I have always had a fascination with princesses. I can’t help it. Even now as an adult, there’s a tiny part of me that still wishes I could be a princess. Well obviously that isn’t going to happen. But once a year at Halloween, I can still pretend I’m a strong, beautiful princess in a long flowing gown. It’s fun and something to look forward to each year. I try to be a different princess every year and fortunately, there is such a variety of costumes available, I haven’t run out of princesses yet!
This site is dedicated to my love of princesses and to hopefully help you find the perfect princess costume for you or someone you love.
Princess Halloween costumes allow every girl, whether she is an infant or in her 90′s, to transform herself into the princess she has always dreamed of being.
Every little girl grows up reading stories like Cinderella, Snow White and Beauty and the Beast. When we are little, we all dream of becoming the beautiful princesses we read about when we grow up.

Below is a great way to plan a princess party for your own little princess.
Do It Yourself Princess Party Decorations
In order to create the perfect princess party environment, you have to have the perfect princess party decorations. With just a few special finishing touches, without the major expense of a princess party, you can create the ideal atmosphere for your little princess.
Here are some of the items you will need:
- Sparkly gold princess shoes
- Princess piñata
- Christmas lights (white)
- Pink and white tulle
- Hot glue gun
- Golden plasticware and matching napkins and plates
- Construction paper and poster board
- Sparkly or golden head band
- Silky pillowcase (2)
- Princess cake (castle, favorite princess, etc)
- Rose and vase
- Princess hats
- Silk ribbons and flowers
Create a banner to place at the front door for your guests. You can create this from your silky pillowcases in the colors of your choice. Sew each pillowcase together making four rectangles (use front and back of pillowcases). This will be your very own royal banner that you can hang out on the door.
You can make a sign to hang in the inside of the house with the name of your little princess. Use silk flowers and a hot glue gun for this.
Use Christmas lights with the pink or white tulle. Hang this off of the banisters, windows and around any doorway to create an ambience of wonderland amazement. Use your raffia and use it to tie bows; silk flowers can be stuffed in each bow if you like. Take the tulle without the lighting and hang it around lights and chandeliers.
Princess party decorations would not be complete without the table showpiece. This is where you can set out your silver or golden colored napkins, plates and plasticware. Fold each napkin and place on top of a plate. Tie all the plasticware with golden or silver ribbons.
Create place mats for your table by taking large construction paper and punch out holes on the edges that are about one to two inches apart. Take curling ribbon and lace it through the holes and tie extra ribbon at the top making sure to curl it.
A princess hat can be placed on each plate with the name of each guest written on it.
Ribbon can be placed down the table’s length.
For the table’s centerpiece, place your vase and a single rose. You can even place a glass bowl there, fill it with water, and place a few flowers in it to float.
Use a high-heeled shoe and spray paint it golden. Pearlized paint can be used as well. This can be used a centerpiece for where gifts will be placed.
Refreshments and party games can be used as decorations as well. Hang up your piñata and set your princess cake out.
Remember to take plenty photos of this wonderful event and your princess party decorations so you can remember it for years to come.
