As a child of the 80s and 90s, Disney Princesses will always be close to my heart. I'm not bragging, but I know every word to every Disney Princess theme. So, when I got the opportunity to style this Disney princess party, I jumped on it! I'm a boy mom, so I love the chance to style a girly party every once in a while! There is not nearly enough pink in my house!
I started by picking up some American Greetings Disney Princess party supplies at Wal-Mart. Disney Princesses must be a very popular theme! You could tell it was a good seller!  
So, today I am going to show you how to throw your own Disney Princess party on a budget!

I picked up the room transformation kit and I used it as the inspiration for my backdrop. These three stained glass windows with Belle, Rapunzel, and Cinderella themes made the perfect backdrop for my party. To make them look like they were in a princess castle, I painted up this stone pattern really quickly on some white butcher paper. I used chalk paint and acrylic paint and free-handed the design. 
On each side, I put some perfectly Aurora-pink sateen that I picked up at the fabric store, to make it look like curtains surrounding the castle walls. 
I used two of the plastic tablecloths, layered on top of each other to make them reach the floor. I love this pretty pink design and the bottom is scalloped, which gives it an extra cute detail!

On the front of the table, I used some of the princess hearts from the room transformation kit, punched holes in them, and then threaded them with clear lacing to make a pretty banner for the front of the table. I don't know about you, but Cinderella and Belle are my favorite. 

I also added these cute little DIY magic wand starbursts using some of the pink and purple wands. I added them, along with some bracelet favors onto a cardboard circle that I painted pink. I hot glued them down to make them secure. 

For our sweets selection, I chose each item to coincide with one of the princesses. 

Rapunzels Braids (yellow Twizzlers)

Cinderella's Pumpkins (Mellowcreme Pumpkins)

 The Grey Stuff from the "Be Our Guest" song. "Try the Grey Stuff, it's delicious!" 
(Oreo pudding mixed with Cool Whip). 
This is so delicious and so easy! I seriously had to make my husband his own batch!

Snow White's Apples (non-poisonous!) 
I used these little wands as the stick and then dipped the miniature apples into some pink melting chocolate. 

Aurora's Cupcakes (strawberry cupcakes). 
I used these little "princess diaries" from the favor packets as cupcake toppers. 

And, of course the princess cake! I made this cute little pink cake at home and then added pink sugar and purple sprinkles. To dress it up, I added a tiara and a cute candelabra topper!

I adore these plates. How pretty are they? Every little girl will love them!

There is a dinner and a dessert version, with different princesses on each.  

 I think any little girl would love this party! 
I know I do! 

I hope this gives you some fun ideas on how to throw your own Disney Princess party!
