About this Site

If this is the first page you've landed on, let me give you a quick introduction. I'm Matt James, a professional party planner, and the purpose of this site is to show you the most creative way you can use regular, shop-bought party supplies that can be found in most stores. Not everyone has the craft skills of Martha Stewart or the time to spend several days with a glue gun making things from scratch. It's fine to use shop-bought decorations and supplies—as long as you choose them carefully and know the best way to put them all together. So I'll share a few simple tips and trade secrets that anyone can use to add some creative touches to your party—whatever your budget.

Don't forget to check out my other page of Princess Party Ideas—with tips for invitations, food & drink, decorations, and styling.

Looking for ideas for birthday princess party games and activities for kids? Below is a list of suggestions.

Coloring activities are a great way to calm things down towards the end of your birthday princess party games, but they're also really useful for the beginning of the party to keep everyone entertained while waiting for all the guests to arrive. There are lots of basic coloring activities, such as this 3D coloring activity or this color-in jumbo jigsaw, or there are these fun color your own fairy princess capes. All from supplier 3.

Finally, there are also some more unusual coloring based princess party games such as these 'color you own castle' or 'color your own carriage' which can also be used as part of your birthday party decorations. See supplier 3 for these.

Treasure Hunt

Create a simple treasure hunt as part of your princess party games by having everyone search for hidden 'glass' slippers from supplier 1 or 2.

Kiss the Frog

This 'kiss the fog' game from supplier 5 is really cute - and a bargain at just $2! A variation of Pin the Tail on the Donkey which has been adapted to make it perfect for princess party games. Just take turns blindfolding each princess, spinning them around, then seeing if they can stick the pink lips on the mouth of the frog. Although I can't guarantee he'll turn into a prince if they are successful!

Decorate Your Own Tiara

Have all the kids decorate their own tiaras as part of the princess party games. This tiara craft kit from supplier 2 or 8 comes with tiaras and adhesive 'jewels' so they can personalize their tiara.

Princess Training

Hold 'princess training' workshops where you teach the kid's table manners, etiquette lessons and how to walk like a lady by practising with books on their heads. If it's a costume birthday party, round off the princess pampering and training with a 'princess parade' with prizes or award ribbons for those with perfect poise, best tiara, most regal wave, etc.

You can get various princess themed awards ribbons and sashes to give out (below left and center) or pick up a 12 pack of general 'Winner' awards ribbons (below right) and let somebody be the winner in each category. See supplier 3 for awards ribbons.
