    What kind of food would you prepare for a home princess birthday party? Any activities you would recommend as well?

    The girls last birthday was a princess theme. We didn't really have games and such, just a big cookout. But I made a big castle cake for everyone and then I bought the girls each their favorite princess topper which I got off of ebay (Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty) and made them their own individual cake. If I would have had more time, I would have made each little girl a princess, but I ran out of time. Here's a link to a store that sells the signature cake toppers My link..they are super cute.

    I would do cupcakes, different color icing with crystal looking sprinkles. I am a huge fan of cupcakes because they are so easy to serve. Food I would serve finger sandwiches and fruit, stuff like that.

    My SIL did a princess themed party for her 4yo. She asked all the girls coming to wear their princess dresses. She served PB&J sandwiches cut into heart and star shapes with cookie cutters. She also served strawberry/pineapple/grape shish-kabobs. Cupcakes were pink with white frosting and different colored sugar crystal sprinkles. She put princess rings on top of each cupcake, which also served as a party favor. For the activity, she purchased beads and string, and let each girl make a bracelet. It was a really cute, easy party that didn't cost a lot. The girls all had a lot of fun.

    Love these ideas!!!! Maybe I'll do a mixture of PB & J and Ham & Cheese sandwiches and make them into that idea! And a jewelery making craft sounds like so much fun!!!

    The party will have a whole mix of people, family, adults and even boys. She wants an all girl party, but we have close friends with boys or siblings of sisters. Is there something I should do for them, especially the boys???

    never had a princess party yet, but want to when the girls are could make crowns for both the prince and princesses. They could decorate them themselves.

    We had a castle cake with Belle and Cinderella mini-dolls on top. For an activity I got a bunch of foam crowns (for the boys) and tiaras for the girls to decorate. They had everything at Michael's and I put the kids names on them with foam letters before they got there to be sure that everyone would get one. They also had a princess pinata.

    We served pink punch (or maybe pink lemonade?) from a punch bowl.
    For party favors, I tied lots of sparkly ribbons to the ends of those giant Pixie Stix. They looked sort of wand-like.

    For our non-girly girl, we actually called it a "castle party," and asked the kids to come dressed as a princess, knight or even a dragon. DH set up a maze in the yard and they all chased each other through it.

    For crafts, I cut craft foam into the shape of shields, and let them decorate their own. We had some pre-cut crowns, too.

    I collected a bunch of stuff that could be made into costumes and just set it in a box on the patio. I had strips of fabric for belts or sashes, lots of netting, homemade skirt/aprons, and pillowcases w/ arm & head holes cut out, that kind of thing.

    We just did a princess party, and I had a craft table set up where girls decorated a pink crown and the boys made a frog. I did the castle cake as well, with the Disney princesses around it.

    I like that option of decorating a frog too for the boys. I hope everyone gets dressed up, it'll look so cute for pictures!

    You could do a cupcake bar. The children could decorate their own cupcakes with sprinkles, candies, etc. You could have pick one color (i.e. pink) and have all different kinds of pink candies for them to choose from. Or you could do pastel colors. Another idea would be to let them decorate sugar cookies cut out like princesses or crowns. They have edible decorating pens that they could use as well as sprinkles, etc.

    As for activities they could decorate wands. You just need to wrap satin ribbon around some wooden dowels and then cut out foam shaped stars and hot glue it together at the end of the wand. You could also attach curling ribbon or star garland. The children could color the stars, put stickers on it, use glitter pens, etc. HTH!

    I know I have already responded but I will respond again... Maybe a party for the future

    Mine was not really Princess, but we did a Magical Tea Party this year. We hit Goodwill and bought a ton of China tea cups for all the little girls, inside I put M&Ms in a white bag with a string and a label on the outside that looked like a tea bag. The girls got to take the cups home at the end. We had a magician as well come for the Magical portion.

    I did different kind of sandwiches cut in flowers, bunnies, stars and circles (cut with cookie cutters). You do end up wasting alot of bread though when you do this. I also had fruit, veggies and chips. That was enough food.

    For their other favors I hit the dollar store that happened to have magic kits there so each kid got a magic kit.
