How to Have a Fun Pirate or Princess Birthday Party for Kids


If your child is getting ready to have a Birthday soon, you are probably thinking of a special theme.  So many kids seem to zero in on either a Princess Party or a Pirate Party.  Finding just the right party decorations can sometimes be time-consuming and a hassle, not to mention expensive.

That's why we are big advocates of Printable Parties.  Many online party companies now offer Party Printable pdf files that you can download to your computer and then print out the party decorations.  The party boy or girl can even help make the decorations with you.  Many of these Party Packets, with themes like Princess and Pirate, contain all the decorations for an entire theme party.  You can print the invitations, placemats, goodie bags, stickers, pennant banners, cupcake wrappers ... even magic Princess Wands or Pirate Swords.

We love these Princess Party printables that come in a variety of color options.  Let your little girl choose from Pink, Aqua or Purple.
