Easy Princess Birthday Party Ideas

When I asked Little Miss what kind of birthday party she wanted, she answered without hesitation. A Princess Birthday Party!

Little Miss is your typical 3-year-old girl.  She loves anything princess and dress-up.  I wanted to save the Disney princess party until she was a little older, so I went with a more generic princess party.  And she had a blast!

When we party, we BBQ.

Hubby grills up some amazing chicken legs, including his own BBQ sauce.

The sides can be round-up from gardens and farmers’ markets.

Little Miss’ favorite foods are Mac & Cheese and Watermelon, so I made sure to include those on the menu.

Princess Cake

I used a crown-shaped cake pan for the cake.

To make the pink frosting, I added some beet powder to our go-to frosting recipe from Can You Stay For Dinner.

What is a Twitchetts party without a fun activity?  After J’s amazing Minecraft party or V’s fabulous Summer Celebration, Little Miss had some high expectations. So I went big…Castle big…
