lowered drawbridge. These decorations can be made
in advance and setup the night before.
If adding a
castle entrance is too much work, try adding streamers and
Decorating the tables and chairs can
be just as easy or elaborate depending on your budget, space
and time. If you want to have a table just for the princess
and her court, design her table with a Princess themed, pink
or purple table cover and all other tables should have white
table covers. Centerpieces can be a single red rose in a vase
to honor Belle of Beauty and the Beast or glass slippers if
Cinderella is her favorite. You can find faux roses and vases
in inexpensive party stores or in dollar discount stores,
whereas glass slippers may have to be an online purchase
from auction sites or online party stores.
be draped with tulle or fabric and embellished with a bow in
the back. If you have a table just for the princess and her
court, you can just decorate the chairs for them.
Decorate the cake table with Princess themed napkins,
plates and party favors. Be all the little girls
have tiaras or princess hats and the little boys have
crowns or swords. You can also have the party goers dress
in royal attire to add flair to such a special occasion.
Dress up the walls with princess pictures and posters
can add that special touch. A great idea is to print princess
pictures, place in frames and hang on a wall to represent all
the princesses that came before yours. You can purchase
inexpensive frames in discount stores, dollar stores and
superstores. Find nice princess pictures by searching online.
Last but not least, don’t be afraid to be bold and
help make your Princess feel special on her birthday, after
all she is royalty.
