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.

Cupcakes Cookies and Birthday Cakes

Boy I have been busy on my Hubpages – I have been on a kick writing about Cupcakes, Cookies and Birthday Cakes. I guess I was feeling a bit SWEET lately. Nah – You know what it is? I really love cupcakes and that is what started it all and I am having fun finding some great ideas to share.  So let me share some of my newest Hubs that will give you ideas and inspiration the next time you are having a party – or maybe just for the heck of it. To each Hub I have added showcases of photos to give you all kinds of ideas – for me I like to look at the pictures and then create my own designs – so I thought I would not be the only one like that.

So here are the Hubs that I have completed with many more to come:

turkey cupcake

Turkey CupcakesEvery holiday when my family gets together we always plan an activity for the kids to do. One fun activity is to allow them to make their own Turkey Cupcakes.

reindeer cupcakes

Reindeer Cupcakes – Reindeer Cupcakes are not only a fun treat around the holidays, but a fun party activity the kids can do any enjoy. This is one of the things I do with the kids on Holidays and at Parties myself.

snowman cupcakes

Snowman Cupcakes – I love cupcakes and I love getting the kids involved in making them. I love to do this at our family gatherings and holiday parties and you can do it too. The kids love to eat them, but they also love to make their own creations.

Princess Birthday Cakes

Princess Birthday Cakes – Princess Birthday Cakes are so much fun to make and not as hard as they look. I am going to share with you some great Princess Birthday Cakes that you can create at home for your little princess. I think at some point every parent that has a daughter will have a party that has to do with a Princess Theme – it is almost a given.

Frog Birthday Cake

Frog Cakes and Cupcakes – I have been doing a lot of writing about The Princess and the Frog Movie and have come across some of the cutest Frog Birthday Cakes and Cupcakes so I figured I would share them for all of those looking for ideas. You can either use one of the recipes for one you like or use them for inspiration on coming up with your own designs.

popcorn cupcakes

Popcorn Cupcakes – I absolutely love these Popcorn Cupcakes and they are a fun treat for all your party guests. So many people are unaware that you can make a cupcake look like popcorn so you will certainly wow them as well.

pig cupcakes

Pig Cupcakes – Are you having a Pig or Farm Theme Birthday Party? Do you just love Pigs? If you answered yes to any of those then you will really love these Pig Cupcakes – I know I do. I have been doing a lot of writing on cupcakes lately and the design ideas are endless.


giant cookie birthday cake

Giant Cookie Birthday Cakes – Have fun at your next Birthday Party and instead of a cake – make a Giant Cookie Birthday Cake. Not only are they easy to do – kids love to eat cookies. You do not always have to have the normal type Birthday Cake at a party, sometimes it is fun to change things up a bit. With some ideas you will find here maybe you will be inspired to do just that.

Giant Cupcake Cake

Giant Cupcake Birthday Cakes – Now I love Cupcakes at Birthday Parties, but have you seen the Giant Cupcakes? I do not think a cupcake can get any better than that. Now obviously your Giant Cupcake would not be made for each guest, although I would be ok with that, it would be used as your Birthday Cake.

spongebob cake template

Easy Birthday Cake Patterns – I was recently doing a blog post on my Birthday Party Blog when I stumbled across these very cool Birthday Cake Patterns and knew I just had to share them. They are sold on Ebay from seller kidz-cakes and I think they are genius.

So far that is all I have in the Sweets, but there will be many more to come. I am also working on a complete over haul to my Birthday Party Blog which will take up most of my time and I already have a busy week. When I add more Hubs I will blog about it right here – so stay tuned. If you stop by some of my Hubs make sure you leave a comment and say ‘Hi”. Now go get baking in the kitchen!!!

Halloween is Creeping up upon us Fast

Painted Dog Pumpkin

Are you ready for Halloween? Do you have your costume picked and ready to go? My kids are almost ready – My daughter wants to be a Wizard Witch – that is a cross between a Wizard and a Witch obviously. She is wearing a very sparkly Witch costume we bought on clearance last year and will carry a wand. It is what she wants – so I am all for it. My son wants to be a stick figure – is that funny? It is so easy to make. I got him a Black Shirt and Black Sweat pants – cost me $11.  Now I have to find the Glow in the Dark Masking Tape and then just tape it on the shirt and pants and he is done. Seems too easy for me this year – but I am so not complaining.

I still have yet to carve or paint my pumpkins. The picture you see above is my Painted Dog Pumpkin I made last year – isn’t he cute? I wrote a Hubpage all about Pumpkin Carving Alternatives you can take a look at to see some of the other ones we made last year.  I have not decided which approach I will take this year. I did grow my own Pumpkins for the first time this year and got a few good ones in some fun shapes.

window blood

I am guilty this year of not taking out my Halloween Decorations – I have been so busy I just have not found the time. I do have some festive fall decor outside my home, but usually the inside is filled with decorations. The kids have not said anything so I do not see the urgency of going in the attic at this point to get them out. I did make a great Squidoo page all about Halloween Window Decorations and was hoping to get some myself, but sometimes life can be too busy – so I guess next year. In my area the kids do not trick or treat at my house because it is too rural so no one will be coming to see them anyway.

Child Toilet Costume
I do have to share my favorite Halloween Costume I have seen this year – I am not sure why I like this one, but it really made me laugh. Have you seen the Toilet Costume? I think this is great and so wrong all at the same time – so for me it is the perfect costume if you have it in you to wear it. Was that a Pun? I have to say if you want attention at your Halloween Party then this is one that will no doubt bring it on.

Halloween is that time of year that tells us once we get through that – Thanksgiving and Christmas is right around the corner and to me that is the scariest thing about it. Those holidays I am totally not ready for at all!!!

Here are some other Halloween Pages I have Written you may like to see:

Halloween Party Ideas

halloween party ideas

I cannot believe it has been a while since I last Blogged on here. Well I will tell you about some new pages I created to help you with your Halloween Party Planning. 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.

Demon Window Poster

Do you think I would forget scary Halloween Decorations? No way – I love decorating for Halloween and some of my favorites  are Halloween Window Decorations. On this Squidoo lens you will find some of the scariest and cool decorations for your windows. Everything from Bloody Window Clings to Clings for your car Windows. You will see a great variety of  decorations there that may just keep your neighbors from wanting to peak in your windows again.

Fang Monster Cupcake

Then I moved to Hubpages and created a Hub on Halloween Cupcakes. On my Hubpage you will find lots of great ideas to make your Halloween Cupcakes looking sweet and spooky. You can also watch a video showing you how easy it is to make Ghost Cupcakes. I have added lots of photos of some fun creations like Spider Cupcakes, Monster Cupcakes, Eyeball Cupcakes, Bat Cupcakes, Witch Cupcakes, Mummy Cupcakes and more. Oh and one of the newest – How about Brain Cupcakes – ewww – Just the way you want them – so come check it out.

So that is what I have been up to for Halloween Party Ideas so far – when I write more I will add them on here. Halloween is so much fun and so are all the parties that go along with it!!!

A Penguin Birthday Party Theme

009

Remember when I said that I was working on a Penguin Birthday Party Theme for my daughter? Well it is over and it was fantastic. I just blogged the entire party details on my party blog: Penguin Birthday Party.  For this party I made all of my own party decorations and even created and made the games with things I had around the house. I wanted to show others that you can have a party that looks like you spent a ton of money when in reality it hardy cost anything.  My money was spent mostly on food to feed the kids and on the party activity which was Stuffing a Plush Penguin and the Penguin Party Favors.

Penguin Cupcake 7

I even made my own Penguin Cupcakes which I also have featured on my party blog with Step by Step instructions on the two styles I made and they were a huge hit. The kids played games like Musical Ice Bergs, Save the Penguin from the Ice, Feed the Penguin and more and you can find all the directions on my blog.

Again my point is even though it took me time to make everything  for the party it is so worth it in the end. Not only do you save a lot of money, but your party will never be the same as anyone else and the kids really love that too. Now do not say you are not creative – all the things I made and did anyone can do too. That is why I have my party blog so I can share with parents how easy it is and to also show you all the unique birthday party supplies out there you may not have ever known about.

Now I get to rest a bit with planning my own children’s parties being my next one is in the winter. BUT I will continue sharing great ideas and helping other parents make their child’s day extra special. Need Help with your party – just contact me – I love a good challenge.
