Princess For a Day:: A Royal Experience


Disclosure:: Thank you to Perfect Parties for sponsoring this post. All opinions expressed are my own.

princess partyIn envisioning her birthday party, my 5-year old wanted a princess party with all of her friends.  I wanted to give her a truly magical experience with all the frills, but knew my time was limited in what I could prepare. Perfect Parties saved my sanity and provided a stress-free planning, preparation, and party experience.  You might think this sounds too good to be true, after all, a fairy-godmother did arrive to decorate our house, but I assure you it was PERFECT.

Larissa and her team from Perfect Parties came to our house an hour before the party started.  They got to work transforming our dining room.  They brought chair covers, table cloths, sashes, fine china, silver, table decorations, napkins, platters, tea cart, individualized place settings, costumes, makeup, prizes, music and goodie bags.  In our study, they set up the princess changing room. As the guests arrived they picked from a wide array and sizes of princess costumes.  There were a few knight costumes available for the boys so they could join in on the fun. Light makeup was applied to the girls and they selected a few jewels to glitz up their outfit.

Our package was called Princess Tea Special, but there are many other themes and party packages available such as spa parties, pop star parties, pirate adventure, artist party, baby showers and custom parties.  If you have an idea, Perfect Parties can probably make it happen.

Instead of bouncing from task to task trying to entertain the children, I was able to enjoy the fun. Watching the twinkle in each of the girls’ eyes as they followed the Fairy Godmother’s directions made me smile. The other parents in attendance were equally impressed with the setup and flow of the party and many of them asked for additional details so they could keep Perfect Parties in mind for their next party.

I know this will be a party that my daughter will never forget! Thank you Perfect Parties for making this such a special day for our princess and her guests!

Amy is an "on the go momma" to two spunky and fun loving kids (ages 9 & 8). She came to Columbus to pursue a career in elementary education and decided this was home. She’s an avid traveler, yet can’t master the art of packing. Her philosophy is bring it all because you don’t know if you’re going to need it. If you ever decide to take a trip with her, don’t worry about bringing a camera because she’ll take enough photos of the experience that it will likely crash your hard drive. Before kids, you could find everything neatly organized and straight vacuum lines in her carpet, but these days she's not bothered with worrying about the small stuff. You can catch her belting out her favorite song, “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” and using her two left feet to bust a move with her family during their frequent impromptu dance parties. She loves living in such a family-friendly city!
