I have to admit I haven’t planned a “homemade” children’s party for a very long time as I preferred to go somewhere which organises it all for you, with activities, food and party bags all included.
This year however, I have found that I have to go back to basics for Eliza’s party as she is insistent on having a Frozen theme!
Last year we were invited to a Harry Potter Party organised by my good friend Joanne and had an amazing time, so I have roped her in to help me – well, what are friends for?
I have been working on my Frozen Party Pinterest board packed full of ideas for about 9 months now and am now busily trying to decide which ideas to take forward. We are definitely going to do pin the nose on Olaf, the “Do you wanna build a snowman” game and make our own reindeer antlers / princess crown.
Food wise I am going to do the basics like sausage rolls, sausages and crisps but I do like the princess crown sandwich idea and having Olaf noses (carrots) on the table. Eliza wanted a cake like Abbey’s (pictured above) but I have also gone for an Olaf inspired cake instead and cannot wait to see the finished article.
Joanne has a business making fabric party bags so she has been roped in to making some Olaf themed bags for the kids, so now I just need to find bits and bobs to fill them.
As the party has a Frozen theme, the contents of the bags will follow and I have found a really wide range of Frozen products in The Works, with invitations, books, bubbles, colouring sets and even masks.
My venue is our local community centre and I thought by arranging it all myself I would save money, however it is just as expensive as paying for someone to host it plus we have to set up and clear up too. I think this may be a false economy but you live and learn.
My last mission is to find a chocolate fountain, after all Anna and Elsa love chocolate!
