Emma and I met (online!) in a networking group, and hit it off straight away. Since then we’ve met each other (in real-life!) and had fun working on some fabulous events together.
We were delighted to create some “Snowflake” themed party stationery for her daughter’s fourth birthday. Read on to find out about how Emma planned and styled the event.
Since her last birthday 12 months ago, Ruby was desperate to have a Frozen themed party. It’s all she ever talked about! The ideas started from there, however it wasn’t until a couple of months ago that the planning process took hold.
I decided I didn’t want to do the generic Frozen decorations that you see at the shops, so instead went with a colour theme of blues and whites, making the party into a snow palace.
I also initially wanted to make it a more of a DIY project rather than outsourcing a lot of items, however, I contacted a lovely lady called Liz from Liz’s Cookie Jar who created the delicious Frozen themed cookies. I also wanted something different for the party bags this year rather than just lollies so I got in contact with a lovely lady, Jaye, from Dough4Fun and ordered some personalised frozen inspired play dough tubs for party favours.
I DIYed my own wands, using balloon sticks, ribbon, snowflake decoration, stick on gems and of course a hot glue gun. I ordered some water bottle labels and choc wrappers, although last minute, the always lovely Anna from Print & Party was able to accommodate my needs and help me out which was much appreciated.
I got a digital file Elsa image from my sister in-law at Smyk Designs and had it enlarged to fit a beautiful frame I had purchased awhile ago and knew it would have a purpose one day.
I ordered the tulle table skirt from an overseas supplier and was waiting in anticipation hoping the colour would work. When that arrived I was extremely happy as I able to get my mum to make some mini tulle skirts out of the leftover material to use on the little stools for the kids table just to add that extra touch.
Due to some budget issues I decided to make the cake and cupcakes myself, although I am nowhere near a baker at all, however I was determined to give it go! There may have been a few meltdown moments and late night icing dramas but it came together in the end even though I didn’t get the exact cake I orginally wanted, it was enjoyed by all and made with love.
After weeks of planning and prepping it all finally came together after much anticipation from Ruby who woke up everyday in the lead up asking, “Is it was my party day yet?!” She was over the moon with everything and had so much fun celebrating with her friends and family who were able to attend!
