After selecting this
theme for your party, choose a slogan to use in your invitations, and to
use in tying in decorations and favors to your princess or castle theme.
"Castle Party at McKenzie’s
"Hear Ye, Hear Ye...Princess
Reagan is turning 4!"
"Tiffany’s Pink (Purple)
an invitation to let your young guests know what a
splendid time they will have at the party:
If you would
like to make your own invitations, make construction
paper castles that have a drawbridge that folds down and
write the party information. (i.e. Noble knights and
Ladies Fair are invited for feasting and festivities) on
the inside. On the envelope of each invitation address
each child as Sir Bobby of Smith or Lady Kelly of Jones.
Use their last name as the place they are from.
- Address each envelope to
"Princess or Sir (first name) of (last name), adding a "dom"
or an "ingham" to the end of each last name. For
example, Shannon Brimmer's invite could be addressed to
"Princess Shannon of Brimmerdom". and Todd Hunter's
invite could be addressed to Sir Todd of Hunteringham.
As an alternative, consider
attaching a computer generated or hand written tag with
all the party details to a tiaras, wand. Attach
the tag with curling ribbon, yarn, or a pipe cleaner.
- Consider sprinkling some magical
palace powder in the form of sparkle
powder, or castle
confetti inside the envelope to give guests a
sneak preview of the regal fun that awaits them!
- Consider attaching a
computer-generated tag to a mini
slipper with silver
ribbon. Invite guests by saying, "Only
you can fill this shoe...by coming to my Princess Party!"
Hand-deliver these invites on a lovely
satin pillow, (leaving only the shoe invitation
with each guest!)
Attach a bouquet of helium-filled pastel colored balloons
to a light post or mailbox so there will be no mistaking where the fun
will be that day!
your own medieval-style flags & banners

behind the chair where the guest of honor will be sitting.
way to create a focal point for your party is to start by setting the
table with themed plates, cups, napkins, table covers & centerpieces,
available in the princess
To create a designer look for your
party be sure to use a mix of themed tableware with coordinating solid
colored tableware. For
example you may want to use a coordinating solid colored table cover with
themed plates, napkins & cups and a solid
colored cutlery. Or you could use a themed table cover,
solid colored dinner plates, themed dessert plates & napkins, and
coordinating solid colored cups & cutlery.
Or you can build your theme around one
or two main colors and use a solid
colored tableware adding
centerpiece to the
table. If you choose to use only one color for your decorating, try to add
little touches of another color or a lighter or darker shade of the same
color to create a more pleasing effect. Adding little splashes of white,
black, gold or silver will not detract from your main color choice, and
the effect will be considerably more dramatic!
Order pink or lavender
and have them imprinted with your party slogan. Select a
metallic or foil imprint. The napkins will serve several
purposes...great decorating in disguise and a treasured memento for the
birthday girl’s scrapbook.
"Once Upon a
Time"...some precious little girls entered an enchanting garden or
palace room. All the princesses were
thrilled at the sight of what awaited them.
Tie bows with tulle across the top of each chair back. The
bows can be cut to any length, and even look lovely with tails trailing on
the floor. Make bows to hang anywhere and everywhere...chairs, doorways,
tree trunks, stair rails, deck posts, gift packages or table-ends.
No respectable party tabletop should be
left without a sprinkling of confetti! However, confetti isn’t
just for tables anymore! Sprinkle confetti
the outdoor pathway leading to your home or party location, in party
invitations, or even inside balloons for a great, unique touch at a budget
& Activities & Entertainment
a Ceileigh Band, one or several Minstrels, or a Harp player.
Dress Up -
Girls ages 3-8 love this part! Gather all the fun dress-up clothing you can find (or borrow from
friends)...fun, frilly, foo-foo dresses (size is completely irrelevant),
BOAS, faux fur wraps, high-heeled play shoes, capes, etc.
As each guest arrives, invite her into the royal wardrobe to
"dress up". After each guest has selected an outfit
befitting a princess, apply some royal makeup.
Finally, a princess party just wouldn’t be
TIARAS, always a big hit!
A Princess Costume would make a delightful
gift for the birthday Princess, and be terrific additions to a dress-up
box for many years to come.
Palace Parade - After all the party guests have "dressed
up", have the birthday child lead a palace parade through the
backyard or through the house with the help of a
musical instrument. The beaming smiles of the children during the
spirited parade will provide a perfect photo opportunity and some
priceless video footage.
Dragon Egg Hunt - This castle version of a classic egg hunt is a
kingdom-wide search for dragon eggs as opposed to Easter
eggs. Make a proclamation stating that the Queen has asked all her
subjects to help...a new batch of fire-breathing dragons is about to hatch
in her magical kingdom! Use plastic
Easter eggs, and for each egg found, reward the children
with one golden chocolate coin or wrapped piece of candy. This game is a
perfect lead in for the next game.
Slay the Dragon - Prior to the party, fill approximately 3-4 pink
or lavender water balloons
per child. After all the dragon eggs have been found, gather the children
in a circle for a quick fairytale. Starting with "Once upon a time,
in a magical kingdom, there lived a beautiful Queen named (birthday girl),
etc. All was happy in the kingdom until one day the Queen discovered that
one of the dragon eggs had hatched and a mighty, fierce, ugly,
fire-breathing dragon was running rampant! (Hold up a "cracked"
egg left over from the Dragon Egg Hunt). The royal wizard mixed up a big
batch of "Palace Potion", and the Queen needs your help to slay
the dragon!" Have dad, or another good sport, pose as the dragon. A
green shirt and some "fire" (craft foam or orange streamers)
dripping from his mouth make an appropriate costume. Have all the subjects
in the kingdom pelt the dragon with the pink palace potion (water
balloons) as he runs and growls at them. Guaranteed to create squeals of
delight...only dad gets soaked...and everyone lives happily-ever-after!
"Someday My Prince Will Come" - Play this princess
version of the tried and true party game of Hot Potato using a
Have the children stand in a circle. While the music is playing, they need
to pass the shoe to one another as quickly as possible. When the music
stops, the child holding shoe will be out. Continue playing until only one
child remains. A tiny "glass slipper" makes an adorable prize
for each child participating in this game.
Moat Mayhem - A traditional tug-of-war with a castle twist...divide
the children into two teams. Use blue water
gossamer to create a realistic illusion of water. Add a few
plastic snakes and stuffed or plastic alligators, and yell GO!
Musical Tiaras - Play this game using the same concept as the
classic game of musical chairs...one less tiara than there are children
for each round. Place a
Light Up Tiara
on a table that the Princesses must walk around while the
music is playing. When the music is turned off, the girls must scramble to
put on a tiara. The child without a tiara must leave the game and the game
continues with one less crown until there is one child remaining – the
Queen! The tiaras can then be used as favors!
Piñata Fun - A wonderful Dragon Piñata to
slay is a great way to conclude your event and we’ve yet to find a
child who doesn’t want to take a swing at one at a party! Try
using a Scepter as the "bat".
Royal Goblets – Let all the royal subjects decorate plastic glasses with
elegant faux jewels or sequins. The glasses will make an extra special party
favor and can even be filled with goodies after the children decorate
Palace Perfect Posing - For each party guest, you’ll need a
simple frame, a supply of faux jewels or sequins, and some tacky glue.
Prior to the party, use a metallic gold paint pen and "write"
each guest’s name, along with her royal title on the top edge of an Acrylic
Frame. Allow the children to decorate the frames and pose for a
royal portrait with the birthday
girl. Use either a Polaroid camera to send a picture home with each guest
or mail keepsake photos at a later date with thank you notes.
Magical Wands - Let the children decorate
the wands with Jewels, and trailing streamers made from
