Baby's Frozen Birthday Party

For months, anytime the subject of a birthday party would come up, Baby would tell you she was having a Prince Hans party.  Yes, the Disney Frozen phenomenon penetrated our house like the plague. But, apparently she's not old enough to realize he's really Prince Jerkface.  I did love the fact that Disney threw in a surprise twist, though.


Anywho, we did up the Frozen theme and she couldn't have been happier about it.


I tried to use what we had around the house, and only bought minimal decorations.  I found a package of Frozen decorations at Target for $3.99, that we hung from the ceiling with balloons we already had.  Also at Target, in the dollar bins, were cardboard posters that you could color.  I got three of those and The Girl and I colored them.  The only other thing I bought was themed paper plates for cake.  My sister brought over a bag of snowflakes from my nieces Frozen birthday party.  Everything else was pulled from some random corner.

So here's the Frozen extravaganza at our house:













There are free printables all over the internet for fun Frozen-themed food labels.
You, of course, have to have ink in your printer for that to be of benefit.
So we had a couple silly themed snacks, without the labels.
As if anyone cared.








For snacks I did pretzels (Olaf arms), baby carrots (Olaf noses) with ranch, mixed nuts, orange wedges, and a meat tray with dried fruit.










I think the kids get the most excited about having a "special drink" on their birthdays.
This time around I made punch with blue Hawaiian fruit punch, lemon-lime soda, and pineapple juice.
I froze dollops of whipped cream on wax paper to make clouds for floating in it.
The goal was to make it look like Olaf "in summerrrrrrrr."
But my Olaf was a fail.
I'll still share photos, 'cause I'm nice like that.
Feel free to point and laugh.




Up next, the ghetto birthday cake.
I had a plan in my head, but it wasn't exactly executed the way I had envisioned.
The snowflakes around the edges were made from fondant sheets and a punch, also from my niece's Frozen party.
All the figurines on top are Baby's from Christmas.






Before dinner, we did presents.




I'm not sure how I managed to not get a single picture of food.
Highly unlike me.
She requested Mac n' Cheese, so I did a big pan of that, another pan of Tuna Casserole, Oven Roasted Garlic Mushrooms and Brussels Sprouts, and Cheesy Garlic Rolls.

After dinner we sang Happy Birthday and had cake and ice cream.













Third time's a charm.




Hot mess, but it was turquoise.




I have to throw in these pictures I took of The Dog at the end of the night.








In non-birthday related news, we started the kitchen backsplash this weekend.
FINALLY.
Woot, woot!!!!
I'm sooo excited to share what we ended up going with.
I think I'm most excited about finally having cover plates for the outlets and switches.  :)
Also, we got a lucky break for The Kid.
Instead of being on the regular 3-month waiting list to see a pediatric neurologist, he was bumped up to the cancellation waiting list.
I got a call at the end of the week and he's getting in tomorrow.
Yay!
Have a fantastic week.

  4. Hi Mindy,
    I think your Olaf in the punch bowl looked pretty awesome! What a great idea. The whole party looked amazing. Great job! That is also great news about being bumped up in line for the neurologist. And about that dog! What a hilarious group of photos. Talk about a "dog's life". I am pretty sure that is exactly what people mean when they use that expression.

  5. Your daughter in DARLING!
    And your party . . . so so sweet! I love the all decorations . . . especially that you didn't overwhelm your atmosphere with store bought FROZEN decor :0) Love the balloons hanging from the ceiling, your blue tablecloths, the cake!, the punch!!, the menu, and your daughters' works of art! So sweet!
    I always enjoy stopping by :0)
    Sending hugs,
    Suzanne

  8. Going to organize a frozen birthday party for my niece at one of good venues in San Francisco which is well known for its awesome views. Will gift her a frozen princess dress too. She loves these kinds of dresses.
