Faithy bug is 7 now!! When I asked what kind of party she wanted, she went back and forth between so many things to do, then her last few decisions, I had to prompt her to do something a little more girly…. I had girls to be able to do girly stuff not boy stuff!! I don’t mind doing it, but several of her birthdays haven’t been as girly as I’d hoped, so I really pushed for something else besides TMNT, …. when I suggested Frozen, her eyes lit up and I knew we had hit a jackpot! I played up the theme with Elsa as much as possible with a few things from the other characters, but SHE was going to be the center of it because it’s GIRLY. :) Yay for success. haha
Birthday Girl! All she wanted for her birthday, besides clothes, was a Elsa dress up. I searched EVERYWHERE and they were all stinkin’ sold out!! I couldn’t believe it! I kept calling the Disney Store every week when they got their shipments in to see if they finally got some in- much to my dismay they kept telling me they didn’t know when it was going to arrive. I really was starting to fume smoke outta my ears; ridiculous that with a movie as popular as that, they should be stocked up to the wazoo with merchandise! Silly that I got so upset, but man…. unless I wanted to pay over $200 online, I wasn’t gonna get anything. I’m feeling the rage again as I type. hah ;)
Even though Faith was disappointed about no dress, I did happen to find an Elsa wand :/ better than nothing I guess…
For the Food we had:
Ice Shards (melted jolly ranchers, broken)
Snowman Parts/ Carrots with fresh Snow dip (ranch)
Marshmallow Pops (Did you snow the big snow monster’s name is Marshmallow?)
Snow Cap Punch
Jello ‘Ice Cubes’
Ice Cream Cake with Elsa and rock candy ‘trees’
For the Favors:
Ice Crystal wands (clear rock candy) with tags.
I loved these giant Snowflakes! Made out of glitter card stock, they were super easy to make and added the perfect touch!
Because I could barely find anything, I printed and laminated my own characters and stood them up in half styrofoam balls, right along with the signs I made. Worked out great!!
I bought the standup of the girls online, then made the Olaf one myself.
I love that my chandelier went perfect with the theme! Some people asked if I got it for the party………… ummm.. I tried not to laugh :)
Giant glittery snowflake to greet the guests…
The girls sung their hearts out and danced to “Let it Go”!
“Ice Painting” with epsom salt
“Do you wanna build a snowman?”
Cold Snowball (like hot potato with a styrofoam “snowball”)
Then they watched Frozen as they ate their cake and ice cream, waiting for their parents. Fun times, but friend parties are crrrrrazy. :)
The next day, on her actual birthday, we had a family party that was much less crazy! Such a fun party all weekend long!
