When my daughter came to me last summer and told me that all she wanted for her birthday was to meet Princess Elsa, I knew that her birthday was going to be extra special this year. Not only did she want to meet the famous princess of Arendelle, but she also wanted to have tea with her.
What could be more special than that?
So for her birthday celebration, we hosted an ice princess birthday party. It was a tea party complete with fine china tea cups, beautiful princess dresses and treats fit for all royalty.
Although we hosted this event in the summer, an ice princess birthday party is also a perfect idea for a winter birthday party. Dressing up with your friends to share a cup of tea and slice of cake is a beautiful way to celebrate.
What Makes an Ice Princess Birthday Theme Different than just a Princess Birthday?
The table was set with a white tablecloth and light blue snowflake organza as a table runner to soften the top. I added crystal snowflake confetti to add a touch of winter fun.
Our local bakery made a light blue frosted cake to match the traditional colors of Arendelle. To keep the cake decorating simple, I added fondant snowflakes (affiliate) and a gorgeous handmade paper snowflake topper (affiliate). It had a pretty glitter snowflake in the center.
Unfortunately, the snowflake topper that I used is no longer made by the artist. I have linked to another one that is pretty and would also match this ice princess tea party theme.
The cupcakes were also topped with the fondant snowflakes and ice princess colored sprinkles (affiliate). I used cupcake wrappers from our ice princess tea party collection.
Each table setting had a fine china tea cup for hot chocolate – the princess’ beverage of choice. I found a set of tea cups and saucers at our local thrift store. They were priced just right so you weren’t concerned if one broke. The little guests loved drinking out of a “real” cup. It made them feel very grown-up.
These gorgeous cookies were made by Creating Awesomenessity and couldn’t be more enchanting. Katherine really did an amazing job combining my vision of royal tea party into a sweet treat.
Since it was a tea party, I focused on making bite sized treats. I made mini meringues, snow powdered donuts, snowflake brownies, snowflake jelly tea sandwiches and white chocolate covered strawberries. I also served snowflake chocolate covered Oreos (affiliate).
Each royal guest had a handmade ice princess party hat on their place setting make them true princesses. They loved wearing them throughout the tea party and when Princess Elsa visited.
Since we served hot chocolate at our tea party, we sent guests home with hot chocolate tubes (also known as Olaf soup) to make their hot cocoas own at home. I filled clear candy tubes (affiliate) with hot cocoa mix and mini marshmallows. Then, I attached a simple poem so they could make the hot chocolate at home.
Just because I know littles love to dive into the favor on the way home, I also included some ice princess gummy snacks (affiliate) to enjoy on the ride home. This gave them a snack in case they got stuck in traffic. (Living outside of Washington, DC, this is always a possibility.)
It was so much fun creating this ice princess birthday party for my daughter’s celebration. The guests loved having a royal tea party together and I loved making her vision come to life.
