Sweet Princesses and Valiant Knights

November 3, 2010

Hear Ye!  Hear Ye!

All Princesses and Knights from across the land,

you are invited to a Royal event that is truly grand!

 

There will be costumes galore, red carpets and more

So reserve your place today for

PRINCESS  AZIA’S  4TH  ROYAL BALL!

 

This is sweet Princess Azia. She is curious and vibrant. A charming and vivacious hostess. In this picture, she is  proudly wearing the gift that Princess Valentine brought for her all the way from Venice. Jewelery of course. She brought it wrapped up on a heart shaped tin box.  A Special gift for a very special princess.

The princesses and knights were all having dinner at their beautifully decorated table….

Individual place cards greeted princess Azia’s guests..

Perfect sized tables, chairs, plates, tea cups, and glassware. The perfect meal, the perfect ball when they were suddenly interrupted…

In comes a doncella with a valiant musketeer. “I must speak with princess Azia at once!” he demanded while she inspected the place to make sure it was appropriate for Princess Valentine.

Something was missing, a golden magic mirror with pigeons on top for the princesses to sing while they watched their Royal transformation.

Music, Fanfare Please, our Royal Princess is arriving…

A royal Backdrop suit for a Wonderful Princess!

Throwing kisses at the magical Fountain:

Paying attention to Princess Valentine’s story. We all  learned it is OK to make mistakes once in a while, everybody makes them. But when you do, lessons can be learned and new and wonderful opportunities may arise.

Our Valiant knights, also learned about the value and responsibility of becoming a Knight on a training for a day!

More pictures:

Our princess was delighted with her party. Princess Valentine, Sir Edward and myself were very happy to join her at this wonderful Royal Ball.

Thank you so much Princess Azia for giving us so many special moments with you and your guests  in the auspicious occasion of your 4th Birthday. We also want to thank Queen Krissy for allowing us share this pictures with all of you.

Ideas para fiestas temáticas de piratas

June 16, 2010

Las fiestas temáticas infantiles suelen ser tema completo. Pero si planea bien y no deja detalles al azar, puede crear una fiesta perfecta y sin la necesidad de tener que emplear muchos elementos costosos.

Las fiestas de piratas pueden ser unas de las más interesantes para aquellos que quieran celebrar su cumpleaños, comunión o celebración particular de una manera temática divertida y audaz. ¿Te gustaría tener una fiesta llena de barcos, palmeras, balas de cañón y sombreros como en las películas? Pues entonces lea a continuación.

Como siempre es ideal en este tipo de situaciones, sería perfecto que la fiesta fuera al aire libre. Y si es en un lugar con piscina y palmeras, pues ya sería de ensueño, porque faciltaría la decoración de gran manera. De todos modos, puedes adornar el salón con plantas artificales, poniendo centros de mesa con velas tétricas e imitaciones de joyas, por poner un ejemplo. También estaría bueno que juegue con las luces dentro del salón, que proyecte películas de piratas y que musicalice a su gusto.

Lo ideal para esta fiesta temática de piratas es que nada quede al azar. Las invitaciones pueden tener forma de sombrero de pirata (y también tienen que estar disponibles sí o sí, para los disfraces) o incluso del famoso loro que siempre acompaña a los tripulantes. La comida y la bebida quedarán a su elección, así como los bocadillos. Aunque también estaría bien que algún detalle en la vajilla o platos de cartón que lo acompañe.

Por último el pastel sería ideal con forma de barco. Para el final, puede poner una piñata (puede tener forma de cofre sorpresa, como escondiendo un tesoro), algunos souvenirs acordes a la temática de la fiesta y repartir disfraces o algunos pequeños objetos alusivos. Por ejemplo, un parche para el ojo o un pañuelo para la cabeza.

Alice in Wonderland Birthday Party

June 3, 2010

We’re late, we’re late, my little princess’s  birthday party is approaching and I do not know where to start!

What about an Alice in Wonderland Birthday Party?

Sometimes it is best to have an event planner  help you with this party. It has too many details to take care of and most event planners already have the props and decorations for this party. That way you can take care of food only.

Our Alice in Wonderland magical tea party is the cutest thing ever!

From the amazing decorations, Alice’s magical visit our magical character hosts including the Mad Hatter, the Queen of Hearts and more, our funny hats crafts and makeovers, costumes and of course gorgeous table setting and tea pots. Your little Alice and her friends will sure enjoy being part of this classic favorite!

Which Alice?  You will first have to decide which of the two Alice in Wonderland she wants. Disney’s cartoon classic or Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.

I love them both!

Here is a picture from the cartoon classic!

Perfect, once the decision has been made, on with the party…. Did I say details? Boy, did I say details? Jumpy, jumpy like a Rabbit, imagine your guests entering threw a small, small door or a rabbit hole…on to a Red carpet into a magical garden!

For this party we can even hand paint each chair with the name of the guest in his or her favorite color, this was their party favor, so cute!

In the garden,  a variety of paper color lanterns hung from trees, signs indicating  “This Way That Way and The Other Way”…covered in glitter and swirling lights. Lots of ribbon, jumbo sized cards strung on them, giant  mushrooms, watches…. The table setting should be colorful with whimsical teapots and centerpieces.

Lots of Big Flowers, bright colors, huge butterflies, the more whimsical, the more fun this party will be! Check out this beautiful ideas from http://www.partywishesscv.com/ You will lfind more pictures there. She is an amazing photographer!

The cake must have a whimsical feel to it.

For Games, there is so much you can do that we can not list all! Just take into consideration they must be age appropriate. This theme is perfect for one year olds where you get most adults involved and love this party, specially our funny Queen of Hearts, and we have worked with thirteen year olds and even as a sweet sixteen themed party.

Face Painting makes us happy!

May 20, 2010

Bring a face painter to your next party. You can even have a magical fairy or princess that can create small works of art on your guest’s faces.

When picking a face painter there are certain things you need to consider:

Are they used to working with your age group?

Are the products child friendly, use only face painters who use safe and hypoallergenic face paints.

Face painting has a long and illustrious history in state fairs, theme parks, summer camps, school spring fling. You’ll  find it very hard to have a child who has not had their face painted at some point in their young lives or who would turn away the opportunity.

It still amazes me how face painting never gets old and how endless the possibilities are for face painting designs. From butterflies, rock divas, peacocks, farm friends, leopards, flags, cats and dogs,  you can paint anything that comes to mind.

Check out some happy customers showing off theirs!

Let our creative nature take over our brushes at your next happy hippo joyus event!

How to choose the Best Event Planner

May 18, 2010

hippo joy power point presentation

1. Budget. Cost -Effective. Many people think that by doing things themselves, they will save a lot of the expenses on their nest event. Truth of the matter is, hiring an event planner is better in the long run if you value your time. Event planners also have special discounts at venues, know places to go and get the best stuff and will be most cost-effective in the long run.

2. Creativity. Not all event planners are creative. And by creative I mean: budget wise but also that have ideas that will wow your guests at your next event. On the first interview, think… Are you in sync with their ideas? Do they listen to what you have to say. All this is important.

2. An Eye into Detail and organization. An event planner should see the things that you don’t or don’t have time to be watching. Their eye in to detail, organization skills and leadership are all factors that must be taken into consideration when hiring your event planner.

Give us a call and let us help you with your next event!

Princess Anabelle

May 10, 2010

Princess Anabelle visited Flora Ridge Elementary in Kissimee for their Spring Festival as a special guest. She felt very special surrounded by so many wonderful kids. These siblings in particular made her feel very special. I was nearby so I overheard their conversation, Ooooops, nosy me! It went something like this:

Siblings: Yes, she is! Excuse me, didn’t I meet you at Disney? Aren’t you the Beauty in the Beauty and the Beast?

Anabelle: No, I’m not, but I know her very well…. She is my cousin and our kingdoms are close by. Did you hear what happened to her?  She met a Best and fell madly in love with him…I was so worried for her you know….

Oldest sibling: Don’t worry, there is nothing to worry about, the Beast turned out to be a Prince and they married and live happily ever after.

Anabelle: It is a good thing you tell me this…I left my kingdom some years ago and came to America, I now live in a beautiful Cottage surrounded by trees and flowers, lots and lots of flowers….

They talked and talked and asked alll sort of interesting questions like:

What has happened to your kingdom since you left?

Do you have Dragons in your kingdom?

Does Belle write to you?

The smallest of the three asked to take a picture with Anabelle, here it is…
