Shining & Shimmering Frozen Birthday Party
Shimmering Frozen Birthday Party Details:
This is what Cristina said about the party- “Every little girl I know is obsessed with Frozen, so to my delight I got to style a Frozen inspired birthday party for my friend’s daughter this winter.
Ana turned 8 years old in February, and it was the perfect occasion to go all out and create a magical frosted wonderland to celebrate her birthday, using Bird’s Party new printable collection Snow Princess, which is perfect for this theme!
The Styling & DIY Décor
My daughter is also quite mad about this theme and helped me with lots of creative suggestions. I love when kids are the inspiration for the parties I style!
For the main desserts table, we wanted to re-create the Frozen scenery, but with ease! So we turned to a large printable backdrop design of the castle, which we printed as A0 size. It was such and easy way to create an instant, jaw-dropping backdrop, and the print can also be sued for photo booths and to decorate Ana’s bedroom after the party!
On either side of the backdrop, we hung some tasseled honeycomb ball decorations from BirdsParty.fr to complete the look.
We used the printable stationery and decorations to decorate the main desserts table and also a super fun cupcake fondue station, which doubled as party activities for the girls!
Food & Drinks
Despite the amazing details, this was such an easy party to style and organize, since the cupcake fondue idea allowed us to concentrate mainly on the decorations!
For the chocolate fondue station we served the plain cupcakes and the girls had tons of fun decorating their tasty creations!
Each place setting had a cute ice cream tub, filled with vanilla meringues for the girls to take home as favors. We wrapped a free printable Olaf wrapper, from Bird’s Party, for the cute, Frozen inspired detail.
The table was also decorated with a 3D printable centerpiece of castle, and we hung a couple of silhouette frames on the wall behind the table. Simple, yet super adorable!
On the main desserts table we had to have an Elsa doll cake! It has been a dream of mine to bake one of these cakes, and I was so happy I got the chance to make one for Ana! I love how it turned out, and it sure was the wow factor of the table! Full tutorial can be found at Bird’s Party.
As far as drinks, we served milk that was a perfect pairing for the yummy chocolate cupcake station. We wrapped each bottle with a melted snow wrapper. We all know that water is melted snow, but we always allow ourselves a little poetic license when it comes to kids parties ;)
Candy Station & Party Favors
We also set up a mini candy station on the table, so the girls could fill their snowflake goodie bags before leaving the party, which made for such a fun and easy party favor for all!
Party Photo Booth
No party of mine is ever complete without a photo booth! It’s a such a fun way to capture memories.
After cutting the cake, the girls got to sit down to do some crafts by decorating their own princess tiaras and crown, and helping to make the photo booth props. We used printable templates from BirdsParty.com and party straws.
I love it when a party activity also has a practical side!”
