A "queen for the day" will need perfect princess party invitations to get her ladies-in-waiting to the celebration on time. Let everyone know the details by sending out invites that reflect the royal theme of the party.
Princess Invitation Themes
The type of princess party being hosted can help determine exactly what the party invitations will look like and how they are worded. Princess parties could be royal tea parties or even part of a little girls' slumber party. Consider the theme when choosing a party invitation.
- Princess Tea Party: Use bright pink, lavender and floral designs on pink teacups along with more formal wording.
- Princess Slumber Party: Find graphics featuring stick figures dressed as princesses and word the invite so everyone knows they are spending the night at the "castle".
- Queen for a Day: A throne or tiara-shaped card is the perfect way for a birthday girl to get the word out to her friends.
- Boy-Girl Princess Party: Include a knight on a horse or a prince figure on invitations that are going out to both genders.
- Costume Princess Party: Pick out an invitation that shows magnificent gowns and dresses; be sure to write on the invite that girls can come in costume or bring their favorite dress-up clothes with them.
- Character Princess Party: Little girls love the Disney Princesses and Barbie Princesses, so find invitations that reflect their favorite princess characters.
No matter what the actual princess theme is for the party itself, many elements are available for incorporating into the party invitations. Designs could include:
- Knights and swords
- Magic wands
