Cinderella is a favourite fairy tale among girls in all age groups. The beautiful carriage in the story stirs imaginations and provides wonderful thoughts of princes and princesses. Cinderella's carriage can be the theme of birthday parties and wedding showers as well as collectibles and playthings. Ideas abound for purchased or hand-created carriages for a special lady or girl.

Carriage Party Candles and Favors
Decorate a bridal shower or other adult celebration with Cinderella carriage-shaped candles and candle holders. Gifts.com has a variety of candle products available; check craft and gift shops, too. To make your own inexpensive candle favours or decorations, purchase white or silver votive candles. Push the stick end of a plastic carriage decoration (typically meant for birthday cakes and available at bakery departments and party stores) into the top of each candle. For younger party guests, place carriage stickers on the outside of votive-candle holders or small clay flower pots, and fill a container for each guest with candy.
Bake and decorate a carriage cake in a speciality cake pan, available at party stores or online at Wilton.com. You can also design a carriage by using a round cake and two cupcakes. Decorate the cake with frosting and add features with prepared icing in tubes. Place the two cupcakes at the bottom edge of the round cake for the wheels. You may also use edible cake decorations and candies to add more decoration to your carriage. Line the door area with liquorice pieces, place pretzel spokes on the wheels, sprinkle glittering candy sugars on the carriage or push star candies into the frosting in several places on the carriage.
Spray-paint a medium-sized pumpkin white, silver or gold. Glue four plastic craft foam wheel shapes to the bottom of the pumpkin. Glue strings of small pearl-like craft beads onto the pumpkin to form the shapes of doors, windows and the top of a carriage. Place the pumpkin carriage on a piece of cotton batting and place several gold or silver candles around the carriage for a princess-like centrepiece. Let younger children make smaller versions of the pumpkin carriages. Spray-paint small pumpkins or let the kids paint the pumpkins as they wish. Provide craft materials to allow the girls to create their own princess carriage.
Cinderella Carriage Jewelry Crafts
Provide puffy or flat stickers of Cinderella's carriage. Have each girl place a sticker on a piece of craft foam. Use plain or decorative-cut scissors to cut around the sticker, leaving a small edge of the craft foam showing. The girls may make more than one piece of jewellery with the stickers and foam. Have girls poke a hole in the top of each foam piece and thread a length of plastic lacing through to tie into a necklace or bracelet.
