Did your daughter fall in love with Sofia the First, the Disney Princess who premiered in the Disney Junior original movie Once Upon a Princess? The newest member of the regal line-up was just a regular girl until King Roland fell in love with her mother, Miranda, and now she is royalty! Along with twin step-siblings, a new step-father and a new way of life, Sofia has a lot to learn and a new role to grow into.

With a beautiful lavender gown, a magical amulet that gives her special powers, jewels, a tiara and those adorable talking animals, it is no wonder why girls are clamoring to have this theme for their next party. In addition, the music that is played during the show is simply infectious! On top of all of the things Sofia has, she is genuinely kind to everyone she meets. Princesses have always been popular with girls, and a pint-sized one like Sofia is one that they girls all adore!
Here is how you can plan a Sofia the First party for your special girl.
Princess Sofia Invitations and Stamps
Every party needs a real invitation. Little kids should know the joy of getting an envelope in the mail addressed just to them! Sending out invitations that have the party them on it really sets the tone.
Why use boring stamps from the post office when you can really get into the party theme and create your own stamps! They will really make the invitation “pop”.
Imagine the delight that a little girl will have when she receives an actual piece of mail-addressed to her-with Sofia the First on the envelope!
This stamp is one of nine choices a fan of the purple princess has. It can be customized with different background colors.

When your guests arrive at the party, it should be fit for a princess! A pretty table will help put the girls in a royal mood.
