Is your child obsessed with princess characters? If that’s the case, perhaps you are considering throwing a princess themed birthday party!
To inspire you we have gathered some princess party ideas that you can use to plan your child’s ideal princess birthday.
1. Rent a princess character entertainer
Hiring a princess is a must for the ideal princess theme party! The great thing about hiring a princess for parties is that you won’t need to think of a lot of other activities.
For example, our princess party entertainers come with so many fun activities like live singing, princess crowning ceremony, games, magic and even face painting or balloon twisting! Check out this video for our princess party highlights!
Kids will be completely engaged throughout the duration of the princess entertainer’s stay, which means you get to relax a bit! And other parents will compliment you of how amazing the party was, since their kids will be talking about it for weeks.
To rent a princess character you should determine which princess is your child’s favorite. If they are old enough, ask them which princess they would like to see at their party.
Our most popular princesses for birthdays are (in order of popularity):
2. Buy or make princess birthday décor
For princess birthday décor, the first thing you should consider is balloons, since balloons are such an easy way to create a festive atmosphere!
Depending on your budget, you could either hire a balloon decorator, or DIY your balloon décor. Balloon Parlour, Everlasting Sepals, Little Rose Party Company and Blooms and Paper are some great local options in Vancouver & Lower Mainland!
Some of these fantastic local businesses can even hire other types of princess décor and party supplies to make your party look truly out of this world!
If you’re feeling thrifty you could buy a themed balloon kit from the party section of a store like Amazon, Walmart, Michael’s or Real Canadian Superstore. Balloon kits come in many colors, so you could pick a color that fits your princess theme.
Especially if you’re renting a princess character entertainer, it may be a good idea to plan for a photo wall, so your child and guests can get great photos with the princess! Tinsel foil curtains surrounded by balloons could make a great photo wall. So does any nice looking fabric that you can drape on a wall.
For smaller decorative items, like table décor, Party City or Dollar stores will have some great options! And of course, if you and your child enjoy crafting you could even make some decorative princess items yourself.
3. Choose your princess party food
For the main course our party parents usually opt for something easy such as pizza or sandwiches. After all, you can’t really go wrong with them.
Why not make your food more princess themed by making or buying a princess cake or cupcakes? A classic “Barbie cake” could easily be modified into a Princess cake by choosing a doll and colors that match the princess theme.
Or you could buy or make colored cupcakes that will, when combined with appropriate cake toppers, look like the princess in your theme!
If you’re looking for a great baker to order your princess themed cake or cupcakes from, why not try Michelle’s Sweets and Treats?
4. Plan princess party games and activities
If you are taking our advice and renting a princess for the party, then you don’t have to worry about the party activities a lot! Our princess for party packages come with so many fun things for kids.
But, if you still feel like adding something extra, why not organize an easy activity like a princess pinata or coloring? These activities could keep the kids busy before, or after your princess character comes.
