Most children grow up with vivid imaginations, and schools, teachers and parents help them develop this creative skill: to be able to fantasize and become the best they can be. For most little girls being a princess is a wonderful fantasy. And little boys want to be pirates, superman, batman and the like.
Fortunately there are companies that bring this fantasy to life for the little ones, right in their homes or venue that the parents may want to hire for the occasion. Some companies are very experienced and have done these parties for many years. Therefore the best princess party will be brought to the client by a company that understands all details related to children’s parties. They will know which characters are the ones that children love best and they know how to gear parties to the relevant age groups.
A child of 4 may not necessarily like the fantasy or princess character that will be attractive to a 10-year old, for example. Experienced companies will be able to advise their clients about a number of issues related to the party – also the best fairy tale character to portray. When you want to book a princess party for your child, it is often advisable to deal with a company that has done this for a number of years.
The company will make sure they send an entertainer with experience to the party. You should find out beforehand how experienced the entertainer that will portray a certain favourite character is. Can she act? Is she a singer that will keep the children interested? Maybe she is a good dancer.
These are some of the qualities the client should be looking for in the entertainer. After all, you do not mind to pay the company for the entertainer and the services – but you want someone with experience at the princess party, someone the kids can relate to, and vice versa.
Good companies ensure that the parents have little to worry about. They arrive with everything they need to make the party a success. The parents only make sure the kids arrive and they have enough to eat and nibble on.
The hostess/entertainer will arrive before the time and make sure everything is properly set up for the party. Depending on the princess theme, she will arrive in the correct costume(s), with the appropriate music and other party aids for the children. She will immediately introduce herself and help the kids to relax.
Then the princess party can start. Depending on the theme the routine may vary in terms of the different parties. Some will have a lot of singing and dancing – or acting – while others will concentrate on getting the kids involved in all sorts of games and interactive play.
The entertainer will keep the kids busy with all sorts of activities that keep them occupied. There may be games specifically developed to suit a certain theme that belongs with a specific party. If you host a Cinderella party, for instance, the entertainer will make sure she involves the kids in games meant for the Cinderella theme, and so on.
A successful princess party will leave the kids excited with memories of their favourite characters – often with attendance certificates and a crown for the birthday girl. Sometimes all of them are turned into little princesses for the afternoon with fairy dust sprinkled everywhere, and with happy, smiling little faces singing Happy Birthday at the end!
