Although modern little girls have a desire to be astronauts and explorers most will spend at least part of their childhood dreaming of being a princess.
Over the years Disney have provided us with an impressive collection of films containing royal heroines. Eleven of these cartoon ladies have earned their place on the official list of Disney Princesses and they are Ariel, Aurora, Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Merida, Mulan, Pocahontas, Rapunzel, Snow White and Tiana. Mulan is an interesting exception as the others were either born or married in to royalty but brave Mulan has managed her place despite meeting neither of these criteria.
It was actually princess Snow White who hit the big screens in the Christmas of 1937 and became Walt Disney’s first feature length film, she also has the accolade of being the first full length cel-animated movie.
If you have a budding princess the chances are she would like her own palace … but what if you don’t have a king’s ransom to spend? Well once upon a time Children’s Rooms sourced products to create a Princess themed bedroom that we knew would suit all budgets and I am going to show you how you can achieve a result to please royalty for less than £75 leaving you change for the all important tiaras and bubble bath.
You are not restricted to Disney Princesses when you choose from our bedding sets in this themed range as it contains generic designs too. Both cover all three sizes from junior/toddler through single to double, and you don’t actually need a large bed for that double duvet as you can drape it over a standard single sized frame to give extra snuggly warmth or focus more on the design.
We’ve chosen the vibrant Boulevard single bedding set, at just £10.95, which features three of the Disney Princesses and gives you plenty of scope when you are picking out paint colours.
This particular duvet cover is cut from rotary fabric which features a repeat pattern, and this keeps the cost down for the customer, but you can also buy panel print bedding in all sizes and they have a set image centralised on them. Character bedding works in a similar way to the fashion world in that new designs are released regularly in varying amounts and when they are gone they are gone.
Disney Princess Curtains – 54” drop
An easy way to add impact to a child’s bedroom is by dressing the window with a snazzy pair of themed curtains and character curtains usually come in lively and colourful designs. This pair of ready-made Disney Princess Dreams curtains are the perfect addition to our collection, featuring Cinderella, Aurora and Rapunzel, and coming in at just £14.95. Remember to check the drop (length) of the curtains you require before you order.
Disney Princess Bean Bag – Dreams
The great thing about having a Princess Bean Bag is that you can pick it up and move it anywhere in the house so while it adds to the magic of a themed bedroom it also transports it’s magic to movie night in front of the family TV and can be easily moved in to the play room, if you are lucky enough to have one, to chill out and read on. All of the bean bags from Children’s Rooms are filled with fire retardant beads and most, including this one, are wipe clean. Adding this to you shopping list will cost you £16.95.
Princess Wall Sticker
Here in the office we all think this princess wall sticker is pretty cool. For £16.95 you will get a large tiara style crown sticker along with the words “The Princess Sleeps Here” but by far the best bit is the pack of smaller stickers which allows you to spell out your child’s name.
Silver Sparkle Star Chandelier
This is very much a self-indulgent addition to the list courtesy of my seven year old self who would have LOVED a silver sparkle star chandelier , in fact I am wondering if I could still get away with it now! This fabulous bit of kit will add just a teeny £6.95 to your total and let’s face it no self-respecting princess can go without her very own chandelier complete with crystal droplets.
And so that’s it … the end of our story. Five princess themed goodies which include bedding, curtains, bean bag, wall stickers and a chandelier style ceiling shade for £66.75 (excluding delivery). If you have any questions about any of these products just get in touch and we will be more than happy to help.
