Goose just turned 4 recently and her birthday party theme of choice…Frozen! Because of course. Luckily for me, there are a TON of fabulous frozen themed birthday party ideas online. Pinterest, anyone? And since our pool was finished earlier this year we turned it into a Frozen pool party!
Since I don’t show faces in any of my blog post pictures, I’m not able to share too many of the wonderful pictures we captured that day but I’m super excited to share with you some of the ideas I used to create this Frozen party.
Let’s talk balloons. Balloons are darn expensive. I had no idea because I can’t even remember the last time I purchased balloons. The Dollar Tree sells them too so that may be a less expensive option. Any who, to spruce up our balloons, I sewed paper snowflakes onto thread and attached the thread to the balloon. This falling snowflake garland idea came from Oh Happy Day.
I also added some paper snowflakes to a table, for extra festive-ness (maybe that’s not a word but you get the idea.) To make the paper snowflakes I used this Martha Stewart X-Large Fancy Snowflake Punch.
Goose really, really wanted party hats. That was her one main request, besides the Elsa cake which I’ll get to shortly. I made these hats from a printable pack I purchased from ThePartyCorner on Etsy. And it’s a good thing I made these because Goose wore her party hat the whole time. Wait, no. She didn’t wear her hat at all. It was a pool party and I guess pools and party hats don’t really mix…
I also found these super cute straws on Etsy. You can get them from Twigsandtwirlsllc.
Now, let’s talk food and beverage, shall we? We had her party in the late afternoon so we provided finger foods rather than a meal. For the beverages, we had water bottles with cute Frozen labels (from the printable pack mentioned above) and a drink dispenser with lemonade and blue Hawaiian punch. I called them Elsa’s Icy Lemonade and Punch. I know, genius. Food tents are from the Frozen printable on Etsy also.
Here we have some Magical Party Dip (from She Saved) and graham crackers.
And how cute are these snowman popcorn cups (from Creative Kid Snacks)? I was fortunate enough that a friend of mine, let’s call her Mrs. Depp, took the time to put these together for me. Aren’t they adorable?!
Olaf’s Crunchy Snacks…
Meatballs, grape jelly and BBQ sauce in the crockpot made up Kristoff’s Troll Family (you know, because they look like rocks…). I also had Sven Snacks, which was carrots and ranch dip, but I forgot to take a picture…These two ideas came from Smashed Peas and Carrots.
For goodie bags, I put together these little Do You Want to Build a Snowman (again, printable) bags with 3 marshmallows, 2 pretzel sticks, candy eyes and Rainbow Chip Crunch for the nose and buttons. I actually didn’t notice until well after her party that what I thought were black chips were actually purple. But it’s REALLY hard to tell the difference so I’d still say go ahead and use them.
I also made some Sparkly Snowball Playdough, using my basic playdough recipe and adding Peppermint extract and blue glitter.
Here is the birthday girl taking a swing at her Frozen pinata which I bought at our local party supply store.
Take a look at this awesome Frozen cake! I found the Elsa figurine on Amazon and gave it to a local baker who then made this amazing cake. Goose was ecstatic! Her name was on the front, hence the blue rectangle in the picture (because I don’t share real names either)…
Goose’s big gift from us was a Barbie Dune Racer. To find her surprise we had her follow a trail of Olaf footprints from our front door to our driveway. The footprints were 4 inch circles that Mrs. Depp cut out for me using a circle cutter. Goose was so excited. To this day she says Olaf brought her the car. Not really our intention to give Olaf all the credit but oh well.
Here is Baby Bird collecting the footprints.
I don’t have any pics to share of the outdoor pool festivities because they all show faces but just know that the kids (and adults!) had a lot of fun!
Goose had a blast at her Frozen themed birthday party! Do you have a favorite idea for a Frozen themed birthday party? Please share in the comments!
