I did one of these with my daughter a few years ago I purchased poster board and made each girl a cone shaped hat. then they got to decorate it with tuile, (to make that flowing tassel thing fromthe top) and dollar store gems, glitter etc. You could cut out paper crowns and do the same thing. Craft foam works well for the crowns. this was the "craft" component of the party.
I also got a plain white paper table cloth and traced all the Disney Princesses from a colouring book -- one at each person's place at the table. They could colour this while they were sitting there (ie waiting for luncheon).
I made a Snow White cake (using a bowl and half a Barbie doll). Party favours are fun and sometimes to can get tiarras for each girl as well. But not necessary if you make the hats.
I think we had fancy sandwiches (just cut the crusts off your favourite ones) and we had pretty punch in tea cups. I think I got nice cups from my local thrift store, washed them and then let each girl take their cup home after I filled them with candy. have fun!
When my daughter turned five, I did a princess tea party. I went to Dollar store and got each girl a tea cup w/saucer. (use punch) I also purchased a plastic crown for each girl. I don't like spending money on things I know they will break or lose, so I purchased a small inexpensive flowering plant as a take home goody. I was shocked to see how excited the girls were when I told them to pick out the one they wanted. I should say, they make great center piece for party! We did homemade games like place the jewel on the crown,( just like pin the tail on donkey) simple sandwhiches and veggie sticks for lunch. Just keep it short and sweet!
My little princess is turning 4, and she wants a princess party. Anyone have any suggestions? As I am not that great of a party planner I can use all the help I can get. I have looked every where for boas and they are expensive, anyone know of whenre to get them any cheaper?
Thanks for any advice. Leanne
Hope it helps. Cyndy
I am starting to plan my daughter's 4th Birthday. She wants to invite a few friends from school and she wants to have a princess theme. Does anyone have any cute, cheap ideas for her party? I was hoping to only spend about $30 and I was planning on inviting about 7 girls (I know that seems a lot but we will be having her party in the summer and figured only about half will show up!). Thank you!

I bought princess tiaras and cheap plastic play jewelry for all the girls. I gave each girl a tiara, but for the other jewelry I incorporated it into a game of musical chairs. I put a necklace or bracelet on each chair, and whichever chair the girls sat on, they got to put on the jewelry.
I also made a "pin the kiss on the frog" game. I made a large frog out of green paper, and made little lips out of red paper. The girls stuck the lips on the frog just like you would in pin the tail on the donkey. We also played whisper down the alley and I had a pinata shaped like a crown.
I made a birthday cake shaped like a castle that was a big hit. I made one large square cake, and one smaller square cake. I put the small one in the center of the large one and iced them. Then I took 5 sugar-cones and iced the outside of the cone and covered them in sparkly sprinkles. I turned the cones upside down and put one on each corner of the large cake, and one in the center of the small cake. I then took toothpicks and some paper and made tiny flags, and stuck them into the tips of the ice-cream cones. Then I just sprinkled pink sparkly sugar all over the cake and added a few windows and doors with brown icing, and it looked great! All the moms were amazed, but it was actually really easy.
A few extra things I did (but were rather pricey) were, I hired a woman who came to the party dressed as Cinderella and did magic tricks ($150.00), and I purchased a big blow-up castle that had tunnels and rooms for the kids to crawl through ($80.00). (07/18/2007)
