Out of all the Disney princesses, Cinderella has been an all-time favorite for kids. Girls are just crazy about how the unfortunate young woman became blessed with a good fortune and found her Prince Charming at the end. A Cinderella themed party is therefore inevitable for the parents of every young girl. Here is how you can organize a princess theme party that will let your daughter and her little friends have the royal treatment they dream about.
Outside the party venue decorate with light blue and yellow balloons. Have pumpkins lining the walkway to the party and hang paper birds in the trees with fishing line to look like they are flying low towards the party. Make the front door look like a castle and create a drawbridge from a large appliance box that guests have to walk over to get to the party. Make the drawbridge chains from strips of brown and black construction paper or buy large plastic chains at the home improvement store.
For the party table use a light or medium blue tablecloth with light blue or yellow plates, cups and napkins. Place glitter or silver confetti on the table (place a clear tablecloth over the table if the guests are younger then 3). Buy or make a horse and carriage and place it on the center table for a centerpiece. Party chairs can be made to look festive by tying tulle around the backs and then make a big bow at the back of each chair. Set out princess tiaras at each place setting or use to hold name cards. Instead of using paper plates (and if the children are old enough) use china or buy a cheap set of dishes that look expensive.
For the party food, try the following. Chocolate fountain with sliced fruit, marshmallows and other food items to dip into the chocolate. Sandwiches with the crust cut off and cut into triangles. Pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie or other pumpkin dishes. Sugar cookies cut into the shape of glass slippers or round cookies decorated to look like a clock almost to strike midnight.
