I’m not exactly a girly-girl, so when my youngest said she wanted a Princess Party for her birthday, I panicked a little. Sure we could have princess costumes, but I knew I needed to do something more.
So I looked for royal Princess Party ideas…stat!
Thankfully, there are plenty of Princess Birthday Party ideas out there to save the day!
From pinatas to tiaras to photo booth props, the market for princess party ideas is filled with amazing supplies to make your little one’s special day a memorable celebration.
Since I’m sure I’m not the only mom who’s not well-versed on princess party planning, I thought I’d share the things we used to pull-off the picture-perfect Princess Party!
Princess Party Ideas

Happy Birthday Crown Banner – I may not be super-girly, but even I loved this heart and crown Happy Birthday banner! We hung it behind the food table to make sure everyone room in the house had some princess party bling!
Princess Party Pack 18 Plates and 20 Napkins – We had six little princesses at the party, so this party pack gave us plenty of plates and napkins. I also bought a plain set of pink napkins just in case, but we didn’t need even need them.
DecoSet Cake Topper – While browsing princess party ideas, the cakes people featured always looked incredible. Unfortunately, even though I like to eat cake, decorating it isn’t my forte. This castle and princess cake topper set saved the day. All I had to do was bake two rectangular cakes, and decorate them with pink icing. Totally doable!
Pink Gold Party Decoration Kit – My daughter absolutely loved having these gorgeous pink, white, and gold paper pom poms hanging from the ceiling. She said it made her feel like she was at a royal ball! I may or may not have recycled some of them for use in my own home office. I shall never tell!
12″ Latex Diva Princess Balloons – These bright balloons were filled with helium and attached to the mailbox and the front of the house. You could also use them to decorate the princess party palace inside if you wanted to.
20 Count Princess Birthday Invitation Cards – Email invitations may be all the rage, but there’s something special about a handwritten note. My daughter agreed, so we set to work filling out these precious Princess Birthday Party invitations for her friends. Even though we didn’t need 20, it gave her plenty of opportunities to practice writing them out without us worrying that we’d run out.
Princess Royal Event Door Banner – One of the cutest princess party ideas I found was a royal entryway. This door banner worked great to create a fun transition between our entryway and the party room.
Princess Little Lace Cupcake Wrapper – My little princess is also a budding baker, so these pretty princess cupcake wrappers were perfect for the cupcakes she made for her friends to take home.
Princess Metallic Sash – What fun is a princess party without some bling?! These metallic princess sashes were a hit with all of the little girls who attended!
Princess Party Treat Boxes – Treats and party favors are great, but without a way to get them home, they can be messy! These princess party treat boxes let guests take home everything all in one container.
Tiara Cupcake Toppers – No princess cupcake is complete without a tiara cupcake topper! These beautiful golden toppers were a hit!
Crown Star Garland – According to the princess party ideas I was browsing, there’s no such thing as too much garland. So, when we saw this tiara and star garland that matched perfectly with the other that we found, it was a must-have. We hung this garland from the dining room chandelier.
Pull String Princess Castle Pinata – Every princess party needs a castle pinata! This colorful one held four pounds of party treat goodness and the girls had a blast breaking it open!
Princess Tiara Crown Craft Kit – Since my daughter loves crafts, it was only natural that part of her princess birthday party featured a tiara craft. There were 12 tiaras in the set and more than 400 sticker shapes!
Kiss The Frog Party Game – This party game is a twist on the classic birthday game, Pin the Tail on the Donkey. Instead of a donkey, the poster features a frog, and party guests have to try to stick a set of paper lips on the mouth of the frog. It got plenty of princess giggles!
Princess Photo Prop Party Accessory – If there was ever any question that the royal princess and her guests arrived by carriage, this funny photo booth prop put aside all doubts. The girls absolutely loved having their photos taken with it!
Pretty Princess Photo Booth Props – We also had all of these props in our Princess party photo booth station. There were 20 different things for the girls to use, so we got a lot of silly pictures!
Princess Royal Event Snack Caddy – We placed these on the table and filled them with cups of candy and princess popcorn. I tied a couple of balloons to the handles to make them even more fun.
Tutu Table Skirt – And, to round out the princess birthday party dining table, we used this soft, tulle table skirt. I actually got two – one for the table with the food, and one for the table where the girls were sitting to eat. It definitely set the tone and would be one of my must-have princess party ideas for those who will be hosting a princess birthday party soon.
Here’s to hoping that these princess party ideas inspired your creativity, and will make planning the next princess birthday party a bit easier! Good luck!
