With or without software templates making your own invitations is not such a difficult task. You could use MS Word, or even just your rich text editor found in all windows operating systems. Simply choosing large bright text and using a few of the clip art images you found on the internet makes for great looking presentations.
When my younger daughter Hannah was in preschool, I noticed that parents would tuck birthday party invitations into the children's open cubby squares. Though this method did not present a problem when all children in a class were invited to a party, when some youngsters were invited and others were not - particularly when the invitations were in brightly colored envelopes - it was all-too-clear to the ones not invited that there was no envelope in their cubbyhole. In the preschool years, it's better for parents to hand the invitations directly to the other parents or caregivers. Or, if that's not possible due to work schedules, to bite the bullet and mail them. Better yet, to email the invitations if that's an agreeable alternative.
Lemon Loves Lime designs the cutest numbered birthday girl t-shirts that can be coordinated with a Lemon Loves Lime ruffle skort or a cute skirt. Ooh La La couture birthday dress is another cute option for a birthday girl dress.
A princess party theme gets right down to the food and beverages on offer. Only serve finger food which will allow the princesses to maintain their princess style and elegance. Overly messy foods should be avoided. Princesses are NOT messy! Finger sandwiches, some cookies, ham and cheese rollups, a fruit plate, etc, are always a good idea for a princess party. A cake is also important although care needs be taken to maintain the royal air. Ginger ale, fruit punch or some other beverages will work great.
One might think there's nothing more innocent and free spirited than the act of extending birthday party invitations. Nothing could be farther from the truth.
