Once upon a time, in a land not too far away, there were birthdays to be planned—and parents who need not delay. Costumed characters to come do crafts, paint faces and read a book—it was a true prince or princess for which they did look. Lucky for them, this fairy tale has a happy end. Read on for Atlanta’s best royals-for-hire that are sure to keep them royally engaged until the party’s end.


Peachtree Princess Parties
Depending on your budget (and little princess’ demands), you can book a variety of packages at this professional princess outfit. Book a thirty minute princess one-on-one visit ($99) complete with a sparkling manicure and story time to make her day extra special. Or, go all out with the “Royal Treatment” ($400) which includes a one hour visit with two princesses for up to 15 children, magical makeovers, a crown decorating craft, etiquette lesson, story time, and a sing-along and games. For an additional $12, custom goodie bags can be provided for each guest. Princesses not their thing? Check out Peachtree Pirate Parties perfect for swashbuckling boys and girls. Little buccaneers can enjoy a pirate naming ceremony, pirate tattoos, hat decorating and silly sing-alongs.

Atlanta Princess Parties
Storytelling, prince and princess lesson and princess coronation ceremony where they are taught how to be a princess (knight lesson included), princess music, face-painting or light make-up, picture posing and more are just some of the offerings from this outfit. If princesses don’t please your peanut, order up anyone from Hello Kitty to Superman from their cast of characters. Their Captain Jack Sparrow is a dead ringer for Depp.
