Apart from the birthday girl, this Frozen Birthday Party is all about the treats and DIY decor that took guests straight into a Frozen fairytale. The dessert spread (put together by 4 different bakers!) had every sugary and sparkly confection you could imagine from candy kabobs to Olaf cake pops! Yes, the witty snowman made his way into Abby’s fourth birthday party! Aracely from Minted and Vintage put her heart and soul (and DIY savvy!) into making her little girl’s Disney dreams come true. Here’s how..
I started off by choosing a color scheme of soft tones of blue, aqua, lavender, purple, snowy white, & touches of sparkly silver. Next, I used my Cribut machine to cut out tons of pretty snowflakes! I used these as my main décor element throughout the party.
For the dessert table, I covered a 6ft x 4ft piece of cardboard with the prettiest tiny glitter snowflake fabric I found at Joann’s, glued on a bunch of the cardstock snowflakes in a pattern and voila, backdrop done. Letters I placed on the backdrop are chipboard letters I found at Michaels that I painted and Modge Podged with white chunky glitter. Table was set with a gorgeous white sequin tablecloth from Candy Crush Shop and I strung a tissue paper tassel garland made by my girls over at Paper Fox LA. Jess and Lauren also made me some fun balloon tassels and confetti to fill up a couple 3ft balloons I ordered from Shop Sweet Lulu, super cute and the kids loved to play and take pictures with them!
For the desserts I reached out to some of the sweetest girls in the biz. Mallory from The French Confection Co. sketched up a beautiful cake design with all the elements I wanted, gems, snowflakes, and snow! She made matching sugar cookies, verrines, cupcakes, French macarons, and even hard candy snowflake lollipops! Sabrina of Simply Brigadeiro made brigadeiro mousse cups and the cutest little brigs in perfect sanding sugar colors of aqua, lavender, and white, topped with the tiniest snowflake sprinkle.
For the guest tables, I set up banquet tables in my backyard and threw on lavender linens with some aqua runners. I scattered some paper snowflakes down the center and used a trio of vintage milk glass vases in the center with two aqua mason jar arrangements at each side. I glittered the bottoms of the jars to create a dipped in snow look, hot glued some snowflake buttons and sent them on over to Cerritos Florist! They came up with the prettiest arrangements using lavender roses, white and blue hydrangeas, lavender stock, white and purple statice and some dusty miller. The jars were tied with a cute Olaf ribbon I found at Walmart. They also made me a larger arrangement for the princess table, we sat a cute little Olaf plush in the center.
The chocolate fountain table was inspired by the line “I wanna stuff some chocolate in my face” in the movie, hence the “stuff yo face” garland I handmade and strung from two vintage window paned doors from This and That Vintage Rentals. I gave these vintage doors a snowy look by spraying on some faux snow on each pane.
My girl’s long anticipated day came and it started off by getting her all dolled up in her Elsa dress and light up shoes complete with a (non-matching lol) blonde braid that I embellished with snowflakes (she was SO excited to wear a hair color that is not her own!). Abby had two very special guests arrive, the beautiful Frozen sisters, Queen Elsa and Princess Anna. She was in heaven singing alongside with them, oh just seeing my sweet girl sing her little heart out completely melted mine!
