Happy Memorial Day weekend!! I’ve finally gotten around to editing the photos from my sweet girl’s 3rd birthday. I feel like it’s taken me forever, so I’m super grateful for the extra day this week to get some projects out of the way! I hope you’ve all been able to do the same.
As many of you know,my daughter’s birthday theme was Frozen. We transformed our home into a winter wonderland on what turned out to be the hottest day we’ve had this year. 74+ degree weather + family and a bouncy castle for the birthday babe, with some extra special details designed by yours truly.
This year’s birthday was quaint, but absolutely perfect. I personally live for celebrations like these. As the host, there’s nothing greater than being able to sit and relax and enjoy guest’s company after all the hard work and preparation. Our baby girl couldn’t have had a better day.
We chose a color scheme of white and blue with silver accents to capture all things Frozen. I designed the dessert table in all white with a shimmer snowflake backdrop and hanging lights. On the ceiling above the dessert table were an array of snowflakes and tissue poms hung to mimic the clouds and snow. I used all white and crystal clear containers and and stands to arrange the sweets tying in some Frozen character figures that I found at Marshalls and my daughter’s Elsa barbie for a finishing touch.
Our decorations consisted of white tissue poms, hand created tassel garland in all white, jumbo balloons and an olaf balloon. We also blew up a variety of small balloons to mimic snowballs and placed all around our home and surrounding our dessert stations. For the flowers, I went with an all white color scheme, choosing billowy hydrangea, roses and carnations to arrange. Each arrangement was finished with a Frozen character paper design, that I simply made in photoshop. Subtle and not over the tops in terms of character designs, which is one of my signatures.
On the menu. We offered a variety of beverages, from organic juices and San Pellegrino to a homemade Vanilla bean and Blueberry infused Lemonade, with lemons and blueberries for garnish.
For lunch we served all of my daughter’s favorite foods. Chicken sausage and homemade turkey burger sliders, grilled zucchini, fresh salads, crudite and fruit, hummus, olives, gluten free and dairy free crackers and chips.
After lunch we sang happy birthday to our little babe! She had so much fun trying to blow out the candles on her mini cake made by me and my hubs.
Looking back, we may have went a bit overboard on the dessert options, but as they say, one can never have too many.
Everyone always looks forward to my homemade lemon sugar cookies with royal icing. I made them with soft blue and white icing and glitter/snowflake embellishments (coming soon to the shop). I’m certainly not an expert in terms of cookie designs, but I thoroughly enjoy making and decorating them, which is one of the reasons I carry the cutters in my shop! All of the cutter designs I used to create the cookies seen here, are available now!
In addition to the cookies, I made lemon and berry cake pops, dipped in white chocolate, and homemade french macarons filled with white chocolate and a fresh blueberry preserves. This time I tried out Annie’s Eats recipe for macaron shells, which I highly recommend. I loved how they turned out! My most successful batch to date!
White and soft blue M&Ms
Vanilla Bean and Berry Blue Jeweled Jelly Bellies
Crystal clear rock candy – aka Elsa’s Icicles
And Lindt White Chocolate Truffles.
One of the many highlights from the party was the sundae station, complete with a sign of Anna asking: Do you want to build a Sundae? This was a little play on the popular song all of us Mommy’s know much better than we’ve ever wanted to, but super worth it to see the look on the kid’s faces. The littles filled their ice-cream cups to the brim with every frozen topping they could point out, including melted chocolate. I’ll be sharing more details on the Frozen sundae bar in an upcoming post, so if you’re planning a frozen themed party in the near future, you’ll be able to make one too!
After gifts, we played pin the nose on Olaf and as guests left, we handed out mini crystal containers filled with white sixlets or “snow” rather.
Each favor container was adorned with a glittered snowflake for a perfectly frozen and posh finishing touch!
This last picture makes my heart completely melt! I can’t get over these adorable smiles and I love how much fun they had celebrating. Seeing the happiness on their faces is what life’s all about!
Thanks for reading! I’ll have much more on the way soon!
