Once Upon A Time Royal Princess Ball
Once Upon A Time Royal Princess Ball Review by Play & Go
Today I had the honour of taking my littlest person to her first ever ball. Miss 2 and I attended as Royal Guests to the Once Upon A Time Royal Princess Ball at the Krystal Palace.
The world of princesses, fairies, glitter and sparkly things is relatively new to our house so this was something of a first for me too. This promised to be a lavish ball with food, dancing … and real princesses! From the moment the invitation landed in my inbox I began to wonder what a Royal Princess Ball might mean to a little princess fan.
I’m a bit of an old-hand when it comes to “boy stuff”
I know my way around a light sabre and have watched all the Star Wars episodes many times over and every LEGO movie. I know all about the excitement of catching a new Pokemon, making the basketball team or getting to meet Eddie Betts and having your football autographed. And we have been through the dinosaur stage, the Bob the Builder stage, the Octonauts stage and now the brave new world of Minecraft and other video games. The fairytale books and Disney princess movies have only recently begun to invade our house.
Already a sea of pink and sparkle is starting to take over.
The Once Upon A Time Royal Princess Ball is a hugely popular event and in the build-up, children across Adelaide were getting their tiaras dusted off and ballgowns ready to swirl on the dance floor.
A Grand Ballroom fit for royalty
Without giving away too many details it was a beautiful morning and it was easy to get swept up in the magic of the event. The royal princesses were beautiful, the Grand Ballroom looked very elegant with its fairylights and chandeliers, and it felt like a lot of hard work had gone into transforming the venue into a ballroom fit for royalty.
After the royal princesses entered the room and greeted their guests they invited the children to come and join them on the dance floor. And before you could say Prince Charming there was a dance floor full of little royal guests dancing with their favourite fairytale royal characters, and feeling like they were princesses or princes themselves.
It was fabulous to see the children delighting in this world of make believe and I can see that for princess fans this will be a memory that they will cherish forever. Miss 2 looked suitably dazzled by the fairytale magic of it all and she was excited to recognise many of the royal characters.
If you missed out on tickets this year my advice would be to get in early next year – keep an eye on our website for the details of when tickets go on sale and subscribe to our email newsletters if you haven’t done so already.
