If you're the parent of a little girl, you are well aware of the power and allure of the princesses. If your little one knows all the words to Frozen, Tangled, Brave, The Princess and the Frog or any other animated fairy tale, a princess party might be in your future. Make your princess party stand apart from the many many many you will attend this year.

While our favorite images are a little pink-heavy, they'll work in any color. Play with colors from your little princesses favorite films - blue and white for Frozen, greens and yellows for Brave...be open to thinking beyond princess pink (if she'll let you).

Royally Yummy Treats

Serve up some pretty tasty food for your group of princesses. Try these catering ideas, and remember, pinkies-up!

BFF Float
A pretty blackberry fruit float, or a BFF float, is a perfect drink to serve at a princess party. Just take a tall glass, fill 2/3 full with a berry or cherry soda,  add a scoop of ice cream, and garnish with fresh berries on top. Yummy, pretty, and delicious!

Cake & Cookies
These sweets are a staple of the princess diet. And cakes are a must for a party - birthday or not!  Ask your favorite bakery to give the pastries a look fit for a queen-in-training. Cookies like French macarons will give the party a little bit of fanciness (feeling brave? make your own). Simple sugar cookies decorated with glitter and pearls are princess-worthy, too.

Pretty Tea & Sparkling Punch
Your pincesses need a pretty drink to sip while they ooh and ahh over the beautiful treats.  There are lots of pretty caffeine-free fruit teas that are vibrant shades of red and pink such as raspberry or pomegranate tea. Or, try a cool blue colored drink mix and some sparkling soda.

Tiny Tea Sandwiches
Classic tea party fare like finger sandwiches are cute, delicate, and easy for little fingers to grab. Chances are, kids won't like traditional tea sandwiches like cucumber and butter. But you can make your own kid-friendly version of tea sandwiches with easy ingredients like turkey, avocado and hummus, or cream cheese and jelly. The trick is to use thin sandwich bread and to cut the sandwiches into small squares.

 

Pretty Decorations Fit for a Princess

The key to planning a pretty princess party table is to stick to your chosen color palette. Add a lot of white to make the her favorite color really pop, or choose a fun combonation of 2-3 colors to keep decorating easy and eye-catching.

Transform Your Chairs
Make ordinary chairs into tiny thrones, simply get some colored ribbons and fabric and tie them around the backs of the chairs. If your chairs are not white, you can drape some white fabric on them and then tie colored ribbons around the backs.

Fun and Games for Her Royal Highness and Her Court

Princess Dress UP
Tiaras and tutus will transform your child and her guests into a beautiful royal court of princesses. Add some fairy wings and sparkly wands and you have a coterie of fairy princesses to celebrate your child on her special day. Guests can wear them for the party and take them home after the celebration is over as a party gift.

The Royal Photo Booth
When your princesses are all dressed up, you can have them sit for photos with a fun portrait frame. Hire a photographer through a comprehensive event-planning service like GigMasters to get some great shots and send copies to guests later on as a party keepsake.
