Disney's Sofia the First Party Ideas
Your little princess will love to celebrate her next birthday with Disney's Sofia the first party theme.
Sofia the first Party Invitations
The first thing to do is list down the names of all the guests you want to invite. Having done this, you need to decide upon a design for your party invites. Keep your invitations simple but try to be creative with colors. You can also involve your little princess to help you out in making invitations for her own themed party. First you'll have to choose a good quality card stock and then decorate it with Princess Sofia stickers, sprinkle some glitter, add text and voila! It is better to look up on the internet for references. You can also make a Princess Sofia cut-out and write all details of the party on the back to use it as an invite. The official Disney website features some cool printable Princess Sofia images. You can print them out and color them with your princess and then paste them on a card stock to turn it into a party invitation. If you are short on time, you can order ready-made invites over the internet, you will only need to provide relevant details and your invites will be delivered at your doorstep. Some websites also offer printable ready-made invites which you can print at home and then fill in the party details by hand.
Sofia the first Party Cake & Cupcake Ideas
A themed party without a cake is as boring for kids as a balloon without air. While planning a Sofia The First themed party, make sure you have enough time to bake a themed cake too. You can bake your cake sponge at home or buy it from a bakery or store and add decorations or fondants to it yourself as you desire. I saw a Princess Sofia shaped cake at a bakery a few days back and found it so pretty that I wanted to buy it for no reason. You can even make a round or rectangle shaped cake, top it with cream and decorate it with Sofia The First cake toppers that are readily available in the market. You can even recreate a scene from the series with those cake toppers. There are some really cool cake and cupcake toppers available, you just need to brainstorm the ideas, make the right choice and your guests will come running to you for their birthday cakes too!
If you're too short on time you can order your desired cake at a bakery and they'll do the job for you. But, if you have time, I'd suggest you decorate the cake yourself and involve your little princess too. This will make a fun activity for both of you.
Sofia the first Party Supplies
The essence of a themed party is lost if the party supplies and decoration does not correspond well to the theme. So, it is really important to pick items that complement your theme otherwise the Yoo-hoos, that you must be expecting from the kids, can turn into Boo-hoos. For your Sofia The First themed party, you'll be needing party plates, glasses, table cloth, a pinata, lots of balloons, confetti, a big birthday banner and anything more that you want to add to the list.
If you don't want to spend money on a table cloth, simply find a plain pink table cloth in your store and put a Princess Sofia centerpiece on it. For decoration, fill Sofia The First themed balloons with confetti so that when the balloons are pricked, the confetti would sprinkle all over and give an enchanting feeling to the guests. Put up a cute Sofia The First birthday banner to make the birthday girl feel like a real princess.
You can also buy party packs that include paper cups, plates and napkins for 8-16 guests. These party packs save you from the hassle of remembering every single thing you need for your party. Just count your guests order the party pack accordingly and you'll be all set for the party.
Sofia the first Party Favors
Every kid attending the party needs to be treated specially so that she doesn't feel left out. For this, you can put together small treat bags and put candies, Sofia The First stickers and other small give-aways in them for every other little princess to enjoy. You can buy Sofia The First treat bags at a store and fill them up with sticker sheets, themed bubble wands and party blowouts. If you don't want to put yourself in the pain of searching for appropriate gifts for all guest, simply order a Sofia The First party favor pack online. The pack includes activity sheets, magic wands, rings, sticker sheets, kaleidoscopes and mini rulers.
You can make themed Sofia The First party badges for all guests to wear while they enjoy and play around. Or maybe you can buy some bracelets and hang small printed Princess Sofia cutouts for a give-away on a budget.
Sofia the first Party Activities
A party without a game? Are you kidding me? This is what my 15 year old brother said to me when I told him that we won't be having any games for his 16th birthday party. This shows that even teens can't imagine a party without a fun activity. Kids are always up for exciting games and activities everywhere and every time. For your Sofia The First themed party, try to invent simple games for the kids so that they enjoy the rest of the party as well. For example, you can put colors and a coloring sheet featuring Princess Sofia and hold a small coloring competition. You can even put up a prize for the best colored picture.
Another idea can be to put up a Princess Hunt. Take a basket, fill it with stickers of different cartoon characters along with the stickers of Sofia the princess and ask all the kids to find the stickers of Sofia within a set time. The kid with the maximum number of stickers after the time is over wins the game.
The ultimate activity for every party is the Pinata. Even I love bursting the pinata and then grabbing my favorite candy out of all the heaps that fall from it. The kids would definitely love the candy bursting out from the Princess Sofia pinata.
