Disney Side @Home Celebration ~ Mickey Party!

I received free products in order to host the Disney Side @Home Celebration through Disney Parks and Mom Select.  The opinions expressed here are my own.

Disney is a big part of our life, and so we were very excited when Disney sent us a wonderful package full of lots of fun-filled party goods.  What is a Disney Side party?  Maybe your family has been to Disney.  Or watches Disney movies.  Perhaps you have a favorite Disney character.  There are so many ways you may have a Disney Side!  We celebrated our Disney Side with several celebrations, a boy’s birthday party and a girl’s celebration.

We love having fun with decorations.  Red, blue, and yellow balloons were perfect for a Mickey theme, and the kids were had fun playing with the balloons and then taking some home after the party.  We also used combinations of red and yellow crepe paper.

Mickey Balloons

We also love these decorative spirals.  We used the ones we were sent, but also purchased some more – they are economical, fold flat, are easy to hang, and don’t take up space.

Mickey Decorations

I had to share this photo from my daughter’s 3rd birthday last year, when we had a Minnie Mouse theme.  She was absolutely thrilled with her theme and her cake, especially the keepsake toys on top!  A year later, she still plays with Mickey and Minnie and it is a great way to remember her birthday.  This is something good to keep in mind for cupcakes or cake – you can purchase toppers that can be used as keepsakes.

My friend made this amazing Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cake for this birthday party (for a 4-year-old).  The recipe was a family favorite homemade chocolate cake (super moist and light) with a pudding/coolwhip frosting and filling.  The Mickey Mouse Clubhouse was made out of rice krispie treats covered with fondant, and the final decorations and writing with homemade buttercream frosting.  The Mickey, Donald, Goofy and Minnie figurines used as toppers were purchased from Amazon.com.

Mickey Mouse Cake

We used a Wilton Mickey Mouse cookie cutter to make a variety of party foods, including a variety of sandwiches – cheese, cucumber cream cheese, jelly, and more.  You could really make a variety of foods in Mickey-themed shapes, from cookies to cheese platters.  The kids really love these fun foods!  Another fun idea is make sugar cookies with these cookie cutters, and then have the kids decorate them.

The kids (and adults too!) had fun putting on a variety of Mickey-themed tattoos.  In addition to the ones that Disney provided, we found more packs of Minnie tattoos (from Michael’s Craft Store).

Mickey Mouse Donald Duck Tattoos

One of the activities the older girls enjoyed were making Minnie Mouse “Bow-tique” Bracelets using a rubberband loom.  The bows were easy enough to make and you can really make any color bow and band combination.

You can check out the tutorial for the bow here on the Made By Mommy YouTube channel, which we modified to have a longer “headband” to create the bracelet.  Simply make the headband part as long as you want to fit on your child’s wrist (for us, it only required a few extra segments).

The girls enjoyed lots of cute decorations too, including Minnie and other characters.  We also used bright pink balloons with white polkadots, and combined white and pink streamers.

The kids all got their own Mickey or Minnie ears to wear.  With the kids running around and having so much fun, this was the best I could do to catch a photo of the ears.  You can make your own (there are lots of online tutorials) or you can buy them in stores (like Party City or Walmart).

Disney sent us a supply of HP Photo Paper, so the kids used our iPad’s Minnie Bow Maker app from iTunes to create cute photos that we printed out.  The kids had fun making photo creations, and were happy to take home a photo to remember the party.

There are so many great things out there you can use for goodie bags. We used pink bags with black ribbons to tie them shut (simply fold over the tops of the bags, then use a hole punch and make two holes at the top of the bag and tie the ribbon through), but I also thought these cups were adorable!

Mickey Cups

These are the girl’s goodie bags, which were filled with cute theme items, from tattoos (from Michael’s) to stickers (Party City), to candies (peanut-safe Sixlets candies from Party City), and much more.

Mickey Mouse Minnie Favors

There are so many great ways to show your Disney Side and host a celebration of your own.  We had no problems finding Disney products at a variety of stores.

You can find some more information and inspiration at the Disney Side website and the Disney Side Celebrations website.

Over the years our kids have had many Disney theme birthdays, such as Tangled, Minnie, and more, and I look forward to many more!
