After downloading and playing with the Royal Ball Augmented Reality 2.0 app, my Princess was more than ready to prepare for her Disney Princess Halloween party. She enjoyed playing games, while dressing up in virtual princess clothes, designing her party carriage, and dancing the night away with the Prince courtesy of the app. We were unable to find the in-store QR codes for enhanced play with the app, but we were still able to find several great Disney Princess toys and supplies for our party.
Party Like a Disney Princess
Since Princess was turning 7 a few days before Halloween, she wanted to have a Disney Princess Halloween/Birthday party. We invited over a handful of friends, pulled out all of our Princess dress up clothes, and prepped for her friends to come over. We made a fun tiara-shaped cake out of cupcakes and even made some deliciously simple Pink Princess Popcorn with three basic ingredients (see below).
As we waited for the popcorn to chill and the guests to arrived, we set out all of our fun Cinderella themed party supplies. We added the Disney Princess Halloween wall hanging Princess insisted on buying, as well as the foam jack-o-lantern craft we grabbed for the girls. The colors of the plates, napkins, and cups were bright and festive, plus Cinderella’s dress made our Princess’ dress stand out.
Speaking of dresses, Princess made her “grand entrance” down the stairs in one of her favorite ball gowns that my mom made her. But, after snapping a picture or two, and twirling around in her gown a few times, she was ready to get back into her Cinderella dress. Her Cinderella dress not only matched the party supplies, but she also had the matching shoes, tiara, and gloves. Oh, how she loved the gloves! Funny how those were her favorite part of the outfit.
Her friends played dress up with the dresses we found to share and they danced and danced to several fun songs before it was time to sing, “Happy Birthday.”
Singing the birthday song was a chore in itself. Every time poor Princess tried to blow out the candles, her little sister would get to them first! It took several tries to get Monkey to not blow off the candles so that Princess could have a try. But, she finally got them all blown out herself and her birthday wish was made.
Cupcakes were eaten and the girls were, once again, ready to move on to another activity. We pulled out the jack-o-lantern craft and they were able to buzz through it having fun with mixing up the faces and being creative with them.
Afterwards, there was one more tasty craft to put together: Disney Princess candy necklaces. The best part about beading your own necklace? Getting to eat the candy as you go. I am not sure how much actually made it onto their necks… but they had fun so that was all that mattered.
All in all, the girls had a great night. They finished out the night with a few family-fun games and some crazy dancing. We had a great time and I am sure it was Princess’ best party yet. It was her first party that she did not share with her sister and it was tailored for her. She is called “Princess” for a reason… and this party was the perfect way to highlight her adoration for the Disney Princesses.
