This is a very late post on the Frozen Party we threw for Little Miss I’s birthday. The reason is because as I was putting pictures together, I just took a very few of the event, and not particularly paying attention to the decorations or food… so I had to go around asking friends and family to supply the photographic material to do a write up on the event and what I did.
First I found these very cute and FREE party printables from Homeketeers. Click here for the link for the Frozen Party set I used for invites, cake toppers and such.
After much thought, I decided to make an Olaf cheese snowman (click for the recipe) with pretzel and carrot sticks as appetizer, which I served along with a “summer” fruit salad (combination of berries, mango and watermelon). We also had a snow cone maker with blue raspberry syrup station. Here are some pictures of the snowman, but no one took pictures of the snow cones nor fruit salad (but there was no salad left).
For decorations, we got white swirls to hang from the patio, doilies to put on the screen door as snowflakes as well as snowmen stickies for the glass. Inside the house we blew tons of white and blue balloons and also had about a dozen filled with gas, silver and white strings floating loose as strings of snow falling. I got a Frozen piñata too.
For dinner I served white mac and cheese and Sweedish meatballs. I got the recipes from Pinterest, but neither one of those was that great — so I yet have to find a couple of recipes like that to share. And what Frozen party would be complete without matching Anna and Elsa cakes?
3 leches filled with mango and covered with whipped cream and sugar crystals (the recipe for that I altered from a 3 leches I created for Rompope Coronado, and the recipe can be found here), and a Black Forest cake, made with the recipe of the Chocolate devil’s food cake and drizzled with a reduction of blackberry liquor, strawberries and whipped cream, and topped with whipped cream, ground cocoa and chocolate covered strawberries. The recipe for the Chocolate devil’s food cake is here.
I also made a Blueberry jello as a block of ice to serve with dessert. The whole thing together looked like this:
For entertainment we had a box filled with white frosted styrofoam balls to do a summer snow fight, and the kids liked that. We also had an actress from Happiness Unlimited come dressed as Elsa and she sang songs, did princess activities, a little magic show and painted faces. All the girls were very happy.
After Elsa left and we did the cake, Little Miss I and her invitees sat down to have dinner with the movie playing, marking like that the end of our very fun Frozen Party.For favors we did Elsa and Anna cups filled with a Frozen activity and sticker book, body jewels for the girls and glow in the dark sabers for the boys, Frozen stickers, artisanal lollipops and blue and white sugar candy sticks. I did not have any photos of how it all looked put together, but everyone was pretty happy with their goodies.
In a month we’ll have Tiny A’s 1st birthday party, and this time around I’ll make sure to take pictures to share! The theme so far seems to be Under the Sea, and I’m already collecting ideas for the party on my Pinterest board.
