When we moved Grace from her toddler bed to a twin-sized bed, we allowed her to pick whatever sheet set she wanted.
She chose Barbie.
Knowing me the way you do, I imagine you can guess what I thought of that. Believing that it was entirely her decision, my lips were zipped.
Since the linens came home, Barbie has been on Grace’s mind a lot.
Knowing that she would love to have a Barbie Princess Charm School party with her friends, I volunteered to have on in celebratation of the new Barbie Princess Charm School DVD coming out in a few weeks.
The party was pretty easy to put together, and the girls loved it.
How to Throw a Barbie Princess Charm School Party
First, we had place cards. I downloaded them from the Barbie Princess Charm School website. Another mom helped me add the girls’ names with glitter paint.
The girls decorated with streamers and balloons from my party box.
One of them escaped.
The first thing we did at the party was to decorate sparkly foam crowns.
The girls used glitter paint, jewels, and stickers to make their princess crowns perfect.
While the crowns were drying, the girls colored a picture of Barbie as a princess. I had downloaded it from this site.
While they were coloring, we talked about manners. I read some tips and quizzes from How to Be God’s Little Princess: Royal Tips on Manners and Etiquette for Girls.
And then we read through some tips from Barbie’s Princess Charm School.
We talked about how to set the table. The girls used this placemat as a guide to set their own place with pink silverware.
We ended the party with ice cream cake and punch.
I received a Barbie Princess Charm School party kit from One2One Network in order to throw this party.
