If you ask me, do I love Cinderella? It’s a big yes! To be honest,I like the social history aspects of the story. It tells us a lot about common peoples’ aspersions. It is at heart a love story, a rom com, finding your perfect match, reaching a happy ending.
Moving from childhood into adulthood, from dependence to Independence, from failure to success, from poverty to wealth. It’s a very old story, told over and over again, for over perhaps a 1000 years and likely more. There are many layers to the story and more versions to discover than can be counted.

Allow the fairy godmother to work her enchantment! Before attending the ball, guests must dress the part! Include activities at the party such as flower painting, flower picking, and flower crown making.
Then let the guests try on various amusing costumes. After the ball, guests will take home tons of fun party favors that they made themselves, as well as a slew of unforgettable memories!
As the party host, you may not have the skills to transform a pumpkin into a coach, but you can let the guests try! Purchase several large pumpkins (one for each guest) as well as four small pumpkins for each guest.
The smaller pumpkins can serve as the coach’s wheels, while the larger pumpkins can serve as the chariot’s body. Then, let the guests do the decorating! You could also make it a contest with prizes for the best coaches for added fun.
Your guests should feel as if they are getting ready for a royal ball, as in any good princess party. Set up nail, hair, and make-up stations for the princesses.
As fun take-home favors, I like the plastic comb in tiaras from Hobby Lobby’s party section. Don’t forget to add a little loose glitter for a magical touch. You could buy make-up and nail polish at the Dollar Tree and use it as a favor!
Buy or make a Cinderella themed piñata – a castle or glass slipper. Fill it with wrapped candies and small toys. To hit the piñata, get an old broom stick and tell the party guests that it is Cinderella’s old broom from when she lived with her step mother.
Give each party guest a light blue bag and let them decorate it with Cinderella stickers and their name. They can use the bags to collect the candy and prizes.
Fairy Godmother Quick Change Game
Help Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother dress her up for the ball. You will need two sets of clothes for this party game. 2 dressy dresses, high heel shoes, tiaras, wigs, a pumpkin, necklaces, clip on earrings, etc. and two clocks.
Put the two sets of clothes on one side of the party room and the two clocks on the other side of the room. Separate party guests into two teams and have them stand behind their clock.
The first person from each team will run to their pile of clothes, put them on (over their clothes), run back to their team and tag the clock (have it set at 1 minute to midnight) then back to the pile of clothes to take them off and back to their team where the next person in line will have a turn. Make sure the dresses are big enough to fit over the kids normal clothes.
Prince and Glass Slipper Chase
You will need a glass slipper or fancy high heel (Cinderella) and a blue ball (the Prince) for this game. Have the party guests sit in a circle and give Cinderella to one person and the Prince to the person opposite them in the circle.
Tell them that on “go” they will start to pass the objects around the circle clockwise and they are trying to have the Prince catch Cinderella. They will pass both objects fast around the circle trying to both keep Cinderella ahead of the Prince and also trying to catch Cinderella.
Cinderella Birthday Invitations
The first step in throwing a princess-worthy party is selecting the appropriate invitation. Your invitation will set the tone for the party before it even starts, creating excitement for your child’s special day. When they open these delightful Cinderella party invites, their friends will be delighted to see the theme already planned for them.
A simple printed invitation with all the appropriate wording, such as “Once upon a time,” and “royal ball,” will help set the tone. Hand-delivering and sealing the envelopes will add a personal touch.
