Princess parties are becoming increasingly popular choices for little girls, in no small part due to the success of animated films such as Frozen which have resulted in major cult followings. Just as boys love pirates and superheroes, many a little girl loves to dream about growing up to be a princess, and hiring princess birthday party entertainers can be one way to make that wish come true.
It is critical, however, to make sure that you take the time to select the right entertainer for your party, in order to ensure the maximum of fun is had by all and that the minimum of parental and family stress is experienced when hosting a large group of excited children! With that said, here are a few tips on finding the right princess host for a birthday celebration.
First of all, it is worth remembering that experience is important when looking for princess birthday party entertainers for your event. Being able to handle a group of children is definitely not a skill that everyone has, so an entertainer that is practiced at this can generally yield much better results.
When browsing the internet or a local directory for a suitable entertainment provider for your birthday party, remember to do your research into just how many parties they have hosted so far, and how successfully they feel they can deal with a large number of hyperactive kids.
You may also wish to ask for testimonials if they are not already readily available on the website or in the brochure of the entertainment provider, as this can give you valuable insight on how successful the princess birthday party entertainers have actually been with real groups of children at a party.
In addition to experience, remember that the most successful entertainers – whether princesses, pirates, wizards, superheroes or other characters – will have a background in performance, be it dancing, singing or acting. A bubbly and outgoing personality along with the ability to perform is essential for keeping children engaged.
Whereas you can’t be trained in being a princess, you can be trained on how to perform well as one, so look for entertainers that are not shy in putting on a show, and can fulfil any dancing and singing requirements that may be expected in their role.
Next, check that the quality of the costumes and the props is of high enough standard to ‘wow’ the children at the princess birthday party. This is because to put on a believable show, everything should look as magical as possible, and truly resemble what children have seen in their favourite animated films, books and comics.
Ask the entertainment provider that you are thinking of hiring what kind of costumes they have available along with the props they provide for the children to enjoy. They may also supply items such as party bags, glitter tattoos, face painting, fairy dust and more, so be sure to ask what is included in each package.
Finally, for any boys that have been invited to the party, see if your princess birthday party entertainers of choice can also send along a male character to entertain those who are not so enchanted by princesses! Pirates and superheroes work well with boys that are guests at a party, although many party entertainment providers can offer any character of your choice.
When selecting an entertainer for your child’s princess-themed birthday party celebrations, be sure to check the experience of your host, as well as their performance background, as both these factors can have a huge impact on the success of your party.
Along with this, the best companies will ensure that you only receive performers wearing the best costumes and using fantastic props, ensuring that each and every child is utterly enchanted and has as much fun as possible.
