I like the tea part idea.  We do a mothers day tea at our school and I bought teaplates at thrift sores for a dollar or less each.  The are very pretty oblong china or glass plates with a raised circle in the corner to help hold the tea cup.  Really adds something specail to the tea.  For Cinderella make strawberry mice.  Buy strawberries with long stems for the tail.  Dip the strawwberry in white chocolate.  Use mini chocolate chips for the eyes and nose.  Draw on pink ears and black whiskers with food color markers.  I make theese all the time for friends, maybe I should start a business lol.

I planned one for a friend. We tried to make it like a formal "tea party" with little sandwiches and desserts.



Sandwiches: We made grilled cheese, pb&j, cream cheese and jelly then cut them with heart and star shaped cookie cutters.



we also had a chocolate fondu (hershey kiss shaped one - really cute) and had them dip pretsel sticks and marshmallows and strawberries in it.



Some places like whole foods has mini desserts - and the warehouse stores have mini appetizers like quiche.



For "cake" you can have them decorate individual cupcakes - get pink & white sugar sprinkles that are glittery.



I want to be a kid birthday party planner! Can you tell - I can think of more if you want!!!

I realize this is an old post, but maybe these suggestion may help anyone else looking for ideas for a princess party. When my daughter turned 3 she was totally princess and hello kitty everything so we had a combo party. My sisters and I made tissue paper balls to hang, of varying colors, which you can find on line at You Tube or Martha Steward sights. You stack various layers of tissue paper then fold them back and forth like a fan, staple the middle and then puff up each single sheet, half to one side then half to the other side. Then print off a favorite character of hers and tape it to one of the big puff balls then hang from the ceiling on a string. (Important-Tie the string around the middle after you staple there and before you puff up the layers)
Also get a mettle baking tube for cooking your own bread in the oven. A circular one will do but we also had heart shaped as well. The circular tube was easier to pop the bread out of. We added food coloring to make the bread doe pink before baking it. The little girls loved the pink sandwiches. We also got foam party crowns from the dollar store and jewel stickers so the girls could make there own crowns.
Hope that helps out anyone else who needs some ideas.

Football is easy - here, it's all about the superbowl - but there, different football??? ha - you never know. I know the old Dr. Who on TV.... I'll have to research the game - isn't it mytery / spy? If so, you can give them clues to solve the mystery. If you have a link for the game - send it to me sometime and I'll think about it. This is the type of silly stuff that makes me happy doing!!!
