For older kids, you can have the party at any of the locations mentioned above, plus more. But party guests are more demanding at this age, so you need to be careful in choosing something not too childish. Parties for older children tend to be more expensive and could last an entire day, so plan accordingly.
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.
Be creative with the food! While birthday cake and punch is fine, for a casual gathering, it doesn't take much more effort to make the party food really shine. If you are worried about budget, you can ask each party guest to bring a favorite party dish (or something reminiscent of the birthday boy or girl), to add as a potluck favorite. A taco, soup or potato bar, can feed a lot of people, without putting a major dent in the budget, and best of all most of the food can be prepared ahead. For a really easy solution for food, you can have the party at the birthday celebrant's favorite restaurant, just be sure to let the each of the party guests know the menu prices, if you won't be picking up the tab.
A popular way to celebrate the birthday is to have a themed centenary festivity. Many companies provide complete themed party arrangement. One can book the themed birthday gathering outside as well as in the house. For arranging the birthday gathering, one can use the different party theme sets.
You can do everything in the comfort of your own home. At home, you don't have to worry about the time limit and you can do pretty much whatever you want. However, you will have to clean, cook and entertain the guests, so be prepared to be exhausted! Parks are great for kids birthday parties as well, but you need to keep the weather in mind. Another option is to rent an in-door venue. Some places will only provide space while you have to bring your own food and entertainment. But you won't have to worry about cleaning before and after. Some kids birthday party venues are all-inclusive meaning they will provide space, food and entertainment.
