How to have a Zhu Zhu Pets Birthday Party Theme

So last year it was Webkinz and now this year it is Zhu Zhu Pets – funny how things change so quickly and we move from one toy to the next.  It is just how things go and when the kids are obsessed with a new toy they will soon be asking you to throw them a party based on that theme. Again just like last year when Webkinz were all the craze there was no Birthday Party Supplies available to go along with them and this year with the Zhu Zhu Pets it is the same thing.  I helped so many parents last year with my Webfriendz Birthday Party Package based on a Webkinz Theme so this year I am helping again.

I worked really hard and put together a Zhu Zhu Pets Birthday Party Theme on my Party Blog to help parents in this situation. I am happy with how it turned out and I think I will be thanked again. I came up with the perfect Party Supplies, Invitations, Party Favors, Cake and Cupcake Ideas, Crafts and even created a bunch of  fun Zhu Zhu Pet Party Games and more.  It is not easy planning a party when there is nothing available out there to help  – well now there is and it is all laid out for you from start to finish. I plan to make sure my post is updated with all the latest party supplies as I find them. I just know once Christmas is past and the kids have their toys that parents will be scrambling as Birthdays come around. I have seen it happen before – so I did what I do best and took away that worry.

The Princess and The Frog Birthday Party Ideas

With the upcoming release of Disney’s newest movie The Princess and The Frog December 12th 2009 all the girls will be wanting to have this theme for their Birthday Party. Understandable being this is the first time in years that Disney has introduced us to a new Princess and it will be well worth the wait. Princess Tiana will appeal to all the little girls and we be very welcomed into the Disney Princess circle.

So of course being The Party Animal I have been on top of all the planning and put together some really great resources for you to find all your supplies, ideas, games, activities and more. I am going to share them with you here – so if you are looking to plan a Princess and the Frog Party than look no further, because I have done all the work for you already.

So in celebration of Princess Tiana and your Little Birthday Princess here are all the resources to have the most MAGICAL Birthday Party fit for a Princess:

For you one stop shop I have created a Squidoo Page: The Princess and The Frog Birthday Party Supplies, Ideas and More.

You will find EVERYTHING you need to make this party theme happen right there. From your Princess and The Frog Paper Goods, Invitations, FREE Printable Party Games, Activities, Birthday Cakes & Cupcake Ideas, Party Favors – you name it  is there. Everything related to Princess Tiana, Princes, Frogs and Kisses which is what the movie is based on – if only real life could be the same.

I have even created a special Stuff a Frog Party Activity to go along with this party theme.  It is a Plush Frog the kids can stuff at the party and the Frog is available in 15″ or 8″ size  depending on your budget. Each Stuffable Frog Kit comes complete with Frog, Stuffing, Wishing Star Insert, Pink Princess T-Shirt, Kiss Sound Chip and Custom Birth Certificate. It is the PERFECT party activity for your Princess and the Frog Party and it also doubles as your party favor. They are similar to a Build a Bear, but the kids do this at home and stuff their frogs by hand.

If you are looking to play Dress up you may like my page on Princess Tiana Costumes.  I have featured all the latest Princess Tiana Costumes, Shoes, Tiaras, and more. If your little girl is a HUGE fan then you will want to make sure she has some of the latest Princess Dresses to add to her collection. They are even perfect for her to wear at her Birthday Party. They are also great if you are taking a trip to Disney World – have them on hand prior to your trip and save yourself a ton of money vs. having to buy them while you are in the park.

Last but not least if your are looking for ideas for your Princess and the Frog Birthday Cake I have a Hubpage I put together on Frog Birthday Cakes and Cupcakes you may want to take a look at. There are a lot of great ideas you can find for inspiration and they are all very easy to create and would be perfect for your party. I think they are adorable.

Oh I almost forgot – I also added FREE Printable Princess Tiana Coloring Pages to my Party Blog  – they make a great addition to your favor bags and cost nothing, but ink and paper – gotta love that!!

So I think I have this entire Party Theme covered and I know you will be happy to have stumbled across this.  So have a great party and I hope it is as Magical as the movie.

Princess and the Frog Party

The Princess and the Frog Deluxe Party Pack

I am so excited for the new Disney movie The Princess and The Frog and the introduction of Princess Tiana –  Disney’s first African American Princess. It has been a very long time since Disney has had a new princess for all the little girls to idolize. I have to share a great Squidoo page I put together that has everything needed to have a Princess and The Frog Birthday Party . I worked very hard on this one and it includes everything from the Official Disney The Princess and The Frog Party Supplies, Invitations,  Games, Crafts, Free Printable Games and a lot more. It is definitely a one stop shop to putting this theme together and I will keep it updated with all the latest supplies as they are released.

The princess and the frog birthday party activity

In addition to that I have put together some great party kits to go along with this celebration on my website. I am now offering  Stuff a Frog Kits – these were put together to go perfectly with The Princess and The Frog Party Theme and specially priced. Each Kits comes with a Stuffable Frog offered in two size choices – 15″ and also 8″ included is a KISS Sound Chip, Pink Princess T-Shirt, Wishing Star, Stuffing, Custom Birth Certificate and Directions.  You will also find on my website Chocolate Covered Rice Krispy Treat Love Frogs and Kiss Lips that are also perfect to go along with this party theme.

I have to say I am so in love with the great party colors that were chosen for the party supplies – I think they are so pretty with the purple, green and blue. I give Kudos to the Disney people behind designing those – they are beautiful.

princess tiana

I also created a Hubpage on Princess Tiana and some of the new toys starting to take over the market – and we all know they will take over the market. Disney never lets us down when it comes to marketing and Princess Tiana just opened up a new door to let the flood flow. I am looking forward to seeing how they will change all the existing merchandise to incorporate the new princess.  Something tells me we will see a Huge influx this 2009 Holiday Season as the movie is set to be in theaters in November.  Perfect timing Disney!!! So even with the number of toys currently available at this time – there is no doubt in my mind it will double.

Tiana’s Showboat Jubilee

Disneyland and Walt Disney World plan to add a Mardi Gras-style musical cavalcade called Tiana’s Showboat Jubilee for the 2009 holiday season, according to theme park officials. This sounds like so much fun.  This special treat is only for a limited time and opens in Disney World on October 26th, 2009 and will only run until January 3rd, 2010. I think if you can get there to see this it will magical. I am sure Disney Parks has something in the works for a permanent attraction based on The Princess and The Frog, but we will have to wait and see. Ya know my dad works at Disney World (yes I am lucky) so I will have to see if he has any inside information. Hmmmm.

To start I made a great blog post all about Personalized Halloween Party Invitations including one of my favorites that gets put inside a cardboard coffin box. So when it comes to getting out your Halloween Party Invites you will find some really great ideas and some that are very creative as well.

Ghost Pinata

Next I wrote a Squidoo Lens all about Halloween Pinatas and there you will find every pinata available for this fun holiday. When writing this I was absolutely amazed at how many choices there are available. My personal favorite Halloween Pinata would have to be the Ghost – it is just adorable as it looks like it is flying.

Spider Ring Toss Game

To go along with that I did a Squidoo Lens on the Best Halloween Party Games available. A Halloween Party would not be complete without some fun spooky games for the kids ya know.  I have also included one of my favorite games which is the Touch and Feel Boxes with Step by Step Instructions and ideas for some gross things the kids can touch. You will also find many party games you may never even knew existed – I sure did not before writing this so it is a great resource.

You will see a great variety of  decorations there that may just keep your neighbors from wanting to peak in your windows again.

Birthday Party Ideas for Tweens

mystery birthday party

Do you have a Tween or a Teenager who wants a Birthday Party and you have no idea what to do? You know at that age if you do not something cool it will be the end of the world for them – or at least they think so.  As a Party Planner I have been asked quite a bit about what a good party theme is for this age group.  I just added a post to my Party Blog called:  Tween and Teenage Mystery Parties.  I came across this great site which sells these Mystery Party Kits that you can download and have in your hands right away.  Them come with the entire Mystery already done for you. I think this is a great unique party idea for this age group. It is easy to follow and the kids absolutely love this stuff.

I am thinking I will be doing one of the Mystery Packages for my son’s 12th Birthday Party this year.  There are so many mysteries to choose from so there is something for everyone. They even offer Adult Mystery Party Packages as well so if you are looking for one of those they have them too.

To read more about them just visit my blog where I provide lots more details so until then this will remain a Mystery………..
