Disney Princess 1st Birthday Party Decorations & Food Ideas

Start off your baby princess party on the right foot with Disney Princess decorations. Pick out princess balloons, hangers, and centerpieces

  • Turn your home into a fairytale castle! Cut out towers from butcher paper and hang pennant banners between them. Use knight's shields and other medieval props to match a princess decoration theme.
  • Have Disney Princess costumes available for your guests to wear at the party. Set up a photo booth full of props and accessories and let friends and family members pose together. You can even get some photos with the birthday girl in a princess dress.
  • Set out a guest book to let guests leave a heartfelt message. Look back at all the nice things your friends and family had to say once your child grows up a bit more.
  • Hang strips of tulle from the corners of your party room to create a flowing canopy. Tissue paper balls and other light decor makes for a frilly and fun ambiance.
  • Get back to basics with first birthday balloons, banners, and centerpieces.

Disney Princess Party Decorations

Supply your guests with foods that can be enjoyed by adults and kids alike. You can set a table that looks like it was prepared by a royal chef with these first birthday Disney Princess party food ideas:

  • Bake cute cake pops in pink and purple frosting. Other color matching snacks will add a touch of elegance to your event.
  • If your party will be attended mostly by adults, consider a swanky spread of finger sandwiches, tea, juice, and other tea party foods. Dainty and delicate baked goods and snacks are great for an older guest list.
  • Bake your birthday cake in the shape of a castle. Use frosted ice cream cones to create four towers at the corners of a sheet cake. Decorate with candies and flag toothpicks to complete the look.
  • Create chocolate dipped strawberries that look like Belle's rose. Dip the fruit in colored pink chocolate and drizzle a swirl on the end. Serve them at the end of a long stick to create the stem.
  • Use individual Disney Princesses as inspiration for different snacks. Make egg rolls and dumplings inspired by Mulan, gumbo and rice for Tiana, Snowflake cookies for Elsa and Anna, or apple pie for Snow White. Use your imagination to come up with even more princess party foods.
