Celebrate your little girl’s upcoming birthday in full princess style with a Sofia the First theme. A royal purple themed party will have everything your precious girl and Sofia herself could ever dream of from purple dresses to purple desserts to purple princess wand party favors.
Dressing up your little girl in a purple princess dress is sort of a requirement for a Sofia the First birthday party. Any little girl who is crazy for a Sofia the First birthday party will flip out about getting to select her very own Sofia dress. A beautiful purple party dress is sure to make her truly feel like a princess for the day. Some girls may insist on having a purple dress with Sofia on it, but don’t feel limited to this option if your little girl isn’t pushing for it. Encourage the guests to wear their favorite party dresses as well or have a selection of dress up clothes on hand for them to wear during the party.
Purple frosted cupcakes and cookies seem to be the desserts of choice for little girl Sofia the First birthday parties. Adding plastic silver crowns to the cupcakes is a fun finishing touch. Some moms opt to arrange their cupcakes in the style of a dress, which is beautiful and creative. A plate of frosted sugar cookies topped with sparkling sugar completes the dessert display.
Purple floral centerpiece
Purple floral centerpieces are simple and festive while upping the girly element of the celebration. Cover Mason jars with purple acrylic paint, chalkboard paint, or spray paint. Then fill each jar with a small selection of flowers. If you want to add a Sofia touch, complete each centerpiece with a plastic silver crown and the number for your little girl’s birthday (i.e. the number 4 for a little girl turning four years old).
Pin the Tail on Minimus game
Parents who have been watching Sofia the First with their kids are familiar with Minimus, Sofia the First’s flying pony who lives in the stables of Royal Prep. It’s only fitting to play a variation of pin the tail on the donkey where you pin the tail on Minimus.
Purple princess-themed photo backdrop
Once the girls are dressed up in their finest Sofia appropriate party dresses, they’ll want to get a few pictures. Pick up an inexpensive purple sheet or tablecloth, and hang it from the ceiling. Embellish the backdrop with strands of silver stars, glitter, or another sparkly material. Toward the end of the party, let the birthday girl and guests break into the princess wand party favors to use as props for their pictures.
Purple princess wand party favors
Princess wand party favors are a natural choice for a Sofia the First birthday party. You may even be able to find Sofia the First themed wands. Package them in purple bags with plastic tiaras and a couple of sweet treats, finished with a purple ribbon.
In case you haven’t incorporated enough purple into the party yet, think about how you can add a few decorative purple elements to your party space. A tablecloth on the food table, bows on the backs of the chairs, and crepe paper circles on the fireplace will pull the whole theme together.
As you plan your Sofia the First girl’s birthday party, don’t forget to check the dollar bins at Target and Michaels. You never know when you’ll find a fantastic deal on plastic princess wands, Mason jars, or mini frames, which serve as perfect food place cards.
