Our Disney Side Frozen Celebration Party #DisneySide

Disclosure:  I was given the opportunity to host a Disney Side @Home Celebration from Disney Parks and Mom Select.  I received complimentary products to host the party as well.  As always, my opinions are my own.
Woohoo!!  You know I was SOOOOO excited to get selected out of tons and tons of applicants to host a Disney Side @Home Celebration Party.  We had an amazing Frozen party with moms, dads and kids all joining in on the fun time. All of the kids have seen Frozen at this point and it is one of their Disney top picks for movies.  We had so much snow here in the the mid-Atlantic it was a real challenge to HAVE our pathetic but I had to change the date a few times because of snow---ugh.  But perfect for a Frozen theme!  Everyone was practically racing in the door since all the kids knew about the party for a while....they were so happy to get to be a part of it since it had been rescheduled twice.  It was a happy Disney Side day in my home on Sunday.
It has been so chilly here in the mid-Atlantic that we had to have the party inside though I was hoping the kids would be able to run around outside more.  At this point, I am just happy it didn't snow out my party again so it was fine. We have plenty of room in our home and Mom Select and Disney sent us tons of fun to make it easy to have a fantastic party inside or out!  It was festive though and the supplies I was sent made the party easy too.  I baked up a bunch of tiny cookies during one of the snow days and then plattered them right up.  These are always a huge hit and their tiny size makes them absolutely a good way!  I also baked some regular size chocolate chip cookies. Just before the party I put a small scoop of vanilla or chocolate frozen yogurt in between two of the cookies and put them on another platter and froze them.  I almost forgot about my Frozen Ice Cream Sandwich Cookies but thank goodness I remembered before everyone left.

What was included in the kit to make my party a super hit?  All the lucky hosts including me got an amazing kit containing Disney themed party favors, decorations, games, activities and recipe ideas. Everything was packed right into this perfectly sized American Tourister Rollaboard.  It was so adorable and it made things very easy to craft an excellent party at home.  I was actually amazed that the American Tourister Rollaboard suitcase held all of the supplies. It was just about filled up with all kinds of craft ideas and supplies to make an amazing party. I put the suitcase out with the tee shirts in it and fabric markers to remind everyone about planning a trip to one of the Disney resorts soon whether they choose Cali or Florida....the fun is always there for every family no matter how large or small.  One of our friends just came back from Disney World two weeks ago so the kids were giving us the latest updates during the party too. 

The kids loved all the extras in the party packet and had fun applying the Donald Duck tattoos on one another and also adorable Disney stickers.  In between they sipped on my Frozen Pink Punch.  So easy to make with Lemonade, Sprite and a few scoops of vanilla frozen yogurt.  I picked up some decorative straws and it just looked fantastic in these tall, clear cups.  Very grownup too.

One of the highlights of the party was the tee shirts from Hanes.  We received a stack of excellent quality tees in the perfect size for the kids.  Fabric markers were tucked in there too. The kids had tons of fun crafting their own tee shirts from Frozen scenes and characters including Olaf who was a big fave.  The kids used printouts I had made ahead of time and placed them under the tees to copy the outlines.  Some of the guests were so good that they were able to color freehand with the fabric markers and create their own Frozen scenes.  The kids enjoyed taking candids with the tees on and I used the HP photo paper that was provided in my kit to print out the photos.  The kids were so excited to go home with cool pictures wearing their own creations! 
It was such a joy to personalize our Disney @Home celebration and make it just our own. I was amazed at how appropriate the Frozen Disney @Home celebration was with the crazy winter we had.  The moms and dads were all laughing when we realized that....jeez, we had spent our own whole winter practically frozen here less than an hour from New York City....definitely not our usual mild winter.  Disney @Home gave everyone (kids and adults) the opportunity to get out of the house and catch up with one another over some yummy treats like my Frozen Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches. You can share in the fun and get some ideas for your own party by checking out the Disney Side Celebration website and Babble.
