My big girl is turning four, and every mom of girls knows what that means: FROZEN FEVER!!! If you have "Let It Go" down by heart, allocate fifteen minutes of every morning to french braiding your daughter's hair, or can no longer remember the original version of the phrase "We finish each other's sandwiches", this party post is for you!
I have to say, my creative little heart sunk a bit when Leah told me she wanted a Frozen birthday party. I mean, where's the fun in buying a bunch of licensed paper plates and decorations and throwing them on a table? (No offense to those who go that route--this is a testament to my neurotic need for creative outlet, not a slam to those who lack those neuroses. Sometimes I wish I could be more like you!) Anyway, I had to find a way to put my own spin on this Frozen party, lest I lose my mind.
I started with the concept of Anna and Elsa silhouettes, then built everything from there. Add a little sparkle, keep the color palette chic, mix and match decor ideas, and viola! Frozen 2.0!
A good rule of thumb for me when planning parties is not to go overboard with one particular element in the theme. For example, I plan to have a few things at this party that actually have Frozen characters on them, but instead of having Elsa plates, napkins, cups, balloons, tablecloth, etc., I'll be mixing in flat colors, snowflake prints, and glitter. I love how chic the outcome is when using this restrained approach (see my mood board to the right!).
On to the invitations! I spent several hours perfecting these, guys, so I hope you love them as much as I do! The silhouette, the glittery snowflakes--seriously, I'm in love!
Feel free to download, add text, and print as many copies as you need, and if someone marvels at the invite, send them my way :).
Stay tuned for photos of the party! This will be a fun one--I can't wait to share!
