My kids anticipate the holidays almost as much for the new kids movies that are coming out as the food and presents! Over the summer I took my kids to the movies. During the previews, they had the cutest digital short from Pixar. It was about a slightly funny looking, but adorable snowman. A few weeks later I learned that he was going to be in Disney’s latest movie. As soon as I heard that, the party wheels started turning! 🙂 Frozen birthday party decorations were hard to come by creating these Frozen party ideas considering the movie had not come put yet, so I had to get extra creative!

I wanted this Frozen party to have an icy, snowy feel, hence the blues and white color scheme, then I added pops of orange for some fun contrast since it pairs so well with blue.
FROZEN BIRTHDAY PARTY DECORATIONS IDEAS
Disney’s Frozen movie has a beautiful glittered title, so I wanted to create a sign for the party that mimicked that look. I found these wood letters at the craft store and used my favorite glitter to turn them into the Frozen sign. Notice how I used a different font for the “O” in Frozen. This made the sign look more authentic because it is similar to the title of the movie. This is one of the easiest Frozen birthday party decorations ever! Simply spread white glue (this is my favorite for crafting) on your wood letters…do one at a time, and then sprinkle with the glitter while they are wet. Let dry and you are all set. They will lose quite a bit of glitter, so if you want to help the glitter stay in place you can spray with this adhesive after they are dry to help hold it in place…almost like a hairspray. 😉
Simple white paper chains gave the feeling of ice and snow overhead. They make perfect Frozen birthday party decorations and are super budget friendly. They are a great way to get the kids involved in making some of the Frozen birthday party decorations.
Baby’s breath is a great filler and works well as a centerpiece for the Frozen party theme. I like that it looks like snow and feels light and fluffy. Other Frozen birthday party decorations included white felt snowflake placemats, carrot place card holders, and fun Frozen birthday party favors that were little boxes full of marshmallows with a glittered snowflake ornament left over from Christmas on top.
FROZEN BIRTHDAY PARTY FOOD IDEAS
I always like my party food and party table to be themed to match the birthday party theme as much as possible. The little snowman donut treats are super easy to make and looked so cute on a bed of icy blue candies. I have a stash of these same candies in all kinds of colors because they always make a great pop of color to set your party desserts on. You can find a tutorial for the snowman donuts here.
The premise of the digital short for Frozen, was a snowman, Olaf, who sneezes and come to pieces. It was so cute, I had the crazy idea of creating snowman pieces as both a favor and activity for the kids. They could play with the snowman parts and create silly snowmen, and then take them home and eat them!
Fortunately, even though there were no Frozen birthday party decorations or Frozen party food ideas out on the market yet, I had a picture of Olaf that I found online from the preview. I contacted one of my favorite cookie ladies…the AMAZING Elizabeth of www.lizybbakes.com , showed here the picture and told her my crazy idea and she was on board! Seriously, she is oozing talent!
When I saw these perfectly constructed Olaf pieces, I was amazed! The kids had a blast playing with them even after the shoot was over…they didn’t want to eat them!
For a few healthier Frozen birthday party food ideas, pretzels, raisins and carrots make good “snowman themed” food options. They have the feel of snowman parts…noses, eyes and arms.
I have a serious stash of these square plastic party bottles and for good reason. I love turning them into some sort of fun themed party drink every chance I get. These Frozen birthday party decorations were SO easy to make.
If you know me, then you know I can’t resist coming up with outfits to match my parties! My little Ashley LOVES her hair in a donut bun, so I thought adding a headband and some snowman parts to her bun would be too funny! 🙂
I found this funny showman hat that was a Christmas ornament that I was able to hot glue to a headband. I added a couple of googly eyes to bobby pin and tied another orange felt scarf around the bun. I even stuck a carrot in the center of her bun. 😉
I used my local grocery store bakery and had them make me a Frozen themed birthday cake. I have worked with them for years and they were excited to take on the challenge of creating Olaf. I showed them a picture of him too and let them take creative license with it. I think they did a cute job and it was WAY less expensive than a custom cake from a specialty shop.
I added the phrase “build a snowman.” One of the more popular songs from the movie is “Do you want to build a Snowman,” and I thought it would be the perfect sentiment to go with our Snowman parts cookies.
I was able to make the frozen wood letters stand by adding small brackets to the back of each letter with some hot glue.
I hope that you are feeling inspired by these Frozen birthday party decorations! So much of this party was DIY and I love that it is so easy and so budget friendly to create so many of these Frozen birthday party decorations.
