Eliza’s 4th Birthday – A Princess Party

Dorset Dreamers

I have been planning Eliza’s birthday for what feels like months!

Like most girls her age she is obsessed with Disney Princesses, especially the movie Frozen and asked for her very own Frozen party.

Thankfully I knew exactly wear to start as I had been to Princess Ball at the end of last year where the Princesses were not only realistic but friendly and patient with the children.  I booked Dorset Dreamers for their platinum Princess Party Frozen package which gave me a 1.5 hour fully hosted party with the Ice Queen and Snow Princess (Elsa and Anna to us).

I also booked my local community centre, which was helpfully decorated in an ice blue colour, roped in my brother-in-law for use of his disco hire service and ordered fabric party bags from my friend Joanne.  It was then just a waiting game until the week of the party.

I spotted someone selling Frozen inspired decorations on Facebook the week before Eliza’s party for just £10 – she had thrown a Frozen party for her daughter and didn’t want to throw the decorations away.  I couldn’t believe how many decorations were in the bag and it was a real bargain that really made the barren room feel special.

Frozen Party

I named and packed the party bags the evening before the party.  The contents included Frozen stickers, rings, a Frozen mask, an Olaf Swizzles whistle lolly and a Frozen chocolate bar.

Food wise I bought lots of party food from Iceland and cooked it that morning, along with sandwiches – in snowman and snowflake shapes and Nanny made some fairy and chocolate rice krispy cakes.  Once we had set up we were ready to go.

The Dorset Dreamers team arrived 20 minutes before the party started.  We hid the Princesses in a large storage cupboard (sorry ladies) so we didn’t spoil the surprise as the children arrived. Their host set up the screen for the photos and the snow machine and then we were ready to go.

The children arrived to the party dressed in all their finery and were greeted by the DJ playing lots of bouncing tunes and they were all dancing and enjoying themselves unaware of what was about to happen…………..cue Let it Go starting to play……….

The Ice Queen and Snow Princess walked in singing along to Let it Go, encouraging the children to sing along.  The kids went wild when the snow machine came on and then something even more magical happened – the Queen’s dress transformed from the Coronation dress she arrived in, into her Ice dress.

Introductions now done, it was time for the party games to begin.  The Dorset Dreamers team organised everything, leaving me to take photos and take care of Sebastian who was feeling poorly.  Games included;

    • Pass the Parcel
    • Musical Trolls (Bumps)
    • Musical Stepping Stones
    • Parachute Games
    • Musical Frozen Statues

The Ice Queen and Snow Princess joined in with all the games and helped anyone who was struggling.  They were also happy to oblige with another sing-a-long and that all important snow, which was also used during the parachute games.

The games were paused for a very important event – the Coronation of the birthday girl with a crowning ceremony and gift of a rhinestone tiara.  Everyone then got to pose for photographs with the castle backdrop and receive their own Prince and Princess certificates, whilst Eliza had a costume change, before one more game and then food.

The Ice Queen and Snow Princess left whilst the kids were having their food, which they devoured as they were hungry from all the dancing and game playing they had done.

We finished off we a resounding “Happy Birthday’ song as Abbey presented Eliza with her Olaf cake which was made by my friend Karen from Affectionatelyiced.co.uk.

All the children headed home full of excitement about their morning of fun.  It was so good Isaac has demanded the same type of party, only with there male characters.  He can’t decide between Spiderman or a Jedi!!!
