My daughter decided on a Frozen party a day after her birthday last year.
I was actually expecting her to change her mind before her party this year, but that was not the case so we decided to go on planning for a Frozen party but put a twist on it, we decided to focus on the coronation theme and colour.
Kimi's favourite character is Anna. Her reason? She believes that Anna was the real hero because she was the one who broke the spell because she chose her sister over saving herself...
We decided to put on Anna prominently on her invites with her skirt as pattern of the lower invites. We used an emboss "K" to complete and personalize each envelopes of her invites.

I am so lucky to have talented friends who readily helped me to make my vision into reality. I wanted to create Olaf with food which I found inspiration in browsing the net. A few days before the party, we decided to create Olaf's arms from melted chocolates...
* Melted Chocolates for Olaf's Arms and Hands
...this chocolate arms were also used for the Kenzo's Olaf cake.
The cake was all thanks to my good friend, Kimmee. She is a chef pastry/ instructor and I was more than excited that she decided to take on this challenge despite her busy schedule. I just gave her the colour and what I hope the cake would be, and she more than surpassed my expectation.
She made use of fondant to create Olaf and recreated the scene from the movie wherein Olaf separated on the song "In Summer", a twist on this particular cake, since Olaf is in Winter attire, to fit the season of the event as well as Kenzo's Olaf toy. I think this playful twist to the cake also fits Kenzo's personality to a T.

As for Kimi's cake, Kimmee decided to make a two tier cake with the Elsa doll on top. Purple hues that matches the invites and the bluish hue of the winter time ties up perfectly to the rest of the decors.

and raspberry cake on the top tier.
For the food, hubby chose the main buffet, we ordered the Sushi and the Barbeques. Grandma Mary did the Hotdogs, Baked Macaroni and Salmon. A friend cooked Chap Chae. Everything was so delicious.
I was the one who decided on the sweet table. Popcorn is a sure hit and Kimi and I put them in small manageable cups for a no mess take home or eat the party treats. We finish off the cups with a logo of Elsa and Anna on the top.
Our friend, Leslie helped me put on the noses and eyes for Olaf and my friend, Kimmee helped me make these Olaf arms.... Love how this yogurt turned out and it was a hit with the kids.
Kisses as one of the candies for the table with silver and blue colour scheme.
I love Ferrero Rocher and just had to find a way to include them in the sweets. It's perfect as the Golden Orb in the Elsa's Coronation scene.
These white pretzels are perfect for Han's Frozen Heart...
Waters were dressed as Elsa and Anna during the coronation night...
Utensils were also done up to complement the whole motif.
We got this plastic Frozen perfect for the door at the nearby dollar store.
