Cinderella Party by Tonya Coleman

Hi there! This is Tonya Coleman from Soiree Event Design here and I’m one of the featured party stylists for the Birthday Express Ideas blog. I’m super excited to share with you my tips and tricks on how to pull off fabulous looking parties with less stress.



Disney Princess parties have been super popular FOREVER! I love when Disney comes out with a new live action version of our favorite fairytale stories and this year, one of my daughter’s favorites was Cinderella.   Today I’m going to share with you these fun ideas to host a Disney Princess Cinderella birthday party.

Tip #1: Include a Wow-Factor Dessert Table!


The dessert table is always the biggest hit with both kids and parents alike. For the color palette I used light blue, white and silver—inspired by the Cinderella line of birthday party supplies and then added in lots of sparkly crystals. A girl’s gotta have a bit of sparkle, right? Keeping the color palette to a few colors really gives the table a stylish and high-end look. Birthday Express has lots of color-coordinated candy so you can create a candy table with less stress. Simply order all your candy with the party supplies and you’re set.


And to make it super easy, here’s a list of what I ordered:

Whirly Pops (blue/white)


– Rock candy sticks (light blue and clear)–These double as Fairy Godmother magic wands!



Sixlets (light blue)


Gumballs (light blue)

– Jelly Belly jellybeans (berry blue flavor)



Add a few custom desserts like these glittered cake pops, chocolate carriage lollipops and chocolate covered OREOs by Sparkling Sweets Boutique.



There! Now your table has the perfect balance of candy and desserts. Be sure to display your color coordinated candy in clear containers so you get the full effect of the color of the candy.


Tip #2: Have a Princess Dress Up Station!


Seriously, every little girl wants to dress up like a princess, right? Dress Up stations are always a HUGE HIT at any princess party.



Birthday Express offers many Cinderella costumes right now along with lots of accessories like shoes, tiaras, gloves, jewelry and more—making your job of putting this together a breeze!

Tip #3: Add a Touch of Princess Glam to your Party Dining Table!


When designing a character-based party I always love to mix in a few high-end items to elevate the look and feel of the party’s decor. Here is no different.


Simply add a sparkly silver charger plate under the Cinderella dinner plates and bling cutlery to add a sparkly high end look.

Tip #4: Send Your Guests Home with Cinderella Favors & Yummy Sweets!


Planning a party shouldn’t be stressful. Picking party favors can sometimes be overwhelming. Birthday Express makes it easy with their Party Favor Kits to match lots of themes. I ordered these favor boxes that matched the party and lots of cute favors for each guest to take home. They loved it.


I also ordered a few more empty favor boxes so that each little princess guest could fill their boxes with yummy treats from the dessert table.


I hope this gives you some inspiration for your next Cinderella princess party.
