The Princess And The Frog: Miss Charlotte's Perfect Party Planning Tips

Whether riding atop a float in the grand parade or dancing with your dream prince at the Mardi Gras Ball, every princess in the Crescent City dreams of presiding over the perfect Mardi Gras event. To celebrate the March 16, 2010 release of The Princess And The Frog DVD, here are a few tips for y’all on how to plan your very own Royal Mardi Gras Gala!


Set The Date & Time

Proper planning for your Royal Gala will make it a wonderful success.


Invite Your Guests

Send your invitations: Proclaiming A Royal Event! Be sure to include all the important details that your guests will need to know:

  1. Date
  2. Time
  3. What To Wear


Decorate For A Festive Event

Create the perfect look for your Mardi Gras Gala with flowers, balloons, streamers and confetti. Choose Mardi Gras colors of green, purple and gold, and … pink. Don’t forget to decorate yourself in your best princess party dress, white gloves, beautiful jewelry, princess shoes, and a pretty purse! After all, there may be a prince nearby. Tuxedo Jackets are perfect for any princes who might be attending.


Prepare Delicious Food

It’ll be a magical event with proper treats and delicious delights for your guests to enjoy. Tiana’s gumbo and beniets are always fitting.


Set A Royal Table

Arrange place settings fit for a Mardi Gras Queen! Colorful tablecloths and napkins make your table pretty. Find a color theme and be sure to include that color when selecting tablecloth, napkins and tea settings. Use lace doilies and fresh flowers to create a centerpiece adding the perfect touch. Be sure to have proper settings and place cards for proper seating for all your party guests.


Games & Activities

Entertain your guests with fun activities:

  • Slipper Relays: Fill a box with several pairs of shoes – all styles and sizes. Two teams, each member must find the proper pair, put the shoes on and properly walk the red carpet and join their team members on the other end of the carpet.
  • Crown Toss: From a proper distance, see if your guests can toss their crowns onto the throne.
  • Enchanted Jewel Hunt: Place a number of treasures and trinkets around the tea room or in the yard for your guests to ‘hunt’ for. Give each of your guests a purse or treasure box to hold all of their precious jewels in.

Try these fun activities provided or create your own ideas.

EndlessDream is right. Skipping breakfast and lunch can result in stomach ulcers and sudden weight gain (had personal experience...), ESPECIALLY skipping breakfast! You have to incorporate exercise in your daily routine. Stomach and body fat is mostly caused by lack of exercise, and maybe that means you need to do toning exercises. Try doing simple exercise videos like the 3-mile powerwalk on YouTube (trust me, I sweat like crazy when I do those workouts). Anything that gets you sweating, is the kind of exercise you need to do.  I hated working out when I first started my weight loss journey too. I would always start wheezing every time I started working out. But after pushing through everyday, I think working out is one of the best stress busters I've ever had!  If you want to lower your appetite though, I suggest eating a full lunch and breakfast and skipping your dinner. If you can't skip dinner, then at least try aiming for an early dinner, around 5:30 or 6:00. Your body needs time to digest at least 4 hours before you sleep. I started gaining weight around puberty when I was 12, it could be the same for you too.  But honestly, there's nothing wrong with having consciousness about your weight. Now starving yourself and dieting is BAD, but there's nothing wrong with changing your lifestyle in order to be fit. It's a good thing that kids start caring about their health, and the earlier you start, the better off you are.

You need breakfast and lunch. Starving yourself, even if you aren't hungry, makes you loose energy to the point you could pass out from not eating. Keep your diet healthy. For breakfast, at least have yogurt, fruit, and juice. Drink at least 4 full glasses of water a day. Trim down on the snacks. Everyone has different bodies and build. You may just be large-boned. And that's not bad! That makes you stronger and higher ability to gain muscle. Loosing weight doesn't happen over night. It can take months.

For years my parents would tell me I'm skinny but compared to other people, my waist was bigger and I would always hide it. Though it was obvious I weighed more, I've only been doing this for a week and I didn't ever tell anyone what I was doing until my parents found out. I would skip lunch and breakfast and say I was full. I only ate a big dinner every night. Once my parents found out, they said it was unhealthy and if I didn't  stop, I would develop an eating disorder. I obviously listened to them, but I've tried as best as I can so far. I have barely lost any weight from exercise and my parents won't let me go on a diet because I already 'eat healthy enough'. I want to lose weight without exercising being 3/4s of my lifestyle. I know, I'm a lazy idiot for saying all this.

Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.
