so. a little background first.
the trip i took to florida with the girls last month was supposed to also have a trip to disney and universal tacked on. as we planned, it just wasn’t looking like the best financial decision. and the logistics of it all weren’t coming together as wonderfully as we had originally hoped. so, we chatted with the kids and negotiated a consolation prize. they said they would rather go to ny to see my parents (a trip which we would likely do anyways) and isaac wanted a voldemort wand and anna wanted a princess at her birthday.
so. i ordered an elsa.
and then proceeded to plan a frozen wonderland extravaganza….
the cake table. special thanks to derek for streamer assembly contributions. i made miles and miles of that snowflake garland and i couldn’t be happier with how it looked. the table skirt. i will never do that again.
close up of the cake. (i’ll dedicate another post to the cake and cupcakes, don’t worry). by party time, it was a little saggy.
then, i had a little wand making craft, involving hot glue and a lot of grownup assistance. but, i think it went well, and the girls assembled for a group wand pic. hazel/rapunzel was not interested in photo ops.
when we received the text that our princess(es) arrived, we rushed out to the step. we hadn’t told our anna that princess anna would also be coming, so she was so surprised and excited. (a couple of days ago, the princess party people called and asked if i would mind if they sent a free princess-anna-in-training. um. duh. no.)
the princess hugged anna goodbye and headed back to arendelle. we ate a lot of cake and doritos and drank a lot of blue koolaid. and surprisingly, my carpet gained no blue stains.
anyhow. it was the best party ever and i hope anna can remember it forever, because i don’t think she will ever have a better one. 🙂
we were super pleased with the princesses. they were so great with the kiddos and it was definitely worth it. we got them from the party crew in greensboro.\
and that’s the tale of the epic anna and elsa super frozen wonderland birthday party.
