A Frozen Princess Party at Pretend City!

Disclosure: Pretend City sponsored this party for Isabella. All opinions are my own.

I told you a few weeks ago that I was planning a birthday party for Isabella
at Pretend City and I wanted to share about our awesome experience!
It was honestly the easiest birthday party that I have ever thrown.

I was able to arrive at Pretend City a half hour before the party start time to get the room
setup and ready for the party guests to arrive.
However, there wasn't much for me to set up! The tables all had tablecloths on them,
the white board was decorated with a birthday message, and there were cute
beach themed decorations everywhere.

I put out Frozen coloring pages for the girls to color as they arrived,
as well as crayons for them to use.
Isabella insisted that the party was an Elsa Frozen party.
I was worried because Pretend City offers two packages - farm and beach.
I chose beach because that seemed more up Isabella's alley and it fit perfectly,
since Olaf dreams of the beach and summer.
Our party host was awesome and drew us a fabulous Olaf on the white board
and the Pretend City staff put music from Frozen on for the girls to sing along with.

The girls colored their pages as we waited for all the guests to arrive.
And they each made an Elsa crown with their mom to wear and celebrate in.

As the girls finished with their coloring pages, they moved to the craft table
and started making a summer themed craft with the party host.
It was so nice to have someone else lead the activities so that I could take pictures
and enjoy what was going on during the party.
When I've thrown parties on my own I have to be the game leader, the party host,
the food server, the candle lighter and picture taker.
It's quite overwhelming. This was laid back and fantastic!

The party room has an area for food, complete with a fridge and plenty
of counter space for your spread.
I love that you can bring your own food into Party City for birthdays.
So many places that host birthday parties make you use their vendors.
Since we had a Frozen beach theme, we went with Isabella's favorites.
She wanted cheese pizza, powdered donuts and marshmallows (snowman inspired),
carrots (Olaf's nose), strawberries, chips, and fun melted snow water bottles.

After the girls had their fill of the food, it was time for CAKE!!!!!!
Let me tell you that the cake was AMAZING.
It looked amazing and it tasted amazing. My husband is still talking about it.
Isabella chose white cake with strawberry mousse filling.
Um, yum!!!!!
And then the cake is decorated like Pretend City, complete with a map of the city!

I was truly amazed at what this bakery could do with sugar, frosting and cake!
The cake is an additional charge, 
but it is definitely wedding cake amazing in taste and appearance and amazingness.

Isabella loved the cake and it made for a gorgeous photo op with the candles all lit up.
And I was able to capture it because I didn't have to light the candles,
our party host got everything all set up for us - woohoo!!

We ended the party by finishing up giant pieces of cake - seriously, the cake could
probably feed 50+ guests, maybe more!
Then, we took a fun Princess Elsa group picture with all the cute party girls.

Isabella was thrilled with the day and had so much fun with her friends.
She was amazed by the cake and that her party host drew her a fantastic Olaf.

After our time in the party room had come to an end, 
the party host had the girls line up at the door, told them the Pretend City rules,
and gave them their goodie bags, and sent them out into the Museum
to enjoy as much time as they wanted with their adult.

We want to give Pretend City a HUMUNGOUS thank you for such a wonderful party.
It was stress free and enjoyable for all of the party guests.
The girls loved being able to play in the museum after the party room,
and most of them headed to the stage to sing and dance and be girly girls.
They were sad when they had to leave, but I told them the cool thing is that
every guest gets a ticket to return to Pretend City on another day!
