Olaf-Themed Party Ideas

Olaf Frozen Birthday Party Supplies

Planning a party can sometimes be stressful, but our favorite snowman inspires so many fun-filled party ideas, it’ll be easy to get caught-up in the festivities. Olaf would encourage you to let it go, make it your own, and snowball the following ideas into your own memorable party. And, of course, Birthday Express has everything you need!

Invitations – Send out an invite to guests asking, “Would you like to build a snowman?” Then, on the inside, it could read, “Then come join the fun with Olaf and friends at _____’s birthday party! And be sure to bring warm hugs!” You could also make each invite in the shape of a snowflake or include a Felt Snowflake Sticker inside the invite.

Party Decor – With Olaf, you could throw a party with a winter decor or a summer decor since Olaf loves the sun! Definitely get the party started off right with the Disney Olaf Value Party Pack as it contains everything one needs for a party, including plates, cups, napkins, utensils – even balloons and thank- you notes! You could create a “pin the nose on Olaf” game, a “build your own snowman” table with rice crispy treats, and elevate the laughter with an Olaf 3D Pull-String Pinata. Decor can range from blue and white (e.g. lights, streamers, balloons, and snowflakes) to sun, surf, and sand decorations. Be sure to add the Olaf Balloon Bouquet – it’ll definitely give your party a lift.

Food & Drink – Bring together marshmallows, pretzel sticks, black licorice, and baby carrots and you’ve got yourself edible snowmen (no offense to Olaf, of course). Consider making “melted Olaf’s” with greek vanilla yogurt or vanilla pudding cups. You could make blue jello “ice block” jigglers, snowflake cookies, and blue icing-dipped pretzel sticks. For dessert you could have hot chocolate and s’mores, or get an Olaf-themed birthday cake!

Whatever you include in your party, the one thing that Olaf would insist on is that you make it happy and fun – with lots of warm hugs. Shop Disney’s Frozen Olaf Party Supplies now!

Happy Monday & Tuesday

Oh yeah!  What a happy Monday it was and what a Happy Tuesday it is….At least I think so! 😉

Let me explain why I’m so happy….

Firstly, my hubby’s birthday was Monday (9/15)!  The good-looking fella is one year older. 🙂

I believe in getting people what they NEED over what they want if possible.

He was in desperate need of a new phone, so the Samsung Galaxy S5 was his choice.  This phone is too cool!

Secondly….The Dallas Cowboys won their game against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday….26-10! Now that is what I am talking about!  lol  My household is Dallas Cowboys all the way…(just incase you didn’t know)

DC vs TT 9-14-2014

We were all geared up in our DC attire.  Below are a few pics of my son Tre’ and I representing the DALLAS COWBOYS!

 I know what you’re thinking….We’re silly…..And your right…Ha, Ha!

Moving on…..

Thirdly….I have been working out!  I am so proud of myself! 🙂

I just left the Gym and I love it!  I love the way I feel once I’m done.  I feel accomplished.

Those calories burned are well worth it.  My midsection is the hardest to get rid of…Ugghhhh!

Fitclub T-Shirt Review Pic

Wondering what my shirt says??  It reads “Everyday I wake up Flawless”.  Kudos to Beyoncé!

I’ll be doing a product review about this shirt in a later post, so keep an eye out.

I also just won one of these NIKE FUEL BANDS!!  They are super cool and a great addition to my workout.

4th of July Drink Idea (Kids will love it!)

This non-alcoholic drink is sure to please.  It’s pretty to look at and it tastes super yummy.

Red, White and Blue Drink

Classic Patriotic Punch

There are a handful of versions of this recipe that all create beautiful red, blue, and clear layers with non-alcoholic beverages. When you’re making a layered drink, the key is to use drinks with different amounts of sugar. Drinks with more sugar are more dense than those with less sugar, which allows the layers to “stack” on top of each other.

All of these punch recipes use some variation of the following beverages:

  • Red Fruit Punch or Juice (i.e. Cranberry Juice)
  • Blue Gatorade
  • Diet 7-Up, Sprite, or any other clear soda

Please note:  It is important to use a diet or sugar free soda so that at least one of your layers has little or no sugar.   Pour the beverage with the most sugar first (so that it’s on the bottom) and the beverage with the least sugar last (so that it’s on the top).

Pour equal amounts of all of the beverages to create a colorful, layered glass or pitcher.

If you choose to add ice, the best time to add it is after you’ve added the second layer and before you’ve added the third layer.

Not feeling the Big Pitcher, you can use cups as well….

Will you try this at your 4th of July gathering this year or have you previously??  Let me know and comment below.
