A (Budget) Princess Birthday Party

I am not a mama who is in to spending big time money on a birthday party, but I do love to throw a fun shin dig! Ella's birthday is in July. This past January I ran in to a deal where I could get 75% off the cost of a real live princess for a birthday party. It was so inexpensive that I couldn't pass.

The princess was from Fairytale Couture and every adult at the party agreed that she was fabulous! I can't say enough good things about this company. The normal prices are more than I like to spend for a birthday party, but I think it's worth the cost. My daughter and her friends had an hour of very personalized time with a real live princess. They were ELATED! The princess told a story, sang songs, danced with them and even did some face painting (she does other activities as well -- you can choose what you want).

Because I spent all of my budget on the princess, I made homemade cupcakes and stuck to simple decorations I had around the house. I had picked up plates, napkins, and cups after Valentine's Day (pink always goes over!). Ella is already asking for Cinderella to come next year and it was worth cutting back everywhere else to be able afford a real live princess.

(Even the "big" girls had fun!)

What a lucky little girl, I would have died if a princess came to one of my birthdays! Yay!

Wow! I love princess themed parties since my childhood. Will throw my niece a princess theme party at one of kid’s friendly New York venues. Will use some of these ideas. Will take my friend’s help too as she is a professional planner.
