Cupcake and Pirate Charm

December 19, 2010

We are so happy to introduce to you our new team character hosts: Princess Cupcake and Pirate Charm.

Princess Cupcake is a beautiful princess from a far, far, far away land. She was about to get married to a horrible, terrible, despicable man, when she falls madly in love with a peasent. She did not know the peasant was in reality a pirate who helped the people from the village that where held prisoners by the evil future king….

Our characters were inspired by Robin Hood, Zorro and the Princess Bride.  The film, the Princess Bride,  is an enactment of the following story read by a sick boy’s grandfather (Falk) as the boy (Savage) sits in bed listening, framed and occasionally interrupted by scenes of the reading.
A beautiful young woman named Buttercup (Wright) lives on a farm in the fictional country of Florin.
Whenever she orders the farmhand Westley (Elwes) to do chores for her, he complies and answers “As you wish.”
Eventually she realizes he loves her and admits her love for him.  Watch a trailer of the movie from the 80’s:

Handsome Pirate Charm plays games with the kids. We can even recreate a fun jail where they are brought in. To get out, they have to either be rescued by friends, comply to a princess wish or perform a task for Pirate Charm.

Children will love to perform and play a variety of games at your next party.

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…

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!

Talent Show Party

May 13, 2010

This awesome and talented kid performed “Paparazzi” by Lady Gaga at Edmond’s Sixth Grade Festival.

Talent show parties are becoming very popular, not only at schools but as private birthday party celebrations. You can have an all the way type of thing where you can even hire look alike performers to hang out with your friends or have special appearances or keep it simple.

If you gave us to choose where to spend the most at this type of party, I would have to say decoration and the stage.  Also a character host/DJ who acts as a presenter like in the Oscar’s or Academy Awards!   Remember the focal point is the stage where you can set up the DJ and/or karaoke machine. We have developed a pop-up type of stage that we rent or have a more elaborate one that can light up and change colors. Our decoration also includes a mood set up high-quality banner of the Hollywood sign in California. It is an awesome setup that can include red carpet picture opportunity. Your friends will sure feel like the stars of the night.

The DJ creates fun games for the kids to follow. It is funny how kids get shy around other friends but will follow fun directions from a stranger. The truth is that a professional DJ for kids knows how to make everyone participate and get the energy going so they all  have a great time. Ours even has everyone warm up their voices, form group and have intermission games where everyone wants to jump in and participate.  Combine Karaoke with dance shows, this way you have a better opportunity for participation.  Have solos but also duets and group singing and dancing. You can even plan this ahead of time creatively so your friends form in groups for the party.

These talent show, karaoke or fun parties can be theme related with Western or Hannah Montana, Camp Rock, the Grammies, America’s got talent, American Idol, and so on.

Have someone impartial be the judges at your party and have the DJ make a fun introduction. At the end of the party you can award them categories and give them small Oscar statues or prizes. Everybody should be a winner. Some categories: Best acting performance, best dressed, best singer, etc.

To save on the cost of  food, keep it simple with dips,  chip, pop-corn, pizza and hot dogs like in the movies and have everyone stadium style seated surrounding the stage. If you want to go high-end on food, go with mouth bites and hors d’oeuvres, again your choice of mini-pizzas or shrimp and caviar!

This party screams fun! If you choose this party, call for a free consultation. We can work with you for your partial needs or create the whole party. This event will be something you and your friends will enjoy and talk about for years!

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…
