Party decor fit for a princess!

Another very popular little girl theme for parties is "princesses!"

Pretty dresses, crowns, magical wands, fairies, and even frogs! There are lots of fun ideas for us to work with.

Anne McGovern, CBA, of Elegant Balloons in New York, U.S.A. captures the essence of this theme perfectly with her princess, centrepiece designs using the 18" ‟Princess Tiara” Microfoil® balloon, dressed with tulle & feathers!

I created this fun princess castle entrance backdrop for a photo shoot to promote the Rachel Ellen - Birthday Princess range of balloons and Partyware. 

The colours are vibrant and bold. For this decor, I used Caribbean Blue, Pink, and Wild Berry as these colours complimented the balloon and party range perfectly! 

I have also made a version of the lovely ‟Birthday Princess” that stands approximately 4ft tall (1.2m).
