Today I’d like to share the photos from the Minnie Mouse birthday party. I enjoyed preparing for this pink & blue party and was excited to see how everything came together for the party. Last year, I did a Mickey Mouse party that is the most popular content on the blog. When preparing for Gwen’s second birthday party I knew Minnie Mouse would be a great theme and I am curious to see Minnie will be as popular as Mickey. I’ll let you know!
Throughout the photos, I’ll link to the previous posts with more details if you’d like to see how I made something. On the front door, I welcomed guests with a birthday bow-tique sign. I tied a bunch of balloons to her high-chair and hung some pom-poms from the ceiling.
I served an assortment of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse foods with food tent signs for added decoration.
Food List: Goofy’s Grapes, Clarabelle’s chips & Dip, Donald’s Dogs, Minnie’s Bow-tie Pasta Salad, Minnie’s Strawberry Le-Monade, Daisy’s Garden Vegetables, Pluto’s Pirate Booty, Mickey’s Sweet Mallows, Pete’s Oreos and Gwennie Mouse’s Cookies. Also served cheddar cheese cut out with a Mickey cookie cutter.
Delicious strawberry lemonade served in Minnie mason jars with striped black and pink straws. The kids had small jars and taller ones for the adults. The lemonade was very tasty with fresh cut strawberries. Also for adults a splash of Vodka makes it a great afternoon drink!
Donald’s dogs are made from turkey hotdogs, cut up into small bites and then wrapped with Pillsbury dough. They turned out yummy and tasted better than the pre-made kind.
Pirate booty is always a big hit with the kids. Personally, Clarabelle’s chips & the cheetos were my favorite!
Chris dipped marshmallows in pink Wilton candy melts and then rolled in pink sprinkles (also Wilton) on the outside. The Oreo cookies are prepared the same, dipped in the candy met and then pink sprinkles. The idea came for these from the yummy Fish Marshmallow Pops we had at Gavin’s birthday. However, the pink sprinkles on the outside didn’t taste good,in my opinion, but the kids did enjoy them. At least they look beautiful! I’d recommend trying smaller sprinkles that taste yummy for these to work. Including something else to balance it out like graham cracker crust or even Oreo crust would make it taste better .
We served yummy vanilla and chocolate cupcakes. To get the bright pink color for the frosting I used Wilton icing seen in the Fish Cupcakes. It’s awesome how many more color options you get with this product. On top there’s an edible fondant black Minnie silhouette with a cute pink bow, ordered these from Etsy (ClaudiaCupcakeLady). Then added round sprinkle balls (also Wilton). Thank you to my awesome cupcake designer Nicole (seen here decorating: owl cupcakes, fish cupcakes, & train cupcakes) she sure creates beautiful creations and is so great with the frosting!
Ordered two dozen custom Minnie Mouse sugar cookies from Etsy (SugarySweetCookies). There were number 2’s and also Minnie heads with Gwen’s name on them. Of all the sugar cookies we’ve gotten for the last three parties, these were the best tasting. Her designs are beautiful and I hope to have her cookies again.
Chris made a mini cake with the rest of the mix for the birthday girl. It was perfect for the candles but too big for her to eat. She picked at the frosting and then ended up eating a pink cupcake.
After baking the cupcakes I put them into pink & blue polka dot cupcake liners. They look so beautiful & colorful because they aren’t stuck to the cupcake like the liner it’s baked with. Not to mention the added liner makes them look great for photos!
The kids loved the Minnie piñata. There are strings hanging from it, each kid takes one, they all pull at one time and the candy falls to the floor. It was really exciting to open it up and it looked so pretty hanging from the ceiling.
The dessert table with lots of sweets!!
The birthday girl’s blue chevron dress and Minnie Mouse polka dot hair clips. See this post for more info on the dress & hair clips.
A table with the paper purse favor bags. Inside the bags there are the DIY Minnie Mouse water bottles & a plush Minnie or Mickey.
Made a favor sign for the party favors and also displayed the party invite on the table. We had two bigger Minnie dolls for Gwen & her best friend.
Hung colorful pom-poms and swirl decorations. Tied the balloon bunch to her high chair and a few other bunches were around the house.
Hung the pink & blue Minnie ribbon wreath in the hallway.
Hung the scalloped birthday banner above the fireplace.
Made some extra paper bows after the door sign & cut a big Minnie silhouette out to play pin the bow on Minnie.
You can create & cut the Minnie with the Silhouette Cameo. I explain how to make the Minnie/Mickey shape in the water bottle post. After making the shape for the bottles it was easy to enlarge it to 12 inches. The kids had fun playing this game.
Happy Birthday Minnie subway art. It’s fun to mix fonts & colors to create a cute sign.
Ordered a big Minnie mylar balloon and took it to the party store to have it filled with the rest of the balloons. The kids loved playing with the life size Minnie balloon.
Here’s the front side of the chevron dress, the flower & sash are very cute!
Borrowed a pink polka dot table cloth for the gift table. Thank you Alita! Here’s a link to Alita’s Minnie party.
Hope you enjoyed seeing the photos from the Minnie party! We certainly enjoyed the Minnie birthday bow-tique!
