Fairytale Princess Birthday Parties

Give your little Princess the Royal Birthday Party of her dreams! A Fairytale Princess Party is a timeless classic and with these amazing ideas it will be easier than waving a magic wand!
Invitations: Use parchment paper or any paper with an aged appearance and cut to a rectangular shape of approximately 7 x 9 inches. You can age regular computer paper by using a teabag. Have all your invitation details printed out in a royal script and cut to size. With a teabag and cup of warm water simply wet the bag and gently dab it all over the paper. Not to much water as the ink may run! Set aside to dry. The method is up to you - have a practise round first. Then you can lightly burn edges to give an older appearance. Once dry, roll up the invitation. After a few rolls throw in a small amount glitter towards the middle and continue rolling. Tie with a ribbon and seal with a sticker if desired. You can use a script like this - "Here Ye, Here Ye", "Her Royal Highness, Princess____, requests your presence at a royal ball given in honor of her __th birthday."
Decorations: Pink and Lavender everything and don't forget the Fairytale Princess tableware and supplies to really set the theme! Use helium balloons on the mailbox, in doorways, on chairs, as centerpieces, on vases, floating freely and pretty much anywhere you can tie a balloon. Decorate your ceiling with a streamer tent. Find the center point or a light fixture and attaching 12-14 twisted lavender and pink streamer lengths to it. Floating them out a good 2 feet apart and attach them to the corner edges of the ceiling. Decorate your walls with enlarged images or posters of the classic Fairytale Princesses - Snow White, Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty. The table setting must be worthy of a Royal Princess! Start with a pink tablecover and spread white or opalescent sparkles or gems on the table to look like diamonds. Use a centerpiece of white roses (fake or real) in a clear vase filled with sparkly gems or beads. Finish off by tying a pink or lavender tulle fabric bow onto each chair. Decorate the Birthday Princesses chair as her royal thrown. Cover her chair with tulle, and attach flowers, gems and balloons all over. For some added Fairytale flair, use props from your favorite stories. For example -A large mirror with a poster beside it written "Mirror, Mirror on the Wall," Who's the Fairest of Them All?" How about a bowl full of red apples with a "POISON" sign on it. What about a frog (stuffed or garden decoration) wearing a gold crown holding a sign that said - Kiss Me. A poster of a glass slipper or perhaps and ladies dress shoe decorated with the saying "Have You Seen this Slipper?" Garden Gnomes really look like the 12 dwarfs!
Activities: Enchanted Makeover - You can transform a playroom or your daughters bedroom into the Princess Salon. Have in your Salon an assortment of wigs, hair bow, clips combs and glitter spray to decorate each others hair. In the makeup area, set a table with eye shadow, lip-gloss, nail stickers and body & face glitter. Have each girl do each others makeup in beautiful princess style. If this is for a younger group a few extra hands will be needed. Have plenty of chairs and mirrors available so the little ones can admire their new look.
Crafts: Make you very own Princess Hat using plain cone party hats in pastel colours. Using pink and purple tulle or ribbons, simply push through the top point of the hat 12 inch pieces of the ribbon with a handy item like a knitting needle. Pull all the way through and tie off on the inside of the cone hat. Around the bottom glue colored lace, fur, ribbon or pom poms. This would be great if done beforehand so the guests could receive one to wear during their makeover! Make your very own Princess Wand with wooden steak skewers or wood dowels for the handle. Prepare star shapes out of any thick paper or craft foam. Pink, purple or chartreuse colours are perfect! Using wood glue or hot glue, have the kids glue on a star to the tip of the wooden skewer, and then glue another one, to the back of the first star, so that the wooden skewer isn't seen. Once the glue is dry, having the kids decorate it by covering the star with a thin layer of glue and sprinkle different color fairy dust (glitter) over their wands to make them truly magical.
Games: The Frog Prince - Pin the Tail on the Donkey with a twist! The players must try to plant a kiss on the frogs lips using their very own lips and a tube of red lipstick! This game is so much fun! You will probably have to make your own frog poster. You can draw it freehand or enlarge and print one off the Internet. It should be as large as possible. Line the girls up, blindfold them, apply a thin layer of lipstick, spin them around 3 times and see who can plant a kiss closest to the Frog's kisser! Princess and The Pea - Read the girls the story of the Princess and The Pea to set the mood and have them understand the premise. Then pull out four small throw pillows and a small bouncy ball. Ask the first player to turn around while you hide the ball under one of the pillows. The player sits on each of the pillows and tries to guess under which pillow the ball is hidden. Repeat. Snow White's Mirror, Mirror on the Wall - Choose the first player. She is taken to a chair about 6 ft in front of the group of guests. She looks into a hand mirror, closes her eyes and says "Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who's the fairest of them all?" One of the guests in the group disguises her voice and says "You are." The player opens her eyes, looks into the mirror and tries to guess the voice. If she gets it correct, she remains princess. If she doesn't, the girl that disguised her voice becomes princess. Repeat.
Enchanted Edibles: Open faced sandwiches cut into shape with heart and star shaped cookie cutter. Once shape is cut from bread, spread a thin layer of cream cheese topped with a layer of strawberry jam. Sprinkle with iridescent edible sparkles or sugar crystals. Offer a selection of jams - peach is also very yummy! A healthy option is to have an assortment of vegetables and fresh fruit with dips served on fancy silver dinnerware. Princess Punch - Before the party, freeze red juice in ice cube trays. Tropical fruit punch works well. On party day serve lemon-lime soda with the red cubes topped with frozen blueberries. Serve out of fancy goblets or tea cups. Make wand cookies! Simply prepare star shaped sugar cookies and slide a wooden Popsicle stick under each cookie before baking. Bake as usual, and frost as desired. Wooden craft sticks are sold at most craft stores. Try your own favorite recipe or ready-made cookie dough from the grocery store. The cake can be a round or heart shaped cake. Frost it with pink icing and place a fancy silver tiara (plastic) in the middle. Around the tiara spell out in lavender icing - HAPPY BIRTHDAY _____. Top the cake off with a good sprinkling of sugar crystals to give it a sparkly and glowing effect.

That was a fantastic idea .When my twin boys turned four, a Star Wars party was perfect.
I made the invitations using the original Star Wars Episode IV poster graphic and added the words "May the Fours Be With You".I made a Death Star pinata out of a punch ball balloon (since it was a large sphere) and paper mache. I painted an old broom handle bright green and added a foam/duct tape handle to make a light saber pinata stick.I printed thank you notes on small printable cardstock with a picture of Yoda and the words "Very generous you are." on the front. It was a great party.
