When our client in Beverly Hills asked us to plan an upscale princess party for her daughter’s 5th birthday, we were thrilled to be of service. Princesses are our specialty, after all.
But then she gave us almost all creative control! Save for the color scheme (magenta, aqua blue, and purple) and request for a classical pianist (more on that to below), the party was ours to imagine. Wow! What a dream for both the lucky birthday girl as well as our event production team.
We started right away by designing and constructing custom invitations fashioned into scrolls for our birthday queen to deliver to her “royal subjects” at school.
Next, we designed a cake table worthy of our glamorous, charming celebrant: Queen Kierra. And when you’re a queen, you wear a crown, so we were careful to sprinkle a light crown motif throughout the party design.
And of course the cake itself was unbelievable (and just as irresistible in flavor as it was in looks). Just look at the details of this epic princess cake up-close.
The three-tiered-cake was made in layers of chocolate, vanilla, and red velvet. Mmmm…
We know that waiting for the cake to be cut can try a child’s patience, so tower-shaped cupcake cones and personalized sugar cookies for guests to snack on throughout the party framed each side of the cake table.
In fact, this party had so many sweet treats, we had to create a full-on second dessert table to display all the goodies.
Outside, in back of the house, we set-up an enchanting tent to house the children’s dining and princess character activities.
Designed to take advantage of our client’s glorious view of Los Angeles, the tent was decked-out in lilac colored drapes, lush fresh florals featuring pops of magenta and gold, a craft table prepped with crowns and pirate mustaches to be decorated, and a royal throne, of course!
With guests starting to trickle in, our classical pianist began to fill the air with the sound of music: Disney music! And my-oh-my, was it ever beautiful…
I couldn’t resist, I sang along with just about every song. And so did our princess characters! More on that later…
Speaking of princesses, when they made their grand entrances, that’s when the party really started.
Accompanied by a young pirate, straight from Neverland, the children were delighted to play with this charming bunch of characters which included Rapunzel, The Snow Queen, and her younger princess sister (inspired by Hans Christian Anderson and made popular by the movie Frozen).
Together, they danced, played imaginative games, and sang songs… around the piano! What a beautiful site it was to behold, simply magical.
It’s difficult to describe in words, and even pictures don’t fully do this unique experience justice (you kind of had to be there to feel the energy and excitement in the room), but peek at the photos and below and you’ll just scratch the surface of how incredible this entire party experience really was.
Below, I’ve included the highlight reel of the entire party, for those curious to see more.
As event producers, we can document the day and deliver the story of your celebration through, not only photography, but cinematography as well.
At the end of it all, after the cake was cut, and the crowns were bejeweled, it was time to say farewell.
As guests headed back to their own kingdoms, they were invited to take with them their own personalized coloring books.
The sun was setting on this perfect princess party, but not before lots of “warm hugs” were shared between friends new and old.
T’was a dream come true.
We can’t wait for our next princess party planning adventure!
