Princess Party Invitations

Royal Announcement Invitations

Try using calligraphy (or a script-type font) on parchment paper, then rolling it up to make a scroll. Tie it with a satin ribbon. For an added touch, tie it to a tiara (Birthday Express has great princess tiaras - very affordable) and hand deliver to invited guests.

If you prefer not to use scrolls, seal your invitations with wax seals for an added touch of sophistication.

Pretty Princess Invitations

Another do-it-yourself option is to add your child's face to a princesses body. You can do this easily at faceinhole.com. Search for "princess" to see the options available. Print your photo creation and use it for the invitations. You can also take pictures of party guests and do the same for them, sending the finished photo along with the thank you note.
