Our family was so thrilled to be picked to throw a Disney Side @Home Celebration. party thanks to the Free products I received from Disney Parks and MomSelect. Having just returned from a trip to Disney World with my youngest, our Disney Side was beaming with excitement and ideas. We decided to throw a Mickey Themed Party for some of our Disney loving friends. We stuck with Disney’s Fab 5 crew, something about the tradition of Disney really warms my heart.
Our Mickey themed party began with our Mickey Mouse Invitations we sent to our guests. The majority of our guests were tween girls so the food and the activities were all geared in that direction. My boys were allowed one guest since I wanted to be sure we had some quality interest in the party!!
Most of the party supplies came in our Disney Side @Home Celebration kit but I added some of our own touches. I was not going to spend a lot of money on this party, so I used a lot of things I already had at home or could buy inexpensively
How To Throw a Mickey Mouse Themed Party
I especially love the last-minute Mickey and Minnie Heads I made the morning of the party. I found styro-foam balls in my craft box, painted them with black spray paint and added ears and a bow with toothpicks and black card stock. Attached skewers and added them to a Valentines Day Mosiaic decoration I already had out. The Disney picture in the background came in our party kit and I just put it in a frame I already had.
The party favor bags were also inexpensive and I thought super cute. I used small red bags I found at AC Moore and cut out Mickey ears in black paper and glued it to the bag. We really stuck to the invitation theme.
I set up a Animation station which was supplied in our box courtesy of Hanes. The kids loved making their T-shirts just wish I had more black markers. This project took more time than I expected but as long as they were having a fun time I don’t care. I asked the Disney Trivia questions included in our Celebration box while they were drawing. Parents loved this part too.
The kids could then venture to Goofy’s Photo booth. I made some props as well as used this back drop I used at a Disney Party I had for my kids over 8 years ago. Super easy to make out of a large box and some paint.
Every Mickey Mouse Themed Party needs some fun pics from our Disney Photo Booth. All props were made out of foam. I will be printing out a picture of each guest on our HP Photo Cards and sending them in the mail to extend the Disney Magic.
Next the Mickey Themed Food. This was the most fun part for me. I used some inspiration from Pinterest as well as our recent trip to Disney. The Mickey’s on a stick tutorial can be found here. Also on our Mickey on a Stick platter are the traditional Rice Krispie Mickey Ears dipped in white chocolate.
I made some sugar cookies and made some Royal icing for the decorations. Check out how to decorate Disney Themed cupcakes in accordance to our Mickey Theme.
I made Mickey and Minnie Oreo heads!! I used small and regular sized Oreos and decorated them with left over royal icing. (Be sure and wait to add the Oreos to the cupcakes right before serving or they will get soggy.
Other Mickey Themed food included, Mickey chicken nuggets, Sulley and Mike’s Cheeze-it snacks, Mickey Quesadillas.
Feeling the overload of sugar, I put together this Mickey Mouse Fruit plate. Using 3 bowls, 2 smaller than the other, you can make anything Mickey. A pretty cute idea for a healthy party snack addition to our Mickey Themed food table.
Everyone had a blast and the celebration kit really was such a great mix of things to do. We did not even get to the Disney Bingo game, but I will keep it for another time.
Thanks Disney Parks, HP, Hanes and MomSelect for allowing our family and friends to show off our Disney Side at our Mickey Themed Party!
