In-person princess parties!

Princess-themed parties have been around for a long time, but the sensation of Anna and Elsa has given the trend a dramatic boost.

Tiny Diva Princess Party offers a variety party options with characters from Frozen, including a single princess for $175, two characters for $300 (Anna and Elsa or Anna and Kristoff) or a cast of four (Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf) for $500. Characters bring music, books, activities and goodie bags. Premium Theatrical Story Time packages ($200 to $450) include singing princesses who retell the story of Frozen, sing-a-long style. Rock-star divas, fairies and other storybook princesses are also available for parties. 

Tiny Diva performs at events and pageants throughout the region, too. June events included a theatrical show at the Mall of America Hard Rock Cafe and an Enchanted Princess Cruise on Lake Minnetonka. Tiny Diva will be back at the Hard Rock Cafe Aug. 26 with a diva-themed party. 

Pretty Princess Parties — serving the Twin Cities and the Duluth area, offers a variety of princesses, including the Frozen sisters, as well as Snow White, Cinderella, Jasmine, Sofia the First, Tinkerbell, Rapunzel, Belle and Ariel. Super heroes such as Spiderman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Ninja Turtles are also available.

Parties — starting at $165 per hour — include a birthday gift, stories, songs, games, face painting, tiara decorating, photo opportunities and goodie bags. Pretty Princess Parties will host a Fairy Tale Ball at 5 p.m. Nov. 14 in Medina. Geared toward ages 3 and older, the three-hour event will include sweet treats, music by a DJ, dancing and photo ops. Tickets are $15 to $35.
