Frozen Birthday party + free Frozen printable

Monday, December 1, 2014

I realized last week that I never shared the details of our Frozen Party! So I thought to kick of the Holidays it would be perfect! You can purchase our Frozen printables here in our shop! I wanted to create a frozen castle feel, so I used large plexiglass "ice cube" and icicles.

First, for the decorations I hung sliver snowflake ornaments and created paper snowflakes out of paper fans (I bought these here) In blue and white with sizes ranging from 6"-19"
To make them look more like snowflakes I cut and trimmed the fans when they were folded together to give them a unique, one of a kind snowflake look. I LOVE how they turned out! It added so much to the party table! 
Here is the silhouette of the large ones I create. Just make sure not to cut in the cardboard strip, as it needs that area to stay together, plus it's really hard to cut throughout that part!
Now for the fun Frozen birthday treats I created

Now for the fun Frozen birthday treats I created

Jello and whip cream parfaits 

"Ice Cubes" made with blue & turquoise M&M's in clear boxes. The kids LOVED these! The ice blocks can be made ahead of time too, so it's an easy dessert to create.
Homemade Snowflake suckers in 2 flavors in light blue and turquoise
I also had gum balls and Cookies and Cream Kisses for kids to nibble on. The little ones loved the kisses, as they were easy to grab and they liked taking them 1 by 1.
Snow mountain cake with marshmallow frosting with Frozen figures. It's a simple cake that the kids can help you decorate!
Blue Raspberry cotton candy for Elsa's magical powers to create ice topped with our printable favor toppers available here
Cupcakes with buttercream frosting topped with sprinkles and our printable cupcake toppers 
Last, but not least Kristoph's Family Troll Rock Candy! It was my favorite treat on the whole table, probably because it's my favorite part of the movie too when Olaf says, "Hi Sven's family! Nice to meet you. He's crazy.... why aren't you running!" Because of that I am offering this tag free! You can get your Free frozen printable tag here. The Troll candy rocks are available here for you to make your own Family Troll Rock favor.    
For a little activity I put together these Snowman kits for each of the kids to make their own Olaf! They had a blast with this and it was so fun to see the "snowmen" them made for marshmallow.
In each How to build a snowman kit is:
1 Jumbo marshmallow
2 Regular marshmallows
2 mini marshmallows
2 pretzel sticks
1 orange gum drop (for the nose)
A handful of mini mint black candies for the eyes, smile and buttons
(If you are interested in these canoes email me and I can get you a price on them! They are really good too!)
For the beverages we had "Melted snow" water bottles and blue soda
To make the soda a little more special I added 2 straws in each bottle- a blue stripe and a blue polka dot paper straw! 

Eden really took on the role of Elsa spraying her magical powers all day long..... she even took some of the small snowflakes I made and held it in her hand and tossed them as she splayed her hand out!
The cutest part was when little sister started copying her hand gestures, wishing she had a Elsa dress too!

Glittery Gold Spooktacular Halloween party- great party ideas and treats

Sunday, October 5, 2014

 Our new Halloween Collection- Glittery Gold Spooktacular party printables  is now available in our shop! It is filled with ghastly ghouls and shimmering sparkles. With the color gold beings so hot right now I just knew I had to incorporate it into our new collection to give Halloween a little sophisticated glitz!
To add a little sparkle of gold I created a easy DIY backdrop. I knew this would make a huge statement and give that glitz factor I was looking for while still looking like Halloween. I started with just black butcher paper (taping two widths together). I painted the large polka dots first, then added the small circles in-between. After the paint dried I added gold glitter with just rubber cement. (I only added glitter to the large polka dots)
 I used Folk Art Metallic craft paint and it turned out PERFCT! It truly is metallic and gives off the coolest gold effect. I then added gold glitter to the large poster on the bat & pumpkin.

To drink we had orange soda in cute glass bottles.

Halloween party favors filled with a classic Halloween treat... candy corn

We had boxes and bags for guest to take home Halloween treats
 A tray filled with all different kinds of cookies to snack on at the party and to take home in our favor boxes and bags. We make sugar cookies in Boo, Eek & RIP, Cookie Butter cookies (recipe coming soon..... and these are DELICIOUS!!!) and chocolate covered Oreos.
 My favorite detail is the gold star edible confetti on the black pipped trim! Love is in the details- between each shell I placed a gold chicklet
 Paper cones were filled with Halloween candy: Reeces, Twix, Kit Kats, Caramel Apple Milkyways, Snickers.... to name a few and then topped with a ghost peep.
Our thank you tags were attached to sugar cookie saying that coordinated with the 2 different thank you tag sayings. Boo Hoo- it's time to go and RIP- Remember the ghoul times. these thank you tags are my favorite printable item in our collection! they just crack me up!

There are 4 additional signs that are included in our Gold Spooktacular Halloween printable collection and here is one of them. It's pinned to a frame made entirely out of cork board- coming soon to our shop! You can paint the cork board or bling it out!
