A girl is never too young or too old to want to have a Princess Party. Since it is right after Halloween, now is one of the best times to stock up on princess costumes. Here are some quick easy tips to help you plan your party.
Set the Date & Time:
Proper planning for your Princess Party will make it a wonderful success.
Choose beautiful princess party invitations to announce the party. Use colorful princess language like in this invitation sample: Hear Ye, Year Ye! By Royal Proclamation, you are hereby invited to Princess Sherry's sixth birthday party. State clearly the details of the party. DATE -- TIME -- WHAT TO WEAR
Great ideas for your Princess Party Wardrobe:
-- BEST PRINCESS PARTY DRESS
--A PRETTY PURSE

Tuxedo Jackets are perfect for any Princes that might be attending.
Princess Party Decorations:
Create the perfect look for your party. FLOWERS -- BALLOONS -- STREAMERS Choose royal colors of purple, gold, pink and silver.
Prepare the food:
A princess must have proper princess treats. Small tea sandwiches can be cut into fun shapes, like crowns. Fresh fruit makes a colorful and tasty treat, perhaps make fruit wands. Strawberry sundaes or cookies cut with Princess cookie cutters. Don't forget the cake or perhaps make a Princess cupcake dress.
Set the table:
You could go all out with Princess themed plates, cups and napkins. Or you could find a color theme and hit the Dollar Store to purchase your tablecloth, napkins and place settings. Use lace doilies and fresh flowers to create a centerpiece. Be sure to include place cards for proper seating of your guests.
For the Host Princess or Birthday Girl you could decorate a throne just for her to sit in while eating, participating in activities and/or opening presents.
Games & Activities:
Having plenty of activities arranged is a great way to start the party off. If there are some children that don't know one another, this is a great way for them to get to know each other. Princesses talking across the tables while having fun making crowns can make for life-long Princess friends. Here are some great activity ideas:
Create a Crown:
Have an adult help you and your guests decorate and create their very own crowns. Provide a selection of glitter, jewels, markers, and crayons to decorate with.
Fill a box with several pairs of shoes - all styles and sizes.
Two teams, each member must find the proper pair, put the shoes on and properly walk the red carpet and join their team members on the other end of the red carpet.
Princess Poise Relay:
Mark two points 10-15 feet apart.
Have your princesses line up in two groups. Place a book on the head of the first princess in each row. See which row of princesses can walk fastest to the line and back with the book properly poised on their head.
Enchanted Jewel Hunt:
Place a number of treasures and trinkets around the room or in the yard for your guest s to "hunt" for. Give each of your guests a purse or treasure box to hold all of their precious jewels in.
Dress the Princess:
Fill a big box with a variety of princess clothing. Have teams try to properly dress an adult princess within 2 minutes.
From a proper distance, see if your guests can toss their crowns onto the throne.
One of the funnest parts of a Princess Party is the makeover. Enlist your Princesses older sisters or maybe their favorite babysitters to be the make-up artists and make sure you use kid friendly make up.
A Wish Circle:
Have all your guests stand in a circle, facing each other.
Each guest crosses their right arm over the left and holds hands with the person on either side of them.
The hostess of the party starts with thinking of a special wish for the princess on their right hand side.
She sends this wish by gently squeezing the guests hand.
This continues around the circle until a wish is returned to the host princess.
The host princess thanks her guests for attending her enchanted princess party and then unwraps the wish circle by spinning to her right, raising her hands above her.
Now that the festivities are done, your little Princesses could enjoy their favorite Princess movie!
Remember while this is your child's special day and you want to make them feel special and warm inside, another little girl there could easily have their feelings hurt if things don't go right for them, so pay attention to every child so your party will be a success. Teach all of your Princesses to remember that a proper Princess is Polite to Everyone and Always Uses her Best Manners.
Make the memories last:
Don't forget to take lots and lots of pictures from the beginning to the end.
