Frozen Birthday Party by Minted and Vintage

26th March 2015

My sweet girl turned 4! I bet you can’t guess what theme a Disney princess obsessed little girl choose for her very own party? You guessed it…Frozen!

I’ll have to admit, I wasn’t super excited partly because Frozen parties have been done, and done, over, and over again this entire year and I was feeling a bit defeated at trying to make it unique because I have seen so many beautiful ones! But I said what the heck this is MY girls party and it’s what HER little heart desires so I took it on as a challenge to add my own spin to it!

This time around there was a plethora of Frozen party supplies that I could use but I knew from the very start I didn’t want to plaster the Frozen sisters all over the party (especially because I wasn’t too fond of the darker colors!). I have gotten used to using very minimal character party supplies since my last 2 bashes for my girl were pretty much super vintage themes (Strawberry Shortcake and Sleeping Beauty) with no party supplies readily available, so I’ve learned how to made do without them, and I quite like it that way now. 

I started off choosing a color scheme: soft tones of blue, aqua, lavender, purple, snowy white, & touches of sparkly silver. Next, I contacted Paige of Paiges of Style for the invitation and other printables. Choosing the invitation also helped guide my vision (even though I really didn’t have one) she did such a good job at designing the prettiest Frozen inspired invitation using a plethora of snowflakes, so I ran with that!

I whipped out my trusty Cricut machine, found a snowflake cartridge on Ebay and started cutting away hundreds of snowflakes in assorted papers, styles, and sizes. I knew I wanted to use these as my main décor throughout the party. Although it was painstakingly tedious it just had to be done (what’s a party without that one craft that takes you a gazillion hours to make, right?) oh and might I add I also hand glittered almost half of them!

Next up was dreaming up my tables! Dessert table first of course. 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 The 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 came up with a genius idea of rimming parts of the cake and some shot glasses with a combination of white sanding sugar and snow sugar. I had never seen this before and I loved it! It really gave the desserts that snowy look I was going for! She made matching sugar cookies, verrines, cupcakes, French macarons, and even hard candy snowflake lollipops!

Sabrina of Simply Brigadeiro made the cutest little brigs in perfect sanding sugar colors of aqua, lavender, and white topped with the tiniest snowflake sprinkle. She provided me with adorable mini cake stands and domes to plate each little brigadeiro. She also made me some of her brigadeiro mousse cups that were so yummy as well.

Marie from Sweets Indeed made the cutest Frozen inspired candy kabobs with blue raspberry sour belts and embellished them with sugar snowflakes, they went perfectly with this theme!

Melanie from Melanie Rose Baking made some Olaf cake pops, they were just too cute (and the first items to get snatched up on the table). She also made some simple ones and embellished them with the candy gems and snowflakes made by The French Confection Co.

I used a variety of our Minted and Vintage dessert stands in shades of purple, aqua, blue and clear to display all of these yummy desserts.

For the guest tables, I set up banquet tables in my backyard. 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 my girls Viv and Pam of Love Anne Joy Events, who just recently purchased a long standing flower shop in Cerritos (Cerritos Florist)! They came up with the prettiest arrangements for my aqua mason jars! Oh they were so lovely! They used 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 princess table was draped in the most beautiful sequined aqua linen and white sequin table runner from The Candy Crush Shop. 

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 girls 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!). Brianna of Brianna Muniz Photography came to do a little photo sesh with her prior to her guests arriving.  I like doing this with my babe because it captures her excitement at the beginning of her party!

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! I had the perfect lavender chairs brought in from Circa Vintage Rentals ready for the Frozen sisters to sit on while entertaining Abby and her little guests.

I love being able to turn my sweet girls dream party into a reality, I especially love when I’m overwhelmed crafting something for her party and she comes up to me telling me how good of a job I’m doing. Her excitement and anticipation just reaffirms me why I go through my party planning madness.
