Planning a princess party for your little one can be an exciting and overwhelming experience, but with a little organization and preparation, it doesn't have to be stressful. At Joy's Princess Parties NYC, we've helped plan countless magical princess parties, and we've put together a comprehensive checklist to help you plan and prepare for the perfect princess birthday party.
As a child, there is nothing quite like meeting your hero.
Whether it's a princess, superhero, or any other beloved character, the experience can be truly magical and leave a lasting impact on a young person's life.
At our princess party company, we have the privilege of bringing these childhood heroes to life for children's birthday parties and other special events.
We understand the importance of creating authentic and memorable experiences for the children, and we strive to make each party as special and magical as possible.
But what is it about meeting a childhood hero that leaves such a lasting impact? For many children, these characters represent hope, bravery, and the power of imagination. Meeting a hero in person allows children to connect with these ideals on a deeper level and feel empowered by their presence.
In addition, meeting a hero can create lasting memories that children will cherish for years to come. It's a moment that they will likely never forget, and it can even inspire them to be their own hero in their own unique way.
At our princess party company, we understand the power of meeting a childhood hero. That's why we take our role as entertainers very seriously, and why we strive to create the most authentic and memorable experiences possible for the children we serve. If you're looking to bring a little magic to your child's special day, consider booking with us and giving them the opportunity to meet their hero in person.
We are absolutely amazed by how much everyone LOVES Encanto!
The party requests have been flooding in daily for princess parties with the characters from the new movie.
So of course, we got to work!
We are so excited to announce Maribel will be debuting with Joy's Princess Parties in May!
Starting May 15th, you can book Maribel for your birthday party in NYC.
She brings the magic of the miracle to life for your little ones!
We won't talk about Bruno, but we certainly will sing about him!
You can expect fun story time, amazing singing, dancing, games and more when you invite our Maribel to your party.
See you soon, New York!

It'll be getting warm soon here in NYC and we are so excited for outdoor princess parties to come back!
Just like our favorite snowman, the princesses love summer!
Our favorite suggestions for planning outdoor parties are below:
There are so many amazing parks in NYC, they always make a great party location. Choose a location that has enough space for dancing and other princess activities!
You may also want to consider the environment that will be in your photos when picking the location. For example, princess parties at a park are a lovely idea - but watch out for those NYC trashcans in every party photo!
You may also want to consider being out of direct sunlight for perfect birthday party photos!
Consider the ground - is it wet, dirty, muddy? You may want to consider a different area to keep the kiddos and princesses clean!
"Bruno says it looks like rain..."
Nothing ruins an outdoor birthday party like bad weather!
Be sure to check the weather in advance.
At Joy's Princess Parties, our princesses have very flexible rescheduling policies, but we always suggest having a back up plan in case in rains.
Such as a covered or indoor party area for the kids and princess to stay dry.
Or, at the very least, a rain date for your party in case of bad weather.
- Party Decorations
How do you decorate for an outdoor princess party?
Well, the great thing about park parties, is the background is often royal and fairytale enough!
You can also always throw a Cinderella themed tablecloth over a picnic table, and tie blue balloons to it or a nearby tree! Or for a Beauty and the Beast party, decorate with real roses! Crepe paper makes great DIY jellyfish for an Ariel Under the Sea party.
Princess party decorations are also a great idea to help signal the princess entertainer to your birthday party when there are other parties occurring at the same time in the same general area.
When the children's entertainer sees those Frozen balloons, Elsa knows which princess party she's attending!
(Or sometimes we see the birthday girl in their matching Elsa dress and we instantly know which little girl is celebrating with us today!)
Whatever you choose, you always know that Joy's Princess Parties is the best princess entertainment in NYC and takes care of all the entertainment.
After you've picked your date, location, and decorations, all you need to do is relax and enjoy the party while our princesses delight the children with magical birthday party activities!
We hope to see you soon!
Love & Wishes,
Joy's Princess Parties

He's silly... he's frozen... he's got a carrot nose.... That's RIGHT!
We will be offering your favorite snowman as a puppet add-on starting Dec. 15th.
But of course, we couldn't just offer a puppet to show up - Joy's Princess Parties always knows how to put on a show.
That's why our new puppet comes with a cute 20 minute interactive show & game:
Wanna Build A Snowman?
A chilly rescue adventure where the kids will be the stars and help us build & bring our snowman to LIFE magically!
Can they find all the objects to build the snowman?
This new party activity is sure to keep all the little ones giggling every step (or snowman hop!) of the way!
After the game & show portion is over, the puppet & puppeteer stays for photos and interactions for the rest of the party, joining in all the fun dancing & games with the princesses!
We hope to see YOU at one of our MAGICAL parties soon!

We're sooo sooo sooo excited to announce we are finally throwing a new princess event in NYC!
Our last princess ball was in 2018 - and we have been missing the hugs, laughter, and dancing!
Joy's Princess Parties is so excited to be partnering with our dear friends, A Dream is A Wish Parties.
Owners Joy Smith and Michaela Vivona have been working tirelessly to make sure every detail of our royal princess ball is a dream come true for your little princess. Both have extensive experience in children's events, birthday parties, and both come from a theatrical background.
We've chosen a gorgeous venue to make your little one feel like they've stepped into a fairytale.
Renaissance Event Hall in Long Island City is the perfect place for our children's event in NYC.
Descend like Cinderella down the stairs to the ballroom where all the fun and magic is waiting.
There, the princesses will be waiting to crown your child like the little royal they are, sprinkle pixie dust and pose for photos. Guests can receive autographs from princesses, dance with the princesses, and enjoy singing performances and games.
But wait- we have so many more surprises in store!
We won't spoil it all here, we want you to experience the magic for yourself!
Check out this amazing opportunity to meet princesses, and wow your little one with fun kid's actvities and entertainment in NYC!
