It is inevitable that a princess party is in the future of most parents with a little girl. However, with so many options, how do you choose which princess? How about Cinderella? Cinderella is by far the best known Disney princess. Her beautiful dress and her happy forever moment are the dreams of most girls. Making those dreams come true for your little princess is almost like fairy dust.
Idea # 1
In honor of a royal proclamation, send a parchment invitation. Find parchment paper clip art online and print the party information on the blank area of the parchment. In each corner add a different image.
Idea # 2
Print the party information on card stock. Try to place 2 invitations on a poster board if possible. Leave a half inch of border around each individual invitation for cutting. Cut out each invitation carefully. Keep as much of the border as possible around each invitation. Find Cinderella clip art online (preferably clip art that does not have a background image). Print the clipart on translucent paper or vellum, reprinting 2 Cinderella images on each piece of vellum. Be sure to resize the Cinderella clip art to cover the invitation and leave a half-inch border all around. Carefully cut the printed Cinderella images to the same size as the pre-cut invitations. Cinderella pictures should be placed on top of invitations and measure exactly. Using sticker scissors, cut a decorative border around the vellum and cardstock. Poke two small holes in the top of the invitation. Lace the bow through both holes from the bottom and tie a bow in the front. Use decorative tape or ribbon to match the party supplies. Your finished product should be a Cinderella invitation on top that can be lifted to reveal party information.
Cinderella party supplies are available at most party stores and online, but a little originality will set your royal affair apart from the rest. Cinderella’s signature colors are sky blue or sky blue and white. Use these colors to decorate pancakes and balloons. Recreate the Clock Tower with a long piece of cardboard or cardboard. (Please use online pictures or movie for reference). Paint a clock face on top and don’t forget to set the time at midnight.
Your princess will need her royal coach, so keep some pumpkins on hand for transformation. If your party is during harvest time, visit the pumpkin patch and pick out some pumpkins to display in your party area. Try to get the pumpkins with the vines. Your local grocery store probably doesn’t have pumpkins. If your holiday is not during harvest, your local craft store should have fake pumpkins and gourds. Liven up with some fairy dust (fine glitter) for an extra touch.
Twelve o’clock pizza – Using a regular round pizza, arrange (or have arranged) the ingredients to simulate the hands of a clock. Make sure the pepperoni clock is striking twelve.
Pretty Blue Dress Drink – Combine any clear soda with any blue Kool Aid drink. If you don’t like giving kids soda, Kool Aid Blue Drink works too.
Cheese tray – Cinderella’s mice may not be invited to this party, but you can honor their heroic efforts with a tray of cheese that they would love.
Pumpkin sauce – This sweet bathroom is an ultra cute centerpiece. Find a simple pumpkin sauce recipe online. Serve the sauce in a hollowed out squash. You can add stickers or paint a design on the outside of the pumpkin for added flair. Let the squash dry before adding the sauce. Serve with graham crackers or cinnamon.
Party game ideas
That’s my shoe! – Hide several shoes around the party area. Whoever finds the most shoes wins. You can buy shoes at a local thrift store.
Kiss the frog – similar to Putting the Tail on the Donkey, whoever puts his lips near the frog’s mouth gets his prince!
Fairy Godmother Makeover – Buy Cinderella dresses for girls (if there are boys, buy knight or prince) and get them ready for the ball. Be sure to take before and after photos of each child. You can find princess party dresses that are sold in bulk online.
Regardless of what you decide to do, ask the princess’s birthday girl what she thinks will be a success for her and her friends. A princess knows what she wants! The royal ball is sure to be an enchanting and majestic event.
