Looking for ideas on how to throw the ultimate Frozen Birthday Party? You are going to want to pull out all of your silver, blue, and snowflake Christmas decorations for this one because we are going “all out for Elsa!” This party is packed with ideas you can create in minutes but if you are a DIYer like me you are going to love some of these unique Frozen themed party details that really bring the whole thing together.
Frozen Birthday Party Ideas
Last year we celebrated my daughter’s 2nd birthday with a “Sound of Music” themed party. I spent months and months working on every little detail and that night as I tucked my little “Megan von Trapp” in I was already thinking about the theme for her 3rd birthday. Any plans I had started to make went up in flames after we saw “Frozen”. Once I saw the look on my daughter’s face I knew we were headed in a very “frozen” direction.
Immediately after the movie we marched right to the Disney Store and quickly purchased an Elsa dress, light up shoes, jewelry, a couple dolls, some cups, t-shirts, and a book. Somehow we managed to get all of this out of the store undetected and hid it all at my mom’s house until Christmas. The dress is pretty gorgeous.

Early on I knew the party was going to be Elsa-centric so finding snowflakes and icicles and wintery type things was pretty easy in November and December. If you are reading this and Christmas decorations are still in the stores I suggest you stock up now. You might even find a bunch of stuff on sale.

Frozen Birthday Party DIYs
I DIYed a lot of elements for this Frozen Birthday Party. Vinyl silhouettes of Elsa were used to decorate plain silver paper cups.
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut snowflakes out of glitter cardstock for the straws.
A snowflake craft punch was used to give napkins a little personality.
I had some really sparkly wrapping paper that I wanted to incorporate so I wrapped a glass vase with it and stuck these glittery leaves in it. Finished off the look with sparkly turquoise tulle and a snowflake.

The theme was “Queen of 3” so all of the Frozen party supplies I designed carried out that theme.
Online Labels weatherproof water bottle labels are my favorite. Our “Arendelle Spring Water” labels did not bleed ink or come off in a bucket filled with ice cubes.

I used my Martha Stewart snowflake punch on these napkins as well and completed the look with snowflake rings as napkin rings.

The food! Always such an important part of any event. The party was later in the day so I served a bunch of finger foods and snacks. I know Olaf Noses are popular for Frozen parties but we call them Sven Snacks!
The Original Greek Yogurt Melted Olaf
Mini Fruit Cups
We created mini Frost Berry cups with a poof of blue cotton candy on the top. The cotton candy started to melt pretty quickly but the kids thought they were really fun.

Chocolate Covered Pretzels
“Elsa’s Snow Flurry Wands” are chocolate dipped pretzel sticks with edible luster dust and crushed rock candy. I set them in a small vase filled with diamond confetti from Koyal Wholesale because, well, I love diamonds, and they add just a bit more bling to the table.
Do you see Elsa’s gloves there? That was my little girl’s idea actually. She said we couldn’t forget Elsa’s gloves so I made sure to include them in the decor. We were going to play a game, “Find Elsa’s Glove” but to be honest, we ran out of time!
Chocolate Covered Rice Krispy Treats
May of Simply aMAYzing Sweets created chocolate covered OREOs and Rice Krispy Treats. These were absolutely perfect!! I loved the “cracked ice” and the snowflakes were beautifully done.

Arlene of She Wears the Crown really outdid herself this time! It’s hard to tell exactly from the photos but these were so sparkly and glittery and of course tasted delicious! Arlene is so creative and talented I knew that I would love whatever she came up with.

Frozen Elsa Doll Birthday Cake
I am not an expert baker by any means but I do enjoy doing it for my kids. This cake design almost didn’t happen because I could not find the doll anywhere. I was kind of panicking to be honest. When the birthday girl says the only cake she wants is an Elsa doll you’ve got to make it happen. My mom and brother searched every toy store and found the very last Elsa doll. Phew!
My friend, Jen, of Oh For Cake’s Sake created these sparkly fondant snowflakes for the cake which was my daughter’s favorite part.

Create Your Own Beaded Necklace
I just love this picture of my sorority sister, Tami, helping my daughter make her necklace.
I made a really cute snowflake hair bow to match my daughter’s outfit but it went missing the morning of the party. One thing about party day…you always have to be ready to improvise…I grabbed some tiny snowflake stickers and stuck them in her hair. She loved it and thought she looked just like Elsa.
This is another favorite picture from the party. That’s my friend, Marisa on the left. We have been friends since preschool. Yes, preschool! She’s my oldest girlfriend, my son’s Godmother, and also a fellow Panda Sister. We Immaculate Heart girls take our Panda Pride very seriously! Here we are, many many years later, and we are not only fortunate enough to remain great friends, but our daughters are only weeks apart. I think that is pretty special.

“It’s Marshmallow!” Big brother decided to take the hits and become Marshmallow. The little kids loved it! My son is such a good sport…he let the little kids take shot after shot and played right along.
Happy Birthday to the Queen of 3!
Frozen Party Dress & Custom Lollipops
I knew the fancy Elsa dress wouldn’t last too long so I had a backup plan…a custom made Elsa t-shirt and fluffy turquoise tutu. The whole outfit really came together with her necklace and crown from Shawna Brockmeier.
I made a Lollipics tower using a Wilton cupcake holder, styrofoam balls, and snow batting. I wanted them to look like they were sitting in the snow.
