A Cinderella-themed Sweet 15 party calls for elegant fairy tale centrepieces. Take ideas from the classic story to create centrepieces that reflect the theme. Make your birthday party a dream come true with some centrepieces that will get guests thinking about castles, glass slippers and happily-ever-after on your special day.


In the classic story, the fairy godmother turns a simple pumpkin into a coach to take Cinderella to the ball. Decorate the table using miniature pumpkins. If you can find white pumpkins, use those. If not, you can paint ordinary pumpkins with white craft paint. Group several pumpkins together with some white or pink tulle and tapered candles with silver candlesticks for a beautiful centrepiece. Another option is to buy bigger pumpkins, hollow them out and use them for vases. Place some floral foam into the bottoms of the pumpkins and arrange flowers inside, sticking the stems into the foam. Use flowers that match the colour scheme of your party.

Tiaras and Wands

Create a centrepiece using tiaras and wands. Use a cake stand that has a pedestal for the base of the centrepiece, and arrange the tiara and wand on top. Lay a lace doily or a piece of pink satin under the items. Sprinkle silver glitter on the surface of the cake stand for added sparkle. Another option is to lay some tulle in a glass bowl and arrange tiaras and wands inside. Consider accenting your arrangement by lighting a few candles and placing them around the centrepiece.


Make a castle centrepiece by filling a bowl with sand. Nestle a miniature castle into the sand. Alternately, create a flower bouquet using a shallow vase or container and filling it with flowers and greenery. Insert a piece of floral foam into the base of the container first to secure your bouquet. Place a castle in the centre of the bouquet, making it look as if the castle is floating on flowers.

Glass Slipper

For your centrepiece, place a glass slipper ornament on a satin pillow to create an elegant decoration. Sprinkle flower petals around the pillow or place candles in sophisticated candlesticks around the centrepiece. Another option is to use a pretty shoebox as the base of the centrepiece. Place the glass slipper on top of the shoebox, and arrange a garland of greenery around the box.


Find some beautifully illustrated copies of the book Cinderella, or just ones that have pretty covers. Stand the books up, slightly open, on the table. For added flair, set the books on some tulle or surround them with candles, miniature pumpkins, or tiaras and wands.
