Inside: Easy ideas for a Frozen party which will wow the little guests. This is a birthday party for girls that they will remember forever. With simple food, decoration and printable ideas, this is an easy party to replicate that the kids are going to absolutely love.
One thing that I seem to be really bad at is showing you the parties of my own kids. Take for instance this Frozen party I held for my daughter’s 4th birthday.
She is now 7!
Yes, a bit behind schedule arn’t I!
When we held this party, Frozen was all the rage. I had watched the movie like a bazillion times, and if that wasn’t enough we had the CD blaring out “Let it go” over and over again.
She had the dress ups of both Elsa and Anna, plus the hair piece, crown, gloves. You name it, she had it. Then suddenly it was all over.
No more Frozen.
She still watches the movie, like every six months or so, but that Frozen craze has well and truly had it’s day. She is far too ‘cool’ for all that baby stuff now. So she tells me!
At the time you think it’s driving you crazy and that it will never end. But looking back now it brings magical memories and that Princess age is one I will treasure forever.
She remained in the Princess phase for her 5th Princess birthday party, then it moved to a Trolls themed birthday party and most recently she had a rock star party for her 7th birthday. How did it change so quickly?
The Frozen party was however a delight to hold. It was a super hot day, but the decor was so light and refreshing. All the little girls came dressed up in their Frozen gowns and they looked simply amazing.
Frozen Party Decorations
Whenever I hold a character themed party, I try not to go overboard with the character decorations. There are two reasons for this.
1: I think it’s cheaper to think outside the box a little and steer away from all the themed merchandise
2: It allows me to be a little more creative
Whilst we did of course have lots of Frozen character items, I wanted the main decor to resemble the snow.
At the top of the fans I placed a Frozen merchandise happy birthday banner purely because it hid all the sins of the streamers I had hung!
I found a gorgeous snowflake glittery piece of material which we turned into a tablecloth and it looked stunning.
At each side of the party table hanging down beside the fans, I created some hanging snowball streamers.
This was easily completed with some small polystyrene balls which were threaded through the middle. It framed the fans and the table beautifully.

I was also pretty excited to find some fake snow which I sprinkled around the water bottles. The kids were absolutely fascinated by it.
Frozen Party Food
Preparing the food is always fun, and I try to theme it as much as possible whilst also keep it incredibly simple. I don’t like fussing around with baking, so simplicity is the key.
My friend made me a beautiful castle cake which we decorated with Frozen figurines. This was definitely the highlight of the table which created many gasps from the kids.
I always make the cupcakes myself and created them with a fondant snowflake and edible glitter on the top.
Even though the food was pretty simple we tried to theme it. For example we had:
- Frozen hearts (strawberry’s dipped in white chocolate)
- Kristoff’s ice blocks (Jelly slice)
- Sven’s antler’s (Pretzels)
- Olaf’s noses (Baby carrots)
It was a bit of a sugar table, but my daughter loves her sweet food and it doesn’t hurt once in a while!
Frozen Party Favors & Games
Rather than hand out a party bag when the kids leave a party, I try and make it a bit more fun and incorporate it into a party game.
I made a map of six Frozen characters and placed print out’s of those characters around the garden. All the kids were given a favor bag and a map.
As a group the children followed the map to collect their favor items and placed them in their bag. They absolutely loved it. I always find the treasure trails are an absolute hit.
I also purchased some large polystyrene balls and had three laundry baskets handy. I placed a number on each laundry basket (1, 2 and 3) and placed them in a triangle on the ground. Numbers 1 and 2 were at the front with number 3 at the back.
The children were then given 6 balls and standing behind a line undertook a snowball toss. The points were added up depending which laundry basket they got the balls into. The child with the highest score was the winner.
A coloring station was set up with Frozen coloring sheets, and of course we had pass the parcel and musical statues to “let it go”.
All the games were simple, but the kids enjoyed each and every one of them.
If your little girl loves the Frozen movie, this is an ideal party theme for her. It’s gorgeous to create and certainly has a magical feel to it. It will be one of those parties that you will definitely remember forever.
