The Frozen 2 release date is still years away, but Frozen-mania has never died! If your little one just can’t get enough of Anna, Elsa, and Olaf, a Frozen-themed birthday party is sure to put a smile on her face! There’s plenty of branded merchandise out there to help you get started, but here are a few tips on how to throw a Frozen birthday party and take it to the next level.
How to Throw a Frozen Birthday Party
Set the mood with the right décor
To get started, create a winter wonderland at home. You can use a color scheme straight from the film with shades of white, silver, purple, and pink. Look for tablecloths, napkins, and balloons in these hues. Decorate with paper snowflakes. You can either buy these or make them yourself with the help of your children. If you have silvery tinsel left over from the holidays, reuse this as part of your theme. There’s also a wealth of printables out there, including invitations and banners.
Make it a dress-up party
Half of the fun of throwing a theme party like this is giving your guests the chance to dress up! You can find Frozen costumes at Funidelia, or opt for a DIY approach with an old blue dress, a tiara, and purple eye makeup. To make sure no one feels left out, invest in a few props like an Elsa wig or a carrot nose, so that there’s something for everyone to wear. You can also set these props out and create a home photo booth where guests can snap their pictures.
Create the perfect Frozen cake
No party’s complete without refreshments, and fortunately it’s easy to bake or buy a Frozen cake. You can bake your own with a simple vanilla sponge and powdery blue icing, topped with Elsa and Anna figurines. Cupcakes also work great for this type of party. Sprinkle your blue fairy cakes with flaked coconut for a snowflake-like effect. Other food ideas could include hot chocolate with marshmallows, snowflake-shaped cookies or blue jello.

Plan Frozen-themed activities
Kids are pretty great at entertaining themselves, particularly when they get to dress up and eat cake! But to keep the party running smoothly, it’s a good idea to plan a few age-appropriate activities as well. In addition to a photo booth, you can convince a friend to don an Elsa costume and come to visit the children. Set up an arts and crafts table where children can build a snowman, make their own snowball art using cotton balls, or snowflakes using colorful paper and glitter. There are also plenty of games to play. Instead of pin the tail on the donkey, try pinning it on a reindeer. Frozen statues is also a perfect game for this theme! Play the movie’s soundtrack, and when it stops the children must stand in place as if they’ve been frozen.
