Cinderella 3rd Birthday Party


We had a Cinderella party for our little princess as she turned three. I enjoy collecting items for the party and making as many of the decorations as I can as a special touch. We had the girls dress up as princesses and made pillowcase knight costumes for the boys.

Design Inspiration

Disney's Cinderella. I love the look of rosettes and had fun figuring out how to incorporate them into the projects. They were the base of my birthday banner, the magic wands for the girls, and on the favor bags.

Decorating Style

The feel of the party was to be magical and special for my little princess. I wanted it to feel magical.

Project Details

BIRTHDAY BANNER- blue card stock and patterned paper from Archivers. Cinderella stickers from JoAnn,  Ribbon from Joann

CAKE PLATES - Home Goods, Ribbon JoAnn

DOOR HANGER - Frame from Michaels then painted blue, 3 from Hobby Lobby then covered with silver glitter

PILLOWS and DISPLAY - Clear glass plate and candleholders from Hobby Lobby, Bling Ribbon to hang the beads on the side from Joann, Fabric to make pillow from Joann.

KNIGHT COSTUMES - We could not leave the boys out, so we made knight costumes out of a pillowcase and fabric.


Favorite Items

I love the birthday banner. It was what started this whole process. I really love how it turned out. I try to make a special banner every year for my kids to keep. I am really pleased with how it turned out. I also loved the Knight costumes. I think they were just the right thing to help the boys not feel so left out at a Princess party.


If you purchase simple items at Michaels or other craft stores on clearance, you can make a collection of usable items to weave into your different parties like vases, candle holders, etc...

Everything is so Cinderella-ish! I especially like those cushions with the tiara and the glass slipper!
