What little girl doesn’t love Minnie Mouse? Walt Disney’s polka-dot wearing character stands the test of time, especially as a birthday theme.
If you’re throwing a Minnie Mouse party, use these five ideas for a fabulous extravaganza your little one will never forget:
1. A Dessert Table Showstopper
Let’s not forget how much kids love to eat; keep the snack table the focal point of your party.
Include Minnie-themed table covers, a coordinating cupcake stand for mini-desserts, and themed back-hanging decorations like a curtain or danglers. Don’t forget utensils, napkins, plates, and cups.
Still, the cake needs to steal the stage. Polka dots, big ears, and a big bow come naturally with any Minnie cake.
Whether you’re doing the baking or you’re buying a special cake, little touches take things above and beyond.
If making cupcakes, let your crafty mind go wild. Consider inserting Minnie key rings into a red or pink polka dot frosting. Another fun project involves halving Oreos for ears and putting a little frosting bow in between them.
These cupcakes look great displayed on a Minnie-inspired bow-tique cupcake stand that doubles as a table centerpiece. Customize the cupcakes with personalized birthday wrappers.
2. A Mouse Ensemble for All
Give every guest the Minnie Mouse treatment. Make the birthday girl feel special with a full Minnie costume while the guests enjoy little touches of the first diva of Disneyland.
Accessories like mouse ear headbands and polka dot bows transform everyone into a little mouse. Have guests enter through a “mouse-hole” and hand them the ears once through.
3. Photos with Minnie Mouse Balloons
It wouldn’t be a birthday party without balloons! Make a photo-op moment with a life-sized balloon and standee.
4. Minnie Mouse Themed Games
Keep your little mice entertained with Minnie Mouse themed activities and games. Face paint, glitter tattoos, or Minnie manicures bring squeaks of excitement!
Continue the mouse fun by including parents with a bow-making section, offering various polka dot ribbons from which to choose. Or, dress Minnie paper dolls with fun accessories.
Set the little mice scurrying with a revamp of the Easter egg hunt by placing blocks of “cheese” around a room. For a bit of competition, print numbers on polka dot paper and start a Bingo tournament.
Don’t forget the Minnie piñata! A safer alternative for toddlers, the little mice will love pulling the string-style piñata for the surprise goodies. Plus, they can take the treats home in their favor bags.
5. Minnie-Approved Take-Home Favors
Don’t limit baggies to candy loot and Bingo winnings.
Impress your child and friends alike with your decorating and party-throwing skills. There are a million more ideas to consider, but with these five alone, expect a real crowd-pleaser.
