"A dream is a wish, your heart makes, when you’re fast asleep…" Oh how I love Cinderella. It was definitely my favorite as a little girl. So, when this little princess wished for a Cinderella Party for her 3rd birthday, I, her fairy godmother, delivered it! What little princess wouldn’t want her party wish granted?
I absolutely loved creating this princess’ dream party! I started with the traditional Cinderella color palette of light blue, gold, silver, and white. Shindigz has some AMAZING party supplies that will take your party from peasant girl to princess in no time!
I started by welcoming our fellow princesses and princes into the party with this Fairytale Castle Arch. It’s SO simple to assemble and it’s an awesome way to let your guests know that they are now entering the princess’ castle!
Just inside the party, we had a little favor station and a place for the princes and princesses to pick up their shield and sword, or their tiara and wand!
I knew I wanted a big impact for the backdrop of the main party table. This Fairytale Carriage Entrance was definitely an awesome choice! It’s such a beautiful backdrop to any princess party. But, for Cinderella it’s absolutely perfect! I lined the opening with Blue Iridescent Sparkle Fabric to look like the curtains of Cinderella’s coach. Princess Mollie loved it so much that she didn’t even want to leave the room! The best part of this standee is that you can keep it for play! How exciting to have your own carriage to pretend to ride around the kingdom!
Our main party table had a variety of Cinderella themed treats for the guests. We served cupcakes, fairy godmother wand Rice Krispie Treats, Cinderella Pumpkins (Clementines), String Cheese Brooms, Magic Fruit Wands, Princess sandwiches (peanut butter and jelly), and beautiful custom sugar cookies from SemiSweet Confections. Since this was a morning party, Mollie’s mom wanted the guests to be able to take home the cookies for later. So, I personalized these Fairtytale Castle Favor Bags for the kids to take home.
Around the corner, we set up our beautiful princess table for our guests to eat. I used more of the light blue polyester linens and tied each chair with a Gold Satin Chair Sash. To bring in the Cinderella theme, I used these Fairytale Dreams Centerpieces. Since it was a child’s party, I used a battery operated candle in the center.
Each child also had the opportunity to create their own princess crown or shield. For that table, we needed some extra decoration, so I hung this personalized Fairytale Sparkle Banner. I love how it turned out with the addition of the carriage art! On either side, I hung some simple, light blue paper lanterns to dress up the fireplace.
This party is fit for a queen, or a princess!
