Lion King party supplies can include the real Disney Lion King trademark paper goods or as you can see for our party, we used brightly colored, happy looking lions.
Most often my party supplies do double or triple duty. For this Lion King party, the party bags also served as the centerpieces. Use bright lime green tissue paper in the party bags to add extra color.
Four bags were placed around the patio umbrella with green grass sprinkled in between. Several plastic snakes sat hiding in the grass as well.We bought this set of jungle animal visors to hand out when the kids first arrived. Everone picked out their favorite animal. Made out of foam, the visors are really colorful and strong. Getting them wet is not a problem. The kids wore them as we started off the party with a Lion King Parade around the pool to Disney's "I Can't Wait to Be King."

The birthday girl got the lion visor while the rest of the guests picked out their favorite animal visor.
The same with the jungle themed beach balls - the birthday girl got one of the lion beach balls set apart just for her.
Instead of cake, cupcakes were served topped with little lion plastic finger puppets.
The kids loved them - that is the cupcakes and the finger puppets. The finger puppets could be played with in the pool and then taken home as party favors.
Fun cupcakes make the perfect Lion King Cake. Lion plastic finger puppets are the cupcake toppers. Chocolate sprinkles and green sugar can be sprinkled on the top of the frosting.
Display your creation on a cupcake stand and use it as a centerpiece.
We found these cute plastic yellow and orange lion finger puppets from Oriental Trading.
Finger puppets are a lot more fun and a lot more safe than
cupcake toppers that use toothpicks. Not only are the finger puppets
colorful, they make a great little take home party favor as well.
Bright yellow and orange cupcake liners that actually keep their color make for a more colorful cake. These liners are heavy duty so they are more expensive.
But the colors don't fade if you make a white cake like they do with the cheap liners from the grocery store. If you make chocolate the colors are less vivid.
I figured since I am not spending money on a store bought cake, spend the extra money to make your cupcake creations pop with bright orange and yellow, instead of a dingy, faded color.
Because they are heavy duty, they can be used to serve snacks like candy, popcorn, pretzels, small crackers or fruit.
I found my liners at Tuesday Morning. You can also get them here at Amazon:
Another way to bring color to your cupcakes is to use cupcake wrappers. I used to make my own from scrap booking paper but they are now readily available and cheap that it's not worth the time anymore.
