I don’t think I’ve mentioned the party invitations. There was no need to create my own when I was able to purchase them at the store. I thought I was just getting invitations when I purchased them, but it turns out that they come with thank you postcards too! Writing those thank you notes is going to be super easy now!
I did create a couple of printables to help with our princess party. I created some thank you tags that I could attach to the goodie bags.
When I was looking through all the party goods in the aisle, I loved these cups. I thought it would be fun to send one home with each of the children. My daughter picked out the mega mix pack with all the party goodies and I decided the cup would be a perfect “goodie bag”. Now again, I didn’t want to have to purchase all the toys and candy in the store to fill these cups so I used a piece of crumpled tissue paper in the bottom of the cups to fill it up. Then I added the princess goodies to the cup.
I wanted to wrap them with clear cellophane but I didn’t have any. I also couldn’t find any at the store. When I was getting ready to leave, I passed the floral section and noticed the plastic bags that you use to put your bunch of fresh flowers in. Then it hit me! I could use those bags for my wrapping. I trimmed off the tops and wrapped some twine around them. I added a cute princess wand and a thank you tag. I set one at each seat around the table for the party princesses.

I also created more princess tags to use as cupcake toppers or food toppers. I used a 2.5 inch scalloped circle cutter to punch these out. Then I glued them to paper straws.
I bought a cake from the bakery. I ordered a double layer cake with plain white buttercream. I wanted to decorate it myself. I used one of the foil crowns from the swirl decorations and added toothpicks to the back with some hot glue and stuck the crown in the back. I then stuck some of the princess printables in the cake as well. I used these printables in some of the food too. I also stuck a couple on the drink dispenser.
They can really be used anywhere. You can download the princess tags using the link below. All printables are for personal use only.
We had a great afternoon being princesses and celebrating the birthday girl!
I was so happy to throw my daughter a party she was excited about. And it was really nice that I could get everything that I needed in one place.
Do you have a favorite birthday memory? Or maybe a favorite birthday theme from a party you’ve thrown? I would love to hear it!
