We are excited to offer all of The Swan Princess party printables for you to host your OWN party, starting with the Swan Princess invitation!

The girls LOVED wearing the adorable sparkly crown that comes inside the DVD + Digital Ultraviolet packaging!

This party was a little girls’ dream! They got to dress up in gorgeous tutus, tanks and hair accessories from Strawberrie Rose, enjoy a tea party with fun activities (more on that later this week!), as well as enjoy yummy sweets and treats.  Our little models were just SO precious!

Every Princess Party needs a pretty cake!  We used a store bought white cake (for under $15!) and dressed it up with a printable crown from the printable collection, and we lined the base with macaron shells and sixlets from Candy Galaxy.

Even cupcakes like to get dressed for the occasion!  We topped them with a macaron embellished with a pink bow, and wrapped it with a printable cupcake wrapper from our Swan Princess Collection.

Our printables also include a tea cup handle design so that you can turn any cup or dish into a teacup, perfect for a Swan Princess Tea Party!  We created Ombre Mousse Tea Cups by using layered pink colored mousse in different shades in a glass cup, and topped it with a printable cupcake topper.  It looked so pretty and royal and the kids LOVED it!

Sugary Sweet Cupcakes & Treats made the most gorgeous sugar cookies for the occasion.  She designed swan cookies, castle cookies and more!

We displayed adorable pink polka dot white chocolate oreos from Sweeties by Kim and added a printable party flag for detail.

My little Pierson is rocking the most handsome tie from Tadpole and Lily!  He loves The Swan Princess movies and was thrilled to be included! (This movie is totally great for boys and girls!)

The decor was so simple to display! We will show you how to make these whimsical sparkly tissue flowers later this week, too!  The pink honeycomb balls are from Shop Sweet Lulu and tied in perfectly with the gorgeous pink tones from the party.

Adria and I always love coming up with fun new desserts, so for The Swan Princess party, we decided to create a Royal Princess Cookie CastleWe will share the tutorial later this week!  It was so simple and looked so elegant!

All of The Swan Princess printables helped dress up the entire room, and are so easy to use.

Yellow Ombre marshmallows from Madyson’s Marshmallows were stacked and we put cute little party flags in them to add detail.

The gorgeous pink ruffled tablecloth was from Candy Crush Events and helped make the low table feel more formal and royal.

Place settings were set up to look very royal and had printable place mats that showed the girls how to set a proper table. (More on that later this week, too!)

We lined the precious little kids tea party set with party paper from Smashcake & Co.  It helped add a pop of color and was adorable!  We also used the party paper to line our cookie plate on the dessert table. It is a wonderful way to add color to your basic white platters!

The Princess Place Setting Placemat was a huge hit with the kids! They loved learning about the proper way to set the table.

Each girl also had an adorable crown topped favor box, which is also included in the printables collection.

Great Stitch embroidered small white linen napkins with the kids’ initials on them.  It looked so pretty at the place settings and felt more “royal” than typical paper napkins.

We used the printable drink wraps on plastic drink bottles with party flag adorned paper straws (from Smash Cake & Co) to serve strawberry milk.

Our little princesses had to go home with something pretty, so we sent them home with memorable favors. Nashville Wraps has the most precious pink favor boxes that look like little purses.  We put shred inside with some of the Sweeties by Kim cookies and sugar cookies from Sugary Sweet Cupcakes and Treats.  We finished it off with a printable favor tag.
