Frozen Parties Now Even *Cooler* with Princess in her New Coronation Gown!

If you had told me at the beginning of this year that ‘Frozen’ parties would make-up 90% of our performances for 2014, I might have laughed. But here we are, more than half-way through 2014, and ‘Frozen’ is going strong. It’s the theme that can’t be stopped! Good thing we love it as much as our clients and birthday kids do… so much so, that we’ve added yet another costume to our wardrobe: the princess’ Coronation dress!

How sweet is that?! Now, when you book our ‘Frozen’ inspired princess, you could choose either her “winter wear” or “coronation dress” (if you have a preference). Of course, we book on a first-come, first served basis, so those who reserve us early are going to have the best chance at choosing the costume style they prefer.

This costume was custom made by our in-house designer; each appliqué was hand-embroidered and the back has a beautiful, working corset which means a tailored fit on each performer.

You should know that we’re very exclusive when it comes to our princess party bookings; we’re not like other companies who churn-and-burn, booking their performers on 4, maybe even 5 or 6 (could you believe it?!) parties per day! No, we limit our performers so that we can insure our clients an energized, beautiful looking performer (and wig & costume). But now that we have four costumes altogether (two for the ‘Snow Queen’ — the Elsa inspired character — and two for the ‘Norwegian Princess’ — the Anna inspired character), we can send out up to two teams at the same time. This is great news, as our performers have been in high-demand, since we are so picky about only casting seasoned actors/dancers/singers who are authentic look-alikes for our character performances; in fact, most of our female cast members have been princess and storybook face characters at the famous theme parks, too.

The details on this up-do wig (custom made for us by pro stylists) are just so lovely…

When our princess characters perform at parties, we hear things from parents like “polished” and “never seen anything like it”. Notice how I didn’t say “best” or “amazing”? This isn’t because our audiences don’t say these things, it’s simply because anyone can say that they are the “best”, or they are “amazing”, and it doesn’t mean anything in the abstract. Let’s get real here: I’m sure you’ve been looking at other websites online for princess party characters or Frozen characters in Los Angeles and you’ve seen some claiming to have “the best” that, look to you in your opinion, anything but. Here at Papillons Entertainment, we don’t want to make outrageous claims; we just want to give you a truly high-end, theatrical experience at your special event. If that’s what you’re looking for, it won’t come cheap, but I’m certain we will provide your party with the “wow factor” you’re aiming for.

A Perfect Little Princess Party With Cinderella

‘Cinderella’ is just the perfect princess. She can do no wrong, can she? The poor thing literally had to sweep the cinders from the fireplace, hence the nickname bestowed upon her by those not-so-nice step sisters. And after being treated like a servant by her own family for most of her young life, how could you not love her? And how could you not admire her for the poise and grace she maintains no matter what sadness comes her way?

For these reasons, and many others (lest we forget that beautiful ball gown, and those shoes!), it’s no surprise that little children are drawn like mice to cheese to the lovely princess ‘Cinderella’.

This character makes the perfect addition to a party for your 3 to 5 year old girl. In my experience, when you’re dealing with preschoolers, a smaller group is best with a classic princess party like this. Try to keep your group to no more than 12 children for the most comfortable, immersive experience with the princess.

Our performances are unique experiences, truly. In fact, at the party pictured here, one of the mother’s came up to the photographer and told her “I’ve never seen anything like this”. One of the many things that set our performances apart is that they are like pint-sized, interactive, theatrical shows that happen in your backyard… or even at your local park, like this one in Beverly Hills’ Roxbury Park.

We’ve been in the children’s entertainment industry as a company for over 8 years (and our founder has been a children’s entertainer herself for over 13 years), which means we can help you with any questions you might have about your princess party, even when it comes to the logistics of your party. For example, what’s the best time of day to have a party for pre-schoolers? We find that the morning is best for this age group, especially in the summer before the sun gets too high in the sky and the temperature soars.

If you can’t have your party in the morning, the next best time is late afternoon (as late as possible in the hot July, August and September months in Los Angeles). Make it a dinner time party and invite guests to come at about 4:00 or 5:00pm, and then have your entertainment arrive about 30 minutes after the official start of your party. With pre-schoolers, it’s a good idea not to wait too long after the official start time of your party for the princess to begin her performance, unless you know that you typically have significantly late guest arrivals.

One of the great things about our performances which works well with classic princess parties for little girls like this, is that no formal eating time is required. Children can simply munch on pizza or sandwiches picnic-style with our princess during her circle time activities, which is ideal with preschoolers who have little patience as it is for a sit-down meal.

We include a great variety of engaging activities in every performance, which is just right for preschool princess parties. We know that small children often have a short attention spans, so we keep our performances flowing from one activity to the next and have a few other tricks up our sleeve to pique their interests.

If you have any questions about your upcoming celebration, please feel free to get in touch! And if you’re wanting to throw a classic fairytale party for your child’s 3rd, 4th, or 5th birthday, do consider the divine miss ‘Cinderella’: the perfect princess for your little princess.
