Olivia’s third birthday is fast approaching, and following our super successful Moana party last year, I wanted to throw another amazing Disney-themed party for her this year!
However, this year, it’s not just the one film she’s into. She’s into literally ANY princess movie. She loves Belle, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Jasmine, Cinderella and Merida most of all.
I’m also trying to be a lot more conscious of the plastic waste we are producing as a family – so my party-planning tips and ideas this year are also as environmentally sustainable as possible!
So, here is my round up of the best eco-friendly, Disney Princess party ideas I’ve found across the internet!!!
1. Disney Princess Bunting
This is perfect for our party! Olivia doesn’t have one favourite princess this year, so bunting that suits every princess is ideal! Plus, we can make these ourselves using our extensive coloured card and glitter resources and have lots of fun making them.
2. Princess Purse Party Favours
Amazing ideas for party favours and all made with a hot glue gun – no sewing required?! I’m inspired to go on and make Beast, Olaf, Flounder and Flynn Rider ones too! But maybe we’ll see how the princess ones go first of all!
3. Princess Themed Fruity Treats
These are perfect healthy but fun treats for any princess party! Add in Snow White’s Poison Apples, and you have yourself a tasty princess fruit salad ready to go! These ideas are fab as they will take minimal preparation time, too.
You will probably need tableware for your party food, and definitely some dinglehoppers!
This is a simple yet brilliant idea in keeping with the Disney theme for the party, and can be made even better by using disposable cutlery made from bamboo, which can be easily composted post-party! I found a pack of 100 on Amazon for £3.46, so not only will they last you for this party but you will have plenty spare for next time around, too.
5. Pin the nose on Flynn Rider!
This is a brilliant idea for a party game, and better than your typical ‘pin the tiara on the princess’! Another great alternative is to ‘pin the kiss on the frog’ if you have a little one that loves Tiana!
6. Fairytale Land Signposts!
Use up some of your old cardboard from shoeboxes (or the endless amounts of packaging that the birthday presents will no doubt arrive in!) to make fairytale land signposts! You can include places from any of the classic Disney films – Pride Rock, The Enchanted Forest, ‘Little Town’, The Wall of China, Agraba etc. etc…
7. Princess Wardrobe Swap
As you can see, little Olivia has quite the collection of princess dresses!
This was so much fun at Olivia’s party! As she has virtually every princess dress that exists, her party consisted of a bit of a wardrobe swap and change for all of the little ones to swap around. It meant QUITE a few wardrobe changes throughout a 2 hour period, but they had loads of fun sharing the dressing up outfits with each other!
8. Disney Bounding
Get the adults involved with Disney bounding! Like the pictures show above, rather than dressing up properly, Disney bounding is when you theme your outfit like the characters instead! This is great fun to get older kids and grown ups into the dressing up too.
9. Make Your Own Crowns
This is a great idea as an activity for the kids to get stuck into at the party, and something extra to put in their party bags! Even better, the crowns are made out of paper and so easily recyclable!
10. Princess Castle
Unfortunately I didn’t have the time to try to create this amazing masterpiece! Nevertheless, this is an incredible idea that creates endless party fun for the children. Simple to make and sure to impress your little ones!
11. Photo Booth
Make lasting memories for your children with Disney themed photo-props to make some amazing photos. DIY them yourselves out of card and paper straws to save money and the environment!
12. THE CAAAAAAKE!!!
Last but not least, the CAKE!!!!
Okay so this isn’t a Pinterest post, but I’m always bewitched by these cake videos. These are simply perfect, and can be made on a smaller cupcake scale (with smaller dolls of course) so that your little one can have a variety of princesses at their party!
