Winterize Your World Wednesday - and Your Spring, and Your Summer, Too Published on March 01, 2016 Get excited! Frozen 2 has been announced and will arrive in theaters around 2018. The Frozen fever that has fascinated our children for the past few years will continue so if your little princess is adamant about having a Frozen party, you can grant her wish no matter what time of year - even spring and summer - without taking a toll on your wallet. See how Ashley and Jamin Mills, couple bloggers at The Handmade Home, hosted an enchanting Frozen birthday party for their daughter when there were no licensed, approved party supplies to be found in the stores! (Mama might have put it off too long.) Don’t forget, if you love everything Disney, you can still enter to win a Disney cruise plus airfare.

Use anything you have handy that inspires you – old tires, socks, rubber…we’ve even received some amazing entries made out of food. (Who knew you could make a snowman out of a potato?)Ashley’s party tips are as follows:Let there be icicles. Metallic + white crepe paper = icicles. Over their heads, and in the runner, too. This is a masterpiece for the price of paper.Frozen food. Turquoise rock candy. Icy blue gumballs. Let your food play out your theme. It can be your décor too – blue gumballs in tall glass jars make great decorations. (Add some warmth with this recipe for blue hot chocolate. All it takes is white chocolate, milk, vanilla extract, and blue food coloring. Whipped cream and blue sugar crystals are great to top it off.) A snow-white iced cake is also perfect.Color Carries On. Use colors all over – not just in the food - to enhance your theme. Ashley used purple and pink plates, bearing navy blue napkins tied with hot pink, so that every guest had a dose of the Frozen palette at her plate. The table runner was blue cloth beneath a paper icicle, topped with an open-weave purple cloth.Branching out. Tree limbs from the backyard can be spray painted and even “iced” for an inexpensive detail. (See how to “frost” your limbs here.)Olaf Originals. Amusing, edible, AND a party favor? Count us in! Find out how to create your own Olaf in minutes with marshmallows + pretzel sticks + mini M&M’s + frosting + candy corn.Karaoke Carry-on. Once energized with sugar (!), let your guests enjoy some fun competition in a sing-off of “Let it Go.” (Frozen songs can be found on YouTube.) Got ideas of your own? Don’t be afraid to “let it go” and throw the “Unfrozen” party of the year!
