Lil' Princess 1st Birthday Party

A first birthday is a once in a lifetime experience and a special milestone for you as a parent. We know your child is a true princess, so celebrate her with a 1st birthday party with a princess theme complete with fairytale decorations and party favors!

1st Birthday Princess Invitations
Invite your guests to the princess birthday party with fun, colorful personalized princess theme invitations. Send out your invitations 4-6 weeks in advance of your party. That will give everyone time to get it on their calendars and to get even more excited about the party. Let your guests know to dress like princes and princesses.

Or, how about inviting your guests to go on a trip to a magic kingdom with a pink boarding pass invitation?

You can also buy fill in the blank princess invitations. Just fill out the details and you're all set. There are even matching thank you notes that you'll want to get for after the party.

1st Birthday Princess Party Supplies and Birthday Decorations
String a mixture of hot pink crepe paper and light pink crepe paper around the room. Then welcome everyone with a princess welcome banner and a lifesize cutout of your child dressed as a princess. You can add a speech bubble welcome everyone to the kingdom.

Once inside the party, set up a dress up area for the kids. Here are some fun dress up items that are perfect for this party:
Set out a pink princess throne for a great photo op of all the kids. It will also make a great birthday present for your princess after her big day. If you'd like there is a blue prince throne as well, for photos of all of the boys at the party. Print digital pictures at the party and send them home for everyone in pastel photo table tents.

Balloon bouquets are great fun and work perfectly for such a fun party. Mix lil' princess 1st birthday Mylar balloons with an assortment of brightly colored magenta #1 balloons and white and pink polka dot balloons to create balloon bouquets for around the room. (Don't forget the helium!) Add more color and decor to your party space with princess wall decals, including a giant princess tiara and heart decals.

1st Birthday Princess Birthday Table and Menu
There are great princess party supplies to help get your party started from plates and napkins to cups and tablecovers. You can get princess party packages or get the items a la carte. They are really too cute to pass up! At each place set out a princess sippy cup or a prince sippy cup. Older kids will love the princess goblets. They can be filled with juice boxes stored on ice in a inflatable princess treasure chest cooler, which we think is too cute.

A princess crown piñata makes a great centerpiece for your princess birthday party. Surround it by more pastel photo table tents filled with pictures of the birthday girl.

Set a special seat for your little princess with a tulle highchair skirt. She can wear a 1st birthday princess crown and a princess bib! Be prepared with your camera to take lots of pictures! And, also be prepared for this area to get very messy with birthday cake!

Speaking of cake, a beautiful cake is of course in order for your princess theme party. Have a fun pink cake created from a local bakery and top if with a princess tiara and wand cake topper set. Or, if you want to go all out, hire a professional bakery to create a castle or a princess theme cake for your party.

1st Birthday Princess Party Games and Activities
The princess crown piñata you are using for a centerpiece is obviously always fun for an activity as well. Take turns swinging at several piñatas filled with candy! Divide the party into teams and have the teams compete to be the first to bust their piñata and retrieve the candy.

A fun arts and crafts activity for any toddlers and older kids is to decorate a princess crown. The crown decorating kit comes with foam crowns, spring cord, rhinestones, foam flowers and swirls, plus glue. The kids will love this! They'll also love to decorate and play in a coloring castle.

Here are some other fun Kids Birthday Party Games that the kids can play at the party.
