A Frozen Winter Birthday Party and Free Printables

She’s 7! Here is my last minute “winter” party we put together for Boo’s birthday last weekend. It turned out better than I thought it would for the late start I got!

The background I made using burlap. The snowflakes I cut out of a large roll of drawing paper….as well as the popsicle stick snowflakes:

I made the t-shirts at the last minute…Mr. LBB is always a good sport wearing his:

I made the banner in the background so that it can be reused over and over for different purposes. I cut little flags, folded the edges and sewed them over the jute string so that they slide along it.  I cut out the letters from white cardstock.  To make it easy I just spray painted staples white and stapled the letters to the flag…and removed them after the party!

Ok I thought this was a little disturbing but Boo loved the idea of serving “Melted Snowman” instead of water:

Cute snowman string cheese.  I found the idea at No Biggie.  I cut little scarves out of fabric using a rotary cutter and the faces and buttons were drawn with orange and black Sharpie.  The hats are just black construction paper that I taped on using double sided tape:

Styrofoam balls made “snowballs”….these were a hit with the kids playing in the yard:

I made a ton of these snowflakes one night for the decor:

They were easy to make using regular popsicle sticks and wood glue.  I just used a wood circle as the center and used scissors to cut the “mitre” edges.  I used parchment paper to create them on so that they wouldn’t stick.

I went with an easy “non-mess” craft activity.  Everything fit into a cardboard box that I printed with the same snowflake that I used for the shirts:

Inside each box was a chalkboard letter and instructions on how to draw a snowflake:

I got the letters from Michael’s and spray painted them with Chalkboard paint. I created the little “how to draw a snowflake” and printed it on kraft colored cardstock.  I used a razor blade to cut the slits for the chalk. Everything fit nicely in the box:

Boo might be the pickiest kid on the planet when it comes to food….which makes the cake easy: plain vanilla cupcakes.

    Love what you did with this theme! Looks like Sienna and her friends all enjoyed themselves. Great idea with the chalkboard letters and snowflake instructions! We’ve got lots of snow here in New Jersey today, my town came in on top so far with 15″! I’d send you some, but they’d truly be melted snowmen by the time they got there :)

    This is an amazing party! I love all of your ideas. The melted snowman is great! :) Poor Olaf!

    Adorable party… but what has me is that Boo is 7. That means I’ve been reading your blog for *attempt at math* a LONG time. Boo is a few months younger than my oldest daughter. I stumbled upon your blog YEARS ago, pausing because our girls looked a lot alike. (it was the curly hair) I’ve been reading your blog ever since. A lot has happened on this blog over the past 5 years. (I’m trying to put a # on it. It’s possibly even longer than that.) (Please don’t tell me you’ve only been blogging for 2.) ;) You are a talented artist, and I enjoy your DIY and various projects. Even more I enjoy that you are a real blogger. I mean, you are open, you lay it all out there. Many times I leave your blog and I’ve really got some thinking and praying to do. (That’s a good thing.)
    Anyway, whew! Didn’t mean to turn this into a crazy lady comment.
