Nancy and her little sister Florence are crazy into the Disney Movie Frozen and their big sister Lily was buying Nancy an Elza costume it seemed like the perfect idea for a theme.
Disney's Frozen is a huge hit, the highest grossing Disney film of all time. You would think that being the case all the merchandising would be ten a penny, yes? No! No cups, plates, napkins balloons table covers or anything available to buy in all of my usual haunts. I didn't venture into the Disney store and only had a week to get everything so didn't want to risk Amazon or online party stores, so we improvised.
I am a HUGE fan of Pinterest and always find inspiration for all my creative projects so naturally I turned to it first of all . I found some great ideas from various pinners like here and some great free printables here.
DOH and I spent last friday night making snowflakes from blue wrapping paper. I wanted them for my table display and was thrilled at how well they turned out. I still have them out in the dining room and when I put them away I may keep them for Christmas as they gave just the right level of blue frostiness.
Blue food items are really hard to come by here in the UK but I bought an excellent blue food colouring and blue "candy melts" in Lakeland . So was able to blue ice coconut cupcakes and dip marshmallows in blue candy and white sprinkles. We had lots of Olaf bits and pieces in the form of marshmallows and twiglets, matchmakers and chocolate raisins. His orange nose proved troublesome. I thought I was brilliant when I found some orange tic-tacs- until I opened them and discovered they were white- in a bloomin orange box!
I tried to get a blue juice to serve, but couldn't get one that wasn't very fizzy or caffeinated and as most of the kids attending were under 5 that wasn't suitable, so I had a brain wave. I bought lightly flavored water and added blue food colouring. I served the juice in glass bottles in an ice bucket and it looked fabulous.
I got another great idea from Pinterest to display the balloons by hanging them upside down from the ceiling. I thought they looked fantastic.
All the kids had a great time and dad and I enjoyed the afternoon too. one of Nancy's friend's parents said she had had the best day ever, what more could you ask for ?
