Here’s what Mindy had to say about planning this party- “My 3 year old daughter is such a girly girl who loves to wear dresses, sing and dance around, pretend to do makeup, carry purses, wear jewelry and of course she loves princesses. So, what was more fitting than a Pink Princess Ballerina Birthday Party full of sparkle and glitter??
The party took place at our local dance studio where the invitation and my daughter’s party outfit set the theme for the rest of the decorations. It was all about pink, sparkle, glitter, stars, tulle and of course being princesses and ballerinas!
At each place setting, the 3-5 year olds were served star shaped sandwiches, a fruit cup, pink popcorn, pink M&Ms and pink velvet cupcakes. All the girls had so much fun!”

Here’s what Anfal had to say about planning the party- “The inspiration for my daughter Zaina’s 4th Birthday was my husband’s vintage car along with the fact that Zaina wanted to be a princess that day. I mixed those two elements and came up with a pretty vintage princess party theme!
We invited around 25 girls between the ages of 2-8. I wanted the party to be so girly so I used a lot of bird cages, flowers, lace and ruffles in pastel colors. Vintage lights and balloons were also used for decorating the party venue.
There were several activities during the party:
1. A dress up area and a photo booth that we called ‘The Royal Photo Booth’ where the little girls would dress up in feathers, princess tiaras, jewelry and wands in addition to other props and signs. The photo booth was set by a local company called Bonker Box.
2. Create your own princess frame workshop. Each girl was given a ceramic tile of a princess with a variety of paints and glitter glues. Each girl would decorate her own princess tile and frame and take it home as a gift.
3. Face painting; My daughter and her friends were enchanted when they got their faces painted with their favorite characters and beautiful fairytale designs and stick-on jewels.
4. “A princess tattoo parlor” where girls got their temporary glitter tattoos on their hands and bodies.
5. Princess and the pea puppet show; this was the main event and it was performed by Puppet Kingdom from Kuwait.
While the girls were enjoying the birthday activities, a DJ was playing kids music in the background and the moms were comfortably seated around the activity stations and were served throughout the party with vintage-inspired food on passing trays.
The menu included:
1. Tiny tomato soup shots topped with mini cheese sammies
2. Date salad and strawberry salad in mini cups
3. Portobello mushroom pizzas in mini plates
4. French fries dipped in home-made ketchup in shot glasses
5. Roasted cherry tomato and cheese skewers
6. Pumpkin seed tartlets in mini plates
7. Grilled polenta topped with muhammara
8. Macaroni and cheese in mini glass jars
As for the little girls, each was given a vintage looking meal box with chicken nuggets and french fries inside along with home-made ketchup and orange juice.
For the dessert table, we used vintage metal cake stands and plates to display the desserts and the dessert menu included:
1. Flower mini cupcakes
2. Lace butter biscuits
3. Bird cage sugar cookies
4. Ruffles and lace cake pops
5. Rice crispy pops
6. Strawberry trifle jars
7. Mommy’s ruffle cake (chocolate flavor)
8. Shabby chic princess birthday cake (red velvet, rose water and vanilla ombre cake from the inside)
9. Salted pecan turtles in cones
11. Pistachio pie
12. Mini pecan bites
13. Jars filled with candies
14. Drinks (mint water, strawberry water, pomegranate and apple juice)
I have to mention that we also set a beautiful white tent in the garden and decorated it with lanterns, cushions and hanging tissue pompoms and we called it ‘the princess hangout area’ the girls enjoyed watching the puppet show while seated inside this beautiful tent.
We also placed a big cabinet right next to the dessert table and we called it ‘the magical cabinet’ it was filled with gifts for the girls and their moms. Each girl got a gift bag filled with makeup, glitter nail polish, hair accessories and bangles and were wrapped with a beautiful lace ribbon. They also got a vintage mini gum ball machine. The moms were not forgotten, each got a mini cake as well as a shabby chic gift box with chocolate bites inside.”

I usually have a few months to plan…that way I can collect items that I like and not have to spend a ton at once. For this party…that wasn’t the case. My sister-in-law didn’t want to make me do anything for my niece’s party because she knows how busy I am, but it just so happened that I was designing a princess printable set and she was planning to make a Rapunzel cake…so we definitely had to collaborate for another fantastic party! Also, we didn’t want to spend a lot of money, so I came up with the idea to have a ‘Princess Printable Party!’
My sister-in-law made the Red Velvet Cake with REAL Red Velvet icing (contrary to popular belief, it is NOT cream cheese icing). It looked so cute with the Rapunzel printable cut out!
I created 6 different princesses for this set: Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Beauty (from Beauty and the Beast), Frog Princess, Rapunzel, and Cinderella. This party is seriously a great idea for little girls. I created necklaces, bracelets, wands and crowns using my Fairy Tale Princess Printables…and they’re so fun! We also made tutus for the girls and they obviously had a BLAST pretending to be princesses.”
