Minnie Mouse is one of our all time favorite characters and when we had the opportunity to create an adorable Minnie Mouse party to share over on Oriental Trading Company’s Fun 365, we jumped at the chance! We love Minnie’s classic characteristics and wanted to play off of those to create a feminine and fancy Minnie Mouse Birthday Party. You can catch all of the details for this event over on Oriental Trading Company Fun 365, but for now, check out some full sneaks peaks of this sweet and girly party!
We decided to do opt for a more feminine color scheme by choosing pink and black versus Minnie’s classic pairing of red and black. We wanted to maintain some of Minnie’s classic details so we decided to incorporate plenty of bows, polka dots and girly elements.
The centerpiece was one of our very favorite party elements! We used adorable marquee lighting to spell out our birthday girl’s age and added some sweet detailing by bringing in Minnie Mouse ears and a pretty satin bow on top. We also incorporated some DIY Minnie Mouse silhouette floral centerpieces. You can get the full step by step tutorial for this diy centerpiece on Oriental Trading Company Fun 365 here.
We also created a classic milkshake recipe with a Minnie Mouse twist! You can get our full recipe over on Oriental Trading Company Fun 365!
We also included plenty of fresh flowers for a chic and elegant touch to keep our party high end looking without a high price tag. We displayed our flowers in an array of Oriental Trading Company vases to achieve the perfect look.
Our favorite party element was our DIY Minnie Mouse Party Plates! These plates are not only adorable, but they are so easy to assemble and look perfect on the party table! We added a simple and delicious Minnie Mouse inspired cupcake to our plates by dressing up some store bought cupcakes in the perfect lace wrapper, some Oreo cookie ears and a sweet fondant bow. You can catch our full step by step DIY tutorial for these darling plates over on Oriental Trading Fun 365 along with more diy ideas and recipes!
