Medieval Movie Time
There's no shortage of princess-themed flicks to show at a royal birthday fete. Older girls will enjoy a double feature of movies like "The Princess Bride" or "The Princess Diaries." Guest lists that lean more toward single-digit ages might find animated princess movies to be a better fit. Blockbusters like the "Shrek" movies, "Beauty and the Beast" or "Cinderella" are longtime favorites of princess enthusiasts.
Although a normal television is perfectly fine for a birthday screening, you might choose to give the party a more cinematic feel by using a projector to show the films on a large wall instead. Be sure to serve up appropriate snacks, since all that swooning over Prince Charming and singing along with woodland animals helps kids work up an appetite. Princesses love dainty sandwiches, ice cream sundaes and fizzy pink punch.
