Frozen in summer? What's that all about? I don't mean literally frozen but Disney's "Frozen." I have already had one themed birthday this spring and about to do another "Frozen in Summer" birthday party extravaganza.
This movie has been quite a hit at my house - a modern day fairytale. It is a pleasant surprise, a departure from the princess and prince fairytale romances we have experienced in our childhoods. And I happen to love Disney, so planning the girls' birthday parties inspired me to reconnect with my inner child and my creativity. Emma's spring birthday party was a hit; Lana's will be in July so I will have to be even more creative.
Is there a Frozen-style party on your agenda? Elsa and Anna paraphernalia is not easy to find. Toys are just as scarce unless you are willing to pay top dollar. I had to do some research, and here's what I came up with:
Etsy is a huge help for DIY parties. Check out Frilly chili boutique's Elsa and Anna scrabble tile necklace at www.Frillychili.etsy.com. I didn't think to request the back of the letter tile to have Emma's initial, but it so happened to be an E - perfect!
Kiki's Kreations has cute silver style necklaces with charms and a "Let It Go" print. www.etsy.com/shop/KikisJewel
Amanda Jane Designs on Etsy are worth a look. She has several Disney necklace collections that would make really sweet gifts as well. Check out Disney's "Frozen" Inspired Let It Go Necklace.
If you have a "Frozen" themed birthday in your future, don't sweat it. Pinterest is a great source for inspiration. You can find all kinds of ideas for party gifts and games. I found some age-appropriate motor skill printables (Frozen inspired of course) for the preschoolers, which I have laminated to use for homeschooling. Games for all ages, food ideas and the images will spark your creations. I saw a great recipe for finger foods (cucumber and hummus rounds) and decided to label them "Kristoff's friends - the love doctors."
Happy planning and have a great summer!
