Gateway to princess fun, made with an old sheet and a contruction paper crown.
My daughter loves princesses, and wanted our entire house decorated for her party. Here are princess birthday party ideas that I used for her party.
I decided to decorate specific areas of the house such as our entrance way and living room. But considering I was trying to put this altogether at eleven o'clock at night and there's nowhere to buy princess party supplies and decorations around here at that hour - I decided to make my own.
The princess themed curtain shown in the picture here is just an old white sheet, and all the other decorations I made out of construction paper and spare ribbon. To get it all to stick to the wall, I used a stapler - I folded the sheet over so the staples wouldn't show. The crown is yellow construction paper, drawn by hand and with a few sequins and fake jewels glued onto the points at in a rim around the bottom.
I took the old lace curtains from my scrap material box and made them into gathered princess draperies that I hung in front of our two book cases, filling out the white lace with a strip of pink fabric. I pierced paper crowns on top after decorating everything with sparkles. The garland is alternating hearts and crowns, twisted together out of pipe cleaner.
Then I made fancy bows and swags out of some regular old pink crepe-paper rolls, and paired them up with little pointy princess party hats, made out of circles of old wallpaper. The veils are just plastic shopping bags! The hearts are white construction paper with hand-drawn illustrations.
In lieu of a birthday cake I opted to make princess themed cupcakes. I made it really easy by baking cupcakes, making pink icing and then using a silver crown cupcake topper. They were a huge hit with everyone and fit the princess party theme perfectly.
The birthday party favors that I gave were made from things that I gathered at the dollar store. I found lots of Disney princess themed items like lip gloss, hair accessories, nail polish, a necklace and bracelet (for dress up play). I printed personalized stickers with each girl’s name and a special “thank you” note that I included inside from my daughter.
I kept everything simple, and you can't go wrong with a pink theme for a princess party.
The princess birthday party was a huge success and the girls loved it!
