A DIY Frozen Themed Birthday Party !

       
 Frozen Themed Birthday Party
           Dear Friends , the 2nd half of May each year is super busy for me as my daughter celebrates her birthday on May 30th. In India we have a lot of religious festivals with elaborate rituals and customs but in our home we give  a miss to most of these festivals and give the maximum importance to celebrating our little girl's [ no more little!] birthday!
DIY Frozen Themed Birthday
             In January, I had shared some Foam baskets I had made in advance for her Birthday and many of you had commented I was so smart to plan so much in advance! Well May arrives and I am not feeling very smart as the little princess claims she wants a " Frozen" theme party . In usual "stressed out" - "no time for it" - Mom mode I panicked but thinking back it was one of the most enjoyable themes to DIY for a birthday party!
         The net abounds in Frozen theme party ideas and the best thing was the color scheme of blue and white and lots of snowflakes. My daughter is currently in love with the color blue [ she did go through and orange phase some years back!] and who doesn't love snowflakes!!
          Sharing lots of pics and tips so that any mom/ grandma/ dad/ aunt out there with a birthday girl who demands a Frozen party can take courage...we did it and so can you!
1. Invitation Cards
The first thing we made were the Invitation cards.
Frozen Invitation Cards
They were super simple this year compared to our  Scroll Shaped Card for our Egyptian Party last year]
Frozen Invitation Cards
           We started with white card stock, embossed it using a Sizzix folder , stamped snowflakes[ Itsy Bitsy foam stamp] , randomly sponged on blue ink and topped it off with punched glitter foam stars ! I  am especially proud of them as they were designed and made by the birthday girl herself!
Tip : Keeping things random as in the random stamping and sponging made these cards super quick & easy  to make .A bit of glitter  [ like in our glitter foam star] always adds a bit of  glamour!
2. Easy Snowflakes
Paper Snowflakes

          We used this tutorial of  Paper snowflakes/ stars I made long back when my daughter was younger. This time I am proud to say the birthday girl could make a snowflake completely on her own! We used regular thin chart paper to make huge snowflakes  and hung them all over the house!
Paper Snowflakes
Tip : this is one decoration you can afford to make some  errors..you dont have to cut perfect straight lines or even cut lines at equal distances..your final snowflakes will still turn out cool! If  you dont obsess about perfection these are quicker to make!

3.Frozen theme Castle
I really wanted to make a huge 3 D cardboard castle but time was a big crunch so I had cook up a way to give my little girl her theme castle...!
Frozen theme Castle
           We altered the pink and purple toy castle you can see as a prop in our Tangled theme birthday party . The toy had faded over the years so we actually gave it a face lift ! I spray painted it white first and handed it over to my daughter to paint blue wherever she wanted!

Tip : When in a time crunch use props you may already be having in your home!

4.Icicle - Snowflake Tree
Snowflake Tree
           Okay this one just happened! I had all these spoons [ from my daughter's Pediasure days!] dumped on my table as I was sorting through spoons for the party .Distractedly  stacked them while I was thinking of the party menu and lo I had created an Icicle tree!
Spoon Craft
Well a sorry looking icicle tree [yeah I invented that word!] till you dress it up with glittery snowflakes [ made using a sizzix die and glitter foam]
Glitter Foam Snowflakes
Tip : You can make decorations by recycling the craziest of things!
5. Happy Birthday Accordion

Accordion Happy Birthday Banner
I am still obsessed with Karen Burniston' s Pop Up Accordion die  [earlier projects here : Pop Up Dangler Card, Pop Up Accordion Card] and used to it make a glittery Happy Birthday in a Pop Up - Accordion style

Accordion Happy Birthday Banner
            All the silver and blue glittery elements were die cut from glitter foam . Added a layered snowflake in the centre of the accordion for the Frozen theme!
Tip : If you dont have time to make a big Birthday Banner , a simple Accordion style [even without the pop up element] Happy Birthday is an easy yet glamorous looking birthday decoration to make!
6.Frozen themed Birthday Card
Pop Up Birthday Card
Now this was a super simple highly un-embellished card but you know what...the birthday girl loved it!!
Pop Up Birthday Card
           And no I didnt even print out the images of the characters from the movie [ Murphy's Law of Printing: Home Printer wont work when its  really needed to work]! Like most crafters I hoard a lot of stuff and the images were cut out from the packaging of the Frozen character toys I got my daughter!
Pop Up Birthday Card 

The delicate "Happy Birthday" and cute snowflake were die -cut from glitter foam [Yeah you know I love glitter foam!]
7.Blue Balloons !!!
Frozen Decor
            As I already told you one of the easiest things about the Frozen theme was the color scheme. It was so easy to give an instant Frozen theme look by simply decorating with lots of blue and white balloons!
Time Saver Tip : Using double sided foam tape to stick balloons to wooden/metal/plastic surfaces is much quicker than tying strings on them and hanging them! But do avoid foam tape on your walls as  it can peel off your wall paint when removing!
8. Olaf the Snowman 
Olaf the snowman 
         If you have seen the movie  I bet one of your favorite characters is Olaf the snowman! Many of you know my daughter loves to draw and paint .Well she drew and painted 2 huge Olafs and we propped them on card board supports to complete our Frozen theme Decor!

  20. After seeing your accordion card in a challenge, I bought it and it should arrive today. I just love what you did for the Frozen Party and will use some of your ideas. Don't know where you find the time from your career, family and then make these beautiful projects and cards.

  21. What a wonderful party! Everything is just magical. I love your snowflake tree and how you recycled plastic spoons for it. That embossing folder is spectacular. What a great way to make fast and fantastic invitation cards. I love that you and Prisha did the castle redo as a joint project and Prisha's Olafs are amazing. What a talented girl, so much like her talented mother.
    Hugs & smiles to you both,
    Teresa

  24. AWE!! How fun for your "little" one to have such a beautifully decorated party! :) Frozen must be a big deal everywhere and not just the U.S. For the last year or so that's all I've seen is the "Frozen" theme and theme song for the movie! LOL!! I don't have any girls and don't have any little children...I supposed when I'm a grandma, I'll be able to enjoy something! LOL!!

    You've done a lot of work and such special designs with the Frozen theme! So glad she is able to help you and develop her artistic talents with her mom! :) I'm sure she is thrilled with it and a Happy Birthday to her!! Thanks for sharing! ;) HUGS

  30. What a beautifully themed party you did create. And I can just imagine the fun that your lovely daughter had in helping to create all the innovative & creative decorations. To my mind, that would be just as much fun for both of you, as the final resulting party. Am sure that all her guests enjoyed the Frozen party and my goodness, your daughter is such an exquisitely beautiful young lady. She's blessed to have such a creative Mom who could help her make her dream party become a reality. Thanks for sharing all the fun with us. Hugs

  45. So cute themed birthday party! I loved seeing the kiddos having fun in this brilliant party. It was a perfect idea to celebrate your child’s birthday. I have also been finding the local event venues in NYC for my son’s 9th birthday party. He has demanded to have superhero party.
