That sounds like a cute idea.  Why don't you go to toys r us and find a wand there and make some things yourself?  will there be little kids at the party or mostly adults?  I have a ton of ideas for little kids but I don't have any for adults... I'm on the same boat as you.  Google 1st birthday and there's a bunch of websites that come up for decorations and princesses.  Good luck!

Here are some fun princess party ideas:

  • Invitations: Print your own using an elegant font on formal stationary, word it:

    "Hear Ye, Hear Ye, Princess ______ requests your presence for the celebration of her birthday."  "Please contact the Queen to R.S.V.P."  ~ On the invitation, ask each child to dress as a princess in her favorite dress.

  • Decorations:

    Use white and pink tulle (from your local fabric store) and drape over the doorway.  Decorate main table with a pink tablecloth.  Add sparkly confetti.  Scatter costume pearl necklaces and the like in the center of the table (around the cake or food). Pearly white, pink, and purple helium balloons and a pinata. Create a beautiful pink castle out of oatmeal boxes..

  • Menu:

    Serve 'tea sandwiches' ~white bread with cream cheese and strawberry jam, with crusts removed and cut into small triangles. 

    White chocolate drizzled over grapes

    White grape juice in (plastic) champagne flutes

  • Activities:

    Purchase a pack of plain party hats. Provide glue-on rhinestones, feathers, sequins, markers, and glue.  Have each 'princess' decorate her own birthday hat.

    Princess parade (like musical chairs)

    Movie showing of "Cinderella"

    Slay the dragon ~ pinata that is..

  • Party Favors: hand out magic wands - you can find links for these on

Here are also some ideas and tips for planning a first birthdays

Hope that helps!

Thank you everyone for your ideas, very helpful.  I printed invites with hear ye, hear yee, the king & queen invivte you to the castle of...& included time the carriage could pick up kids on back of invite & pic of a princess on front.

as kids arrive, girls will receive wands & gems & boys, swords. 

looking for some kind of red material or paper to put down as a runway any ideas?

party favor bags have lip gloss, candy bracelets, the frog prince 5minute bedtime story, etc.

I printed cards from vistaprint as thank you cards with her pic on back.
