Make your little girl's special day one to remember by throwing her a unique and simple fairy princess birthday party that she and her friends will remember for years to come.
First, you will need to send out invitations. You can make a pretty fairy princess themed invitation on your own computer or buy some inexpensive ones at a party store. If you are into scrap-booking, you can even make your own invitations. Usually 10 children is a good number to invite. Encourage the girls to wear a fancy dress to the event. If budget allows, you could give them their own personal fairy princess dress with their invitation that they could wear to the party.
The day of the party, start by decorating the room you will have the party in by putting up pink and white streamers and matching helium balloons. You could place posters on the wall of her favorite princess or even framed photographs on easels of your daughter in her beautiful pink princess costume. You could have Disney princess CD playing in the background to set the mood.
Next as the children arrive, have them start working on an activity, like a free, downloadable fairy princess or Disney princess coloring page until everyone arrives. Have crayons and markers set out so they can color while you are ushering in guests.
When everyone has arrived, you can start by playing a princess game. You can have princess accessories and pictures hidden throughout the room and a page with clues, like a treasure hunt. Whatever the girls find, they get to wear or take home. They can all help each other until everyone has found one.
If you need one more activity, you could decorate a princess cone hat or make your own tiara out of a headband and beads.
Lastly, it's time for tea and cupcakes or birthday cake. You could do decafinated iced tea in little tea cups for the little girls or pink lemonade for those who would prefer it. You could have them decorate their own cupcakes with sprinkles or have them already decorated in your child's favorite way. At this time, if budget allows, you could ask a teenager to come dressed up as Cinderella or your child's favorite princess. You can find adult princess dresses for very reasonable prices and this ads a fun and unique element to your party.
When your guests depart, it is customary to send them home with a party favor. Inexpensive fairy wings would be a great gesture or a small party bag filled with your favorite princess items found at your local craft store or party store.
