If you’d like some inspiration when it comes to princess party ideas, you’re not alone. Every little girl loves to feel like a princess and we’ve collected a variety of ideas to help you prepare an elegant princess party where YOUR little one is the bell of the ball!
PRINCESS GEM PARTY
From shimmering balloons to foil-trimmed tableware, make her day shine with coordinated color and decorations. A Princess Gem party is all about the dazzle of jewels, and what’s more elegant than a princess party (in her favourite gem colour, of course) with subtle elements like gemstones, crowns and shimmering temporary tattoo jewelry to play out the theme.
As you can see, the birthday girl in our ‘Princess Gem’ party chose rose gold! The stage was set with an opulent balloon garland in her theme colors that framed the 'Happy Birthday' message. Jewel-like rose gold cupcake wrappers and beverage cups, along with scattered glass gemstones, created the perfect table setting. A lightly iced cake topped with fresh flowers made for a stunning centrepiece. After the cake was done, a shower of confetti made for regal fun!
You don't have to go it alone when you plan a princess gem party. We have an e-book that shows you exactly how to put on a party she'll remember for a lifetime. How-to video tutorials walk you through each step. Find recipes, ideas, a shopping list and more!
PRINCESS HIGH TEA PARTY
With a garden setting, crown placeholders and fancy place cards, a floral centrepiece, as well as pretty paper decorations and balloons hanging above, your princess will feel like she’s royalty at her elegant high tea party.
A flower-topped pink cake takes centre stage, while smaller white plates rest atop large gold plates for a layered, high-end look. Over the table, bouquets of balloons and pretty paper rosettes create a canopy that turns high tea into pure magic.
With poufy pillows to sit on and a pink-and-peach color palette, your princess's guests will sit and sip over giggles and gossip. Find your princess's magic color and create a princess high tea party she'll love.
MINT & GOLD PRINCESS PARTY
Which princess could resist a sky-high cake trimmed with cool mint icing, edible gold glitter, and flowers? The minute she walks into this party venue, she'll gasp with amazement. Mountains of balloons soften the festive tables' curvy lines as the girls chatter with delight.
Keep the mint-and-gold theme going with pretty gold crowns for all the princesses in attendance so they can look–as well as well as feel–like royalty. Mint-infused lemonade or other beverages taste so much better when you sip them through a gold and white paper straw.
Top large gold plates with smaller white ones for a crisp, cool look. Pull it all together with mint and gold striped napkins, all atop a mint-colored tablecloth for a sophisticated look. Before everyone leaves, tuck a crowned cookie into a mint and gold striped treat bag.
Move over Flamingo there’s a new bird in town! A Swan Princess party will evoke magical memories for years to come! Get swan-themed decorations in pretty pink, gold, and white and set your table for fun.
Biscuits iced in pretty pastels and embossed with swans in contrasting colors rest on a white-and-gold dotted paper plate for a charming look. Cake pedestals in pink, gold, and purple show off the gorgeous, edible-glitter-trimmed cake.
A swan princess party is the perfect time for a sleepover and a movie–swan-themed of course! Try one of the staged Swan Lake ballets or the Swan Princess movie itself.
PINK & GOLD PRINCESS PARTY
For all the girly girls who love pink and royal gold, this party is perfect. Stock up on pretty in pink decorations and go into full-out princess mode.
A bright pink tablecloth sets the stage for a gorgeous tablescape. Vases of roses in jars dipped in gold glitter create lovely centrepieces, while pink-and-white chevron dessert plates and paper cups provide a gorgeous contrast with the gold-and-white chevron large plates.
A pink-and-gold cake sits atop a pastel pink pedestal, flanked by sweets on both sides. Top the cake with a pretty princess or choose a Happy Birthday cake topper trimmed in gold. Seat the royal birthday girl at the head of the table and let her unwrap all the gifts after the royal feast.
FLORAL SWAN PRINCESS
Perfect for the little ballerinas in your life, this variation on the swan princess theme goes all-out feminine with plumes of white feathers, gold accent balloons, and pink drinks sipped from pretty clear goblets. Gold dot dessert plates shine, setting off the iced flower-shaped biscuits and sweets.
The atmosphere here is light, almost cloud-like, so play on that theme with whites and the lightest pastels, carrying the theme throughout the party with foods and beverages to match.
Of course, you can always improvise on these suggestions. Choose from a wide range of frilly feminine decorations that will send every little princess ballerina twirling in delight. Fresh flowers, if they're in season, would provide the perfect accent for this floral take on the swan princess theme.
FROZEN PRINCESS PARTY
A Disney princess that continues to inspire is Elsa. We love this party because it’s a sophisticated twist on a popular princess. Selecting a silver, blue and white color palette makes this a magical theme all by itself, even without the Elsa icon!
The tablescape is a wintery scene made life like with center pieces of dripping glass gems among white forest branches. The plates, cups and napkins themselves all contribute to the snow and glistening ice elements all setoff by a silver tablecloth that shimmers in the sunlight.
While Disney’s Elsa may have inspired this party, it has taken on a life all of its own. Valentina’s 3rd birthday is one she is sure to remember when she got to be queen for a day!
SHABBY CHIC PRINCESS PARTY
Roses, lace, and hearts rule this shabby chic princess party for lucky Kitty! From icing rose-topped cupcakes to lacy icing on the biscuits, this party is fit for a princess. Balloons adorn the cake table, drawing everyone's attention to the tall, double-layer cake.
A hand-drawn sign perched on an easel lets everyone know who the princess of the day is, while a golden heart sticker draws attention to the message. A vase of pink-and-white flowers softens the black-and-gold sign.
Cookies with the birthday girl's initials never fail to delight, especially when there’s a garden of icing roses growing around the letter’s base. Cake pops arranged in a vintage rose-embossed vase or atop a retro-chic pedestal add a touch of extra charm. A garland of homey cloth bits hangs under the table for a rustic touch. Serve your royal guests on pink and white damask plates to continue the shabby chic look.
One thing’s for sure, your little princess—whatever her style preference—will have a fabulous time when you use these ideas as the springboard! Add your own ideas—or let your little princess think of a few herself—and she’ll have a party she’ll remember for a lifetime!.
