Frozen Birthday Party : Auburn Birthday Photographer

Like many other little girls out there these days, my daughter requested a Frozen theme for her 7th birthday. Once we saw the movie in November, she was pretty set on this theme and never wavered. This worked in my favor because I was able to pic up a ton of winter and snowflake items on clearance after Christmas…score! I put them away for 6 months and they all came in quite handy for the party. Since Frozen party items (heck any items) are so hard to find, I had to get creative with the decorations and do a lot myself or just use things that reminded me of Frozen. I actually think it worked out even better this way!

Since the party was just going to be 8 little girls, I kept the food really simple. I found adorable printable food cards on Etsy and came up with a few food ideas I thought the girls would like. We had PB&J sandwiches (We Finish Each Other’s Sandwiches), Frozen Grapes (Anna’s Frozen Hearts), Pretzel Sticks (Sven’s antlers), Baby Carrots with ranch dip (Olaf’s noses), Blue jello squares (Kristoff’s Ice Blocks), and Blue tropical punch (Elsa’s melted snow). I also decided to forgo a cake or cupcakes and try my hand at Cake Push ups! These were a hit and SO easy! I was able to find the supplies online and used plastic Frozen rings as the toppers. Perfect!

I found some cute plates and napkins in the Target Dollar bins that reminded me of snowflakes and matched the colors of Anna and Elsa’s dresses. For decor I made some paper snowflakes and some glitter snowflake ornaments I had on hand from my Christmas mini sessions. I also printed out a banner and found a poster at Walmart for just $5 which now lives in my daughter’s room.

Finally for favors, we got each girl a blue sparkly crown from Joann’s for $1, made them rainbow loom bracelets, found plastic cups with Anna and Elsa on them, and got some blue rock candy that looked like ice.

I had the movie playing (when the songs came on the girls jumped up and sang), played Frozen bingo (so fun!, printable found on Etsy, and Pin The Nose on Olaf). All in all it was an awesome party. The girls had fun and my daughter said it was “the best party ever”. Chalk one up for mommy 🙂 And now no more birthday talk until next year. Yay! bdayblogbdayblog2
