Frozen Party Ideas – Icy Decorations, Pretty Invitations and Yummy Favours

For my daughter’s fifth birthday we held a Frozen themed garden party for a few friends and family. I spent many hours scouring Pinterest for the best Frozen party ideas and there are a lot to choose from!

I handmade most of the party decorations and might have gone a teensy bit crazy, but you’re only 5 once right?

Frozen Invitations

I wanted to give a feel for the Frozen colours without using the characters. Consequently, to set the theme, I designed these frosty invitations and added a bit of subtle sparkle on the snowflakes after printing. Canva is a great place to design your own free invitations and you’ll find lots of templates to choose from.

Frozen Party Favours

I adore the handmade touch and made these cute foam Elsa crowns for each of the guests. I found a free crown template on My Sister’s Suitcase blog and added gems and glitter.

The Olaf favour thank you tags matched the invitations in design. The bags contained sweets to build your own snowman. Each bag contained; large and small marshmallows, raisins, orange jelly bean noses and chocolate matchsticks.

Frozen Party Decorations

I transformed the party venue into a beautiful Frozen wonderland! There were touches of handmade icicles, meters of bunting, balloons and snowflakes throughout.  This pom pom bunting is so cute and can be used for all sorts of different themes. If you’d like to make your own pom poms, you can follow my tutorial here.

I was also really pleased with how the foam icicles turned out. Furthermore, they were easy and cost-effective to make and looked great!

Finally, our playhouse was crying out to be turned into Wandering Oaken’s Trading Post and the conservatory looked perfect with meters of handmade blue and sparkly silver garlands, balloons and a homemade castle. (Which we decorated as one of the activities).

‘Do you wanna build a snowman?’ My daughter (Izzy) certainly did!  So for her 5th birthday party, we put on a Frozen extravaganza for 14 of her friends! Planning the Frozen party games was such fun, and of course, it was even more fun running them!

Castle Decorating

The party kicked off with a ‘Decorate Elsa’s castle’ activity.  We did a spot of reusing and recycling to make the castle and Mr Made By Me (hubby Martin) did a grand job!  I’ve found a great supplier for super glamorous cardboard castles for any future Made By Me Craft Parties.  This activity was more popular than I had imagined and the girls kept going back to add a few more jewels and embellishments throughout the party.

Frozen Party Games: Do You Wanna Build A Snowman?

Next up was ‘Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?’ We split the girls into teams and asked 4 unsuspecting parents to be our victims (er … I mean, Olafs).  Each team had a roll of toilet paper, 3 buttons, a carrot nose and a scarf and they had to dress up their adult as Olaf.  Cue lots of laughter and fun!

‘Making It Snow’ Balloon Popping Game

I thought it would be amazing if we could make it snow for the party. So I took an idea I’d seen on Pinterest and changed it up to suit our Frozen needs.  We filled balloons with some Christmas chocolate snowballs, silver sequins, some tiny cotton balls and also a party guest’s name on a piece of paper (so we knew whose turn it was next to pop).  We hung the balloons from our conservatory roof and each girl got to pop a balloon.  It was a bit like pass the parcel with a bang!

The party was in September on one of those unexpectedly hot days and my cunning plan went a bit melty! I hadn’t factored in the hot conservatory and the chocolate … there were a few chocolate smears as a result.  Oops!

It’s also worth noting, that it’s a good idea to check with parents about whether their children are OK with loud balloon popping noises! There were a few children who covered their ears.

Pin The Nose On Olaf

We finished up the party with some quieter games of ‘Pin the Nose on Olaf ‘and ‘Frozen musical statues’.
