I wanted a Prince themed party for my little boy. But everywhere I searched only had princess themes for girls, nothing much for a boy. So I decided to get creative and do it myself. We hosted the party in a banquet hall ,so I did not have to worry about the food. There was an elaborate lunch buffet with plenty to eat and drink.
I wanted to do something different. As I researched on the internet, I did not find many ideas/parties on a prince thme for a boy. I decided to pursue that on my own and took it up as a challenge.It was a tough job, because I did not find anything easily sicne the stores were full of girly princess stuff, but nothing for a boy.
Unique and elegant
I started planning months in advance. I knew it will take some time finding stuff, so I started my search early and this helped me a lot. I had a lot of details planned (atleast on my excel sheet) and I had a clear idea how to proceed next.
Online :- www.shindigz.com - I ordered some decorations from here
www.etsy.com - I ordered his customized birthday shirt
Stores:- Michaels, hobby lobby, party city
I gave princess tiaras and cardboard crowns to each child as they arrived at the party.
I customized the party favors for each child according to their age. I got prince theme favor bags and decorated them with each child's name and small crown sticker on 1 side and a Thank You with another small crown on the other side.
The invitations and the monthly photo banner I made from scratch...And of course the cake.. It turned out so good...The lady did an awesome job..
Start planning early, you will have more time to do lot of research. This will also help in price match. For example I maintained an excel spread sheet for the birthday party. I noted tiny details too and kept record of which items are cheapest at which places/websites.
