Its inevitable that a princess party is in the future of most parents with a little girl. However with so many options, how do you choose which princess? How about Cinderella? Cinderella is by far the most well known Disney Princess. Her beautiful dress and happily ever after moment are the dreams of most little girls. Making those dreams a reality for your little princess is almost fairy dust easy.
In honor of a royal proclamation send a scroll invitation. Find scroll paper clipart online and print party information in the blank area of the scroll. At each corner add a different image.
Print the party information onto cardstock. Try to fit 2 invitations onto one piece of cardstock if possible. Leave a half inch of border around each individual invitation for cutting. Cut each invitation out carefully. Save as much of the border around each invitation as possible. Find Cinderella clip art online (preferably clip art that has no background image). Print the clip art on translucent or vellum paper, again printing 2 Cinderella images on each piece of vellum. Be sure to size the Cinderella clip art to cover the invitation an leaving a half inch border all around.
Carefully cut the printed Cinderella images the same size of the already cut invitations. The Cinderella images should lay on top the invitations and measure exactly. Using decal scissors cut a decorative border around both vellum and cardstock. Punch two small holes at the top of the invitation. Lace riboon through both holes from the bottom and tie a bow on the front. Use decorative ribbon or ribbon that matches party supplies. Your finished product should be an invitation of Cinderella on top that can be lifted to reveal the party information.
Cinderella party supplies are readily available at most party stores and online, but a little originality will set your royal affair apart from the rest. Cinderella’s signature colors are sky blue or ciel and white. Use these colors for crepe and balloon decor. Recreate the Clock Tower using a long piece of cardboard or posterboard. (Use online images or the movie for reference). Paint a clock face at the top and don’t forget to set the time to midnight.
Your princess will need her royal coach, so have a few pumpkins handy for transformation. If your party is during harvest time, visit the pumpkin patch and pick a few pumpkins to display in your party area. Try to get the pumpkins with the vines. Its not likely that your local grocery store won’t have pumpkins. If your party isn’t during harvest, your local craft store should have faux pumpkins and gourds. Jazz up with some fairy dust (fine glitter) for an extra touch.
