Unique parties with Elsa and friends.
Published: March 30, 2015
If you ask a little girl what kind of party she wants, there’s a 90 percent chance that she’ll scream, “Frozen, please!” The Disney animated movie has caught the attention of so many, and now parents are scrambling to bring the movie to life by creating unique parties with Elsa and friends.
This is just what 6-year-old Kylie Stephens got when her mother Nikki Stephens asked Sharp Soirées to transform the food court at the Riverchase Galleria into a “Frozen” setting. Complete with linens, chargers, lush floral arrangements, and an array of delicious desserts, Kylie and friends walked in and their jaws dropped.
“I’ve been to the Galleria a lot with my mom and never would I have imagined that the food court could look as cool as it did for my party,” Kylie says. “My friends and I really felt like we were at a fancy dinner, and it was so cool to see all of the “Frozen” elements in the decorations.”
So how exactly did the transformation take place? Easy: do-it-yourself projects! For example, the large napkin rings were made using jewelry wire from Michael’s and snowflakes from Dollar Tree. The wire was formed into a circle ring and glued to the back of the snowflake. Another cool and easy DIY project was the “Frozen” centerpieces. These were made by cutting out mirror images, then attaching a dowel between each image. The cutouts were then inserted into a Styrofoam base and covered with tissue paper. The finished touch included wrapping the base with printables honoring the birthday girl.
“In addition to the fun DIY projects for the kids, I always feel that it’s nice to be able to include elements that the adults will enjoy as well,” says Brittany Sharp, event planner. “All of the floral arrangements were very easy to make; I picked up an assortment of flowers from a local floral shop and arranged them inside vases from my home.”
While the décor was full of DIY projects, the desserts also included easy yet impressive options for all the party attendees. For instance, each guest place setting included plastic flutes that were covered in glitter to add some sparkle to the table. While the glitter caught the eye of some it was the contents of the glasses that really made the kids smile! Each glass was filled with milk and then topped with a snowflake straw that was adorned with a powdered doughnut!
