My little girl turned 5 a week ago! I know cliche, but how time flies! She had a Disney Frozen inspired birthday party at school and it was one heck of a blast. Imagine having a party for 40 kids! It definitely was not easy and was eventually scaled down in the end when the toddlers were separated from the group.
I initially did not want to have a big party as she had a HUGE one last year. I did not want to spend too much but since we moved to Singapore and our little girl didn’t seem to be having an easy time fitting in, I thought having a birthday party for her at school would make things better. On top of that, I had loads of free time, so why not?
Find out how I (with loads of help from my sister and in-laws) DIY’d a Frozen birthday party in Singapore after the jump!
Everything was culled from the internet. I was only responsible for putting the whole thing together. 🙂
The dessert table, backdrop, and birthday banner below were all DIY’d. Went to Spotlight in Dhoby Ghaut for the white table cloth. Daiso for huge paper. Popular bookstore for the glittered foams which became her name. Foam tapes for 3D effect were also sourced from Daiso. The crepe paper fan I bought from National Book Store from the Philippines when I was in Cebu a couple of weeks ago.
The paper doiley fans came out quite lovely. My MIL worked late creating them. This was an unexpected find from Phoon Huat bakeshop. Score!
This dessert table was a labor of love. Found organic baby carrots from Cold Storage and called these Olaf’s Nose. Scrumptious chocolatey chocolate crinkles recipe from joyofbaking.com (I used Lindt and Hersheys Kisses). Salted pretzels were found by my mother-in-law from Chong Pang Market in Yishun (what do you know?).
Cupcake recipe was also from joyofbaking.com. Check out her red velvet cupcake recipe. I just changed the color to match the Frozen theme. 🙂 The “teal” chocolate fondue was a mixture of white chocolate, cream, and azure food coloring. 🙂
Frozen cake above is also red velvet cake recipe from joyofbaking.com. I just changed the color. The Happy Birthday bunting on the cake was lovingly made by my sister and my MIL brought in the Frozen cake toppers from the Philippines.
Pillow boxes loot bags with white paper string for handles. Both paper and paper string sourced from Daiso. Doiley from Phoon Huat. Free printable from HomeKeeters which I just customized.
Of course, who can have a Frozen birthday party without the “Do you want to build a snowman?” kit? Marshmallows from Muji and Cold Storage. Salted Pretzels from Chong Pang Market.
Food was ordered from Pastamania. Very professional and everything labeled accordingly. The teachers loved the assorted pastry cakes provided.
The kids had games such as the statue dance and snowfight (loads of newspapers strewn on the ground afterwards). I did not think the teachers were prepared for that one.
The highlight of the party was the Frozen Bubbles! I was inspired from this video which is originally an activity for halloween – Boo Boo Bubbles. Thank you so much for this dry ice experiment. The kids had way too much fun!
The kids were both amazed and so happy at the same time! The gloves were to keep the bubbles from popping. I’ve tried with bare hands and the bubble just disintegrates.
Bubbles were sourced from Daiso. Dry ice delivered from Uni-tat. DIY’d decorated jar from Phoon Huat. The gloves were $2 a pair from Daiso.
The party ended with the pulling of the snowflake pinata – of course! My daughter requires a pinata in her birthday parties. She had a beautiful pocket watch for a pinata last year made by my youngest sister for her Alice in Wonderland birthday party (I should do a post on that one) and this nearly did not happen. Thanks to my sister for putting this together in such a short time.
I saw no point in having a paper mache pinata (all that hard work) so I was very happy to find this easy pinata tutorial.
It was a mad scramble afterwards as mini balloons, play money, confetti, and chocolate fell. Even the adults joined in on the fun too.
The beautiful braided backdrop below made from tablecloth bought from Spotlight was created by my sister. How to here. The balloons I bought from the Philippines but had them blown up in Singapore by Mtrade. Olaf too I bought from them.
The crown tutorial was from Paging Supermom but there was not time to wait for the glue to dry so switched to blue reflective stickers bought from Daiso instead (which were also used for the Frozen text behind). Boys’ antlers template was from the Sisters Suitcase Blog. Both made from foam sheets bought from Popular.
This was one tiring but fun birthday party! 🙂 I love you little girl!
P.S. Need help with putting together a Frozen party in Singapore, let me know and I’m very happy to help out. 🙂
