Winterize Your World Wednesday - and Your Spring, and Your Summer, Too Published on March 01, 2016 Are you ready to let it go all over again? 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 keep on so if your little princess desires a Frozen party, you can grant her wish any time of year - even spring and summer - without spending a fortune. Read how Ashley and Jamin Mills, who blog at The Handmade Home, gave their daughter a glorious Frozen birthday party when there were no licensed, approved decorations to be found in the stores! (Mommy might have put it off too long.) Keep in mind, if you love everything Disney, you can still enter to win a Disney cruise plus airfare. Submit your entry in our Unfrozen contest at www.unfrozenwinter.com. Build your greatest snowman and remember, no snow, no trouble. Use anything you can find that inspires you – old tires, belts, 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 pointers are as follows:Let there be icicles. Metallic + white crepe paper = icicles. Hang it high over their heads and add it to the runner, too. This is an exquisite detail for the price of paper.Frozen food. Teal rock candy. Sapphire blue gumballs. Let your food play out your theme. It can act as décor too – blue gumballs in tall glass jars make great decorations. (Add some warmth with this recipe for blue hot chocolate. Just combine some white chocolate, milk, vanilla extract, and blue food coloring. Whipped cream and blue sugar crystals are great for garnish.) A snow-white iced cake also fits right in.Color Carries On. Use colors all over – not just in the food - to enhance your theme. Ashley included pink and purple plates with navy blue napkins wrapped in hot pink, so that every guest had a pinch of the Frozen palette at her place setting. The table runner was blue cloth overlaid with a paper icicle, finished with an open-weave purple cloth.Branching out. Tree branches from the backyard can be spray painted and even “iced” for an inexpensive decoration. (Find out how to “frost” your limbs here.)Olaf Originals. Amusing, edible, AND a party favor? That’s perfect! Learn how to build your own Olaf in minutes with marshmallows + pretzel sticks + mini M&M’s + frosting + candy corn.Karaoke Carry-on. Once fired-up with sugar (!), let your guests compete in a sing-off of “Let it Go.” (Music tracks can be found on YouTube.) Have some ideas of your own? Go ahead and “let it go” and have the “Unfrozen” party your princess’ heart desires!
