frozen fiesta // london's 4th birthday

I'm not a big fan of character-themed parties. so you can imagine my "excitement" when my daughter insisted on a Frozen party. Last year she asked for a Strawberry Shortcake party, and I managed to do that one without the characters... but 3-almost-4-year-olds can be rather demanding, so I wasn't sure how I would pull off this theme without using the very person she is obsessed with.

One of my kids' favorite movies right now is "The Book of Life", and since London's party was going to be so close to cinco de mayo, I presented a "Frozen Fiesta" to the birthday girl... incorporating both of her favorite movies. And she went for it! (My husband, meanwhile, thought it was the weirdest idea ever, which I can't deny!)

"We" decided to do a fun fiesta theme in the frozen colors, incorporating some Mexican-style florals that also resembled those used in Frozen. My little client approved everything, and I don't know if she even realized that nothing had Elsa on it (a miracle in itself!)

The party was catered by El Pollo Loco, and the desserts were done by Dutch Girl Cookies. we did Mexican hot chocolate cupcakes, "snowflake" coconut cream cheese cupcakes, churro treats, fiesta cookies & oreo pops! and of course, no Frozen party would be complete without a visit from the real-life Elsa. The girls went crazy!!
