You are in for a special treat with this Winter wonderland, snowman-special Frozen party submitted by Jamie Forsythe of Sweet Jelly Parties
out of Mission Viejo, CA, USA!
Frozen Inspired Winter Wonderland Party
Wouldn’t you think the landscape of Arendelle is always dotted with adorable snowmen modeled after the endearing Olaf? I can picture every boy and girl out with warm mittens, lumps of coal, and perfect carrot noses out rolling snow into perfectly sized mounds and laughing as they struggle to place them one atop the other. After they place the final touches, they run inside to enjoy a cup of hot cocoa by the fire and sweet treats just like the ones found in this party.
These are the details you simply cant miss from this enchanting Arendelle affair:
- Snowflake sandwiches
- Kids tables centered around Arendelle character’s
- Creative winter and Frozen character-inspired food
- Pom-pom snowballs for an indoor snowball fight
- Snowman made from coffee filters
- Hanging snowflake decorations
- Glitter trees!
Frozen Inspired Winter Wonderland Party Details:
This is what Jamie said about designing/styling the party- “The majority of the Frozen parties I see are all geared toward Elsa so I thought how fun would it be to show off each character with their own kids table.
My inspiration for Anna’s table was based off of her dress. I used a pretty royal blue tablecloth to represent her skirt. The stool covers were large circles cut out of an existing tablecloth I had that was the perfect shade of pink to represent her cape. A couple small accents of black like the napkins and straws were used to represent her bodice and boots. The table was topped with some great Re Play products in colors of bright pink, purple and sky blue to bring in those final touches from her dress.
I pulled inspiration from Elsa’s dress as well for her table and threw in a pop of lavender for the tablecloth. If you look closely you’ll see Elsa’s eye shadow is lavender so the extra color really helped to separate all the blues and white. Accents of silver glitter gave it that extra special detail since she is the Ice Queen after all. I gave 4 of my handy kids stools from Ikea two coats of silver spray paint and then a coat of spray glitter. Did you know they make glitter spray paint? For someone like me whose favorite color is glitter it’s the greatest thing ever. You can usually find it at any craft store or at Home Depot. The stools were then topped with a cover made by my handy mama, in a pretty sheer fabric with snowflake accents found on Fabric.com Elsa’s tabletop consisted of Replay products in white, aqua and sky blue. I kept the centerpieces for both of the sisters tables pretty simple. Some fake snow topped with a round vase of more fake snow and a pretty snowflake floating inside. The snowflake theme was carried throughout with accents on all the silverware and used for decor around the food table.
Last but not least and my favorite of all three tables is Olaf. I really wanted to set this one apart and give all the little boys that come to the party something different. Wood stumps to sit on to represent Olaf’s arms, a tablecloth as white as snow and a carrot centerpiece almost pretty enough to eat but since they were plastic probably not a good idea. The Replay products featured are white, orange and sky blue. Black napkins were used to represent his accents like that famous smile.
The backdrop for where the kids sat was a last minute addition and proof that not everything goes as planned. I happened to come across a shimmery paper tablecloth at Party City that morning when picking up napkins so I bought two and covered the walls with them. I hung them up right away in hopes to get the creases out from the fold lines but that didn’t help. I was running short on time and being the perfectionist that I am, was just about to take them down because they had too many wrinkles. Just then my daughter says “We have an ice wall, this is amazing!!” So there you have it, my amazing giant wall of wrinkly ice.
Food, drinks and treats were all served up from one table. I made a Glacier Freeze drink by using some blue Gatorade and diluting it with some water and ice cubes. Mini water bottles with labels from Swish Printables were given an added touch of sparkle by adding rhinestones to the center of the snowflakes. For food the kids “finished each others sandwiches.” Turkey breast snowflake sandwiches. Snowman noses, pretzel stick antlers, frozen grapes, and yogurt parfaits topped with frozen hearts were all served up in Re-play snack cups. Sweet treats were Anna inspired cupcakes and color coordinated candies to fill some “Thank you snow much” goodie bags to take home. I used an existing snowman that I made out of coffee filters from a previous party and added some twigs and branches to make him look more like Olaf.
After all the eats and treats were gone the kids burned off some energy with an indoor snowball fight. These were displayed on the floor in front of the food table with a cute little sign made by Swish Printables as well. Check out her website for more coordinating items. I live in Southern California so it’s still sunny and warm around Christmas time. Since real snowballs would melt faster than Olaf sitting by the fire I made fake ones from yarn”.
