My kids anticipate the holidays almost as much for the new kids movies that are coming out as the food and presents! Over the summer I took my kids to the movies. During the previews, they had the cutest Digital short from Pixar. It was about a slightly funny looking, but adorable snowman. A few weeks later I learned that he was going to be from Disney’s latest movie. As soon as I heard that, the party wheels started turning! This weekend it all came together and I’m excited to share it here, just a few days before the movie opens this week. There are lots of easy DIY ideas here, so I’ll be sure to share those over the coming few days so that you can create your own snowman party in minutes!
I wanted the party to have an icy feel, hence the blues and white color scheme. I added pops of orange for interest.
The glittered FROZEN sign was a must. Wood letter from Hobby Lobby were transformed in a matter of minutes with some glue and Martha Stewart Glitter. Simple white paper chains gave the feeling of ice and snow overhead. The little snowman donut treats are super easy to make! Check out the tutorial here: Snowman Donuts
The premise of the digital short for Frozen, was a snowman, Olaf, who sneezes and come to pieces. It was so cute, I had the crazy idea of creating snowman pieces as both a favor and activity for the kids. They could play with the snowman parts and create silly snowmen, and then take them home and eat them! I contacted my favorite cookie lady…the AMAZING Elizabeth of www.lizybbakes.com and she was on board! Seriously, she is oozing talent! When I saw these perfectly constructed Olaf pieces, I was amazed! The kids had a blast playing with them even after the shoot was over…they didn’t want to eat them!
For a few healthier “snowman food”" options, I opted for pretzels, raisins and carrots…all things that could be considered snowman parts.
If you know me, then you know I can’t resist coming up with outfits to match! My little Ashley LOVES her hair in a donut bun, so I thought adding a headband and some snowman parts to her bun would be too funny!
These plastic milk bottles are super easy to create and look adorable if I do say so myself! little pompoms, a felt scarf, and a straw with a top hat make them easy and cute!
I’ll be back with a few tutorials for this party…the snowflake chargers, the milk bottles, the snow favors, the build a snowman bags and more!
