How to Organize a Princess
Themed Party for Kids
Having a princess themed party means that you can have a lot of fun with a single theme.
Princess parties can
be held at home, or at specially organized themed events with professional entertainers, and can give you multiple options for games and dressing up.
What sort of things should be
focused on, then, for a princess themed party that’s going to ensure your children have a great day without spending too much money?
If you’re having a princess
party at home, you can focus on decorations and table settings that match up to the theme - Disney princesses might be the simplest option if you want to buy decorations together, although you can also find more generic designs with little effort. Depending on the age of your child, you might also want to include themed cakes and food that can be eaten as a buffet or sit down meal - buffets tend to be easier to organize with slightly older children.
When making princess themed
food for a birthday party, you can focus on some staples like fairy cakes and marshmallow cones, as well as items that you can bake together with your kids like cupcakes. Biscuit wands can also be used if you want to add a fairy princess theme to your party, while it’s possible to make up cheese crown slices, mini sandwiches shaped like castles, and bowls of grapes and fruit that look like jewels. Princess themed cakes, and mini tea sets can be similarly strong ideas.
For games, you can experiment
with versions of well established birthday party activities; this might involve having treasure hunts where children have to find glass slippers, or decorating games where kids can pin a tiara onto a picture of a princess. Versions of Musical Chairs with songs from princess themed films, or Musical Statues made into Musical Curtseys can be similarly effective, as can Princess Says, an adapted version of Simon Says.
Another option to take for a
princess themed birthday party is to hire a professional kids party planner to put together a themed party. These can include special games, dress up competitions, and discos and other entertainment. Children can be encouraged to participate in competitions, while presentations and awards can be made to different children for being there on the day.
It’s possible to have a
princess themed party without breaking the bank.
DIY food and cake that features simple
princess dresses and castles can be a good way to approach catering, while you can create your
or make homemade princess dresses, to cut down on other costs.
Hiring professional party organizers can help you setup your themed party, for
example DNA Kids Princess Parties come with a great selection of games. This can also make it more cost effective if you can collaborate with them over the best options to have for the day.
