Our kids don’t get birthday parties every year, but when they turn five they get a big one. And naturally Lyra chose Frozen as her theme. Which fit well considering we are still wrapping up a crazy winter even well into spring.
We were so incredibly fortunate that Jessica, owner of Jessica’s Cakes and Sweet Blooms, has a soft spot in her heart for my kiddos and agreed to make the cake. We knew the cake would be the centerpiece and based everything else around it. Cotton “snow” was thrown everywhere, and blue and white rock candy and other desserts were scattered on the table. Since I decorate our Christmas tree with silver and blue, we had a ton of snowflakes in the needed colors and just frosted everything. It was awesome. And magical.
Lyra chose a mango and vanilla cake, and Jessica wowed us ALL with the cake’s design. Frosted trees, and shards of sugar ice full of color and texture. It was stunning.
I hung my vintage 50s ice cycles from our giant gold frame in our studio, and had silver sparkles in every little nook.
Kids drank “melted snow” (water) and could add silver or blue sprinkles to it (like they needed more sugar).
John drew winter scenes for kids to color and we had a couple other activities followed by a screening of the movie.
Such a happy day for our youngest!
