- Get inspired for a magical party with Enchanted Entertainment using our Canon Selphy Square
Once upon a time, in a kingdom far far away,
There lived a royal guardian who wished to plan the perfect enchanted celebration.
Kelsey from Enchanted Entertainment shares a few tips and ideas on how to plan the perfect royal party.
Surround your guests with enchantment as soon as they arrive at your party with a royal welcome. Give your front door a makeover with themed décor by printing of a few photos of the birthday princess or prince! Canon Selphy Square QX10 prints are water and dust proof to prevent smears and fading, so this magical photo will sparkle and shine for the whole party.
Bonus Tip: this can be a wonderful craft activity for you to do ahead of time with your children! Encourage your family to get creative together and draw or design their own decorations to display.
Soon your castle will be overrun with tiny princesses, princes, pirates, fairies and superheroes. You wouldn't want to forget anyone's name so snap a picture of guests upon arrival and write their name on the photo, don’t forget their royal title! These could be either displayed on a decorative wall, or worn by guests as name tags pegged on by a craft peg or stuck on by the print’s adhesive backs.
Another super easy decorative element that you can design and craft yourself are regal buntings.
The only items that you’ll need are ribbon, craft pegs and your favourite photo prints which can be sent directly from your phone with the Canon Selphy App.
Jazz up the theme by printing images of glass slippers, a twinkling tiara or fiery dragon!
Keep your royal guests entertained by challenging them to seek for special treasures hidden around the place. Snap a photo of royal items that tie in with the theme, print them off and pin them up on a board.
Some suggestions include...
An ocean seashell?
A fairy-tale story book?
Chocolate pirate coins?
It could even be a jar of fairy dust, a tiara or soft toy!
With the amazing quality that comes with the Selphy Square QX10, children can release their inner pirates and hunt for the treasure with ease. And hopefully, you will have a moment of peace!
Now that the sugar rush has worn off a bit, it’s time change up the games.
Print out photos of your child’s favourite fairy tale characters, get them to close their eyes and select a photo. The photo is held over their head, so they can guess who they are!
“Do I have golden hair?”
“Do I fly on a magic carpet?”
“Do I have magical snow powers?”
The questions (and magical moments) are endless!
There are so many choices for you to choose from; from princesses to princes, animal sidekicks, fairies, pirates, or even an original character. Imagination is truly a magical thing.
Nothing compares to that special moment where they first see their favourite fairy-tale character arrive at their birthday party. To make the memories even more special we recommend snapping a photo of the birthday child with their new magical friend.
If you are lucky, your friends may start inviting princesses and princes to their birthdays too, so your child can begin a whole photo collection! Be sure to pack the portable Selphy Square QX10 for the next celebration just in case a new royal character makes an appearance.
Commemorate these special occasions when you’re surrounded by friends and family by encouraging all your guests to take a photo with the birthday girl or boy; print it out and get them to write a special message beneath the picture. This message could be praise, words of encouragement or royal advice for adventures ahead.
Show your guests how much you appreciate them with a special gift to take home! Pack a magical gift bag with themed goodies and add a party photo of each child, so their special smiles can always be remembered. We love packing lollipops, a balloon and a magic wand.
And finally... don’t forget a family photo to capture all of those special memories forever!
