Olaf's Summer Luau | Birthday Party Ideas (part 1)

August 20, 2015

Olaf is a favorite character, with my two youngest boys. What's not to love about the 'warm hugs-lovin' guy?! Both of my boys have Summer birthdays, and it just made sense to have an Olaf Summer Luau, to celebrate their 2nd & 5th Birthdays!

I have many pictures + details to share, so I've put everything into 2 posts.


One of my favorite things to do at any event I put together, is to create a party table for the younger party guests to sit at. It's so fun to watch all the kids snack, and talk about anything under the sun! 

I found some Olaf themed fabric from JoAnn fabrics, and used it as a table cover. Instead of renting a kid-sized table, I bought 3 square tables from Ikea, and put them together. They were the perfect height, for all the little guests.



Arlene from She Wears the Crown created darling Luau & Olaf themed cookies. I love how she made a number 2, and a number 5, for my birthday boys!




I created a faux cake, adorned with orange festooning, from Celebration Lane, wrapping paper, and a tiki cake topper. 

The party cupcakes looked super delicious with Olaf & Luau themed cupcake toppers from Michelle's Party Plan-it, and fun cupcake wrappers from Hoopla Events!

She Wears the Crown did such a great job on this fondant Olaf. He definitely set the tone for our Summer Luau!


I've worked with Nicole from Bella's Bakery, for a few years now. Her work always amazes me! Here she made the cutest Olaf & Luau themed cake pops for our party. Pineapples, Olaf, a tiki man, and pretty hibiscus flowers were displayed inside a pail, and set out on the kid's party table. 

I decorated mini white gable boxes, and white take-out boxes, with luau themed printables, festooning, and raffia. 


I fell in love when I saw these darling bamboo paper straws, from Oriental Trading. I added some pom-pom ribbon to our orange & glitter mason jar, from Just Add Glitter By Marla.

Bella's Bakery also created the most darling Olaf & Luau themed caramel + chocolate dipped apples! They coordinated perfectly with the cake pops, and were gobbled up super fast!

Fish crackers inside of push-up pop containers made it easy for our little guests to help themselves to a quick snack, after playing in the water.




I knew that July would be hot, so we planned for an outdoor party, that would include lots of water fun! The kids had a blast getting wet.



The dessert table was one of my favorite areas of the party. The bright colors of the backdrop & "Aloha" banner, from Michelle's Party Plan-It, the paper fans, and yummy desserts, were just waiting for our guests to enjoy!

I used a few of the cookies from She Wears The Crown, as cupcake toppers. The shade-wearing sunshine cookie was just too cute!

An Olaf Summer Luau isn't complete without an Olaf sno-cone machine! I found this guy a few months back, at Walmart, and knew he had to come home with me. I foudn the perfect color and painted our drink cart with Rustoleum 2x gloss in seaside. So perfect! 

Michelle's Party Plan-It made the perfect signage to display his frozen treats cart. We set out paper cups, and wooden spoons, and the guests were able to help themselves.



Thanks for stopping by to check out our Olaf Summer Luau party, part 1! Our next post will showcase our fun party favor section, a festive tiki bar, + lots more!
