~Disney Birthdays: Minnie Mouse Party

19 Mar

What would Disney Fun Month be without a couple of great birthday party ideas?  Today I am so lucky to have Carrie from My Favorite Finds on Sweet Benanna & Sam for a guest post!  Carrie loves Disney (and Starbucks), I think I would get along really well with her 🙂  Carrie threw a Minnie Mouse party for her daughter and here she is to share some of the projects for that party.  At the bottom of this post you will find some more great Minnie party ideas that my friend did for her daughter’s First birthday last spring.My Favorite Finds

Hi everyone! My name is Carrie, and I blog over at My Favorite Finds. On My Favorite Finds, you’ll find tutorials, recipes, organization ideas, and Disney travel tips! I love to share my {FAVORITE} ideas with my readers, and I hope you’ll check it out. I’m addicted to Starbucks, reading, shopping, and my sweet kids and hubby. I’m always looking for a new recipe or craft to fill our bellies or beautify our home. I’m also slightly addicted to planning, and going on, Disney vacations with my family. I love sharing my ideas about Disney planning on my blog AND on Chip & Co. Each week I host Must Try Monday, where you can share your must try recipes with my readers! Come over and join in the fun.

I am so excited to be here today to share my Minnie Mouse party with you. After our trip this past June, it was decided that my daughter’s birthday theme would be Minnie Mouse. I was stoked! I don’t think I’ve had this much fun with planning a party!

So, I wanted to share with you a round up of our party! Many of these were inspired by ideas I had pinned on my Ns Minnie Party Pinterest board. I hope these will give you some ideas when you get ready to plan a Minnie Mouse inspired party!

Of course, my little princess needed a Minnie Mouse tutu! And I had ordered a super cute t-shirt from A Stitch Upon a Star on Etsy. Loved it!

I created these Minnie Mouse centerpieces from some supplies I picked up at the Target Dollar Spot. These were my {FAVORITE} part of the party.

Do you have a Silhouette or Cricut? If so, you can make a Minnie Mouse birthday banner. I used pink and black paper from Michaels. I think I could probably use it again for her future birthdays, because pink and black are classic colors.

Finally, to add a fun touch, I bought some frames from the Dollar Tree. I applied a thin coat of Mod Podge to the edges and glittered them. Inside, I put photos of my daughter with Minnie Mouse from past Disney trips. I love how it added a personal touch to her party decor.

Finally, I made some of these easy Oreo cookies for the party favors. You could even make these into Mickey Mouse as well-just swap the pink melting chocolate for red!

It was a magical party for my daughter-and the decorations were so fun to make!

Thanks, Lisa, for letting me share my Minnie Mouse Birthday Party!

Last Spring one of my good friends also did a Minnie Mouse party for her daughter’s first birthday.  I just wanted to quickly share a couple of her ideas, there were some great ones, and she spent so much time on all of the details!




1.  The decor and the treat bags:  I loved her banner, minnie heads cut from construction paper (and she doesn’t have any fancy craft machines like a Cricut or a Silhouette, this was done by hand).  The letters were all done in pink and then white layered over top, so much effort but it looked awesome!  You will notice that some of her gift bags had bows and the others did not, to distinguish between girl treat bags and boy treat bags.  Inside the gift bags, my friend had made Mickey and Minnie ears for each of the guests!  She used plastic headbands and black felt for the ears.

2.  The dessert table:  Cupcakes, cake pops, and of course, the cake!  Again she put so much time into those great details.  The cupcakes each had a little Mickey head made from chocolate melting wafers.  Oh and they tasted so good – chocolate cheesecake filled with cheesecake frosting.  She made the Minnie cake pop stands out of styrofoam and ribbon.  The cake pops were chocolate pudding covered in…chocolate!   The cake was beautiful, I believe it was her first time experimenting with fondant but you couldn’t tell!  The centre of the cake had a heart baked into it.  So talented!

3. And of course this is my tired little party girl, modeling her Minnie ears!

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed some of these Minnie party ideas!
