If you are trying to come up with an idea for your daughter’s pending birthday party, you should consider a princess tea party. Many little girls dream of being like the beautiful princesses they seem in cartoon movies or hear about in their favorite fairy tales. You can create a magical afternoon for your little girl with the ultimate princess tea party guide.
The invitations to the ultimate princess tea party should be fantastic. Of course, you can purchase party invitations for several dollars and send them out in the provided envelopes.
Alternately, you and your daughter can make the invitations. With some construction paper or card stock, you can decorate them with sequins, beads, lace, feathers, ribbons, and glitter. Just make sure that the piece of paper can fit inside a card envelope and you will have no problem mailing them. Hand delivering them is extra special.
For your ultimate princess tea party, the directions should be ultra feminine and extravagant. Cover your tea table with white or pink tablecloths with fake rose petals and lace. Use paper doilies under plates and serving pieces. Use large vases full of fake or real flowers and ribbons. Festoon doorways and furniture with wide ribbon, tulle netting, or crepe paper.
Dress Up Costumes
You can invite the girls to come in fancy dress for the princess tea party. They will have fun finding costumes to make them look like princesses. However, if you don’t want to put that pressure on the other mothers, you might want to include a dress up game during the tea party.
Gather up a lot of cheap beads, lacy curtains, shawls, scarves, and other fancy accessories that the girls can dress up in. Provide paper or plastic crowns for all of them.
Princesses must have fancy food at their tea party. Of course, little girls might not actually like to eat watercress sandwiches, honeyed tea, and caviar. You should prepare simpler foods for them, but maintain the princess tea party theme.
Drinks should be served in plastic, or very sturdy, tea cups which rest on little saucers. If ice cream is to be served, it is a cute idea to serve that in the tea cups after the drinks are done.
The actual snacks for the tea party can include many things. Small cakes and cookies should be iced in pink and white and offered on pretty doily covered silver trays. You can purchase plastic silver trays at any party store, or cover your own tray with aluminum foil. Making small sandwiches like peanut butter and jelly and cutting them into heart or crown shapes is also fun.
Throwing a princess tea party will give you an afternoon of magic and delight. Your daughter and all her friends will have a fabulous time dressing up, eating dainty food, and playing princess games.
