Now that I have shared most of the details of my daughter’s Disney Frozen birthday party, I am excited to show you how it all came together. I created a handmade invitation, fun party games, a beautiful cake and cute Olaf treat bags.

It started out with an invitation. This is, by far, one of my most favorite invitations I have made yet. It was created using my Cricut Explore and my sewing machine.
Of course, when everyone came we had the movie, Frozen, playing. The kids enjoyed watching part of the movie while they created their bracelets inside.
We played so many fun party games. We had a snowball fight, pin the nose on Olaf, a bracelet making station, snowball toss and a pinata. Learn more about how to create these Frozen party games.
I made a beautiful cake. I used this tutorial from I am Baker to create a rosette cake. I was inpsired by an idea I saw on Kara’s Party Ideas to create this ombre rosette cake.
It looks beautiful and intimidating, but is really easy to make. I first baked two separate cakes that were two layers each. I used a blue boxed cake from Duncan Hines and a regular white cake mix. I baked one 8″ and one 10″ layer in each color. I layered the cakes so the inside would have a layer of blue, then white, then blue, then white again. There was a layer of frosting in between each layer.
To create the ombre effect for the rosettes, I made 3 batches of buttercream. I dyed each one using the Wilton colorings. Then, using the tutorial above, you simply pipe on your roses, starting with the darkest color on the bottom and finishing with the white on the top. This decoration really does not take long once the frosting is made. And it makes a big impact.
I also fancied up an ordinary birthday candle with some purple, blue and silver sequins. They were glued on with Aleene’s quick dry tacky glue. I outlined the edge with blue glitter glue.
To decorate the cupcakes, I used the same rosette technique that I used to frost the cake. I simply piped one rosette on each cupcake. The cupcakes on the top tier of the stand were embellished with glittered snowflakes.
Above the table we used paper laterns, glittery snowballs and handmade giant 3D snowflakes. I found the instructions to make the 3D snowflakes on Disney.
For the dessert table, I used a large silver tablecloth as the main back drop. I made a swag for the top of the wall using a light blue plastic tablecloth. I purchased a large Olaf balloon and tied it to the table. The dessert table contained the cake, cupcakes, punch and serveware – silverware, plates, cups and napkins.

Note: Be sure to include a Sharpie near your plastic cups. This way your guests can label their cups and you can cut down on a little of the waste that comes along with parties.
Since we had a mid-afternoon party we did not do a full food spread. However, we did have a veggie tray, grapes, chips and salsa and white cheddar popcorn.
I made Olaf Snowman Treat bags for the kids to take home. They also got to take home the bracelet they made.
