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

Hello dear Royal Readers,
It's another Holiday season in NYC! We love all the beautiful lights and decorations at this time of year!
Our princesses have been bundling up in their sleighs with their hot cocoa, ready to come give the warmest of hugs to you.
Christmas parties, holiday greetings, and caroling visits are our absolute favorite.
We are excited to announce that we have new magic coming to Joy's Princess Parties!
Balloon Twisting - We no longer offer just princess characters! Our highly trained, charismatic performers can now come to you as balloon artists for a cute add-on to any party!
We often hear the question - what can you do for a boy's party? And here is just the first magical step to offering more general entertainment that appeals to everyone!
A silly and entertaining balloon twister will visit your party and create all types of adorable, squishy balloon creatures, flowers, swords, hats, and more to delight the birthday child in your life.
We're introducing this new service at super reasonable rates - just $150 for an hour and unlimited balloon twisting.

Last, but not least... we have an incredible new PUPPET joining us at 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!
Joy's Princess Parties
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!

We just announced our newest princess event!
A Virtual Valentine Princess Ball on Feb. 13th
I've always loved hosting princess events. In the past, we used to host amazing princess balls - with up to 10 princesses in attendance, a photo booth, professional dj & lighting, fair maidens to run the event, gorgeous wedding venue as the royal ballroom. These days were always a dream come true to me, as we danced and sang the day away with hundreds of little ones. A perfect princess party!
Unfortunately, we are currently unable to host any in-person princess events due to covid.
However, on the bright side - our virtual parties have been a huge hit!
We hopped on board the zoom trend the second the pandemic hit, and worked tirelessly to make these virtual events feel just as magical as the princess parties we used to host.
We experimented with sound & lighting, best camera angles, ordered backdrops to enhance the magic, and rewrote our shows in a way that made our highly interactive parties come to life even through a computer screen.
We're so grateful to continue our birthday magic through the power of virtual zoom parties!
And now, we're hosting our first ever virtual princess ball!
It is our honor to invite you to an adorable royal ball filled with love and laughter.
We're bringing out our best characters and our most talented NYC performers to make this event happen and continue to make dreams come true!
We would love to see you there!
Tickets will be available on Feb. 1st, get them before they are gone!
Your Fairy Godmother,
When we launched virtual options a month ago, we had NO idea how popular they would be!
We just finished a weekend of 12 virtual princess parties! Whew!
We can't thank you all enough for the support and love we've been experiencing during this time.
It's been so very delightful to see all of the little smiles and laughter.
While Covid-19 has certainly shown us all challenges - challenged you as parents, teaching and working from home, challenged the little ones who are learning at home and having parties & events cancelled, challenged our local businesses as they find ways to try to keep above the water through these changes - we just want to give you all a big virtual hug and say thank you. Thank you for all you do. Thank you for inviting us into your homes and your lives and your little ones' special days. It means more than we can say that pixie dust & magic can still prevail even during scary times.
Stay Safe everyone and remember - "No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dream that you wish will come true..."
We have loved seeing all your smiling faces through our magic mirror over the past month.
It's been a little bit of a challenge and a learning curve for all of us, transitioning over to digital and online services, but ultimately, fun!
We've been taking this time to come up with exciting options for you all to still enjoy the magic of princesses.
And here is our latest venture!
Virtual Princess Party on May 16th @ 1pm!
Join your favorite Ice Queen for sing a longs (including her new songs!), help her tell a silly story time, learn a fun princess dance and get the opportunity to ask her questions and meet & greet!
We are keeping this first event capped at just 15 children to keep it super special for them.
Tickets will go on sale on Friday at 7pm, here on our website at the "Book a Party" tab.
Just $12/child, and $6 to add a sibling to the same screen.
We will use zoom as our platform, which means the princess will be able to see and hear the children and interact with them! And of course, since it's a virtual party, even your friends who aren't local can join!
We would love to see each one of you there!
Keep your eye out for more virtual events up coming and other amazing online activities for kids!
Love and wishes,
Joy's Princess Parties NYC
