Initially, Ella was just going to have a small party because we were also doing an American Girl store trip and since we live in Middleofnowhere, USA that involves a bit of travel and expense.
However, once we OF COURSE landed on the Frozen theme - small became a relative term.
Fortunately, she has a mama that likes diy and so it didn't take much *financially* to make the Frozen Fantasy party to take shape.
I worked for a good two months on things, here and there between etsy orders and pattern testing and I had a friend whose daughter also had a Frozen party who has a cricut so I lucked out on her paper crafts.
I took inspiration from various Pinterest pins and some of mine and Ella's own creative ideas and love for the movie, and her party was born!
I had to make something with sparkle sticks! so we did olaf bottoms dipped in blue chocoate and sparkly sprinkles. Not just any candy stick will do for a Frozen party! Grab a set here
and dip. I found little diamonds for table
decor at Michaels in the floral section they
added some amazing sparkle.
In the upper left background are blue
chocolate covered pretzel sticks with sparkly sugar
Melted Snow men drinks. Donut holes in coffee
bottles filled with milk with a cute scarf.
I made an icecream cake with hardtack blue spears like Elsa's castle with characters on top. Our my disney princess Elsa and Anna sat beside it. They're very pretty dolls 18" tall for $50 at Target. Your best bet now is probably online since everything frozen flies off the shelves!

Ella wanted a lit canvas with Let it go on it surrounded by snowflakes. Available here . Its hanging in her room now. Along with her name portion of her birthday banner.
I have to say, she got the Anna/Elsa castle as a gift mainly because i wanted to use it as decoration :) In the background is Elsa's ice punch, blue Hawaiian punch, sprite and ice cream snow balls. I painted snow mounds on the punch cups.
Last minute we decided to do bracelets as party favors. They turned out so pretty. I did more Elsa's because the girls all seem to like her better, but I think the Anna colors are prettiest. Grab some here. I also had goody bags that said "do you wanna build a snowman" available in the printable party kit. The kit contained mini marshmallows for bodies, chocolate chips for eyes and buttons and pretzel sticks for arms.
she knows how to keep her cool in front of royalty.
let her out of her sight!!1
Layla wouldn't leave her alone. Dressed as Anna she had lots of questions for Elsa. She really wanted to know why she kept striking her sister with ice and how she felt about it.
Ella put her cape and Anna hat on over her Anna costume for some Frozen sister pictures
They look like twins ;)
icy manicures. While I did Elsa and Anna
styled hair and make up.
Guess who got chosen more for makeover style
Anna or Elsa....
Layla had more serious movie points to discuss
with Elsa. This was after she made her eat with her.
Layla went and reserved a seat for Elsa and then turned around
and stared impatiently waiting for her to make her way to her.
Layla waits for no one. Not even Disney Royalty.
Pretty paper chains and snowflakes hanging from the
ceiling gave the room a Frozen palace feel.

for the "isn't it crazy we finish
each others sandwiches " line. I even
found a photo to use as the food card.
Elsa dress available now. Unfortunately I didn't have a pattern or much of an idea for one before Ella's party but this one worked out great! Layla who was the only one not to have an Elsa yet got the benefit of the first real Elsa costume and she wont take it off. Its much more screen accurate than the ones Disney store is selling.
I'm also doing birthday parties now to raise money for the adoption. I have packages that range from princess makeovers up to party entertainment and full theming and decorating. Since I have an abundance of Frozen party items this theme is currently going for less than others! contact me for info.
