If you have a little princess having a birthday soon, a Swan themed party might be the sweetest idea you will come across.
Planning a birthday party shouldn’t be stressful and I am here to guide you through simple yet pretty ideas on how you can host a lovely Swan Party to celebrate your little girl’s special birthday.
Establish a decor color palette
For a swan party, you can either opt for the usual pink and gold or pick a different color combo, such as mint + blush pink and gold as accent color. For a change, I went with the latter and loved how these three colors worked so well for this theme.
I paired a beautiful tissue tassel garland in coordinating colors with a DIY banner. I created it using printable swans and punched out glittered stars.
Select a party invitation
Choosing an invitation design to set the tone of the event is essential. It builds excitement and gives guests an idea of the type of party they will be attending. Make sure you mail the invitations out at least three weeks in advance.
Set up a dessert station
Dessert stations shouldn’t be over the top to be effective. The less the better. You really don’t need much to make the little guests happy. Cupcakes, cakes and cookies make the best treats for a birthday celebration and you can of course, have fun coordinating them with the theme.
Opt for a buttercream cake
Buttercream cakes are easy and always a crowd-pleaser! You can order it from your favorite cake designer and choose a fun technique that will go well with the style of your party. For an inexpensive way to decorate a cake, adorn it with our printable swan topper.
Light up your celebration
For the birthday girl, you can have a separate cake topped with a sparkler candle. Sparklers are a fun twist on traditional candles and it will sure make singing Happy Birthday extra memorable.
Spruce up store-bought cupcakes
Save yourself some time and pick up a few cupcakes at your local bakery. Make them look like million dollar treats by sprucing them up with adorable printable swans and glittered star toppers you can quickly whip up using a craft punch and toothpicks. Don’t forget the pretty cupcake liners to finish off the look.
Order coordinating cookies
Coordinating cookies are wonderful treats the guests always get excited about. You can order them to perfectly match the invitation or any other swan cookie design you lay your eyes on.
Set up a fun kids tablescape
Nowadays, you can find pretty paper supplies for any theme. These swan plates are the most gorgeous paper plates you will ever see! Pair them with coordinating cups, straws, pink cutlery and you will have a lovely tablescape the kids (and parents) will absolutely adore.
Send guests home with something sweet
Decorated cookies always make the perfect take-home favors. Simply place them in cookie boxes and attach our Swan thank you tags for a lovely touch.
