Decorations for a Cinderella Dreamland Party


Decorating for your Cinderella Dreamland party means a lot of girlish touches and a lot of fun.

Start your decorating with the Cinderella Dreamland Kit-N-Kaboodle. It contains tons of decorations for your party such as tableware for 8, silver star confetti, blue pearl balloons, pink pearl balloons, silver curling ribbon and a light blue tablecover. The Deluxe Kit-N-Kaboodle also includes a 10”x 30” banner, a Cinderella Dreamland mylar balloon, pink crepe streamers, azure blue crepe streamers and silver spiral candles.

Use the Kit-N-Kaboodle to create a great base for your decorations, and then let things really take off.

Add a Cinderella Dreamland Walk-through Banner to your decorations. It’s perfect for dividing space and creates a cool entryway. Hang it in a doorway for extra fun.

Really start the party off with a bang using the Castle Entrance. The pretty pink castle decoration is great for little princess to enter Cinderella’s Dreamland though. Plus, it’s fantastic for commemorative photos.

A Coloring Throne provides just the right spot for the birthday Princess 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.

Create balloon bunches in blue and pink pearl tone balloons. Tie them together with curling ribbon in clusters of odd numbers. Add a Cinderella Dreamland mylar balloon for an extra accent.

Table Decorations:

A well-decorated table can create a stunning focal point for your party and really bring all your theme decorations together.

Create a base for your Cinderella Dreamland table decorations with a Cinderella Dreamland tablecover. Over top, sprinkle silver star confetti and place a castle centerpiece or a Cinderella Dreamland Centerpiece in the middle. If you have a really long table, select a variety of fairytale centerpieces and place three spaced out evenly across the top of the table.

Next, set the Cinderella Dreamland tableware at each placesetting. The tableware ensemble includes plates, cups, napkins and cutlery for each guest. Place each placesetting on a Cinderella Dreamland placemat which has puzzles and games for guests to play.

Add little decorations to your table such as personalized Dreamy Princess Buttons, Cinderella Dreamland molded candles, and Cinderella Dreamland chalk. These items make great favors as well as decorations.

Hang a Cinderella Dreamland jointed banner behind your table to really accent the theme.

A Castle Cake for your Cinderella Dreamland Party


All the party guests will live happily-ever-after…after they consume this easy-to-make pink and gold fairy tale fantasy cake!  
      

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
• Two packaged cake mixes
• Four 16 oz. Containers of “pink” ready-made frosting
• One “board” for displaying the cake
• 2 / 9”X13” cake pans
• 8 – regular flat-bottom ice cream cones
• 4 – sugar cones
• 1 pound of Almond (gold) Hershey’s Kisses™
• 6 – pink sugar wafers
• 2 – 6” pieces of string licorice
• 1 container of gold edible candy balls
• optional – edible iridescent glitter to sprinkle over the entire cake

Prepare and bake two 9” X 13” cakes according to directions on the package. Allow cakes to cool for 10-15 minutes.  Trim the tops of the cakes while they are still in the pans so that they will be level when inverted on the cake board.  Place cakes on wire rack until completely cooled.  Place one cake in the center of the cake board.  Use frosting, strawberry jam, or Cool Whip™ as the filling between the two layers of cake.  Place the second cake on top of the first cake.  Frost the entire rectangular cake with pink frosting.

Frost 8 regular ice cream cones with pink frosting, and connect four sets of two by the base of the cones.  The bottom cone will be turned upside down, and the top cone will be right side up.  After frosting the cones, place one set at each corner of the cake – instant turrets!  Frost 4 sugar cones with pink frosting, and liberally sprinkle with gold edible balls.  Add the “spires” to the top of each turret.  Place three pink sugar wafers in the front of the castle as the castle door (simply press gently into the frosting).  Place three additional wafers at the base of the “door”.  Attach licorice strings from the top of the door wafers, to the edge of the wafers on the cake board, and the “drawbridge” is complete.  Outline the top of the cake and the bottom edge of the castle with golden kisses.  Golden candles complete the cake!
 
If you are serving more people than can be accommodated by 2 boxed mixes (24-28 people), we recommend that you simply bake extra cupcakes, or an extra rectangular cake.  All can just be frosted simply in matching pink frosting, and cut and served behind the scenes.

Food:
• Serve dainty finger sandwiches, strawberries dipped in chocolate, and mini cutout sugar cookies.
• Use our purple, gold or iridescent shimmer stars to label food dishes.  Come up with creative names related to the theme.  Label diamond shaped J-ello™ Jigglers as the “Crown Jewels”; a pink punch as “Palace Potion”; mini sandwiches as “Princess Puffs”; hot dogs as “Dragon Dogs” (serve with the new green ketchup!), etc.
• Serve food on gold or silver platters.  If you are using plastic metallic trays, glue a few faux jewels to the outside edge.
• Garnish food with edible loose-leaf gold, and add a sprinkling of tiny edible gold balls to each child’s serving of ice cream.  
• Serve dry snacks (chips, pretzels, Cheese Puffs) in crowns turned upside down.
• As the excitement is so high at most children’s birthday parties, most children under the age of 10 or 11 will eat very little, and the waste can be disheartening.  Schedule your party during a time when parents will not expect that their children will eat a meal…and serve only cake, ice cream, and a few other dainty munchies.

A Cinderella themed birthday party is a great choice for your favorite birthday girl. It’s not only a classic Disney princess; it also brings in all the elements of a fairytale romance.

Activities for a Cinderella Dreamland Birthday Party


A Cinderella Dreamland party just wouldn’t be complete without some fairytale magic. This theme is perfect for little girls and the activities that follow will guarantee many “dream come true” memories!

Games and Activities:

Gather all the fun dress-up clothing you can find (or borrow from friends)…fun, frilly dresses (size is completely irrelevant), feather boas, faux fur wraps, high-heeled play shoes, capes, etc. As each guest arrives, invite her into the royal wardrobe to dress up. After each guest has selected an outfit befitting a princess on her way to the ball, apply some royal makeup. Girls love this part!  Finally, a castle party just wouldn’t be complete without tiaras, scepters and sashes.  We offer some wonderful princess costumes that would make a delightful gift for the birthday princess and would be terrific additions to a dress-up box for many years to come.

Palace Parade – After all the party guests have dressed up, have the birthday child lead a palace parade through the backyard or through the house with the help of a tambourine or other musical instrument. The beaming smiles of the children during the spirited parade will provide a perfect photo opportunity and some priceless video footage. As the girls walk through the Castle Entrance Decoration, have Dad or another good sport introduce each princess by saying (for example), “Hear Ye, Hear Ye…Princess Brianna of Birmingham has arrived at the Ball!”

The girls will delight in learning how to waltz.  Play some simple waltz music, and teach them the box step, how to curtsy, and how to put a gloved hand forward for a kiss from Prince Charming.  You’ll be guaranteed to hear lots of giggles from the precious princesses!

Our exclusive Coloring Throne provides just the right spot for the birthday Cinderella to sit as she opens her gifts.  Allow each guest to add a small message or special drawing to the throne to personalize this darling keepsake.

Play a princess version of the tried and true party game of Hot Potato using a mini glass slipper (made of plastic). Have the children stand in a circle. While the music is playing, they need to pass the shoe to one another as quickly as possible. When the music stops, the child holding shoe will be out. Continue playing until only one child remains.

Musical Tiaras – Play this game using the same concept as the classic game of musical chairs…one less tiara than there are children for each round.  Place Rhinestone or Sequin Tiaras on a table that the princesses must walk around while the music is playing. When the music is turned off, the girls must scramble to put on a tiara. The child without a tiara must leave the game and the game continues with one less crown until there is one child remaining – the Queen!  The tiaras can then be used as favors!

We offer a wonderful Cinderella Dreamland piñata and we’ve yet to find a child who doesn’t want to take a swing at one at a party!  Try using a broom from Cinderella’s old kitchen as the bat.

Crafts:

Royal Goblets – Let all the royal subjects decorate simply beautiful imprinted glassware with Stick-on Jewels or sequins. The glasses make an extra special party favor and can even be filled with goodies after the children decorate them.

Palace Perfect Posing – For each party guest, you’ll need a simple frame, a supply of faux jewels or sequins, and some tacky glue.  Prior to the party, use a metallic gold paint pen and write each guest’s name, along with her royal title on the top edge of the frame, or our acrylic frames can be imprinted with a special message.  Allow the children to decorate the frames and pose for a royal portrait in the Castle Entrance with the birthday girl. Use either a Polaroid camera to send a picture home with each guest or mail keepsake photos at a later date with thank you notes.

Magical Wands – Purchase one giant Pixie Stick for each child. Attach two 4″ Shimmer Stars to the top of each Pixie Stick, attaching them back-to-back to the paper label. Let the children decorate the wands with stickers, Stick-On Jewels, and trailing streamers made from Curling Ribbon. The leftover stars can be used for decorating the kingdom. The “magical fairy dust” inside the wand is a big-hit bonus even if it won’t turn pumpkins into horse drawn carriages!
