I am SO excited to share a fun Disney princess makeover spa party with you that I put together last weekend. We invited a few of my daughter’s friends over for a day of pampering, soaking, scrubbing, nail-painting, and treat-eating!
I’m not sure who had more fun- me or the girls! I’ll be sharing with you some of the ideas I came up with to give these cute little princesses the royal treatment they deserve!
To get ready for the party, I bought a Disney Princess CD that was filled with lots of princess songs from various Disney movies. The music was playing outside on speakers throughout the whole party, and it was fun to see the girls singing along to their favorite songs!
I wanted all of the girls who came to have the feel of going to a real spa, so I bought them all white robes, and embellished them with sparkling gold crowns. They turned out AMAZING, and I’ll write a tutorial for them soon.
The girls were SO excited to arrive and be given their very own princess robe that they could keep! They kept asking their moms if they could wear them every day when they got out of the bathtub. 🙂
After each girl was given her robe, she got to choose a pair of spa pedicure sandals that I made out of foam, just like the ones that you get when you get a pedicure at the salon.
The craft foam that I bought at Walmart had an adhesive side with a paper backing, so the top piece was sticky once the paper was pulled off.
I placed lots of sparkly princess jewels on the table and let them embellish their spa shoes by simply sticking them on.
They were so cute in their sparkly shoes, and loved the activity!

Next the girls saw the giant Disney princesses coloring pages and begged to color. I had planned on the coloring pages to be a filler if we needed an extra activity, but they were really excited about it, so I let them color for a bit, and then take their pictures home to finish coloring.
I set up a long table, and filled half of it full of spa supplies that we would be using (and that the girls would be taking home for favors). I used my collection of apothecary and glass jars to hold Epsom salts (that they sprinkled in their foot soak), cotton balls, Q-tips, cotton rounds, nail files, tissues, rolled up pink and white towels, Disney princess lip gloss (one for each girl), and cute Disney princess metal buckets that they put all of their party favors in.
They were the most excited about the Disney princess lip gloss, and could barely contain their excitement at choosing which princess lip gloss they wanted!
I bought a mirror for them to apply their own princess lip gloss, which they were pretty happy about.
I made some adorable “nail polish” treats out of marshmallows, pink candy wafers, and Tootsie Rolls…. SO cute!
The other half of the table was full of apples, bananas, grapes, crackers, mini cupcakes, lemon cookies, candy necklaces, and water for the girls.
They ate it all on some pretty Disney princess plates, drank their fruit smoothies out of Disney princess cups, and of course they had to use pink silverware to eat with! To cover up the label on the water bottles, I simply wrapped gold Duck Tape around it. Nice and easy!
After coloring and eating the girls were split up into a few different stations- the princess foot soak and scrub, manicures and pedicures, and facials. At the princess foot soak and scrub, the girls put their feet in warm soapy water for about 10 minutes to let their feet soak, and then had a peppermint plum foot scrub applied to their feet. Their feet were massaged, rinsed and dried off, and then moisturized with their choice of scented lotion from part of my lotion collection.
I bought some big plastic tubs, but they only carried darker colors, so I had to lighten them up! I used the same die that I used on the crowns on their robes, and then glued it onto each plastic tub. So easy, but a great way to spruce up their tubs to go with the overall theme of the party.
The facial station was a lot of fun too! Each girl was able to get a green facial mask put on her face (along with some cucumbers for the eyes of course), and then relax on a chaise lounge. I overheard one of the girls , who said, “This is so nice and relaxing!” I had to agree, and wish that I could have taken off my shoes and had a little mom spa party where the girls pamper us! Not sure why, but the girls weren’t thrilled with that idea for some reason… 😉
At the manicure and pedicure station the girls got to choose which nail polish color they wanted on their fingers and toes. Then they got a little hand and arm massage by my older daughter, complete with their choice of scented lotion. They loved it, especially this cute little Snow White! While they were getting their nails and toes done, I made up two batches of berry smoothies for them. No spa party would be complete without fruit smoothies!
After each girl had enough to eat and had finished each of their “treatments,” I had a table set up with pretty beads and plastic beading cord for them to make their own bracelets and necklaces. They wanted to make as many as possible before their moms came back to pick them up!
This Disney princess spa party was a HUGE success, and was so much fun to put together! The girls had so much fun together getting the royal treatment at my little day spa, and I loved seeing all their big smiles the whole time.
When they left, they each got to take home their own princess bath robe, the Disney princess lip gloss, the Disney princess bucket, filled with their own spa and bath supplies, and a princess crown, heart, or star balloon.
They girls even grabbed handfuls of Epsom salts on the way out because they wanted to put them in their baths since they said they made their feet feel so soft! 😉
I hope this gives you some party ideas for the little girl(s) in your life.
Here are some important things to remember when planning a birthday party, to make sure you haven’t left anything out.
First you will want to choose a date, time, location, and theme. Next decide who you want to invite to the party, and get out those invitations in plenty of time! What will you feed your guests? You’ll need to figure out the tableware, decorations and balloons, games, party favors, and the schedule of events for the party. Don’t forget to order a cake (if you’re not baking one), food, and balloons in plenty of time.
Will your child wear a special outfit or costume for their big day? Don’t forget the present for the birthday child, along with a card and gift wrap. Make double sure that cameras are charged and ready to go- you don’t want to miss those great birthday party shots!
Assign someone the task of writing down the gifts that your child received and who gave it to them so you can write out those important thank you notes to family and friends. Once all of these things are completed, you can be sure that your party will be a smashing success!
