Princess Party Ideas

When it came time to plan my daughter’s 4th birthday party, I knew that she would love the idea of a princess party. The inspiration for our princess party ideas all started with one of our newest invitation designs, A Princess Like Me Kids Birthday Invitations. This girl’s birthday invitation was great because I could customize the dress, hair, skin and background color on the card to look like my daughter.

What princess party would be complete without a castle? We knew it was a must-have, so my sister and I worked to collect boxes, stacked and decorated them to create a large castle that was placed on the front porch. We painted the castle white and draped a flag banner across the top, made from paint swatches. The girls entered the castle by walking through our front door!

For party activities, the girls made their own princess necklaces out of jewel-colored beads, and played a spin on the classic birthday game, ‘Pin the Lips on the Frog.’

The final decorative challenge was to create an ice cream stand. Thanks to my handy brother-in-law, we were able to create one out of a wood pallet, and draped a lace tablecloth over the top to create a canopy. A Princess Like Me Kids Party Decorations were used to create a banner that we hung across the top. We also used them as coasters for the ice cream toppings, which were all color-coordinated to match, of course!

Your guests may not believe it, but you can easily make this fun wood party sign without lifting a hammer, nail or saw! Who’s the sneaky ninja now?! The secret is using pre-cut garden stakes and a glue gun for assembly. The stakes come with a point, but when glued side-by-side they create a jagged pattern reminiscent of the cool, die-cut edge on the Ninja Party Invitation. (See the full DIY post here.)

Top 5 Kids Birthday Cake Ideas

At Pear Tree I’m known as the team “cake lady,” and working here while running a baking business in my free time certainly has its advantages. I hear what the birthday party themes are before anyone else, I can look at pictures of cakes for hours, and I even get to write blog posts about cakes! Cakes (and cupcakes) are my thing. (The team has a love/hate relationship with me, though, because I bring in extra cupcakes all the time.) I decided that a blog post on kids birthday cake ideas would give me an excuse to bake, and help you with inspiration for your child’s upcoming birthday party!

1. Monster Theme
In case you haven’t noticed, monster parties are all the rage right now! Personally, these are probably my favorite cakes to make. It really doesn’t get much cuter than this. They are easier to make than you think. Just use Tip #234 to cover the cake, making the “fur” longer or shorter, depending on the type of monster you want to create. Choose from our monster kids birthday invitations to match the cake.

2. Barbie and Princess Theme
Barbie cakes have forever been a hit with little girls. I remember having them for my own birthday parties. Bake the cake in an oven-proof bowl and place it upside down on plate to frost. Cut a hole to set the Barbie in, so that the cake forms the skirt of her dress. For the princess castle cake use ice cream cones to create the towers and candy to decorate! We have an assortment of princess kids birthday invitations for whichever cake you choose.
