Ever since we saw Frozen on Boxing Day, Polly has been obsessed… she loves the movie, her favourite is of course Elsa, but she especially loves the soundtrack. So when conversations turned to birthday plans for this year, Polly’s choice was easy. Frozen party it is! Because she’s in Kindy this year, it was also Polly’s first birthday party with her own group of friends invited as well her cousins and sisters, so we wanted it to be a bit special.
We ordered a customised print it yourself invitation from Lemon Avenue Designs on Etsy. We printed them on some pearly paper and added a couple of stick on diamonds to a couple of the snowflakes for a little extra sparkle.
To decorate we made lots of paper snowflakes and also cut out the Frozen chandelier shape from aqua glittery card. We hung these behind the party table, all along our back veranda. We kept the sparkles going with a glittery table skirt, although you can’t really tell that from the photos, it was a very bright and sunny day! There are lots of templates for making paper snowflakes around on the interwebs… we mainly used these two.
We also had some smaller snowflakes cut out of glittery card to hang in between the bigger paper ones.
As our guests arrived, we had some glittery blue crowns waiting for all the little princesses, I got these from Ruby Rabbit at the Brisbane Confetti Fair earlier this year.
Polly was a big lucky and received the Elsa costume as an earlier birthday present from her Melbourne cousins and we gave her the Anna costume, so her big sister got to wear that one.
We played pin the nose on Olaf, and musical stautes with the soundtrack. For prizes I had made ugly but kid-tastic Frozen hair bows. When I say ‘made’ I bought these Frozen bottle cap images from ebay and I also bought some hair bows from Little Miss Issy on madeit. The girls loved them.
We had the most amazing face painter, Ainslie – she did beautiful Frozenesque designs, they were beautiful. Seriously, if you’re in the Brisbane area and ever need a face painter she is amazing (and so lovely!)
Of course, the birthday girl decided she wanted to be a bit different (as is her want) and went with a “rainbow butterfly unicorn”. Still beautiful, and ever so Polly.
We ate snowy cupcakes, snowflake gingerbreads, sparkly doughnuts and white chocolate crackles amongst a few other treats.
The birthday cake was a dolly varden Elsa cake, which Polly helped me decorate by sticking the snowflakes on.
For the party bags we made little ‘icicle’ bracelets with clear beads from Spotlight, a playdough ‘snowball’ with white glittery playdough.
All in all, we had a lovely birthday celebrating our little 4 year old!
