My review of The Princess and The Frog Movie

So on opening day of Disney’s The Princess and The Frog Movie – I went and saw it.  Just got back about a half hour ago. I decided to have a mom and daughter day and it is very rare that I ever see a movie the day it opens.  I am not one for crowds and busy theaters – just me.  I was luck that my local town theater was featuring this movie today – so I got extra lucky. So what did I think? I loved it – It is very rare that any Disney Movie would not be liked. The introduction of Princess Tiana was well done and it is nice to have a new Princess in the line up.

I think the movie sends a great message to younger children about working hard to achieve your goals and dreams. Yes of course there is also the fantasy of kissing a frog and finding your prince, but that is the fantasy part of the movie. I also really enjoyed all the Jazzy New Orleans Style Music throughout the movie and it really added to the charm. I think this movie had all the magic Disney Movies bring between the animation. music and the message. I came out of the theater with the thought – Dreams do come True and truly if you believe they will.

I give this movie 2 thumbs up and if you have the opportunity to see it – I say go for it. So once again – Welcome Princess Tiana – there is no doubt little girls everywhere are happy you have been created.

Now that I have seen the movie I will be making some changes to The Princess and The Frog Party Theme I have put together to reflect some ideas I have gathered from watching the movie. So be sure to come stop by and see.

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!!!

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.
