My Sofia the First started getting into Sofia the First Disney Princess right after her second birthday. We have the book, her princess gowns and accessories, the movies and shows. It was only fitting that I start planning her 3rd birthday after her new favorite character!
Instead of your traditional princess party, I made it into a princess and prince party, which allowed us to include all of Sofia’s close friends.
Below is the set up outside for Sofia’s Royal Guests! We set the table with Sofia The First dinnerware and fine linen and added a castle tent that resembled an outdoor scene in Sofia The First. While the main color is purple in Sofia the First’s gown, my Sofia the First loves the color pink and I wanted to incorporate that in the event design.
We also had a colorful bounce house castle that kept Sofia’s royal guests bouncing with joy through the party!
It wouldn’t be a royal celebration without princess tiaras and prince crowns! We set up a arts and craft table on the deck for the kids to decorate their favorite princess tiara, prince crown, sword or shield.
For Sofia’s Royal Menu we served some of her favorites such as Crown PB&J, Fairy Sushi aka turkey rolls, Prince BBQ Sliders, Fruit Wands, Sparkling Pink Lemonade, Fairy Tale Cupcakes, and Castle Cookies.
In keeping with the pink and purple theme, I wanted the buffet table to be whimsical and not too fancy or grown up.
A delicate light rose floral arrangement on top of a gold and crystal stand served as our centerpiece flanked by fairy wand arrangements. I had started to make topiary arrangements, but the fairy wand felt more whimsical and kept with our princess theme. Purple tulle with sparkles was used for the tutu effect on the edge of the table and pink tulle draped over the white linen.
Other décor items came from Sofia’s toy collection with Sofia The First figurine dolls, Sofia the first accessories like the princess shoes pair of gloves, and magic wand. I found the festive fairy wands at Target months ago and used them as part of the display and party favors for Sofia’s royal guests.
You can’t have enough pink! Pink garland was hung above the main food buffet and outside on the deck.
Pink pom poms were hung over the drink and appetizer station.
From the looks of things the Fairy Tale Cupcakes were by far the favorite item!
It was a fun party to plan and even more fun being a part of the celebration!
