My daughter had her third birthday party last month. In January I started asking her what kind of party she wanted. She kept saying Frozen. I kept giving her other suggestions. I know I am a bad mom. I just felt like the Frozen thing had been done too much and I wanted to do something different. Then I realized it was not about me. She wanted a Frozen birthday party and a Frozen birthday party she was going to get.
I also used a printable for the party favors. I told you I made it easy on myself. I wanted it to be cute, but knew I couldn't do everything myself. So I utilized other people's talents. These party favors were so easy to put together. I used bags from Stampin Up and placed the marshmallows, chocolate chips, pretzel sticks, and an orange tictac in the bag and stapled the cute printable on the top. EASY!
I started putting up the decor about a week early. Anything that could be done before hand was done early. This way I didn't tire myself out too much.
This chalkboard was one of the first things to go up. The poster was from Joann. I got it for an amazing price so I didn't pass it up. My husband gets all the credit for the writing. Once again the banner is a printable. This was the backdrop for our food table.
The "Happy Birthday" banner was another printable.
The photo backdrop was another part that went up early. I cut out the snowflakes with my Cricut and attached them to a blue plastic tablecloth. The Olaf poster was lent to me by a friend.
The tulle was something else I could do before hand. It went from the center of the room to all areas of the room and draped down the walls. It was a fun touch.
I was going to add figurines to the top of the cake to give it more dimension, but Hannelore really wanted these candles and I decided to do one or the other. I kind of wish I would have done figurines. I guess you have to have one regret, right? It still turned out really cute.
If I haven't mentioned lately I gained a new sister right around this birthday party. My brother got married exactly a week later! I found out that my new sister-in-law liked to make cakes. Since I had never attempted I asked her if she would help me. Since she is so kind she did and Hannelore loved the way the cake and the cupcakes turned out.
I got the plates and the cups from Walmart in the party section. That is also where I got the candles for the cake.
The table cloth was actually a white sheet (twin sized) with a plastic white lace table cloth over it (which I got at Walmart).
Now on to the food. I did not make as much food this year because last year I had a ton of leftovers from the Bubble Guppies birthday party. I tried to make most of it kid friendly, but had to throw in a salad for the adults. All of the food labels were printables as well.
White Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
Carrots with ranch dip and pretzel sticks
Caesar Salad-I forgot to get a picture of the actual salad. It was nothing special though. Just a plain old Caesar salad.
Grapes, crackers, and cheese
Ice Water-Again I forgot about a picture of the ice water, but nothing too crazy.
Punch-Recipe provided here
We played one game right after eating. It was Pin the Nose on Olaf. Since I got 2 Olaf posters from my friend I just traced Olaf's nose on the poster and cut out orange colored noses. The kids did not know what to think about putting the noses on while being blind folded. It was a weird concept to grasp.
Now the the big surprise. Hannelore and the kids (okay who am I kidding...even adults) all freaked out when they saw the next surprise.
When a special guest walked through the door. Her face is priceless.
She got a warm hug right away! She could not contain her excitement.
Drawing pictures together.
Learning how to make snow. This part is something Hannelore will NOT stop talking about. She loves making snow.
The other kids jumped in a little after this picture was taken. Hannelore loves to dance. She did not have to be asked twice.
She was so happy the whole time. She still can't believe she came to HER party!
I HAVE to to give you information for her if you want to have her come to your next party. She was absolutely perfect for the kids. She played the part better than I thought possible. She did a Coronation Ceremony for Hannelore and made her a queen. She played games and many other activities.
Here is her information, if you live in Utah you should contact her because her prices are amazing and she did not skimp out on the service and the presentation! She has different packages to meet everyone's needs.
The Snow Princess
Overall, I would say this party was a success. This little girl loved all the attention she received. She loved people singing Happy Birthday to her. She loved the whole day. She still talks about her party; to me that is a sign that the party was great!
