Many little girls dream of being a princess in a Disney movie. Grant them their dream for a day by throwing them a Disney princess party based on their favorite Disney movie! Here are 5 Disney princess party ideas that hopefully will inspire your next birthday party for your little princess.
Brave Birthday Party Ideas
The story of Brave’s heroine, Merida, is inspirational for any little girl who values her independence. It’s also a sweet story about the relationship of a mother and a daughter. Monica’s Brave-inspired 5th birthday party for her daughter Kira is largely based on the Highland Games scene in the movie, where the suitors compete for Merida’s hand only to be beaten by Merida herself. The party is so full of great ideas for a Brave-themed party, including:
- A celtic-themed invite (there’s a blank template for you to use).
- Lawn signs for every event made with computer paper, foam core, and metal yard stakes.
- An outdoor canopy decorated with banners and a family crest.
- Games based on the Highland Games, such as Log Carry, Colorful Archery, crown decorating, and more.
- Chicken legs for guests to nosh on.
- Yellow-green “Cauldron Punch” to resemble Merida’s potion.
- Bear paw cookies, with almond silvers as claws.
- A birthday cake decorated like a bulls eye.
- Cotton candy wisps as favors.
