We knew when we began to plan a first birthday party for Jenna it would be a Princess Sofia party. She loves that show and will sometimes sit quietly for up to 10 minutes watching it. It’s the perfect way to get her to nap when she is tired but doesn’t want to sit still. We owe Princess Sofia big time. Once we decided the theme for the party, we needed decor and party favors. I hope these Princess Sofia Birthday party ideas help to inspire you to create your own perfect Princess Birthday Party. The colors can easily be changed to match any Disney princess or to make a generic princess party.
Princess Sophia Birthday Party Ideas:
I started by creating Princess Sofia Bubble Party favors, along with Princess Gem Favors using supplies I found at Paper Mart, along with a can of spray paint and some bubbles. (You can get the complete instructions in the link at the bottom of the post.)
Next, I created a clothesline by stringing a piece of cord between the columns on my pergola. I added “Princess dresses” I had filled with a few pieces of leftover Easter candy. I spray painted clothespins I had purchased at the dollar store with the purple spray paint leftover from the bubble favors. Then I hung the dresses along the clothesline. Guests were encouraged to remove a dress from the clothesline before leaving to take home with them. (This would also be an adorable touch for a girl baby shower.)
I created table markers for our snacks using 2″ Round Clear PVC sided Tin Cans filled with shredded purple confetti and a pink lollipop. I added Pink Pearl Trimmed linen ribbon around the sides for contrast. On each lollipop, I added a sticker telling the name of the dish.
For our table, I used purple plates, cups, and utensils. This made the table festive for guests of all ages without being overwhelmingly Princess themed.
Although it is hard to see because the party was held during the day, I made “Princess Fairy lights” using 5″ Round Clear PVC sided Tin Cans. I added purple tissue paper inside of each can, along with White L.E.D. Light garlands. (This would also make great under the sea themed lights by substituting blue tissue paper.)
Our guests “oohed” and “awwed” over the decor and some even told me they were “stealing your ideas for our own parties.” I count that as a success. The decor could easily be used for other themed parties if you left out the extra Princess Sofia themed touches.
I received the supplies to make these crafts, along with the Princess Sofia Bubbles from Paper Mart. They’re a family-owned business, founded in 1921, that offers 26,000 items including party, floral, and craft supplies. They also have gift wrap, boxes, and more. Even better, they ship the same day you place your order! Check out their low price guarantee because who doesn’t like to save money?
