Planning a Princess Birthday Party

Teagan is 3! I know, I have a hard time believing it too. For her 3rd birthday this tutu, glitter and pink loving lady wanted a Princess Party! I have said it before, but it is so true - she is certainly challenging this non-princess mom! I must say, this party was perfect for our princess. We had a ton of fun, a great space, fun food and special people to celebrate a special 3 year old! Check out our party and fun and make sure you share these fun ideas for other princess's to enjoy!

Teagan's godmother made her a beautiful floor length tutu full of sparkles that she loved. Such a special touch to this party because it was hand made. I also found an adorable personalized princess t-shirt on etsy The cap sleeves were so cute!! She walked into her party feeling so special!

Shirt from BabyBirthdayTee on Etsy.

One of my first purchases when planning a birthday party is the perfect birthday invitation. I wanted to find an invite that had princesses on it but also included boys. I loved this quote "If you're a princess or a prince, this is a royal event you don't want to miss!" This was a great way to make it clear that both boys and girls were invited. I also found this great print on etsy from November Blue Designs. They were super easy to work with and I was so pleased with how it turned out!

Oh the cake! Once again, my long time friend and personal "cake lady friend" as Jude calls her hit this one out of the park! Teagan's only request was that she wanted ALL THE PRINCESSES on her cake. Adding a sparkly tiara for the cake topper was perfect too

I knew that I wanted to really bring out the theme of all of the princesses in the food so I started jotting down some ideas and soon I had a whole princess themed meal. So fun!

Using a tiara cookie cutter we made Aurora's Crown Sandwiches - Peanut Butter and Jelly for the kiddos.

I used Terrell Family Fun's Princess Popcorn recipe for a perfectly pink and purple treat!

I gave my BFF the task of creating Cinderella's Veggie Carriage and she delivered! Oh my gosh! A pumpkin carriage carved just like it is in the movie surrounded with fresh veggies. Yum!

Since this party was going to be inside we had to have some activities. I decided that Jeremy would need to channel his inner artist to create a Pin a Kiss on the Frog game for the kids to play. This simple poster board drawing and construction paper kisses was a huge hit with the kids and they LOVED playing it.

Another activity that we added to the party was a photo booth. This was such a simple set up too. We took a rectangle tablecloth and hung it on the wall, then alternated crepe paper colors and put strips of paper on the tablecloth for a colorful photo backdrop! So simple!

I found some great photo booth props from Let's Get Decorative on etsy. These high quality props were so durable for this age of kids. Perfect addition to a fun princess party.

It isn't a princess party without out some prince and princess crowns. I found these foam pre-cut crowns from Oriental Trading Company along with some jewel stickers for the kids to decorate their crowns. This was such a hit with all of the kids. Each of them created something with their own style. So fun!

Even the boys got into it! I love finding ways to incorporate every one into a party. We had boys and girls ages newborn to 6! Great turn out too, even with number of cancellations due to sick kiddos.
