Ellie's Frozen Birthday Party

Ellie had been anxiously anticipating her Frozen birthday party for almost a year! She was so excited when it worked out that we got to celebrate in frozen Utah with snow all around! We rented out the ice rink at Station Park in Farmington and had lots of cousins, grandparents, family and friends there to help Ellie celebrate her special day. Year five is starting out pretty good for this little chica.
Ellie excitedly waiting to greet her party guests.
So much fun learning to ice skate together
Snowflake cookies and sugar iced cake
I loved having the snow-covered mountains mountains in the background of the cake table next to the ice rink.
So much fun going around and around again
FIVE candles, can you believe it?!
Ana, Olaf and Elsa cupcakes // skating with daddy
Blowing out the candles...which we were lucky even stayed lit for a split second to blow out finally. Ellie was a good sport.
I made all the snowflake cookies and chocolate oreos in Miami and packed them in a carry on to Utah. Some people say I'm crazy, I say genius.

I love that the fountains were shooting up constantly right behind us

I was gong for a more simple but elegant look on the cake. Ellie just loved that it was covered in sugar rock candy.
Slightly different angles
