If your little princess is dreaming of a fairy tale birthday, you might be wondering how to make the party truly magical. Here are some ideas on throwing a regal party that’s fit for a princess!
Get the girls ready for a magical party with princess themed invitations – think tiaras, castles, and lots of pink! Personalised invites with a photo of the birthday girl are great for adding a unique, special touch. Dotty about Paper has a great range of princess invitations. So, just add the wording and you’re ready to go!

Pretty pink decorations can transform a room into a colourful castle! First, purchase tablecloths, paper plates, and cups. Party Delights has a fabulous range of essential party items in a gorgeous pastel pink. Next, add these pink balloons into the mix – the girls can also have fun playing with them! And you can celebrate the birthday girl with some personalised bunting, too!
Finally, fill the party room with sparkly flourishes. Glittery tiaras look beautiful!
To make princess party food, you just need to add a spin to old favourites. Sandwiches and biscuits become a special treat when they’re cut into crown and castle shapes! You could even go further and cook tiara-shaped pizza. And you can transform fruit into a magical treat by making a fruit wand! To make them, all you need to do is cut watermelon into star shapes and add berries or grapes to a stick.
There’s a lot of choice when it comes to a princess-themed birthday cake. Choose a recipe that your birthday girl will love, like this decorative bake. Or if you need a quick, stress-free option, you could order a ready-made cake, like this stunning one from Tesco.
Alternatively, you could make a simple bake and decorate it with cake toppers. You could also use these to make some cupcakes for the guests!
And, if you decide to bake cupcakes, make them extra special by displaying them on this magic castle stand from The Book People!
Next, you’ll need to get drinks ready! Strawberry milkshakes, pink lemonade, and other bright drinks will go down a treat, especially when served in these petite plastic milk bottles. You can add berries and colourful straws to really make them stand out.
Princess Themed Entertainment
Dressing up in regal attire is a must for the perfect princess party! On the invitations, ask the girls to come in their favourite royal gowns. Continue the fun at the party with glitter tattoos and make-up. It’s great fun for the kids and makes for some memorable photographs – especially if you get some fun themed photo booth props!
These ‘make your own’ tiaras will keep the kids happy for ages! They come with everything they’ll need to design and craft their very own royal crowns.
Once they’re dressed up, it’s time for some games! A sing-along is always a favourite. Additionally, you can change up classic games to fit the theme – pin the crown on the princess, have a scavenger hunt for candy jewels, and play enchanted ball-themed musical statues.
If you really want to make the day unforgettable, you could consider inviting a princess to the party! Visit sites like My Little Princess Parties to hire an entertainer who can sing, dance, and play games with the girls.
Finish the day on a happy note with some party bags. Fill the bags with small sweets, stickers, stationery, and age-appropriate jewellery. A special personalised sticker on the bag is the icing on the cake.
If your birthday girl is set on a princess party, but boys are invited too, try combining it with a superhero theme! All you have to do is add a spin on the ideas in this blog – use a range of hero cake toppers, pair ‘make your own masks’ with ‘make your own crowns’, and try out some superpowered games by clicking here! And don’t forget to pick invitations that both groups will love!
