Royally Sweet Little Prince Birthday Party

This Little Prince themed first birthday party needs to win some sort of award for “Cutest Use of Milk Bottles”!  Designed by Katie of Petite Social, this celebration would also translate beautifully to a “Little Prince” inspired baby shower.

Little Prince Birthday Party Highlights

In addition to the ridiculously cute crown-wrapped “Majesty Milk”, the dessert table was filled with “royal” treats like bright yellow Prince Cake Pops and a fabulous crown-topped cake. Birthday hats adorned with paper rosettes and fringe trim were another fun DIY touch! Read on for more royally cute party photos and details…

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Katie

My client was celebrating her son’s upcoming 1st birthday party and wanted it to be a royal affair. Her requirements, “I want classy, elegant, and there has to be a crown.”

Most of my recent parties have really been vintage, rustic, shabby chic – I can’t help it! So, I was excited to style something a little more simple, clean, fresh, and modern this time around.

I chose to go with a baby blue, white, and yellow color theme. I created a dessert table with simple color coordinated desserts. Cake I Do created a lovely centerpiece cake with the perfect crown for our little prince. The milk bottles were individually wrapped a crown, which I thought was a fun little touch.

The children’s table was covered in bright yellow tablecloth with blue and yellow party accessories. I bought plain yellow party hats and embellished each with some fringed trim and rosettes that I made.

I also created a small table showcasing the Smasher cake and Wishes for Baby sign. Each guest was asked to fill out a wish list for our little prince.

It was a successful event and the King and Queen of the house were extremely happy with how their little Prince celebrated his 1st birthday – in style!

I’ve been able to find them in the kitchen section of Burlington Coat Factory — although I’ve only found red, not white yet

Such a smart idea to use those egg crates from Antrho for the cake pops! I have the blue one, now I have another use besides holding my eggs! Thanks!

I love the wishes for baby, are they available to print or do I have to purchase them?

I did something similar to those using those DIY wedding invitations from Target. You get $25 of them for about $27. Just copied everything those said on the ones from this blog and they put my own little touch on it. I think they turned out great! Good luck!

I love this theme. Can someone tell me what is the blue and white part of the rice krispy?

April SAYS:

I think she just drizzled the colored chocolate/icing around it. I bought some of the Wilson’s chocolate disks from Walmart; they’re about $2.50 for a bag and I’m trying this. I bought blue and white… hopefully it turns out as great as hers did. I’m doing something similar for my son’s first birthday – he’s also having a prince themed party. I am taking a lot of the ideas from here and putting a personal touch on them.
