Cool and Trendy Homecoming Theme Ideas


Homecoming is all about the students, so shouldn’t the party be all about the students’ interests? We think so! Make this year’s homecoming something everyone will be talking about for a long time by using the latest trends as the theme!

Up, Up, and Away!

Thor

Superheroes are very popular right now. There has almost always been a superhero movie in theaters or coming to theaters in the past few years. Superheroes allow us to imagine a world where people can obtain extraordinary abilities and be a beacon of hope to all of humanity against the forces of evil. Create that feeling at this year’s homecoming! A very popular superhero movie that just came out is the Avengers. Why not make this year “Avengers”-themed? There are many other superheroes to use as themes, as well, but if you’re looking for a more general superhero party, no worries! Make the event about superheroism in general. You could even use the theme of “Everyone’s a Supehero,” where the guests can be superheroes for the night.

Fantasy: The Unrestrained Imagination

What are your fantasies? Medieval adventure? Magical encounters? Travels in space? Let imaginations run free at this year’s homecoming with a fantasy theme. Guests can be a great king or queen, a mighty knight, a cunning mage, or even an adventurous astronaut! Why not all of the above? Create a land of many fantasies all combined into one big adventure. To escape to a world where your biggest and most glorious ideas come to life is a possibility that you give your guests for the night.

The Sky Is Falling!

Doomsday theories are very popular right now, especially with the Mayan 2012 Doomsday theory. Make this homecoming an End of the World theme! There are all kinds of theories out there, which makes for many possible apocalyptic settings. Scare the guests with a zombie apocalypse or turn out the lights with a blackout apocalypse. Set up a desolate city where your guests are the only survivors. Any one you choose, the apocalyptic feeling will be present and enjoyed by all!

Whether you’re feeling super, imaginative, or apocalyptic, these themes will make this homecoming the best yet. Stay creative and exciting!

Magical Princess Party Ideas


Every little princess dreams of her perfect fairytale – her beautiful pink gown that glistens in the light of the moon, her shiny silver slippers that grace her twinkling toes, her stunning tiara that crowns her and captures the glow of her picturesque smile, and of course, her reigning moment of beauty. Each little princess envisions her royal moment in her own unique way, but one aspect is for certain, it is always one of the dreamiest moments in a little girl’s life.  Oh, the marvel of a little princess’ whimsical imagination!

Belle of the Ball

Share your plans for a fairytale birthday or princess playdate with personalized fairytale floral photo cards. They are a perfect way to spread the news far and away that your little princess will be holding a royal gala! Invite all your favorite little princesses to share in your Once Upon A Time event. Remind each princess to come dressed in their gown just in case her handsome prince appears!

Isn’t She Lovely

Since every little princess will be elegantly displaying her perfect gown it is only fitting that a shoe and tiara accompanies.

  • Purchase adorable costume slippers and let your princesses’ parade around the party in their dazzling heels.
  • Purchase assorted colorful tiaras that will be sure to sparkle in the eyes of their prince.
  • Plan time for the little princesses to have their hair and make-up done, because every princess loves to look her best. Be sure to have play/costume make-up, hair spray, brushes, bobby pins, and ribbon.
  • For something special, you can even have assorted nail polish colors and paint their pretty hands and twinkle their toes for them! And for something a little extraordinary, sprinkle some glitter on their freshly painted nails!
  • Plan to have a couple of chaperone friends around to help you with their hair, make-up, and nails.

A Royal Feast

After your little princesses have prepared for their big evening, treat them to a royal feast. Be sure to dress up your royal feast with everything that your little princess could desire. Check with her to see what items she would like since each princess dreams of her day in her own little way. Remember your lovely princess plates, napkins, and silverware. Embellish your event with streamers and ribbon. Add a centerpiece for an adding touch. If you would like to enhance your table decorations, try adding a glass slipper at each girl’s setting and fill it with princess favor mints – they can double as party favors, too!

Enchantment

And what is a royal gala without an enchanted dance to follow the dinner? Your princesses will love to twirl and spin as their flowing locks drape through the air like kites in the sky. Decorate a small room in your home into a dance floor. Use glittery princess balloons and streamers to section off the dance floor. Play their favorite romantic princess music with a Princess Movie Hits CD and watch them whisk away into their fairytale dreams.

A Night to Remember

Let the sounds of the gala reign on high

Since every little princess dreams of her royal moment, make her dream memorable with a picture in front of the castle wall. Turn on the royal trumpet music and roll out the red carpet. Capture the essence of the night and surprise your honorary princess with a special surprise appearance from her one and only prince, Dad. Just don’t forget to have the camera ready so you can snap an everlasting picture of their endearing affections. After the party, print off the pictures and send each princess a picture of their night to remember in a thank you card. They will always remember the day you made their dreams come true!

Princess Ideas for Her Girls Birthday Party


She’ll Always Be Your Princess!

“Yes, my Lady, your company eagerly awaits you and desires your presence!” Age matters not, because girls love to be treated like princesses. Whether they are gallantly riding horses in open meadows and fields, dancing merrily while hoping to meet prince charming or dining elegantly in serene surroundings, a princess party is the ultimate foundation for dozens of girl’s birthday party ideas.

Planning the Perfect Princess Party

Princesses have their own personalities, preferences and desires. Before anything else can be accomplished, the perfect theme, one that will please her grace beyond measure, should be determined, so that all party decoration supplies coordinate together.

Personalized invitations, menus, table decorations, activities, birthday party games and matching party favors will each add a touch of style and flair to the grand and wonderful celebration. Every detail should be considered including lighting decorations, balloons and even gift wrap supplies.

Decorating for a Princess Party

Begin by layering sheer, shimmering gossamer fabric all over the room, designing special photo corners, tying bows around chairs, covering unsightly areas and creating a soft and welcoming ambience for your majesty.

Determine the menu and how to present your offerings. Buffet style banquets are excellent for more casual and social events, while barbecues work well for outside gatherings. Princess parties needn’t always be formal. However, the elegance of hosting a sit-down meal should be happily considered as well. Consider the classic girl’s tea party, for example.

Use garland, balloons and ribbon freely, hanging it from light fixtures, draping it over curtains and swaying it in archways and doorways. Separate party events like eating, dancing and games, allowing guests the courtesy of enjoying whatever they are doing, at any given time.

Hosting the Ultimate Girl’s Birthday Party

It’s the little things that make all the difference, when planning a girl’s birthday party. Choosing the right colors, selecting her favorite foods, presenting the “to die for” cake and playing the perfect music all contribute to the overall success of hosting a girl’s birthday party every princess will love. Girls have a way of lighting up the room when they look and feel like princesses, which is why every girl deserves to be treated like royalty on her birthday.

Decorations for a Fairytale Princess Party


Elegant decorations for your Fairytale Princess party are a snap with these tips!

Outdoor decorations:
“Once Upon a Time”…some precious little girls entered an enchanting Castle Gate. All the princesses will thrill at the sight of what awaits them. Our castle gate makes an absolutely wonderful photo backdrop and can easily be moved indoors for hours of imaginative play!

Attach a bouquet of helium-filled balloons to a light post or mailbox so there will be no mistaking where the fun will be that day!

Indoor Decorations

Our Castle Entrance makes a lovely backdrop for royal portraits and for a princess procession.  Your daughter will enjoy countless hours of make-believe magic in this precious castle long after the party ends.

A Coloring Princess Throne provides just the right spot for the birthday Queen to sit as she opens her gifts and thanks all her royal subjects for joining her on her special day.
Add an 8” tall Castle Silhouette to any wall in the Kingdom…a regal decoration at a pauper’s price!

Tie bows with Sparkle Netting across the top of each chair back. The bows can be cut to any length, and even look lovely with tails trailing on the floor. Make bows to hang anywhere and everywhere…chairs, doorways, tree trunks, stair rails, deck posts, gift packages or table-ends. The bows hold their shape beautifully at a fraction of the cost of wired ribbon.

Use the decorations from the Fairytale Princess Party Kit to decorate too. The kit includes tableware for 8, iridescent star confetti, pink pearl balloons, lavender pearl balloons, yellow curling ribbon and a pink tablecover. The deluxe kit also includes a  fairytale princess banner, fairytale princess mylar balloon, fuchsia crepe streamers, lavender crepe streamers.

Table Decorations:

A well-decorated table is another great way to tie all your theme decorations together. Start your table decorations with a Fairytale Princess tablecover. Over the top, sprinkle iridescent star confetti. To the center of your table add the Fairytale Princess centerpiece.

Set each place with the Fairytale Princess tableware. You can make bundles of the cutlery using napkins and curling ribbon.

Party favors also make great table decorations place little tubes of lip gloss, personalized princess stickers and buttons or princess pens at each placesetting.
