Little girls love princesses. Little girls love parties. Therefore, little girls love princess parties. Chances are, your daughter has been playing princess since before she could work the DVD player by herself to watch “Frozen” just one more time. So when you’re planning her birthday party this year, it may be hard to make the princess theme feel fresh. How about inviting each guest to transform herself into a princess upon her arrival at the birthday ball with the following kid-safe princess party updates?
Idea #1: Invite each guest to see herself as a princess
Provide each girl with a set of princess lipsticks and her own little beauty mirror at the start of the party. This way, guests can apply their makeup and check their look throughout the festivities. TownleyGirl’s 13-piece Disney Princess Hair Accessory Set provides ponytail elastics, clips, headbands, bows, a mirror, and a brush for all of your eager princesses. As they transform themselves into the fairest one of all, be sure to remind each girl that it’s how she sees herself that truly matters.
Idea #2: Give modern girls modern nails
A contemporary princess needs a manicure, of course, but plain pretty-in-pink styles are so yesterday. Give your smart and creative girls Emoji nail art sets. With 24-pieces of expressive Emoji fun, each princess can find just the right way to express herself.
Idea #3: Deck the halls with princess style
Decorate your ball’s grand entrance with a string of sparkly hair bows. Similar to a traditional garland, a handful of glittering hair bows clipped to a length of yarn or a pretty ribbon will add to the festive atmosphere. Our Disney Princess Deluxe Bow Set comes with four colors and even more sizes and styles. The best part about this double-duty decoration? After the party, your daughter can incorporate the leftover bows into her school day or weekend hairstyles. Bonus: These adorable accessories are easy for little fingers to operate, so any girl over age 3 can style herself princess-pretty with no trouble at all.
Idea #4: Bake color-coordinated princess cakes
Use jam and fresh fruit to whip up a vibrant batch of a princess’s favorite food: Cupcakes. What makes this birthday treat so special? Each delicious mini-cake is frosted with a color and flavor that corresponds to one of four Disney princess’s favorite flavors of lip balm. After separating plain white frosting into four small bowls, mix blueberry preserves into one dish to make Cinderella’s favorite blue, add raspberry jam to another to make Rapunzel’s tasty raspberry, dice fresh strawberries to make Sleeping Beauty’s signature pink, and spoon a dollop of grape jelly into the last bowl to make Ariel’s pretty purple. As long as a little mess doesn’t scare you, how about letting your little princesses learn and have fun by choosing their flavor and frosting their treat themselves? That means less setup for Mom and more hands-on fun for your guests!
