2014 was definitely the year of Frozen! Frozen is everywhere; there are backpacks, sheets, pajamas, you name it! If you haven’t seen the movie you are missing out… It really is a cute film, for all ages – boys and girls! This year there were a ton of birthday parties with the theme of Frozen. My niece, Capri, turned 5 this year and of course, she requested a Frozen birthday party. Instead of a traditional Frozen birthday party, we went for more of a ‘Frozen inspired’ party, and my, she loved it!
The decor was simple but beautiful. I knew we wanted the Elsa silhouette to be the main focal point of the backdrop, and I really think it tied all of the decor together! The Elsa silhouette was attached to large particle board that was painted to look like a pallet so that it would not be too heavy to move and so we could hang it on her wall as wall-art when we were finished with the party.
We used a blue sparkle fabric from our local fabric store, Hancock Fabrics as the tablecloth for the table, and two apothecary jars were set on the table with Anna and Elsa peg dolls placed inside. The snowflakes and string icicles were hung inside the window frames to create a dreamy, winter-wonderland feel. The cookies were decorated as Olaf and snowflakes; those of course, were a huge hit! The clear, confetti-filled balloons were helium filled on the sides of the table with a large number 5, because let’s face it… a party without balloons is really just a meeting!
The two powered-doughnut towers and the blue ombre three-tiered cake were such a great element. The kids loved the way that they looked on the table and so did I. They added just the right height and look to our food table! Plus, they were a delicious, sweet treat for all to enjoy! There was “Arendelle Water” (a blue sports drink mixed with a clear soda), “Melted Snowman” (water) served for the kids and sangria for the adults! There was an Olaf made out of moving boxes, spray paint and construction paper because you can’t have a Frozen party without Olaf!We even had a special surprise visitor come all the way from Arendelle to her party. Elsa came and helped Capri blow out her candles, and sent all the kids home with a sticker and a picture. There are so many fun Frozen party ideas out there, and I had a great time party planning and decorating. I love this party because you can use most of the decor for other things around the house, which makes staying in budget easier. Plus, I can always use some the decorations again when I want to host a winter-themed or a Christmas party!One of my favorite things to do at a party is to purchase a book with the same theme as the party that I am planning and to set it out for the all of the guests to sign. It is so fun to look back at all the books and it’s a great keepsake for when kids get bigger.
We sent all the kids home with a Frozen Golden Book as a party favor to enjoy with their families – we had Elsa sign the insides of all of the books so each family could have Elsa’s autograph on their books. We finished out the party with a pinata and sno-cones for all the children! Capri had a wonderful time and LOVED her party! I loved styling this party and seeing her face light up with joy!
