Princess Party Invitations
Princess Party Invitations
Your little princess will want to summon her royal court with the perfect invitation. There are many wonderful designs to choose from, both whimsical and elegant. Consider sending a personalized photo invitation featuring a picture of your daughter in her finest princess gown complete with wand and crown or tiara. This is an excellent way to set the mood as well as inspire the guests to arrive dressed as princesses themselves.

When addressing the announcements, a fun way to include your guests in the theme is to add "Princess" to each of their names. Make it sound like a posh affair by including phrases in the text such as "Hear ye, hear ye," "Your royal highness," and "You are cordially invited to a royal celebration." Don't be afraid to be over-the-top... The more royal and official it sounds, the better!

If you're inviting boys to the party you may consider making it a mixed theme so they have the opportunity to dress up and play along. Princess parties work quite well with knights, frogs and even pirates... All it takes is a little imagination!

Princess Party Favors

Make your guests feel like royalty by showering them with princess accessories as they arrive. The girls are sure to adore costume jewelry and tiaras, white gloves, ring pops and candy necklaces, plastic clip-on earrings and feather boas or sparkly Christmas garlands. You may even consider setting up a miniature beauty parlor station where you apply age-appropriate makeup like lip gloss and blush. Give each princess a toy hand mirror so they can admire their transformation.

For headwear, try making cone-shaped princess hats ahead of time. Roll pink poster board or cardstock in cone shapes and fasten with strong tape. Attach a piece of yarn or ribbon to the bottom for the wearer to tie under their chin, and several strips coming from the cone at the top to look like a tassel. Or, cut the cardstock in the shape of crowns, paint them gold and fasten with tape or hairpins. You can even make an activity of letting the girls decorate their hats or crowns with glitter, sparkly stickers and glued or stick-on plastic gems and rhinestones.

Your princesses will need wands, as well! Simply cut cardboard or foam core in the shape of stars, paint pink or gold with sparkles and glitter and fasten to wood or plastic sticks or cardboard tubes. You can also buy styrofoam stars, spheres and other shapes at craft stores to decorate, or fasten multi-colored shiny ribbons to the top to make the wands look "magic" when the girls wave them.
