One year after a trip to Disneyland my daughter wanted a Minnie Mouse party for her 6th birthday party.
To start with, I'll tell you that this was one of my favorite parties
of all time. And I had to start from scratch - at that time I couldn't find
any kid party ideas that related to Minnie Mouse in my online searched.
also couldn't find any party merchandise that was in Minnie's red and
white polka dot colors, so we did everything in red, black and white.
Streamers, balloons, and lots of them. (I love those color combinations
I found some red fabric with white polka dots - just like Minnie's dress! It was perfect for the cake and gift table.
I found this great Minnie Mouse Pinata at a local pinata store, but after playing with it and having tea parties with it in the weeks leading up to the party we just couldn't bear to break her open! So she became a party decoration instead, and we made a pinata (keep scrolling to see it!)
For invitations, I used black card stock and cut out the mouse head and ear shape and added a red and white polka dot bow on top. On the back of the invitation I glued on the party details printed on white paper.
For a cake we had a red round cake and covered it with large white polka dots. It was so cute!
For favors we gave Minnie Mouse bean bag type dolls (although any Minnie Mouse item could do!) I found them on clearance at the Disney store.
As each guest arrived they crawled thru a "mouse hole" (hole in a cardboard box) to get to the party area. They were turned into mice by given a “mouse ears” headband. These were made by covering a headband with black grosgrain ribbon and hotgluing two black craft foam mouse ear shapes to the top of the headband. Between the ears was a red and white polka dot ribbon.
Balloon game - try to keep a red, white or black balloon in the air.
The birthday girl LOVED her Minnie Mouse birthday cake!
