We were so thrilled when one of our favorite clients asked us to create the perfect FROZEN WONDERLAND birthday for her little girl. The mom asked that it not be too brand heavy but feel like a Winter Wonderland. As it was a 100'degree Los Angeles day this posed a small challenge :). We started by deciding that we would use mainly the colors white and silver along with the shape of a snowflake. We hand glittered a few dozen snowflakes and then got to attaching theme to all the elements such as the glittered mason jars for flowers, the plastic cups for the juice and the lollipops. We also used the silhouette of Elsa throughout and I thought the effect was just lovely. We even cut out tiny Elsa silhouettes for my straw toppers!
We knew we wanted to add some old world touches so we hand made a gorgeous banner that in lieu of saying the usual Happy Birthday said "True Love - Sisters". We just loved how it turned out and it was very easy to make by purchasing 2 different fabrics from Joanns Crafts and then glittering and gluing wood letters onto the triangle cut fabric. We handmade some beautiful Princess Crowns which turned out beautifully and all the little girls loved them.
We had a lovely Elsa and Anna Princess for games and of course Olaf made a special appearance! It was a truly magical day and once again proved that everybody needs a little FROZEN to melt their hearts.

My two gorgeous boys are born 3 days but 3 years apart so one was turning 11 and the other 8 so we really had to come up with a theme that made them BOTH happy! My littlest likes anything NEON and so that was his choice for one half of the theme. My oldest loves old time Westerns and also the culture and believes of the American Indians and thus the NEON POW WOW was born. I’m not sure what it was about this theme but it pushed my creative juices up about 100 knotches and I went crazy creating NEON everything forthe event. It was my biggest DIY to date – I went DIY bannanas!
