In addition to basic Sofia the First party supplies, decorations and paper goods, you may want to consider purchasing, borrowing or renting the following items for your Disney Princess party:

  • Tiaras and princess costumes
  • Toy fairies and dolls
  • A castle dollhouse
  • A DIY carriage for photos and playtime
  • Costume jewelry
  • Sofia the First books or DVDs
Looking for a quick and easy way to drum up excitement for your event? Try our invitations which can be printed to include your child's name and all of the party details! For a unique touch, you can make your own invitations. This can be a fun activity to get you and your child excited for your  party! Here are some ideas:
  • Attach a card-style invitation to a personalized favor such as a bookmark or luggage tag.
  • Include stickers or confetti with your invitations. Seal the envelopes with a personalized sticker printed with your information.
  • Create a card-style invitation using fake jewels and glitter. Write your party details in a gold, flowing script to match a royal look.
  • Write your party details on the back of a paper tiara. Guests can then bring the tiara party hat with them to your celebration to wear at the event.
  • Let your guests know if you would like them to dress up like their favorite character from Sofia the First.

Sofia the First Decorating & Food

The right decorations can make all the difference at your Disney Sofia the First party! Whether you would like to use a Disney princess theme or opt for fairy decor, you'll find great Sofia the First decoration ideas below:

  • Create a castle on your wall using cut craft paper. Cut out the shape of a castle from butcher paper and hang it on the wall to create a mural. Set your table to look like a fairytale feast!
  • Instead of paper plates and cups, use tea cups and other fun china sets. A tea party is the perfect princess setup. For younger guests, make sure you use plastic rather than fragile tea sets.
  • Hang posters and banners of this little Disney Princess around your party space.
