We do have more games to choose from and also elaborate packages that include castle decorations, centerpieces, table set up, cake, horse carriages,   everything your heart desires!

PRINCESS PARTY BASIC OUTLINE

EVERY GIRL IS GREETED BY A ROYAL CHARACTER

“WELCOME TO PRINCESS (Name of the Birthday Girl) CASTLE, I AM THE ROYAL GUARD/MAIDEN, —— ALLOW ME TO ESCORT YOU TO THE ROYAL CHAMBERS… WHERE A ROYAL HAIRDO AND MAKEUP SESSION AWAITS FOR YOU”

WHEN THE GIRL GETS TO THE CURTAIN  SHE IS ANNOUNCED:

“ ANNOUNCING PRINCESS …………”

ANNOUNCING HER ROYAL HIGHNESS PRINCE….

APPROPRIATE FANFARE MUSIC SHOULD BE PLAYED IN THIS PART…

THE BIRTHDAY GIRL CAN BE ANNOUNCED LAST WITH FANFARRE :

“ANNOUNCING ON THE AUSPICIOUS OCCASION OF HER —– BIRTHDAY, HER MAJESTY PRINCESS —–”

FIRST ACTIVITY (GIRLS)

PRINCESS VALENTINE FROM VENICE COMES IN, GREETS PRINCESS “Birthday Girl”  WITH A ROYAL VOW AND TEACHES PRINCESSES HOW TO VOW, TWIRL ETC, SHE WILL ALSO REFER TO THE VALIENT KINGS, AND KNIGHTS PRESENT. SHE IS ALL EXCITED THAT GIRLS ARE HAVING THEIR HAIR DONE AND POPS IN TO HELP.

SHE BORROWS PRINCESS ’ S ROYAL THRONE AND SITS HER BESIDE HER AND TELLS ALL THE CHILDREN  A LITTLE STORY ABOUT HER, WHERE SHE COMES FROM AND HOW SHE BECAME A PRINCESS…

STORY TIME:  Boys and girls can sit down on the floor while Princess Valentine will read the story My Child My Princess by Beth Moore from the throne. It is a wonderful story about a little girl who decides she doesn’t want to be a princess anymore and goes off to be with the regular children who do awful things.  In the end she returns home to her father the king who tells her that he will always love her and she will always be his child, his princess. Princess Valentine asks for the King of this castle because she hasn’t been properly introduced and call King (Father of the Birthday Girl) and/or the Queen (Mom) and asks them what are the greatest qualities of her child princess…
SHE WILL THEN INVITE ALL CHILDREN FOR SOME ROYAL SUPER FUN AND TAKE EVERYONE OUTSIDE ACCOMPANIED BY HER ROYAL GUARDS.

THEY WILL CONDUCT A MODELING RUNWAY WHILE THEIR MOMS WATCH AND PRINCESS VALENTINE INDICATES THEM TO TWIRL AND READS OUT THE PRINCESSE’S  AND KNIGHTS ACCOMPLISHMENTS SO FAR, AND FUTURE DESIRES FOR THE KINGDOM. She reads this out from the cards the girls and boys filled in at the beginning.

A ROYAL MAKE OVER!

THIRSTY AFTER A ROYAL HAIR DO!

GAME #1: For our first game she must divide the girls into two teams for a relay race.  Boys in each team will run first with their PRETEND horses. The girls will have to run across the yard and put on dress up clothes (the gown a big dress a princess hat, necklace, gloves and 2 bracelets and high heels) run to Medieval Lady who will get their picture taken run back take the clothes off and then tag the next girl until everyone has done it.  The winning team gets to pick prizes from box 1, team two has consolation prizes from Box 2.

TEA PARTY TIME

TOSS the coin

All the Musketeers at the party will play toss the coin. The one who sends the coin the farthest wins a prize.

GAME #3  Pass the Slipper.  We will play music from Princesses cds. When the music is going on, they pass the slipper when it stops whoever is holding the slipper is out. They can choose a sticker as consolation prize.

We have the same version with Boys except they pass a horse.

OUR FUN RELAY RACE!

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!

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…

To have Princess Anabelle visit you at your next party or School event or for more Party Ideas and fun….
