6 Perfect Princess Party Ideas for Crafty Mums

Princess Party 2011 with Alexis

Is your little princess’ birthday fast approaching? The ‘princess’ party is a favourite theme amongst little girls, but with these crafty costume and food ideas you can throw the best, most memorable princess party in town!

Make your own crown and tiara

No princess outfit is fully complete without a princess crown or tiara! The best bit is that you can probably make one with bits you’ve got lying around at home.

Why not make your little princess a headband tiara (great for younger girls as it won’t fall off!) like the one in the photo above by blogger Lu Bird Baby? To make, you’ll just need a headband, some rhinestones, felt and glue. Check out the tutorial here.

Another great idea is to use scraps of fabric and ribbons to make some dress-up crowns like the ones below by We Wilsons. By using different templates, the crown can be made into different shapes to suit different identities – a princess, Cinderella, a queen and even a king! Check out the tutorial and get printable templates here.

Complete the outfit

Every girl wants to be dressed like a princess at some point in her life! From Cinderella’s blue ballgown to Rapunzel’s braided hair, there are so many options to choose from. A Cinderella tutu like the one below by Little Pink Monster is a great place to start – check out the tutorial!

In terms of hair, this waterfall triple-braid style below by Princess Hairstyles is surprisingly easy to do and your little princess won’t ever want to take it out! Check out the step-by-step video tutorial here.

Don’t forget the princess party food!

Now comes the best bit – party food! Don’t ruin the great princess theme with typical sandwiches and sausage rolls – there are so many much more creative and impressive ideas out there!

Blogger Bird on a Cake came up with this fantastic idea for Rapunzel tower cakes that are oh-so-easy to make yet look stunning. You can check out the recipe and tutorial here.

Another brilliant idea is to make a crown topper for the cake. Even if you’ve gone for a shop-bought cake, this gorgeous and on-theme topper will add an extra special touch. Blogger Rose Bakes created the stunning gum-paste tiara below and you can find out how to make your own over on her blog. Just make sure you create it well in advance as it takes some days to dry!

Party Bags

Last but not least, if you are really tight on time, some simple things to do like making all the food and food carriers pink (e.g. pink jelly, pink bottled milk, pink lollies, mini strawberry jam sandwiches, etc.) is an easy way to stay on-theme. If you have enough room, let the little princesses themselves bake biscuit wands and crown cupcakes at the party!
