Princess Birthday Party Decorating 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
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.
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
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
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".
Entering the 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
If adding a castle entrance is too much work,
try adding streamers and balloons instead.
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.
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
Last but not least, don’t be afraid to be bold and
help make your Princess feel special on her birthday, after all she
