Last week we celebrated Sarah’s 4th birthday party! We decide to celebrate her birthday a couple weeks early for two reasons. One was to make sure I didn’t go into early labor and miss the big event and second we moved last weekend so we needed to focus on one thing per weekend. Luckily I didn’t give birth early and was able to enjoy the celebration. In order to take it easy, hubby did a lot of the birthday
Ever since I took Sarah to see the movie, Frozen she has been telling us how she wants her birthday party to be Frozen themed.
One of Sarah’s favorite places to be is the park. Therefore we decided to have her party in a park once again. Unfortunately, just like last year it was a super hot day.
I kept it simple this year and just had a Happy Birthday banner above the food table.
I also framed a quote I found online.Food
We had pizza, two different type of salads and a few snacks to munch on.
Olaf Noses: Sliced carrots
Elsa’s Snowflakes: Should have been white cheddar cheese balls, but I couldn’t find any so instead I served Pirate’s Booty.
Sven’s Antlers: Pretzels Elsa Punch: Pineapple juice and Blue Hawaiian lemonade. Unfortunately the lemonade never made it to the party.Dessert
We made it simple this year and ordered a cake from Costco.Activities
Other then playing in the park I had two stations of activities for the kids to do.
Tattoo Station: Sarah loves tattoos! She can often be found wearing a few tats on each arm.
I bought a package of tattoos from Party City, bought a few sponges from the Dollar Tree and had a bowl filled with water.
Do You Want To Build a Snowman?: Ever since our trip to Lake Arrowhead Sarah keeps asking when we will see the snow again. So I thought it would be fun if we played with snow at the party.(original picture from here)
I bought 2 bottles of shaving cream, a box of baking soda and a few snow themed cookie cutters. I placed them all in a large bin for the kids to play with. Unfortunately we were so busy we never got a a chance to play with the snow.
Queen Elsa: What would a Frozen themed birthday party be without a visit from Queen Elsa? We hired the sweetest Queen Elsa to come to the party. She read a story, played games, sang along to a few songs and even made a coronation celebration by gifting Sarah a necklace.
Sarah’s Birthday Outfit
Sarah is really into tutu’s and dressing up these days, so I was really excited when I found this dress with a tutu at Target.Favors
I made snow-doh for all the kids as party favors. Recipe can be found here.
Sarah even got in the kitchen to help.
It was a great birthday party! Sarah even said “I had the best day ever!” Thank you to all of our family and friends for making Sarah’s 4th birthday party so special.
