Frozen Winter Birthday Party Part 1 ~ The Preparations

Hi everyone! We hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day! We, as usual, had a very busy weekend, but great too. A few weeks ago we hosted Hailey's birthday parties at our home (We hosted a friend birthday party one evening and a family party the next evening). At first, the only requirement she had for her friend party was that she wanted a slumber party. So, we had originally planned a theme party based on one of Hailey's favorite book series and made plans for a slumber party (Hailey's first slumber party). However, Hailey decided she wanted a Frozen slumber party. So..... we created a winter theme party with various shades of blue and white and included stars, sparkly number sevens, and snowballs. We, also, asked the girls to come dressed in their Frozen pajamas to include Hailey's request for a Frozen party and because it was a slumber party. Since her birthday was quickly approaching, we had a limited amount of time to plan and prepare for her party. And of course, right after the holidays, we decided to rip up the carpets in our dining room and office/playroom (which were the rooms we would be using for her parties). (If you are new to our blog, you may like to read Dining Room ~ Putting Up The Walls.) This meant that our whole house was in disarray. We still had Christmas items in the family room, furniture stacked in the parlor, front entry way, and upstairs, and sanders, stain, and sealer in the dining room and office. Our house was an obstacle course. (And just in case you're wondering, we had not intended our floors to be such an involved project.) Therefore, we needed to keep her party fun as well as easy.



I made her invitations on our computer
and printed directly on to
 index cards that I already had
from a previous project.
We purchased snowflake stickers
to put on the invitations
for a little extra personal touch and,
then, glued the invitation onto blue card stock.



While trying to come up with games and activities
for the girls, I found our castle bean bag game that we
had made for Hailey's
(You may like to check out Our Parties.)



We purchased inexpensive wood frames
and paint for the kids to paint as a souvenir.
(I took their picture, as a group, to put in the frame.)



I printed business size cards to add to the goodie bags



And then, made goodie bags.








I set the food table up so
it would be ready for dinner.





 I found these wonderful printables



 And, I added inexpensive plastic tablecloths
around the bay window and table to complete the look.


We will be back soon to share more of Hailey's party!

Thank you for visiting Our Family Inspired Home!
