July 2017, when I gave birth to my sweet little girl. Time really flies so fast! I just can’t still believe that she’s already 3 years old. We celebrated her 3rd birthday in a very simple way and with limited guests. Actually, though it was her third birthday, it was the second celebration that I came up with a theme. The first was on during her 1st birthday celebration which is Hello Kitty Theme, this time a Frozen Themed Birthday since she loves the gang of Frozen movie especially Elsa and Olaf.
So, with great delight, I am sharing below Venice Frozen Themed Birthday Celebration plus a Do-It-Yourself Photo Frame.
The Cake and Cupcakes
GT Delight’s Cakes & Pastries Shop was the pâtissière behind Venice amazingly beautiful and tasty Frozen Cake and Cup Cakes. It’s a chocolatey moist cake with mixed frosting – fondant for the sides of the cake. Instead of making all the toppers edible, only the snowflakes, white and blue tree and the caste post are edible, I bought Frozen Gang toys via an online shop so that my little miss can play with them. I so love it, all are perfectly decorated and baked. It was totally a real combination work of love and art.
I strongly suggest you order at GT Delight’s Cakes & Pastries Shop, the price is reasonably affordable.
To match with the birthday theme, I decided to let Venice wore her Elsa inspired gown that I bought online. I made an inspired Frozen Hairbows for her hair accessories. She totally a princess on her special day.
It was only an intimate home celebration where visitors are family, friends and most are kids from the village block. Served home-cooked food except for yum burgers which we bought from the country’s top food chain. A simple set-up yet, worked out of love especially by mom-in-law’s effort on the table skirting and cooking of foods served.
Last but not the least, is my DIY photo frame. Below is an easy tutorial on how to make Do It Yourself Birthday Photo Frame for the photoshoot.
DIY Photo Frame Tutorial
- Used Cardboard
- Glue gun and stick
- Bond paper
- Glitter paper
- Printed Decorations
First Step – Make four pieces rectangle-shaped out of used cardboard for the frame base. Feel free to decide the size of your frame. Slant cut every edge of the cardboard and connects each other using glue to make a base frame.
Second Step – Since it is used cardboard, wrapped it with bond paper or decorative sticker to look better. You may decide whatever color you wish to cover depending on your picture frame theme.
Third Step – Decorate it with embellishments matching to your birthday theme. For this project, I cut out the frozen photo from a candy wrapper (recycling is great for this kind of project). I use glittered foam for the letters and printed Olaf and the gang photos.
That’s it! You can now strike a pose with your family.
