Once the party's in full swing, it's time for games, activities and photo ops galore.
When it comes to getting a princess party started, rely on a basket filled with baubles. A quick trip to the thrift store netted us costume jewelry and a bunch of little purses for next-to-nothing!
Don't forget to snap photos of the princess-of-honor and her royal guests in their regalia throughout the party.
Tiaras and wands from the dollar store are perfect for dress-up. Make sure you have a few extras on hand in case one (or two) breaks!
Together, an ornate frame and gauzey curtains make a gorgeous setting for photo ops.
These drapey canopy curtains, purchased for just $19 at IKEA, are perfect for twirling around in and playing peek-a-boo.
"Pin the Gem on the Crown," a riff on "Pin the Tail on the Donkey" is a lively activity that requires very few materials. Just trace the crown shape onto brown craft paper, cut it out and tape at the eye-level of your guests. Cut random gem shapes out of metallic or glittery paper, and allow the princesses to take turns "pinning."
Let your princesses party at their own pace. While it's great to have planned activities and games at-the-ready, letting them play freely can be just as fun.
