Frozen Birthday party

The movie just came out few weeks ago and My husband and I took the kids to see it. My daughter fell in love with it that she requested her party to be frozen. There was not much online as the movie is so new and I had hard time purchasing a lot of the stuff and hunting it down.


I used a picture online and use paint shop to edit and add the text.
In a magical kingdom beneath a blanket of white
lives a princess who's full of delight
Her ice castle is ready for you
for this princess is so true
The gates are open
as we celebrate
princess Anastasia's Birthday
Do you want to build a snow man?
come on let's go and play
Hitch a ride on a snowflake and come celebrate with us
because some people are just worth melting for.



I purchased snow flakes from oriental trading and put it on the ground in the Entrance. I was intending to add icicles but the store was out of stock.

I also made a wreath. Basically it is a card board cut in a circle shape. I added a picture of my daughter with Elsa and Anna from our Disneyland visit. I also added cotton. I wrote " The gates are open" from the movie and her name.

I added signs on the door handle. I got it from a site online. I have it on my pinterset. I can email it to you if you couldn't find it. One from the front and the other from the back.



My color theme was white and blue. Everything purchased is either from party city after a long hunting or oriental trading.

The scenery is a generic one and I added Olaf sticker on it.

I only made 2 table center pieces. Olaf is not my idea, I saw it on pintreset and I loved it. It is made from pillow stuffing and glue spray.

The other, is from a round Styrofoam. Elsa is a printed picture from online. I used BBQ sticks to make stand.

I made 3 games for the kids to entertain them before Elsa joins the fun.
1- Do you want to build a snow man.
I divided the kids into two teams. Team Elsa and team Anna. I made a dice from a white gift box, added eyes, hair, arms, nose, eyes and buttons. I purchased 3 different sizes Styrofoam balls. Stuck them together with a BBQ sticks and mounted them on foam board. The game who can build the snowman faster. The kids from each team, take turns to roll the dice.

2- Ring toss on the snow flake.

I printed a snow flake like a poster (in the printer settings). Traced it on foam board. It has to be really thick to hold still. Cut it. I drew the top shape on another foam board but thinner one and cut it. I cut an opening in the middle of the snow flake and attached the other part. (like a puzzle)

Foam board was purchased from hobby lobby.

3- Snow ball fight.

we did this game later. Right before the cake with Elsa the character. I used the left over pillow stuffing and the spray glue (from Olaf) and did fake snow balls. We don't get any snow in California :). The kids had a great time doing it and the adult played it too.

They all were winners and received Elsa and Anna's Crowns. For the boys, Reindeers.

Fun with Elsa:

Party Favors:
I purchased fleece from Joan's. I wanted one with snow flakes or Frozen but I couldn't find. It is very easy to make. A friend of mine taught me how to do them but you will find a lot of  tutorials on you tube. Just remember always use Joan's coupons. It saves tons of money and they can use more than one in one purchase :)

 This video below was my favorite part from the party :)

The kids had a blast and the grown ups too :)
