In this Royal Princess Birthday Party by Undercover Hostess, Erin focused on soft pastel colors, sparkly accents, and a chic styling approach to bring one very dreamy birthday celebration to life! You might even call it a little girl’s “dream come true”. ;)
From rose-shaped Beauty and the Beast cake pops to dress-up gowns for Ariel, Merida, Snow White, and more, LOTS of different Disney Princesses made a cameo at this pretty party. I’m especially loving the vintage style Cinderella and Prince Charming silhouettes, though, which served as a simple & elegant greeting for guests when they arrived!
Party Highlights to look out for:
- Dessert table linens styled to look like Cinderella’s dress – complete with bows!
- INSANELY AWESOME Princess Castle Cake by The Chocolate Box
- Chic Cinderella and Prince Charming silhouettes on the front door and mantle
- Ruffled curtains flanking the dessert table (repurposed from the birthday girls bedroom)
- Frozen Donut Balls + colorful Disney Princess Dress Cookies
Party Details, as told by Erin…
Like many four year old girls who just absolutely love anything princess, my daughter seems to attend a Royal Ball several times a day. I was thrilled when she asked for a Princess Birthday Party and couldn’t wait style it in a unique way. The challenge was to make it fun and appealing for both boys and girls.
For the theme, I decided to focus on princess silhouettes for a sophisticated feel. Pink and blue were used as the main colors, which was a great way to include both the little princes and princesses.
Our royal guests were welcomed at the front door, which displayed hanging Cinderella and Prince Charming cut outs. I love having the theme right there immediately when your guests walk up to your door!
The Dessert Table
The linens on the main dessert table were styled to mimic the look of Cinderella’s dress. The table was draped with a soft pale pink and accented with blue bows. The Chocolate Box created a beautiful castle cake, which served as the focal point of the dessert table. The cake was centered on the table and framed by soft white ruffle drapes (repurposed from my daughter’s bedroom).
The three piece silhouette backdrop over the table is one of my favorite decorations! Accented with a candelabra, pink roses, vintage books, and delicious desserts, it definitely created the luxe royal look I was going for!
I extended the princess theme into the other desserts as well. Various princess cookies, “Frozen” themed donut balls, and Belle’s red cake pop roses were served. The Beauty and the Beast themed cake pops ended up being one of the most talked about desserts. They looked incredible and tasted amazing!
The Royal Table
The idea was to have all the guests dine at a royal table, so one long table was created to achieve the look. Crisp white linens were used as the base, styled with silver candles and pink roses as a centerpiece. A pink chandelier hung from the ceiling tied it all together.
One of my favorite pieces on the table were actually the custom princess silhouette paper plates, they helped bring the entire theme together.
Princess Party Activities
Our princess-inspired games and activites included:
- a large inflatable princess carriage for a bounce house
- a “Seven Dwarfs” mining station where the kids shifted sand to find gemstones
- a dress up area with princess clothes for the girls and swords & crowns for the boys
- face painting
- a “Brave” station where the children threw water balloons at a target
I am lucky enough to have a handy husband and he constructed the mining trough. The dress up station was brought down from her room (nothing like cheap décor!)
The party turned out beautiful and the kids had a blast playing games and eating delicious desserts. When my daughter walked outside and saw the tables set up for her party, her facial expression made all the planning worth it for just that!
