When it comes times for a birthday party, most little girls will request a princess theme. A princess themed party is a dream come true both for the birthday girl and the guests.
What makes this even better, is that this kind of party is very easy to put on. There are hundreds of various princess party decorations, favors, and tread ideas.
The best ages for a princess themed party are ages three through eight. These ages tend to be in love with the idea of being a princess.
Even though this type of party is fairly easy to put on, you will still want to make sure that you plan it six to eight weeks in advance so that the items you order for decorations and such will have enough time to arrive through the mail. In addition, you will not feel rushed to find the perfect items, but you will have time to enjoy the process.
When you put something off and it becomes rushed, it usually becomes a hassle. Try to keep your attitude towards the party relaxed and cheerful so that your daughter's happiness at the party will not be tarnished by how much work it is for you.
By planning six to eight weeks in advance, there will also be time for the invitations to arrive and for you to collect RSVPs. This will allow you to know how many people to plan for.
Likewise, you will be inviting people early enough that they will be able to set aside the day for the party. If you invite people too late, they often have other things going on and not very many people will come.
While you do not want too many at the party, you do want enough to show up to make your daughter feel special. In addition, it is best if your daughter's best friends can show up.
Even if things do get crammed together at the end, you can still throw a wonderful party without getting stressed out. By planning at least part of it ahead, you will reduce the stress you will feel as the party gets closer.
The first thing you will want to do is write everything down. Write down a plan of when you will have certain parts of the party done by, what things you need to buy, who you will invite and so forth.
After you have written down everything you can think of that is related to the party, you will want to either purchase or make your own invitations. Homemade invitations can be just as cute as and incredibly cheaper than store bought invitations.
One thing you may want to do is have your daughter help you make the invitations. Fold a piece of construction paper in half and paste a cut out of a Disney princess on the front.
Write the words "Your Invited!" on the front and then write all of the party details on the inside. Another idea is to start by cutting out a card in the shape of a tiara.
Add glitter around the edges and then write the party details in the middle. Or, you can do the same thing only on a star shape and attach it to a stick to make a pretty wand.
You will have to hand-deliver these invitations as they will not go in the mail very well. It can also be a lot of fun, if you have the budget, to put the card in a padded mail envelope with a cheap necklace and ring pop.
This will make the little princesses you are inviting very excited about the party. Then, of course, you can order professionally designed cards online as well.
The next thing you will want to turn your attention to are party favors. It will be easy to find princess related paper plates, plastic cups, and silverware as well as princess tablecloths.
Pink crepe paper is also very cheap and found at most dollar stores. Anything you could possibly need under this category can easily be found online and ordered.
Of course, you will also want to think about games to play. One of the games you may want to play is called Kiss The Frog.
In this game, all of the players stand in a circle around the 'princess.' The princess has a chocolate kiss and is blindfolded.
The rest of the players each draw a piece of paper from a bag. Each of the slips says 'animal' except for one which says 'frog.'
When you say go, all of the players must make an animal sound, but the only one who can say 'ribbit' is the one who drew the frog slip. The princess must find the frog and hand him or her the chocolate kiss.
