Little girls love princess tea parties and in today’s economy, many moms are opting to host their little princess’s tea party at home instead of paying hundreds of dollars for an off-site party venue. Here we show you how, by adding just a few simple touches, you can transform your dining or living room into a Princess Tea Party that fits like a glass slipper!
Princess Tea Party Decorating Tips
Create instant princess magic by following these tried-and-true party tips! Sprinkle silk flower petals over the table cloth to give it an enchanted feel. Wrap small, white lights in tulle or inexpensive white sheers to add a soft, sparkling backdrop. Wind strings of silk or plastic ivy and/or flowers around a pretty pink tea pot, chairs and table legs to create dressed-up feeling in the room.
If you’re game, dress up like a queen or princess yourself! Dad or big brothers can put on a tux or suit and become a waiter for the day to help out.

Princess Tea Party Activities
Have a princess scavenger hunt using organza bags – prepare a list of “treasure” to find (lip gloss, necklaces, wands, etc.) TIP: instruct each child to pick up only one of each item to avoid tears. When it’s time to sing the birthday song, have the guests encircle the birthday princess and sing Happy Birthday while they shower her with flower petals (real or silk). Paint a large, cardboard box into a princess castle – the girls will love crawling inside through a cutout doorway! Paint the outside of your box with a rectangular sponge dipped in gray paint in scattered rows to mimic castle block walls…fill in with black paint…easy! Adorn the “castle” with glued-on silk flowers, ivy, etc. if desired. Take pictures of the girls peeking out for beautiful princess pictures to send to each guest!
Extra Princess Tea Party Tips
Don’t overschedule your party – tired girls equals whining and no fun. The rule of thumb is not more than 1.5 hours for small children, and no more than 2 hours for 5 and up. One or two activities plus tea time and gift opening is more than ample. Have the birthday girl sit in a special “Princess Chair” (dining room chair decorated with tulle bows) and each guest can present her gift one at a time. Develop photos right after the party and send each child a special thank you note with photos taken at the party, like the enchanted castle photo, tea party dining, etc.
