When a young lady turns a year older, the occasion calls for a celebration that's nothing short of a personal fairy tale.

Princess Party Pointers

  • Ask guests to wear their fanciest dresses, then provide a box filled with extra dress-up items and costume jewelry for everyone to accessorize with.
  • For a magical touch, decorate with a string of white Christmas lights.
  • Use pink ribbon and a soft pillow to transform a seat at the party table into a throne for the birthday girl.

Things to Make

Glittery Slipper
This sparkly ball shoe, with all the party info printed on the lacy slip-in sock, really fits the bill for announcing a royal birthday celebration. For a template, cut a cardboard high-heel shape (about 3 1/2 inches high and 6 inches long with a wide ankle opening).

For each invitation, fold a 7-inch square of white paper in half so that the crease is at the bottom. Set the template atop it so that the shoe bottom is lined up on the crease and trace around it. Cut out the tracing and use a glue stick to join all of the edges except for the ankle opening. Apply glue to the surface of each shoe and sprinkle on glitter.

With scrap paper, lightly blot the glitter to secure it. From pink card stock, cut out an L-shaped crew sock (about 4 1/2 inches wide by 5 inches tall) to fit inside the shoe. Trace around it to create a sock for each invitation.

For a finishing touch, glue lace to the top of each sock, and they're ready to deliver.

Terrific Tiaras
Little princesses will love decorating their own party crowns.
