Disney Frozen Spring & Summer Olaf Birthday Party Ideas

In February we had a Disney Frozen Birthday party for my 8 year old. I shared ideas from that birthday party in my Disney Frozen Birthday Party post. Of course, when May rolled around, my soon to be 4 year old decided that she would like to have a Frozen Birthday party too! I was pretty much Frozen-ed out at this point, but wanted to make her happy, so I decided to put a Spring/Summer spin on her party and run with the “Olaf in Summer” image/colors. Again, thanks to Pinterest, Etsy, Amazon, a local cookie baker and a local party shop I was able to pull a cute party together. And thankfully it is now possible to find Disney Frozen Birthday Party Supplies! As with the first Disney Frozen birthday party that I shared, the images you are about to see do not depict professional party planning skills. However if you are looking for realistic ideas on how to host your very own Disney Frozen Birthday Party (with limited skills), this is the post for you! :-)

Disney Frozen Birthday Cupcakes

First up is the Disney Frozen Birthday Cupcakes that I whipped up for the party. I purchased the cupcake stand at Homegoods several years ago, and I have definitely gotten my money’s worth out of it! (find similar stands here) The folks at my favorite local party shop created the adorable Frozen themed cupcake picks that made the cupcakes unique. I didn’t want to go overboard with Olaf, so they incorporated all of the main characters on the cupcake picks. frozen birthday cupcake ideas

To make these Disney Frozen Birthday Cupcakes, I purchased a box of Duncan Hines Yellow Cake Mix for the cake, and I used my Buttercream Icing Recipe for the white icing. I chose to purchase Reynolds Silver Foil Cupcake Liners for a little bit of shimmer. I applied the icing with a Pampered Chef Decorator Bottle Set that my mom gave me for Christmas a few years ago, but this set looks similar. Or you could use an icing bag with a larger tip. After icing the cupcakes I sprinkled them with white sugar crystal sprinkles.

If you prefer chocolate cupcakes, do yourself a favor and try the Pioneer Woman’s Chocolate Sheet cake recipe. It takes a little extra effort to make, but is totally worth it, and the cupcakes (and cake) stays moist and delicious for days.

If you are in the market for a cupcake carrier, this one is my personal favorite. I received it to review several years ago and have gotten tons of use out of it.

Disney Frozen Olaf Water Bottle Labels

I had purchased Disney Frozen Water Bottle Labels for the first Frozen Birthday Party that we hosted, so I decided to do the same for this party. I was happy to find these adorable “Some People are Worth Melting For” labels on Etsy for cheap. Yes, it takes extra effort to print (on white card stock), cut and glue (then tape the seam) on these, but the kids get a kick out of them and they add a little bit of flair to the food table. disney frozen summer birthday party food ideas Speaking of food, I’m kicking myself, but I didn’t take one picture of the food table. How did that happen?! I will say that I chose to do a cookout for this party. We grilled hotdogs, hamburgers and brats, and served macaroni salad, raw veggies, cheesy potatoes and a 7 bean bake dish. I used small beach buckets to serve the chips and pretzels in – with the shovels acting as “spoons”. I purchase these for a Lego Summer Beach Birthday Party that we hosted last year, and I use them only for food (I store them in the basement with my other supplies).

Disney Frozen Party Balloons and Decor

Because I loved the mason jar balloon centerpieces that my local party shop put together for my 8 year old’s party, I decided to do the same for this party. They did an awesome job of playing off of the beach theme when selecting these colors. Those ladies know their stuff!

If you want to make these yourself it would be super easy. I am seeing decorative mason jar lids at craft stores and online right now, and you can find gumballs at Party Supply or Candy Stores.

Here is a close up of the mason jar and gumballs:

I rented the Disney Frozen Cardboard Cutouts seen in the image below (available for purchase here) from a local woman and placed those in the area where my daughter opened her gifts. And I grabbed some random decor and dressed up my foyer table with things that I already had around the house – placing the invitation (that I made myself) in a picture frame from my office.

Disney Frozen Olaf Birthday Party Favors

Finally – the party favors! I am not a fan of expensive party favor bags for kids. I refuse to spend money on things that are likely going to get thrown away, so I tend to go for edible treats when I do party favors (I don’t’ always do them!). This year I decided to purchase these adorable (and super yummy!) Olaf Cookies from a local baker who works out of her home. I love supporting small business since I run one myself, and these cookies did not disappoint. You can find other Disney Frozen Party Favor Ideas here.

I chose to display the cookies in a small galvanized bucket, and that added a little bit of decoration to the party as well.

Overall, I am really happy with how this party came together!
