A Frozen Birthday Party
Planning a BIG 4 year old birthday party with 4 simple requests from the birthday girl:
1) a Frozen birthday party including an Elsa dress
2) her OWN camera to take pictures
3) all her friends to come play at her house and
4) a bonfire with S’mores
Not a problem kiddo … DONE, DONE, DONE & DONE!
First Request; a Frozen Birthday Party: She received that perfect dress even complete with an Elsa tiara! I might add, she was smiling all day!
Next, pulling together the Frozen theme with the perfect decor & food to make her party sparkle!
Centerpieces: I simply took blue ball jars I had on hand and used as a vase for a sunflower and baby’s breath then set that on a large acrylic snowflake to tie in the Frozen theme
Gift Opening Area: I put a Frozen themed banner between trees and brought out the birthday girl’s favorite rocking chair and lightly decorates the table with pom poms & decorative fans using frozen colors.
Food Cards- I purchased glitter paper at my local arts & crafts store, found free Frozen images online and did a design layout in a design program. I printed the food cards on Avery Labels then placed the labels on the glitter paper and used my paper cutter to cut them out with a glitter border. I then added a little extra “sparkle” with these ornament card holders perfect for the Frozen themed party!
Our fun frozen menu consisted of themed items:
– Troll Stones (Swedish Meatballs)
– “We Finish Each Others Sandwiches” (BYO sandwich bar)
– Olaf Noses (carrots)
– Sven’s Antlers (twisted pretzels)
– Olaf Cheese (string cheese with Olaf drawn on them)
– Mac-n-Cheese (birthday girls FAVORITE food)
– Frozen Hearts (white chocolate covered strawberries)
– Snow Flurries (popcorn)
– “A Kiss To Melt A Frozen Heart” (Hershey’s kisses)
– Kristoff’s Ice (blue jello cubes)
– Ana’s Knock Out Punch (purple punch) which was served in mini plastic toddler cups with lids! SUPER CUTE!
– Melted Snow (water)
– Cake & Cupcakes: I don’t like to spend a fortune on cake, so I typically buy a cake for the kids and cupcakes for the adults from a local bakery. I keep both simple and add fluff on my own and this saves me a fortune I feel! For this cake I had the bakery add the pearls and snowflakes and I added the Frozen cake toppers, the #4 cake topper and the cake banner. Everything can be reused for another party and the Frozen toppers were an extra gift to the birthday girl which she loved!
– I purchased 3 rectangle table cloths to make the banner hanging on the wall. You simply lay them on top of each other, attach with tape then cut into strips up to about 4 inches from the top then braid. I added finishing touches by adding some leftover snowflakes from the photo booth onto the brades and a framed Olaf quote.
– I wanted to spice up the food table a little more so I put a cute table tutu along the bar and covered the food tops with a white table cloth.
Second Request: she received a special NEW camera that is all hers! Her first “big girl” present; this Polaroid digital camera is the perfect kids starter camera!! It’s cheap, digital and you can get it in fun kids colors.
We made this request fun with a special Frozen photo booth where she could take pictures of her guests with new camera; then she could look back & remember the special day! I made the backdrop from clearance ribbon at the local craft stores, the pom poms strings were from the dollar store & a banner from the dollar spot at Target. I used these glue dots to arrange the snowflakes on the ribbon finishing it off with an Elsa cardboard prop!
I had my hubby help me build a collapsible backdrop frame for this party; though they are pretty cheap to buy. I have my eye on this one, it’s affordable has great reviews and is an Amazon recommended product.
Third Request: Frozen Birthday invites were sent out along with a save the date Facebook event to ensure we could accomplish her third request and it was a SUCCESS! We had a great group of family & friends that arrived to celebrate her special day. A party complete with Elsa Ice (silly string), “Do You Want To Build A Snowman?” station with mold-able “snow” and an Olaf piñata filled with the birthday girls’ favorite candy!
Fourth & Final Request: we had a bonfire complete with a S’mores bar and relaxed as the kiddos roasted marshmallows and played on the swing set.
