Princess Party Ideas

Oh, how we love to plan birthday parties with fun themes for the cousins.  There is a special little lady turning three soon, who is all about Princesses, sparkles, and glitter.  This Princess Party was perfect for Baby Girl.  From tiaras to pink rock candy, this party is perfect for princesses of all ages!

Pretty Pink Princess Party ideas:

We were thrilled when we were asked to try out Betty Crocker’s online birthday party resource.  There are so many themes to choose from with all of the details set for you.  From cake ingredients to decorations, invitations and thank you notes, everything is planned out.

Once we picked our Princess theme, it was time to start on the details.  This is the part I love.  Planning all of the cute little extras makes this mama happy.  I love to plan out decorations, food, and favors that match up with our party theme.  The Betty Crocker party planner makes it easy to keep yourself organized and on task.  
Guest list, oh yes. That is an important part.  Invites going out a week before the party?  Yep, that happens 😉

Princess Party Decor:

We decorated the house with banners and balloons.  We used a dollar store table cloth to make big puffy decorations.  Pink + Puffy= Princess. Obviously.

A few simple vases with pink shredded paper and princess party decor details to bring a little bit of enchantment to our centerpieces. 

Every princess needs to quench her thirst with magic potion.

Princess Party Cake:

Oh, this cake was so much fun to make!  Baby Girl loved all of the sparkle, and shine that we had going on here.  I used the directions to make Betty Crocker’s easy crown cake to put this cake together.  

Late night cake making antics can be found on our Instagram feed.

I used neon food colors to make perfectly pink princess sugar cookies.

Princess Party Favors:

Princess Party bookmark favors DIY
When I saw these Princess Party favor tags I knew we would use them to make a great thank you favor.  Our little Princess loves books so a bookmark for all of her guests was the perfect way to say “Thanks”.  

To make our DIY bookmarks, I used pink yarn to make pom poms.  Wind the yarn around your fingers and tie in the center.  Snip the loops of the yarn into a puff.  Tie to a long strand of yarn.  Tie the other end to the favor tag.  Easy DIY bookmarks for all guests are done!

A book from the dollar bin made great easy (and cheap) party favors for the guests.  The moms and dads loved that this was a non-candy party favor, too.  

Princess Party Activity:

When our crew of family gets together, the cousins go wild playing together.  I don’t like to plan a lot of games and activities at our parties, but there are lots of ideas if you need them.  I created these open ended castle blocks for the cousins to build and imagine with.  

There was lots of castle building and pretend play with these Princesses and Knights.

We had so much fun with our Princess party.  Happy Birthday Baby Girl!
