Princess parties aren’t just for little girls anymore; mamas want in on the royalty action as well. Are you ready to plan a sophisticated, sparkling princess party for your best gal pal, with all the bells and whistles, and make her birthday an affair to remember? Breakout the tiaras and glass slippers and let’s plan this princess party!
Planning a princess party for a grown up princess can actually be a lot fun. Grab a friend or two and brainstorm princess party ideas over your favorite bottle of wine. Making plans together from sparkly invitations to sophisticated food tables will definitely make as many sentimental memories as the actual grown up princess party.
Invitations are the initial presentation to party goers that show the theme of the party. Since it’s a grown up princess party, you may want to embrace an old world style with brown parchment invitations with burnt edges. A modern princess party invitation might be full of glitter on white or pastel stationary. Either way, this is a royal affair so invitations should be mailed, even if there is an awesome email invitation out there. Here is a Bing search with lots of great ideas for invitations.
It’s a magical party, so turn your house (or party room) into a beautiful and spectacular fairyland. Pick one vibrant color to be the theme (pink, blue, yellow, etc) and then keep the rest of the colors white and silver. The best way to make the decorations elegant is to keep it simple. After the first impression, people tend to lose focus on the décor and shift their attention to conversations and food. Etsy has a great selection of unique decorations and party favors
First and foremost, you need a grown up princess cake. It is not difficult to make and by making it yourself, you can personalize it to fit the birthday princes. As for other party foods, think small. Party supply stores have crown and star cookie cutters that work great for finger sandwiches, fruits, cakes and brownies. As with most birthday parties, food platters rarely ever empty unless they are circulated. Here is a fun recipe for Pink Party Punch: 1 2 qt pitcher of pink lemonade, 1 2 qt container of raspberry sorbet, 1 2 liter bottle of lemon-lime soda. Pour pink lemonade and lemon lime soda in a punch bowl; then scoop in the raspberry sorbet right before the party starts.
Add a little extra bling to the princess birthday party by having tweens and teens be servers. They are old enough to have fun with it and not be scared for life with embarrassment. Have them dress in white tops and white skirts or leggings. White gloves would be a fun little touch. Make name tags for each server and have the names be different princesses. (If this is a co-ed adult princess party, recruit a few boys as servers with princes names.)
