When I gear up to plan my children’s birthday parties, I like to start really early. I’m a planner and enjoy getting all my plans/thoughts on paper and as time goes on I can pick up things that I know I will need. I always start with the theme and build from there. For my daughter’s 4th Birthday, she wanted a Princess party. For her 2nd birthday, I did a Tea party and I had a lot of items that I knew I could reuse. For instance: pink tablecloths and personalized napkins from Pottery Barn Kids, personalized.
Princess Tea Party Invitations and Wording
Pink Scroll with think pink ribbon tied. I placed a mini-star wand in the ribbon and ordered small “glass slippers” and placed the scroll inside the shoe. I found small Disney Princess treat boxes and placed the shoe/scroll inside the box, put pink tissue paper and tied the box handle up with Pink Princess ribbon.

SNOW WHITE’S ARRIVAL:
Snow White surprised the girls, sang a song, took a photo with each girl and read a story and a game.
PASS Cinderella’s Slipper
I used one of the invitation high heels and played princess music and the girls passed the high heel. (Like Hot Potato)
THE ROYAL BALL:
I lined the girls down the hall and formally announced each one into the “Ball.” Then we played Disney Princess music and let them dance.
PIN THE TIARA ON THE PRINCESS:
I blew up a photo of my daughter in a pretty dress and laminated it. It was a large poster size. I found a tiara online and printed it on a color printer, laminated it and cut it out. The kids played the normal. The kids took turns trying to get the tiara on the right spot on her head.
Was fantastic, pink, a crown and a boa!
Plastic Disney Princess trick or treat bags Disney Princess 24 piece puzzle, Princess Pez dispenser, Princess barretts, all sorts of other princess goodies all from the .99 store. Totally loaded!
I created her Thank You note cards with photos from the party – using several photos of my daughter blowing out her candles, with Snow White, etc. On the Front of the card it said – Thank you for Celebrating with Me!
Inside – photo of her blowing out her candles read – Wishes Do Come True.
On the back of the card said, “Hope you had a Princesserific Time!”
The party turned out great!
