Frozen parties here to stay

The magic of Frozen is more than a hit billion-dollar movie. Its longevity has almost taken it to that rare stratospheric status of Children’s Classic. Loosely based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairytale The Snow Queen, it was Disney-fied with a cast of quirky, feisty characters and memorable songs. The enduring power of Frozen has turned it into a party phenomenon long after its box office run. Young children love stories and movies which allow their imaginations to run wild.

The film tells the story of fearless Princess Anna who sets off on an epic journey alongside a rugged, thrill-seeking mountain man, his loyal pet reindeer, and a hapless snowman to find her estranged sister Snow Queen Elsa, whose icy powers have inadvertently trapped the kingdom in eternal winter, and break the spell. Part of the film’s attraction is its realistic shots, particularly the heavy snow and its interactions with the characters. The snow comes “alive”, in a sense.

When we first started writing about Frozen, almost none of these pretty party supplies were around. Now, there’s everything you can think of, from the Disney Frozen Party Game to Frozen Invitations, to balloons, table covers, plates, souvenir party cups and personal accessories. And they show no sign of waning in popularity.

A quick glance on Pinterest reveals hundreds of Frozen party themes and birthday candy buffets. We love these vanilla mousse desserts using pale blue fairy floss on top, and the astounding birthday cake. Such attention to detail!

Lollies for a Frozen inspired candy buffet naturally include marshmallows of all sizes and shapes. Apart from candy floss, it’s the lolly that most easily reminds us of pillowy snow. And a marshmallow monster!

Rock candy crystal sticks are another lolly with instant pizzazz for the theme. They look exactly like glittering icicles.

Add some White Vanilla Clouds and Purple Grape Clouds and Blue Berry Clouds. Their sugar coating makes them glisten like snow and ice.

A Pink Candy Buffet Fitting for Two Little Princesses

Pink Candy Buffet
Pink Candy Buffet

Today we bring you something glorious: a deliciously pink candy buffet created by one of our customers, Vicki. We love that every element on the candy buffet table is so lovingly thought out. These two little girls celebrating their birthday must have been pleased as punch. Pink lemonade, red velvet cupcakes, squishy marshmallows and two exquisite matching ombre birthday cakes.

What was the occasion you were celebrating?

We were celebrating Elena’s 1st and Leila’s 4th birthdays. Although the girls are 3 years apart, their birthdays are 13 days apart, so it made sense to have a joint party.

Where did you have the candy buffet?

The candy buffet was held at our home in Randwick.

What was the theme or colour scheme you chose for your candy buffet?

We chose the colour ‘pink’ for our candy buffet as we were having a ‘pink’ coloured party. We decorated our house with pink balloons and pink pom-poms, we served food in pink plates, used pink serviettes, drank out of pink cups and the kids sat in pink chairs. We even painted pink images on our white wall behind the candy table. We also asked our guests to wear something pink.

Which were your favourite lollies?

Our favourite lollies were the pink M&Ms and they were eaten by the handful!

What did you like most about the candy bar?

The candy bar was great fun to plan and put together and seeing the finished product was most satisfying. The impact of the candy bar was that it was a stand out feature of the party, as it attracted a lot of attention and interest. The best part was sharing the candy by distributing it in pink lolly bags for all to take home and enjoy!

Ninja Turtles candy bar for a boy’s birthday

Leo, Mikey, Raph and Donny would have been thrilled with the result when Tammy from Teeps Treats yielded her turtle power at Jai’s fifth birthday party.

What was the occasion you were celebrating?

A boy’s fifth birthday party for our little friend Jai.

Where did you have the Ninja Turtles candy bar for a boy’s birthday?

The party was in the back yard at Wyee on the Central Coast. All the lollies were from Candy Bar Sydney. All cakes, cookies and jelly cups were made by Teeps Treats.

What was the theme or colour scheme you chose for your candy bar?

We set about creating a Ninja-inspired sewer look for the party table, but also needed to keep it fun and interesting for the partygoers. We used plumbing fittings from Bunnings as well as conduit and conduit fittings from TLE Electrical Wholesalers. These were spray painted silver and using a load of hot glue we layered it oozing out of the pipes and painted it with green acrylic paint to create the slime effect.

Which were your favourite lollies?

We can’t go past Candy Bar Sydney’s new Swirl Lollipops. They are a great price for kids parties and have that WOW factor.

What did you like most about the candy bar?

There were so many things to love about this set-up. From the ferris wheel to the sewer slime jelly buckets and the lollipops coming out of the top of the turtles’ heads.

But the part that I loved the most was creating the sewer slime cupcakes.

We melted Green Apple Gummi Bears and topped the cupcakes with them and placed them under the sewer pipes. We even had to explain to Jai that it wasn’t real as he was worried that his friends would have to eat slime!

 Happy Birthday, Jai!

Tiarna’s Frozen candy buffet

A touch of spring in Frozen

Frozen needs no introduction, and kids continue to yearn for Frozen themed birthday parties, candy buffets, and dress up occasions. Tammy from Teeps Treats shows us how she created this magical candy bar for Tiarna’s birthday party.

What was the occasion you were celebrating?

A birthday party in a backyard on the Central Coast for a young girl that loves Frozen, especially Olaf. Creating this party was as much fun for me as it was for the birthday girl.

What were the challenges?

The hardest thing about a Frozen buffet is not going overboard. There are so many fun creative things you can do with it I found it really hard to hold myself back. All our lollies came from Candy Bar Sydney. The cake and all other treats are by Teeps Treats.

The most important part of this candy buffet was to make sure Olaf was front and centre. So I started creating the buffet around him on a stand in the centre adding party favours made from push pop containers filled with blue fizzoes and silver tiaras hot glued to them.

It wouldn’t be a Frozen buffet without rock candy crystal sticks. Adding rock candy crystal sticks on top of blue shimmer sixlets is just perfect for a Frozen theme.

White chocolate frogs and blue shimmer gumballs

I love to add chocolate frogs to any princess inspired buffet because every princess needs to kiss a few frogs to find her prince! Here, white chocolate frogs are teamed up with powder blue shimmer gum balls. Adding snowflakes cut from glitter card stock and blue fairy floss gave our buffet more of a snowy look to it and white painted tree branches helped as well.

Adding glitter to wooden letters, we created our birthday girl’s name. We used wadding from Lincraft to create a dripping snow effect from the riser and added figures of the Frozen characters.

Here’s Olaf front and centre again. We had a acrylic cake topper cut and glittered it ourselves for the top of the cake. I handmade Olaf from gum paste and added ruffles to the cake.

I wanted the cupcakes to look like icebergs, so I topped them with melted beary blue raspberry gummi bears and crushed rock candy crystal sticks.

It all looks absolutely Frozen fabulous, Tammy!
