I have a confession to make: I've had countless princess parties throughout my life. Every year, I would beg my mom for another one, and she always managed to make each party even more special than the last. I still remember the details, from the magnificent castle cake my grandmother made to twirling in my shimmery pink dress while waiting for my fellow princesses (and even a prince!) to arrive.

So, if you're looking to plan the perfect princess party that your little princess will never forget, you're in the right place. And the best part? You don't need any magic fairy dust or a fairy godmother to make it happen!

Princess Party Invitations

Roll out the royal red carpet right from the start by sending out regal invitations about a month before the big day. To add a touch of magic, consider hand-delivering them to each guest's house. It will make them feel like they're being invited to a grand and enchanting ball.

If you want to go the DIY route, here's a budget-friendly idea from my mom: Write out all the necessary party information on pretty pastel paper, roll it up, and tie it together with a gold ribbon. Voila! You have a beautiful scroll invitation fit for royalty.

Don't have time to DIY? There are plenty of ready-made princess party invitations available that will have your guests counting down the days until they put on their gowns and crowns.

  • This classic princess invite is budget-friendly and suitable for any age.
  • Add a DIY touch without lifting a finger with this magical watercolor birthday invitation that looks handmade and comes personalized with your details.
  • Invite attendees to your castle with a fun castle invite. This pack even includes envelopes.

Princess Party Decorations

It's time to transform your home into a magical kingdom for the princess party. Fortunately, adding a touch of magic is easier than you think. Inflate some balloons, lay out a pastel pink tablecloth, and hang streamers to set the mood. If you want to take it up a notch, create a special space for the birthday princess to receive gifts or pose for pictures, like a custom fairytale backdrop. You can also add balloons around an armchair or pile up some festive pillows for a cushy seat.

Here are a few more princess party decorations that should be on your list. Trust me, you'll want them all in your shopping cart!

  • Toss some confetti in the air! This princess confetti pack will add a simple touch of elegance to any princess party.
  • Capture the fun with little ones in this giant carriage photo booth. Everyone will be lining up to get their photo taken.
  • Add a touch of flair with this pretty pinwheel decoration. It's the perfect addition to any blank space you're trying to decorate.

Princess Party Activities

To keep the royal highnesses entertained, plan a schedule of events that will make the party festive from start to finish. But don't stress if activities don't go exactly as planned. As long as everyone is having fun, your little princess is bound to feel extra special.

Food Fun

Start the party off with a fun foodie craft. Make edible princess wands by preparing and washing strawberries, blueberries, and watermelon. Cut watermelon slices into star shapes and place the fresh fruit on a wooden skewer. And if you're up for more crafts, set up a decorate-your-own-tiara station with pre-cut paper crowns, jewels, glitter, and markers.

Dress Up

It wouldn't be a true princess party without some dress-up time. Ask the attendees to bring their favorite makeup, accessories, and gowns for a princess fashion show (and have some extras on hand too). Colorful tutus, like the ones from Kids Kingdom Boutique, are a must. Give each princess a turn to strut their stuff in true regal fashion—with stick-on earrings and plastic heels, of course.

How to Make a DIY Princess Tutu

Need a princess outfit in a hurry? Making a DIY tutu is the way to go! If you have older kids at the party, you can turn this into an activity too. Just make sure the chaperones handle the scissors.

Materials needed:

  • Colored tulle
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors
  1. Cut the ribbon based on the princess's waist measurements, leaving a few extra inches to tie.
  2. Next, cut strips of tulle that are two times longer than your desired tutu length. Fold each strip in half and tie them onto the ribbon using slip knots. Keep going until the entire band is filled and poofy. You can get creative by alternating colors or adding a second layer of tulle for an extra-bouncy tutu.
  3. Ta-da! Give her a spin, and she's ready for the ball.

Once the princesses are all dolled up, it's time for some games! Work off the sugar rush with a princess dance party and sing-along, filled with Disney princess music numbers from Frozen to Snow White. Two other fun games I enjoyed were musical "thrones" and pin the crown on the princess.

Princess Party Food Ideas

Princess Layer Cake

We've got the most magical princess party food ideas for you to try—from finger foods to the perfect princess cake. Be prepared for a bunch of frosting-covered grins by the end of the event.

Finger foods are perfect for little hands! These adorable Princess Toasts and Unicorn Mane Cookies are a must-have on your menu. And if you're having a tea party, don't forget to check out some dainty tea party foods as well. Need a last-minute princess treat? Make a sweet-savory trail mix using pretzels, animal crackers, and pastel candies, like this Kiddie Crunch Mix.

Princess Cakes

I can't think of anything more fitting for a princess party than a bright pink layered princess cake. You can even place a tiara or a sparkling wand candle on top for some extra flair. Pink velvet cupcakes are easy to grab and eat at outdoor events. And if you want to go all out, challenge your decorating skills with a show-stopping unicorn cake.

Princess Party Favors

Send the princesses home with unforgettable party favors. You may even want the guests to open their gift bags during the party to help them get all dolled up.

While homemade candies are a great goodbye gift, here are some of our favorite stuffers:

  • A princess needs a set of pearls, and these plastic pearls are the next best thing.
  • Crown each guest with their very own tiara. This tiara set is sold in packs of 12, so make sure you snag enough for all your party-goers.
  • Older tots (and their parents) will love these fairytale hair ties. With a wave of a wand, your princess' locks will stay in place.

With these tips and ideas, you're well on your way to planning a magical princess birthday party that your little one and her royal guests will cherish forever. It's time to create memories fit for a princess!
