Kennedy’s 4th Birthday – FROZEN

There was no doubt in my mind that Kennedy would want a Frozen birthday party this year. We have been living in Arendelle since we saw the movie in the theatre. For the invitation, I just added text to a regular photo – super cheap that way :)

I decided to decorate with Christmas décor and a couple of Frozen banners. Of course food is my favorite part :) Thanks to Pinterest for all of the ideas. Daddy also made a delicious gumbo – and we had the perfect weather for it!

Since Halloween is approaching, I let the girls wear their costumes (and hair) for the party. They have been begging to wear these. They kept their hair on for a little while, but they ditched the wigs when it was play time.

My favorite decoration for the entire party was this Let It Go banner I bought off of Etsy. It was SO pretty and well made. I also bought the coordinating cake banner for the top of the cake. I think I will hang this in the playroom when I find a spot – it’s so pretty!

Since we had some Frozen dolls already, I decided to use that as décor also. The day before the party, I found a giant stuffed Olaf at Wal-Mart so I just HAD to get him as the final touch :)

For the background of the cake, I just hung shimmery door curtains to add sparkle. I taped a store bought banner to the front.

The cake was AMAZING as usual. My friend Toni even had added little sugar crystals to mimic ice blocks. I usually have cake leftover from parties, but this year she must have made it extra tasty – no slices left!

After all the kids were settled inside, it was time for the big surprise of the party. Kennedy had no idea that I got a “real” Elsa to come to the party. We arranged for her to come to the front door and knock…then we made Kennedy open the door. Her blue eyes just lit up and she just soaked everything in as Elsa made her way inside.

Elsa was great! She read a Frozen story to the group, then put makeup on the girls. The boys were surprisingly interested in Elsa as well, so she drew black lines under their eyes so they could be football players. She also sang “Let It Go” while all the kids sang along – super cute!

Elsa helped us light the candles and sing Happy Birthday to Kennedy. Jules almost dove into the cake to try and blow out the candles, so Elsa had to stop her – my girl loves birthdays LOL

If Elsa weren’t right behind her, I think Jules may have landed face first in the cake – thank you Elsa ;)

Next, Kennedy opened her presents while Elsa watched and “oooo’d and ahhh’d!” She was so good with the kids and all of their questions. My favorite was, “What’s your last name?”

Her favorite gift was the iPad, or course. We decided to get one for the family, but we snuck it in as a birthday present. She was super excited.

Kennedy is a lucky girl to have all of her friends and family come celebrate with her!

It was time for Elsa to leave, so she gave hugs and headed out. We had to distract some of the kids who were trying to look to see if she drove away or faded away like magic ;)
