The cold never bothered us anyways, and this unique spin on Arandale was a HUGE hit for our Frozen birthday party.

The combination of pastels and iridescent shimmer play into the winter wonderland while keeping it fun and sparkly which is sure to please even Elsa herself. 

We shied away from all the Frozen branded party supplies, and instead, stuck to a snow theme and even hacked a grocery store cake.

2 — Strawberry Party

This strawberry party is sweet as pie. The colors are so whimsical and fun.

And the DIY aspects of the tablecloth and the hanging strawberries totally won us over. Plus, we love how this generic theme can work for any age, even teens.

Adult party guests 21 and up can enjoy our strawberry bellini or our strawberry hibiscus cooler.

If you don’t have an ice cream, you can easily make your own DIY ice cream bar cart. Instead of serving your frozen treats in the typical cones, get creative with these chocolate cupcake liners.
