Minnie Mouse Birthday Party

On Saturday I threw a Minnie Mouse Birthday Party!

Desert Table - 
Minnie Mouse cupcakes 
Marshmallow pops
Red and white lollipops
Red velvet cake
Hugs cookies
Chocolate dipped Oreos
Pop Shop soda
Red Vines
Red Punch

The cookies were sugar cookies I dyed red and rolled in red sugar. When they were still warm from the over I pushed a Hershey's Kiss in the middle. I also dipped Oreos in red chocolate - they were to die for.

I made the centerpiece by yarn wrapping a cardboard heart and put a black Minnie head in the middle!

The popcorn was coated in white chocolate and had Mickey Mouse sprinkles on it.

Mike and Ikes (the birthday girls favorite candy) in the custom thank you bags.

I followed Martha Stewart's direction for making tissue paper balls - can't go wrong with Martha! I will note that the smaller balls turned out better, if I had to make these again I would use extra paper in the larger ones. I used craft foam and scrapbook paper to make the hanging Minnie heads.

The punch was sooo good! It was red Koolaid, gingerale, and pineapple juice.

The cupcakes turned out so cute! I was lucky enough to find polka dot cupcake liners locally, but they are easy to find online. These were white cake with white frosting. I separated Oreos to just use the cookies as ears. For the bows, I used Fruit-by-the-Foot, it's sticky enough just to wrap on itself in the shape of a bow. I used organic strawberry so the color wasn't as bright, but they tasted great!

I made a custom stamp to personalize the napkins.

I photoshopped Minnie ears on pictures of the birthday girl and spelled her name with them.

The plates were made by gluing a big plate to two small plates and adding a paper bow.

I cut all the triangles and Minnie heads by hand. I really wish I had a Cricut! After I had all them cut, I stapled them to a long piece of yarn. This was probably my favorite decoration!

Paper straws with flags. I ordered the straws on Amazon, then I cut a bunch of small triangles, wrote the birthday girl's name on them and used invisible tape to attach them.

I used a extra piece of scrapbook paper inside of a mason jar to make a festive silverware holder.

Cheese in the shape of Mickey Mouse heads! I ordered a small cookie cutter on Ebay, had the Deli slice the cheese thinly and then cut them out - these were a big hit!

Veggie cups! The perfect way to portion.

Yarn wrapped number 2! I had my husband cut the number out of a piece of cardboard, and then just wrapped it with yarn. I added the Minnie head and flowers to make it more girly. 

I made the cake toppers by cutting out the shapes and letters from scrapbook paper and taping them to lollipop sticks. 

To make the ears, I cut out circles of craft foam, cut them to fit on on the headbands and then got glued them. I added big ribbon bows to make them Minnie!

The cake was red velvet with white frosting. I decorated it with Oreos around the middle and raspberry gummies around the bottom.

I made the pinata out of cardboard and tissue paper. It was opened by pulling strings - much safer for the younger kids!

I wish I had taken a better picture of the sign to the party, but I only got when when I left.
I made the head out of black foam core and the arrow with red poster board.
There were balloons attached too, but it was too windy to get a good picture.

Our invitations!
I designed these on my computer, you can find the Disney font free online.
Then I added a ribbon bow and lined the envelopes with polka dot scrapbook paper.
Everyone loved them!

  2. Oh my these are all adorable! I was confused between Minnie and Hello Kitty but both are fine for a little girls party since they are pinkish. But seeing your helpful Minnie Mouse birthday party ideas , I think I'm gonna suggest this to my friends!
