Our youngest Bee is obsessed with princesses… in fact she thinks she is one. So when we asked what kind of birthday party she wanted, she immediately answered “a dinosaur princess party.” As I was contemplating how to incorporate dinosaurs & princesses, she changed her mind and decided just princesses.
I found some great princess party printables on Etsy (Amandas Parties To Go). They were absolutely adorable and so much was included. I love the ease of downloading the designs and being able to print as many as you need for multiple decorating uses. I attached the “Happy Birthday” letters with pink ribbon and added a circular princess cutout to each of the fans.
I also used the princess cutouts to create personalized favor bags. I hot glued the princess to a white gift bag and used colorful glitter fabric to make the dress 3-dimensional. For the boys, I used frog princes.
Since my Baby Bee loves Snow White, I made a Snow White themed cake, with smaller cakes – Cinderella & Belle themed- for her sisters (who celebrate their birthday in the same month). I am not talented with fondant, so I just stick with the basics- like the appropriate princess color and a small symbol for each princess.
Cookies, candy & cake pops filled the princess banquet table.
In addition to princess themed cakes, cookies and cake pops, we also had a make-your-own ice cream station. I printed the princess printables on round sticker labels and attached them to paper ice cream cups. I also hand dipped ice cream cones into melted candy bark and dipped them into sprinkles for a magic touch.
In addition to a princess pinata, we also had face painting and a make-your-own-crown station which was perfect for both little girls and boys. I set up bowls of stick-on jewels, markers and glitter glue along with crowns to decorate.
I special ordered each of the girls princess sundresses from two separate talented dress makers. It was a magical day!
