Princess Party Decorting Ideas
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
First, start by making a throne 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
Using more 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.
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.
Chairs can 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.
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
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
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.
