I love celebrating the kid's birthdays with a party and sometimes a follow up dinner with family.
I enjoy the planning and executing, and yes, praise for the job well done. I also have a formula for party planning, be it princess or tornado.
What's fitting for a five year old? A Frozen themed birthday party, of course.
Very similar to the generic princess theme we did last year but different in the sense that it is Elsa and Anna. That is a very important distinction (or so I'm told).
I put more effort into last year's party than probably any other party we've done for the kids and not because it was a princess party but, it was the first party, not in our home, that did not have built in entertainment like jumping on inflatables or trampolines.
This year I planned to make it easy, breezy and take Elsa's advice and "Let It Go." It being any and all expectations.
The Ultimate Cheat Sheet for a Frozen Princess Party (or any party really)
1. LocationMy ideal location is anywhere that is not my house. Sure, I've had two parties at my house for my son and it was fun but I don't feel my house will ever be clean enough for other moms.
I like locations that clean-up and serve. Yes, there is more of a price tag, but it saves me time in the long run that I can enjoy the party. Plus, we have a small house and want the kids to enjoy themselves.

Our choice is the same as last year. Not only does our kids love it, it is a neighborhood staple, but it's cheap to host a party. Plus, ice cream! We just bring the cake.
