On the weekend we had so much fun hosting an “almost” slumber party.  The party was a Sleeping Beauty party and was so much fun.  

I say “almost” slumber party, since we had all the fun of a Princess slumber party – with new pj’s, watching Sleeping Beauty, an amazing popcorn snack bar, and a photo booth, but we sent our little friends home to sleep.  We also sent  along with a Princess breakfast all packed up “to-go” for them to enjoy in the morning.  It was so much fun.

Matching Princess PJs

We picked our date – a Friday night, and invited a few special friends.  Since it was an almost slumber party we started out with all matching Princess pajamas for all the girls.  These were so much fun and a great take-home favour for the girls (I love giving something useful).

Princess Photo Booth

I also picked up a Princess photo backdrop that came with great props, such a fun and simple way to do a photo booth at the party.  As soon as the girls arrived they changed into their matching pj’s.  

Sleeping Beauty Theatre

Then we invited them into our “theatre”.  We transformed our living room, by removing most of the furniture.

I strung up curtains to hide the kitchen, and decked out the couch with lots of gold and fur – the perfect Princess decor.

The wall behind the TV was decorated with fun bunting, in our pink and gold color scheme.  I made it out of scrapbook paper and created a few Princess bunting flags from paper plates.diy princess party bunting

And the fireplace got the Sleeping Beauty treatment too.  I made a curtain of pink tulle, and added a chalkboard with flashing Christmas lights.  I found the pictures of the fairies on-line, and added them for a little fairy magic.  

A little rose bush seemed like a fun detail, since Aurora was re-named Briar Rose by the fairies.  I also made a simple “Once Upon A Dream” banner, and added a little gold glitter for fun.

Sleeping Beauty “Make It Pink, Make It Blue” Popcorn Buffet

The star attraction was the Movie Popcorn Buffet.  Over the buffet I hung a pretty Princess chandelier, and for added sparkle I wound a string of tiny lights around it -it was so pretty.

My favorite scene from the movie has to be the fairies arguing over whether Aurora’s dress should be pink or blue, so I used this idea for the popcorn buffet.  One side was “Make it Blue” and the other was “Make it Pink”.Sleeping beauty party popcorn buffet

I made these fun free printables, get them here –Make it PinkMake it Blue, and set up lots of fun treats.  

We started out with popcorn – pink and blue of course, as well as caramel corn and regular popcorn.

Along with the popcorn, I added lots of fun candy add-ins, so everyone could personalize their snacks.

  • pink candies:  cotton candy, goldfish crackers, star marshmallows, sprinkles, jellybeans, chocolate coins, and chocolate balls

The girls used the pretty Princess cups to make their personalized popcorn mixes.Sleeping beauty themed party food

Sleeping Beauty Drinks

For drinks there was blue sports drink, or pink lemonade, in pretty bottles with paper straws, and Princess wands.

Princess Take Home Breakfast

One of my favorite details of our “almost” sleepover was to send the girls home with a special Princess breakfast to enjoy in the morning.

I used some gable boxes to hold all their goodies, and decorated them with some princess washi tape.  On the top of the boxes and tied with a bow was a thank-you card – since Princesses always remember a thank-you card, that had directions on the back for the breakfast.  Inside the boxes were breakfasts fit for a queen – or a Princess, lol.Sleeping beauty slumber party breakfast princess waffles 1

I made regular waffles and cut the tops to make them into crowns!  We also included an individual maple syrup, and “Briar Rose’s Berries” and some edible fairy dust!

I used little glass jars and combined pink sprinkles and some edible gold glitter.  The little princesses loved them.Sleeping beauty almost slumber party take home take out breakfast

Along with the waffles, I bought fun mini cereal boxes and added a pink spoon with some more washi tape, and a package of hot chocolate.  So much fun!
