Win £30 to spend on Party Supplies: A helping hand for your next celebration
We recently celebrated Bella’s fifth birthday with a Frozen themed party. Olaf was very pleased as it was a rather pleasant summer’s day! One of my favourite things about a party is the actual planning and gathering all the bits and pieces of table decor. As it was a Frozen party I went for a blue theme. We had nine girls in total, including Bella, and held the party at our home. We were able to fit them around our dining table for food without too much of a squeeze as the children were aged between three and five years old.
Our Frozen birthday party setup:
- Wipe clean blue table cloth – a simple blue table cloth which we were able to wipe clean and store in a party box in the attic for future birthdays
- Blue paper plates – to save costs I went for plain paper plates, but patterned napkins
- Frozen napkins – this was only one of two actual branded items that I purchased – they looked great on the plates
- Snowflake lunch boxes – I popped a plate of sandwiches, cocktail sausages, mini cheese and onion rolls and chicken poppers on the table. In their lunchboxes they had a packet of dried fruit ‘sweeties’, a box of raisins, a carton of juice, some pom bear style crisps (Tesco’s own bunny version as Bella liked the pink packets). There was also a small bottle of water each.
- Silver hearts – I sprinkled silver shiny hearts over the table to make it sparkle
- Cupcake stand – instead of a single cake Bella chose a pack of 12 cupcakes (only £1.90) and I used a cupcake stand saved from our wedfest – they looked great and we added a number 5 candle in the top cake to sing happy birthday to Bella. The children loved picking a cupcake each
- Giant balloons – I purchased 6 giant balloons and these provided most of the entertainment whilst we waited for the princesses
- Princesses – the most expensive part, but still quite reasonable at £115 for two hours, I hired Elsa and Anna to come and provide all the party games, photos and entertainment for one hour in the middle
- Olaf – I bought an all in one olaf outfit for around £15 from eBay for Ben to wear! I didn’t tell him, but I think he secretly was pleased and had fun on the day, even if he denies it!
- Party bags – I used plain pink party bags and stuck on a square gift tag of Anna and Elsa onto each one. Each party bag was filled with a small unicorn notebook and matching pen, pencil and rubber, along with a small tube of bubbles. Whilst the children ate the party food I sneakily printed off some photos of them with the princesses and added one of these to each of the party bags
It really was a fab party and went so well! The table set up looked amazing and the children had a great time. I love organising parties and seeing everything come together.
