Princess Party -2yr- Royal Punch
Lena in El Mirage
I was searching the web to find the perfect site for party ideas and I found It!!!!! This site was such a great help with all the Ideas and most of my own We Through- my 2 year old one of the best princess parties.
First I made the invitations on the computer and bought Princess paper and printed it out as a party flyer. It stated Your Princess Is Invited to a Royal Party Come Join and be our Royal Guest! For: Princess (NAME) Where: Royal Castle (ADDRESS) When: June 13th Time: 6:00 Pm (Before the clock strikes Midnight) R.S.V.P: King (NAME) (NUMBER) Be sure to wear your Finest Gown and prettiest crown! We will be making princess Tiaras and serving (LIST FOOD). See you there!
Now for the decorations We made it very affordable and Nice. The night before my husband carved a castle out of a washer/dryer box. He cut out little squares and spray painted them pink and the castle was spay painted white which came out more of a stone gray that worked great for the castle effect. I decorated the entrance with curtains made out of Tulle that I bought from wallmart (Don't get it cut by the yard too expensive If you go to the wedding isle They have a whole roll for 5 dollars) Than I wrote on some of the bricks WELCOME ROYAL GUEST! We Bought a red table cloth and ran It under the castle and along the sidewalk so the guest walked down the red carpet and under the castle to get to the front door. They loved it! This was also Great for pictures that we will later send on thank you cards!
Now inside I cleared the family room and set up a long table and chairs. I decorated It with a nice pink cloth and put play heels on top along with pink, purple, and white flowers (walmart's left over flowers. Buy it in a bag for 1.00) Crowns and blow horns. Now to walk into the room we hung streamers along the door way so they had to walk through the (curtains) in to the (Ballroom). Each chair I decorated with a big pink bow made from Tulle. Now note Tulle is a great thing to decorate with for a real princess party! Now the princess has to have a throne. We used a little pink chair and set it against the wall and decorated the wall with princess stickers and crowns. It made a pretty background for the pictures we took of her opening her presents.
Now for activities I sat all the princesses on the table and we made Tiarras with their names on It (walmart pack of 6 for 4.00 dollars) It was nice and easy. For games we played pass the poisen apple. We had all the princess sit in a circle and pass a real apple and each time the song stopped The player holding the apple had to go sit in the carriage. A fun way to say your out without hurting their lil' feelings. We also played pin the crown on the princess. What I did was take the princess off the fruit snack box and blew her up on my computer and printed it out I cut out crowns and taped one to her head so It was the exact fit Of the crowns I cut out with their names on It. We used a Boa to cover their eyes. The .99 cent store and dollar tree has Boas, Play heels, crowns, and pretty much almost everything you need to decorate which was nice and cheap. Now for my daughters costume she was a princess fairy. She had a plain white dress up dress that I decorated with big white and pink flowers. (same ones from walmart) I hot glued the flowers to a pink ribbon and tied it around her waist. I put fairy wings on her and put a big flower in the middle it was sooo cute.
For the party snacks we made fruit wands, Royal punch, Chips dip, and BBQ hotdogs. It was cute because we labled the table with the ROYAL PUNCH and FRUIT WANDS So the kids said we were having princess hot dogs so we called It that. Now the recipes. The Royal Punch is the best punch and makes a lot but will dissapear fast. This is the best punch I have ever tasted and is requested at every shower and wedding that takes place in our family and at our church. Makes for 40 INGREDIENTS 3 (3 ounce) packages fruit flavored gelatin mix 4 cups white sugar 13 cups boiling water 2 (46 fluid ounce) cans pineapple juice 1 (16 ounce) bottle lemon juice concentrate 3 (2 liter) bottles ginger ale combine gelatin and sugar. Stir in boiling water until mixture is dissolved. Stir in pineapple juice and lemon juice concentrate. Divide into 3 freezer bags and freeze for 15 hrs. To serve place 1 bag of gelatin mixture in punch bowl and chop into pieces. Pour in ginger ale.
For The fruit wands we used red grapes watermellon strawberries and star shapped marshmellows. We arranged them on a skewer stick and topped it with the marsmellow and stuck them all standing up in the carved out watermellon bowl. The cupcakes were fun and cute. I made crown cupcakes. I frosted the strawberry cupcakes with white cream cheese frosting pink sprinkles and topped it with half of a big marshmellow and a star shaped marshmellow pressed in the middle on top. It made a 5 point crown. I squezzed food colored frosting out of a baggie to put jewels on the points. The favor bags had princess fruit snacks jelly beans hair clips and a big pretty bow in each one that I made and glued to a clippie. They loved them. And that completes The funnest party my daughter will always remember. It was really affordable and Fun for all!!!!! "
