Last Sunday we celebrated BG2’s 3rd birthday with a Disney’s Frozen-themed party. Let me tell you, it was not an easy feat! I didn’t know Frozen party supplies were basically sold out everywhere, not to mention their costumes or even their toys, all gone!
Luckily, we managed as best we could. I basically stuck to a blue and white theme, especially with the table. I tried to have some blue and white treats, blue & white favor bags with at least SOME Frozen stuff in it, a blue drink for the kids, and I had planned on a specially-made Frozen cake. I also had some Frozen balloons, to solidify the theme, lol.
In the end, things worked out fine. Not exactly as detailed and nice as I wanted, but it worked.
I got both the Olaf and Anna/Elsa balloon from Amazon, and blew it up at Party City. You really can’t find these balloons anywhere else right now (believe me, I looked), but I’m happy with how they turned out. They’re pretty big, the kids loved them, and I liked that they didn’t pop when they were blown up (my biggest concern).
After countless treks to every Toys R’ Us, Target, & Disney store in our (and surrounding) area, my SIL thankfully found an Elsa dress near her. This was probably the biggest hit for BG2. She loved wearing this dress, and her aunt bought her cute shoes to match and did her hair in an “Elsa braid”, so she was a very happy Birthday Girl. Let’s also say that this girl would not let this dress go and continued to wear it for 3-4 days after the party, too.
As for treats…
I bought some of those Flipz white chocolate covered pretzels and my SIL drizzles blue frosting over all of them. I was surprised I couldn’t find a big tub of these pretzels, but luckily those bags weren’t too expensive, so it worked out fine.
By far the biggest hit for the kids and guest in general, treat-wise, was the blue jello. I mixed it that morning into a square pan, and cut them up into “jigglers” using a knife. It was a pain to get them out of that pan, but people ate them up, so that’s good!
I also bought some plain ole’ giant marshmallows, which I probably would’ve turned into some kind of fun activity for the kids if we had more bigger kids there.
Powdered donuts were also a must “white treat”, lol.
Another big hit, especially for the kids, was the blue rock candy. It was funny to see all the kids with blue mouths by the end of the day. I got these from Party City and a styrofoam cone from A.C. Moore, and really loved the look of it.
Now, the cake. That actually was a bit of a problem. I originally planned on having a custom-made cake, but things didn’t work out with the baker I hired (all last minute, too, which freaked me out), so I simply went to my local supermarket and bought a simple cake and stuck those Anna and Elsa toys on it. It was really more for looks and BG2 to smash up, since we had cupcakes for everyone. It wasn’t anything fancy, but it did its job right.
And here is the whole table for your viewing pleasure. Overall, I was pleased with the look.
The cupcakes were actually made by my sister with blue frosting and some white powder sprinkled on them. They were very yummy!
We also had some blue Kool-aid for the kids to drink as well.
For the favors, we managed to find Frozen stickers and a Frozen light-up badge from Wal-Mart, the rest of the little toys we got from Party City.
And of course, she got a bunch of Frozen gifts, among other things. Overall, she was very happy with the day, even belting out the “Let It Go” song in front of everyone when it came on the TV (we had the movie playing all day). People enjoyed plenty of food and we all had fun just hanging out. A success!
