Last year we didn’t do a birthday party for Malea because we took her to Disneyland. So for the last year I’ve heard approximately 5,852 birthday party ideas, as she dreamed up all the things she wanted to do for her 5 year old party. After countless theme ideas the Disney movie, FROZEN, came out and Malea said, “Mommy this is my last birthday party idea, I promise. I want a Frozen party!” And so it began, dreaming up the perfect Frozen birthday party for my baby girl who was about to turn 5.
First and foremost you have to start with an awesome invitation, so of course I called on my friend from Wehrley Bird Graphics to create a Frozen invitation for the party.
I also did some searching around on Pinterest for Frozen birthday party ideas and found tons of great ideas! Here are some pictures of my party decorations at the food table.
Sparkly trees made with glittery scrapbook paper from Michaels.
“Icicles” placed in one of the glass vases I made at the Michaels Pinterest Party.
I absolutely loved the way the cake turned out. Malea said she had wanted an “ice castle” but I knew that was beyond my skill set so I settled for an ice cream cake with icicles on top.
The Elsa and Anna castle made the perfect backdrop for the rest of the items on the table.
If you want to make your own icicles you can find the recipe here. I also thought it would be fun to have dry ice in the punch so it would look really frozen. The kids loved the effect and got a kick out of it.
Here’s a look at the whole table. I found the snowflakes and sparkly ornaments at a Christmas clearance sale which worked out to be perfect timing for our Frozen party!
And yes those are my legs in the mirror, and yes I am wearing sweatpants. I was in my sweats until about an hour before the party, just trying to get everything finished and ready.
We had a ton of kids (about 24) but were able to get in a couple of games, pin the nose on Olaf and dress up your friend like a snowman.
My oldest daughter drew the big Olaf for the game and then Malea got excited and drew the little one as an “example” for where to put the nose.
After pinning the nose on Olaf I split them into 3 teams and gave them each a roll of toilet paper. They picked one person on the team and wrapped them up in the toilet paper to make them look like a snowman.
The game was a hit but the funnest part was when they all ripped the toilet paper off and got in a huge “snowball” fight. I hadn’t thought about it turning into that but I think the “snowball” fight was the best part of the party! My entire living room was covered in pieces of toilet paper!
The party was a big success and most importantly Malea had so much fun! I’m glad she ended up picking Frozen for her birthday party theme because it was a fun theme and all the kids loved it!
