Remember these Princess Party Candy Necklace favors?

Princess Candy Necklace Party Favors | Five Marigolds

Well, I’m all about upcycling my work, so I made a few modifications so we can use them for EClaire’s classroom Valentines. The party favors have been such a hit among all my readers, so I’ve decided to offer these up as a free printable, as well.

Eve’s Princess Party

It’s official: Eve is 4 years old, and she had a birthday party fit for a princess.

You’ve already seen the custom favors I prepared here and here (for less than $2 total!); now take a look at the rest of the party.

We created an extremely inexpensive table setting by purchasing five plastic tablecloths in two different colors from the dollar store. You can replicate the look by using  one color of tablecloth for your backdrop and base tablecloth. Then, use the three contrasting tablecloths to create the “curtains” and top tablecloth.  I Cut 12″ sections from the bottom of the curtains for the bows. Then, I bustled the uppertablecloth and secured it with safety pins. I used a 12″ strip of the base tablecloth to create the bow on the table. Voila! A super cute tablescape for just $5.

Next, I created a custom Princess Silhouette. Remember the silhouettes I made for the girls’ room? I made an easy modification in PhotoShop by making the background and silhouette our party colors. I labeled it “Princess Eve” using my favorite Jellyka Delicious Cake font. This time I had it printed at Costco for just $2.99 and reused the frame we scored at JoAnn’s for $3.99.

To make a special napkin ring, I used the leftover napkins from ‘Belle’s Bow Birthday Party and made these little princess dresses.  Cute, right? To make them:

  1. Make two folds on your napkin so the two outer edges meet in the middle.
  2. Then fold it one more time so that those two folds now touch back-to-back (and the side with those original outer edges is face out).
  3. On the folded side, cut a “V” into the napkin.
  4. Secure with a bow or glue a small piece of paper to secure, if desired.

That’s it! A festive napkin ring for no additional cost than the napkins and tableware you would have already supplied.

The center of attention on our Princess Party table setting was a sweet princess cake I got from our local bakery, Sweet Pea Cakes.  I then topped it with a gold paper tiara I made using scrapbook paper from JoAnn’s on my Silhouette SD.

Princess Party Favors: Candy Necklace Cards

For Eve’s Princess Birthday Party, I was going for a generic princess feel rather than a Disney princess kind of feel. As part of that, I wanted to create some custom party favors. I didn’t really find anything out there I loved for purchase, so I went about creating my own.

You already saw the Candy Button Crown favors I made for the party. Today, I’m sharing the hit of the party – Candy Necklace Cards. I’d seen a similar concept online, but nothing princess themed. So, I went about creating these myself in PhotoShop, using hair and dress colors that somewhat inspired by Disney princesses, but with look that still felt sweet and unbranded.

I love how they turned out.  On the front I printed these sweet princesses on heavy cardstock.

I simply cut a slit on each side, then hooked the candy bracelet on the card.Princess Candy Necklace Party Favors | Five Marigolds

The best part? This favor is very inexpensive – 10 favors for just $1 when you buy the candy bracelets from the Dollar Tree candy section, like I did. Or, buy them in bulk. You can package them in clear cellophane from the craft store.

I have no shame in sharing that I’m already planning to recycle these babies for Valentine’s Day cards, bagged in cellophane . What do you think? Would your little princess love to receive these as a party favor or Valentine? Would you like a printable copy of this for your little girl?
