Party Ideas: Once Upon A Time

By popular demand here is a guide for a Once Upon A Time Party! With the new season approaching now is a good time to get party planning. As always, I love to decorate but don’t like paying a lot for it so I’ve once again planned this around cost. Take from it what you will, leave a comment below if you have any suggestions or if you do have a Oncer party I want to see pictures! Make sure to check out my other party planning posts as well!

No party happens without Invitations!

Storybrooke Sign
Make sure your guest know they’re entering
Storybrooke! Make one at home, or print one
off the Internet.
Retro Disney Posters
To be honest, you’re better off printing these
at home unless you want them in really good quality.
If you’re just using them for the party, just print at home.

Either find them on the beach, or fork (pun intended)
out some cash. Note, sometimes they aren’t cheap.

Any party store or craft store will have crowns!
Everyone wants to feel like a princess right?

Themed Drinks
You can make any kind of drinks you want obviously,
just get creative with the naming. Example: Captain Hook’s Rum,
Love Potion, Spiked Apple Juice, or Wishing Well Water.

Candy Apples
Of course Candy Apples are a go to item. Though,
they are hard on the teeth so what I do is slice them up.

Cupcakes are always a good desert option, and easy!
You can decorate them like in the photo below, but they maybe
difficult. I’d recommend chocolate toppers as they are easier
to make.

Party Favors
Party favors are a dying art, but any good party has them.
Lotions and such are always good for a ladies party!
Get creative and name them as you’d like!
