Zoe's Frozen Themed 6th Birthday Party
"What little girl doesn't want a Frozen themed birthday party right now? I can't think of one!! And Zoe was no exception. As her mom, I didn't complain since it meant she got to wear her fabulous Elsa costume from Chasing Fireflies for at least one more occasion. And what an occasion it was!!!
Event designer and florist, Greg Hall and Company, came up with an amazing winter wonderland concept and executed it flawlessly. There were beautiful blue linens with mirrors and crystal candle holders on the tables. And for the centerpieces there were large white branch trees in vases. And all of it was covered in snow! The chairs were covered in silver chair covers and fastened with dripping crystals.
Caterer, Southern Sophistication Designs, provided square plates to mimic ice cubes and topped each child's plate with a frozen chocolate covered heart underneath a glass dome.
Each child was also provided with a Frozen snowball blue drink in a milk bottle glass with a blue and white striped straw. The entrance the cake room was framed by huge white trees dripping in snowflakes and crystals with Olaf standing watch to welcome everyone. Balloons covered the floor for a particularly festive look and provided great entertainment for the children. The cake table was truly a dream come true! The backdrop was huge trees cut from styrofoam and framed by white branch trees with blue and white hydrangeas at the base.
The cake table was completely made of mirrors and covered in snow. Classic City Confections made a beautiful two tired blue ombre rosette cake topped with Frozen characters. It was even blue inside! And for favors, there were blue cake pops featuring all of the Frozen characters. Sitting around the Hardeman Sams House were various plushies of the Frozen characters. All of the catering was Frozen themed as well with little character signs for each item. There were stuffed mushrooms recommended by the trolls. There were melted Olaf yogurts. There were Elsa and Anna sandwiches and Elsa cheeseburgers with little cheese slices cut in the shape of snowflakes. And of course, there were frozen hearts which were chocolate covered strawberries.The gift table was a blue vintage vanity covered in beautiful glass details. And there were bags of marshmallows, pretzels, and chocolate chips that the children could make Olaf from. And to top it all off, a bouncy house to get rid of all of that energy!! A little tidbit of information about something I do differently at birthday parties for Zoe. All of my friends keep telling me that I need to write this down and share so that other parents can do the same thing. Zoe only opens one gift at the party (if any - many times it's after the party). And then she opens one gift a day until they are all gone. That way she isn't rushed to open all of her presents and she gets to enjoy each one. Plus she has something to look forward to for weeks and weeks after coming home from school because she gets to open a present. And this way, each gift gets enjoyed instead of forgotten about."
