Does a pirate theme go with Princesses - does it matter?

I don't think it matters tbh. DD had been to a bunch of princess and pirate parties

Great ideas - I love the Shrek one! And frogs is just too witty for 3 year olds - maybe?

I don't think it matters. Our school fair this summer was themed Princesses and Pirates smile

Failing that they could be handsome princes, heroic knights, noble kings or super shreks!!

A friend of mine is interested to know what exactly does a princess party entail, besides dressing up as princesses and making all the party ware and decorations princess themed?

Are there particular games you can play, music, props you can use etc?

Thanks, hope someone can help. My friend's daughter is going to be 3.

DS1 wouldn't mind what kind of party it was as long as there were delicious cakes and crisps grin.

I think the knights idea is a good one and also try not to make the boys plates and cups pink, though again I'm sure they'd get over it if they were filled with delicious food/drink.

They're 3 - the boys will probably be perfectly happy as princesses...

I had a princess and heros theme for my daughters 4th birthday that went down a treat.
It was lovely to see them all dressed up and acting the part!

I have just been (well dd has) to a Princess and superhero party. Was great every child was dressed up and it really worked.

definitely pirates or superhero.
DS would have sulked if he'd been expected to be a princess at a 3rd birthday party.

is princesses and princes not the most obvious choice?

Ds went to a pirates & princesses party last weekend - the pirates had to rescue the princesses...
Ds went as a knight (in an anti-pirate mood), and looked fab smile - BUT I think the advantage of pirates is that the costumes are very easily bought/constructed - knights maybe slightly trickier?

We went to princess and pirates themed 3rd b'day party last weekend. Worked fine.
