Into the unknown…
Venture if you will, through a life sized 3-dimensional balloon castle where just beyond is an incredible Frozen themed party captured silently in anticipation of the excited squeals of 16 children arriving in celebration of Ivy’s 5th birthday.
When Pop the Balloon! Children’s Parties & Events set the stage this is the kind of incredible set-up we have come to expect. Beautiful birthday girl, Ivy, is absolutely in love with all things Frozen and it’s not hard to see why with Frozen 2 continuing the story of two sisters sending them on another epic adventure in search of the source of Elsa’s power.
The epic scenery in Frozen 2, which Rochelle describes as a complete visual feast, threw up so many choices and material to work with that focusing her styling became about choosing moments that captured the magic and beauty of Arendelle, the enchanted forest, and of course Ahtohallan which ultimately provided the concept for the final design.
Emerging through the castle, you are immediately greeted with a backdrop reminiscent of a scene from the movie; a cascading icy waterfall, glistening white trees, sparkling drapes and soft whimsical curtains, all tied in by a streamer wall, fairy lights, and epic balloon garlands in the icy blues, whites and silvers from that snowy setting in Arendelle.
The children’s party table featured the latest offering from Disney’s Frozen 2 partyware with shiny metallics in the plates, souvenir cups and napkins, fun castle party favour bags filled with more of the latest Frozen party favours, mini milk bottles with custom labels and curly blue straws for an added touch of whimsy.
The piece de resistance was a show stopping floral display that artfully drew out more of the icy colour scheme, tempered with pops of fushcia pinks and mauves as a gentle nod to Elsa’s sister, Anna. We are seeing more beautiful floral work appearing in kids parties this season.
More stunning flowers were set next to the backdrop with Olaf, pretty white lanterns and a custom sign welcoming Ivy’s guests to her 5th birthday celebration, set on a gorgeous ornate metal stand.
For dessert the children were treated to Frozen inspired cakesicles, cupcakes, custom chocolates, snowflake cookies, and assorted confectionery. as well as a gorgeous birthday cake that provided the centrepiece to the display plinths; each one set with a silver decal representing the four elements featured in the movie – ‘Air’, ‘Water’, ‘Fire’ and ‘Earth’.
If the styling wasn’t breathtaking enough Pop the Balloon teamed up with Storybook Party Co to create the ultimate entertainment experience with a special character appearance by Elsa. All of this coupled with Pop the Balloon’s fabulous entertainment including hunting for Elsa’s ice crystals, pass the parcel, pin the nose on Olaf, snowball throwing competitions, building a snowman and much, much more!
This was one party that Ivy and her family will never forget. From the moment they arrived at the Frozen balloon castle created by Keen Creations that completely hid the party beyond its walls from view – they knew they were about to be treated to a party experience like no other.
And isn’t that what creating magical children’s party experiences is all about?
