Pinatas are so much fun! and no one will be able to resist a unicorn shaped one 🙂 However, beating it up might be a bit dramatic in this case so we suggest attaching rainbow ribbons and letting your guests pull it open and be showered in rainbow colored treats and confetti.

2Alice in wonderland party photo booth props ideas

2. Wonderland Photo Backdrop

Second to creating the most enjoyable party for you and your guests, come creating a record of those memories for fun future perusing and sharing. There are dozens of fun photo opps that can be created around this theme, but our 2 favorites by far come straight out of the story:

  1. Falling down the rabbit hole: Top down photos are trendier than ever and in this case, they couldn’t be put to a better use than creating your own rabbit hole agains a black fabric. Just fill it up with props, have your guests lay flat in the center and have someone on a ladder or stool take the shot.
  2. White rabbits house: After Alice eats the magic cookie (or drinks the potion in the second movie) she grows too large for the white rabbits house, and from here is where we draw our inspiration to create the perfect photo opp! Use a big packing box to create a little rabbit house and then have your ‘Giant’ guests pose inside!

Both of these photos will delight all party goers, no matter their age and they will also serve as beautiful party favors to be cherished forever. You can post the photos online on the spot, or print them if you own a photo printer. You could also surprise your guests by handing them over a few days later 🙂

  • Wonderland scavenger hunt: Fill your event space with wonderland related treats and props such as clocks, sweets with ‘Eat Me’ labels, etc… And play on the ‘I’m late’ theme by giving your guests a limited amount of time to find as many treats as they can. This can also be a fun way to fill up those favor bags!
  • Mad Hatter Toss: Line up your players and see who can throw the hat closest or over a tea cup. This can also be another great DIY activity where guests get to customize their own hat beforehand.

PRINCESS PARTY GUIDE: Everything you need to throw the prettiest princess bash.

If your little princess is obsessed with everything rosey and sparkly, a royal bash in blush pink and gold is the way to go for her next birthday party.

We suggest staying away from the Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty or Elsa of the moment and instead making her the star of her own princess party by personalizing the decor with her name or even her profile shape for the cutest royal portrait.

Start by sending out our printable Princess Invitations and follow our guide below for tons of great decor, food & games/activity ideas!

The key to setting up the perfect princess party atmosphere is to create a sweet royal look by mixing blush pink elements with golden sparkly crowns and castles throughout, from the entrance sign to the party favors to be handed out at the end… Continue reading as we show you our favorite ideas!

1.Princess Party Backdrop

One of the most important elements in tying any party together is the backdrop. It will immediately bring guests attention towards your buffet table or play area, and it’s a must for cute photos that will last a lifetime. Luckily, it’s also one of the easiest things to make! Tissue paper will go a long way, as well as fabric, balloons and card board cutouts. We love these:

Pom-poms are a princess’ best friend. Here at WonderBash we believe that no party is complete without pom-poms; they are super easy to make, fill up the space quickly and add some serious whimsy.

4. Glitter Gallore

Modge-podge is girls best friend when it comes to working with glitter. Use it to decorate balloons, create big golden letters with her name one them, or visit your local dollar tree to stock up on cheap glass cups and candle holders that you can easily turn into serving stands by covering in glitter and gorilla-glueing on the bottom of a $1 glass plate:

5. Princess Profile Decor

Create a profile cutout of your child’s face following these simple steps, and use it to decorate:

  1. Take a photo of your child facing sideways in front of an empty wall
  2. Print the photo as large as you want to make the portrait.
  3. Cut off the area around the child’s face, and now you’re left with a stencil of the profile that you can use with any kind of paper to decorate! (Gold glitter paper is our fave)

6. Princess Pinata

No party is complete without a pinata, it’s just such a thrill for the little ones and not too hard to DIY! You can go for a simple but stunning crown shape, or try your hand at a castle or carriage… A golden number for the year your princess is turning would also be a great addition to the party.

PRINCESS PARTY FOOD

1.Princess Pink Potion

Magic and fairy tale princesses come hand in hand, and here’s your opportunity to add some extra wonder to the party with a mysterious and delicious pink punch. Pink lemonade, cranberry juice, strawberries and soda water would be a great combo 😉

2. Princess Sweets

Buy a crown shaped cookie mold and get a baking to create irresistible and super easy cookies. You can decorate them with pink fondant or the ever classic multi colored sprinkles to add a fun touch. Another great choice are white chocolate covered rice krispy treat pops, or princess cupcakes:

3. Pretty & Healthy Treats

Because princesses are also subject to tooth decay 😉 we suggest balancing out your decadent treats with some healthy ones such as sandwiches, fruits or mini yogurt & granola cups.

Fruit is as pretty as it’s delicious and healthy. We suggest sticking to the pink ones to match the theme, and arranging them in wand shapes.

For the sandwiches, PB&J or Ham & Cheese are both pink creations that will fill up the kids and keep them energize through all the party fun. We suggest using a cookie mold to shape your sandwiches, or making little wraps.

4. Princess Popcorn

Both little ones and big one’s alike tend to adore popcorn, and it’s so easy and cheap to make! Mix pink melted candy melts with the popped corn and make it extra fun & pretty by adding in pink m&m’s or cranberries, candy hearts, sprinkles, etc…

Smart tip: Pretty little pink popcorn bags can also make super sweet & cheap party favors that both kids & adults will love.
