My Princess Party to Go: Review and Giveaway

hypothesis My Princess Party to Go will provide busy Moms with  quality and affordable options for otherwise pricey birthday parties.  The party ideas and favors will also encourage pretend play among party goers.

One Oh So Cute Diamond Cut Tiara and Unicorn Set for Aubrie (my 18 month old), one Princess Wand and Tiara set for Lily (my 4 year old), two pink tutus and my two excited princesses.   About My Princess Party to Go:

Lily’s 5th birthday is just around the corner (gasp!) and she has mentioned wanting a princess party on more than one occasion.  Honestly, I have tried to steer her away from this type of party for several reasons:

1.  I am just not creative enough to come up with princess games, costumes, treat bags, etc.

2.  How on Earth am I going to find time to plan and execute a party like this?

3.  It sounds expensive.

4.  How do I incorporate boys in a princess party?

So, when Princess Party to Go contacted me to do a review, I was thrilled to check it out!  What I found made all of my apprehensions about hosting a preschool princess party melt away.  Your “Fairy Godmompreneur” will send you exactly what you need to host a successful party from game suggestions, costumes, tiaras, party favors and even ideas for boys, this company does it ALL!  For example, for only $175, you can purchase a “Princess and Her Knight Party Package” including dress up costumes for boys AND girls (8 guests), 8 goodie bags, 8 craft projects (unicorn or dragon), gold coin game, boa for limbo game, tatoos, 3 rings for a sword game, dragon puppet, and 8 jester balls!

What I love about these packages is that you not only get the dress up costumes (which each guest gets to keep!), but you also get the party games and party favors delivered directly to your doorstep!  Send invites, open the box, and poof….PARTY MAGIC!  For a busy Mom, I feel like a queen!  And the best part?  The packages are completely affordable!

We received two party favors:  tiara and wand set ($4.25 a piece) and tiara and unicorn set ($3.99 a piece).  Both favors were beautifully packaged and completely ready to hand out to party guests.  The tiaras had attached combs that held the tiara in place even on my 18 month old.  The unicorn was precious, too!  Aubrie carried it around all night!

summary

Overall, I loved the My Princess Party to Go website.  The “Fairy Godmompreneurs” have wonderful ideas to bring your princess party to life including way to entertain the boys.  You can purchase party packages that include everything you need to host a successful party.  There are several themed packages to choose from including Princess and Pirates, Fairy and Wizard and a Pretty in Pink Princess Party.  Don’t need a complete package?  You can order tutus, tiaras or party favors separately!

Do you have a princess in waiting?  Trying to plan the perfect birthday party?  My Princess Party to Go has offered one lucky not so blog reader a $50 gift card to jumpstart your party plans!
