Abby’s Frozen Birthday Party

I know that last year you guys loved reading about Abby’s Wizard of Oz party so I figure that I will share this year’s party too!
Abby turned 5 this weekend and like so many other little girls she wanted a Frozen Party. I’m not really into character parties which is good because all of the Frozen stuff is sold out anyway and spending $40 on hard to find Olaf napkins is just insanity. So, we made it happen without any of the cheesy character stuff.
This year Abby wanted to be super involved in the party process and it made for a great bonding experience! We spent hours at Michael’s and Hobby Lobby picking out things in every shade of blue and silver. The big mesh runners were so perfect and we used them all over the place. We also bought more stick on jewels than you would think possible and some super clearance winter limbs/spray. We didn’t have a master plan but instead just brought home bag of stuff and just let it all fall into place.
- Cake. A basic $20 Target cake. I bought rock candy and broke it up to make the castle. We put her to Frozen Magi clip dolls on top. Easy Peasy.
- Popcorn. Drizzled blue candy melt.
- ‘In Summer snack mix’. Super easy with just mini marshmallows, chocolate circles, candy corn and pretzel sticks. It was a great little snack for the kids.
- Snowman – Marshmallows attached with candy melt with pretzel arms.
- Marshmallow sticks. Again, candy melt. We just dipped and then covered in sprinkles and stuck a stick in them.
- Sandwiches. Seriously. Playing off the ‘you and me, we finish each others sandwiches’ line from the movie this was so easy.
- Mac and Cheese / Pigs in a Blanket
- Juiceboxes, soda, water
- Adult beverages. Beer, wine, Snow Queen Vodka,Blue Raspberry UV and Sprite in a big dispenser.
- Wands. Super cheap at Hobby Lobby.
- Rock Candy in three colors.
- Necklaces that we made together. We bought beads on ebay and then used twine and ribbon to make them.
- Lots of Balloons
- We can’t have a party without friends! We use birthdays as a chance to gather all of our friends together both children and adults. We love to have it last into the evening and let kids play while parents chat. Everyone has a great time and head home at bedtime with some tired kids!
