Planning a Sofia the First Princess Party

DISCLOSURE: We received these free products in order to host the Disney Side @Home Celebration in a partnership with Disney Parks and MomSelect. All opinions expressed here are our own.

Every girl dreams of being a princess. I know I did. I know our girls do. Thanks to Disney, they got to be princesses for a day with their friends!

We were selected to host our SECOND Disney Side @Home Celebration party. The theme: Sofia the First! It was perfect because our girls love watching the Disney Jr. show. Lil Tank pretends she’s Sofia and Monkey is her older sister, Amber.

Of course, the ingredients for the best parties include food, games and friends. We had it all!


It started with us. The girls dressed in their princess costumes. Even our dog and I got into the theme. I brought out my tiara from my wedding.

The rest of the decor was complimentary of Disney. We were expecting 10 princesses so we put together all of our kid-sized tables. Each princess received a Sofia the First tiara, placement and lots of goodies in another Disney Jr. favorite - Doc McStuffins' box.


The spread included everything from DIY pizzas to cupcakes with the best cream cheese frosting. Trust me, it's really that good. Just check out our lone prince at the party devouring it. You can, too. Get the recipe here.


From Disney bingo to pinning the smile on Mickey, the activities centered around our happy place - the most magical place on Earth. It's easy enough to create your own games just like these.


What would a party be without friends? The great thing about these Disney Side @Home Celebration party kits is that they're geared for certain ages. The one we received was for the preschool group from 4-6 years old. It's the perfect range for both our girls and their friends. Because after all, who doesn't want to be a princess for a day?
