Your presence is requested at

Once Upon a Time in a Land Far, Far Away,
A Princess was born on a Very Special Day!

is the extraordinary occasion!

Her Royal Highness (Name) requests the honor
of your presence at her (Number) birthday coronation.

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! You are cordially invited to
attend (Name's) Royal Birthday Celebration.

Then add the day, date, and time.

For party location, select from the following and add the address:

(Last Name's) Palace
(Last Name's) Castle
Magical Dress-Up Palace
Magical Dress-Up Castle
(Name's) Royal Palace
Magical (Last Name's) Kingdom
Then conclude with an R.S.V.P. and a request for princess costumes to be worn. Select from the following:

R.S.V.P. to Queen (Name), (Phone #)
R.S.V.P. to Queen Mum (Name), (Phone #)
Regrets to Queen Mum (Name), (Phone #)
Regrets to Queen (Name), (Phone #)
Can you party happily ever after? R.S.V.P. to Queen (Name), (Phone #)

Please wear your best ball gowns.
Please come dressed as a princess.
Dress in your princess best.


Ask guests to wear their princess best. For some additional princess party ideas, give guests any of the following when they arrive:

PRINCESS PARTY IDEAS FOR CREATING A PRINCESS HAT: Take a plain, pink cone party hat and cut top off. Tie knot at end of a 24" to 36" long piece of pink tulle (depending on size of child). Insert tulle in hat and glue knot at hole area to hold in place. The tulle will flow down child's back. Wrap lace and satin ribbon around bottom of hat and decorate hat with jewels, sequins, and glitter.

PRINCESS PARTY IDEAS FOR CREATING A PRINCESS HEADPIECE: Make each girl a headpiece by twisting pink and silver metallic star-type of garland into a circular shape to fit a child's head. Tie eight pieces of pink and white curling ribbons to the back of the headpiece. They will need to be between 36" and 60" in length depending upon the height of the child. You obviously don't want them too long so they don't get in the child's way as they flit about being a princess. Curl the ribbons and use some bobby pins to hold the headpiece in place.

PRINCESS PARTY IDEAS FOR A PRINCESS WAND: Here's an adorable combination that is reasonably priced and would be perfect to hand out as your guests arrive.

In the alternative, if you want to make your own, here's a few princess party ideas. Use 12" long, 1/4" wooden dowel. Paint Styrofoam star pink. Spray it with some tacky glue and then sprinkle it with some pink glitter. Then you will need to tie eight pieces of white and pink curling ribbons to the end of a dowel. For added security, glue them in place. The ribbons should be about 24" long. Once the star dries, push onto dowel over ribbon knot, and glue in place. Curl ribbons.

PRINCESS TIARAS: If you're short on time or not inclined to making your own tiaras, there's a great option pictured above that has marabou trim.

PRINCESS MAKEUP: Apply blush, lipstick, and body glitter on princesses.

PRINCESS JEWELRY: Glitter jelly bracelets and hologram hair twists.

For the boys, you can request they wear their prince best and give them the following:

PRINCE CROWN: Make a crown out of gold card stock or poster board. Decorate with jewels, sequins, and glitter. If you're looking to buy a fun crown for all your prince attendees, there's a great one pictured above.

PRINCE SHIELDS: Make a shield out of foam-backed poster board and cover with foil. Glue gun a piece of elastic to the back of each shield for the prince to slide his hand through. Glue a small, purple piece of shield-shaped card stock to the foil and write their name as follows: "Prince/Sir (Name)."

For some more princess party ideas for costumes, you might want to take a gander at the photos of PRINCESS COSTUMES that I have posted on this page. I'm sure you'll get lots of ideas for creating your own or if nothing else, you will surely enjoy feasting your eyeballs on all the lovely princesses.


The dominant royal colors for your princess party should be pink, purple, lavender, blue, cream, white, gold, and/or silver. Select your colors carefully so that you create the royal atmosphere that your little princess desires. As you select from the following princess party ideas, all you'll need to do is to adapt your color choice to coincide with your selected colors.

  • Create a red carpet leading up to your doorway. Use a carpet remnant or create the "red carpet" from red felt, red poster board, or red plastic tablecloths.

  • Set up a special castle gate at your entrance for all your little princesses to walk through in order to enter the enchanted kingdom. This can also make for a great photo-op.

  • Either create your castle at the front door area or on a wall for a photo-op location. Make castle frame from foam-backed poster board or cardboard. Measure width of door frame so you know how wide to make it. Create 2 castle towers with a jagged edge. Join them together with a piece of straight cardboard and hang a sign in this area that says, "Welcome to "Name's) Castle." Paint castle in shades of gray and use black for the windows.

  • Outside of the party area, hang up some royal bunting flags. Make them yourself out of silver or gold paper, and then cut out the flags. Add flags to wooden dowels using some glue. Then, place them in the ground along the sidewalk, making a royal walk up to the party area.

  • - Place pretty pink or white lanterns all around the edges of your party area. Place some battery operated LED lights inside of the lanterns as well, which will make them put off a soft glow, adding to the princess party ambiance.

  • Decorate ceilings with pink and white twisted streamers and clusters of balloons with curling ribbons.

  • Create a pretty entryway canopy by loosely attaching pink and white streamers to center of ceiling and looping them to the wall joint to create the canopy. Allow each streamer to go all the way to the floor.

  • Fill up your archways or doorways with pink and white streamers; this will create added fun as your little princesses walk through these openings.

  • Dress up your wider hallways and door frames by using pretty pink sheets and tying them back with lovely pink bows.

  • Hang glittery stars from your ceiling using either satin ribbons or curling ribbons.

  • Dress up the party tables by adding pretty pink or lavender tablecloths. Then, use some tulle in a matching color to make a table skirt. It will really add to the tables and it is very cost effective, since you can purchase colored tulle at a fabric shop or hobby store for a reasonable price. You could even add some white lights along the edge of the table, just under the tulle.

  • Use white tablecloths and pink toppers, or white and pink sheets to cover the tables. Tie the corners using pink and white ribbons and scatter some pink, glittery confetti, gold stars, sequins, and jewels on top.

  • Place white paper doilies, princess plates, napkins, pink plastic cutlery, and plastic champagne or wine goblets with pink bows tied on stems and glue jewels to bottom of glasses to create royal goblets at each place setting. Tie napkins with pink satin ribbon.

  • Hang sheets of white Christmas lights on walls with lightweight, see-thru, light pink fabric over lights.

  • Hang white twinkle lights around door entrance.

  • You can also hang jeweled or metallic foil curtains at your doorways for your little princesses to walk through.

  • Cover the living room ceiling by hanging pink sheets, pink fabric, pink plastic tablecloths, or sheer pink fabric to create the ballroom. Then allow several pink and white helium balloons to float to the ceiling.

  • Head to your local thrift store and find a variety of different mirrors. Hang the mirrors up on the walls along the party area, or place them on the floor to stand up. Your princesses can enjoy looking at themselves in their princess finery and the mirrors add to the princess décor as well.

  • Turn regular chair into royal chairs by putting silver or gold poster board on them, taping the poster board doesn’t move. Then, wrap some white or pink tulle around the chair and tie it in a nice bow. You could also tie a pretty balloon to the back of each of the chairs.

  • Purchase or buy some royal crowns in silver or gold. Make sure they are fairly plain though, because you want to have room to write on them. Use a black marker to write the name of each child on one of the crowns. Then, place them at place settings, using them as royal place cards. You could use a more decorative crown for the birthday princess’ place setting. Girls can enjoy wearing their crowns as they enjoy the royal food.

  • Hang princess posters and/or princess decals on your walls, all of which can later be transferred to decorate your child's bedroom walls.

  • Transform dining room chairs into princess thrones by taping gold and silver poster board around the backs and decorate with jewels, glitter, sequins, tulle, etc. Add pink pillows to sit on or use pink glittery fabrics to cover chairs. Make the birthday princess' chair extra tall and extra special with more elaborate decorations.

  • Put vases of pink and white flowers around room.

  • Put out some pink balloons in front of the party location so guests can find it.

  • Tie pink tulle bows around all the party chairs.

  • Make sign that says, "Welcome to ____'s Princess Castle" and hang on front door.

  • Use a bubble machine near the doorway so your princesses get to stroll in through all the bubbles.

Sprinkle with a dusting of edible colored pink sugar. Label the fruit salad as “Royal Princes Jewel Salad.”

PRINCESS PINK LEMONADE – Make up lemonade and pour it into an ice ring mold. Allow to freeze for 2-3 hours. Once it is slushy, add strawberries to the bottom of the mold. Freeze until it is solid. Make up the pink lemonade, pouring into a big punch bowl. Place the ice ring into the bowl before serving.

PRINCESS FRUIT FLAVORED TEA – Tea parties always seem to go along with princesses, so consider serving up some princess fruit flavored tea. Most kids won’t like regular tea, but you can find fruit flavored teas, such as raspberry tea and peach tea. Serve up the tea in some pretty teacups and saucers. If you don’t want to use tea, make some pink or red punch and call it “tea.”

PRINCESS PINK BERRY SMOOTHIES – Another great drink idea for your princess party is to make up some princess pink berry smoothies. Not only are these delicious, but they are wonderfully tasty as well. Start with some ice and mashed bananas, then, add strawberries or raspberries, or add both to the smoothie. Blend and pour into pretty cups. Garnish with clear toothpicks that have a berry and a couple marshmallows on them. Add pretty straws so princesses can sip at their berry smoothies.

PRINCESS CREAM CHEESE STUFFED STRAWBERRIES – Not only does these strawberries taste amazing, but they look great as well. Cut the stems off strawberries, hollowing them out a little. Make a cream cheese filling by beating cream cheese with some sugar, to taste. Add a couple drops of red food coloring to make the cream cheese filling pink. Then, pipe the cream cheese filling into the strawberries. Arrange the strawberries on a platter. Melt some chocolate and then drizzle over the strawberries.

PINK PRINCESS POPCORN – Pop up several bags of plain popcorn in your microwave. Place the popcorn on baking sheets in single layers after lining the sheets with wax paper. Then, melt about eight ounces of white chocolate. After the chocolate is melted, add a couple drops of red food coloring to the chocolate to make it pink. Drizzle the chocolate on the popcorn, trying to distribute the chocolate evenly. Place baking sheets in your fridge, allowing the chocolate to harden. Place all the popcorn in a large bowl and serve up the pretty pink, princess popcorn.

PRINCESS FROG JELL-O – Your young princesses are sure to know the story about the princess and the frog. Make your own frog Jell-O by making up a batch of green Jell-O and dividing it among small pretty cups. Allow the Jell-O cups to gel in the refrigerator. Before the party, add a single chocolate frog to each “Frog Pond.” Serve to your princesses and tell them the now have their own Frog Prince.

PRINCESS PINK MACAROONS – Macaroons are always an elegant party food and they will look so pretty on your food tables if you make pink macaroons. Make the pink macaroon cookies and fill them with a delicious chocolate filling that your princesses will definitely approve of when they try them. Serve them on a pretty china tray.

PRINCESS SUGAR COOKIES - Using a slipper cookie cutter, cut cookie dough into slippers and cover with pink icing and decorate slippers with any combination of edible glitter, sprinkles, sparkling sugar, nonpareils, cake gel, or candied flowers.

STRAWBERRY ICE CREAM - Either get it plain or with strawberry pieces.
