Cinderella Party Supplies – The Background
Cinderella Party Supplies are based on the folk tale Cinderella. It is also known as The Little Glass Slipper. It is a story of a young lady living in unfortunate circumstances. Her luck suddenly changes and she gets all the happiness that she can think of.
The plot of the story is very interesting. Once a widower re-marries. He has a young and very beautiful daughter from his first wife. The woman he marries is very proud and ill-tempered. She too has two daughters. Both of her daughters are equally haughty.
Cinderella is a sweet tempered girl. She is always ready to help everyone. Her stepmother and stepsisters force her to do all the housework. After completing all her work that she was forced to do she used to sit in the cinders. And that’s the reason she was called “Cinderella”. She had to bear everything silently. She was afraid that her father would scold her if she told anything against her stepmother and stepsisters. Because her new mother controlled her father totally.
The prince of the land wants to choose a beautiful wife. So he arranges a ball. He invites all the young girls to it. Cinderella’s stepsisters are also invited. They happily plan what they would wear on the day. Cinderella, while helping them (she has to), dreams of going to the ball. But she is taunted by her sisters. They tell her that she is a maid and a maid cannot attend the dance.
The sisters go to the dance, Cinderella weeps and weeps. Magically, her Fairy Godmother appears. She says that she would help her and would send her to the ball. She turns a pumpkin into a coach, mice into horses, a rat into a coachman, and lizards into footmen through her magic. Then, she turns Cinderella’s rags into a beautiful gown. She makes her dressing complete with a pair of glass slippers, delicate but beautiful. The Godmother warns her that the spells would be broken unless she returns before midnight. Then the Godmother tells her to enjoy the ball and sends her to it.
The entire court at the ball is impressed by Cinderella. The Prince is entranced by Cinderella’s beauty and is always at her side. Her sisters are unable to recognize her. Cinderella returns back before midnight and thanks her Godmother. The sisters too return home and are keeping talking about the charming girl at the event.
The Prince holds another ball next evening and Cinderella again attends the event with the help of her Godmother. The Prince becomes more attracted towards her. She, too, enjoys the ball very well. But this time she can not keep track of time. She leaves the place exactly at midnight. In the hurry, she loses one of her glass slippers as well. The Prince tries to search her but can find only her glass slipper. The Prince keeps the slipper and decides to marry the girl who wore the slipper. Cinderella keeps the other slipper.
The Prince tries to search the beautiful girl by trying the slipper on all the women. When the Prince comes to Cinderella’s house, her stepsisters try to win over the prince. But the slipper won’t fit them. Cinderella wants to try the slippers but is taunted by her sisters. But the slippers fit perfectly and Cinderella shows the other slippers as well. The Prince is happy and the sisters apologize her for all the cruelties. Cinderella forgives them. She marries the Prince and starts living in the palace. Her stepsisters are also married by two lords.
The moral of the story is that beauty is important, but not more than graciousness.
There are many versions of the story. The oldest version comes from Ancient Egypt. In the story, when Cinderella was taking bath, an eagle picks up one of her sandals and drops into the lap of the king of Memphis. The king is entranced by the beauty and shape of the sandals and sends his men to search all over the country for the girl who wore the sandals. She is found and brought to the king who marries her.
The story of Cinderella has been the basis of many notable works like operas, ballets, ice shows, theaters, movies, books, novels, songs and video games.
Cinderella Party Supplies – The Options
You may select Basic Party Pack from our Cinderella Party Supplies which includes all the stuff you need for 8 guests. Or you may go with the Deluxe Party Pack from our Cinderella Kids Party Supplies. It has much more items than the Cinderella Basic Pack. The Cinderella deluxe pack is also for 8 guests. If you need favor boxes as well, I would suggest you to choose the combination of Deluxe Party Pack & 8 Favor Boxes from our Cinderella Kids Birthday Party Supplies. It would cost you much more if you purchase them separately. If you think that the number of guests may exceed 8 you should consider Cinderella Party Pack Add-On. It contains extra items for the extra guests. You may order Cinderella Party Favor Boxes separately as well.
I’ve personally used Cinderella Party Supplies for my kid’s birthday and through my personal experience I would recommend it to all Cinderella lover kids. Fairy-tale dreams really do come true for girls wishing to have a Cinderella birthday party.
