As most young girls these days are, Charlotte is in love with the new Disney movie Frozen. So it was no surprise when she requested a Frozen themed birthday party. I was happy to oblige imagining little girls and sparkly accessories!
We planned her party for a month before her actual birthday in order to avoid having to throw a party with a two week old in attendance. And we reserved the pavilion at the Botanical Garden’s children’s garden for the party. Charlotte just wanted to invite her girl friends from school so I was relieved that it would be a smaller party that I just had to show up for.
Unfortunately, the Sunday of her party dawned rainy with a dismal forecast. By noon we had made the decision to have the party at our house and we were frantically straightening our house up enough to host the party. It turned out to be the right decision since party time found us in the midst of a severe thunderstorm. We weren’t going to let the rain dampen Charlotte’s day though and, thankfully, Charlotte chose to look on the bright side of moving her party and was excited about showing her friends her house.
And Charlotte checked out her Elsa cake.
We were blessed to have lots of family come to the party as well as some of Charlotte’s friends from school. Unfortunately I didn’t get pictures with anyone else but here’s the birthday girl with Memma and Papa.
Charlotte and her friends enjoyed a fun party of making ice bracelets, decorating crowns, coloring Frozen pages, and having some fun snacks and cake. Charlotte had a wonderful time celebrating her fifth birthday and we were so glad to get to celebrate with her!
PS Details about the party are coming up in the next few days!
