Must we say more? Any Frozen themed birthday starts with the outfit. If your child is asking for a Frozen Birthday Party, no doubt they own an outfit already…it is probably one of those staple clothing items that you need to peel off them to wash. I love seeing all the little Elsa and Anna’s at the shops in their dresses and gumboots even over winter.
If they don’t have an outfit you could surprise them with one for their Birthday….that truly would make their day! David Jones and other department stores have a good range of costumes and Frozen clothing. You make even like to ask your little guests to dress up as their favourite Frozen character.
Colour Scheme and Decorations
Pale Blue/turquoise, rich purples/mauve, white, glitter with splash of orange (olaf) are the key to pulling of this Frozen themed party together. I love the mix of the blues/mauves colour palettes put together.
The pinterest is just bursting with party ideas and inspiration and the range of beautiful products available is endless.
Whether you opt for some DIY decorations in the Frozen colour schemes or store bought Disney decorations, you will have a lot of fun creating a Winter Wonderland.
It is great to sere so many families utilising their Buy Nothing Groups, borrowing decorations from friends or using items that they already have (eg: Snowflake Christmas Decorations). Fabric bunting is also a great alternative to balloons. Not only does it look great, it can be reused and better for the environment.
Lots of the discount stores have party ware, tulle, balloons, paper flowers and pom poms in the ice blue colour scheme which can be dressed up with glitter. Or get creative with the kids and make some DIY snowflakes, or a backdrop with paint and snowflake cookie cutters.
Performers and Party Entertainment
Make your child’s party even more spectacular by hiring an Elsa, Anna, Sven or Olaf performer. Let these highly regarded children’s entertainers pop in for a visit to sing a song or two, play some games with the kids, and make the birthday child and their friends feel fabulous on their special day. They also make for some most amazing photo opportunities.
One of our favourite performers we like to use is Glass Slipper Entertainment. They make sure there is plenty of fun, magic and musical entertainment, ensuring memories that will last a lifetime! They provide professional, musically trained characters in high quality costumes, making each child believe that they have been in the presence of the Ice Queen, Ice Princess and Snowlaf. They also offer face painting!
Frozen Themed Disco Parties
Do your children love belting out all their favourite Frozen songs? Keep the kids busy and engaged with a Frozen Themed Disco Party. Frozen songs are so popular that our friends over at Bop till you Drop have a party specifically designed for their little Frozen fans. Parties include set up of PA System and 3 microphones plus Elsa, who will run the disco entertainment for the kids with songs from the movie, graceful dance moves and fun party games tailored around Frozen.
