Frozen Birthday Party with SNOW

Lilah requested a FROZEN birthday party for her 5th birthday. Frozen is the theme I have done more than any other. When I owned my boutique, we hosted almost a years worth of "Frozen Royal Ball"s every Sunday in addition to countless birthday parties. Even still, I was so thrilled to style one just for her, years later. This party was unlike any other I've thrown before. With the exception of a small pool party or BBQ with adults, I almost never host birthday parties outside. I will publish another post with everything I learned about throwing an outdoor party.
On Christmas Eve, Lilah's grandparents surprised her and Chloe with a big pile of real snow, delivered to our front yard in South Florida. It was easily on of the best nights of her life and we knew we wanted to do it again for her birthday party. What a perfect activity for a Frozen birthday party. Many of our guests had never even seen snow before so it was a really special day. They are still talking about it weeks later. In case you're wondering, it was not cold outside but the snow lasted until the next morning. For reference, we had 5 tons of snow delivered for about 20 kids and it was perfect.

I received so many DMs on Instagram about where to find snow delivery in your area. To find a snow provider, all I did was google "Snow Delivery in South Florida" and then called around to the places that popped up. Its usually companies that sell bags of ice. They shave down the ice in a big machine on a truck and it shoots out as snow.

Since this was on outdoor party, I didn't go crazy with decorations, which was admittedly difficult for me. We rented a big white tent that I decorated with a massive 15 foot balloon garland from Balloons and Weights. They were able to customize a set for me that included metallic silver, clear, light blue, and baby blue plus a balloon strip and glue dots. I tied it on the frame of the entrance of the tent. Other than that, we had the most gorgeous plates and napkins from Daydream Society. The second I saw them, I knew they were absolutely perfect for a Frozen party. I also created a sign that said "Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?" that we stuck right in the snow.
The cake was a gorgeous ombre blue red velvet buttercream cake with white fondant snowflakes. She added "ice" made from sugar and I added the Elsa figurine and cardstock "5". We also had a dozen cupcakes to fill in the table which was great to have for anyone that needed to leave early, to take home with them. And lastly, we had these adorable snowman playdo sets that we made. The snow was really the main activity and that was really enough for the 2 hour party but I did have some cute sticker sheets and some snowflake flash tattoos in case anyone needed a break. It was a fantastic day and I learned that outdoor parties aren't as intimidating as they seem. I can't wait to see what 5 holds for my girl!
