Princess Party DIY Crowns

FIVE. That is how old my little Bear is now. With each passing year, I scratch my head, asking myself, where did time go? My sweet little baby is now a kindergartner who loves dance, dolls and princesses. When I asked her why type of birthday party she’d like this year, she said Frozen, but we already checked off that box last year when Elsa came to visit, so for number 5, I asked myself how we could top that. Yep – ALL Disney Princesses.

No, no, no. Belle, Aurora, and Cinderella didn’t come to her party this year (I think my mom group thought I was crazy for inviting Elsa last year), but we went with the full princess theme — the girls dressed up as their favorite princess (of course Bear was Belle – click here for her costume that was incredibly reasonably priced!), we played princess games (Rapunzel’s “tangled” hair wrap with yellow crepe paper), and made princess crowns.

I found this awesome foam princess crown kit from Oriental Trading Company that was easy-peasy (planning a birthday party is stressful enough, so anything that can simplify the party details gets a high-five in my book).

I added some Disney Princess stickers and markers to little pails that I had on hand (originally from Bear’s nursery) and set up decorating stations at the tables. The girls (and little brother) had a blast decorating their own crown with stickers and their own names.

After craft time was over, we had snacks and a decadent princess cake. I also picked up some cookies from my favorite local bakery. The party decorations and tableware also came from Oriental Trading Company (they have a great princess selection!).

Bear had a dream-come-true fifth birthday with her family and friends. I love seeing her smile — she gets so excited when she’s with her little friends. Until next year…
