I’ve worked for
weeks days hours for a last minute party for my daughter’s 3rd birthday. I know, you can slap my wrist later. But with the hurricane of a holiday season this year, January crept up on me like an unexpected zit. So with not a lot of time and a shrunken budget thanks to Christmas, I was determined to create a party that would be just as special and magical for my little princess. And I have to say, it was one of the most successful parties to date. No stress, very little day-of prep and lots of great Disney inspired party ideas
Frozen Fever Punch
I always say that a fun party begins with a signature drink. And this signature drink has Frozen Fever all over it! This Frozen Fever Punch is full of colors, flavors and fun! Get the Frozen Fever Party Punch Recipe to make this easy Frozen Fever inspired drink!
Add a drink station with dispenser, cups and ice cream scoop and guests will really enjoy making their own drinks all party long.
How do we keep the kids occupied at a Frozen Fever party? We build snowmen, of course! But not just snowmen, Snowgies were the star of this party. Grab the Snowgies Craft Tutorial for all of the adorable details!
I set up a fun Snowgies craft station at a corner of the room. Directions, a few examples and cups of supplies were all ready for kids (and adults) to engage in a little creativity. I even had some clear goody bags ready for people to take their works of art home!
Frozen Fever Sunflower Banner
I knew I wasn’t going to be able to afford to stock up on licensed Disney Frozen Fever party supplies. So I made this inspired Sunflower Party Banner instead. Only a few dollars made this banner a great addition to our festive theme.
Frozen Fever Cupcakes
I saw these adorable Wilton Sunflower Cupcake liners on clearance at Michael’s (similar ones HERE and HERE) and knew right away I was making cupcakes for the party. Saving money right away on making a cake, I didn’t need to be a world class baker to make these cupcakes shine! Chocolate cake mix, chocolate frosting, and even a few chocolate sprinkles added a great touch. Layered high on a cupcake stand, I love how these cupcakes served as decor as well.
Be warned the cupcake liners are larger than the usual cupcake stand holder, so I added a few Snowgies as a playful touch. I think the improvisation turned out just fine.
Frozen Fever Party Food Ideas
It’s not a Frozen Fever party without great themed food ideas! Here’s the sampling of deliciousness we served at our party. Only the BEST for our Frozen Fever princess:
Dry Banana Hippy Hat – The BEST phrase of the Disney short, I knew I had to bring in the smiles with a great food idea. Good thing it’s right in the name, dry bananas! So these banana chips added a great allergy-friendly snack to the party. And hey, no work!
Anna’s Sandwiches – It’s her favorite food, after all. Sandwiches were only fitting for the party’s main course. I think Anna would approve.
Olaf Noses – Anyone for a snowman nose? These baby carrots make a great veggie option for a party, even the kids can’t resist!
Sunflower Cheese Plate – Isn’t the plate gorgeous? Using triangle wedges of cheddar cheese, I shaped these sunflower petals into an oval shape. Then I piled on the fresh blueberries for the sunflower center. I have to say, the cheese and blueberries were a perfect food combo!
Frozen Fever Pretzel Wands – Sweet & Salty come together for these adorable Frozen Fever inspired Pretzel Wands. Using blue and yellow candy melts, We dipped and drizzled over long pretzel sticks. Add some blue sugar sprinkles for a little “magic touch” and you have a perfect Frozen Fever wand, so easy!
Sunflower Seeds – A great idea for casual party snacking, I took a little inspiration from those beloved Frozen Fever sunflowers! YUM!
Frozen Fever Party Mix – While I was sad this didn’t make the menu (I told you I only had hours of planning!), this Frozen Fever Chex Party Mix would have been AMAZING for our birthday party. I hope you’ll get to make this one for yours!
Frozen Fever Food Labels
Using the same dye method from the Frozen Fever Banner, I made small doilies into cute Frozen Fever food labels, so everyone knew what goodies they were eating. I used white crayon (white markers would have been great too) to write on the labels. Then I taped the sunflower labels onto toothpicks and inserted into the food (I also taped onto the drink dispenser).
A Princess Birthday Girl
And no Frozen Fever party is complete without the guest of honor. My beautiful toddler turned 3, adorned in a new Frozen Fever Elsa dress. She crafted, she ate, she laughed, she smiled, she twirled all day long. It was a wonderful party, one of the best so far. I am so happy that I was able to take a little bit of time to show my girl how much she is LOVED.
There you have it! With only a few hours of planning and a little creativity, we had a wonderful 3rd birthday party, inspired by Disney’s Frozen Fever. If you love my party ideas, please see my other popular parties for more budget friendly ideas.
