Disney is such a popular theme for a first birthday party. I’ve actually been to my share of Mickey Mouse birthday parties for first birthdays. And, that’s without having my own kids and their friends. But you can have a Mickey Mouse birthday party at any age.
Kids always love Mickey Mouse. I mean, my cousin just went to Disney with her mom last month and she’s … well, one year plus another 29.
But how do you throw a great Mickey Mouse party? Just follow our tips below.
How To Throw A Terrific Mickey Mouse Birthday Party
You need to start your Mickey Mouse-themed birthday party with invitations. That’s how your guests will know that you are having a Mickey Mouse party. You can start with these Disney Mickey Fun and Friends Invitations. They scream “Party” … literally. The word is written huge and in all caps right across the front of the invitation. Your guests will definitely know that you’re having a party.
When they get there, you need Mickey Mouse decorations too. Decorate with items like the Disney Mickey Fun and Friends Centerpiece.
Plus, if your child loves Mickey Mouse, you probably have a bunch of Disney plush dolls. Put those around your home, wherever the party is, and you have instant — and free — decorations. Free is my favorite price.
If you decide to have cupcakes, think about making the cupcakes my friend Michelle made (above).
Frost them with red frosting, then top with mini Oreo cookies. Those are Mickey Mouse’s ears. Then, pipe a little white chocolate to make buttons, and you’re done. Adorable. Feeling less creative? Print out a Mickey Mouse face, tape it to a toothpick, and stick it in a cupcake.
You can even grab a Mickey Mouse cookie cutter and use it to shape Rice Krispy treats. Swirl red and white icing or chocolate on top and display them with your cupcakes.At the party, you’ll need some form of entertainment. Don’t forget about Mickey Mouse games.
You can also think about a Mickey Mouse photo booth. You can totally make your own homemade Mickey Mouse decorations, like my friend Michelle did.
Get a piece of foam board and cut out the center. Paint the top half black and the bottom half red. When it dries, paint white buttons on the red portion and then Mickey Mouse faces. If you want, you can use wooden or foam letters to put the birthday child’s name up on the black portion.
