Birthday Party Inspiration: Frozen Themed Styled Shoot

I’ll be honest with you, I haven’t seen Frozen! Wow, right?! How on earth have I managed to miss the film that practically everybody was talking about for months after its release?!

I guess the lack of children meant I didn’t absolutely have to watch it and so sadly I’ve just not got around to it. But I promise I will at some point, because I absolutely love Disney films! I’m pretty sure I could still sing along to “Let It Go” even though I’ve yet to watch it ;) Maddie & Zoe’s version is still my favourite rendition of that song! :D

Despite not seeing practically the biggest family film of the last year, I still know a beautiful party when I see one…

Antonina, of Antonina Mamzenko Photography, sent us the following fantastic photos that are sure to provide you with tons of inspiration for hosting a party that your little Frozen fans would absolutely adore. Over to Antonina…

A Frozen silver and blue birthday party

A few weeks ago I had an opportunity to work with some amazing suppliers on a Frozen-themed birthday party inspiration shoot.

Melissa from The Sweet Hostess and Laura from The Sweet Stylist have put together a beautiful sweet table that was not only child friendly but also included many adult favourites like chocolate brownies! The sweets used were meringue kisses, raspberry jelly beans, parma violets, paint balls, milk bottles and rock candy. They all complimented the colour theme perfectly and were displayed on ceramic cake stands and glass bon bon and sweet jars. We also used a silver sequin tablecloth which added the ‘chill factor’ and added a touch of sparkle and glamour to the table.

The sweet jars were all labelled with gorgeous candy labels, by Garden of Eden, that had little jewels and glitter snowflakes just to create that extra sparkle factor. Lots of special touches were added such as the paper straw labels, old fashioned mini milk bottles and printed wooden utensils.

Tamara from Once Upon a Time Birthdays brought along the gorgeous princesses Elsa and Anna and our child models were in awe of them, they just couldn’t believe their favourite princesses were there in person!

Party ideas : birthday balloons

This is the one where I sneakily hide some self promotion in lovely party inspiration! Because one of the printable invites I’ve created for my little shop Paperling features birthday balloons, and I decided it would be nice to do a mini round up of other ways you could create a party themed solely around balloons!

The great thing about balloons is that they come in so many colours. Add enough to the proceedings and you really don’t need anything else in the way of decoration, it’s going to look pretty and fun enough with all those balls of colour bobbing about!

Here are a few ideas for you…

Birthday balloon party ideas

Awesome birthday balloon ideas:

  1. 
Printable invites from, erm, me! Aka Paperling :)
  2. Helium-filled balloons from 
Oh Happy Day make adorable place cards!
  3. 
A fantastic cake idea from Wedding Chicks is to use mini water balloons as a cake topper. Note: the cake doesn’t have to be this fancy! A simple white iced cake would be perfect.
  4. 
Confetti-filled balloons like these from Un Beau Jour look lovely and would be fun for the kids to pop!
  5. 
And this balloon garland from Hands Occupied would make a fun backdrop to the party proceedings!
