Frozen Party Ideas
Here are some ideas from Bay Area companies to help create the perfect Frozen-themed bash:
Invite Elsa to the Party: The princess will come to your house in costume and sing the hit song “Let it Go.” She’ll also turn water into ice, start an indoor snowball fight, and face paint. Rates start at $200 per hour. Book at least one month in advance.
Ice Castle Cake: Designers at Copenhagen Bakery in Burlingame can replicate Elsa’s ice castle with sugar, fondant and handmade icicles. Be sure to order at least one week in advance. Ice castle cakes start at $800. The bakery has more affordable options, including a flat image cake or half-sheet with Anna or Elsa figurines starting at $120.
Hire a Fairy Godmother: Want to turn your home into an ice castle but don’t have the time? Cherry on Top Parties will do it for you. Owner Kelly Vockell will create the whole affair from start to finish including invitations, set up, photos, and clean-up. Rates start at $450.
Have the Party at Someone Else’s Castle: San Francisco’s Peekadoodle Kids Club offers a 10 kid, 1.5 hour package [$895] or a 20 kid, 2 hour package [$1295]. Kids create snowflake cupcakes or decorate their own tiaras, before going on a scavenger hunt through Peekadoodle to put Olaf back together!
Want to create the Disney magic yourself? Here are some DIY Frozen Party Ideas:
Decorative Ice: Scatter magic ice crystals near the centerpiece of your food table.
Frozen Cookies: Create snowflakes or crowns out of sugar cookies. You can buy different cookie cutters to go with the theme. Decorate with blue or white icing.
Olaf Water Bottles: Create your own snowman by decorating water bottles with eyes, nose and buttons.
Rent a Snow Cone machine: Have the kids create their own frozen desserts.
Marshmallow Olafs: Take wooden skewers, add marshmallows, pretzels, chocolate chips, and candy corn and you have treats the kids will love.
Music: Let the kids provide the entertainment by singing their favorite tunes from the movie.
