It’s time for everyone’s favorite: the glitzy and glamorous and adorable world of kids’ princess parties. I totally wanted to be a princess when I was a kid – that, and a highly skilled, top secret government spy. I used to go out into the garden and try to crawl into the house on my belly without anyone seeing me. Not very successful, so maybe princess is for me instead. Not a bad trade, I suppose. Anyway, let’s dive into how you can create Princess Parties Fit for Royalty in New York.
Princess Character Performers
WE, yes we, are a company that provides talented and trained performers who portray beloved princess characters. These performers interact with the children, tell stories, sing songs, and participate in various activities to create an immersive and enchanting experience. I mean, amongst other amazing entertainment like face-painting and balloon art (hello, duo!) but for a princess party? Our Ariels, Belles, Elsas and Jasmines are definitely the way to go.
Royal Tea Parties
Royal tea parties complete with elegant tea sets, finger foods, and treats fit for a princess. Children can enjoy a delightful tea time while engaging with their princess characters. And you can find venues across New York that can create awesome tea party vibes for the little princesses. Some of our favorite venues for tea are:

What age are princess parties for?
Just about any age! The most popular is as young as 1 years old, all the way to 13. However, if you’re swirling in high society, then debutante balls set the stage for girls of 16 to still have parties fit for a princess.
