"The Princess and the Frog" has become a popular choice for a birthday party theme thanks to the Disney animated movie. Ideas for food, decorations, activities and more will help you plan a party that even Princess Tiana and her frog prince would be happy to attend.
Purchase paper plates, napkins, tablecloths and other party supplies in lavender, pale green and light blue for your "The Princess and the Frog" party. Fill a few vases with princess wands and place them on tables for a royal centrepiece. Paper crowns with the guests' names on them double as place cards and table decorations. When the party is over, each guest can take home a crown and a wand as her party favour. Mardi Gras beads spread out on tabletops and draped over the backs of chairs, along with streamers and balloons, will help add a festive touch to your party.
Crown-shaped cookies or cupcakes that look like frogs make a perfect sweet treat for your party. If you'd rather serve cake, make a round or rectangular cake, frost it to match your party colours and add a Princess Tiana topper and icing flowers to the top.
Frog floats make a fun drink that your party guests can make themselves. Just put a scoop of lime sherbet in a clear plastic cup and pour lemon-lime drink over it. Then add two small marshmallows with a mini chocolate chip placed on top of each to make frog eyes and a piece of red liquorice for the tongue. Drink with a fancy straw.
Plan some princess- or frog-themed games to keep your guests busy and having fun. Instead of musical chairs, make large lily pads out of green poster board and play musical lily pads. Play music from the movie and have the children hop around until the music stops and they have to find a lily pad to stand on.
Play Pin the Tail on the Donkey but with a royal twist. Make a poster of Princess Tiana without her crown and hang it on a wall. Then give each child a crown and, while blindfolded, have her try to put the crown on Princess Tiana's head.
A few "The Princess and the Frog" activities will ensure that all of your party goers have a good time. Fill a frog-shaped pinata with candy, plastic jewellery and other princess-worthy treats. The children will have a ball trying to break it open and then collecting the prizes they find inside it. Older children will enjoy making their own jewellery out of beads. Younger children can decorate foam or cardboard crowns with stick-on jewels, gel pens and stickers. Set up a table with "The Princess and the Frog" colouring sheets, crayons and markers so that the children have something to do when they arrive at the party or when they are waiting to be picked up.
