It’s a Disney Party! #DisneySide

I was recently selected to participated in throwing a Disney party.  I love throwing parties and it doesn’t matter what kind they are.  However, something about a Mickey Mouse Disney party was just right up my alley!   My kids love Disney… well, who doesn’t!   So I threw a party with all the great things that I received from Disney Side Celebrations help.  Plus, I added some of my own that I either made or bought at the store.

When planning any kind of event, first things first…   paper and pen.

  • Who to invite
  • Menu (drinks, appetizers, main food, sweets)
  • Decorations (what do you have, what do you need still)
  • Serving Items (plates, napkins, cups, etc…)
  • Clean-up schedule (create a list of everything that you need to get done before setting up for the party)
  • Invites (whether using fb, Evite, buying invites or making your own)

Ok…  now that you have it all figured out you can start to relax and have fun with the party!  Getting it all organized in the beginning can be a little overwhelming at first when you have it at your home but if you stay organized then you shouldn’t have a problem.  It’s the cleaning up afterwards…  good luck!  🙂  HA!   Can’t help you with that one.  Hmmm…   Babe?

I created this table decor by using my left over Mickey Mouse cupcake wrappers to hold popcorn and cheetos.  Then Mini red ones that were left over from Christmas for banana chips.  The sandwiches were placed on handmade platters that I made by using a black plate and upside down bowl then glued them together with E6000 glue.  I then took a mini watermelon and cut off ends to use as base for watermelon skewers.  Simply by putting toothpicks and cubed watermelon on ends.  The kids just had to pull watermelon off.  Then of course the Mickey Mouse sandwiches…  just making your favorite sandwiches and using a cookie cutter to cut out the shapes.

Activities:  Always having activities for the kids are a must.   So we had Disney Bingo, Craft table (where they colored Disney pages, made super hero masks and made Princess stuff) and also decorated T-Shirts.  They had a blast doing it!

Having designated areas for different activities is nice to keep it all separate.

They all came in some kind of Disney costume.  This is what made it super special for the kids.  The boys could come in their super heroes and the girls come come in a princess costume (of course).  Even some of the adults dressed up.   I had Mickey ears for kids and adults too.  As well as a photo booth!!

Gifts:  And of course what is not a party with out goodie bags!!  I got these bags at the Dollar Tree.   I filled with with Disney tattoos, stickers, decals, craisons, princess things, super hero items, etc…

Each had their name on it.  Girls had girly stuff in it and boys had well, boy stuff in it.  🙂  Plus the things that Disney Celebrations was kind enough to donate to the party.  Here are some of the things….
